[CCP Clarification] We will make capitals awesome again
« on: March 25, 2015, 04:03:58 PM »
Quote from: CCP Turtlepower

Reading from patch notes:

Fighters can no longer be assigned to other pilots. The ‘Delegate Control’ option has been removed and replaced by ‘Assist’ and ‘Defend’, same as other drones.


It seems "Assist and Defend" doesn't  appears  in game for fighters ....
Is this a bug or devs decision?

You are looking at an old version of the patch notes, we have also removed the Assist and Defend options. Capital ships will be re-balanced later this year, we will make them awesome again!

Isn't this like spending 1 mill on a Ferrari, which is later forcefully recalled and being redone into a Dacia Sandero?

Essentially, yes and some owners are pissed because of it.
It was broken and things like this (and supers in general) ruined the game, tbh. So had to be done if the game is to have a future. People are divided cleanly along the lines of self interest / care about having a fun game.

It should be noted that the largest owner of them (PL) is in favour of the change.

Maybe make sub-capitals more effective against capitals then. Like the long proposed mini-dreadnaught.

nope. The idea is to make capitals more awesome. To do that you need to improve them. I suggest giving them weapons that broadcast Chicken on a Raft to anyone targetted so they dance themselves to death. For Titans, bring back the old AOE effect and have it broadcast, on a loop, for everyone on grid.

 ??? Why not just make fighter delegation an on-grid thing only?

I have an idea!  Why not give super ships the ability to broadcast mos.jpg to everyone in the grid?

CCP introduces balancing on the fly

Quote
CSM members were quick to praise CCP for their decisive action. "CCP Rise gave me a cookie and it was pretty good" said one member, while another was quoted as saying, "I'm glad that CCP was so quick to nerf what could have been a dangerously unbeatable fleet doctrine. Nobody ever in the history of Eve has been able to defeat sentry-wielding carriers through any means whatsoever, but now the menace has been brought back in line".
Hahahaha, that site is awesome :D

also

Quote
Meanwhile in N3 DARKNESS. and The Kadeshi members have been advised to train Advanced Docking to a minimum of level 3 and preferably to level 5 in preparation for the war. The leaders of said alliances have reportedly been spotted lying down by the side of the road in a bid to make it as difficult as possible for them to be thrown under an approaching bus.
Pure gold ;)
