Nerfing is not fixing. Fixing means making them undock soon. One more fix on the Rorqual, and I am going to starting buying Rorqual cheap and reprocessing them into raw materials.

I don't understand why you are putting the Rorqual in the same category than combat capital.

So, capitals (Carriers, Force Auxillaries, Dreads, Rorqual) can dock in the Large citadel (Fortizar), but for the new Engineering Complexes are restricted and can only dock in the X-Large variant.

Is there a reason they can dock in a large for standard citadels, but cannot in the engineering complexes?

The Rorqual is an industrial force auxiliary, a combat capital. Of course it should be grouped with other combat capitals! Why is this a question? Freighters of all kinds are in the same size class but are not combat capable, that is why they are allowed into highsec and can dock where other capital ships cannot dock.

You need to see it this way: The Rorqual is not being blocked from docking; rather freighters are receiving a free pass for docking where they reasonably should not be able to. You want to dock a Rorqual at your large complex? Why not use an Orca instead?
