I've played the trial on and off maybe 10 times over the years.
A bit over a year ago I played for about maybe 2 months. I always like the annoying debuffer / cc types in PVP, so, naturally I went toward the quick-route and as I was told high-demand ECM blackbird, so I'd have some use in some pvp opportunities. I ended up thinking it was pretty damn fun jamming people in pvp (I could smell they were annoyed), but I was still pretty green, didn't understand the game too well, got frustrated, and got rid of the account.
I can't remember a whole lot since it was a while ago, but those memories give me some sticking points that come to mind for this second time around at making a fun ecm pvp'er. Those points being:
1.) When I last played, I lost quite a few blackbirds in the span of a week or so I was pvp'ing in a group of 2 or 3 guys who just invited me to their corp (I know, you're primaried with these and they're not expected to last many fights, I can look up tactics, etc, but of course tips are nice).
2.) I was broke because of 1. lol.... If I recall, I only had a caracal doing level 2 missions or something of that nature, and even fitting cheapy blackbirds tempted me to go to the isk farmers with my wallet.
3.) Since I'd rather not feel compelled to run to the isk farmers with my wallet to keep pvp'ing, what else are my options? I remember someone telling me "forget pvp'ing for a few months and level up a mission runner". Is that really my other option? I have to spend a few months going toward a mission-runner type setup and THEN more time skilling toward an ECM setup? So, uh, yeah, I'll pvp later this year? or is it going to be a similarly lame answer like "pay for two accounts, one mission runner and one pvp'er"?
Just trying to map out a plan for starting from scratch again. But I'm a bit hestitant because my memory leads me to believe that it is those 3 options: A.) buy isk to fund your pvp so you can focus right-away on this ecm pvp build, or B.) pay for two accounts and have a mission runner leveling up at the same time, or C.) wait quite a damn while to pvp while you level up a drake mission runner build first.
Any suggestions are appreciated. Maybe I'm a bit off in my perception of how to go about this.
