Did you offer to help him (after the debris field disipated) with his builds?
Many try PvP without researching or reading the forums first.
I find I have a soft spot for such players (regardless of faction) when I see them in PvP.
Its like watching one's Son or Daughter take up thier fathers Bat'leth and attempt to best the family Targ in single Combat. An inexperienced child wandering the field of warriors intent on Glory!
It puts a smile upon my lips before I shoot them.
(then I offer to help them in a private forum, if they wish. Many say NO (and worse things). Is it the hair?)
I offer help to many of the squishy cruiser pilots. You know the ones that dissipate after 3/4 of an alpha sequence. Many are receptive many say IDC I am just getting my emblems.
Actually, I saw someone say something the other day in zone chat on ESD that made me realize he was doing exactly that.
That figures. I'd like to see the BOs given out through levelling or purchase having more standard setups. Perhaps even bundling a new set of BOs (with a proper build template) with each new ship you get as you level.
