Yeah but what does it matter if the tornado has to fight outside of point range? Its enemy can simply leave. While Gallente's version has the ability to 'do it all', high damage, high tackle, all in the same package.

Really... really.... reeeeally.

Is sort of good tackle a crap tank and close range weapons on an Armor Boat woith 5 Lows what passes for all around hear now days.

But hey it does blow the Torando out of the water...

Unless that Tornado is fit with a Warp Disruptor, then the Talos is #@%$ed with a capital #.

Web bonus is overpowered imo. Give the other tier3 bcs similar bonus or remove the web bonus.

If hybrids suck so bad then why not give the caldari bc a similar bonus?

Because Webs are useless on a Rail Boat.

When everything is said and done, this is CCP's game. If they want to add a web bonus to the Talos, they can.
Personally I would like to see a painter bonus on the Naga, a tracking disrupt or NOS/Nuet on the Oracle, and a web range bonus on the Tornado.
Of course like my late grandmother used to say "Be happy with what you get, worrying about the 'could have' will just drive you crazy."

Here sanity, nice sanity.....THWOOK Got the bastard

It already has 4 Bonuses, isn't that enough for you. I am very disappointed in your bonus selfishness.

Sure why not, would you rather have less range or worse tracking for the Neuts you have no utility slots for.

Because really just **** everyone who is not flying Minmatar. Just as hard as you can bend them over and remind them that if you want to play this game in a Blob of less then 20 people ya gotta choose Minmatar.

Web Strength Bonus is Crap compared to Web Range. But in the hands of the Nado which can Kite faster then a Nano Rupture, well.... Just bend over for a Sec.

Now, even if you disagree with this point, i sill think its unfair the Talos is the only of the four that receives ewar bonuses



Has Gallente pilots can tell you it's unfair you can hit with your large Auto Canons from 100km or with your large Scorch Pulse at -/+65km when blasters are limited to 25 end falloff and dmg not scratching your paint.

So it's all about who whines the best ?

Swap the web bonus to 5% tracking bonus or even 7.5% to match the megathron's bonus.

Or remove Talos drones and nerf base speed so it can't break 2.4km/s with ease.

Or do none of that, I like the none of that part.

We should stick with none of that.

Gallente need a Win, no one else needs a win they all got Drakes and Tengu's and Vagabonds and Maelstroms and Abbadons and Guardians and Loki's and Zealots and...

Gallente needs a win.

Web/Target Painters have always been a minmatar ewar bonus. Gallente have traditionally always gotten bonuses to their point ranges and sensor damps....

Please keep the ewar seperated. The pirate faction ships have mixed some of these abilities (obviously because they are intended to be a mixture of technology from the two empires) but these tier3 ships, from what i understand, are not Pirate ships and should not be mixing bonuses from other races


I understand your frustration but, in my opinion, you are coming from a false sense of how much the designers care about faction flavour. The EWAR/Faction link only came about with T2 Recon ships, and got extended to EAS later. Check out the fleet/navy faction items:

  • Caldari Navy: Stasis Webifiers, Warp Jammers
  • Imperial Navy: Energy Vampires/Destabilisers
  • Republic Fleet: Warp Jammers, Target Painters
  • Federation Navy: Stasis Webifiers
  • Ammatar Navy: Energy Vampires/Destabilisers
  • Khanid Navy: Stasis Webifiers, Warp Jammers


So, the Republic Fleet get Web Jammers and the Federation Navy get Stasis Webifiers. See also that the Caldari and Khanid Navies get both, but no ECM! In fact it's only the Republic Fleet who actually have an EWAR module (the target painter) that complements their T1 ship bonus (Vigil/Bellicose), and that only got introduced relatively recently.

Its only CCP who know whether their designers actually had an original concept of faction flavoured ship EWAR bonus coupled with items that didn't get carried through or not.

Fairness doesn't come into it.

Adapt.

Web range bonus would be much more useful but yes it would kinda make the minmatar recons somewhat obsolete in fleets if it was put on the talos, as it stands, Talos is great for screwing ceptors, Rapier is great for catching stuff running back to gates or trying to run away.

Seems to work fine!

I don't see the problem here, just get close and face-melt.

Sums it up nicely

Web Strength is a nice compliment to the short range of blasters.

The thing is most fleets underuse webs, remote sensor dampeners and other tools provided to help Gallente ships close.

The Talos fixes a couple issues with blaster BC's, 1) range, its finally a BC that can hit past scram range (yay) and 2) being kited.

That web bonus means it behooves you to fit a web, and with 4 mids that means you are armor tanking so you aren't going to be running down recons and nano-canes, and you aren't going to see Hyperion DPS without going pure glass cannon fit.

It'll be fun I think, expendable, but fun.
