Eve Evelopedia - ISK the GUIDE for news.

A new guide was written by the ISK team. This guide tries to help the new players who familiarizes themselves with the universe of EVE. This time the guide attempts to introduce the complex world of PvP (Player versus Player).

Despite the already-known game mechanism, the PvP will not be a predicted activity since the enemies are other human players, so you must be prepared against not the game’s Artificial Intelligence but another human mind, attitude, psyche. Be ready: as there are many players, there are endless different strategies, numerous ships, setups, battle situations: all of them give the real variety, which makes our adrenalin “green light”. Sooner or later, the PvP will be the part of the game why you are playing EVE Online for. You may find thousands of other things to explore, to learn, to experience, to try, but none of them, nor their causalities, will give you real excitement like the PvP and its intensity, the real enemies: the challenges to defeat other players, and protect yourself against them.

Good luck! An advice: Don’t panic, and never give up!

A new guide was written by the ISK team. This guide tries to help the new players who familiarizes themselves with the FPS side of the EVE universe.

Work with teammates. This means both aiding them when you're nearby, keeping track of them and moving with them. It also means taking advantage of them in order to flank enemies.

I won't lie about the importance of knowing your weapon's abilities and limitations. I won't go on about how X gun is vs Y gun or how AR's are too perfect. I will just say to know your limits and work within them.

Knowing what is ahead of you however, whether you can see it or not, is but a small fraction of tactical and strategic knowledge on the battlefield. The trick is to know what is around you, or at least likely to be, nearly 100% of the time. Don't forget the Golden rule of Dust 514:

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.
