read again. the main point is just about the Theme of dropping a full “police” group and yeah I never intend this ship to hit grid. also the 50% tank bonus has been stated by CCP several times to be a flavor bonus on all of the CONCORD hulls and one they intentionally made so weak that they didn’t expect many players to take advantage of it.
Also not sure if you know this but the Barghest lacks the webs and the well “suddenly Barghest” effect the Marshel has. hell even when we are just talking points the marshal outclases it. before heat and links the marshal gets 8km more range on its point unless the barghest is making some seriouse fitting sacrifices.
I’m not sure where you hate is coming from. It has the best fitting and strongest tank out of all the 5 blops its secondary stats like agi and sensors are either the best or just barely in second. aside from a few niche fits anything one blops can do the Marshal can do and normaly better. It just cost 250% more to do it.
