Will the visual effects on wormholes that indicate size of ship that can pass through be overlaid on top of the existing visual effect that shows what class of space is on the other side?

Because the examples don't really show that.

Even harder burner missions sounds fun. Now can we have agents added that only do burner missions?

  • As much as I appreciate the ongoing ship balancing efforts and welcome further tweaks where needed, there are other ship classes in far greater need of a balance pass than Interceptors and Interdictors in my opinion.

    Surely it would be better to have different sized wormholes (literally make their visual effect bigger or smaller) depending on their mass limit than assigning them arbitrary colours?

    The colours already have a use, denoting which class of wormhole it leads too; so you are effectively confusing that information with a system which uses colours to describe size, which is a bit backwards.

    Bit confused here.

    At the eve of the upcoming grand debate on nullsec sovereignty warfare CCP is introducing French Military Victories?

    Please finish balancing Recons/Logis/Hics/T3 before moving on to modules. Sure it's probably easier to just forget about them but finishing the ships is long overdue.

    Hopefully the Raptor gets a little better with this new balance pass.

    But what about Recons, T3s and Black Ops? We're still missing the rebalance for them. Now another release goes by and we're still waiting. And the capitals haven't even been touched yet.

    It's good that module tiericide finally begins, but holy **** would it be neat if ship tiericide could finally be finished. With the balancing-tempo right now we'll have the other ships rebalanced several more times before those three groups are finally done. Ugh

    glad you adding more burner missions.

    but could we make Ewar (baring jaming) work on burner missions? and they behave based on this. so if senser damper he moves closer? just an idea.

    I'm liking these changes. The 6 week cycle seems to be getting the little quality of life improvements out faster.

    Agreed. The Raptor and Crusader and pretty terrible at the moment. And Black Ops really need to be made not sucky. The Pilgrim is pretty sad as well.

    T3s are a pretty big can of worms though. I expect these will be the last subcap to get balanced and I think they will probably have to be done in their own release given how much work balancing them will be.

    Nice features Smile

    I'll address a bit the ship balancing. Don't get me wrong, it's great that ships are getting worked on, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to follow all the changes especially when you are on 6 week development cycle now. Ships, fits and tactics are shifting every couple of weeks and it's becoming a bit tiresome to go through them all over again every couple of weeks. (I'm talking outside nullsec meta, of course... That's an isolated / separate ecosystem.)

    Again, don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining about work done so far and am not denying that some ships or even classes of ships could use balancing. On the other hand I really hope that major ship balancing will stop in the near future with just small tweaks introduced every now and then.
