Next thing you know, itll be perfectly acceptable as 1v1 to titan drop 40 drakes on a velator, then post gf in local.Roll

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

a good trick to get a solo fight is to warp to a plex at 100k and slowly move away from the accel gate.

if multiple ships come after you you can try to seperate them. Bookmarks, warp-to-me or combat probes do not work around the accel gate.. nice place to have fun.

however you shouldn't use a dangerous looking ship otherwise you will wait forever

.. and you have always the option to run if they just dont want to fight alone (e.g if you can't seperate them)

(you can also make it very obvious that you want a fight, e.g by warping with a T2 frig to a minor gate which obviously does not fit into the plex)

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

So I have been trying out solo PVP lately in FW, and I'm loving it, even if it can be more risky than flee However, I'm finding that some people manage to get away from me, and I'm looking for advice on how to be a deadlier solo PVPer Pirate

My comp is this: boosting loki running skirmish + armor links, cloaky loki with webs and scram, bait frig, and two falcons.

Well, if the office didn't know I was browsing the forums, they do now...

that's because you enjoy watching grown men cry

no more games... it's real this time!!!

The sad thing is. Nobody but the OP is 100% sure whether it is a troll post or not.

You might consider fitting a cyno to your bait ship; that way you can sit on the warp-in and be sure of your tackle before you cyno in your main.

I'm a bit concerned about the lack of logi in your little gang.

It's not true solo pvp unless you use 700 reapers.

Nice troll.

But the OP has a point because there actually are people doing exactly that who consider it "solo pvp".

What u need is one bait ship, then have 5 smartbombing bses cloaked beside it.
Or you can be a real man and just get a rifter and hunt him down solo! Scam, boom

I think this would work better with a titan in system giving boosts.

It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

In my solo pvp setup I try to be as homogeneous as possible with fits between my 6 accounts. My booster is usually the only one that is not in the same fit. I also have a new theory of using 4 DPS drones and one EWAR drone per ship as to max out the potential for jams/damage while at the same time not losing all of my ECM if one ship gets popped. I also have been placing alts that are in opposition militias cloaked throughout the pipeline so I can get a good look at fleets and intel from mil chat about people coming to bust up my plexing. My next plan is to get a tracking expendable dread fit with rails and sensor boosters to cyno in on things that I have scrammed webbed and jammed.

I still need to obtain an account that is a cloaky hauler to come and scoop the wrecks and resupply the fuel to the cyno and dread. I figure that once I am around 12-13 accounts I can then do solo pvp very well.

Ive been solo pvping for years. used to use several alts.. yes, it was lame. But having that falcon, or armor repper was insta win.

Truth is I get no satisfaction from fleet pvp. Its boring, its lame, and its very low risk. I lose a lot of ships. Even though I dont attack everything within sight. For example, an hour ago I was tackled by a imperial slicer in my ferox, he tried kiting me but Im setup for that so I scared him away. Before I finished aligning I had a cane warp in, got tackle on me. So I put cane in optimal and engaged. Turns out the cane had all neuts, no guns lol. Just held me there capless until a bunch of his corp mates jumped in system and ganked me. Was no fun, and pissed me off how lame it was.

But every now and then I find a really good fight, even if I lose its still fun.. And worth the ugly killboard. I mean really, no one looks at killboards unless thee looking at ship fittings, or your trying to join a 0.0 corp which is funny cuz they dont pvp much anyways. On some days like today I lost a 60 mil ferox, and a 75 mil worm. Got 0 kills. But some days Ill get 5-7 kills and no losses.

Its the way of a solo pvper, just accept it.. Its not your tactics or your skills. Most eve players will say you dont pvp smart. pvping "smart" is when you dont pvp unless your 99% sure you will win. That is 0 risk, cowards pvp, and extremely boring. You spend 80% of your time scanning, checking, using scouts. most targets will get away anyways. Having a 98% efficiency k/d ration means wat to who?

Only corps looking to upgrade and make a move to 0.0.

Just work your fittings. Battleclinic is awefull for solo pvpers and most of the recommended fittings wont work. Especially if you fly caldari.

These guys, that use 2-13 accounts for solo pvp.. Trust me its no fun. And its sorry.

Bro, this is a 5 on 1, not solo pvp.

Fight those frigs in your own frig and win, then ill be impressed. Why do you need all this for frigs? just sit inside the accell gates to get fights. Yes I did do fw and no I didnt use boosters. Come on....
