Meh, it’s demonstrably fine. The big groups will adapt quickly, the smaller groups have always gotten fuckered harder anyway, and it does solve more problems than it creates.

Boy do i love this. Low sec solo pvp is back - take my money CCP.

Ok, CCP, seriously, you’re not wrong, Cynos are a problem, I’ve proposed in the past other ways to deal with these, this is, at best ham-fisted, at worst, a disgusting ploy to sell injectors. Look at things like distance-based time to jump, or using the cyno ship to fuel the jump instead of the thing with the jump drive as alternatives that provide meaningful counterplay (Keeping a cyno on field longer for longer range support and making it so that large jump-ing can only be handled by DSTs and the like).

What on earth are you doing here? I can fly those ships, and this seems silly and pointless. Big groups can have plenty of these people, but in smaller groups you’re already clawing to get a newbro into a cyno and teach them to use it right, let alone having to sacrfice between 10% and 20% of the strength you can field as now capital pilots will instead end up being the ones lighting the cynos.

Edit: I wrote a better way: A real fix for Cynos and Jumping

This is a massive swing and a miss from me.

  • Alliance Logistics just becomes even more of a pain.
  • Rorqs which CCP pushed for us to train into massively become the biggest liability in the game
  • Supers and Titans become fancy furniture as you cant use them due to bumping and then being way out of fax range

Where is the good in this? You want to bring a cyno on the fleet with you just in case? Just pop the recons in the fleet. Now they cant cyno in backup.

This just screams of throwing darts at a dartboard and going with whatever it says.

Sure, but again they aren’t required to, the CSM isn’t there to to have every single idea run past them

No, you elected a CSM to have a voice in certain matters, not so that you could have a seat in every single design meeting that takes place lol

Why not do some real work and make a class of ship just for cynos, make it same requirements or whatever, but make a really cool portal class.

How is the Rorqual not a PvP ship if it is capable of tanking entire fleets and becoming invulnerable for several minutes?

So glad I quit this game when you started the downhill slide with the drifters.

I strongly disagree. What is best for the game is creating new content with counter-play to keep veterans and new players alike interested in this old game. This will cause mass unsubscriptions and further alienate people (like myself) who have been playing this game for years.

Yes I get it that Rorqs and Supercaps are isk faucets and that is bad for the game, but I (and people smarter than I) could list 1000x different, non-lazy ways to make it more risky for PVE in null-sec and cyno/umbrellas. This is another example of CCPs laziness as they throw pasta against the wall to see what sticks.

It’s obvious that CCP doesn’t actually care about the casual EVE player. They are simply trying to create chaos, hoping that will create controversy/activity in order to hit their $$$ bonuses from their Korean corporate overlords.
