    some help regarding weapons?

    hi all
    i jus installed the thing yesterday (after i tried it in beta)
    can someone draw some lines with eve, regarding playing styles?
    in beta i tried missile spammers (green ones):
    i went nano, so maximum speed and peppering missiles out of npc targeting range. sadly, i was playing to early and not enough to get into pvp

    now, how about other weapon systems?

    how about other play styles? can one pve/pvp tanking?

    game seems... interesting

    Missiles - Medium range, able to avoid LOS, next to no energy use to fire.. Bots are slow and pretty weak but as you dont need much energy are a perfect candidate for shields..
    Lazors - Long range but uses a lot of energy and bots are also slow but tough.
    Blasters (EM guns) - Short range but high damage, fastest bots but not very strong. Best for hit and run.

    Red is best for ratting as you can kite rats easily. Green is also good for ratting as you can hide behind things. Blue is not so good for ratting unless you have good skills but then once you get the hit and run thing sorted out it can be a lot better.

    PvP depends on what you are fighting.. Its surprisingly well balanced (not perfect) and each has a good role.

    thanks

    looking around, blue looks like gallente, especially the EWAR one
    tackle, get into range, melt, gtfo

    green feels like matari, kite and spam missiles

    red are... dunno, snipers?

    i made a blue char, still not sure i'll keep playing, but it seems interesting...

    Just an FYI, there is an AoE explosion when another robot blows up. So don't be dry humping the enemy thinking once he is dead it is all good. Many players have died from the explosion of another player after they killed them.

    Adding to this, the explosion size depends on what you are killing too.. So killing a small bot is a small explosion, killing a mech will almost kill any light bots standing next to it..

    Also their accumulator amount (not sure if total amount or amount left) when it explodes will also dictate damage. That is if I remember correctly. This makes for some nice suicide bots that fit ton of accumulator amounts and Leroy right into the center of the enemy as they blow him up.

    Lana can you confirm?

    I know very little about this feature but I have been warned about suicide bots..

    easy, boys
    i know about eoa damage after the explosion, but i'm not going anywhere near beta islands while i'm still a nublet and can't buy shit off the market
    fuck vanilla em guns fro 120k, while i can't sell ANYTHING (no npc buy orders)
    i'm in a proces of changing jobs, if it goes through, i'm gonna get me a month to properly test it. and get in a pvp corp.
    for now, i just log on now and than and drive around, running away from rats.

    Eventually it was just Lana and me in the channel and soon after that I got sucked into LoL. I still have a running account collecting experience and I log on to spend it here and there, but Lana is the only real active player as far as I know. Like I said before, I will go back when terraforming and stuff hits and also when I get too bitter for LoL.

    That's all I do these days. Play a game till I'm bitter enough then move on.

    I have roamed beta in a gang, and a blob (yay CIR blobs, best blobs).. As for PvP, not yet.. Mainly due to my really crap login times where 90 people seems to be about the average and most of them are AFK or semi-AFK miners..

    Also, with the blob.. No one wants to attack you when you have 1/4 of the server in your gang and on your island.. (It was an epi op, so we actually didn't want to be attacked)
