Eve forums are absolutely full of new guys posting along the lines of “oh god I saw this video of some seriously epic dudes fighting outnumbered and winning, how do I do that?”. The short answer is that there is no quick way to become good at anything, and Eve especially is tricky to learn. You need to know about game mechanics, your own capabilities and more importantly the characteristics of around two hundred possible ships that you could be up against and this takes time and practice.
I have always said that the best way to learn this is to find some guys who can teach you, basically a good corp. I have trained up newbs in the past but it is time intensive and tiring although ultimately very rewarding and to put it bluntly there are nowhere near enough pilots both good enough and willing to put the hours in to train all the guys who want to learn.
There must therefore be some sort of self selection to put the keen newbs in touch with the potential trainers and those who are keen enough will find a mentor, at least one of the guys I trained are now better than I am which makes me absolutely delighted since I did a good job. For the next generation of enthusiastic new killers any resource which helps them get in touch with quality pvpers and steers them away from becoming nullsec blobmeisters can only be a good thing.
Quick shout out for a new channel “Microgang help“. This is run by some excellent small gang pvpers and will focus on taking out starry eyed newbs and helping to turn them into cold blooded murdering bastards. I have flown with some of them and I can guarantee you will learn a great deal.
So if you have seen one of the cool pvp vids going about and wondered if you could do that, follow this link and who knows, you could be out terrorising some corner of new eden shortly afterwards. I will be there at some point myself.
