Hello once again everyone. We've got a small package of tweaks to capital weapons to announce, intended to help bring us a little bit closer to balance between the different dreadnoughts.

For the most part you all know the major balance problems with the class, the relative dominance of the Moros and the fact that the Phoenix has extreme difficulty applying damage to moving targets, even a moving carrier. These changes apply directly to the capital blasters, autocannons and pulse lasers, as well as to the siege modules themselves.

These changes are not expected to bring the class into perfect balance, but it should be a step in the right direction and be something we can build upon as we go forward.

X-L Blasters: -15% tracking, -10km optimal, +10km falloff

X-L Autocannons: -10% tracking

X-L Pulses: +6.666% optimal

Citadel missiles: Remove the explosion velocity penalty from siege modules

Let us know what you think!

These changes are a good start. I think all dreads (except for lolPhoenix) will still be blapping, but I am happy to see how much this impacts things before further changes are made...

Never fails. I buy a ship, it gets nerfed. Anyone have a ship they want nerfed? Let me know.

Not a complaint by the way. I think these are good changes.

These changes mite be cool (like seriously the Moros was the 0wnboat for sure) but are you sure of the Naglfar nerf, as slight as it is, before anyone has even gotten around to using them?

Free right? Absolutely. I'm in Amamake but can probably run the blockade to anywhere but Yulai and other Concord systems. ;-)

I'm an idiot, don't mind me.

Even though these changes are not really changing the general rule of Moros > rest, they bring them much closer together and are an important step towards Dreadnought balancing.

I don't believe this change is significant enough. Dread blapping is still going to be a major issue.
