Becomming a pirate

So iv been playing EVE for a few years now, and iv always been the nice guy helping out people. I do not can flip nore warp into peoples missions, and iv been grinding missions with a nice 5.0 sec.

Yesterday i desided to start another account and have a blast. Iv always seen the boards in space with most wanted and thought... why not try the dark side of the game.

Anyway Joe Hawks was born and i though i better get going with the tutorials.

After i finished the first two military tutorials i had to wait for a skill to finish to carry on next tutorial.

Well... how could i kill time waiting with not even 50.000 skill point. Gunnery 1, Minmatar frigate 2, propulsion Jamming 1, Afterburner 1, Armor repair 1.

I fitted the Slasher i got in the tutorial with 2x 150mm ac, 1 warp scram, 1 armor repper and an afterburner and headed out.

Warpping trough the belt i saw a retriver, the guy was just over one month old, so i thought, well i really dont have anything to lose.
he had a can out which i flipped... Nothing... hmmm i warpped of and came back 5 min later.

Oh my god, im dead, there the guy are in a stabber.. And yes i died fast. Man iv forgotten how it is to have few skill point.
Well back to station and refit another slasher i got in the tutorial.

After 5 min it came to my mind.. i would if the guy is back mining.. I warpped to the belt and BINGO, a nice red flashy retriver. With my 50k skill points i engaged and got him down in half hull.
Turn my gun off.. then i thought well if im gona become a pirate i better do it right, so i quickly private convoed the guy claiming 1 mill to let his ship go and started a count down from 10.

Didnt take long before the 1 mill was on my account. Wow not even 5 hours old and i already earned my first mill in piracy.

Today i desided to carry on my tutorials, and again i had to wait for a skill to finish to carry on. Would i really be able to do this 2 days in a row. Well today i could fit my Rifter given to me in a Tutorial so i quickly fitted 3x 150 ac, Web, Scram, Afterburner, Damage Control, Small armor Rep and an overdrive.

In the belts again, oh a 2 year old retriver in a corp.. wounder if that would be posible. Well i set the corp standings to -5 and had a glans in local... well his alone, lets go for it.. so i flipped 2 of his cans, and it didnt take long for the retriver to lock up the 1 day old noob and engage. He was using hammerheads.. Bummer ill problally die fast. Well they didnt really do any damage.

Got the guy down in hull and did the same as yesterday, claimed 1 mill. It didnt take long to see my account grow!!



Man i didnt exspect piracy could be this fun, and profitable for a noob not even 1 day old.

StovAkor on :

Nice guys finish last. Dual log with your main and get your new guy in the same corp. Use your main as standby recon support for those times when your victims loot your can and you can't take them with your noob. :-) Or hell just go to low sec or 0.0 with your main in a ceptor. Mmm....mmm.....mmmmm. I can't think of a better way to get hooked on piracy than usin ceptors with old characters. I mean what the hell dude you got sec to burn. May as well use it to your advantage. :-D

Joe Hawks on :

My main already burn low sec \O/ but do try and stay abov -1.8 so i can handle high sec wars. My main how ever have the joy of cynabals and loki's. That said its easier to pick a fight with Joe and goooooooood i love to smack which i dont on my main.

StovAkor on :

Ah ok. I thought ya still had that 5.0 sec rating you were talkin about. Gotta love smack. Smack can get people to do the damnest things. :-)

Mehidro on :

Hey can you contact me ingame? I got a few questions and I'd like to ask a bit more in-depth questions.

Like a bit more detailed.

Did you follow the militia tutorials and got a rifter from there, then fit it with items you got from the military stuff too? Also, what exactly did you train?

Joe Hawks on :

Ill catch you in game.

I only used stuff i got from the tutorials and rats in the belts, and i did all the tutorials but started with the the military ones.

Have a look on www.rifterdrifter.com and look at the guide at top, that could give you inspiration.
