Am I supposed to be on anti light drone duty with the Flycatcher? Why not go after the frigate/destroyer drone ship altogether? exp.radius bonuses for rockets and lights feels confusing.

Hey everyone! As CCP Seagull mentioned in her coming in Oceanus dev blog, we're following up with Interceptors and Interdictors this release to apply some more polish.

These Interdictor changes are fairly minor as we consider the balance of this class fairly healthy. They are mainly aimed at helping the Eris, Heretic and Flycatcher compete more strongly against the Sabre for applications where combat ability matters.

One important module tweak that applies significantly to these ships (we'll be discussing it in more detail in an upcoming module balance blog) is that in Oceanus Light Missile Launchers will have their Rate of Fire decreased by ~6%.

Eris:
Replace the +5% Small Hybrid damage bonus with +5% Small Hybrid RoF
-50000 Mass

Heretic:
Replace the +5% Missile damage bonus with +5% Rocket and Light Missile launcher RoF
-5000 Mass
-0.1 Inertia

Flycatcher:
+1 Launcher
+10 CPU
+3 PWG


My question now becomes: with all these crazy "balances" to missiles, where do they currently stand in the rankings of damage compared to the other platforms? (drones, railguns, hybrids, missiles, etc..)

fozzie why do you and Rise have a compulsion to implement (needed) nerfs to overpowered ships by both hurting the ship and the weapon system it uses? HMLs had to die so that everyone and their aunt would stop flying Drakes, when does the madness end?


why do you hate caldari?
why do you hate missiles?
why do you like hurting me???? what did i do to you???????


I agree that the Drones are quite too powerful for the moment because the lack of counter measures.
But obviously light missiles are a bit too powerful nowadays.
it is funny to see that while CCP reduce the ROF of light missiles they are giving a bonus to ROF to the Heretic. Quite hard to predict what that will give.
In my opinion CCP should take a look to Explosion radius and Explosion velocity of the missiles. They do not fit with the stats of the ships ...

Don't see why you're nerfing missiles again tho...


Hey look, it's the drone exploit user.

And because it's slowly devolved to drones online. You of all people should know this.

All the Interdictor changes here are buffs to the ships.

The Heretic Damage -> ROF is a 7.6% DPS increase (which almost cancels out the 8% DPS loss from the 6% Rate of Fire penalty for LML) It's becoming a bit more mobile too, and don't forget the Rocket Heretic actually got a decent buff. The LML Heretic will probably be in the same position that it is in now (strong).

Flycatcher has gotten a significant boost. 16.6% DPS increase (The Flycatcher will have 10.5 effective Kinetic Launchers now). This is a 8.6% boost to raw DPS with light missiles, and a major boost to the Rocket Flycatcher.



+Rep for doing the maths I couldn't be bothered to do.

I don't really understand the LML nerf.

Thier DPS is paltry
Thier Alpha is less than Arty's
They're inherently disadvantaged by velocity and flight times that other systems arent affected by
They don't get range or tracking (exp radius would be the closest equivalent) bonus's.
They have fair range, but missiles are designed to have range and are still out ranged by other platforms.

I'm just really perplexed and angered by this. Guess EVE will continue to be drones on-line until we get some fresh perspective on whats happening out there.

it wasn't with the megathron. they seriously need to stop with this rof bonus as a bigger damage bonus thing, if they're also going to be handing out 37.5% and 50% damage bonuses wherever they feel like it.

The real problem is that when CCP talks about boosting something nobody uses, everyone's response is "why buff something we won't use?" and then when they talk about nerfing something everybody uses, the response is "OMG CCP you're ruining the game for everyone!" The problem isn't any lack of CCP's ability to balance the game, but a resistance to having a balanced game.


Implying anyone would cry if sentries#2014Eve got nerfed.


A little off topic, but, I think its high time Sentries had a serious looking into to. Since the mechanics they were originally designed around ceased to exist a few years ago.

I have this feeling that LMLs are being nerfed to make RLMLs look better by comparison.

CCP fix those damn bubble launchers on dictors, it is not normal that you are able to launch something and dock right away. Dictor bubble should be considered as aggro. This has lasted for too long. Pirate
