So yesterday we suddenly had a corp mate yelling for help because he was scrambled by rats and couldn’t tank them, I immediately invited him into fleet, and anyone else that wanted to help, and warped to him. We managed to save him when he had 17% structure left.
Of course after this we had to figure out why he wasn’t able to tank 3 belt battleships, so we went through his fitting and I was making suggestions left and right, and then he asked: “Are these hardeners active”.
Turned out he was using the correct hardeners but didn’t know you had to activate them, once we figured that out he warped back to the belt and sure enough he could permatank them.
So always check if certain modules are active, and in the meantime enjoy this post
