And it would still be the most versatile BC in the game without being OP by 50000 miles. CCP, please make this so.

The myrm indeed needs to be able to actually use 5 heavies again to even be useful. Medium drones don't cut it. Give it 125 bandwidth and 150 or 175 drone bay and it will be feared in the same way as the hurricane, harbinger, and drake without being overpowered.

Yeah… Drake-level tank + 750 DPS isn't over the top at all and actually puts it on par with the Drake…

That would still be the übermyrm, but with a slightly different fit.

Still, at that point, Naga. Twisted

I believe an Oracle would out-damage a Naga at that distance.

To be a bit more fair, how much dps is any myrm (current or proposed unnerfed) doing out to or even past warp disruptor range... Sad

Never seen sentries used in pvp, i guess it's possible, unless you're talking about pve, in which case what the hell are we talking about pve for?

The "drake lvl tank" is niche active rep that's extremely vulnerable to neut and increasing worthless as blob size grows.

The "750 dps" is at short range with unbonused guns with most of it being drones that get killed, that is, if you remove dual/trip rep tank to fit dmg mods to buff those unbonused gun dps.

Even with 75mbit bandwidth increased to 125, Myrm is still crap outside of very specialized niche, under specialized situations.

I really don't see anything wrong with giving taht 125mb and seventh lowslot, would actually make it rather fun. But i do say there ought to be no extra pg/cpu for the slot. And tbh, a triple repper would only rep 800 dps without implants and nor boosters and put out a measly 600 dps, which isn't all that much ;)

Or if you prefer passive, you could slap a 105k ehp tank on it ;P

Surely the Myrm's missing slot would be better off being given to the Brutix instead?

a utility high would be nice on the myrmidon, outside of that I can't see a reason to add more to it.
edit- or take one slot from the other boats. and add a mid or low to the t1 bc's...
