Alpha and Omega, a guide for new capsuleers

Greetings Alpha persons. Welcome to space.

So, you're probably a little bit overwhelmed at the sheer amount of information and possibilities that you are now suddenly confronted with.

So, I, as one of the greatest IGS posters of the modern era, have decided to help guide you, and help you avoid some of the common missteps that newly immortal individuals make.

1. Do not shoot the stargate.

This is quite a common error, especially for very new pilots. In the heat of battle, things can become very confused, and often, a new pilot ends up shooting the stargate by mistake. This can have severe consequences in high or low security space.

2. Do not warp-jam the stargate.

There have been very, very, few reported instances of a stargate warping away, so it is generally considered unimportant to warp-jam one. Also, consequences.

3. Do not web the stargate.

It's not going anywhere, so webbing it doesn't really help. Also, consequences.

4. Do not ECM, Sensor damp, tracking disrupt, or target paint, the stargate.

These measures are generally sub-ideal for achieving your tactical objectives. Also, consequences.

5. Obtain a useful tactical overview settings profile.

This helps you to avoid mistakes 1-4, and also to quickly find the things you want to shoot at, and the things you want to run away from. Caution: be sure to keep it up to date regularly. As new ship types enter the capsuleer market, such as the tactical destroyers, they are not always added to overview settings, which has taken many pilots by surprise, as they are engaged by enemies they didn't even know were there.

6. Read contracts carefully before accepting.

Almost every contract you see posted in local communication in market hub zones is not a good deal, and in many cases is a scam or trap of some type.

7. Do not buy cheap pleasure devices.

There are many pleasure devices now sold that cater to the capsuleer market, including devices that plug into your spinal sockets, that promise direct stimulation of the brain, instead of inefficient twiddling of your fleshy bits. They are of variable quality, and as ever, you get what you pay for. Noble Appliances devices are of the highest quality, though Gallente manufactured devices come in a staggeringly bizarre plethora of forms.

8. Do not share your pleasure devices.

That's how you get viruses. Eww. Ewwww. Eeeewwwwwwww.


So, by avoiding these 8 common mistakes, you too can achieve greatness in the field of being a capsuleer.

I find that all this unwarranted violence towards Stargates, perpetained by Alpha clones, to be entirely unnecessary.

9. The New Eden Store will want to sell you tattoos. But don't get them, because the Red God hates tattoos.

10. Don't use warp stabs...... There, it had to be said.

11. Don't mix guns

12. No one doubles your isk, your an idiot if you think otherwise

13. Lowsec and null are only dangerous if you let your guard down

14. Highsec is far from safe if you aren't paying attention

15. Join a Corp, you'll go alot further if you do

Please just leave the stargates alone. They work very hard for us all and don't deserve any grief.

There's nothing to look at. Move along, citizens, move along.
