What’s the fastest ship in EVE? While I’m not sure about that, I am sure that the Crow is up there.
This ship has rekindled my spirit to fly small ships again. It gave the the thrill to be able to dodge missiles and bullets. The ability to make someone really steamed when you bump them out from the asteroid they are trying to mine and prevent them from jumping into the next system.
In the fleets and gangs of low-sec space you will almost always find one or two interceptors. And among all those ships you will likely to see the Crow. It’s definitely a ship with great potential. I say potential because just a few days after I could fly the ship I met a pilot who knew nothing about fitting it. What good is a ship if it’s not used by someone incapable of flying it?
I should mention that this ship isn’t really used for missions or PvE. In fact most interceptors shouldn’t be use in missions. Complexes, yes; missions, no. Interceptors are for those 1 vs 1, 1 vs 2 , and occasionally the 1 vs 3 battles. If there is anymore enemies fighting you at a time you will indubitably die.
Why? It is because your speed and transversal velocity is your savior, they are the game mechanics that allows you to be able to negate a lot of the damage from missiles and bullets. And since transversal velocity is high when you are at a higher speed in your orbit around the target, the opposite will occur to other opponents, which then means that they can hit you. And then kill you.
Also as a side note, most interceptors will have a hard time going against a well tanked cruiser class ship so don’t try to engage in a battle against a battlecruiser or battleship. Try to aim for targets in smaller ships.
Several drawbacks with the Crow are it’s low hit points, orbit must be dead on, and ease of countability. The ship isn’t meant to take the full damage of 10 cruise missiles or torpedoes. So while it heads to the target, that is when it is most vulnerable. And in order to prevent that damage from getting through your shields you also must get into the right orbit distance so you can scramble the others engines, fly as fast as possible, and try to negate most of the damage the other ship is throwing at you.
I am loving my Crow and so far it had been awesome to pilot it. Time to join the ranks of the solo pilots.

Some pilots call it the Harb, some call it the Binger and some call it the Gank-Bringer.
This is to all the pilots following the hard path of Amarrian doctrine. If you are an empire based pilot you are likely to proceed straight to battleships, and probably leave the battlecruiser skill only trained to level 3. This is absolutely right as you want to maximize your ability to do missions.
However when you finally decide that you are suffocating in the high-sec environment and step down to 0.0 or into the low-sec space, your attention should focus on the Harbinger again. It’s a cheap yet sturdy build. You can jump into your non-implanted clone and do those wonderful roams. Roam roam roam, this is the perfect ship for it.
Don’t fly the Harbinger solo. This is a great gang machine. Is it a HAC or recon ship? No… It’s a heavy assault battlecruiser! Maybe it’s not a command Ship, but its still good. The Harbinger, with proper training and fit, can own HACs. Fit for gank over tank, rig it, do a passive but no plate setup, you can out damage HACs. Additionally, as a battlecruiser you are less likely to get jammed, well at least less then a HAC at least.
The way I use Harbinger is to fit it for a real gank. I fit it to get 700 DPS and with a 42k effective tank. It is capacitor stable with boosters. I also fit a sensor booster II with a scan resolution script which effectively acts as a damage mod because it shaves off about 2 seconds from a lock time on that HAC ship which you will face. Now they’ll get 1400 DPS as breakfast.
Flaws? It’s just the usual Amarr problems. Capacitor issues, throw on a booster. Fitting a MWD is more then obvious, so now you’re left with no mid-slots except to choose between the web or the scramble. Overall I think its better to passive tank, minor capacitor usage, and kill the opponent. Then repair afterward.
Anyway, it works, kill boards speak for themselves. It’s my personal favorite.
Talk to the people that can prove they know what they are doing. The Harbinger is one of the few tech 1 ships seriously utilized in 0.0 small scale warfare. And if you are Amarr and maybe thinking about leaving empire remember; you don’t have to be that suicide frig tackler for the first 7 months to be of any use. Get better with Harbinger and no one will diss you in local or fleet!

Ah, weeks of training do pay off in the end.
As I wake up to another morning in New Eden, I felt ready for what was to come today. This morning I quickly finished all my necessary tasks, filling out contracts and orders so I can have more time to spend with my new beauty.
Once lunch was taken in, I strolled down to my new station hanger. It took a week for me and the crew to move everything into it. I pause at the control panel and select ship storage 8. The floor in front opens and cycles through my other ships; the Rokh, Caracal, Raven, an empty slot where I used to put my Drake, 2 shuttles, and a Cormorant destroyer; until finally the gleaming black frigate rose into view.
Only four or five members of the crew was around at the time since this ship was meant to be piloted by a single person. They looked with interest and when the door hissed open, I stepped in to get to know the cockpit better. Sitting back with the manuals in my hands, I thought to myself that anyone who doesn’t read up the instructions on these things must be real idiots.
This time since the ship was so small, I personally fitted the ship up myself in about an hour and when all of that wad done, then ignited the propulsion systems. Wow this thing has power. Crisp voices flowed through to the tower controls as I asked for undock permission.
Once out in space, everything seemed much bigger to me than before. I sent out into Corp com a message about the Crow and took her on a test flight. The nearest Gurista filled asteroid belt is in Umokka; just 2 jumps away. Plugging that coordinate into autopilot I noticed the ship had an overpowered warp drive that slung you into warp at 3x the speed of most other ships.
It took no time to find a small gang of Gurista frigates and I initiated the test you the ship’s systems and capabilities. Optimal orbit range is 25km; 19.5km for warp scramble. As Bloodclaw missiles fired off in succession, it did not take long for those frigates to become scrap metal. I noticed my shields remain at 99% and checked the log. Amazing! The gang of 3 had only hit me for a total of 13.7 damage.
As I got a bit restless from a day of playing with my new toy, a fellow Corp mate hits me up for some friendly PvP in a nearby system. I’m always one for those and next thing I know, we were at a isolated planet with a few ships. They were in wonder when my T2 frigate glided into their visuals.
In that gang of ships, there was a Ferox, Kestrel, and a Caracal. As soon as we took out of each others’ cans, we engaged in some 1 versus 1 battles. It was obvious I could take the Caracal and Ferox’s shields down, but I did not want to use a lot of missiles, so I stopped after a full load was unleashed. They, however, did not scratch my shields more than 3%.
Through that little combat training exercise in the new ship, I think I may have convinced some people to train up for an interceptor now!
It was getting late, so I payed a station owner in that system a small fee and docked up for a night, and slept in my Crow.
Make sure to submit to the screenshot contest! It ends soon!

Just popping in to say hey to all the usual subscribers.
And to tell all of you about a new update to the website.
Oh ya, its going to be good. It’s code name is EWW 2.0 (I know it’s not well) and it’s been in development for 2 weeks. You know how I haven’t posted many new things in the near while? Well it’s because I have been working a lot on what is called EVE’s Weekend Warrior 2-point-o.
So you may wonder what this is all about; well more or less, I am trying to expand the website to aim for a more community based website.
Some of the features that will be included in this chunk of update are:
- Feeds from EVE
- Updated polls (I know I haven’t been to well with these)
- Updated headers from the contest
- Multi-author based community blogs
The biggest new feature will be the community blog. This is what I was talking about above. If you would like to journal your adventures and experiences somewhere, why not do it here? The website has a sizable audience already and it’s a great way to communicate with other players!
The catch is there is going to be a small fee for the author’s pages and there will be some limitations, but I am still thinking a lot about that right now so don’t worry too much!
All this and more will be announce as time passes on…

The Rokh is missing it’s love…
But atleast my skills are certainly training, slowly, very slowly…
As you probably realized, this summer for me has been full of travels, which means I am away from my home computer often. That poses the problem of not being able to update the website very often, put up new posts, and play a heck of a lot EVE.
Now the problem of posting new articles has been solved. I recently purchased an iPhone and with it’s on the go internet service and WordPress application, I will be able to tell you whats up.
The only thing I can do effectively is post articles, which is what I will try to do more often. And for the past few days, I have been checking out some other EVE websites. Some of which are blogs and their links can be found in our links and support page!
Don’t forget to take those screenshots, I have received a few very nice entries so far!
Until next time,

So training to level 5 in Caldari frigate took 10 days with some implants in. Now I must train for electronic upgrades to level 5. Yesh, how long will it take to get a stealth bomber?
Anyways, sorry for the afk-ness. I was on vacation for the past week. A little journey into the Canadian Rockies.
Before I left, I set 17 orders of large quantities that could be considered to be fairly expensive in the marketplace. Now that I have returned, the wallet got a boost from 30 million to 110 million. How the heck did that happen? I estimated I wouldn’t have had a profit of 40 million. But 80 million, 2x, that’s cool!
Now with that money I will be able to afford a stealth bomber, maybe go do some level 3 missions. I haven’t done those since I lost my Drake a few weeks back. Oh that Drake will be missed.
After getting a Manitcore, my plans are to start the training for an interceptor. It’ll be another long training session, ugh.
