Here's my feature / idea:

Nerf all T3 ships down to balanced stats.

Real original, right?

Listen, it seems once a day some noob with dreams of EZ mode for all PVE activities comes to F&I and suggests "T3 _____".

Most recent example.

Then, as would be expected from intelligent, sensible humans, multiple players start explaining how T3 cruisers were OP cancer when introduced (still are), and T3 destroyers are straight up OP cancer as well, and how every single player with a brain and hope for a good, balanced game wants to see T3 ships removed/nerfed/paradigm-shifted/whatever to become balanced before any new, of-course-going-to-be-OP-AF-because-CCP-can't-release-anything-new-without-making-it-so... ships.

So I found myself reading that thread, and at first I was smiling and happily liking all the replies that state things like:

So...like T3 destroyers?

T3 BS would be a menace, just as T3 cruisers and the new T3D are. We do not need more power creep, overpowered nonsense or "wouldn't it be cool if" stuff.

Even if the heavily distorting effects of the existing T3 hull classes had been cured I would not want to see T3 BS introduced.

Yeah, that wouldn't be terrible for the game at all.

Roll


But then by this far down I started to get angry. How in the actual **** can CCP create these ships, with the stats they have, put them in the game, hear these kinds of things for YEARS..... and continue to do nothing?

Are you blatantly ignoring us CCP? What is the ******* deal here?

Maybe it's just a vocal minority saying these things, but we are the CORRECT and intelligent vocal minority.

T3s, as released by CCP, have been stupid AF every time they come out.

I am so f*cking bitter. I swear to god I need to stop coming on this forum, it's sometimes interesting, but often infuriating.

HOW IS EVE BEING RUN LIKE THIS?

Oh yea, so back to my idea:

Give all T3 ships normal, standard T1 base resists.

Boom. There. Done. Try it out, maybe we tweak it later and buff them a bit. Maybe we don't. Balance is so easy. Changing stats of things in game is SO EASY. You can change it 7 times a week if you want, you have a downtime every 24 hours... I can't even. I'm done.

From this point, this post became nothing but a rant...

The post in this link puts them in a cruiser power level while maintaining almost all of there current versatility.
The example is of a Proteus.

I don't deny that for a second. The whole point of the post pretty much was a rant, but with my suggestion of T1 resists being serious.

The previous "T3 battleships please" thread made me so angry that it indeed did inspire this rant.

But I'd like to know, do you disagree with my rant? Are you a fan of T3s are they are now? Maybe 100 players will show up to prove me wrong, and show that a majority actually likes and wants these OP ships.

You'll forgive me? Because I've been hearing "they are going to rebalance T3s" for quite a long time.

And my rant illustrates how frustrated it makes me that the ships are released so OP in the first place.

T3 cruisers are the best example... they've been out for how long? And we're still just hearing "they're going to rebalance them".

Sorry, not sorry. Still mad and in disbelief at the handling of this game's development.

A rant is a post that is often filled with angry and counterproductive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community and is helpful in development of the game and community. Rants are disruptive, and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your thoughts in a concise and clear manner while avoiding going off on rambling tangents.
