Dual tanking

low-sec

(Brok Haslack) #1

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.

Deception.

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 :slight_smile:

Trickery is good I used to do silly things to ppl.

An example my station in curse was camped by 3 arty nados I had an insta made by corp but didn’t trust it worked 100% of the time.
Since I wanted to bleed my campers too I fit an apoc with artillery myself undocked nados shot me I didn’t die I shot 1 back killed it and warped off

Another would be way way back a small gang of covert ships were camping a pipe system belonging to some incompetent alliance I was in.
Knowing that I’d look like some random fool going for the gate I got a PvP harbinger and went in killed a pilgrim arazu and 2 bombers alone their last ship a ceptor simply had to let me go with all his buddies dead

Well you need to work on it by that fit I can tell you don’t understand much about ship fitting

Ship fitting:

You say that, but said bad-guys did drop their Scrams. Version 1 did live.

.

I have moved away from Layzors though. Waste of Cap when you can just bring some ammo.

You’ll find most players looking for PvP quite incompetent when you grow up.


(Brok Haslack) #5

That smells like a deception :stuck_out_tongue:


(Keno Skir) #6

They didn’t drop their scrams because you had a dual tank. They made an error that was nothing to do with your fitting choice from what I can tell.


(Nico Boru) #7

It was that fitting that helped in their error.


(Imustbecomfused) #8

what is tanking mean?


(Solstice Projekt) #9

The good ones fit for a target, the normies fit for everything. The former requires more time finding a target, and the latter is far more of a gamble.

Example: You want to hunt. You decide you will hunt amarrian ships exclusively, therefore strengthening your tank against EM and TH, maybe combined with a neut.

I think that’s what the SOCT ships are somewhat good for.
