Don't view it as cloth is easier to repair than plate. It's more you've taken enough damage to kill you. Allow me to illustrate.Plate is dented (hammer it out) doesnt take much effort, yet we were paying the highest repair cost. I mean really. You take the piece off, they get a hammer and bam. Done.Mail gets broken. You have to weave INDIVIDUAL metal rings back into the weave and bend them by hand.Leather you have to stitch back together, or patch with another suitably strong piece of leather.Cloth. Ah cloth. Cloth can be ripped, set aflame, torn, shredded, stretched, punctured. So yeah, in theory "ZOMG JUST STITCH IT BACK TOGETHER LOW REPAIR BILL AMG". But, I welcome you to grab an old t-shirt and rip it. Stitch it back together. NO WAY is it the same tensile strength as the original weave. Thus, it takes considerable effort to get cloth back to it's original strength. And really, clothies have sparkle and gems and shit sown into the weave whereas plate, for the most part, is plate bent in cool ways.So, TL:DR, clothies stop QQing that you have to pay the same repair bills as the rest of us tanks. We've been keeping the hate OFF you and paying the repair bill that comes with it.
