Alpha making the thread edition

>Can I make enough ISK for PLEXing?
Actually, training 5M of a selection of 20M SP is F2P now, as is playing with the skills listed here:

Reminder to never trust anybody in this thread with fits, ever.

>I just started, what should I do?
Do the Opportunities then find the Career Agents & run all of their missions. They give you ISK, ships, skillbooks and teach you basics. Talk to players and try to find a corp.

>Is it too late to start playing EVE?

I'd prioritize durability over damage since this is obviously a fleet ewar support ship and replace one of the DDAs with another ENAM.

Looks good, although I would fit more tank over DDA personally.

Also, I'd investigate the price of that t2 rig.

T2 rig was only 5m surprisingly, thought it might be stupid like trimarks at first.

Yeah I guess 2nd ENAM makes resists a lot less shit and 40 damage isn't important on support

How do i even get started in pvp? I assume just flying around lowsec or nullsec solo would just lead to me getting fucked at a random gate.

get m8s

Join a corp.
You can learn how to pvp on your own and it's the most awful, unfun way to play this shitty newfag slaying simulator.

join horde

you'll have a decent staging area, 24/7 fleets and safe ratting systems

>safe ratting systems

Join NPSI fleets for various fleet experience while remaining a free agent. Slam your head against a wall in faction warfare for some solo experience and 'fair' fights. Cloaky gank some explorers/huffers in a wormhole near one of the market hubs for 'unfair' fights.

Those three should give you an idea what kind of active pvp you enjoy in Eve.

>I assume just flying around lowsec or nullsec solo would just lead to me getting fucked at a random gate.

You can learn to take precautions to avoid it (or avoid it most of the time).

Learning PVP solo is a huge pain because every fight has a ton of factors leading up to it. The sheer number of losses you have to experience to kill something is demotivating, and you won't be getting regular feedback.

When you play with others, not only can you enjoy better quality PVP, you can also improve quicker as you get told what you did wrong.

Thanks, what kinda ship and fitting are expected in these? Would Destroyers be accepted until I learn more normally?

Answering that question is a big part of skill in this game, and it's different for every area in the game.
If you want to fight in lowsec facwar gay shit, you get a frigate of some sort, most commonly a federation navy comet. If you want to join a public fleet (NPSI fleet), you bring whatever cheap shit you are told to bring (probably some T1 cruiser), if you are in some gay nullblob, you bring their doctrine ships which they should be telling you about, if you're in a wormhole corp, you should have a variety of scouting, moneymaking and combat ships, if you're suicide ganking in highsec or such homosexual matters, you get a catalyst, brutix, bomber or talos.
There's a lot of variety in the game when it comes to pretty much every element of it, but pvp is the main and by far be biggest one.

Best corp for an alpha? my char was born on the 19th and I'm just flying around doing sister's of eve shit in a Maller and I've got some spare frigs and an Omen sitting around (waiting for drones to train to use that). I do fully intend to go omega status eventually but I see no reason not to take my time and get that free 5mil sp first. Should I even bother looking for a long-term corp this early? I feel pretty ineffectual.

Would like to get into pvp and maybe eventually mining.

sry for the rookie help channel tier post

Attached: RCO003.jpg (1041x1600, 288K)

Find some random shitter high-sec corp in the recruitment channel if you just want people to chat and mine moons with. While doing that you can join NPSI channels and go on the fleets that are alpha friendly to get your pvp fix.

I'd suggest you join Mercenary Academy instead of a big blob. It is still null, and you will have mid, and large scale fights but the Focus is on small roams and deployments lotsa different environments whether it is null, WH, lowsec or even highsec wars. You don't get free stuff thrown at you but lots of opportunities and great people to learn from without being attention whores or arrogant wanna-be emperors

>Sane rules cause people who think free speak means being able to insult other people or discuss conspiricies centered around religion in an online video game to consider abandoning it.

It works better than expected. Maybe rules of conduct aren't bad after all.

It's still one of the cheapest ways to generate useful amounts of isk actively.

>best corp
Relative, depending on what you want. If you just want to stay in high sec then there's no real point in getting a corp. You might want to make your own corp in that case for 0% taxes. If you want to move into null or wspace then getting a corp will make things pretty smooth, but you rely on others for some stuff.
>Should I even bother looking for a long-term corp this early?
I joined a corp within a week of starting the game because fuck high sec and its income. You dont need a long term corp, but moving or selling assets can be annoying depending on where you are and what you have to sell.
Keep in mind that each person usually has 2-3 alts when you're looking at the members of a corp to join.

Few questions before I consider beginning this finally.

>Will I pretty much get annihilated when leaving the safe areas if im not associated with a huge corp?
>Can I pretty much play strictly doing hauling, trading and planetary interaction?
>Should I feel obligated to multibox or own multiple accounts to be successful?
>How much can you actually get done while F2P before you need to sub? Dont sugar coat it

hold out for the game being even more free than it is

and hopefully by then it wont be on life support pull the plug already


Attached: maq.png (768x768, 471K)

You barely make more isk ratting in a rattlesnake and you're risking several times as much.

>Will I pretty much get annihilated when leaving the safe areas if im not associated with a huge corp?
You die when you're stupid, chances of dying increase or decrease according to the area
>Can I pretty much play strictly doing hauling, trading and planetary interaction?
Hauling with alpha skills is a waste of time since you're locked to t1 industrials, which have wet paper for tank and small cargoholds. PI cant be done by alphas. Trading is viable until you actually have money or have the patience to log in multiple characters.
>Should I feel obligated to multibox or own multiple accounts to be successful?
Due to the slow nature of the game, multiboxing means more profits for the same invested time. Optional for PvP.
>How much can you actually get done while F2P before you need to sub? Dont sugar coat it
The skillpoints would be the main limit since you're given 5m for free then you gotta sub to get more.
If you're a cheap faggot then you probably wont have issues with the alpha limitations for a while. Alphas train at half the speed though, which is annoying.
