    Ah yes, "space turds." The nickname given to Sansha supercarriers, supposedly waiting in w-space, created by the long dead Sansha Kuvera and his band of "True Slaves." We have dismissed that claim.

    New Players: Join EVE University.

    Excellent instruction and good pvp classes. Do it. Seriously.
    And join the "Facepunch Chat" Channel ingame.
    Okay, will do, sounds good.
    And I joined Facepunch chat on my day one, but there is usually 1-7 players there, so it's kinda quiet.

    My turrets don't track fast enough. A group of pirates got in close and I had to individually web them and blast em, racking up a 420,000 isk repair for 7 dead pirates.
    What besides motion prediction can help me with this?

    Something smells fishy about that, and Im not gonna believe it until its API verified, seeing as it has on it 2 large rigs and a medium, when itty 5's take mediums.
    The reason it has 2 large rigs on it is because the ship is probably so old that it was around when you had to put large rigs on every size ship.

    What are you flying? If you're unable to track them (presumably frigates) you should be big enough that the damage they do to you is limited anyhow.

    Tracking Enhancers work wonders, especially on speed-tanked frigates.

    The previous responses (drones and tracking enhancers) are a great way to deal with this. Another option: if you're flying Caldari or Minmatar, try loading a missile launcher. Missiles don't miss. However, ships can literally outrun the explosion and take no damage, so if the pirates you fight are too fast for the missiles there is no point. (Once again, there are skills that mitigate this effect). Also, check the turrets you're using: often, the smaller turrets with less range have a better tracking speed. You may find it in your interest to equip a few close range guns.

    What I have to ask is, what kind of ship are you flying? If you weren't able to track them you must have been in something big.

    A "Gallente Blasterboat" envelops a wide range of ships. Are we talking a Catalyst?

    If CCP started you out with 0 SP on a new character, and then gave you 60k free to spend how you want, while also keeping the "default" for newbie players who don't know what the fuck they're doing.

    Is that all you start with? 60k? Damn, you used to start with around 800k (though the customization was a little weak back then)

    You used to start with more skillpoints, but there was no training bonus back then.

    No tank is going to save a hauler that gets caught. He's an idiot for using lowsec though, we friggin have a direct route to our space from highsec.

    I don't have the game yet, but I'm trying to map out my choices ahead of time. I'm firmly set on doing missions for ISK in Caldari ships, and I've formulated a buffer tank torp PvP raven fit but I'm deciding on a mission fit still. Can anyone help me out?
    Assume fitting skills IV/V. I'd prefer an active tank. No cap boosters, please.

    Edited:

    Also, in a fleet, would a long-range cruise missile fit (~400 dps) or a shorter range torpedo fit (~1000 dps) be more useful in PvP?

    I also assume it's better to use a buffer tank in PvP than an active one in the Raven's case, right?
