The Huginn also only has 14 slots. So this is what we have so far:

Curse: 16
Rook: 15
Lac: 15
Huginn: 14

Seems you missed doing a slot adjusting this pass.

Combat recons should at least show up in dscan if you are on the same grid with them. Majority of Eve use dscan tools and it would be extremely frustrating to not be able to copy a certain ship type from dscan list when you can clearly see it in your own overview.

Was hoping the Arazu would be made a droneboat with at least 50mbit/100m3 dronebay and 4/7/4 slot layout

Lachesis needs damage/tracking or damage/optimal bonuses, cos optimal/tracking is great for what...swatting frigates?

Shouldn't one of the Amarr hulls should be lasers? Say damage/tracking or damage/cap use

for starters :)

Some pretty cool changes. Is it intentionally that the curse gained an extra lowslot for free (I hope it is)?

Quite literally smashing this one out of the park. The HAC tank will actually make em usable as the frontline support ships they always should have been!

I fear that the Dscan bit will be changed, but I truly hope not!

I like most of the changes, especially since it will make the ships a little more useful, but not showing up on dscan is a bit silly. That's what cloaks are for.

Very much this.

Very happy to see the tank increase as well, it was needed. The capacitor is also very welcome. Always sucks to leave your huginn behind on a long warp!

ECM still needs fixed.

  • Give Combat Recons something to make them stand out as a unique and interesting set of ships


  • Combat Recons will now be permanently undetectable by directional scanners


  • Seems to me a stronger tank or significant damage bonuses would have had the desired effect without completely changing the game with recons. I hope you guys thought about all implications this will bring.

    Arbitrary immunities are dumb everywhere they exist. They are lazy amateurish game design.

    Can someone run the numbers on the EHP once they have the HAC resist profiles? Right now they are of course paper thin.

    Undetectable by Dscan?!

    Love. It.

    Huginn could be interesting. Though couple things i want you to consider. With long webs comes the need for a weapon system that has good range. Ac huginn is laughable at 20-40km. Arty huginn could be interesting, is there enough grid for 4 arty turrets?

    Please for the love of all that is EVE, reduce fitting on small/medium arty. Or maybe give huginn a smidge more PG so its viable at range instead of being forced to get close, unlike the rest of the CRS.

    Or

    Give it double missile bonus, since heavies MIGHT actually apply their damage with a 50% TP bonus with long webs. It would be the only ship being able use heavy missiles effectively.

    Maybe double missile RoF bonus like claymore?

    Otherwise, looks like some great changes.

    I don't see how this doesn't make WH space completely unlivable for most of EVE.

    Pilgrim without its neut amount bonus? One word: Ugh.

    If you absolutely must put a range bonus on it, make it a small one and keep the amount one. Don't neuter the thing it was good at. With this change it's just a weak Curse with a cloak. Which isn't all that big a ~thing~ with the whole "invisible to d-scan" bonus that you want to give to combat recons. With these changes there'd be even fewer reasons to fly a Pilgrim than there are right now.
