Why use these if they take up cap? I thought at first that they were an armor equivalent of an ASB. I just started trying a few fits, and realized they use cap.

Why bother with them at all?

Looked up...saw this F***ING clown dropping like a rock.  Woke up in Vylade wondering what just happened!!!

at first: CCP allways said, that the AAR never should be the equicalent of an ASB. It should be - and it is - different.


Why to use one?
a good amount of bonus rep in some hot sitaution?

Its awesome to make fits like the triple rep myrm or active armor frigates.
Its not very useful in pve because its not very cheap to run and you cant run 2.

They're good for repairing far more than a normal armor repairer can. Until it runs out of charges. Then back to normal.

if incoming DPS is not high enough to pop you quickly, then:
small AAR + aux rigs give you same armor as 400mm plate
Medium AAR + aux rigs give same armor as 1600mm plate

it uses cap, but is a lot easier to fit, also does not slow you down.

How does XtraLarge ASB compare to Large AAR on armor bonused Myrm? XL ASB reps more, 'cause they fit, Large AAR don't rep, cause they don't fit. Smile
How does XL ASB compare to medium AAR on armor bonused Myrm? XL ASB reps more, cause they're capless, medium AAR don't rep, cause they cap out. Big smile

Yeah, different, as in one must be good while the other suck. If they're both good, they'd be the same. Can't have that.Lol

Not another oooo armour your so sucky thread!

They are different. Get over it!


The Small AAR's are awesome for frig pvp. And I can imagine that using the mediums as part of a dual/tripple rep setup would be just as awesome.

Also with the active armour rig changes and plate/skill changes armour ships can be quite fast as well.

That is the Way, the Tao.

Balance is everything.

Indeed, they suck, thus different. And you're supposed to use medium AARs, I mean, ASBs, on frigs.Cool

The big strength of AAR vs ASB is free mids and more cycles, AAR lasts a lot longer.

Bah!

People who insist armour tanking sucks are just closed minded and have no idea how to fly armour boats!

ASB's....now they suck big time. bloody useless to have a tank for 20 odd seconds then nothing! whoop dee doo they are cap independent....big deal. ASB's (unless boosted to hell and back) are crap for frig fights!

That is the Way, the Tao.

You can actually make AAR fits cap stable unlike ASBs without cap charges.
