Really good videos and a great idea.

I know you have loads of ISK Garmon, but if you want to bring PVP to the masses, flying a Machariel with a Republic Fleet Warp Disruptor and gods knows what else Faction Goodies and Implants is probably not the way to go unless it is really what you need to succeed.

Is it?


We're aware of this issue. We're actually going to release a few more couple of videos this weekend which will focus on much more accessible stuff to the casual player (that'll be unlinked and without super expensive stuff).

It's probably going to be solo Wolf and Rupture action


Thanks, those two are both really good.

Will your vid should have the fitting in it, but it's not hard to find in the comments for the vid I guess.

Keep em coming!


Yeah I forgot, sorry =)

Great videos, my only complaint is that the voice audio quality is ****, and very hard to hear on the video on engagement.

Yea I agree, if that blogger had any credibility before then it's all gone now with that terrible article.

Some facts:
- This mechanic, now deemed exploit, has been in the game and known about for at least 3-4 years if not more.
- It has been used by faction NPCs to kill players before they could warp for same amount of time.
- It has been used by players to kill other players including JFs well before Garmon did it.
- It has been petitioned numerous times by many different people. The entire time it has been "working as intended".

If you are going to fault us for understanding game mechanics well enough to use them to our full advantage then I guess we are guilty. I would hope that people that follow this site would expect that of us.

However if you are going to call us exploiters when we haven't used the mechanic since it's status was changed to exploit then frankly you're pretty dumb.

Are we glad it's being fixed? Of course, we've lost ships to it as well and we think you should be able to cancel warp and dock up on a station. This entire situation however is being blown way out of proportion.

AN EXPLOIT WAS DISCOVERED AND NOT REPORTED.

THAT is violation of EULA writ LARGE

You have not a grain of sand to stand on with this one. Sorry.

Enuff about silly hacks, wheres new vids coming?

Also, for newer players, hows about you guys start a new alt, and do a video log of it progressing over say 3 months and show what can be done from day one.

Hit the critics in the mouth, list the skillplan used and show some low sp goings on.

Make it a side series maybe, as well as vids for how with ok sp you can improve your pvp style / success

I get the impression is that this site is to encourage people that they too can play well if they just think a little more. And encourage I am sure you are achieving.

Looking forward to your ongoing efforts :)

We've added another video this one is about scouting and using the directional scanner. A few other topics are briefly touched upon as well such as setting a route and fitting theory for fleet tackle frigates.

Make sure to also check out the accompanying article for more in-depth discussion about various topics such as:

Types of Ships commonly used to scout
Fitting for T1 Frigates and Fleet Interceptors
Using the Directional Scanner
Reporting Intel to your FC
Moving through LowSec and NullSec in Non-Scouting Ships

Haven't actually watched the videos yet, but stuff like this is awesome both for new players and people like me who still might pick up a finer point or two.

To those not wanting to use border gates into low / null:

You can try to find a wormhole route if you want to "drop behind the lines" so-to-speak. Just get a T1 scan frigate off the market or from the scanning tutorial and lots of core scanner probes. Look for wormholes in highsec (particularly X702s into Class 3 wormhole systems). Right-click the wormhole and click 'Show Info.' If it doesn't say "This wormhole is reaching the end of its natural lifetime," or, "This wormhole has had it's mass critically disrupted...," hop in. If the other side is camped, wait out your session change and jump back (5km jump range on wormholes means you usually spawn in jump range). Otherwise, plug the system into sites like wormnav.com or staticmapper.com and see if it has a guaranteed connection to Lowsec or Nullsec for you to use. MAKE SURE TO BOOKMARK EVERYTHING!!! Once you've bookmarked both sides of the wormholes you want to use, then you can go get your Rupture or other pvp ship and use the route. Don't bring expensive implants since wormhole systems are fair game for bubbles and bombs.

It is still a good idea to practice getting away from gate camps at some point, but going through a wormhole gives you some advantages when you want to play with nullsec people who may have eyes in surrounding systems. Plus you get practice scanning which is always a useful skill to have.
