Being perma jammed. Best space myth for years...

Don't be scared, because being afk is not a crime.

TWD's setup was unbeatable.

EVE online is the fishermans friend of MMO's. If it's too hard you are too weak.

Goon's are bad at eve.

I'm a relatively respectable citizen. Multiple felon perhaps, but certainly not dangerous.

Both players should know what to do and not be afk and should not get links running.

When you can show that the first player has the same amount of chance to win as the 2nd player then the myth i posted is not a myth.
If you can not i suggest you join your own little gatecamp in low sec and stop fail trolling at this forum.


Because 1 vs 1 is a significant, or even noticable, representation of how combat is done in EvE. Shall we check your small number of kills and see how many of them were solo and in the same ship class. Big smileBig smileBig smile



We are going a bit offtopic here.
Anyway its not needed to proof to me that when you take out the variable of player real skill the outcome of a 1vs1 fight is down to skillpoints.
More skillpoints in relevant skills is more ehp, more speed, more agility more dps.
Basicly everything more.

Still waiting of showing a video of a 1vs1 fight that shows im wrong.

Wait, "when we take out the variable of player real skill then it's down to skill points", did you REALLLY say that? Big smile

Basically you just said "well if we ignore your point and take it out of the picture, then by default I am right". Big smileBig smileBig smile

To recap, skill points has very, very little to do with the out come of a fight... especially when you consider how easy it is to get to level 4 (which everyone does) and how long it takes to get the slight benefit of gaining level 5.

And again, nobody cares about 1vs1... including you by your killboard stats. Even in that, experience and personal skills will trump skill points most of the time.

I'm curious as to why you are asking for video proof... do you think combat videos' make a point of showing relevant skill point totals? Really?

If you want proof, go talk to experienced pilots with at least several thousand engagements under their belt, especially small gang (or even solo). They'll be happy to educate you. Blink

I'd argue that the fun you find is in whatever other activity you're doing while mining

That all depends on what you are trying to do in EvE.

Some things are simple, some things are beyond the practical abilities of most people.

Why do you think there are so few competent FC's running around? Blink

Well, actually, the last one is true, I know because Glenn Beck said so.
