[QUOTE=scout1;34496059]Do you have T2 damage mods? Those are easy to train for and pretty vital. Support skills such as guided missile precision or warhead upgrades will allow you to hit smaller targets or do more damage. Additionally, training for things like shield management will increase your tank and let you strip some tank modules and replace them with mods that will help you deal damage (BCUs in the lows, target painter in the mid).[/QUOTE] I had Weapon Upgrades 4 training at the moment for the ballistic .. something 2's that's done in about 8 hours. I'm just not sure what to train past that really
[QUOTE=kenji;34499192]I had Weapon Upgrades 4 training at the moment for the ballistic .. something 2's that's done in about 8 hours. I'm just not sure what to train past that really[/QUOTE] Missile Projection, Target Navigation Prediction, Warhead Upgrades, Rapid Launch, Heavy Missile Spec. Train each to lvl 5.

Is anybody here kind enough to explain what uses there are for Interdictors and Black Ops ships?

[QUOTE=Biotic;34500799]Is anybody here kind enough to explain what uses there are for Interdictors and Black Ops ships?[/QUOTE] Interdiction is for fast tackle as well as warp-ins(get behind the enemy fleet and warp to a distance) that's close enough to the enemy fleet. They do well at this because they go about 4000(6000 m/s overheated). Black ops is a get in and kill then exit as fast as possible. Most black ops use Jump portals to jump Cov ops bombers and T3s(/w cov ops Subsystem) to a targeted cyno. Most black ops use a Covert Cyno in witch the cyno it self doesn't appear in the overview like normal ones, Thus making them like a mini titans. The only good black ops ships are the Redeemer and the Widow (panther maybe). PL uses black ops fleets a lot and in large numbers. They cant do damage without numbers so taking on a 10 man fleet would be disastrous. so in summery They go in, Kill a key target, Leave. I didn't get my plex in time...

Plant like 6 passworded GSCs at your belt, mine in a retriever or better, then when all cans are full, retrieve with an industrial. Rinse and repeat. Also don't mine anything but Kernite if you're in HS.
[QUOTE=Whitefox08;34501721]big post[/QUOTE] Wow, thanks. I heard Black Ops ships are bad, is there any truth to this? Also, what are Cynos?
[QUOTE=Whitefox08;34501721]they go about 4000(6000 m/s overheated). [/QUOTE] Haha, if only :(

Its a good way to play eve AFK though if thats what you do

It's just my 60 day mining alt, training only mining skills and the Osprey has a pretty good mining amount with the right skills, atleast it seems. also heard it's the best trial mining ship. But damn, mining in EvE is the boringest shit I've ever done in a game. [QUOTE=LF9000;34502955]Don't mine at all. You can find much higher isk/time ratios in other activities.

[QUOTE=Biotic;34502257]I was hoping for a better response, not what the ingame info page tells me already, but ok.[/QUOTE] I'm not kidding. Dictors attract more stray fire than anything else. Also Cynos are something ships with jumpdrives or portal generators lock onto.
The rat bounties in null make me feel pain when looking at mining income numbers. Also yeah a cyno is a brightass beacon that ships with jump drives (captals, supercapitals, jump freighters, black ops?) can jump to if they've got enough fuel and are in fleet. Said beacon is visible and warpable from anywhere in the system (except covert cynos), and the ship maintaining it is a complete sitting duck.
[QUOTE=Biotic;34502282]Wow, thanks. I heard Black Ops ships are bad, is there any truth to this? Also, what are Cynos?[/QUOTE] In a general fight yes there bad. But ganking, "oh my". Cyno's are a created via a Cyno Generator that allow black ops Jump Drive or Portal as well as Capital jump drives to lock on to it from X amount of jumps. The cyno requires He-3 and has a cycle time of 30 seconds(i think) once active the ship can not move. [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] WIZARD YOUR A NIJARD.

I hope they redo the tempest's model someday- and put the amarr/minnie v3 skins up on sisi soon. A man can dream.
Someone in my corp told me you can only jump through multiple regions in nullsec, is this true? [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] With a Jump Freighter of course.
Is there an influx of new posters/players or is it just me?
[QUOTE=Biotic;34508433]Someone in my corp told me you can only jump through multiple regions in nullsec, is this true? [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] With a Jump Freighter of course.[/QUOTE] Not true, a subcapital ship would still have to get there to light the cyno :')
[QUOTE=Kommodore;34508889]Is there an influx of new posters/players or is it just me?[/QUOTE] I've noticed it too.
Meh.. I've been thinking of returning to EVE Online after over a year of inactivity. I got fed up when I lost my 40m ISK ship last winter and haven't played since. I've played EVE Online on and off since 2008, but believe it or not: last winter was the first time I entered lowsec, did missions and actually used weapons. Before I that, I had only hauled, mined and traded. Then my expensive ship got gatecamped and I lost all interest. That's why I'm never going to do any of those things again.. But trading and hauling in highsec does seem interesting. I just don't know if it's worth it, those things seem interesting but quickly get boring.
According to a corpmate hauling is shit for money. [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] People really underpay in contracts, too.

Yeah definitely PvP in nullsec, loose so many ships you stop giving a fuck about loosing them. :v:
[QUOTE=BurnBlackJay;34514307]You should PvP =)[/QUOTE] That seems dangerous and I'm pretty much guaranteed to lose my ship.. Hell, I've got a Drake and I paniced when one belt rat frigate attacked me in highsec. I'm just not that interested in the violent aspect of EVE, I'm too paranoid about losing my ship.. :/ That's why I've got ships like Drake and Noctis that I never use.. Noctis is useless because there's no salvage in highsec and I'm too paranoid to use Drake; even in highsec or in noob missions.

[QUOTE=BurnBlackJay;34514699]You might be playing the wrong game[/QUOTE] Not really. Despite the occasional HHJYUPFEHHJGGCHGRRRRR FUCK YOU-moments, EVE is a really interesting game and I really enjoy playing it :)
Are you unable to engage in lowsec next to stargates? If so how do gate campers work?
[QUOTE=Biotic;34514922]Are you unable to engage in lowsec next to stargates? If so how do gate campers work?[/QUOTE] If you attack someone without the right to, you will lose sec status, be flagged Global Criminal (Anyone can rape ur anus), and the stations and gates will shoot you for 15 minutes.
