40% ? How is a 40% mineral increase going to slow down pirate BS proliferation? 1 carrier ratting tick extra will not make T1 BS an alternative option.

Combined with reduced availability of blueprints this should, and indeed already has, doubled the price. If that isn't enough to close the price/performance gap, they will likely reduce the drop rate even more.

Price was doubled because people buying them cheap before changes. Mineral increase is not enough, navy BS are still more expensive to build. Whoever doing this change has no idea what to do.

Would make sense if they were, at minimum, around the same build cost as navy BS.

It's Sisi, till it hits TQ it doesn't count.
Even Dev blogged stuff is subject to change.

Not really. Pirate Faction ships are far superior to Navy Faction ships.

If they are far superior what do you think it should be then?

95% of players dont have access to carrier ratting ...
Also, we need every mineral sink we can get because Rorquals have flooded the market with cheap minerals.

And there lies the root of the problem.
