Frigates are ruling the skies. ECM is making the ragequit as common as salt. The force is broken into pieces.... Only you can make it whole again. Please bring balance to the force!

You hope for T3D nerfs. Many of us do, but besides warp/lock times, Battleships seem pretty limited in roles relative to other ship classes.

Frigates and cruisers have their own flavors of logi and EWAR. Battleships have no bonused logi boats and only Caldari/Amarr have EWAR platforms. While I'm dubious about Target Painting or Sensor Damp bonuses, taking after secondary EWAR could make some interesting ships - point range for Gallente, web range for Minmatar.

While I'm not one to pine for battleship sized logistics (hello Nestor, I didn't forget you), I just want to put it out for discussion. I see plenty of people flying Command Destroyers for the MJFG capabilities, but Battleships don't really have something to call their own. At the heart of the matter, Battleships do nothing special, and they do it slowly.

So, what are some options for making BS special?

Hey Hyde, Hope your new home under the paymasters of PL is treating you well. Interesting choice of new corp though bud, are we trying to secure more votes having recently joined / been asked to join Pandemic Legion? Shocked

Although I may not agree with your new choice of corporation (even though its of no benefit having you in anybody's corp), I will be fully supporting your application to the CSM, as having flown with you a few times in Mind Games, I think you have a good amount to offer and hope that you will remain non-bias in your decisions and direction in the future.


Also, yes i think CCP may all be frigates......Lol

There are a lot of different ways to go about this, but I really prefer an approach that does not add to the power creep we have seen over the years. BS will be more popular when there is a "healthy food pyramid" of BCs and Cruisers below them. This is why I try to feature larger ships in my videos, since they are not popular and therefore no one flies them, and leads to this downward spiral.

As far as changes, on the conservative side i'd like to see a secondary stat buff on most BS (scan res, sensor strength, cargo capacity, ect). These small quality of life changes will help make flying BS feel a little bit better than it does right now.

If you want to talk more crazy, theoretical BS generalized weapons bonuses was an idea I was toying around with. Essentially instead of having <5% to large Projectile turret damage, you could have , <5% to Projectile turret damage>. We already see these kinds of bonuses on the Bhargest and Rattlesnake with missiles for example. This allow more flexibility in fitting for fighting smaller targets, leaving more fitting for tank/smartbombs/neuts. Its a really wild idea that I was thinking of, so take it with a serious grain of salt, but there is a lot of room for creativity here.

Love your videos and your commitment to large ship brawling. I hope you can bring back more diversity to the battlefield with more solo BC/BS fun.

Thank god you will push for a bs buff!
#56 - 2015-12-23 14:14:06 UTC

yes, yes!


A little suggestion although it may be a bit tricky to implement:

For small gang and solo PVP to discourage the blob "robots" -

Reduce or enhance ECM, neut, and jam effectiveness according to how many and the balance of opponents that are on grid! P

you only get my vote if you make a frigate only roam and stream it ;)

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

All the comments are TL:DR. I am curious though as to the validity of your stance on electronic warfare and drones of said nature?
