EVE life: PVP

So, you have started your eve life and choose pvp is the way to go and you are sitting there thinging what am I going to do about this well first thing you need to know is that the sec status of a system effects how and if you can pvp.

High sec:

high sec is pretty much non pvp unless you are against war targets however there is a way around the concord interference this includes getting the player you want to fight to steal from a can you have placed this will make him read to you meaning you can agrees also if you steal from their can and if they agrees you, you can then agrees back this can be done in a variety of ways but is often talked about as "can flipping".

Low sec:

Low sec pvp is very complicated here is a vid that should be able to help as it is simply to much for me to right down with out being to much.

Hopefully this will help you it is pretty much everything you need to know to be a pirate in lowsec but if anti piracy is a thing you can use this vid and abit of common sence and you will be able to work it out for yourself.

Null sec (0.0)

This is where I spend most my life pvping and here there is no aggression or anything to stop you and you can shoot any player without influence from gate guns or concord however null sec is much more complicated especially in player owned space they will have intel channels which are (suppose most are fail) to watch your every move so you will be hunted so if you are going here make sure you are in ships that can fight it out or gtfo if needed also ships that can get away from gate camps.

So you know the areas here is some important facts you need to know:

Session timer:

So, you have jumped into a gate camp with a fast ship and are preparing to "burn" (go as fast as you can) to the gate and jump back through however when you jump in you must remember that for 30 seconds you cant jump again but don't worry your cloak does last longer than this. You can get a little circle in the top right of your screen to tell you when you have a session time this can be done in the setting page.

Aggression timers: so you have engaged a enemy on a gate or friendly/dock-able station and suddenly hostile start piling in its a trap you try to dock/jump but you cant this is due to your aggression time when you agrees anyrthing player owned you can not jump through gates or dock for 30 second this includes not only player ships but cans and player owned structures also. So you need to keep this in mind when attacking object/ships on or near stations and gates as it could be the end of you.

So there you go a few basics for pvp in EVE sorry there is not many pretty pics ect had no idea what to put in
