I dont really get why nobody mentioned Tuskers. Am i missing something? All i met in solo PVP have been super skilled, including dope maual piloting and shipchoice/fitting without going all blingmode to win.

And each i talked to after a fight were great sports, check them out!

Thanks for the shout out.

I think part of the 'problem' is that we've moved to wormhole space. In times past, you could just rock up to Hevrice in whatever ship you liked and find someone willing to give you a gudfite.

Now, we're a bit more like a traveling carnival. We jump through our null sec static, roam an area, and then our connection changes and we are in a completely different part of New Eden. Logistics is a challenge even for us, and we know where our hole is. Finding us by chance is very unlikely.

Amusingly, most of our lossmails now seem to come from hitting gate camps as we try to get from the market to our wormhole. Or perhaps it just feels that way.

If you like reading about low sec piracy or wormhole pvp, you might enjoy my blog.

I'm not sure if its been mentioned, but there is a chat channel dedicated to the solo pilot. Bringing solo back is the channel name, and tons of solo pvpers frequent it often.

Usually good conversation too.

Slightly offtopic but:

Might it help if CCP included an indicator on the targetted ships UI for when it is being linked by another ship?

Especially considering Command BCs are likely to become more frequent soon due to reduction/simplification of training times and the general link overhaul.

Ill leave it up for debate as to whether the indicator would classify the type of link in operation.
A simple colored dot could indicate type, or just a red/green one indicating if it is or is not currently linked.

Id think this would help in choosing "gudfights".
The advantage would be mutual:
-linked players can identify non-linked targets to engage.
-non-linked players can identify linked targets to avoid/escape
-non-linked players vs non-li ked players, and li ked pkayers vs linked players both know the parameters of the engagement.

This additional info may reduce the element of surprise/unknown, but since it is mutually advantageous, the status quo is largely maintained.

I may be biased in that ive never liked links as undetectable. I acknowledge that it is the prerogative of a more established/situated player to operate links (whether on their alt or from another player), but that alone is already sufficient concrete practical advantage. As above, I think it is fair and reasonable to suggest that it is outright indicated if a ship is linked, or not, rather than ascertaining it possibly too late in an engagement from heuristic observation of opponents performance as compared to expected outcome.

I think you are going to like the expansion, then.

Nice to see I still have the ability to kill a thread much easier than my ability to kill a ship Twisted

Oh and Taurean!! Welcome back mate!

Bringing solo back is nothing but a brag channel for people with hg implants (and previously links) to show off their shiny solo kills.


Also, you cant answer the question in the OP, because skill in eve comes in many different forms. Some people are incredibly successful solo pvpers but arent the best pilots. In fact piloting has very little to do with being a good solo pilot. Somone who only flies fotm in the right area and is very good at getting the fights he can win but only uses keep at range and orbit is a way more successful solo pvper then an amazing pilot who is flying the wrong ship in the wrong area.

Thats just how eve works, some very bad pilots have been mentioned here in this thread yet due to how they play they still get a lot of kills.

While the above happens often, there are also a lot of non-shiny soloists there.

I don't think you should focus on the best solo PvPers for your lesson.

If you do that it is like a beginning tennis fan trying to learn from Federer or Djokovic:

If you start trying to learn tennis by trying to hit heavy top-spin back hands, you are approaching it from the wrong direction.

Most tricks employing by top solo PvPers require a solid foundation in PvP basics, both in theory and in practice. Try focus on the basics first before trying to emulate the best.
