Good EVEning, fellow capsuleers!
I require the community’s help in reaching out to a capsuleer who is failing to see the error of his ways. @Geo_Eclipse_Oksaras, who will henceforth be referred to as Anonymous to protect his privacy and shield him from public humiliation, is doing low level PVE in a… I can’t bear to say this… an active-tanked Cruise Raven (with deadspace shield boosters, no less). That’s right. He’s active tanking a ship with an operational range of 200km that pretty much never gets touched after MWDing out far beyond the range of 99% of rats encountered in low-level PVE (using an initial MJD if necessary to escape a killing field and keep shields from breaking).
I’ve tried explaining to him that a Cruise Raven doing low level PVE requires a grand total of zero defense modules provided it has both an MWD and a MJD since range alone will keep virtually all rats from touching him (the few that can touch him at that range would simply be prioritized) - even with the lowest possible skills needed to fly such a fit he would be safe - but Anonymous will not listen to reason! I mean sure, if it were using RHMLs or Torpedoes then tanking could be (somewhat) justified but… cruise missiles? On a range-bonused hull, no less? He’s crazy! He needs help! He needs intervention!
Please, EVE Forums, help me help Anonymous!
