What do I need to know as someone who hasn't played in almost 10 years?

As the title says. I was an avid PVPer in 2008ish, but quit and haven’t really been back since. What’s changed, and what do I need to know to get back into PVP now?

Edit: BTW, are there any tools to help determine how to fit a ship?

  • you must have 200 accounts to win a fight
  • In highsec NPCs will kill you now
  • Everything costs 4x as before
  • Level 4 mission payout is less
  • If you fight goons, they crash the node to “win”
  • Most ships have changed since Cruicible and I strongly advise to read all the patch notes
  • We have medium, large and x-large stations that you can spam all over the place
  • You must(nt) input-broadcast 20 motherships to make infinite isk like goons and the like
  • You can warp to 0km now
  • We have a fitting simulator in client now

No go out there and be pvper


Oh man where does one begin? There’s just too much. I would maybe watch some youtube videos and read some patch notes, but here’s the cliff notes:

-Battlecruisers & hacs aren’t all anybody flies anymore
-Faction warfare was redone from the ground up and people play it more
-probing is easier
-everything is more expensive but it’s also easier to make isk
-salvage is almost worthless now
-planetary interaction is a thing now but no one really pays attention to it
-they added weird special wormholes
-you can group weapons now lol
-t2 rigs and implants are actually affordable now, go ahead and indulge yourself
-there are level 4 missions called burner missions that you do in frigates and they pay a lot of isk
-pos’es are on their way out and being replaced by citadels, citadels cost more to upkeep but they’re super powerful in fights.
-off grid links are gone now, replaced buy aoe command bursts
-a lot of new ships
-sov was redone from the ground up, better in some ways worse in others
-carriers are way different now and they can only use fighters, no more drones
-dreads can use “little” guns for shooting subcaps
-the rifter went from being the best frigate to one of the worst

I’ll post more if I think of anything else. Welcome back.

Ah cool, so that’s why a large t2 trimark “only” costs 150 million isk.

That would make it one of the mroe expensive, then, no?

Ccp look away boting runs rampant.
Ccp supported sp farming too.
Ganking unarmed and unwilling is leet.
Blob or be gone.
If you want to carebear go to null.
