PVP Experiences - Stories?

Recommended Posts

Perhaps I am just within the barren parts of Saktsak, but I have yet to find another player, or have the heart to shoot them down. Has anyone had any experiences with player dog fights or anything? I know a lot of people enjoy the PVE but I feel like PVP is an unexplored topic almost amongst the TeamSpeak.

 

If you'd like i'd love to hear any stories.

I am with you there, being an EVE player its hard not to compare it a little, however keeping in mind that the game is barely even in its infancy and the player base isnt up really that high yet since the game isnt fully finished yet and all things to be implemented haven't veen yet. but when it is there will be systems just like in eve that seem to congregate in, like Jita or amarr in eve being main trade hubs etc. but that game is over 10 years old, and when it first started it was not far off from how elite dangerous is now.

 

i know the forums (elite's and reddit) are good places to look and post to see where alot of people seem to congregate.  plus there is a goal, get your elite status in each of the three options: trade, combat and exploration,  try being the first to the center og the galaxy or the other side of it, look for black holes, try finding the voyager space craft (found already try finding the other)  etc etc.

Its a nice sunny day off of Abraham Lincoln on a Thursday morning in Beta build. Eagle hatches rigged and set, I'm raring to do some missions and trading, maybe in a few days I'll have a viper.

I leave the dock and head towards daedelus, god knows why I bothered with streaming pretty views of Earth last night, the place isnt worth its weight in biowaste for the fuel. Out the station, a sidewinder jacks its speed off and flips towards me in the port. I narrowly dodge, phew. Out the door, glad I wore my brown pants today.... and Hyperdrive locked and set.

Into daedelus and not much more than 'give me free stuff' and hunting quests. Maybe I'll have my hand at some pirates and traders then. Off to the next system I shift towards the nav beacon, and grab myself a drink and snack before I.... Wait what was that ...my headphones still on am I being interdicted? Bloody hell, I leap out of the kitchen and back to my desk.

An eagle. Figures. I don't have much in the way of guns right now, just two 6600 gimbled pulse but should be no problem.

I turn to scan... CMDR? This guy must have balls of steel or a missile rack. Wanted? Someone is either suicidal or thought I was a computer because of the numbers in my name. 'I consign your remains to the void' my usual 'make him think I'm an NPC so he doesn't jump', and we're off. He's weaving pretty well, this thing has expensive thrusters, shields and probably some armor the way he's taking hits. Let's fly backwards and see what happens. Bingo, shields down. 75% first pass.

We fly into position, head on head for a final jousting run. 50. 25. 10. He's behind me now I'd better make him feel this one, my shields are low but theres no way he's getting them down. I twist left and circle to his belly. My guns are just out of range, I need to throttle back to blue. I turn in and he boosts just out of gun range as I fire. 3%. Too easy. I boost and swing around over top of him. Plink. Blue text on my top corner comms.

'FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU' it reads, I howl with laughter as I boost and turn to finish this guy. Suddenly what's below me boosts and turns up. I smash into the canopy of his ship square on. My HUD is gone. Bloody asshole! We both explode and its all over.

Jokes on him though... 30k bounty on his head and my buyback was only 10. I cashed in at respawn smiling, lesson learned not to fly too close to anyone who has nothing to lose. Edited by BookD20

My first day in the game i had someone who tried to pirate me. I was new and still trying to figure stuff out and didn't know what interdiction was. I already knew if it was a clean npc i couldn't attack so when i turned around and saw it was a player i fought back. He had my hull down to 40% when i retaliated with the starter ship. Soon i had him running away with 7% left in his hull and i was still at 40%.

I have had 3 pvp contacts so far.  First one was on day 2, had no idea what was going on and it was over in a few seconds.  Second one we fought for about 10 minutes until both were down around 40% and out of ammo when we spit apart and jumped.  Third fight was in the capital ship area.  A player came in a viper and choose the other side.  Myself and another player jumped him, he was a very good pilot and he bailed out with about 40%.

Well i was doing an all in trade route in my hauler at the time and i was interdicted. at this point i was flipping out cause i thought i was doomed and would have to go bankrupt. I Had no weapons or shields and it and been a cobra mk3 who had interdicted me. well it all turns out the guy meant no harm at all. Its was hist first time interdicting someone and said he was just testing it. He jsut cargo scanned me and left.  Last time i went all in on a run lemme tell ya

It seems like players are more than happy to take advantage of a defenseless cargo holder. I have heard may people in the Teamspeak being pirated. If the ADK Elite Dangerous group was to grow, I would be happy to see a armed guard division to help our fellow trades ships!

I would suggest at least upgrading your armor because having that extra hull protection could mean life or death when escaping the clutches of a local diaper head.

I took my SOE (seriously Overpowered Eagle) to find against a human anaconda and I won. AFTER around 15 - 20 MINS. He couldnt get me, despite throwing mines. NEVER doing that shit again. 300 Cr reward. He propably was just scanned while carrying illegal oxygen :)

interdicted a hauler in my cobra to try and recruit him, he shot at me with his one pulse laser, so i took out his shields, hit him with 2 cannons, left him @ 1% with no cockpit or thrusters, left a nice "have a great day" and only got a big fat "F YOU" back :#

A player group for multi-purpose stuff like escorts is being formed slowly. Waiting to become a full member, but there will definitely be a loosely formed group of people that run escort missions for our traders out there when Wings hits. Look for this to happen somewhat soon. Happy trading!
