pretty much the title. been trying to analize each pirate/non empire faction to see what hasnt been tried before. here are some of what i’ve coul come up with:
1. Caldari + Minmatar:
-Caldari bonus per lvl: 10% reduction in explosion radius for missiles
-Minmatar bonus per lvl: 10% bonus to missile explosion velocity
-Role bonus: 100% bonus to missile damage, 25% bonus to missile rate of fire
a missile launching ship designed for better precision instead of better range.
2. Minmatar + Caldari:
-Minmatar bonus per lvl: 10% bonus to projectile turret falloff
-Caldari bonus per lvl: 10% bonus to projectile turret optimal range
-Role bonus: 100% bonus to projectile turret damage, 50% bonus to shield hitpoints
basically the shield version of the Navy Augoror, with some bonuses for range and falloff for autocannons or so.
3. Minmatar + Amarr:
-Minmatar bonus per lvl: 10% bonus to energy turret optimal range
-Amarr bonus per lvl: 10% reduction to energy turret activation cost
-Role bonus: 50% bonus to energy turret damage, 50% reduction to armor plate mass penalty
was thinking on a heavy plated, pulse laser oriented ship with less mobility problems.
4. Amarr + Gallente:
-Amarr bonus per lvl: 10% bonus to hybrid turret optimal range and falloff
-Gallente bonus per lvl: 20% reduction to hull repairer cycle time
-Role bonus: 50% bonus to hybrid turret damage, hull repairers equipped to this ship repair 8 times the amount
an active hull tanking ship. its niche enough. specially taking in account that hull reppers are really slow and dont heal much so the hull is designed to boost them and put them on par with armor reppers.
there were other options for this line of ship. a 50% bonus to hull hitpoints as the hull tank bonus (still niche, doesnt mess with the Hecate) and another that was focused on double armor rep fits with 37,5% repair amount and reduced activation costs per lvl.
5. Amarr + Caldari:
-Amarr bonus per lvl: 10% reduction to smartbomb activation cost
-Caldari bonus per lvl: 10% bonus to the AoE radius of smartbombs
-Role bonus: 25% bonus to smartbomb damage, smartbombs equipped to this ship provide an extra 5% additive resistance amount for that specific damage type.
smartbomb oriented hulls. dont know if those can be used on a PvP scenario outside of pipebombing but its uncharted territory in terms of hull design.
gonna wait for those comments, thanks for watching.
