Do you actually have much experience flying these ships? I mean properly not ganking two guys in a 20 man gang. Really, caldari frigates outside of interceptors are fine.

The drake is pretty much the best all around battlecruiser. I don't know how you could argue otherwise.



flew drake for months while I did a grind for a rokh (guns from whatever I had day 1). . I am a case of grass is greener with instant hit damage. I just got tired of chucking missiles in the primary game. Liked instant hit rokh damage and said well screw it....lets hit minny ships and projectiles since at the time hybrid fixing was a pipe dream.



See where FC is starting called primaries. then shift down 2-4 ships. targets one 1 and 2 will be dead by the time you lock and get the missiles off. Enough gun boats in support fleet and you will never hit a primay or secondary (hic or logi an exception they last a bit fit and flown right) . this is if you actually care to follow primary calls. I did. So I'd shoot 3-4 down on the list so I had a running start for primary calls. Drake was like doing algebra....fc was saying x, you were thinking x+2 or 3 depenidng on if sebo was on and the script it had lol.

canes was target and fire and hit. I liked the change of pace. Also liked actually hitting called primaries. to each their own as always.

You're supposed to fit projectiles on that Rokh.

only got large t2 projectiles recently. Just need the motivation to go to sisi an give it a go for cheap. Are some nice fits with projectiles and I get my cap back. current game stats its minimal dps lost I know. No hard numbers since too lazy to run the eft with new stats for beta....but guessing dps loss won't be that bad even with the damage bonus either. Hell getting better type damage make up for it I am thinking.

Yeah, okay. Try flying a drake properly in a gang of less than 40 people. They're actually incredibly strong, especially in small gangs.

EWar is Caldari's spiel. Of course they have the best boats for it.

The obvious fact being that Ewar modules take up valuable mid slots, upon which shields depend.

Who needs shields when you can just sit and jam someone all day? Why would you even want to fly any other recon other than the falcon? and how about the Golem, the best maruarder in the game. Caldari is just way to over powered hands down. I don't see how this could even be debated.

Wow....

The Rapier is on Par with the Falcon and Rook as it allows Battleship DPS to be put on small targets and stops nanoships in there tracks.

As for the Golem the Vargur is a muuuuuch better Marauder.

Outside of ECM, some Frigates and Heavy Missiles Caldari is a wet noodle...[/quote]

Lets not forget the 100km point range on a maxxed out arazu!
