Neuts in C2 space are almost non-existant for the regular anomalies save for a couple frigates here and there and one neuting BS in data sanctuaries. The mag and radar sites have a bit more neuts. Passive drake can do this without a prop mod, do a hair more DPS and not die even if it manages to get capped out.


I think that it is clear. Drakes are over powered.

Scan the system? -> 5 M
Salvaging and hacking? -> 100 M
Living in the system? -> 1 500 M
For everything else -> there is a Drake.


Proposed changes

Low Slots - 3

Med Slots - 6

High slots - 8
Launchers - 6
Turrets - 4

Battlecruiser Skill Bonus: 5% shield resistance and 5% bonus kinetic damage of heavy missiles and heavy assault missiles per level
Medium Hybrid Blaster specialisation: 7.5% bonus to Medium Hybrid Turret optimal range and 5% bonus to shield resistance per level.

Alternatives

Cyclone

Low slot 5 OR Med slot 6 (either a little boost in damage or a better tank.

Brutix

Additional med slot for propulsion, tracking computer or more cap.

The hurricane is probably the closest in terms of equally balanced however the other two races are in dire need of looking at.

Gallente need blasters to work properly and the Harbi could use a larger CPU grid.

Lol

Actually, you can discuss something for general opinion before you take it to the serious forum. Blink

There is three ships and they neut, so the OP wants the whole ship nerfed


No. It is the clearest indicator that brought this to my attention.
What is the best battle cruiser by far than any other?
Most damage? Some hurricanes, some harbingers, all good drakes because they only use one or two weapons of a set size.
Biggest tank? Drakes.

So they are top for damage, top for tank and can pull off a really good passive tank.

That extra mid slot is exponentially better.

(Tangent note: You can fit Large and X-large shield boosters to battle cruisers but have you ever tried to fit a Large armour repair to one?
Duel rep? Oops there goes another low slot that the shield tanks don't have to pay!)

Dear OP.

Wormholes.. C2....

Wormholes go up to C6.

Try taking that drake into a C3 or up and see just how far you get......

Let me give you a hint - you'll be in a pod before you can scream "oh ****"


It may be that you've spent all you're eve-time in a C2 wormhole. There is alot, ALOT more in the eve universe, and the Drakes and other pretty ships in game arnt overpowered because you take a Ferrari to a go-cart race. A C2 is meant to be incredibly easy, as like the C1 - its designed to introduce you to wormholes and the mechanics of them. IE - new players that can only fly a frig or cruiser = the difficulty of a C1/C2 is PERFECT for them.

If you need a challenge, move to a C3.


Also, Blasters/Hybrids are Gallente. Drake is Caldari.


And, you're mastercard/drake skit failed miserably, it makes no sense and is not teh funnies. Please try again.

Even in a C3 you really need to know what you are doing to solo some of the sleeper sites.

Never forget you have other people that get connected to the hole you could be running sites in, wait for the opportune moment (such as when you finish killing the last sleeper) and come in and blast you.

Yes Drakes have an amazing tank and I enjoy flying mine, but that doesn't mean they are indestructible or over powered.

I'll pretend I didn't see it. P

Still, this thread is more suitable for this forum section rather than EVE General Discussion.

Wrong

Corp mate's ship

- 7x Heavy Missile Launcher I (I don't know why he isn't using Meta)
- 1x Drone Link Augmentor
- 2x Large Shield Extender II
- 3x Shield Recharger
- 1x Invulnerability Field II
- 4x Shield Power Relay II
- 3x Medium Core Defence Field Purger I
- 5x Hobgoblin II

As you can see a pretty horrible fit. He does Druze solo. I have just tried to help him in the C3 and had to keep warping in and out. I agree it should take a battle ship or a T3. He stayed in, didn't break a sweat and did way more damage than I did.

Do you fly a Drake? I guess no. Drake is not overpowered and passive tank has high price (using all rig slots, low slots and mid slots for tank, crap dps, high need for skills).

So ... the first Drake does way more damage and the second drake has way more tank. The first Drake will probably have more tank over time than the Cyclone.

















P.S. Did you notice it was a Dread Guristas tank?

Sorry but yes DRAKES ARE OVERPOWERED . Every other races bc's are extremely weak when it come to comparing them with drakes . A drake can do just as much dps as other races battleships and can also if fitted properly have way more ehp than them as well .

A friend in my alliance has a drake that does 1000dps per volley and a passive tank that gives him 113,000 ehp . My faction fitted navy apoc with a omni tank of 85% resists and 1000 dps per volley and a 90,000 ehp on the other hand still doesnt come close to the drake . Since amarr ships only have 2 damage types that is reduced depending on races we fight in missions . It takes less time to be efficient in a drake and a drake can solo lvl4 missions . However other races usually have to go t3 ships or go for battle ships since their battle cruisers are only useful in close quarters and pvp , and have serious capacitor issues along with bad tanks .

To make things worse you dont even need to target anything . Get some fov ammo and away you go if you get jammed . The drake itself has an unfair advantage over every other races battle cruisers and is overpowered when compared to them .

Because we know your Apoc doesn't shoot faster than a Drake, right?

tl;dr you are bad at this. Stop.

If there is going to be anything done involving a "New Drake" I suggest a T2 Drake (which for you smart enough to catch on, would also mean T2 Hurricane, Myrmidon and Harbinger).

Even with the Invulnerability and the Dread Booster, I figure that it is a heck of a lot cheaper than a Tengu and not so far from the bottom to mid level ones.

Drake needs nerf. I Think its bull poo that a Drake can kite and hit 70k with heavy missiles and still have a bullshittank
A cane maybe have more dps but if you fit 720 you will have bad tank and **** dps on long range.

In a Drake load kinetick missels and win.
