So I have been thinking about what race to cross train to put more tools into the 0.0 PVP toolbox. I have been flying mostly Caldari, and have solid missile, shield, core skills. I am trying to decide between Amarr and Minmater. I have armor comp skills at 4s and 5s. I have Minmater Frig 5 as well as Autocannon Spec. 4. I have been plugging away at my Gunnery Support skills with most at 4s and 5s as well.

On the Amarr side. I can fly AFs, CSs and SBs, and have Cruiser 5,(for Sac) but zero lazor skills. I also have BC 5 and love my Drake, HAM and HM, for BC work. I have realized that I would like more options as far as BS go. I guess I like the Idea of the Geddon, but I feel that Minmater have better sub BC ship line up. I guess I like the Idea of the Phoon, being that I already have the Torp skills, but the other Min BSs don't seem to shine. And being that it's for 0.0 work, I like the Idea of having cheap T1 BS and Cruiser options.

So I would like to here from Minmatar and Amarr pilots being frank about the benifits and drawbacks of your own line of ships for 0.0 PVP. I am not really looking to replace my BC, but it would be nice to have fun Cruiser and BS options.

as minmatar have some shild tanked ships and give you a grate verity in pvp, id go with minmatar. however i think you can easaly cros train all 3 other races. if you can use one gun properly you can quickly use a second gun properly as well (small and mediums) same can be said for frigates and cruisers. As you are "skilled out" with caldari things, time isn't much of an issue for you. Reach for the stars, do it all. Then you will never be whining about how ccp nerfed a ship and you cant do anything anymore.

Thanks for the reply. I have been doing this in small steps, flying Minmatarr AFs and Amarr HACs for a while. I am starting to gain more experience with gunnery and have to admit that I like both Races for different things. And I would tend to agree that having skills in as many races makes "game changing day" a bit less woeful.
