CCP, is this what you really wanted?

Alts are also no longer as tied to unique accounts with MCT allowing 3 training characters on a single account. Meaning you don't need to keep as many accounts active to keep your characters ticking over.

Unless the sov owners actually undock and then you'll have to, you know, put some effort in.

Why shouldn't totally undefended sov be "effortless" to take?

Indeed. In very fact, that is a Maxim of Life.

Could we get a source on that? I heard about T3Ds in general, but in what light it was said - hard to tell. Smile


The D3's were singled out as a class that was a little too good and in need of a rebalance, along with assault frigates needing a rebalance to make them more viable. Other than that, no details. Just talks of how their view of balance is more based on ship classes as a whole rather than specific ships.

Wouldn't expect anything until after the remaining D3's are released, and even then they'll probably want to wait a bit for more data before tapping them with the nerf bat.

And while I agree that the D3's are very good, they aren't these invincible killing machines that everyone keeps b*tching about.

First of all, a good destroyer has the tank of a frigate with the damage of a cruiser.

Now these things not only have 33% rather than total 25% bonuses, they can change their bonuses according to what is chasing after them.
So, the only way to kill them with a very small group is to send one or two D3s after them or to send a counter to each mode after them. Effectively needing 3+ T2 frigates to grab them and then some others to pile on and kill it.

People who try to solo them (in something other than another D3) are kited away and killed far better than the usual ships fulfil that tactic.

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Why would Destroyers have the DPS of a Cruiser? They're supposed to kill Frigates, and this hardly requires Cruiser DPS.
