great vid! Was waiting for the TD icon on the EWAR bar for some reason, nobody uses those in nullsec? ;)

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

I'm not discounting any of kovorix's skill, but he doesn't have any TE's or TC's fit. That's pretty OP when clearing all that tackle and those drones, he was able to track it all no prob, With Scorch.

Well the number is .076 mate, and has been that way for some time - the zealot has always been a good anti-tackle ship with the exact same range and stats. Was it OP before?

It doesn't track as well as you think. Certainly a good inty pilot will avoid most damage - observe the Ares during the gang fight, he's very difficult to take down and not just because of the logi. An inty in a 20k orbit can't be hit, and takes quite a few heated mwd cycles to break the orbit.

Far more valuable than a TE of TC is the nanofibre + Locus II rig, which adds 5k to the optimal, making it 40k+5, and increasing your speed. Most frigates simply aren't expecting high volleys at that range, hence the failure to create transversal. Burning directly away and heating the guns gives plenty of time between 40k and 10k for a dead frig.

he was bouncing between approach and keep at range and was very careful to not create any additional transversal vel. You wouldn't hit anything if you would orbit. Not to mention that the omen goes 2.5km/s without heat, so if you run away from the fight the tackler will have to chase you which makes them an easy target, once its dead you approach again.

so, if something is op its the agility of the ship, not the weapon given that a single crucifier would have spoiled all the fun ;)

7/10, good albeit basic piloting, good heat management, good fights.


Baffles me again and again how you manage to find that many dumb people to kill. I need to roam null more.

I mostly agree with what you're saying - 0.0 has a lot of pretty bad pilots compared to low sec, and there are a few fights in the video that I feel a bit dirty including because of clearly poor fits and flying, namely the Co2 one.

However, there are VERY few interesting fights in solo pvp videos that are against competent pilots, and this is especially true when flying without links. I had a number of fights in 0.0 against better gangs in the last month, and while they are a blast to have, they make for very boring fraps - kind of like fighting a brick wall. Competent gangs fly consistent and smart setups. A lone talos would never be caught 70k away from the gang, tacklers are more crafty, and they adapt by bringing counters like rapiers/sentry domis (ugh). The result is kind of like a sparring match, where tackle dies sometimes and that's about it.

That said, I believe there is a certain skill in drawing out bad decisions and stupidity from gangs (just ask Aldap Smile).

Thanks for the feedback, it's definitely something I have mixed feelings about.

Great vid!

It kinda dragged a bit for me (being a kite vid w/ next to no variety), but that doesn't change that fact that it's all quality footage and great fights.

Keep it up mang! I gotta get back to work ><

Please ignore the elitist sentiment W0lf gives off. He deliberately posts in this style to elicit a response (trolling).

This was another excellent video and I like how you seem to effortlessly showcase the effectiveness of a particular ship or fit. I have no idea how much time went into getting the footage you have but you do seem to be able to draw the very best out of a setup. That's why your vids are so enjoyable, not because they feature perfect performances against high-tier players exclusively. You consistently solo (proper solo, not baddie linked solo) against the odds. Even if it's against poor pilots, their numbers really work to their advantage so don't be put off by snide posters who have yet to prove their own competence P

Anyway great vid and great music choices.

Loved it. Kept me entertained throughout.

Target selection was awesome, it is fairly bemusing that no one seemed to have a scram + web, while all wanted to brawl you down ... also.. so much ECM drone spammage, ugh.

Anyhow, you dont choose how your opponents fit or fly - top job !
