Hey everyone! We'd like to try out another way to gather specific feedback, and we're looking for your help!

All four Tactical Destroyers have been out for a little while now and we're of course planning on making more adjustments to the class over the coming months. To help with this task we intend to put together a focus group on T3Ds that will help provide feedback (especially subjective feedback) on the current state of these ships and on potential future changes.

  • We will use this forum thread to accept applications from players who wish to participate in the focus group
  • The decision on which players are invited to the focus group will be made by CCP
  • This focus group will not receive any secret information, and therefore will not be required to sign any NDAs
  • We plan on making the logs of the focus group chat public for everyone to view. Everyone can see what is being discussed, but only focus group members and CCP devs can actually talk
  • When selecting focus group members, we will be looking for people who can demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and provide reasoned and calm feedback. We also want the members to have significant experience flying the Tactical Destroyers and to have strong knowledge of EVE gameplay, fittings and balance
  • The focus group will take place in a Slack team, so members will need to be able to use Slack

We are hoping that using a focus group of this type will allow us to quickly and easily gather feedback from players who have a strong breadth and depth of experience with the ships. If this group goes well, similar formats might be used for other focus groups on other topics.

Focus group members will not be forced to attend any meetings or to pass any minimum activity thresholds. People in any time zone are welcome.

If you're interested in participating in this focus group, please post in this thread with an explanation of why you feel that you would make a valuable addition. We'll provide a list of members and details of how players can observe the chat logs before we start inviting people to the Slack team.

This is a nice new direction. +1, Good idea. So long as the players can behave!

I would love to join a focus group around T3Ds. PvP is my primary activity in EVE and one thing I've noticed after returning to the game less than 3 months ago is how quickly T3Ds have proliferated across the cluster. I believe I have had extensive exposure to all 4 (flying 3 myself).

Thanks for putting forward a new initiative for player feedback.

I don't always post on the forums, but when I do, I prefer posting with my main.

XX FC I Can't find the fleet in fleet finder, please invite.

While I don't fly the ships (just as i refuse to fly the dramiel), I run into them pretty much all the time. Not sure what you were aiming for, but it's pushing cruisers and frigates out of the meta.

I would like to apply for this since I have flown t3 dessies themselves in many scenarios and also have lots of experience with the game and balancing. Since I want to make eve a better place I would be a good fit for this group.

I would like to join this discussion group.

I regularly lead t3d fleets and would like to offer a fleet perspective to contrast all the elite solo pvp viewpoints.

To allow a pve voice into this discussion I would like to submit my application for the focus group. T3D are one of my primary income sources, in all classes of space from j-space sleeper sites, to hunting clone soldiers I low, anom running in null, to highsec ded's.

I'd like to participate in this group. I've been giving constructive feedback on changes for a while now. I've flown mostly the Svipul and Jackdaw, but I've done theorycrafting on all four.

I would like to throw my name into the hat for the focus group.

I have experience in solo and small gang PvP use of all T3D's mainly in W-space and FW-space.

I also have extensive knowledge of T3D's capabilities for PvE in solo and small gang in (C1-4) W-space and low-sec, something I worry may be overlooked in a rebalance pass.

EDIT: As for my ability to participate in constructive discussion, I would point to my eve-related reddit activity (/u/JustSimpleQuestions), particularly within the confines of /r/fittings.

I'd like to apply to participate in the focus group. I'd like to think I have strong pvp experience, specifically solo, flying against T3Ds, as well as general game knowledge relating to fittings and balance.

I would like to be part of the focus group. I have primarily used the t3 hulls as sniper platforms in fleets of all sizes (because brawlers have low life expectancy in big fleets).
Zkillboard is still showing me as #4 top all-time confessor pilot (maybe the only one of the bunch with the most nullsec use out of the hull).

I'll throw my hat into the ring here. I've been smallgang PVPing for nearly a decade now, and have a good understanding of where the PVP meta is at and how T3ds fit into it.
#15 - 2015-10-01 16:22:35 UTC
I would like to join the discussion to provide constructive feedback from my point of view. I fly in both low and null-sec with micro and small gangs where we interact with T3D's. There is a lot to talk about so can't wait to dig in!

I'd like to be considered for participation in the focus group.

I have extensive experience with PVPing in ships of every size including t3ds. As an alliance tournament team member who is deeply involved in the theorycrafting metagame I also feel that I have an excellent sense of the relative strengths of different fittings, tactics, and use cases for most ships in the game, especially including t3ds which were very important ships in this year's tournament.

My tournament involvement also lends itself to working and communicating constructively with people who may hold different viewpoints, which I see as a very important trait to have for this focus group.

I would like to sign up for this

I have been following everything around the T3Ds from the first anouncement of the Confessor. I have been intrigued ever since by these little bastards and I very much enjoy flying them in their many forms

I have used the Confessor and the Svipul extensively in some of my pvp vids, and have made literally hundreds of different fits for them for ATXIII where you can see our team use them every game

I'm down, despite the fact that I want to burn all T3Ds in a fire :) I'd really like to see T3Ds in a fleet context as well as solo play and small gang skirmishing.

I would be extremely interested in taking part in this focus group. I've been involved in pvp in eve for the past five years, and FW in both warzones for the past four. I am a member of one of the premier Jackdaw using corporations in Eve and have flown all 4 of the T3Ds extensively. Small ships and their uses in pvp, particularly FW are my greatest interest in eve, and their position in the meta is something I have an considerable interest in.

looking forward to seeing how this plays out!
