Reminds me of one time in EVE, I was taking a new-ish player on a mission and was wondering why his ships always folded so easily under fire. He was using the same ship-build as I was but my ship could take a lot more. Turned out he didn't activate his hardeners (essentially hardeners increase your armor rating a lot) as he thought they were passive
It took a while to figure out as it was this kind of thing that you just assume that people know (like you assume someone has plugged in the power cord when they phone you and wonder why their computer won't work, it's just basic so to speak).
Suffice to say, his ship worked a lot better after that.
