So. The Enforcer.
You open up the ship info and you see this.
Now that looks pretty good especially that last part on the tank so I got one and tried fitting it and discovered some problems.
So what where these problems?
1- Low dps. But then you say “but it’s a recon”.
2- Low tank. But again you say "it’s a recon"
3- It’s slow. Ok that’s not a recon trait but it still sucks.
So you may ask what is my problem with the ship? It seems pretty normal for a recon apart from being a tad slow.
Well what does it do well? Nothing! Other recons eg my Pilgrim does 200dps 30 less than I could get out of the Enforcer and has almost the same tank as the Enforcer.
But my Pilgrim. It will make sure you have no capacitor at all. where as the enforcer just sits there doing ■■■■ dps and has the tank of a wet paper bag.
My dual asb Rook has a higher burst tank than the Enforcer and does more dps with Rapid light’s plus the fact that the ecm means the target likely wont even be shooting back.
Now it does have a semi good tackle bonus’s so it can point out to 36km with a faction long point and web to 22km with faction web plus 13km with faction scram (all cold numbers) so that is all good but lets just put that to the side and call it a bonus for it being a rarer faction recon.
What I would propose is a change to the ship’s stats.
Option 1. Increase dps & speed.
This option would increase the speed of the ship from 1200m/s with dead space mwd to around 1600-1800m/s and would increase the dps to be on par with other H.A.C’s thus making it a bit of a glass cannon for kiting or in your face gank and run.
Option 2. Increase dps & tank.
This option would pretty much put it’s dps and tank on par with H.A.C’s though it would still be slow compared to H.A.C’s it would make it good in a brawl giving it a unique role as a recon as no other recons can really do that though it’s slow speed would still be an obvious factor.
So. What do you guys think about the ship?
Let me know about what you would change or what you think of my idea.
