    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    You know, I've been playing Eve off and on -- granted, mostly off -- since 2009 and I've only ever been shot at once. That includes a ton of mining time (I'm mining in a Retriever as I write this, my Hobgoblins currently ridding the universe of yet another spawn of rats ), traveling through lowsec multiple times (granted, I do mean traveling, as in a cheap and fast ship, route with no recent activity, and no smelling the roses since I'm just taking a shortcut), and all the rest.

     

    The only ships I've ever lost have been while mission running, not even that very frequently, and the only time I did get shot at I didn't even know what was happening until it was all long since over.

     

    Early on -- may have even been the day I started, I don't recall for sure -- I undocked in my shiny new Rifter, or whatever lowbie ship I was flying, I hear some noises and before I can determine what's going on my ship starts targeting another ship. I panic, try to get it to stop since I didn't know what was going on and was afraid targeting someone would get me in trouble, and before I can figure out how to do that the station (at least I thought at the time it was the station, may have been a nearby Concord ship or something, dunno) blows the other ship to kingdom come.

     

    Took me a while to figure out how to uncheck the auto-target-in-response thing and to guess that the other ship must have shot at me, thus the noises I heard, and, since there were probably rules against blowing newbies up as they exited newbie station, or whatever, they got a few hundred rounds of Concord insta-gib down the ol' unshielded reactor port.

     

    I guess I've just been lucky so far with the whole not having been ganked thing.

     

    Avoiding Jita like the plague (never been there), probably has helped some, too.
