Blood Raider Covenant Ships

I'm just putting an idea over to CCP and the Eve online Players.

I'm just thinking for only the Blood Raider ship line only, can we put in a role bonus of 50% power grid reduction to the Nosferatu and Neutralizer mods only.

To not to make it OP put the bonus to Cruor 50% reduction to small Nosferatu and Neutralizer.
50% reduction in power grid to Meduim Nosferatu and Neutralizer for the Ashimmu.
Plus the Bhaalgorn 50% reduction in power grid and so on.

It will make for interesting fits for a Nosferatu and Neutralizer fit for the Cruor and Ashimmu for a buffer tank / Active tank since fittings are tight with these mods on.

Bhaalgorn can fit a nice active and buffer tank full neut and dps fits, but the bonus will benefit more the frig and cruiser line the most.

What do you guys think?
Be kind now , I'm just throwing idea's out there

Extrapolate more. What effect would this have? How would players attempt to take advantage of it, and how would it affect balance?

This really isn't needed and it would be pretty horribly imbalanced. It's already possible to put a full rack of Heavy Neuts on a Bhaalgorn, so something like this would just let you equip stupid amounts of tank as well as massive neuting power.

The Frigate and Cruiser don't need the bonus either since smaller ships are already more vulnerable to neuting, neuts are quite powerful, and all three ships are already not sacrificing DPS for their neuts.

my thoughts on this would instead of buffing the bhaal (because everyone knows they are baller) buff the cruor and the ashimmu, just so they can fight a 1600 on a semi standard buffer fit without needing PG rigs, and i thought about this by reducing the PG need of medium Neut and Nos by between 15-25% and CPU cost by 15%, just on those ships though

edit, with heavy pulse lazers MWD and medium booster

Exactly what Hakiri Saisima posted

You can at least put Heavy Pulse laser on a Ashimmu and have 1600mn plate on it without a power grid rig to fit it.
Same goes with a full neut fit as will.

Heavy Pulse Laser you can get a 550 Dps with a 58K tank if you don't need a rig slot for power grid. Plus full neut fit gets 58k tank with a normal T2 fit as long as you don't need a power grid rig to fit it. At the moment you only get 50k tank.

It will make the lowest DPS Pirate Faction Ship nice to fly with good to ok damage for a Buffer tank.

Traditionally, neuting ships have low dps and low tank because they're technically ewar platforms.

Ewar platforms are meant to be squishy because they're about controlling the grid.

You can also go this way with the Cruor and the Ashimmu to help boost there uses.

Same bonus but instead of the Neut or the Nos go for 50% power grid reduction to Energy Laser.

Small for the Cruor and Medium for the Ashimmu.

The Bhaalgorn doesn't need this bonus or does the New Capitals.

Just the Cruor and the Ashimmu.

Or just the Neut or Nos 50% power grid reduction for the Cruor and Ashimmu only.

The other Blood Raiders Ships don't need it.

Or we can just increase power grid on them 2 ship will work to, since all the problems with them 2 ships is mostly power grid are high.

But feel free to shoot me down with my thoughts on them.

Just putting my voice down towards a game I enjoy playing.

Just hoping to get this fit going for this, It will make this ship more popular and raise the price of it more towards the other Pirate Ships.

What do you think?
It's a 60k tank and 550 Dps with this fit.
If CCP will give us more power grid for this ship.

Just a thought.
