Sadly, it’s an event of owners of T2, T3 and Faction Cruisers with over 500 DPS!

The frigates are fast, but without enough DPS to clear sites fastly, while BC and BS are too slow for fast grind.

We know about “22.3% (2.3T) of the ISK was generated by 1.4% of characters earning bounties, using Supercarriers”, but this looks like “60% (XX B) of the ISK was generated by 5% of characters earning goodies, using T2, T3 and Faction Cruisers”.

I got some SKINS and, most importantly, a Rogue Swarm Accelerator, but other new bros are out of the game.

Considering my 250 DPS on my Vexor, I lost like 4 sites by being “outdpsed”. Just in case, after I cleared all drone waves someone jumps to the site and one shot the last boss just to drop the yellow can. I met players which passed the site which was already cleared also.

There should been three types of sites, based on their difficulty and rewards: Ligh, Medium and Heavy.

Just a word, if you’ll see a player on a bad ship clearing the site just leave him. Play in a greedy “White/Yellow” can if both of you cleared all the waves just for who’ll get the last “white” can, a 50/50% game.


Whilst I appreciate your views, one must consider this is a contest, If one, for example, pits preschool children against professional footballers, one would expect them to score far less than those who have trained for years. There are no "Pity" wins in EVE.
No one runs these sites to lose.

I do agree with you however, There would be value, for some sites to be T1 (no pirate or faction ships) only. Whilst better players will still eat your lunch most of the time, at least the playing field would be more even, and maybe younger players will learn to fly ships that could actually win a contest (ps your Vexor is a bad choice for contesting sites, maybe try the thorax as a start?)
