Unfortunately our PvP has some fairly significant barriers to entry. The biggest of these is that you’re risking your ship every time you go out. While we like this risk, and the context and meaning it gives to our PvP, it’s a bit daunting, especially for new players. In light of that we’re adding a couple of new systems to help ease new players into the PvP experience: duels and skirmish battles.
