if you actually took time to look at the link i first posted instead assuming they were all km whoring bomber fleets you would see they are not.

now lets see your polarized 900dps solo bombers killmails

I did... smartbombing, pos bashes, and the gank fleets... not really surprised...

As if my bomber is used for solo lol... i might as well ask to see your fleet fit blop go solo

i would quite happily fly my fleet fit blops solo because the fit has everything a solo blops would have, you have been told they are gank ships anyway hense the name "black ops".

but that is the point my blops can be used in a fleet and solo, your bomber will just die horribly to anything it engages. so a blops is not useless.

anyway no point arguing as this is going nowhere, you stick to bombers, im quite happy with my panther

Pfft you joking i use the right tool for the job... i have my panther too for fleet work. Or that bomber if we have enough blops.
Il also use more effective ships that dont cost a bil to roam around in. (or at least more effective ships that do)

I can use all Blops, with jump skills at 5, blops at 5, etc, etc.

They need some loving either through a boost to their stats, or a complete overhaul of their bonus abilities. Redeemer is pretty much the only one that could be considered semi-combat capable, and it lacks in a horrible way. It is not a ship I would ever consider taking out of the station without a fleet. They just don't feel like the type of ship they should by any standard. The cost of the hull, the time it takes to train one up, the time it takes to get the skills to a point where it is viable to use them, etc. They are lacking in a bad way. D-scan immunity would go a very long way to help them out.


They are like a prostitute without a phallic item inside of them, something is just missing...

did you even look at the character i linked on zkill? Solo blops (with hunter loki alt) is almost all he does.

T2 resists would be nice on a BLOPS BS.

That's why you drop shitton of easy to train and replace bombers that do similar DPS each instead of using BLOPs on field. The latter is inferior choice, hence it may be considered "weak".

The point is not to make it strictly powerful, but to provide reasons to use it beyond lacking friends to gang up with and gank someone in the middle of nowhere.

people keep sayin they need loving but what is actually wrong with blops that they need loving? as i say i have no issues using my panther and every alliance i have been in have used them whenever possible, no point in t2 resists, cov ops cloaks or dscan immunity so i see nothing to really improve on that wouldnt make blops "op"

So it seems like the entire ship tier rebalancing has hit a stale mate on all accounts (minus a few tweaks here and there i.e. Ishtar taking a stick up the pooper).... I am just wondering if CCP had any intentions of getting back to rebalancing all tiers, and finally giving the BLOPS class some much needed attention?

Any info would be much appreciated.



Given the cocnept of blops, I thikn it is better for them to finish the new SOV mechanics first. Then they will have a static target to aim on a tool that can be used effectively on that context.

Well, they could be a bit less absurdly hard to fit :P Some 10% cpu for everyone would be great :P

really? ive never had cpu issues on my blops and it has everything it needs, bearing in mind i feel a blops should have as much faction mods as possible so maybe this helps with cpu issues?

It was long ago, but I remember when CCP increased the CPU of the mega because "A ship should be always possible to fit with T1 and T2 modules and never absolutely require faction modules for a basic fit".

Basic fit, as in base or foundation. On a redeemer, 2 plates, 2 heat sinks, dcu and two platings are your *basic fit*, fyi. Roll

but if you are fitting t1 modules to a blops then you are probably too poor to fly it and doing it all wrong
