You mentioned about how you want any future supercaps to be more balanced, but what are your views on Titans as they currently stand?

I haven't got any practical feeling of their infamous uber-tracking, so this needs some clarification, but I'm a firm opponent of current portal and EW-immunity. My proposals on cyno will automatically fix the portal, but EW-related stuff needs some debates. For instance, they proposed to give 'em build-in warp core strength of like 30, which is way too much. 5 points for a supercarrier and 10 for Titan is probably OK, but I for one would like to see them dropping that crap altogether, since no one actually prevents you from fitting WCS's.

I personally don't care how Titans perform in blobs against each other, my main concern is that they must be actually vulnerable and thus catchable by pretty much anything. And also their use outside sov-warfare is to be brought in line with demands of the game to retain some fun. Being hot-dropped instantly without any warning and without any chance of survival surely contradicts this idea.

So,
EW invulnerability -> EW resist (at most)
Instantenious power projection -> balanced one (see cyno mechanics part)

There's nothing wrong whatsoever with Titans being jammable by Griffins. And one's ability to ruin their guns with Arbitrators will be very good for the game, too. Given there are stacking penalties, it still would be impossible to render Titans totaly crippled.

You Sir, have made my day Big smile

On another note, I think that the forum moderators are taking a bit of a liberty, removing the posts which address the candidate's outspoken views, I believe that when a person is up for public elections - he should be faced with whatever rubbish he promotes. When a candidate is up for voting, first thing i want to make sure when i vote for him - that he's a decent human being.

Also, this is probably the first place that I've seen that Fon is loosing his coolness answering, which is also extremely gratifying.
You see, it's not like eve-ru.com where you simply issue a "read-only" for a week when you're tired of arguing, here you had to degrade to "proof or get out" style Lol
This example is brought to you free of charge, you can witness a true interaction with Fon, where he doesn't have the power to moderate Smile

Dear Mr. Spitfire, sir - what is an offtopic post, when someone asks for my vote in an elections? Where, if elected, he represents me in a council of human beings vs. another group of human beings?

P.S. If anyone is interesed, I am willing to translate a speech Fon has made on the 9th May celebration, where according to his own quote, half the people hearing it branded him fascist. Speech is located on a na zi resource i wouldn't want to link here, but he linked it on eve-ru.com

No, no one's interested in you doing this, because political discussions of any kind are prohibited on these forums (and personal attacks have severe consequences).

I think you need to talk with the Community team about statements like this. We are electing a real human (which is why he gives his RL name is his CSM application) and his real life views are directly relevant to his campaign.

Hello Two step,

While CSM candidates obviously might have different real life views on various issues, the main goal of the council is to represent the players' opinions on the game, not their political stances. As such, we consider the discussions of this kind to be offtopic and detrimental to the campaign as a whole. Furthermore, I would like to remind you that political discussions of any kind are not allowed on our forums.

With that in mind, if you feel that a certain candidate should not be electable to the CSM for any reason, please file a petition to the community team explaining your position and we will pass it to CCP Xhagen and CCP Diagoras who oversee the election process.

I do hope provokers and trolls won't mind me posting some EVE-related stuff. Thanks.

Low-sec.

CCP states Incursions are awesome. I don't feel like denying that particular thought, but let's just talk about whether running Incursions is in line with other low-sec stuff. You can basically run missions, plexes and anomalies. Also you can mine and kill rats in belts. Add in PI, moon mining, hauling - and that's pretty much it.

The thing is, none of the above requires a fleet of 30-50 people in it. Everything's usually being done in very small groups, sometimes even solo. It's pretty easy for pirates to attack those and thus establish social interaction. Those pirates in turn attract third parties and it all escalates pretty good. Incursions, on the other hand, require quite a lot of people initially and - given there are multiple logistic ships as well - are very unlikely to attract something lesser than a blob, which would seem to be more suited for 0.0 roams. That's a huge contradiction - most activities are aimed for small-scale game play while Incursions require significant numbers .

I'm in no way advocating for Incursions removal, though. What I'm saying is: low-sec space needs more small-scale, casual stuff. Something easily available equally for bored pirates and carebears on their first venture out of high-sec. Something fast, which won't require probing out neither the site nor the ships within it. The latter one is a reason why adding level5 agents to each and every dead-end probably won't cut it, but still I don't see why CCP can't spread out level 5 missions across low-sec. Some areas are just plain deserted. Back in my newbie days there was a reason to go search for those empty pockets - one could mine out there. At the moment low-sec mining is a joke, thus dead-end systems are mostly of no use.

I don't see anything wrong with adding special low-sec missions for pirates (sec status below -5) alone. It sounds reasonable to introduce lesser factions - like EoM - which basically aren't present, but could become a nice alternative to regular navy forces. Give 'em a bit of new content - faction rigs, anyone? - and we'll have it basically done!

Nothing about Command Ships Fon? Somehow I expected that topic to be in your top 5.Lol

Either way you will probably get my vote as you seem to be the only candidate truly interested in the betterment of eve.


Must say that the Rebalancing of the entire rig lineup is something that has been needed and under represented for years.

As weird as it may sound, I skipped that part for a reason. CCP has already told us they are doing some mental crunching on these ships and I just don't want to propose anything before listening to them.

There are several appealing ways one can improve Command Ships and it's kind of hard to pick one without knowing the general idea of CCP on this issue. Are they buffed battlecruisers meant for assault? Are they intended to act as force multipliers?

Why do you want to completely destroy the viability of frigates (amongst other ships) by nerfing damage controls?
#98 Posted: 2012.02.25 07:32
Should we buff Damage Control then? So that frigates (amongst other ships) become even more viable.

There is always the option of leaving them the hell alone because they aren't an issue. If you feel a specific ship has a problem due to their use then you need to consider specific changes to that ship and that ship alone.

Can you elaborate on the "other ships" part please?

In which pvp scenarios of frigates vs. "other ships" will the damage control play an important part?

In my experience, you either tank a BC/HAC and kill it, or you don't and die. None of those fights are dependent on the Frigate's EHP, with the Frigate slowly bleeding away shields, armor, and structure, and managing to strike the final blow in hull. Ignoring Gallente for now.
