halos are only good for frigates/ being more than 1 ship size lower than your opponent.
Crystal's are only good if shield tanking
Asks / slaves are only good if armor tanking
Snakes, always help, allow you to kite better, close better when scammed, escape better, get early tackle better.
But. RvB is not the place to play with HG, they often can make a ship OP if flown right, and then people will just refuse to fight you, or bring superior numbers / ships, knowing you are permanently mounted in HG.
If you want fun, fair fights in RvB, mids make your ship better, but not the point an empty clone pilot doesn't stand a chance if they are good.
In Low / WT, use whatever you can afford to lose!
