[Odyssey 1.1] Dominix bonus change

We are going to put a small change in for 1.1:

Dominix's drone tracking and optimal range bonus lowered from 10% per level to 7.5% per level.

This brings the bonus in line with all other damage application bonuses we give, such as turret tracking bonuses or missile explosion velocity/radius bonuses. The Dominix hasn't been oppressively powerful but it is extremely strong and there is no need for the over-allocation with regards to this bonus.

In case some of you think this is a reaction to the way the Domi performed in the alliance tournament, I can tell you that we will never make balance decisions based on that environment. The tournament certainly highlighted the strengths of sentry drones and damps, which are both powerful on TQ as well, but it removed many of their drawbacks and so it is not an effective way to assess balance or power in normal EVE.

Harvey James will be pleased.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

If I could place a bounty on you for this awful post, I would.

Gotta admit it is a little suspect, not as if people didn't question the wisdom of the 10% bonus prior to implementation. He is however probably telling the truth when he says the tourny was not the deciding factor, but there is no way it was not a contributing factor. Main thing is likely the FC assigned sentries from blobs in null that I hear is all the rage and has spawned Goddess knows how many threads to date.

Still pretty powerful, though I was thinking it was appropriate to differenciate between the Ishtar and the Domi on this bonus.

while (CurrentSelectedTarget.Status == ShipStatus.Alive) {

     _myShip.FireAllGuns(CurrentSelectedTarget);

}

Drone assign mechanics are far more broken tbh.

Not to worry. The complete overhaul of drones will square it all away.

EvE is supposed to suck.  Wait . . . what was the question?

Was 20km with the full bonus, so now it'll be more like 25-30.

Good change and needed to happen.

Domi with 10% optimal and tracking per level pushed the new ishtar into obsolescence before it's even left the hangar, increasing the ishtars bonus's (boni, i know) to compete results in omfg overpowered mega HAC.

You CAN place a bounty on them. Sad you can't put a detail as to why, though. (Y'all are on the CSM, "fix it!")

Also, I thought Goons were the kings of tinfoil hattery, or is that just everyone else? Blink

NO!

The plural of bonus is bonuses

Anyone who tells you otherwise is an uneducated pretentious idiot.

Very sensible, and good to see that recently-rebalanced ships can get reviewed a couple of months down the line.

How about also changing how omni's have rather ridiculous bonuses compared to gun tracking mods?, reduce the bonus and make them scripted.
