  • Jump Bridges and Titan Bridges to alliance use only. in Council of Stellar Management

    If you read the plan there was a planned hard cap on alliance size too, tho im still bit on fence about it.

    I would really like to know why is the idea so stupid, since i really dont see allmost any downsides to it.


    Even if a large alliance doesn't consolidate, all you've really done is annoy them. They've got the titans already in place to work around it, plus the capital resources to produce more if needed. Smaller groups, on the other hand, ones that don't have an X year advantage in building up their Titan fleets, they're the ones going to be hurt by this, since they'll either be forced to consolidate (which sucks and removes a lot of potential individuality from the game), or if your cap is too small for them, be forced to acquire that many more titans. Makes the barrier for even hoping to gain something that much higher, all the while only annoying larger blocs.

    It also ignores the actual issues with force projection - namely that the ranges are high, the fuel costs aren't all that high, and the entire game can be transversed in minutes (Dek to Delve Trail of Tears notwithstanding). This doesn't actually alter that fact, it just adds an organizational aspect that large powers already have the resources to work around easily.

    tl;dr it sucks because it doesn't actually change things, it just annoys people

    Small entities could still enjoy all the Blops fun they can get theyr hands on, it just would make it harder for big coalitions to move massive amounts of players around.


    You replaced "harder" with "slightly more irritating", assuming they don't just consolidate into one large alliance to instantly nullify this stupid, stupid idea.

    ahahahaaha yeah, that was Fozzie (aka former PL) showing his ~true colours~ and not at all rustling his former CEO's jimmies. Good catch Mario!!!! Just don't' read the rest of the conversation on that link or anything. It's a bit too reasonable and not at all the same thing.

  • [Rubicon 1.3] Drone Assist change in EVE Technology and Research Center

    i'm honestly not that bothered about them removing drone assist or not; i've made that clear on many occasions. however trying to attribute the mass use of drones to a 10 year old mechanic that hasn't been changed rather than to the buff that drone ships have received is amusing.


    It's both, sort of a perfect storm thing. Drone ships get buffed, sentries become a doable thing, drone assist pushes it into the stratosphere by doing 2 things: allowing carriers to use them and avoid any traditional downsides they would have (lock time etc), and making it simple enough so that even the dumbest fleet of mouthbreathers can make very good use of it.

    CCP's decided that altering assist is the best way of tackling the problem, at least for now (and in the case of carriers, it's p. much the right move). Whether it's right or wrong or enough, time will tell I guess? I'm sure some sentry concepts will still eat **** alive, but whether or not they'll be workable enough for a pile of idiots to turn into a critical mass problem is something else entirely.

    blaming drone assist for drone proliferation is still laughable, though..


    CCP doesn't agree with you. Maybe try convincing them? Or don't w/e this thread is **** anyway.

    sorry which change made drones easier to command than any other weapon system?


    Assist, you know, the one that changed that you've got a problem with because it literally will adversely affect an incursion fleet's isk/hr.

    Yea, im sure its got nothing to do with A) CFC ordering its pilots to use drone assign so much that CCP has no choice but to fix it


    If it actually took some level of skill and input to use it, do you think the CFC (or any large entity for that matter) would have able to pull off any success with it?
