Tempest still need love.
7 gun (+1) remove a mid for a low to make a real gunboat like huricane or rupy, could be a good idea.

So eerm. The typhoon. Capless weapons, utility neut, extra meds for target painters and webs so it can hit ships of all sizes and a capless armour tank? Did you think about that perhaps being a tiny wee bit overpowered?

EDIT: Also why have you increased the cap given the reduced cap it will need and the greater ability it will have to fit cap boosters? Really? It's powerful enough already, I can see only a gang fit with ECM or overwhelming numbers taking one of those down What?

Please consider doing this given what is happening to the Mega.

Thx to put in another Caldari boat in the proud Minmatar fleet,after cyclone now the phoon , it's a shame this times to be a Minmatar Pilot Sad

Thx to CCP which permit such a change in the ship storyline from matar
- steal us a turret point on the Nagl as Minmatar would have no more resources for more
- steal us the turrets on the old Cyclone ship and stick us this wretched Caldari launcher in our ship
- steal us our last bastion aginst low skill pilots and move the proud phoon into the Caldari ship series.

What's next,give us a Amaar hooded sweater or the strange Navy Caldari parting in our hair Roll

There's a bad summer for Mataris!

Too bad all of these ships are currently cost-prohibitive to me. I would like a +5% increase per level to insurance payout or -5% decrease in cost per level bonus on each one as well.

Also, it might be too OP or not viable, but how about a dedicated fleet ship. i.e. a bonus to remote reps received or given. We need more hulls Pirate

Mate, you live in nullsec. Go run some hubs and you'll be able to afford one in a couple of hours tops.

I'm curious how you justify nerfing the Tempest and Typhoon that hard?

Ed: Also, the new Typhoon 100% obsoletes the old Raven for mission running. Not that I ever run missions, but it's still something worth considering. :)

I'm an idiot, don't mind me.

Minding that the dps of most other battleships is pretty crappy too Im a bigger fan of another low, remember you can fit a gyro in that low increasing your dps almost as much as another gun at least on armor fits.

Mate, you live in nullsec. Go run some hubs and you'll be able to afford one in a couple of hours tops.

Actually highsec lvl 4s are on par with hubs

Perhaps this has been covered 100x elsewhere, but what's wrong with giving ships with split weapon systems 3 bonuses?

Eg, take the classic versatile-but-hard-to-skill 'phoon and give it +ROF to torp/cruise, +ROF to large projectile, and add say a +agility (heh, or something better) as a third bonus.

If that looks like too much of a bittervet bonus (cuz need to skill two large weapon systems), drop a high.

Aren't split weapons bad (mostly) because they chew up both bonuses?

Seems like they can be a lot of fun and aren't intrinsically evil.

This. Minmatar ships are supposed to be smaller then the sig resolution of same class weapons. Thi seems to be getting thrown out as we go along.

I think you're grossly overstating how effective cruise missiles and torps really are. I guess we'll see how useful the Phoon will be after the apparent second look at torps/cruise.

That is a huge part of why the Tempest has been "such a survivor", IMO. That nerf is just... amazingly harsh.

QFT

Sarcsam on: what is wrong with you do you expect caldari pilots to actually train for guns if they want to fly phoon you do understand that that require time and skills,what about F1 do yo understand how hard that is!!do you do you !!

You choke behind a smile a fake behind the fear

The mega is now designed to become a shield/DPS big boat, like a big talos. Maybe not a great idea, but i'am ont his thread to speak about minmatar boat, and when i see the epic new typhoon, i find the tempest more crap than before, and god, it was already crap. So making it a REAL gunboat armor, (maybe whith short powergrid or cpu to not be able to fit bigger gun too easy, or very small drone bay for the balance) could be a good idea.
