If it wasn't a joke, then I overestimated your intelligence.

There are other ways to address the speed tanking. Increasing citadel cruise explosion velocity while adjusting scan res for sub APS when a dread is under siege is a start.

The missile damage formula is pretty good at mitigating damage across ship classes, so I don't know why explosion velocities are so damn low to start with.

I think they really balance it as if most ships would not use a prop mod . And make it slow enough that the fastest ships in a ship class can mitigaet some damage even without propulsion mods.


That may work on some classes, but not all ...

This thread is full of win, and pathetic creatures, guess thats what makes it win.

Just get over it that your little gallente pwn mobile got a bit more in line with the other dreads. Its still the best if you ask me.

I am inteseristed to see how the Rev changes work out, as it was kinda, meh before, its a good ship but the moros overall awesomeness was dimishing it.

Someone who can fly all dreads signing off. (best thing you can do vs balance changes btw, just get into the new flavour of the patchcycle pwnmobile and laugh about all the forum whiners)

    ok .....the citadel explosion velocity removement was needed for a long time ...since phoenix can`t do full dps to a moving titan or carrier .....tbh exp velocity should be boosted a lil bit ..to like 100-120 m / sec

    You're so cool because you can fly all dreads.

    I want you to go and write the following sentence on a chalkboard 50 times.

    "Explosion Velocity and Target Velocity do not enjoy a direct, linear relationship when calculating missile damage."

    um... yes, it does.

    There are two factors when applying initial missile damage:

    1) Explosion Velocity vs Target Velocity

    2) Explosion Radius vs Signature Radius

    Aaand I think that covers why the current dread class 'balance'.... isn't. Something needed to be done.

    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    So it was. Lol

    Oh well. The point is that the excess signature modifies the explosion radius, such that a ship with a planet-sized sig has to go at silly speeds to mitigate damage.

    The phoenix was barely buffed and still has the same issues that it did even after the buff. It continues to be the absolute worst dread by far.

    CCP version of feedback thread is hey...We are changing sh!t..Give us feedback. Then they dont respond and put changes through anyways, regardless of how bad they are.

    Should be renamed to announcement thread, because they sure dont do feedback.

    There are two factors when applying initial missile damage:

    1) Explosion Velocity vs Target Velocity

    2) Explosion Radius vs Signature Radius


    Except in the formula, (Explosion Velocity)/(Target Velocity) is multiplied by (Sig radius/Explosion radius) and then the whole mess is raised to ln(drf)/(ln5.5), so it's not actually necessary for the missile explosion velocity to be higher than the target's velocity as long as (sig radius/explosion radius) is big enough.

    so has anybody learned that you dont vote goonswarm members for CSM yet?

    because they seem incredibly biased towards changes that afect the ships or equipment they use!!!

    So stop saying that phoenix doesn't need buffs because it does.

    With current numbers, Moros outdamaged the Revelation at all ranges, except when you went into falloff on Radio XL, basically the outermost range - with superior tracking still.

    Now if you consider a Revelation and a Moros, both with 3 range scripted tracking computers fitted:

    The Revelation loads Gamma XL, and gets 45+24km.
    The Moros loads Uranium XL, and gets 44+36km with roughly 20% DPS more.

    After the change:

    The Revelation loads Gamma XL, and gets 48+24km
    The Moros loads Uranium XL, and gets 34km+46km with roughly 20% DPS more.

    At the optimal spot of the Revelation, it still still deal a good 16-18% more DPS with *still* superior tracking.


    While it's a good step in the right direction, it's far from being a solid balancing position that we can play with.

    Ive flown with Goon many times, and would normally disregard this statement, but I kinda have to agree.
