PSA Before I Begin: Pyfa has an “attribute override” feature under Window menu which allows you to modify ships and items. You can modify the rifter to match the newest changes. Don’t forget to turn it on!
-1 High slot
+1 Low slot
So, I’ve been toying around with one of my favorite ships, and I know common knowledge is that this is a big nerf. It was intended as a buff, but it looks like absolute crap really. I’ve tried modified brawling fits, kiting fits, and everything in between. Losing a utility high is a huge nerf for everything but artillery fits, and those are still extremely bad. Rifter just doesn’t have the fitting power to run artillery. Either it’s low on powergrid, or the necessary modules to give it a boost use up all its cpu. Hell, even with all that the dps is dumpster tier. Like, It’s really bad.
So, perhaps I am missing something(probably not lol), but has anyone actually found a viable or even remotely useful way to leverage this new low slot? The loss of a high means you can’t run nos armor reppers anymore. Arti is still bad. Brawling is slightly weaker. It’s just sad all around.
