NERF the Rorqual

(Okiro Sabat) #1

There is no way a Rorqual should be able to plex 20 accounts. NERF the rorqual. It’s bringing way too many Alts to the game, and making it unfun

(Rivr Luzade) #2

Alts aren’t the problem. - these are also alts but they can be engaged and destroyed. Rorquals on the other hand are nigh invulnerable in many circumstances. All you need to do to fix Rorquals is to limit them to 1 around 1000 km around an asteroid. If there is already a Rorqual near an asteroid, any other cannot activate the Indu Core or Panic.

Most rorquals make anywhere from 80 to 100 mill an hour.

That’s about the same as hisec incursions.

Super ratting makes 200 mill an hour.

I guess if you rorqual mine 24/7 you could plex 20 accounts, but who does that? Pretty much an admission of botting if you do that.

…for like 5 minutes, then as vulnerable as any other capital ship.

Incursions does not spawn after every downtime in front of your citadel so you can farm until your face melts off.

Nor do you need to make 40 60 ppl to agree to travel all over high sec to establish continuous farm.

Yes null sec bots supported by alliances are a thing.

(Solonius Rex) #6

Nor is your farming hindered by a single cloaky camper in system, unless you have a backup of 40 people in far, far more expensive ships.

Nor is your ship 10 times more expensive than an incursion ship.

Nor do you have to scan down wormholes.

Yes Null sec has its own risks and costs.

Telltale story of “can you just leave me alone Rorkual” solo farming in most dangerous part of space,inane levels of isk and some risk.

(Solonius Rex) #8

I wouldn’t consider 100 mill an hour as insane, unless you’re willing to say that incursions are insane levels of isk and near-zero risk.

Super ratting does not make 200m per hour, it makes around 330m per hour! :wink:

what i is see is… rorqual is more and more useless to earn isk. a full fitted rorqual cost around 7-10billion and bring you 90-120million / h. a carrier costs maybe 2billion and bring you the same isk / h…
now a little bit conspiracy:

“looks like… goonsswarm people working as developers. they mined now for future enough and now they nerf and start attack^^”

(Solonius Rex) #14

What a ludicrous idea. You can never have enough Titans.

(Sepheir Sepheron) #15

These numbers are so silly to me… I mean… why is anyone super ratting when they can burner blitz in HS for same money? Supers can’t possibly be making only 200m/h

(BPBankogirl LSG) #16

Remove local from null sectors.

(Solonius Rex) #17

Blitzing burners is fine, but you have to cycle through a lot and sometimes you cant get a good chain.

(Solonius Rex) #18

Remove local from Hisec too.

(Sepheir Sepheron) #19

Have you tried it? You might have to do a ■■■■ mission once every 20hrs just to keep agent above -2

(Solonius Rex) #20

I have, and its more than one mission every 20 hours, not unless you want to go at it for a while. I burned a couple agents because their standings went below the threshold with me, even though my Caldari empire standing is like 8.0.
