Racial Profiles in EVE Online – Traits, Strengths, and Weaknesses

As a new pilot to EVE Online, it can be hard to understand the differences between the races in EVE.

Getting a general understanding of the themes that these races tend to exhibit can help a new pilot understand his opponents and even what direction he may want to go in the game.

A pilot who loves using Drones for example should pick either Gallente or Amarr, while someone who is drawn to Missiles would want to use Caldari.

In a PVP engagement, this can also help you to predict more about how your opponent will fight.

Knowing an Enemies likely Damage Output can tell you if you will tank him easily or if he does the Damage that you have weak resists to.

Knowing an Enemies most likely weakest Resist or Damage Hole can allow you to kill them much quicker.

Keep in mind these are all Gross Generalities and are no right 100% of the time, but as long as they are right 60% or more of the time, it is valuable information.
