Just a little piece of advice picked up from some recent jaunts into low sec and in search of War Targets.
Rename your ship.
Really, just click that change name option and call it something other than “Xxxx’s whatever”. Call it “Lazor” or “Pwnz” or “Currant Bun” – whatever… just call it something that doesn’t immediately tell me what it is. You would not believe the number of people on the directional scanner whose ship is still named as default. It allows us, the hunting gang, to plan strategy out way in advance, and gives us a massive tactical advantage.
