Vagabond Pilots: Read This

Eve Opportunist has an awesome Vagabond guide to go along with his quite decent Rifter guide.

The reason it’s good is that it shows the reasoning behind the choices made, shows alternatives and what variables they affect, and more importantly, gives you a play by play account of how to fly one.

It’s said that the best way to learn is by doing; well, there are a few problems with that:

  1. It’s not much fun suiciding HACs until they ‘learn 2 fly’ it without making stupid moves
  2. Your alliance may not like the losses on their precious killboard
  3. Your wallet may not like those losses
  4. You may not even learn anything

This last one is a biggie – there are many things that prevent you from learning from experience:

  • You may learn the wrong lesson (i.e. ‘I can’t kill battleships’ instead of ‘Stay out of heavy neut range’
  • You may not be paying attention
  • You may not even know enough to learn from the experience (‘how did that guy suddenly go so fast with his MWD and what the hell is this nanite paste stuff?’)

So when you see a well-written guide, pay attention 🙂
