Hi Everyone;

So i'm looking for a little feedback on each of the two ships.

from what i see both are effective in solo pvp.

Sabre seems like a bit more of a learning plan and really has advantages in WH and Null where bubbles are deployable.

Svipul .. so somone if they are inclined explain what the whole .. is cancer thing to me, I would appreciate it.
everyone seems unhappy meeting one.

based on reading either / both are very good at the solo game, however Svipul seems easier to get into?


I am a miner, mission runner, and explorer...

or as EVE Online would have it...

If i'm in a rupture or some cruiser and a svi was on scan to hunt me down, i'd assume it's a solo pilot looking for a fight. "...let's give it a shot..."

If I see a sabre on scan, I imagine his buddies are on a gate in the next system ready to jump my ass. "..ah fawk warp out.."

..that's just my simple way of thinking of the 2 ships.

Both are good choices. However, some people think Svipul is OP and won't engage. All depends whom you are after. A lot of advantages with a sabre and the bubbles. Cloaky sabre is fun too.

clearly sabre. Better at catching (cloaky) stuff which runs away, and people will run faster from a svipul than from a sabre.
