I really hate to suggest this, but isn’t really about time the dreaded Manticore receives a much needed nerf. It’s power is astounding for a stealth bomber. It is a flying death machine. Let me explain.
Today, I witnessed a single Manticore utterly annihalate a Navy Drake, an Ares, and a Hecate --simutaniously. The Drake, Ares, and Hecate were peacefully transiting a system when the Manticore decloaked and let loose salvo after salvo of terrifying torpedoes. He flew circles around his advasaries, as his torpedoes blasted them to smithereens. The Hecate was the first to fall. Then the Ares, which should have been able to outrun and escape the deadly Manticore, was blown from the stars. The Drake pilot held off the massive onslought of torpedoes for a short while, but eventually his ship cracked and he was podded.
CCP. The Manticore ought to be nerfed. Please
