I may not be the best player in the world... but if after 14 days (the period of a trial) I am 0/9 in my efforts to solo PvP with a new character doing faction warfare plexes. I just don't have the tank, the speed or the damage to actually do more than scratch the paint of another pilot in faction warfare. None of these fights were even close. I think there was only one where I managed to get through shields of their armour tanked ship.
I know that somebody out there is going to say that I just am terrible, that my fits are crap... and they may be right. I however am going to say that my old main has hundreds of solo kills, and that I know what I am doing. Just things don't work when you have only 50 dps, an inferior tank nor ability to mitigate damage through speed and/or e-war.
EVE is just not a game that you can actually play on trial. To actually get to a point where you have a chance takes at least 30 days.... by which time I suspect that most players have quit and gone on to do something else.
This is one of the main reasons why the solo pvp community in EVE is so sparse these days. Without any new players coming on to solo PvP, as vets leave there are less and less of us.
Edit: Finally got a kill....
vragi nespyat's Kestrel was destroyed
