  • RIP Fun PVE Vargur in EVE Gameplay Center

    Seriously Bored wrote:
    Folks... you're missing a module. Forget about ABs. Forget about Micro Jump Drives. ACs + MWD + Bastion = Success The Vargur is amazing in Rubicon.


    Having a Vargur catching dust in my hangar and waiting for my subs to expire, I fooled around with it today and came up with this:

    [Vargur, arty]
    Republic Fleet Gyrostabilizer
    Republic Fleet Gyrostabilizer
    Republic Fleet Gyrostabilizer
    Gyrostabilizer II
    Signal Amplifier II

    Tracking Computer II,Optimal Range Script
    Large Micro Jump Drive
    Dread Guristas X-Large Shield Booster
    Adaptive Invulnerability Field II
    Medium Capacitor Booster II, Cap Booster 800
    Shadow Serpentis 100MN Microwarpdrive

    1400mm Howitzer Artillery II, Republic Fleet EMP L
    Drone Link Augmentor II
    1400mm Howitzer Artillery II, Republic Fleet EMP L
    Bastion Module I
    1400mm Howitzer Artillery II, Republic Fleet EMP L
    [empty high slot]
    1400mm Howitzer Artillery II, Republic Fleet EMP L
    [empty high slot]

    Large Ancillary Current Router I
    Large Projectile Burst Aerator II

    Bouncer II x2

    - Artillery fit to actually work with ranges you'd use with an MJD fit.
    - Dualprop MWD and MJD
    - 42+104 optimal with faction ammo, 813 dps without drones @ optimal, (918 with 2 bouncer II), 132 km lock range
    - 1435 dps burst tank in bastion sustainable for 2:37, 871 dps sustainable.

    Tried it ingame - works - hardly takes any damage and snipes just fine.

    However did you notice something? With a bare 2 slot tank, this ship is vastly overtanked and does cruiser DPS.

    Now comparing it to a sentry ishtar with rails, the tank is inferior due to it being immobile in bastion and having 3x the sig radius whilst damage application is worse due to large guns vastly inferior sig resolution.

    Bastion mode needs a DPS buff - I can outperform that with about any faction BS (pirate and navy) or even a rail/sentry hype.

    Pretty sure.... Yup, pretty sure that EVE Online would still happily exist if everyone who ever whined about this entire SOMER thing quit all their accounts right now. So please go ahead and quit, with this amount of whining I'm sure the community will be better for it.



    Already did when the issue came up (damned long-term subscription plans...).

    Can't really say I regret it, given the only people left will be gambling-addicted sheep.

    Eve lives and dies with its playerbase - now if that solely consists of simpletons being to dumb to call a phone-sex hotline when they feel lonely and fire up eve instead, it's not a big loss.

  • what happens when trolls become the establishment? in EVE Communication Center

    This is Eve - it was established by Trolls and considering recent developer conduct, they decided a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see them through.

    Accordingly, your thread title doesn't make any sense.

    Yeah? Guess what? CCP made the rules. CCP gets to decide to whom they apply. Not you, not the CSM and certainly not the army of forum trolls who somehow think they got a seat on the CCP board of directors.




    So? Guess what? The players fund CCP. The players decide to whom they give their money. Not you, not the CSM and certainly not the CCP board of directors.

    That's where you qualify to join my corp - I don't have to sit there and take it, because in the end of the day, it's their game and if I don't like it, they can keep it.

    If they don't like it, they can get back to sell Incarna, Dust 90210 or rotten shark (and tbh I'd be more tempted to invest in rotten shark rather than CCP given their recent conduct).

    And I just pointed out how PLEX are a non ISK faucet like scorpions are, and did not say it was a good idea.



    Scorpions aren't an isk faucet either - isk faucets are mechanics spawning isk into eves economy out of nothing, such as bounties, mission rewards, blue loot or insurance.

    However, due to the fact they can't be built by players, their supply can't be predicted by supply and demand, but arbitrary 'community' team decisions, rendering them highly volatile speculation objects, ending up as completely disconnected to a player driven economy.

    Now the people winning them at the poker tournament might have thought they received unique items.

    When the Somer team realized they successfully scammed CCP, they decided to keep it secret because they knew an RMT gambling site receiving them for doing what an RMT gambling site does would let their value plummet.

    Somer actually profits from CCPs system both ways - newbs buy plex from them because they get an additional chance to win that oh-so expensive ship, bittervets use it to cash out at least a fraction of the isk they invested.

    The dividend goes to Somer with the typical casino 'zero - bank wins' percentage as an icing on the cake.

    Good Job Somer., CCP fell for it, pass the cost on to the user and end up rewarding Somer for it twice in a row, whereas they and their possible follow-up organization should have been banned twice in a row, associated CCP employees having being fired for unethical conduct and breaking the EULA in multiple occasions.

    Wow - just wow...

    And I thought I was a drunk moron.

  • Announcement regarding rewards and prizes to fansites and third-party contributors in EVE Communication Center

    Read this if you're interested in Somers busines practice.


    The problems are:

    1. The site is a scheme not serving eves community at all. No matter what - Somer wins - otherwise they wouldn't be successful. I don't need to run a multivariate anynaylsis on that (I could, provided I had the numbers) - but that's just common sense.
    2. CCPs favoritsim doesn't only interfere with other ingame gambling sites competition, but GTC selling sites having partnerships with other 'fansites' such as battleclinic.
    3. It's no wonder Somer sponsor lots of ingame and OOG events - it strengthens their gamblerbase. Does Anheuser-Busch receive government gifts for running bud light TV-adds in superbowl commercial breaks to create more alcoholics? Should they receive any?

    _______________


    So much for the objective part - I'll refrain from posting any subjective comments as that would likely get me banned, given the completely arbitrary and self-serving nature of these forums moderating staff.

    Why dont we just call it the Night of Broken Glass while we're at it?


    That would be a far better name for current events, but Stabbers are more noob-friendly than CycloneBs...

    Yet I wonder, who would sponsor an event like that?

  • The night of the long knifes... in EVE Communication Center

    ...would be a really cool title for an ingame stabber FFA event.

    I wonder if someone would sponsor that (?)

    Some of you are bats*** crazy. You can't compare a skinjob scorp and a T2 BPO before invention. The latter fundamentally changed the balance of power. The former is a princess dress.

    Get over it.



    No - you really can't - a T2 BPO having been given out to a single entity is unheard of, meaning there is a limitless supply of the product from various entities which provides competition.

    Giving out unique ships (which are speculation objects) to rmt-laundring parasites like Somer is not even the same league as T20.

    It's just so much worse...

    Actually just unblocked you just out of boredom and am amazed at the level of stupidity you deliver.

    So what entitles a group running a self-serving gambling site site that never did anything valuable to the game except promoting itself to deserve special privileges?

    Disclaimer: whilst I personally have created more content than somer blink without ripping off gambling addicts, (pretty easy - I never created any content just as well, but at least I didn't exploit the braindead for personal wealth in the process), I wouldn't take gamebreaking gifts.

    Probably the only way to solve this terrible mess would be to hand out a free ishukone scorpion issue to everyone, replace the original 81 with a new unique skin of some kind, change CPU and PG to 1 and give them the reprocessing value of a single trit whilst fully reimbursing anyone who bought a Somer blink one and deducting the price from the sellers wallet.

    Well - the secret freebies came before the prizes, chronologically.

    The Prizes would have become public either way, although I get more and more convinced the responsible CCP employees actually are so stupid to believe nobody would realize that.

    I haven't really commented on the TOS changes in any way because the comments CCP employees have made on them are so mind-blowingly moronic, even I as the CEO of morons. can't relate to them enough to even comment on them - guess I'll just contemplate about it whilst impersonating myself for a while.

    The most annyoing fact is that CCP just didn't only T20 a single group just once, but twice in a row.

    And then it's not even a community site, but a gambling site abused for RMT laundry, sponsoring some terribly gamy ingame events and some player meetings to increase their own revenue.

    Seriously - following CCPs logic, Anhesuer-Busch should get a nobel price for sponsoring the superbowl.

    Wow. As soon as I read the Mittani report, I literally closed my game because I felt sick. What a crock of ****, CCP. Seriously. What the hell is wrong with you.



    Same here - this is so sickening I just unsubbed my accounts. This is not some emoragequit and I don't even want to quit, but continuing to give my money to a company making such a tremendous mass of disturbingly stupid decisions is something I can't reconcile with my conscience.

    CCPs absolute inability to learn from past mistakes is shocking. There's a nice saying about those not knowing history being doomed to repeat it - now CCP don't just repeat it, they repeat it with a vengeance.

    Sad, really.

  • CCP directly and secretly gifted SOMER Blink 30 Ishukone Scorpions (~450 billion ISK value) in EVE Communication Center

    Stupid, stupid, stupid...

    CCP continues to amaze me.

    Firing T20 and creating the CSM doesn't really help if you keep doing the same thing T20 did on a larger scale and as an official company policy whilst simply bypassing the CSM.

    This is wrong and corrupt on so many levels...

    At least BoB provided content - tons of it. Now all they got was a shoddy BPO.

    Whilst having run into BoB and the content they created, I swear I haven't ever come accross any content created by Somer blink in thousands of hours playing this game for almost nine years on multiple accounts.

    Somer blink is a purely self-serving organization feeding on the wide spread of gambling addicts in MMO populations.

    So they sponsored events? So what? It helps increasing the population they feed upon. If that is a community service, any empoyee of a company running commercials should receive a free Ferrari from the country hosting the corporate headquarters.

    Whilst it doesn't look good, the designers approach at least is consistent with the ships role.

    If the ships main feature is acting as a sitting duck, making it look like a duck makes sense.
