I was just starting to run through this playlist and quickly realized it's outdated. The starting tutorial is significantly different.

I'm new, but is there anything I can do to help improve/update this? I don't feel qualified to re-record video, but mabe there's another way I can help?

I'll definitely have to look at updating this article. Probably start it as a new thread.

Nice to see that it still gets a wee bit of traffic!

New players should have a peace time with them not being attacked by anyone except for npc for 1 week, makes them really comfrotable in the game and start then they will start to understand how the system works (take baby steps these guys are not big brains).

There is a "rookie grieving period" of 30 days, I believe, but in my opinion it is way too little. I don't have enough time to play everyday so that timer ran out looong before I felt comfortable to cross thru the lowsec areas.
As the great Mandalorian said: Don't play with your food!

It's not universal. It pertains to specific systems as outlined in this Help Center post. If you're not within the bounds of those systems and you're under 30 days old you're fair game for any actions within the game.

As long as you have remained in the systems and parameters as outlined in the link above, you have 30 days of "peace".

The point is for you to quickly understand that EVE Online is not a peaceful game. It's about player conflict and player-driven conflict. The more you stick to "baby steps" the less successful you will be in immersing in and enjoying EVE Online for what it really is.

These are very useful tips, thank you. Especially interesting is the warning that even in PvE plays, there is the ever-present danger of other players who can and will give you a hard time - even if you're just doing a "bit of mining"!

I know my focus may change in future but the PvE element does interest me - but this post and the replies have made me keep in mind the need to still remain vigilant and careful.
