Good morning Evesters.
Well I’ve had a good night nearly losing my Brutix to 3 rat big ships (don’t ask me what they were because I had to run away before they got me). This caused me much disappointment as I’d been doing pretty well. I also saw a pretty nice hauler I could have had and missed it. I lost my drones (will buy more) but it’s ok. All part of the process. I will point out I’ve now gone a whole 11 days without losing a ship and I’ve done a lot of PVE so I’m pretty happy about that.
I thought I’d review where I’ve got to in 2 months of serious playing, I know my character says 2015 but I joined then and did not really start playing till 2 months ago. Not having the skills to use equipment or do things is by far the most frustrating part of EVE online, however, I wouldn’t have it any other way, in fact, this needing to train different skills actually adds to the realism of the game. The fact that I can’t just jump in and become a vet pilot on day one (although technically you could by buying a pre-trained character, but you will still lose because it depends on YOUR skill not just the skill of your character to succeed) is a great part of eve.
I’ve managed to collect over 100 items of “stuff” that I’m now trying to decide what to do with. I keep thinking “oh I might need that”. But I’m getting to the point where I’m trying to avoid using Tech I stuff and hitting on Tech II and above, where my skills allow.
Now one of the commenters on Facebook yesterday suggested that I post my fit and get some advice on it. This is a Navy Issue Brutix so feel free to comment with your thoughts. Remember I can sometimes not use stuff because it’s not trained up. It’s one of the frustrating things about getting great fits for ships then finding you have to wait 3 weeks to actually use it. To add, I have in the past bought skill injectors to help me a long, but the problem is that it doesn’t help your ACTUAL skills using the stuff.
I’ve also found people can get quite upset if you, as a noob, make a nooby mistake. However I’m quick to correct and learn so I do appreciate the input. Don’t be to hard on me guys. I hope you enjoy the photos I pick up in my travels! 🙂

Here’s my current skill sheet courtesy of www.eveboard.com. This is important because the stuff I CAN fit is often limited by my training so I have a huge 127 day training queue right now.
