If you can use Large Projectiles why wouldn't you just fly a nano Tempest? Lol

Interesting.
No drones, no launchers (except for Naga. Which has 8 turret and 8 launcher slots)

With a tornado, you'd need to get a 30% boost to PG, to be able to fit 8 1400's. with nothing else.

- fast
- small signature
- cheap
- more damage
- more range
- requires less SP
- more scan resolution

Why do you want to use a Tempest?

Because I don't get chewed to death by frigates I can't hit, and have no defences against?

With a couple of launchers and some drones on a Pest, you can take out Frigs. the Nado won't.

This might be a problem, but as soon as you get 1 or 2 support ships there will be no tomorrow for your target. Tornado + Talos and you have enough web for everything, especialy since the Talos can fit 2 Webbifier without sacrificing Tackle or Propulsion.

Just for Comparison, I tried to rebuild the tornado:

If you look at the link some posts before you will notice the 2600 base Shield HP for the Tornado, this will result in 40k eff HP and more, while deploying 900 DPS with 50km Falloff, more Speed and agility than a hurricane while having a smaller Signature.

This does look kinda broken, dont you think?

Well this is true but you should have other fleet with you no one ship should kill them all. I.E. look at the hammer comeing down on Caps just now.

I can see this ships doing well with right fleet make up. They mite do better in small gang warfar though and then again they mite just do well every were.

Is it a rock point a lazer at it and profit. Is it a ship point a lazer at it and profit. I dont see any problems here.

How about this?


Holymoly, have you scanned it for the other changes?

Hybrid boost is rather awesome:

All are getting a 30% reduction in cap use and a small drop in CPU (5%).
Lots are getting a reduction in PG needs. Med and large rails seem to be getting 12% reduction along with all the blasters.
Rails are getting a 10% damage boost across the board.
Blasters seem to be getting a 20% tracking boost for all but the capital versions.

Other notable changes:

Gallente seem to be getting a general 10m/s speed boost alongside a 5% agility nerf across the board.

Destroyers are losing the ROF penalty, gaining HP and gaining a smaller sig.

There's a Dram nerf in there as well alongside the Oneiros boost CCP Tallest has said he's adding.

Looks like there's also T2 mods being added of a number of flavours, as well as changes to the info/warfare links.

Just going to chime in here, these stats are a 1st pass taken from a chaos build, it hasn't been balanced in any sense and it's going to change before they go out to TQ.

There will be a dev-blog with final stats before they hit TQ.

Aren't you supposed to make a blog before they hit SiSi? Sounds suspicious.

I was rather hoping we'd see e-war battleships to match the Scorpion (and another combat battleship for Caldari), but this concept looks pretty cool too.

It would be nice to see it on SiSi before TQ to make some tests and make it more balanced.

It's only suspicious if you're suffering from the paranoia side effect of smoking too much dope.

Let me guess - you think current tier2 BC aren't already overpowered?

You apparently didn't see the shield/armor stats. The base tank of these new bc's is about halfway between a cruiser and the tier 1 bc. They fill an entirely different role than the current BC's and must be flown in an entirely different way, so not sure why it matters if the current BC's are overpowered or not.

I was just joking around, that CCP "accidently" released those stats, so they can get a feedback from the comunity bevor they hit Sisi.
This would enable them to see what the "actual" players would thing about those ships and what they make out of it...

As much as I like the current stats of those ships (they are fast, small and have a lot of DPS), for the sake of EVE I hope you balance them right, so they are not to much "imba". (you can make an exeption for the Gallente one, they need a lot of love)

:-)

Best regards.
