It’s a shame to see a newbie go away over something that is so much overestimated in Eve. Unless it’s venture mining there’s pretty simple rules to greatly reduce the odds of getting killed:
1} avoid having too much in cargo value in general - no 500mil loads in a t1 transport or dozens mil isk compressed ore in a venture
2) move to quieter region - it also means less competition
3} ask away how to properly tank a ship - no weird stuff like empty module slots on a tanky ship like Procurer or Skiff in mining for example
4} don’t fly something you can’t afford to lose, especially into lowsec or wormholes
Can getting killed happen? You follow these and it’s just bad luck. But more likely no death may happen for months even or longer.
It’s really simple but meanwhile a newbie gets pvp elitists crawling over his thread. There are surely means to avoid pvp, there’s this whole side of pve in the game, so excuse me, what the ■■■■ are you even doing in this forum subsection? Acting high and mighty, providing no help whatsoever where there is pretty clear help to provide? With one guy lol getting annoyed at a newbie he dares to seek side of the game that elitist denies to exist, even though it’s clearly there? This should be a bannable offense in here.
