Calm down miner. As you pointed out, people think they can get away with stuff they would not in rl... Like for example illegal mining... - Ima Wreckyou*

Ok.... doesn't need an entire fleet or an 8b fit to make it viable in combat.

Blops aren't really fun. They are just much easier to hot drop than other caps (cheaper in most cases as well).

Basically I want a ship that I can use as a solo/duo pvper. As it stands you need a small fleet, support, etc to get much done with a blop.

no you just pick your targets, they are very viable in pairs and and even solo (not counting the cyno because thats not made for combat just holding the target in place) nothing really stands a chance against them, my panther fit is only 2bil which isnt that bad

Maybe, but only if they lose the ability to transport (or bridge multiple Covert-Opts) ships. In other words, If they're only allowed to jump themselves only. But in such a case, CCP would need to add an additional class of BLOPS as the current BLOPS are popular in their niche roles.

This was actually an idea that one of the devs threw out many years ago. They realized that they are trying to combine multiple roles into one ship, and it basically just turned it into a covert taxi. They said they were looking into splitting the class into a "support" and a "combat" type blop. One for bridging/supporting, one for pure combat.

Sadly it seems that CCP has moved on from the sweeping ship rebalancing, and only does a few ships here and there now... unless I've missed something.

i think you amissing stuff, they are rebalancing ships and modules on every update, but rebalancing things that have needed balance for a while, the usage of blops maybe doesnt make it a top priority compared to capitals, ishtars and t3's
