 Before joining Faction Warfare, you should at least be able to fly a frigate with the "holy trinity"​ of midslot PvP modules (a MWD/AB, a scram or warp disruptor, and a web). This will allow you to start looking for and getting into fights. A good knowledge of the overview and some practice with the directional scanner (D-Scan) is also helpful. ​ FW provides plenty of PvP opportunities for solo players, small gangs and fleets. Before joining Faction Warfare, you should at least be able to fly a frigate with the "holy trinity"​ of midslot PvP modules (a MWD/AB, a scram or warp disruptor, and a web).

 In the beginning, be prepared to die…a lot. I mean it. A LOT. The dedicated PvP Pilots in the FW zones are generally highly skilled into the ships they fly. The only way to match this is by skilling yourself up into the ships you want to fly. After that it boils down to piloting experience and a little luck.  You learn all this as you go and the only way to learn is to get into the action In the beginning, be prepared to die…a lot.

 It's a lot less frustrating to just jump into a new ship and keep flying if you lose a fight (rather than have to go back to a trade hub and first buy and then fit a new one). Start by bringing smaller ships (frigates and destroyers),​ and decide later if you want to start flying larger ships. ​ It's a lot less frustrating to just jump into a new ship and keep flying if you lose a fight (rather than have to go back to a trade hub and first buy and then fit a new one).

 You can find available plexes in system via your probe scanner. Plexes remain '​hidden'​ and only visible in the probe scanner until a pilot initiates warp to it.  Plexes that have been activated will become public knowledge to players in that system, and will show up on the overview depicted as a beacon. Other pilots can therefore warp to it without using their probe scanner to find the plex.

 Running plexes, FW missions and yes killing enemy ships nets you loyalty points (LP).  LP can then be used to purchase items from your factions Loyalty Points Store located in stations owned by your militia. ​ Besides being able to buy some useful items from the stores, you will also want to ‘convert’ most of that LP to ISK.
