I may or may not be participating in a T1 frigate free for all soon.

Lol. Is my approach to this practical? Roll Unfortunately I don't have Caldari Frig V, would make it so much better.

Actually looks ok for what it is. Was going to say 'no point?', but then I saw you said it's a FFA. Good stuff!

It's slow. It won't be able to dictate range. And you've fit it appropriately for that.

Nice fit. I like it.

Edit: Consider EM missiles to complement your kinetic/thermal damage.

Thanks, I would definitely be bringing a variety of ammo. Long range ammos for both weapon systems and both EM and Explosive rockets.

Dat. tank. Shocked

Looks good for the purpose, but you'll want to be careful about keeping a low transversal. Your damage is low enough without halving it because a Rifter is orbiting you at point blank.

I can kill this in a standard rifter.

Instead of the rails, go neutrons
Instead of the shield extenders, go small cap booster and med shield booster. You'll tank any frig damage for as long as your charges last.

The goal is to be the last one standing. I won't have enough cargo room for the boosters to last if I get targeted early on.

I think the implication is that you won't have the hitpoints to last, either. And you'll be able to bring more EHP in your cargohold in the form of cap charges than you will get from your buffer tank.

I think that particular issue depends largely on the number of people participating.

Hm, you do bring up a good point there. I'm not sure how many there will be, 20+ at the least.

Well, ultimately you need to survive by dumb luck until the damage is tankable. Your goal is to minimize that "dumb luck" period and get to the point where you can tank the remaining participants as soon as possible, for exactly the duration necessary.

...all while having sufficient applied DPS to finish off the one or two people left when they turn on you.

I guess what I'm hoping will happen with the fit I posted is that during that dumb luck period, someone might start attacking me, realize that they are barely scratching my tank, and then decide their time and ammo is better spent somewhere else. I mean, no Frigate is going to do more than ~120 dps realistically, and that's in optimal conditions on paper. I should be able to easily tank a single frig for eternity.

I don't know about you, but if I saw such a target I would make it my goal to eliminate them as soon as possible -- if they're that heavily tanked, they're probably not very high DPS and are therefore not helping me kill the other people on the field. Worse, if they manage to make it to the end, they will probably beat me.

But then, it doesn't matter what I think, it matters what your opponents think.

You need a point for the pod.

There will be no podding involved, warping away is allowed and considered surrender.
