Our group already corrected our fits for the buffs, so we’re not too bitter whether the changes remain or get fixed. Mostly, we’re fed up with CCP messing around with these missions without mentioning anything in the patch notes and when we lose ships because of that it’s just the worst.
Of course, the buffs don’t really add anything to the gameplay either. If anything, they take away from what makes burners interesting by further limiting the number of options you can use to run them. Now if you’re not using specific ships/fits with excellent/maxed skills, you are probably SOOL.
Edit: Also, the Burner Cruor was buffed from 9000 armor HP to like 13000 armor HP. How the flying *&$^ do you even get a FRIGATE to over 10k armor HP?? That’s more than some BATTLECRUISER rats!
