Edit: This was apparently pulled from sisi cache. As with all new changes I'm sure this is subject to tweaking before a live release.

Interesting...

I'm going to say it's not real until it suddenly vanishes. However, there are things in there you wouldn't bother to make up, like the Rook change.

Edit: Hi thar Naga, Oracle and Talos.

Looking through the data, Gallente will be faster than before, but less agile. Which means that mini goes faster (no matter the fit) and can still kite due to higher agility which in turn translates into faster orbiting speed.

My concern revolves around the idea that the Gallente might just not be able to scratch any minmatar ships or nano boats if they cannot catch them even on a straight line.

I propose that CCP ensures that blaster boats are fast enough to catch most ship (with help of scram +web etc), while also ensuring that a good pilot mini pilot that does not fly in a straight line can effectively kite a blaster ship.

In other words, a nano-mini boat should still kite a blasterboat, because it can orbit and change direction faster, but the blaster boat should be slightly faster or at the very least be able to match the speed in a straight line.

It only makes sense, Gallente need the speed (or range), not the agility. Make them fast enough to catch ships, and nerf their agility so that a nano boat can still kite a non-nano blaster boat.

Why do I refer to blasters boats and not rails boats? well because blasters are short range, high damage guns which compete against auto cannons which are short-med range, with med-high damage.

Using rail-guns in the current state ( med. damage+med/long range) vs (Auto's med-high damage+short-mid range) would result in a swift death as projectile boats are substantially faster than any blaster boat and can run circles around your tracking-gimped rail-guns(even with the proposed damage buff).

This is not a QQ post. More like an analysis of roles and pros/cons since I fly both mini and gallente.

I would like to thank the CSM and CCP for making these changes possible.

Thanks to the CSM for highlighting the the current problems with eve and the general player base dissatisfaction with the current version of wis (I'd like to see this done properly rather than rushed)

Thank you CCP for listening to the CSM and Player base and for making eve a fun and interesting game.
