The "Wrong" way to fly? Need Suggestions

I would suggest a hyperion over a megathron as well. It even says so on the side of the package.

Dimitryy, just out of curiosity, does it have 25s in the Cap Booster intentionally?


no that would be a mistake - the 2 reps will burn a cap 800 in a single cycle. 25s are fairly meaningless for battleship cap economies, won't burn fast enough.

It looks like a blitz fit to me, as I would seek a 4th resist piece to get better effective hps repped (after resists) per cargo of cap booster, and not worry so much about burst rep. if the pilot is say shooting triggers, ignoring irrelevents to get objective and leave though, this fit is probably the best to use.



EFT warrior didn't pay close enough attention to charges fitted.

Perfection is a dish best served like wasabi .

So I took upon myself a challenge to fly Level 1 to Level 4 missions in nothing but Gallente Blaster Boats. It started with an Incursus (which was later upgraded to a Catalyst), then moved onto a MWD Thorax, and is presently a MWD, Cap Booster fit Brutix, found here:

I'm having an absolute blast using blasters and webs for close-range fighting. It's quick, it's intense, it requires active monitoring of everything to get it done right, and I love it. It might not be as effective as a Myrmidon, but I feel it's certainly more fun.

I've run into an issue, however. The next boat on the chain is the Megathron (and a Navy Mega at some point, but first things first). I've toyed around with some fittings and finding one huge problem. The Megathron doesn't have the CPU required to fit a full T2 fit of Neutron Blasters with a Heavy Cap Booster, MWD, two Stasis Webs, full tank, and two mag stabs. I was barely able to get it to fit in EVE HQ's fitting tool using Ions and four Faction mods!

My question is, is Battlecruiser really the end of the line for flying something unorthodox? Do I have to actually fit the Cap Rechargers (which I'm loathe to do after learning the glory and awesome that are Cap Boosters) just to get a fully effective ship? Or is there another hull you guys recommend that gives you some wiggle room on what you can fit to it and still stay effective?

Any and every recommendation on doing things "wrong" is welcome!


You can make a Proteus work with MWD, a recharger, and a large battery, 6x of the biggest medium blaster II. It's cap stable without using the rigs. Depending on your tracking mods/subsystems, you can push .3 rad/sec tracking which is more than enough to hit unwebbed targets. It's also cap stable with the MWD on.

That's just disgusting.

... I must have one.

Tradition defines and shapes a person, but should be evaluated frequently; far too often does Tradition no longer help, but hobble a person and stunt their growth. Especially a Capsuleer.
