Frigates are used alot in pvp, both as a fleets of their own and in massive fleet fights.

Trust me, I almost know what I'm doing.

Nerf battleships!

Go on!

Make them cry like super pilots!

Eve is about Capital ships, WiS, Boobs, PI and Isk!

Asking for a 'nerf' to BS, to address a problem that you have with light drones is rather ham-fisted (like CCP, so watch this space!).

Better solution, one that leaves PvE as is AND solves your problem, is to decrease their activation/orbit range or decrease their orbiting speeds .. either one will make lights MWD burn a lot more, thus making popping them for a frig that much easier.

I didn't exactly see Battleship pilots crying when supers got nerfed because their boats got owned by bombers....

One reason why frigs are not used in fleet fights is cause of small drones who powned them.

I propose to remove Bs ability to use small drones (so to limit them to med and large drones)

No limitation for T2 Bs, Marauder need all drones and Black op actually don't really need to be nerfed

That will encourage variety in fleets, and will allow low skills players and frigs specialist to join the fight

Best regards,


If you do not know how to counter the drones it realy is your own personal issue. Some players spend alot of time to skilling up drones cause they can be used aas an defensive weapon. Your proposal will render most of their training and also make some of the battleships useless. Also gallente fawors drones as an offensive weapon. Should gallente abandon their combat doctorine cause you don't know how to attack a battleship?

Best would just be that YOU would learn how to counter the drones. After this the bs is relativly easy target for you.

So no point changing the game so it would be EASIER for YOU.

Let's just remove drones entirely. Nothing in combat that isn't flown by a player.

I was kidding, but... that could make fleet comps a lot more diverse.

Clearly you don't know how to fly frigates if you're getting shot down by drones.

Also, just shoot the drones. Unless your enemy is in a dominix, they're gonna run out of drones before you run out of ammo.

I just want to note, that the carebear community rejects the idea that the op is one of us, we wish to distance ourselves from the op.

Its not possible to please all the people all the time, but it sure as hell is possible to Displease all the people, most of the time.

There is a reason that a battleship costs 200x more.

You still can easily kill lvl 4 frig rats with medium drones, also u can fit a web in order to help.

Not a real issue for me, missions rat are way more easy to kill than players...

You've never tried to take down 4 spider drone 2s have you.

They are hard to catch with warriors while webbed, med drones wouldn't stand a chance (unless you gimp the average BS mission fit with 2-4 webs, which is moronic).
