Amarr is just the best big fleet 0.0 alliance race to fly.
The apoc has a sick damage/range output and is thus the best sniper ingame.
The Amarr caps have the most solid tank in the game.
They don't need to reload .
The ships that stand out for amarr imo are :
Apocalypse , prety skill intensive tough with t2 lasers , but once skilled up its just the best BS in large 0.0 sniper fleets.
Damnation , it has the best tanking abilities of fleet command ships and the best Effective HP of any sub cap . (it can break the 800 k effective in EFT with 3x officer EANM , 3 x 1600 mm rolled TD plates, slave set , 2x t2 trimarks , all V leadership bonusses with a passive warfare link.)
Arbitrator , this doesn't stand out for its powers. But more for the incredible versitility of 4 high , 4 med and 4 lowslots combined with allmoast infinite CPU to fit what you want :D . I think this is the ship in EVE that has the most effective fitting possibilities ever. :)
t2 pulse lasers with scorch can be prety nice, they have far more range as other t2 close range gun ammo.
Ships that are good , nothing incredibly special.
Armegeddon, its like a megathron with more range capabilities with close range weapons.(not the sniper fittings ...)
Abbadon , it hits hard and it tanks hard . A good mission runner and a beast of a station/gate camper !!.
Harbinger , it hits hard , really hard :).
Zealot , so you think your out of my range ?? Ah-HA!!!.
curse , I eat YOUR cap for lunch any day of the week :)
Bad stuff from amarr :
Cap = life and most pvp ships rely on cap boosters wich just isn't ideal.
Their frigate line up only has 2 medslots most of the time , wich fails at tackeling .....
They have an AF with 1 medslot .... only 1 !!!!
Ok @ the person that says you can stack up em and thermal resists easily ....
stop doing level IV missions and start doing some pvp....
unlike level IV missions , pvp happens in gangs most of the time . And if you have 2x em and 2x thermal hardeners the amarr ships might not do much , but you will get ass ****d by torp raves and gankathrons in close range.... And rail guns/arty's in sniper fights ....
and even if the argument was true ,,, same counts for gallente then ?
Amarr isn't the 'best' they have some of the best ships in eve , but they also have their weak points . Like every other race ....
caldari has passive shield tank , ECM and torps.
Mimmatar has speed , passive shield tank and webs !! :D
Gallente has raw Damage , lots of drones, the dominix...
amarr has TANK , good range/damage , cap warfare <3
conclusion , the OP is wrong ! Amarr does stand out with some ships but are not better as other races ... the grass always seems greener on the other side but in the end ou'll be happy with the grass your standing on right now
omg this is a long post ...
