As Gizzie Haslack ( my wormhole toon ) I have a killmail on me for a dual tanking Battleship, and not much else…
That’s because I tend to live behind a cloaking device, but…
Dual Tanking. The sin that is.
The initial ship was a Battlecruiser. T1 insured, & out ratting in low. It had a small shield repper and a medium armor repper.
The bulk of my tank was to be armor, but the shield repper was to make sure I always had maximum ehp as I sniped. And it was also about tricking the enemy.
That’s the one that died. Against 4 baddies it was never going to survive, but…
The Proto did survive.
The shields tanked, and when they went down the 2 attacking strats dropped their scrams.
And I used the armor tank to survive a bit longer than, I guess, they expected as I warped out.
I was taught that most EVE players all think the same way, and that that is how you beat them. I may not be a god, but that first ship did survive ( I can only assume that the 2 Strats were also flown by newbs ).
Spreadsheets in space? Or raw math & trickery in space?
Such is life
