What's your opinion on dread blapping in regards to w-space? Do you think that the various dreads are balanced against one another?

Hello there!

I would like to name several situations that I feel are detrimental to the game. Give a solution and ask you for your stance on both. I do need answers to all the situations for my vote(s)

POS those three letters bring nightmares to just about anyone having the misfortune of having to operate one. The solution in the long term is obviously modular POS. Yet CCP seems to be backpedaling on implementing this despite the MANY benefits. What is your stance on the possibility of a near term bandage of a form of player POS that is only designed to be the equilivant of a Secure Container for ships until modular POS is ready?

Overpowered passive cloaking. It is now to the point where people are now beyond AFK cloaking but running Twitch.tv streams of enemy stations and systems! Would you support balancing cloaking to punish those who go AFK (Eventually able to be scanned down for decloak) while maintaining the benefits to people actively cloaking (Remaining at their keyboard)

Lack of Ring Mining. Again with the CCP backpedaling despite the many benefits for nullsec and other areas for the game. What is your stand on the crap that is moon mining?

The silly push by some in the community to end or delay "Local" or any effective means for those in a nullsec system to determine if a hostile or unknown is in system in them. This obviously needs no solution but I want your thoughts.

The horrible state of missions in hisec. The solution in my opinion is a complete rewrite to allow for a more incursion like approach that rewards those who want to train up logistic frigs and cruisers or be a specific role in a fleet. Also providing a way for newer players to experience group play in EVE.

Incursion suckage. With the nerfs to Incursions fleets have slowed to a trickle and it was sad to see CCP willing to spend more development time nerfing entire expansions instead of doing what was right being making other aspects of EVE better. Modular POS and Ring mining need dev time sooner so I will admit this ought to be looked at later however I wanted to get your views on them and have this to be some context to the next aspect of Logi.

Logi suckage. Logis do not have the tools to do their job. They need to be able to tell who is locked and taking damage and in large fleets the watchlist can't handle that leading to dependence on broadcasts that most of EVE seems to not know or refuse to use right. Look at any average HQ incursion fleet where people don't broadcast right stressing out logi or in fleet fights where following FCs orders makes it harder to broadcast properly. A solution is a logi only screen that is completely configurable to show who is taking the most DPS and who has the most locks in fleet.

Logi Suckage #2 Reps don't get you on mails? Wut? Solution obviously is to have repping those in fleet land you on killmails generated from fleet.

Sorry I didn't see this post before.

Currently, Morii are King in WH space because of their weapon system and how they are used. Due to wormhole mechanics, a majority of the larger fights end up concentrated on a hole or on a POS where your fleet is limited in its mobility options, both by wh mechanics and your enemy. This makes most engagements prime targets for a tracking moros, or a blob of them.

Couple this with an intelligent FC who knows how to use a support fleet and a Capital pilot or pilots that have an ample supply of drugs and it's not hard to see why many pilots are upset about getting systematically destroyed, often times by a force that may be of equal size or smaller.

While I believe that using a complete fleet built around dreadnoughts for DPS is not a bad thing, I do think that the moros needs to be reigned in slightly, whether it's a modification to Capital Hybrids or to the Hull's bonuses. En-masse, a well prepared and supported group of 6 morii seems to be nearly unbreakable, and puts out over 100k dps on paper.

Regarding dreads being balanced, aside from the Moros the Naglfar and Phoenix both need some love. I would be very happy If we saw some additional turret and launcher hardpoints on the high slots of the Nag, as well as a revisit to capital torps, so they could actually do some damage to subcapitals.
