In this video you will learn how to tell how skilled your opponent is and even figure out how he has fit his ship. This knowledge allows you to decide when to fight and what tactics to use.
The video covers 4 basic methods for learning more about your opponent. All of which can be done quickly ingame. Infact I use them in just about every single fight.
When I first learned these techniques, my PVP ability improved instantly because I was able to make smarter decisions.
If I'm in a Taranis and want to engage a Rapier, I will look for a few things:
What is his character age? What guns does he have fitted? Does he have a sensor booster or eccm?
If he has a sensor booster or ECCM module active (you can tell by the effects) that tells me he has one less mid slot for his tank. Knowing that the typical Rapier fits 2 webs, a long point, mwd, and then tank, I then know that he will have almost no tank if he fit a sensor booster or eccm. Which tells me he is an easy target.
