Neutralizing drones, do they slow down/lower chance of armor tank rats?

But neutralizers fitted on my ship still will right?

Yeah, they still activate and consume your own cap. There's an effect on yourself, just not the rat.Smile

I can't really trust your first answer yet, as everything I've read says that while neutralizers can't drain their cap, it does slow or lower the chance for them to do a shield repair per cycle, unless that's something that was changed at some point after these posts I've read.

This appears to be dated as I read other posts saying NOS cannot disrupt armor or shield repairs: http://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Capacitor_Warfare_Guide#Capacitor_Warfare_and_PvE

As usual the ignorant give out bad answers.

Neuts decrease rat rep chance, op is asking if neut drones do the same. I don't see why not but knowing ccp they probably don't.

Nos no longer effects rep chance, you do however get a continuous free cap from the rat
