I'm relatively new to PvP and at first I got frustrated by particular aspects of the game. I've discovered that in order to be motivated to continue to PvP you need to accept the following...

1 - You will come across premades that will hand your ar$e to you on a silver, jewel encrusted platter, served by a manservant of the highest order. Unless you're prepared to devote a large chunk of your life to combatting them you'll need to learn to live with that.

2 - Fairness in classes doesn't exist and will most likely never exist. Subnuc is annoying, but having your shields and hull drilled in a second or two gives the ultimate advantage to the escorts.

3 - If you want to get better you need to ask people questions. If you choose to do so remember this little gem of advice. Just as you like people to be polite to you, be polite to the people you're asking. Saying something like, "You're cheating and I want to know how or I'll report you", will elicit hostility. If this happens, you have nobody but yourself to blame. If you're polite, chances are you'll get some assistance and maybe make a new friend.

Keep these in mind and you'll have a fun time.
