“Only Fly What you can Afford”.
What a load of codswallop.
I wonder how many times you hear this phrase repeated in these forums by players whom indulge in alliance warfare with multiple Erebus, Avatar and even faction super class vessels such as the Revenant.
Despite their calls to the contrary, do you really believe that all but the richest coalitions can afford to replace this type of hardware repeatedly?
Do you think the coalition that will inevitably build the first Palatine Keepstar will be able to afford to replace it?. There isn’t enough mineral content on the Jita Market to actually build the thing.
I’m sure there will be many who try to slate this, but bear in mind that circle of two had a trillion ISK stolen violently from their alliance wallet…
Do you realise that only replaces ten well fitted titan class vessels? In an alliance of thousands of players?
The sentiment applies perhaps to smaller ships, but there is little reward without risk is much better suited.
Taking out a ship that you can’t afford is of course a risk, but the idea that you shouldn’t do it is perhaps short sighted.
