then again im sick of the cane. its a sweet ship but too dang expensive. i have lost 3 now since I started flying them. best i think to go back to the simple days of destroyers and frigates where you can lose 10 a day and not really care.

Looking at your API, I'd say:

Energy Systems Operation V
Energy Grid Upgrades IV
Shield Compensation IV
Shield Management IV

Weapon Upgrades V >>>>>>>>>>> Advanced Weapon Upgrades IV

Hull Upgrades IV
Shield Rigging III

You don't have Missile Projection or Warhead Upgrades, WTF???

Get Missile Projection and Warhead Upgrades IV

Heavy/Heavy Assault V +Specialisation IV depending on which you will use on Tengu

Thermodynamics IV, Nanite Interfacing and Nanite Operation III so you can overheat.

WTF you don't have Acceleration Control???
Get Acceleration Control IV

Afterburner, Fuel Conservation, Evasive Manuevering, Warp Drive Operation to IV

 Had an amusing episode after downtime the other night.

We ran a small Faction Warfare plexing fleet around downtime and got a few kills. The fleet disbanded and one of the guys decided to start capping minor plexes (T1 destroyer and below) in Gallente militia's main base in lowsec for shits and giggles. He capped three minors with his Dram and started on a medium (T1 cruiser and below) . The Gallente then tried to blob him with a dozen cruisers, so he  gathered a ratag comedy fleet of cruiser and frigs to take them on. They docked up like fags and came back in Battleships and Battlecruisers(!) to take on our cruiser/frig fleet, but the retards apparently didn't realise that they couldn't fit themselves into the plexes due to the ship restrictions. 

We then basically said 'fuck it' and surprised them on the plex gate, which resulted in a swirling melee where our girly cruiser/frig fleet kicked the living shit out of them, killing 4 BS and 5 BCs. They then hot-dropped a fucking CARRIER on us as the last Battleships went down, so we had a capital ship tackled  on the field with no support. We eventually had to bail when they landed ANOTHER Battleship/BC blob, but we had handed them a humiliating beating with a vastly inferior fleet.

Observe the epic fail:

Basically, plexes are deadspace complexes used in Faction Warfare for contesting systems and (eventually) flipping them to the opposite faction.

Hawk isn't that great for PVP.

Dual-web Hookbill is WAY better against frigs and can also be fit to kite with MWD/Tracking Disrupter.

Guys I've been seriously contemplating giving this a try. And I think I'm going to. If someone wants a free 30 days send me one of those buddy invites; might as well do that and help out a fellow OGer instead of just doing the free trial. Hit me up with a pm if you need an email addy to send it to.

It's a good time to join. They just releases a patch that makes the game more accessible for noobs from what I hear. Great game once you get into it. Phone Post

The wolf is pretty sweet. Nice ship for solo PvP roams as I don't take my cane very far from home anymore for fear of gate camps.

Yeah. I think I will get a Jag too. I hear they are fast as all get out.

The Wolf is crazy though. Tons of guns for such a small ship plus 400mm armor plate and a armor repair system.

yep fucking minmitar! I'm pure caldari, so my pvp ships kinda blow. i tricked the fuck outta my hawk to make it ok, but i spent 3 times the amount most people would spend on a frig. The harpy is good stuff, but is slow so good luck getting in close.

I guess i'll have to stick to the tengu and the rook to do some pvp :(.

I'm gonna try soloing with a raven some day, see how that goes.

Use a Dual-Web Hookbill like everyone else.

You will be able to kill or drive off basically any frig hull with the exception of a Daredevil.

 In breaking news...to coincide with the new 'walking in stations' out-of-ship experience, CCP have announced that vanity clothing items will be available as from real money microtransactions.
 
A monocle will set you back US$70... 

 

EVE SELLING $70 MONOCLES



Eve Online’s Incarna update launched yesterday. In addition to the ability to walk around outside your ship, you can also buy micro-transacted items to spruce up your avatar. The problem? The cost of these items is far, far beyond most DLC prices, and it’s affecting the delicate Eve economy. Things can get a little complicated here as there’s three different virtual currencies involved, so here’s a breakdown:

Customisation items, including clothes and the ocular monocle pictured above, are purchased using a new currency called Aurum. Most clothes cost 3,200 to 4,400 Aurum. The monocle costs 12,000.
Aurum is gained by trading in a PLEX at the game store. A PLEX is essentially 30 days of subscription as an in game item. One PLEX gets you 3,500 Aurum. You can get PLEX by buying it from the Eve store. $35.00 will get you two PLEX…

…or you can trade for it in game with ISK, the main Eve currency.
 
If you’ve followed that, you’ll have realised that in real money terms the clothes cost around $17.50 each and the implant costs more than $70.00 (or four months subscription). An astonishing amount for an item with no in game functionality. For comparison, Bethesda’s often mocked Horse Armour DLC cost $2.50 on release, some 28 times less.

Of course you could trade for it in game, but the new demand caused by these items has driven the cost of PLEX up. It now costs 400 million ISK, up from around 370 million before the update.

Would you pay $70.00 for a monocle? No matter how classy?
