Been away from even since 2016, thinking of coming back and bringing some friends this time. Need some help to wrap my head around all the new stuff that was added to the game in the mean time that might help them to get into the game easier.
I see there’s some “proving grounds” thing, but googling it only brings up articles from September with not a lot of detail. From what i gathered it’s some sort of timed pvp arenas that rotate allowed hull sizes and number of ships. Where can i read more about it?
As for PvE - used to be that solo missions/ratting/exploration is more profitable solo (or with an alt) and group PvE is when you can’t bring enough alts, i.e. incursion sites. Maybe some new pve activity appeared, more geared towards 2-3 people doing it in a “fleet” with different roles?
My friends are coming from more traditional mmo’s where low level content is often “co-op” and small scale pvp more structured. They don’t want to join a corp immediately but would like to play together from the beginning. Ratting or exploring for isk while sitting on comms just not to die of boredom would probably not be their thing. If they’ll like the game joining a corp and doing proper pvp would ofc be on the menu.
