Finally had a chance to try it.
It’s plenty challenging. It’s plenty interesting. I like the content (as much as any other pve at least). There’s lots of eye candy.
I’m disappointed because there’s literally no reason to fly any other cruiser than what you’d normally fly for PVE. Yes you CAN fly other fits… but if you are, you’re doing it wrong. It’s PVE content, it exists to be done as efficiently as possible. Coming up with creative fits to accomplish this is no different than eating the glitter and glue and saying you’re using your bowels to craft ornaments. True, but…
The same cruisers that are king of PVE in all of Eve, are still king of PVE here. It’s boring.
I mean, your top two choices (which people can argue about endlessly) are the Ishtard and the Gila. I’d be shocked if an active tanked VNI couldn’t at least do F3s.
There’s literally no reward for coming up with exotic fits, save for the fuzzy feeling of producing said bowel ornaments. Yes, exotic fits can be made, yes they can work. But there’s no reason to fly them, they’re always sub-optimal.
