Did someone say solo in EVE was dead?

Scroll down to next-to-last chart in link. Shocked

And by a large margin too.

Hyper dunking.

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

I would say that nr divided by 3 is the actual nr of actual solo pvp kills... Cause lets face it.. Most of those ",solo kills " are gotten by people who smartbomb pods

Just because i am blond does not make me stoopid !

Most likely miner-ganking and lowsec smartbombing makes the biggest part of the solo kills. However, when people yell that "solo is dead", they often mean that a single ship, supported by three Logistics and two offgrid T3 boosters is hardly "solo", but will show up as such in any statistic. Only a very small part of the kills involving only one shooter are actually from fights where one single guy in one single combat ship fights another guy in a combat ship. These graphs and tables are as useful as every statistic that guy makes ever: Not at all.

I may have a different view on things but I think it underestimates the true rate of solo pvp.

Anytime a rat has engaged someone (eg. Inside FW complexes) the kills record as not solo, even when a fight really was a solo pvp kill.

So there are a lot of kills occurring in lowsec that have 2 ships as aggressors when it is a 1v1 fight.

So the figures, to a degree, under record the amount of solo pvp occurring.

This, or the classic... "Solo with 3 guardian neutral alts" in Highsec.

What I find shocking was how many Ishtars/Vexor/Navy Vex died last year... I mean they were invincible last year right, which is why we nerfed all drone mods and sentries?

CCP Quant: Of all those who logon in Eve, 1.5% do Incursions, 13.8% PVP and 19.2% run Missions while 22.4% mine.

40.7% Join a fleet. The idea that Eve is a PVP game is false, the social fabric is in Missions and Mining.

From the article:

75T damage was in highsec, 111 in lowsec, 155 in nullsec and 43 in WH space.


Just posting this here so that I dear high sec partisans friends can understand that a bunch of little frigates and the occasional frightwer going popin high sec doesn't make high sec "more dangerous", and that null (along with low) are still the destruction engines that make the EVE economy work.

You may now return to what ever bullshit that thread was actually about Cool

Though hyperdunking can not be done solo, it needs a second character to deploy ships.

After a year of everyone and their mother flying Ishtars and Tengus, what did you expect to have died the most? Surely not Drakes or Hurricanes I presume. (Hint: Only ships flown can get shot down.)

That won't appear on the killmail and thus not on the statistic. Therefore it counts as "solo".

For you, yes. For every THINKING person who knows it can not be done solo, it doesn't. Lol

It's like saying you went on a roam and killed people solo, with your ogb and logi alts. Lol

You don't have to explain it to me. I don't consider it a solo kill, which is why I don't think this statistic is worth jack ****. Solo is still dead.

Wait a sec. Did someone just cite Gevlon as a source and they were being serious? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
Just because his "stats" say it's so, doesn't mean it's actually so. Good luck finding all that solo PvP. The quickest route to it is climbing into a terrible fit frigate and flying into a blob. When one of them oneshots you, congrats, you just died in solo PvP.

Yes ...
Post being how the solo stats are grossly inflated and useless.

Plenty of little frigates roaming around Null Sec and orbiting FW plexes. Blink

Doesn't take a genius to figure out that total damage is a **** stat to use to prove your point... Since there are ships in null that CAN take so much more damage than anything in highsec Roll

You want to pump your chest out like that big boy? Look at those lowsec numbers... that is where real pvp apparently takes place. Not your little blue donut ring.
