Astarte:[/b]
+100 Armor
  • Shifting strength between the bonuses adds an extra 1 effective turret (11, vs 10 in the initial proposal and 10.9 on TQ now).
  • Medium Hybrid damage bonus changed to 7.5% per level of Gallente BC
    Medium Hybrid RoF bonus changed to 7.5% per level of Command Ships


    Eos:
    -300 Shield
    +500 Armor
    +300 Hull

    We're moving the gang link bonuses for command ships back to the command ships skill, at 3% per level instead of the 15% role bonus.

    I recognize that a lot of people are unhappy with the existence of active repair bonuses on half of these ships, but I think that giving all command ships buffer bonuses isn't the right way to go. I believe that the four skirmish bonused command ships will all be viable for people who choose not to use the repair bonuses after this patch.


    Lovely stuff :)

    Only one thing concerns me- the speeds of Astarte and Eos, especially Eos is really very slow, and might have issues getting to brawl properly because of that. Skirmish, BS speeds...

    There is a huge gap in EHP between these two ships and Damnation, and I do understand the whines of the blobheads- when there's a differences of well over 100K EHP. However, blob PVP is a small niche in EVE and all ships shouldn't be designed for that.

    Seems to me its caldari who have been shafted in both this thread and the HAC thread.... besides the cerberus that eventually got fixed after a lot of posting and the CSM probably did the most convincing..

    And please explain why Navy BC's get more slots?????

    T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

    ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats

    Nerf web strength, Make the blaster Eagle worth using

    In this case I actually somewhat agree with this.

    It is in huge fleet fights that some of these link bonuses start to scale badly, so if CS use is a bit difficult in that situation compared to smaller scale engagements that actually has some up sides.

    Fozzie, any comments about the CPU of these ships?

    You stole 100 PG from most of the ships because you took two main damage slots away and made links only cost 100 PG each, but the cpu on those links either needs to come down as well to fit like a gun, or the ships need to be given a tad more CPU to fit those links with 5 guns like you intend. (They take +20 CPU each versus the weapons you'd fit before)

    Is the OP going to be updated to reflect the 3% per level, or was I reading that wrong?

    Are you still happy with the Damnation's dual tank bonuses and how that effectively makes the Damnation the only viable fleet command ship?


    I considered dropping the armor hp bonus from the Damnation, but in the end I think it's ok for it to have a strong identity, even if that identity makes it more popular than the others for large fleet warfare.


    All you have to do to fix the entire 'fleet ship' thing is to change the damnation bonus from electronic warfare to a skirmish bonus. If you did that no one would care how bad the Galente command ships are in fleet.

    They're crap for the niche of boosting in a fleet. The job will be taken over by brick tanked T3 even with a smaller bonus. There's no point in putting a paper tank booster on the field or else everyone in their wing is going to lose bonuses as soon as the shooting starts.

    /eos turret tracking bonus is still crap

    The eos tracking bonus is more of a misunderstanding than worthless. It's probably more of a ship that can deal with smaller ships, frigates, etc.

    It is not a alpha boat, but it is not totally screwed either if it gets tackled by a Atron.

    50/50 on it so far. It could have a more useful bonus... I could not tell you what that bonus should be though.

    Yaay!!!!

    it seems like 90% of the things we have said have been ignored and you just gave us or taken away some HP and messed around a little with bonuses that give us an extra half a turret... great listening fozzie at least rise changes stuff in his threads to things we actually want

    T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

    ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats

    CCP Fozzie, any chance of changing command processors into rigs?

    If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

    Update time!

    Nighthawk:
    +75 PWG

    Wow. Not good enough.

    Here are the respective PGs of the missile CSs:
    Damnation 1300
    Nighthawk 900
    Claymore 1100

    Still needs more PG. Though considering all the feedback that pointed this out and you still only gave it 75 more PG I suppose no one will be holding their breath. Is that why you are keeping the 5M/5L setup? Because you know it will need a low slot that adds grid? This is sloppy.

    One final note: add bonuses to RLML (or just remove the restriction to HAM and HML) to all the missile ships. Unless you are trying to keep that module off hulls larger than cruiser size - are you?

    The turret tracking bonus is at odds with the rest of the ship. The ship has bonuses that are designed for a heavy drone boat except the turret tracking bonus. It needs to have another bonus that's aligned with it's role/niche.

    I talked a little about stuff like that in the thread on links and bonuses.

    https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=3458485#post3458485

    TL:DR quite possibly.

    please nerf minnie resists they are higher than the rest of the CS and tell rise to do it in the HAC thread

    Also why does the Astarte get loads of damage bonuses but the vulture merely gets a token damage bonus????

    Oh man. That tracking bonus would be PERFECT to turn into a +10% Armor HP per level.
