Missiles - Awesome for missions
EW ships - awesome for gang pvp
Railgun bonuses - awesome for large gang pvp.

Everyone flies them so Caldari equipment costs more. Embarassed

You can do everything badly.

Vagabond - you can move really fast and run away from a lot of fights.

Racial t2 resists aren't all that, some funnily effective ships and some fairly gimped ones too. An average race.

Train Caldari.

Train Caldari, but just for Vagabond on Mini side?

The Rifter, Thrasher, and Rupture are the best (or on the Rupture's case, tied for the best) in their ship class. The Typhoon and Tempest are both solid battleships as well, very excellent for PvP. The Minmatar have a bunch of good T2 stuff as well, and the Stabber is also a nice cruiser too.

Cons of Minmatar are that they are very skill-intensive to make work, and that railguns are gonna become a heck of a lot more popular when the Rokh comes around (currently it's the only tier three battleship with decent bonuses). The Raven is also no slouch in PvP, despite the alpha strike disadvantage of missiles. The Caldari also have several good ships.

So really... I fly Caldari and Minmatar, so I don't know what to tell you. Confused

If you have the patience for how skill-intensive Minmatar are, they're the best. Bar none.

It doesnt matter remotely whatever race you are, you can fly whatever ships you like providing you have the skills and ISK.

Since the first replier was extremely bias

Caldari pros:
Missiles always hit
Choose damage type
Great tankers

Cons:long range they suck atm,
Missiles do very low dps
Theyre boring to fly.
cant solo very well

Long range
Extremely fast
Can shield or armor tank
Very versatile
Can choose damage types
Longest close range gun range
Very good soloers

Some ships are quite gimped
Theyre ugly.

I think Minmatar look cool.
Looks cannot be counted as cons - they should be categorized as ¨personal preference¨.

I used a Amarr first for combat, I happily rerolled for a Min.
The difference was noticable early on.
Faster frigs, equal turret hardpoints but also some launcher options.
And the ship looks hot.
