Re: EVE Online

low sp battlecruisers are not a good idea - you will end up getting soloed by a frigate I'm new to EVE, so I apologize if this is a stupid question, but how is that even possible?

Re: EVE Online

I don't think that it could if you add a jammer and drones to that list. However, people do fit battlecruisers poorly. Especially people with low sp. It's entirely possible to solo even battleship rats in a t1 frigate.

Re: The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim : Dual Wield Bacon

Also, I think they prefer staffs over any other weapon, no matter the qualities of the weapon.

I would say that I felt Riften to be quite different from the others (the villainy really shines the first time you enter), and Markarth, largely due to the architecture, is refreshing.
