CCP, your thread here:

https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=345280

says we'll be able to get MORE space than before if we use all low slots for cargo expanders; so, if I use ONE of the low slots for an inertia stab and the rest for expanded, I should get SAME space as before with slightly better align time.

WHY is this warranted? CCP, you made warp acceleration faster for frigs and cruisers (in oddyssey 1.0) WITHOUT thinking of how it affects jf's and other ships. Now, if a frig is outside the system, they can jump in system, warp to a cyno, land, and tackle a jf before the jf can get in warp - all with the jf IMMEDIATELY starting warp when it lands from jumping in system.

The reblance made this worse; we now have less space than before just to achieve FAIR play (using 2 cargo expanders and 1 inertia stab).

...how the **** do you figure that?

Do you even know how math works? If he had said, "If you use all low slots for cargo expanders, you will get 27.5% more space!" then, sure, you could say that using two should get you the same space, but that's not what he said. There's a whole lot of room between "3 gives more than you used to have" and "2 gives the same as you used to have".

"This means that Freighters can get significantly higher maximum capacity than before using modules, and we're increasing the volume of packaged capital ships..."

Either way, I told why it was warranted for us to need to be able to add ONE cargo expander and keep the same space as before the patch.

Quote:

Yes? And? Which part of that do you imagine to be untrue? The max cargo of a freighter before the patch was 981,250 on a Charon.

Today you can get a Charon to 1,204,740.5 - which is, as stated, substantially more.

I get that you don't like it, but I don't see where the "lie" is.


I'm not talking about the regular freighters.

For Jump Freighters, three T2 Expanders will increase cargo capacity by 1-2%.

Well, that's embarrassing for the OP.
