I still think they should be immune to bubbles.

We have the "technology" to put that on a t3 cruiser and an interceptor but not the ship whose soul purpose is running blockades?

What harm would it really do? If anything it would allow small groups to be able to more reliably operate in 0.0 where now they don't bother.

What good is it to ninja mine in the new t2 mining frig if I have no way of hauling the materials out of 0.0?

Any real miner that uses the t2 ships is going to be covert bridging them selvs around any way \0/ love the new high slots going to be really useful for covert cynos

Now that's an idea, a T2 transport like the Miasos, with a large ore bay...

Of course, it would also be able to carry quite a lot of -compressed- ore, if so.... and be covert bridged. Though any real need for minerals probably involves jump-freighters worth.

Ok thanks for getting rid of the useless active tanking bonuses.

However, I'm still somewhat miffed at the slot layout differential. Amarr gets lots of lowslots but much less base cargo m3. This assures that it must fill those slots with cargo expanders in order to compete with the hauling capacity of the Caldari BR. Conversely the caldari BR is getting more shield resist tanking, single or double propulsion, or ewar options to save itself with if it doesn't get the cloak activated in time.

Can't you just acknowledge that this class of ships have a role which is independent of racial tanking predilections and slot layout ? A military that would fail to design its ships for their role simply would not last long (Amarr). Please rethink this.

Easily fixed by implementing stacking penalty on cargo expanders, and adjusting base cargoholds as well as module bonuses to have similar max cargoholds to before.

That way haulers with a lot of low slots still only want to fit 2-4 expanders (some can be supplemented with rigs, too), and thus will have room for low slot tank mods.
