Been looking for a long time what people says about balance … Seems that players dont really care about pity
PVP balance in eve. This meta of t3d-t2 assault frigs and capitals led any interaction in pvp to camp or 100% gay-wins when you’re overblobbing anything. If small ships maybe “fine” and you can find countermeasures
it can be killed by some types of cruisers, most of ships(BS most) lack any defense vs them in small scale fleets - in comparison capitals, each second player already having capital ship and can drop it anytime anywhere and without fleet you cant do anything or having simillar ship size(1 for sure wont do much), null sec is dead(for grinding only) , Fractional Wars became bloodbath for newbs or grinding site again … What i suggest is simple do not let Capital ships enter Low sec (except rorqual, orca, freighters and portal drop from titans) make it “Freedom fight” site, change FW - do not let players change their faction for estimated time , lets say 1 year or more… Without capitals it will make fights more dynamic, will make capsuleers try other ship types. It will create some space for newbs, also change plexes (maybe restrict how many players can enter site from each faction and neutral side).
Also great part which is dead today RP , but dead balance not letting players to interact with each other in proper way to role play. First of all change PVP balance …
No idea if CCP really interested anymore in their project, there are billions of ways how to improve EVE online and they can earn from it.
