Cross-posting is bad. I know.

I came across this in the newbie forums, can anybody oblige this guy?

Ok, so I started off pretty gung-ho but I am starting to falter a bit and wondering what I am missing. Hoping you fine folks here will help me out as much as you did the first go round.

I am having a hard time finding fights. How should I go about doing that as a low-skilled character? My gut is telling me to either join a corp or join FW, but I am not certain that is right.

What I would love is a "Rookie Help" chat for those looking for the darker side of Eve Online. Coaching on suspect baiting, can flipping, ganking, espionage, awoxing, and all of these other cool things I read about and only have a marginal understanding of mechanically.

I don't enjoy missioning or mining really. I think I would really like high sec warfare, but how do I go about this early on?

I have half a mind to form my own corp, sell a plex for cash, and start warring on corps solo. I would surely lose a lot of ships, but it would be exciting! The only thing stopping me so far is the cash it would take (is it 50m to war?) with no guarantee that people would fight me. I suppose I could always just join other wars and hope for the best, but it seems like the big war corps are flying ships that would smoke my 75dps Rifter in a heartbeat.

I need a career agent for the darkside.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Working on getting in touch with him in-game. Can get him into teaching chat channels at any rate.

If you think you've won, think again.

I also mailed him, so he has decent options if he wants to go with either the Mercenary route or the Ganking route.

I saw that post too. Looking through his posting history, I found this one also

How does reinforcement work, exactly?

I saw a Mobile Depot floating in a belt where the career guy sent me to mine, and it had Russian writing so I decided to try to kill it. I went back to the space station, put guns on instead of miners, and went out to try my luck.

It took FOREVER. And then it didn't explode. I was close to killing the shields when it went invulnerable. A guy in local said that it was in reinforcement and I would have to wait until the timer ran out.

Will anyone else be able to kill it between now and then? What happens when it comes out of reinforced? Will it be open for anyone to kill it then, or just me, and how long does it stay vulnerable?

Thanks ahead of time. I am a handful of days into my trial and am having a good time, even though my first attempt at space piracy was a bust!

So he apparently skipped the career agents to try and blow people up sooner. I'm almost never in HS or I would help, but looks like he will fit in fine around here.

There really needs to be a career agent for emergent play. But, would that make it non-emergent if there was?

Is there a reason that you always want the lights turned off when we snuggles?

Calm down miner. As you pointed out, people think they can get away with stuff they would not in rl... Like for example illegal mining... - Ima Wreckyou*

I upgraded my account, so here I am.

Thanks Jonah for the cross-post and thanks to those of you that have extended offers to help show me the underbelly of the Eve universe. I look forward to exploding dangerously in the name of education.

Welcome to the big leagues, kid.

Now go out there and make the carebears cry .

Everything in EVE is a trap.

And if it isn't, it's your job to make it a trap...:)
