The fact that the only reason to choose between Shadow Serpentis and Federation Navy modules is cost should be changed. Give them some sort of difference to make there be a case where the other is bought.

I feel like these two groups could use some tweaking. With the velocity bonus being the same you sort of shafted the RF/Domi versions. The CPU diff is really too little to matter on the cruiser/BS level when you consider the fact that FN/SS use both less grid AND cap. Why would you ever pick the other two?

I guess it can sort of balance out for frigs, but I think you need to keep some of the speed diff too, tbh. Scale back FN/SS to 140% would be my suggestion to keep the trade-off.

The only reason I used RF and Domination afterburners before was because they used less cap. Seems really obnoxious to shaft them like that.

The old split of "fuel efficient" versus "more speed" made perfect sense. Having one use more powergrid and the other use more CPU makes sense too. But, higher capacitor consumption needs something to balance it out versus the counterpart module.

CCP should add more NPC 0.0 space to open it up and liven things up: the Stepping Stones project.

tried to line them up best as i could,

why has the traits of the gist and core been reversed?
you do know gist is from angels right? and there for should be like the domintaion as well as the core to be like the serpentice one.

here you have the core with the lower sig penalty then the gist.
you also switched the cap cost too, core is meant to be the conservative one and gist is meant to be the costly one

I'm still of the opinion that the names should be formatted in some kind of consistent way:

(FLUFF name) (PROPERTY) (X MN) Afterburner/Microwarp Drive

Right now you have some modules starting with "1MN" and ending with "Afterburner" and others with these two right next to each other. If there is a hierarchy it isn't clear, and some people are going to still search "1MN Afterburner" and miss results because of this formatting.

Would make sense, especially considering that all the modules except for the T1 meta versions have their explicative text bits in front of the class numeration.

Goals of Module Tiericide
  • Reduce unnecessary complexity
  • Provide meaningful options within the module set


Changes
  • Give a speed bonus to higher meta Microwarpdrives
  • Renaming MWDs to 5MN, 50MN and 500MN
  • Bring back some of the old school flavor names (Cold-Gas!)
  • Differentiate Officer mods from Deadspace mods
  • Fix some flavor issues with Faction mods


Q: What happens to my meta (Limited/Experimental) modules
A: This -
  • "Limited 1MN Afterburner I" become "1MN Y-S8 Compact Afterburner"
  • "Experimental 1MN Afterburner I" become "1MN Monopropellant Enduring Afterburner"
  • "Experimental 10MN Afterburner I" become "10MN Monopropellant Enduring Afterburner"
  • "Experimental 100MN Afterburner I" become "100MN Monopropellant Enduring Afterburner"
  • "Limited 1MN Microwarpdrive I" become "5MN Y-T8 Compact Microwarpdrive"
  • "Upgraded 1MN Microwarpdrive I" become "5MN Cold-Gas Enduring Microwarpdrive"
  • "Experimental 10MN Microwarpdrive I" become "50MN Cold-Gas Enduring Microwarpdrive"
  • "Prototype 100MN Microwarpdrive I" become "500MN Cold-Gas Enduring Microwarpdrive"
KISS = keep it simple stupid

The first reason is... If limited and *** equal compact... why not just remove the extra *** and just make them all limited. Same for experimental and prototype equaling enduring; just remove the longer term and call all the names from that grouping prototype.

The second reason is players are already used to the names limited and prototype. Search fields and bookmarks and your wiki would require yet another ridiculous, unnecessary update.

The third reason is adding an extra name just for a namesake is not needed and increases obscurity.

ex: "Upgraded 1MN Microwarpdrive I" become "5MN Cold-Gas Enduring Microwarpdrive"...
Ok, so simply call it "5MN Upgraded Microwarpdrive I"
or maybe "5MN Enduring Microwarpdrive" (if you have to go with the enduring/compact changes).

This cannot be echoed or said enough in this thread. One of the biggest complaints about the game presently is that the ship meta is stale and brittle, and a good part of this is because speed is king.

Speed will always be king, so long as it gives massive tactical AND operational advantages.

CCP should really be taking a hard look at re-balancing tactical level (on-grid) fights - making sure there is a place for all six ship classes. Slowing the faster classes down some and increasing the warp-to range to 200km would help a great deal.

Then they can start looking at the operational level - how people get to the grid to fight. How quickly reinforcements can arrive, etc.

Just maybe, if they get the above right, they might even have a chance of getting the strategic level properly adjusted - i.e. why people fight.

CCP should add more NPC 0.0 space to open it up and liven things up: the Stepping Stones project.

I'd like to see a super fast anti-kite MWD for burning down and tackling kiters with extreme speed and extreme cap usage (but no cap penalty) so it can only be used in bursts. Maybe a built in penalty on using capbooster to stop kiters abusing it.

Another MWD for kiters which would be slower than the current meta

and another with low fitting and cap usage for use by tight fits, and ships with cap issues: especially amarr, and snipers who just need it to keep range against ab fit brawlers.

This might have interesting implications for sansha ships. I am taking a wait and see approach. T2 now has reasons to exist.

So far so good. Small tweaks are good. Be prepared to adjust every 24 hours though due to unforeseen keikaku.

agreed.

Pirate modules ought to offer a dangerous edge...like more overheat bonus
Navy modules should be more robust (10% less heat generation) or something

just an idea.

Make it an afterburner that has the option to inject cap charges for speed increase. Anti-kiting mod.

AB T2 is at 135% atm .. i would like too see it closer too 160% increase the cap use too 25 ish.. and i would like a restrained version that specialises in low mass addition, so effectively a high agility version, serpentis and fed navy could be the faction version.

compact should be more like 8pg 11 cpu
enduring and 1mn 10pg 14 cpu
1MN AB 11pg 16cpu

and scale that up for 10mn and 100mn's

T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats
