This question has been asked many times in my past, and admittedly was affected much by the meta at the time, as well as who was asking the question and who was answering! However, I feel passing it by my readership would provide interesting insight into the dynamic of small gang PvP in EVE at the present. So, here's my query:
Given the option for any ship combinations, what would be your ideal gang composition when roaming through lowsec for fights? How would it change for a two man, five man and ten man gangs respectively? Please explain your selection: from a standpoint of cost, synergy, objectives, strategy and fun, why are your choices ideal?
And while I'm not trying to limit my readership per se, no capital ships in your selection. Anything beyond that is fair game.
(For those nullsec only folks, I'll be posting a followup inquiry for that as well, so sit tight with your master plans)
