Solo PvP: Call of the Wild - The Omen Navy Issue

Some of that was really, really impressive. Eight kills in one fight, on the first time out in that ship? :o

Awesome editing, great fights.

No Falcon alt, no scout alt, no logistic alt and no booster alt.Now that is solo PvP. The rest of you scrubs using alts and buddies and labeling your videos as 'Solo PvP' need to understand what it means.Great video. I still strongly believe solo PvP has been dead for many years though, despite the video.

I really like how you showcase a loss in your vid, no one does that. Great fights

What about it? That you're wrong, or the bit where you're blind, dumb and wrong?

Sounds like someone lost a cynabal...

awesome video. the price of ONIs went way up because of this.

I've had such an ONI for a while now and I still haven't gotten around to flying it. Makes me feel terrible :(( I suck at PvP so I'd probably welp it anyway but you know what I mean)

"I still strongly believe solo PvP has been dead for many years though, despite the video."Despite a fact right in front of me I refuse to change my beliefs which are based on no evidence.Smooth.

I have mates that are doing something simular with the evi, but good video

I learned a lot about letting go of point in this video. I find myself committing too much to keeping point and end up slingshotting into the optimal of my enemies. Great video.

The question is how does one define whether arguing will get us anywhere?Different people define it by different standardsExcuse me i am late for my class at Yale.

well I don't have alts (not wanting to pay an additional sub) I can use simultaneously, and no one was around in the lowsec pocket I lived in (timezone issue, etc). And so I alone often have to fend off crazy kids and miners from time to time in my talos/whatever suits my needs. I solo pvp. Because I rarely have friends awake.

As I said in the thread in the official forums, even before Odyssey, I've considered Nomen a "mini T3". Now, it's just godly in good player's hands.

Sorry, I didn't mean to come across that pedantic. Honestly didn't mean any ill will by this.But just in case you'd actually be interested, here's a link to a good video on that topic.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Yea, just sitting around and listening to someone else tell you what buttons to push.

That's what I call Elite PVP'ing, Kovorix. Taking on gangs like that, is sexy. And taking down that Absolution, I didn't expect. Nice job.

Can I use a thrasher in syndicate
Avatar
Actually a fair number of video-makers do that. Bopo, Prom, and Garmon all come to mind.

Interesting to see this; I've recently been testing dual rep active armour omens and they've been pretty good as its something people very rarely expect. Curious as to why he didn't go dual rep.
Avatar
I went to Yale. You don't need to be rich. Great school.. shame it is in New Haven...Solo PvP is in no shape or form dead, it is just that most do not have the will or skill to learn and excel.
Avatar
Nomens are sexy, sexy ships. It's like a Vagabond with a 40km optimal.
Avatar
The vagabond is going to outperform this in almost every aspect (ammo changes the only one I can think of) so it'll be interesting to see that in use.
Avatar
Phew...Phantasm could be better for this kind of fight:))))))))..well...could be...but it is the worst ship in EVE!:)))) We will w8 few more years and we will see balanced Phantasm..i hope!

iirc Garmon has a similar video using a Zealot, maybe check that out.
Avatar
maybe it's cuz when u solo pvp u lose a nyxlooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool
Avatar
Nice to see my fav. ship can do way more then I expected.... pro pvp.
Avatar
The latest Garmonation (9) iirc, as well as some of the Eve Is Easy vids(now public on YT), possibly also footage from Willl Adama/other Genos dudes flying it. They had fits for with & without links, e.g. 1 or 2 MARs, due to cap usage differences.

Fuck it, after dying to gate camps with two falcons and a rapier along with 10 other ships, being chased 10 jumps by bored roaming gangs, and dying to a "solo" pilot with links im going to go fuck with carebears in hisec. Solo pvp is dead.

Solo PvP is far from dead. I do it all the time. Just not on purpose.

Track listing please =D

Heh except that time his drones are purple indicating hes in a fleet, and that fleet member is not on grid

I really like it when I see pvpers of this calibre and look at their killboard on battleclinic, all I hear most days are high efficiency this and high efficiency that, yet players like kovorix are much better than thousands of people above him in ranking

you are wrong

Kovorix of Matari Exodus [.EXO.] really showcases the raw power of the Omen Navy Issue in the hands of a true pro in this video. Armed only with a T2 fit and a modest clone, Kovorix absolutely lays waste to all comers.

Why the Omen Navy Issue? When the Omen was boosted in Retribution, it suddenly became relevant in cruiser PvP as an armor kiting rig. Odyssey brought the love to the Navy Cruiser realm, bestowing more speed and a range boost. Though it may have lost some damage output and EHP compared with the T1 counterpart, the raw tracking of pulse lasers paired with the range boost really makes this a versatile boat.

Kovorix has this to say about the Omen Navy Issue:

I've always looked for a solo ship that can active tank, is fast, and can project damage well, because that allows you to take engagements against many gang types and fight for much longer than a normal buffer fit is able to stay on the field. The new Nomen plus the AAR fits the bill very well, and is also great against tackle. The tank is tiny but the small signature and speed make up for it, and feeling like you're always on a razor's edge of death makes it a blast to fly. There really isn't another ship like it right now in game (unless you have access to a T3 link ship, maybe). If you're interested in flying it, I suggest you get used to using hotkeys for all your mods (like in the video) and practice manual piloting around, as both of those things are pretty important in getting it to work.

You can find Kovorix and Matari Exodus roaming all over low-sec and null, looking for small gang and solo opportunities. Keep an eye out in your alliance HQ or high-traffic PvP space!
