Battleclinic was always my first stop when I needed to fit a ship I never flown before even after the infamous update, these days I know enough to fit the ships myself but I owe it all to the fits I found over there.
I'm sad to see it go and wish all people involved good luck in the future!

There are none, part of what made BC fitting posts good was the not so uncommon detailed description of what the fit did and what to engage/not to engage, aswell as a lively comment section for honourable spacenerds to discuss alternatives and fixes to the fit in question.

Complaints were mainly launched by people who didn't know you can show only fits for the current expansion, or that you can sort by ranking. Or that lolfits actually ended up downvoted to oblivion or simply locked.

It even had a bunch of trendy fits posted before they became normal in space, like hulltanked navy brutixes or active tanked dualweb railphobos all the way from *how do I rifter*-posts.

Sad to see it go, even in light of the botched UI rework.

We need to find a new home for EveMon. Not 2 days ago I was telling a newbro that he should get EveMon and use it to decide how he wants to remap for his expected skill training over the next year.

As of what will become of EVEMon, that is still unknown. I'm evaluating all options but my main concern is that hosting a website (presentation, forums, dev infrastructures) is currently out of the question due to my financial situation.
I'm sure that EVEMon will still be continued and distributed via BitBucket though.

If anyone out there has the means to provide EVEMon a home, I'm more than willing to discuss it.


Check your mail space friend, EOC.Tv is willing to help with Evemon. Ps: phone formatting sucks. Boci

Despite what some have stated, this is indeed sad news.

For as long as I can remember, BattleClinic has always been the first go-to site when doing fit ups on new ships. It was a good site and the fit ups were great to use as a basic guide. BC went hand in hand with EFT which allowed players the ability to customize and tweak those fit ups for specific usage to their skill level.

Yes, sad news indeed.

People finally thinking for themselves? Finally figured out that poaching shitfits ain't going to help their game? That there are better third party forums and better killboards (if you are in to that crap)?

BC had a good run, but good riddance, in my opinion.

Just lookup their forums.

BattleClinic Forums

Battleclinic was a partner for a long time, for me and for many.

I want to explicitly mention my gratitude for the honorable commitment of SghnDubh and MrCue, who dedicated their hours and hands.

They deserve a glorious downfall. They deserve an Epitaph,

An Epitaph written by EVE.

I will sponsor any good memorial event ideas,

Worst case, I'll post my own Memorial OP results.


P.S. : I'm not a particularly wealthy player. I know that many mighty leaders of many mighty corporations know the importance of BattleClinic's place in a capsuleer's life.

I am not asking for help, I'm asking for a show of respect. Honor thy fallen.

Leo Raage, Signing out.

PLEASE leave a ''Like'', or a reply.

Maybe It'll get to CCP'S trending trends.


battleclinic was a cess pit of trolling and super bad ship fits, period. Good riddance

Please Bob, the God of wormhole dwellers and the enlightened, finally eliminate attributes and remaps so that no one EVER has to give this advice to a newbro again!

Meh. At least I tried.

I'm sad to witness the bitterness in almost all your farewells.

Like BC was a thorn in your side.

It's not about the shitfits, It's about the principle.

BC, I humbly salute you, please forgive the sourness of the bitters.

It's not that, Old BC used to have a decent fitting tool, and KB. With a fair bit of Spacenerd who knew what was shitfit and what wasn't and would let people know what was shitfit and if wasn't a complete shitfit would tell people how to make the fit better.

The new one, was harder to navigate, you could only search for fits that include all fits, or the only recent patch. So if you wanted to Find a Gila fit after it's recent patch, you would also get ALL the pre-buffed Gila's as well. Making it even harder to find the right one.

Also the Killboard after the update at some point thought I was in Marmite. I have never been in Marmite.


So yeah, bitter that a semi-decent site, when from semi-decent, to complete trash. Also Bitter that they rather quit than improve. But hey, they probably didn't get alot of money from the site, and have RL **** to attend to.

After redesign Battleclinic became unusable anyway. I used to check " fits from killboard, most popular among top players" feature, but it was entirely missing after redesign made few years ago.

I would be happy to work with you to provide EVEMon a home. It's the least I can do to help continue to provide such an awesome tool for the community.

I dont get people shitting on BC fits.
Every fit, no matter where you get it from, is a suggestion - no more and no less. Besides, BC only provided a platform to share those fits. Players like us posted them. Hate EVE players, not BC.

So what I'm hearing is we now need an alternative source for fittings, then?

I mean the killboard was nice but I always used BC like a fitting lab for ideas.
