Nice effort! Might want to add a link to a more extensive list of abbreviations as well so you don't have to type every single one. There are several out there to choose from.

Though looking at that page now perhaps it could use some work. They've defined AAR as after-action report instead of ancillary armor rep...

thanks for the feedback, when it comes to the abbreviations I was really just going for the ones they would hear the most but Ill take a look at that and see what I can do!

Personally I've only ever heard AAR used for Ancillary armor repairer. Experiences may vary I suppose. Either way, great work!

First page mentions insurance for T2 ships not being necessary. T2's actually have decent insurance now, its only faction that is trash.

Thanks for the feedback! after some thought I decided to change it to just always check for insurance because some money is better then no money.

Couple suggested refinements:

Probably add Gate Camping into your quick-ref lexicon there.

Ganking refers to killing people in high-sec space specifically when they aren't a 'legal' target, not just killing freighters/indy in general.

You should specify that your page of hotkeys is "default" hotkeys, and that they can be remapped in the escape menu. Since pretty much everyone either does that or wants to if they didn't know.

One of the most useful things for a new player guide is how the overview/interface works, since 90% of it makes no bleeding sense whatsoever, so that'd be a good next section to add if you want to turn this into a standard guide.

Maybe edit the bit about drones to mention that there's little point using large drones on frigates due to tracking and sig res. Currently all that page shows is that large ones to MOAR DAMAGE, which is a common newbie mistake we should probably avoid in future. I like the initiative tho +1.

an obvious typo here:

Ganking: Means destroying some bodies ship to get the cargo specifically in High Sec space. Not even freighters in high-sec are safe, since there have been attacks with fleets of Catalysts all attacking the same freighter. Destroying it before CONCORD destroyed them.


Should be somebody's not some bodies (as in a set amount of bodies).

and nope

Implants are fitted into a jump clone's "slots".


They are fitted in you current active clone, a jump clone is clone whom you can 'jump into' but otherwise has nothing do with JC's aside from each clone having their own set of implants.

Better just delete that line as your later explanations are correct and more precise.

Also you forgot to mention sentries and geckos on your drone list.
