It’s been several years (around 4) since I “played” EVE, but am looking to try and get into it again. I’m still very much a tyro. In fact, I know less now than I did 4 years ago. I’ve purchased three months and intend to putter around and see if I can smile, laugh, rage and cry enough in healthy proportions to continue to be the relatively stable and happy person that I am. I will probably mine a little, and do some explorations/scanning if I can remember how and then branch out or not from there.

I’ve logged on to find myself in a Skiff in the Gulfonodi System in the Fittakan Constellation of the Molden Heath. It’s a .5 system with 2 adjacent .6 systems. I’ve yet to undock. While I do love pvp, I’ve never actively chosen to engage in it while playing EVE because I just knew so little about the game and I prefer to learn everything else before I pvp.

First problem: There seems to be in an inordinate amount of WANTED folks in local chat, with the rest being at or below 5.0 security rating. Am I in some kind of pvp kill zone? I’m pretty sure it wasn’t this way when I logged off 4 years ago…I’m not one to court danger when I’m so ignorant…and in a Skiff.

Any help or guidance will be much appreciated.


P.S. I’ve only seen two folks docked at the same station that I am docked. Both were wanted and one has a 277 million bounty. The one with the bounty has been docked every time I log in.

That is one hot system these days…

Not looking to gank, but should be aware of what kind of situations or mistakes they look for:

Just looked through your posts, but haven’t had time to look at the vids you posted. I just got back on the forums here a bit ago after a vacation of a year+. Time flies and my memory fades fast! It’s shocking how much I don’t remember - welcome to the joys of an aging brain. I’ve had an EvE account forever but haven’t played that much. Last time I was on I was exploring low/null sec, but just learning the ropes then. Spent my last couple of outings in the past few days just learning to fly again. Took a pass through Goonswarm space a couple of times in last few days and lost cheap ships but somehow didn’t get podded. LOL. Thought I would come back, get back up to speed on exploring in null, and maybe try to get up to speed at pve and pvp combat, something I didn’t do much before. Does OTG have an organized presence, corp or otherwise?

I think there are a few OTG folks who play together. I’m not sure how much of a presence they have. I lost interest after realizing how much time it would take to generate the amount of isk I wanted to earn weekly via exploring - and combined with the slow training times. On a whim I booted up Elite Dangerous and am loving it. I have a HOTAS and 55" screen to play it on. Traded my way up to the Alliance sphere of influence, upgrading my sidewinder as I went and am about to begin taking combat missions. Much more immersive with the HOTAS vs mouse and keyboard - I just need a cockpit!
