Yeah I plan on handing my toon off to my son, who will pass it off to his son, so really, why not recognize that my childrens children will be able to pilot a station and make wormholes with their mind?

Well this came on fairly suddenly, but...

I'm industrial now! I'm giving up eWar, and combat in general, and becoming a dirty stinking miner/engineer/scientist/whatever! Well, actually it'll be effective on the sixth, when i can fly a Retriever with Strip Miner IIs.

No, because according to Izawwlgood, you're not a miner until you can fly a Hulk. Retrievers aren't allowed.

To justify that statement a bit, you should note that a Retriever at all lvl 5 skills pulls 904 m3 ore per minute with t2 crystals (although with all lvl 5s, you'd be in a covetor, or at a hulk, but anyway), while a Battleship with 8 highs and 6 lows pulls in 1141 m3 ore per minute with t2 crystals. So a retriever will probably pull about 700-800 m3 per minute until you're in a covetor, and if you're already combat trained, you can mine really well in combat ships.

Put to get oogly eyes, a Hulk at all lvl 5s pulls in 1700 m3 ore / min. That's without any rigs and without drones.

I have all the skills I want with the exception of the t3 cruiser skills which I have all the prereqs for and a few misc skills I'll pick up in the next couple of months. I have 3ish years of maxing out skills. Don't need EVEMon for that.

True, but nor do you technically NEED EVEMon at all, ever. It just makes life so much easier.

That wasn't really advice for newbs: It was more for people starting alts than anything else. Yeah, if you're new, train what you can in learning, then train ships/modules.

New characters get 2 remaps, and I just said that was optimal for getting learnings to 5/4. I'd never tell an actual newbie to do that, they should mix fun skills in with their learnings. They should still try to get learnings in, though, since it hurts twice as hard to put them off with the new bonus.

I was thinking of playing eve after I graduate (when I am unemployed!), which will be at the beginning of July. I have messed about with the trial system before, so I have a rough idea of how it all works, but I was wondering whether it was feasible to start an account now in order to train some skills. If it were, anyone have any suggestions for skills for someone who wanted to do some small scale pvp? In that timeframe obviously.

Playing just to train skills is somewhat feasible, but mind you skill books cost money so you'll still have to actually play periodically. As for small scale PvP, what to train varies with your desired playstyle. The easiest way is to pick a frigate (executioner/Incursus/Tristan/Rifter for solo or Vigil/Maulus/Crucifier to support fleets) and train whatever turret it uses and related gunnery skills, as well as afterburners/MWDs, propulsion jamming, possibly Signature Analysis, some basic tanking skills, and the eWar skills that the support frigates use.

Most of that you'll get either starting out or through doing the tutorial missions, and the few you won't you could probably afford with the money you'd get from doing tutorial missions. So not very much. I was referring more to the concept of only training skills and never playing in general, rather than specific to you over the next few months.

If you want to get into eve more seriously then just occasionally pointing a laser at a mission frig or a floating rock, I suggest not doing it concomittantly with finals.

Punisher is more solo than executioner, imo. Just sayin.

Vexor or Rupture are better solo ships than the Punisher. Plus, they don't take very long to train for.

Sure, but we were specifically picking out frigates. A Jaguar or an Ishkur would be better than a Punisher too, and so would a Hurricane, or a Ishtar, or a Vagabond, but that's not the point. T1 solo combat frigates: merlin (good days) kessie (good days) incursus, rifter, punisher. Tristan and executioner are very good days.

Sure. I was talking about cheap, low-skill cruisers. They'd make a good next step after the solo punisher.

Heh, really cool to see that a bunch of xkcd fans enjoy eve. I'm getting pretty close to my carrier gonna have lots of fun with it. Oh, and I killed a nightmare yesterday, kinda proud of myself. Any new players want some tips they can hit me up in game, same name as on forum.

Yeah, you in a corp? Wanna join a better one?

Well, if we're doing recruiting in here, I may as well ask if anyone wants to come colonize some w-space with us...

Ok, I joined the channel. It automatically pops up whenever I log in now. I'm not playing too much at the moment; just logging in to set the skill training.

Been there done that. Wasn't for me.

Any frigate corps around? Or anyone that knows of a frigate corp? :)
