I'd like to learn of course, so when I get into it more, I won't be ticking anybody off, at least in my interactions with fellow PvPers.

Just doing my best to learn of course.
I try to follow a simple maxim.

Don't be a jackwad to my opponents. This means I don't insult them, or belittle them without just cause. Now if the other guy starts it? I'll be more than happy to trade barbs. Or just save it to my Archive, so I can post it later and we can all get the last laugh.

If possible I try to help them improve if they want to learn from their mistakes, or even from my own.

I don't go out of my way to abuse game mechanics that are clearly not working as intended.

That being said, pretty much everything else is fair game for me.

If your gonna do 1v1 against another player, dont bring a full klingon energy drain build. Anyone can do that. Those who say spec against it know jack. Its the one thing no one can fight no matter how good you are.

Really, PvP ettiquette is pretty straightforward. I find it important to keep a sense of humor about it; no matter how good your ship is, you won't always win, and it's better to laugh or shrug it off than get upset. (And if you do get upset, no yelling in zone chat.)

The PvP queues are usually more structured, but all bets are off in Ker'rat.

When you'll be ready for Ker'rat I strongly recommend you...don't vaporize the enemies that aren't at your level and don't try to finish an opponent already hit hard and close to being destroyed...it's a bully behavior that won't help you when facing opponents stronger than you.
However, despite your honorable behavior, you will always have to fight at Ker'rat against the terrific KDF targ packs! Be prepared for the worst...

i can only think of 1 person who obnoxiously uses fireworks constantly, otherwise they are almost only used after someone gets a kill, so.... the lag you get from them wouldn't mater at that point

About the only time I 'bully' someone like that is when the Feds outnumber the KDF and are all grouped together. As I PvP using a hit-and-run BoP, it's often pointless to try doing a run at 'em, as I'll likely get snared and blown to hell before I can actually kill the target (unless I manage to kill in a single run). At that point, I just pick off PvEing stragglers because I'm bored, and need to pass the time to wait out the grouped-up feddies

Oh, and occasionally I'll say something like 'BOOM' or whatever, if I pull of a particularly effective surprise attack from the aft quarter. IMO, nothing feels better than swooping in suddenly and wiping someone out with a single attack run.

This is true. I remember my last space pvp arena had 2 heavy escort carriers and 3 atrox carriers in it. I was watching a slideshow of my ship blowing up. While in ESD where people blow off fireworks all the time, I don't notice any slowdown more than the usual.

Anyways, my personal rules are:

1. Be polite. If it was a good match, say so. If you stomped someone 30-0, it wasn't a good match and saying "gg" only makes you look like a prick.
2. No exploits.
3. No stupidly broken weapons/abilities. (I'm looking at you, hyper compressed cryo launcher)
4. Always help those who ask for it.
