    I have [Crab]s

    Posting here so I find them again really.

    CRB-20-STD250, 2xLPL, 3xML (CRB-27B does this as well, probably better)

    CRB-27"]-STD250, 2xLPL, 3xSL, Dual AMS

    CRB-27SL-STD 275, 5xMPL, 5xJJ, AMS

    I live somewhat more dangerously with an XL, but it lets me go even faster and have 2x LPL and 2x MPL on the 27SL variant, which is the one I'm finding most enjoyable.

    He, I get CT'd more often than I'd like. Most shots to the face hit CT, so you really need to work to use the STs. And with any sort of lag, if you're reacting to the shot then it's already hit you in the face.

    My -27 build could use the extra tonnage and 5xMPL is a little under powered. I'll have to check out an XL.

    Perhaps: CRB-27 (XL300, 2xLPL, 3xML, 2xAMS)


    So, after playing around with the builds a little. I've worked out: STD > XL and you pretty well never take hits on your rear armour (your sides extend so far that it's pretty well always a side hit). The exception is when you're shit and let a Jenner IIC get behind you. Solution, don't be shit.

    CRB-27 - STDo250, 2xLPL, 3xSL, Dual AMS

    CRB-20 - STD250, 2xLPL, 3xSPL. The armour is correct on this one (CT:52/12, ST:40/8)

    CRB-27B - I don't own the -27B, but I'd build it around a centreline -LPL. You can do a trip LPL build with an XL255. But I don't think that's actually that good.

    Picket up a Crab last night, absolutely loving this little fuck nugget. They must have tweaked the hitboxes because I lost a side torso in 1 match out of a dozen. Though if you would rather have a bit more surviveability a light 250 is a direct swap for the XL280 & its heatsink.
