CCP made Talos so good full rack T2 neutrons hits 1000 DPS EZ then you can even slap Null in it and get as much range as autocannons with better DPS over range. Why they make this so OP its EZ FOTM until a nerf oh wait they buffing it again LOL Cool Did I mention it also does 1.8k/s and aligns in 6.5?



Quoting this to remind OP of the real reason he started this thread....Now on to Tippa.


To call the Tippia a troll would be a misnomer. The Tippa is perhaps one of the most successful and accomplished trolls in all of eve forums.

Its typical MO is not all that elaborate but it has refined its technique quite well. It searches for (often minute) details in a thread which it can exploit and then harps on them with pinpoint precision. Its goal? To surreptitiously change the focus of any forum thread to one which he can argue wisely about and wave his epeen around in full glory.

It often does this by rephrasing the OP into a seemingly similar argument or expression, but if you look closely, the new stated argument is often quite different from what the OP intends.

To be successful, the Tippia needs the author of the OP or others in the thread to accept its new focus or argument and begin to converse with it on these terms. I have watch the Tippia take modest forum threads and single handedly turn them into quasi threadnaughts using this technique.

The best defense against an attack by a Tippia appears to be to deny it the ability to refocus the OP into its own new topic. Although this sounds easy at first, one should not underestimate the Tippia's Zen like ability to ninja a thread.

Be careful. Scientists' work on Tippia repellent seems promising, but until we have that, it its best to avoid all direct conflict with the Tippia.



HTH

Be careful what you think, for your thoughts become your words. Be careful what you say, for your words become your actions. Be careful what you do, for your actions become your character. And character is everything. - author unknown

Blastos actual performance doesn't matter anymore, it's awesome just for of the pure entertainment value it created out of this thread Blink.

Just think about it, instead of having Cheerios in the morning you could treat yourself a delicious bowl of Blastos. Yummy!

Could even make commercials for it.

Here comes the morning,
Having a hard time darling?
A bowl of Blastos a day,
Keeps your forum boringness away!

The buy far most OP thing about the Talos is that its beautiful. Those Gallente sons of bitches made a ship the just drips Majesty. I mean so meany Gallente ships look like a spoiled pile of quivering space meat. But this ship with its smooth transitions and sweet thrusters...... I mean dam, I'm normally in to human females but I'd tap it.


on a side note here's the ships whole life cycle-
They hatch as navy comets and feed on serpentis rats till there are ready for there first molt. After they shed they begin feeding on shadow spawns, to fatten up for the winter. After a whole summer of eating they are now Brutixs plump and ready for hibernation. As the weather warms they come out from hi sec, with a new found taste for blood. After feeding on players for the spring they shed and become Talos's and begin looking for a mate. buy late fall if all gos well for the Talos it will find a mate. Like the pilot fish mating is for life and bonds the two for ever as a Megathron.
now that we all know a little more about the life cycle of the Talos we can all appreciate its Majesty a little more.


What the ****.

I'm interested in your Talos fit, Liang. I'm playing around in EFT and getting some decent numbers, but I checked out your KB, and while to my dismay you have yet to lose a Talos, I did notice on your KMs that your using Ion Blasters, which means I'm already off as I was thinking surely Neutrons since they're not a problem to fit at all.

because a y-t8 has a smaller activation cost, which means it essentially works out the same as a t2 but with less fitting.

I was going to call shenanigans on this, but yeah.. assuming you overheat and have hardwires, yeah that's pretty plausible, even just with t2.

It's just a pity that really Taloses (Tali ?) are such obvious primaries Sad

Yes, especially since I don't troll.

I ask people questions about their presumptions, and some people apparently get horribly offended by not having their unfounded, contradictory, and just plain old false claims questioned.

Probably. I got a decent buff in Crucible, so it'll most likely be a nerf the next time… P
