Carriers and Supers with drones are to easy for Krabbing, lets change to fighters and let them multitask, that will fix income...

No "big" wars, all are krabbing, more isk is generated, lets change damage for Carriers/Supers....

All are krabbing then more, because still no big wars and less income then before, CCP, whats next?

Perhaps its just because nothing big is going on and all have time for do this instead of having fights over SOV because of Foz.... :P

So since you decided to go fully ******** on every income source, what's left for making ISKs ?

Oh, high-sec Incursions, forgot about these.

I can't for the life of me figure out why this is a good change. The last 2 years in a row ISK making opportunities have been major nerfed. In order to plex my account i have to spend more time playing this game. I understand you have to make money but so do i to keep playing. If it becomes an issue where i cannot keep playing due to ISK method Nerf (continuous) than i will no longer be able to play eve. This isn't a grr you post or a angry post, its a real problem i foresee for many players my self alike. Super ratting was the only reason for me to move out to NULL to be with Goonswarm. You nerf all of Null (ore atoms, Ratting) but you do not touch High security space Incursions? .... Yes i post terribly I'm sorry.

Hi Space Friends,
Coming with our release on Tuesday, we’re significantly reducing the damage output of Fighters.

We are making this change because Carriers & Supercarriers are too strong in PvE, specifically anomaly ratting in Nullsec. As you may have seen in the May Monthly Economy Report, there is a significant upward trend in the Money Supply. This is primarily due to NPC Bounties.
This trend is unsustainable. Having such a large ISK faucet is bad for the economy, and this ISK faucet is concentrated to a relatively small number of players.
We also think that Carriers and Supercarriers are a bit too effective in PvP now. This change will significantly change the PvP balance, but we’re confident that Carriers and Supercarriers will remain powerful options for PvP.

  • Light Fighters (Space Superiority): No Change
  • Light Fighters (Attack): 20% reduction to Basic Attack and Heavy Rocket Salvo damage.
  • Support Fighters: No Change
  • Heavy Fighters (Heavy Attack): 10% reduction to Basic Attack and Torpedo Salvo damage.
  • Heavy Fighters (Long Range Attack): 30% reduction to Basic Attack damage.
  • Heavy Fighters (Shadow): No Change
  • NPCs are 15% more likely to shoot at fighters than they are currently.

We will continue to observe the economy after these changes and will make adjustments as necessary to keep it healthy for all our players.

If you truly wanted to do something with isk generation, you would fix incursions.
Which means this is just an excuse from you.

Hey, what about making reasonable changes from the start and not nerf it into the ground AFTER the players invested huge amounts of time and ressources in things like supercarriers or rorquals.
We are not in World of Warcraft where we can simply reroll to another class in a few days or so.
In EVE, it is really frustrating.

Wait what?
Srlsly no.
Who had this idea?


If you wan to slow down PVE income - reduce bounty, or increase the rat EHP.

Im pretty sure that if the MERs continue like this, there will be timers on ratting anoms too.

Im not complaining though. I agree that having such massive isk faucets is bad.

Can you please delete VNI and Isthars from the game first before you tinker with fighters? They are by far the bigger problem in this game when it comes to ratting.

Having tons of VNIshtars clog up Havens, Sanctums and Hubs is not sustainable and huge annoyance to any player except for these AFK people.

Read as, **** off VNI/Ishtars. I want Sacs to myself and dont touch obvious op fighters.

Heres a grand Idea, Nerf incursions. The amount of ISK made through that alone is ridiculously farmed. However now your talking about nerfing capital ships again. Which I hardly see as a good thing when a capital is far more likely to die in actual combat than an incursion bear.

Then again theres always the VNI Navys out there with multiple accounts soloing all the high end anoms with no self risk as they watch a movie.

But yes its the capital ships/fighters. not the NPC bountys or income or site difficulty that was based off of a meta the better part of a decade ago.

CCP please rethink this.

So rather than address the obvious issues of incursions, you yet again massively weaken capitals in pvp. People who train and invest ~30bn in a ship should be able to make more isk than someone ratting afk in a vni.

If you really want to reduce isk availability, hammer on incursions and reduce overall bounty availability. Rather than yet again going full hammer on anyone who trained into a capital

At the rate you are going, you will end up running off most of your player base with these nerfs to fun content. Your real nerf is to nerf the numbers of players, until there are none left.

I can see that some changes were needed considering the high ticks one can make when running anomolies in carriers and the even higher ones with super carriers.

However I think that this reduction in damage is too strong. Why not start with 10% for the light attack fighters and 15% for the heavy attack ones. If that is still not enough, you can always do another.

I can see that some balance is needed in the bigger ships for both mining, pve and pvp but this is taking it a bit too far in one go.
