As many already know, I've been hard at work creating a new SFI (Stabber Fleet Issue) Guide for a long time. When people asked how long until it was completed, I kept saying "next month" only to find out another cool fitting or tactic I wanted to add, so the Guide just grew bigger and bigger. Now finally it's complete and contains over 8 hours of instructional PVP Video. It's HUGE.
While just a few of these videos is enough to get you out out of a station and rolling in solo killmails, the rest will make you a PVP King! These Videos cover several powerful fittings for the SFI, Tech 1 Stabber, and Cynabal, plus you'll learn how to handle almost every situation you're likely to face.
The New SFI PRO Guide will be released on Friday April 5th at 20:00 EVE Time (That’s 4 pm USA Eastern Time).
Like all of my PRO PVP Guides, the SFI PRO Guide will teach you the Fittings to use, the Tactics (in my awesome MS Paint Tactics Lectures), and use my "Stop Motion" video to demonstrate and teach you with real solo PVP fights. You'll learn not just how to win fights, but how to find them, and how to turn one fight into many.
It has become a Tradition for me to release a "Preview" video for every new guide I release and this one is no different. BUT I have been getting ALOT of requests to make a new PVP Video (the old fashioned kind with music), so I figured why not do both at the same time?
So this Preview is footage from the SFI Guide that has been re-edited and synched up with some awesome music. Plus there's also a cool theme to it that I think you'll like based on my past use of old Movie's as titles.
But keep in mind, the actual Guide is not like this, the Guide is real time video with narration, drawing on the screen to illustrate tactics, and focused on Teaching. This video is just for fun!

I also plan on doing a special bonus for everyone who orders in the first 24 hours, but I'm not sure what it should be. Why don't you tell me what you want?
Special Live PVP Stream? A crazy fleet PVP Roam with me? A lottery where 5 people win 1-on-1 PVP Lessons? Or win a customized PVP Lesson for your Corp / Alliance?
Do you have any ideas for something super cool? Leave a comment with your idea!
Some feedback. I like the narration more than the music. Getting inside your head is where the value is for me. Don’t compromise your vision for people who want free entertainment.
I understand and I agree. I will take a few of the fights from this one to make a narrated one in the near future.
can you please make sure, that the music used in the videos, is licensed by the user, who makes the video. I can’t see the video here in Germany, as it is blocked due to conflicts with the copyright laws for music used in it.
I saw that… It seems like all almost all the videos I make with music get blocked in Germany. Anything I can do to prevent that?
I have to run now, but later tonight I will upload it to EVE-Files and post the link here for the people in Germany.
nit sure what can be done. It has something to do with the so called GEMA, who is representing music artists here in Germany and receive money, if you play music in an non-private environments.
It is fairly complex and I have no idea how to prevent this. The only option I currently know is, that you use music, which is available for free.
Thanks in adavance for your uploads to EVE-Files 🙂
It has now been uploaded to EVE-Files. That should solve the problem.
Abbadon21, great to hear from you again, hard at work as always. Certainly those of us that have seen your live twitch feeds agree we miss them. Great entertainment and a forum of chat to ask questions and learn from you.
To celebrate this new SFI tutorial (excellent teaser vid) I think it would be great to go all out on the bonuses. Give 5 pilots 1 on 1 pvp training (these could be frapsed and used as promos to get others to buy your training time), the crazy PVP roam with you would also be great and either frapsed and used later to promote small corp training classes, and the live fleet feed would be great.
I also agree with more narration, music in the background is ok.
I am already in line to be first to get your SFI guide!
BTW did you ever get your resolution issues with twitch resolved?
And thanks for your guides! Best out there!
I’ve moved up to a better computer since my previous Twitch broadcasts, so hopefully it will work better. I will try to do some more of those.
I’m going to try to do a narrated version of this in the next day or two.
Thanks for the comments.
Having owned the ISK pro guide in the first 10 minutes of it going on sale, and taking part in the first audio chat class, I have to say, after the frigate guides, this one I am really looking forward to! All I read was Friday 20:00 and jumped to buy it straight away, alas, we have to wait till the 5th April 🙁
Happy to hear it, I’ve put a lot of work into this one.
Are you announcing the price for the SBI guide? Will it be like the frig and be $40?
I haven’t decided on price yet. The sheer size and time it took to make this guide is making it difficult to price. But it will be less than $40.
What if you’ll also provide a bundle (ie Frigate + SFI guides)? According to the announced video duration of the SFI guide it will (probably) include good part of the Frig Guide videos ;p
No Videos overlap both guides, although there are a few videos about tactics that I add to every PVP Guide.
I’ve been meaning to do more bundle offers, because a lot of people are asking for them.
I will try to get a few Bundles posted in the next week
So where’s the promised cheat sheet? 😮
The cheat sheet is part of the new SFI PRO Guide which will be released on Friday April 5th at 20:00 EVE Time (4pm EST USA)
Also I was wondering if you could make a video on how you decide what ammo you pick… I always only have Barrage loaded beaucse I dunno how to decide what ammo is best :/
The Nano SFI has Barrage loaded 90% of the time because it stays at range.
I may try to do that when I get time…
However the best bet is to first learn which ships typically fit armor tanks and which fit shield tanks, then based on that show info on the ship and find the lowest resist then match the ammo type to it.
As a general rule:
Republic Fleet Fusion for Armor Tanks
Republic Fleet EMP for Shield Tanks
Republic Fleet Phased Plasma when you don’t know which it is
