Ignorant Question: Should I Join FW?

I joined FW when I was extremely low SP and can honestly say it is what you make of it.

If you run around the warzone humping buttons and running the second anything shows up on D-Scan then
1.) You're going to be bored to tears and frustrated because you're not making any cash-o-la
2.) You won't gain any skill

Fit the ship you are able to given your current skill, fight what comes your way, learn from the engagements, be fearless.

You're either going to love PvP and look forward to your next fight (this is a sign you should continue to FW) or you're going to find you're avoiding encounters as much as you can (you should not continue to FW).

I think I had about 40-50 losses before I got my first FW kill, and it was WORTH it because I've never had a more intense, satisfying gaming experience.

My other recommendation is that you try to join a FW corp. General militia is fine, and full of lively people, but until you're exposed to the greater conflict via an active FW corp, it's pretty lonely and a bit pointless (aside from the cash).

I was lucky enough to be accepted into JUSTK very early in my FW career. I think I'm still below their SP minimum, but they made a huge exception and brought in me (which I think they're still regretting Smile). I don't mind being the very worst of the very best because I know when I'm flying with them, whatever we're doing matters (edit: ... in Eve), and we're there because the objective needs to be accomplished.

I bought 20 lml condors when I first started out. And just went out and plexed and fought anybody who showed up. I made morenisk than the condors were worth and I learned a lot about all the different ships and weapon types in the game because of that. Went onto rocket kestrls after that an got my first solo kill.
