Blame an alliance that wasn't involved when you give your stuff away. (We think this is pure gold).

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Wow, I enjoyed that from beginning to end. John Drees has that kind of pleasant, calming voice that could make a man contract his life away.

Always web before scram!

Edit: reading fail I was beaten to it in the first page! O\

I've seen this bad advice twice in this thread. What goes wrong if someone webs first? It seems like solid newbie logic to use both modules - web and scram. Can they both be used, but scram needs to go first? Does webbing first make the scrambler inactive? or is it because webbing reduces the ship's needed velocity to initiate warp, allowing them to warp away even faster?


Webbing lowers top speed, if that target was in the process of aligning to warp out then webbing generally makes them warp away instantly.

Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better.

EDIT: Just to stress how critical proper spelling is, the correct spelling of parlay is parley. Did you notice? If you did not, write it down.
Parlais, it's French. Do your homework before you show your butt.

There just isn't anything that can be said!

Parlay is derived from the French parlais.

When someone gives you the title 'Pope of New Eden' and 'Harbinger of Faith'... take it to heart and dress up as the part.

Then if that was not enough... go to Fanfest.

Also... don't take the drugs your wife's doctor is trying to give while telling you that Eve is not real. pffffttt

(wait, is this good advice or bad advice..... gahhhhh)

When travelling in 0.0 and finding hostiles in your system just warp directly to the exit gate so you can leave the system faster.

Proper clothes, makeup and a new hairstyle wouldn't hurt you.

Carry repair drones to fix yourself up after a fight.

If you bump your target then they can't escape your incoming bomb.

Warm up your Reactive Armour by having you gang or fleet shoot you to balance your resists.
