  • [June] Fighter Damage Reduction in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Don't forget to remove some EHP and/or self-rep capability from NPC dreads while you're doing this change. Right now, a carrier's only barely able to overcome the local repair of NPC dreads. Removing this much damage from light fighters is going to make a carrier unable to kill them.

    Goons, once THE anti-carebear alliance, are now by far the biggest carebears of EVE.


    Um, we've been sucking crok since 2005.

    So if you have a specific problem you want to address, then address it in a way that is specific to only that problem (AKA increase the mineral price of the ship or nerf the drop rate of the BPC). By nerfing escalation chances you effectively nerf EVERY module that comes from those escalations not just the BPC you are attempting to nerf.


    Heaven forbid X-Type hardeners be an actual expense rather than an afterthought.

  • [Summer] Pirate Battleship Cost Intervention in EVE Technology and Research Center

    A simple increase in materials will do quite a bit to solve The Machariel problem, assuming balance changes are off the table. I'm not so sure BPC drop rates are going to do much, but there's no reason not to make them more rare.

    Can you show a graph of player count or fun over time in eve?


    this, like most of the other graphs out there, would have to be by region, and would have delve dominating as usual

  • [June] Nullsec Asteroid Cluster and Excavator Drone changes in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Eh, yeah, I figured it was coming. The May MER should be interesting.

    It seems like we could probably save both our time and your time by meeting you guys halfway. What's the maximum amount per day we should be permitted to mine?

  • [119.6] Standup Thukker Capital Component rigs in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Does the Thukker rig have 100 calibration (T1) or 150 calibration (T2)?

  • Monthly Economic Report - April 2017 in EVE Information Center

    The bonus graph is missing the porpoise. Or, perhaps, no one tried to mine in it?

    I was going to use the data there to build a case for buffing the yield of the porpoise a bit, as it is underperforming compared to the original vision as a miner equivalent to barges (in terms of m^3 mined.)

  • The CSM – Council of Sov. Management. in EVE Communication Center

    If you think highsec ganking is easier now, let me tell you about getting 5+ barge kills in a single smartbombing run. Consistently. Barge/exhumer EHP has been radically increased since the good ol' days.

    If you want player feedback that is not affected by the big alliances, then why not make it where a CSM can not be in or affiliated with any big alliance.

    There are Pro's and Con's with this.

    Pro : You get more feedback from the little guys.

    Con : There would be a lot of bribes flying around.

    I am not a wizard at this, shoot..... I know nothing about it, but it is just my opinion on that matter.


    We'd just run false-flag characters, or spread out among multiple alliances below the cap.

    i normally use "neanderthrashings" in jest but i think it might actually be accurate here

    null sec empires are the safer places of eve.
    that's a fact.

    so safe that people rat in titans/supers!
    then obviously get dropped cuz they suck and don't watch intel/local ehehheheheheheheheheh

    None of these neanderthrashings have anything to do with intel or blues.

    Have you ever lived in LS? It doesn't have massive intel networks that are in sov null. It's rare to find a group of 15+ systems with ONLY blues.

    I get why you wouldn't understand. Your killboard says you're one of the most risk averse people in the game.


    You didn't say anything about blues. You said local chat makes you 100% safe in all circumstances.

    If you don't have enough blues, that's your problem. If you don't have a "massive intel network," that's also your problem. Nullsec doesn't have a special property that uniquely allows for intel or blues, when compared to lowsec.

    So in your previous posts, you claimed that I should move my alts to nullsec, so I would have to endure risk. However, in this post, you claim that there is no risk in 0.0. Which is it?


    I'd have you move to LS or WHs personally, if you actually want a challenge. I can break it down for you though.

    HS NPC corps (or one man HS corps) are the least risky. These aren't mains for 90% of people, they are alts, we both know this, and know that's why I said what I did.
    sov null alliances are next.
    HS in a corp comes after that.

    Did people in SMA actually identify as goons? Dear god.

    So tell me why a part of space that's 100% safe 100% of the time as long as someone is watching local chat should get a bigger representation in CSM? The biggest carebears in the game get the most representation? That seems off to me.

    I enjoy danger in the game, and like to reward people who feel the same way. That's a core part of EVE. There's little danger in sov null ATM. Less CSM representation from sov null would go a long way.

    What's stopping you from doing your shopping and production in null now? If you want to live in null, live in null. Take a few risks for once. Why are people in 0.0 always the ones who refuse to take any risk in game? That's our problem here.


    Inertia.

    I understand that it may be troubling for some of you to become fully aware of just how alone you are, but it's better to come to terms with it in a safe environment, like this thread, rather than under adversity later.

    Keep setting up these little glass vignettes, I'll keep smashing them.


    Because 0.0 alts can do the same job as NPC corp HS alts?
