A great Eve Online tutorial tip came by my GamerGrrls Twitter Feed today from CCP. What do you do if you’re being hit by missiles?
Being Hit by Missiles in Eve Online
If you’re being hit by missiles, ESPECIALLY if you’re in a smaller ship like a frigate, speed up. If you’re stationary, orbit. If you have an AB (afterburner) turn it on.
If you have a MWD (microwarpdrive) be mindful that it will bloom your signature radius. This means that having the MWD on actually makes you BIGGER but faster.
In the rare instances that I’m playing tackle (i.e. scouting and hunting for targets to kill) I love pouncing on missile boats that are out ratting in null. In my Interceptor (a T2 frigate that’s FAST), they have a pretty hard time applying damage. It’s pretty hard to be hit by missiles when you’re buzzing around whatever you have locked up!
So thank you CCP for putting out this cool little video! See more tweets by Eve Online right here!
