    how many hacs does it take to kill a rattlesnake


    Depends. Are you trying to compare a cruiser with a pirate battleship?

    im just asking how many hacs it takes to kill a rattlesnake
    also is there a reason they shouldnt be compared
    they are both ships

    If the ships are balanced correctly and intuitively it should take less HACs than T3. This though is not an issues with HACs because in the scope of cruisers they are fine, T3C are what are out of alignment with other cruisers.

    Trying to make one of the safest ships for transporting goods even safer?

  • Strategic Cruiser Focus Group Working Thread in EVE Technology and Research Center

    These look like they will out tank and out DPS HACs still.

    Why did the Proteus Drone synthesis projector take such a large hit to the drone bay size? 175m I very small for having 100mbps

    Edit: I don't see much of a reason to use a Deimos over a Proteus still based on the current proposal.

  • Strategic Cruiser Focus Group Working Thread in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I would expect it's because they are updating to the new figures.

    You do have to consider right now the Proteus gets a maximum of 100Mpbs and 225 m3 of drone bay, so in that respect there would be very little change, assuming it went down to 200 m3. in contrast the VNI gets 125Mbps and only 200 m3 of drone bay.

    I think even a 300 m3 drone bay would be fine. The main reason I'm not using the current drone Proteus is it's really low bandwidth and drone bay compared to other cruisers of the same price.

    The Proteus is not supposed to have a similar drone bay as the Stratios or the bandwidth of the Ishtar, it has options that both of those ships don't have, needing to sacrifice a little bit of drone bay is a fair trade off.
    The reason I didn't like to use a drone proteus was the difficult slot layout it created 6 high slots, 3 turret hardpoints, 3 mid slots and 7 low slots is a difficult drone cruiser.

    @Omnathious Deninard: I'm going to quote fozzie here and say that I think the point is to make the ships unique from other ships not more similar. But I get what you're going for. As someone that lived out of a domi for way too long in my early eve career I have a deep love for drones and like extra bay space for when they get shot at... but I'm not sure that the t3c's should get that same luxury.

    I'd also enjoy the bay as part of the base ship, but a blaster proteus with 100 mb of drone width seems kind of broken.

    I am in no way suggesting that the Bandwidth should be a fixed part of the hull, if possible I would like to see it added or subtracted based on what subsystem you have on the hull.
    Simply the drone storage section would be fixed.
    Edit: also I think the drones need to be removed from the blaster sub of the proteus.

    I personally think the group is very focused on trying to make sure that T3s aren't going to obsolete whole ship classes; I personally struggle with how can you make recons and HACs relevant outside of cost (or recons better range on ewar). If anyone has ideas there I'm happy to hear them.

    For HACs nerfing the base resists was a step in the right direction, they should do less DPS than the HACs also.
    Comparing the Proteus to the Ishtar, the Ishtar is the better ship in both tank and DPS now, comparing the Proteus to the Deimos While the Deimos has better tank now, the Proteus will out DPS the ship having 9 effective turrets with the Deimos having 7.8125 effective turrets.

    What about the drone bay on the Proteus? I think that's an important detail of the balance too. Should it be Ishtar, Stratios, somewhere in between or lower?

    Personally I would love to see the drone bay as a fixed stat on the ships.
    That being said, the Ishtar has 375, Stratios has 400, VNI has 200, current Proteus has 225, I think bumping it to 250 would be OK but I could also see dropping it down to 200.

  • Country Patch in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Considering the average age of the EVE player base, adding anything real world would have horrible side effects.

    From a RP reason the WH to Earth collapsed many many years ago.

  • BETTER PVE EVENTS and BETTER DESIGN PVE TEAM in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Eve is a PVP game, why would you expect they would have a huge team or dedicate a ton of time to PVE?

  • Would having a PvP arena help remove stuff from the game? in EVE Technology and Research Center

    No it would not, in fact it would most likely have the opposite effect of what you are thinking.

  • Strategic Cruiser Focus Group Working Thread in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Is this now touching the realm of power creep? At least in terms of the re-balance?

  • Ideas for EVE in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I thought "eve is dying" threads were instant locked.

  • Strategic Cruiser Focus Group Working Thread in EVE Technology and Research Center

    That seems to fit with the norm for caldari cruisers, looking through the ships it appeared at first glance only one had a full flight of light drones. Though we have to wait until the new stat sheets are released before we have an opportunity to voice our opinions.

    I also find the lack of drones on the caldari missile sub to be a hinderance as well. proposal on that bieng remove 1 launcher, shift 1 high to a low, add 25 bandwidth, 50 bay.

    caldari and drones... do you even belive in your words ?Lol

    Ibis, Bantam, Griffin, Heron, Moa, Blackbird, Osprey, Caracal, Drake, Ferox, Scorpion, Raven, Rokh - half of the frigates, all cruisers, the combat battlecruisers and all of the battleships have drone bays, and these are just the T1 versions.

    Old tengu only had drones on 1 sub, I don't see why the new one should get more drones.

    One more thing I would like to leave here: at the end of October last year I made this thread about how I think the T3Cs could be redone.
    The conversation didn't go far and the thread was locked due to inactivity, most likely because the idea is a huge wall of text.

    The reasons I bring it up again is because:
    - it has become relevant
    - some of my ideas are in the current concept, like removing the cloak from the offensive subsystems and putting the logi and command modules there

    Maybe now that it's actually happening, people will take a few minutes to at least read it, even if it's really long.

    They are in process of a second pass on the ships, also I don't see too many similarities between current and your proposal, and almost even less with what is being suggested.
