[08:24] <noobman> @ccp_larrikin so the mechanic around normal dread guns applying a flat less damage percentage to bs and below. Is that sig based? Is it related to base sig or can you paint a battleship with bonused paint ship and apply full damage?
[08:26] <ccp_larrikin> @noobman: its not been implimented yet. Given the large increase in signature radius we want to see if we can just use normal tracking mechanics. If not we'll impliment something simmilar to the fighter damage reduction on light/heavy missiles
[08:27] <noobman> Interesting. And another question someone asked me I think I know the answer to.
[08:27] <noobman> Haw are 1 class right like there won't be a Haw blaster and a Haw rail for example.
[08:28] <ccp_larrikin> HAWs are just SR XL Weapons
[08:28] <noobman> Ya that's what I assumed. Thanks
[08:28] <ccp_larrikin> so they need the same T2 skills as SR weapons, etc. etc.
[08:30] <noobman> Has there been any thoughts to a low slot ewar resistance module for shield tank ships?
[08:30] <ccp_larrikin> you mean like a sig amp?
[08:31] <noobman> Ya
[08:31] <noobman> Low slot cap battery
[08:31] <ccp_larrikin> oh right
[08:31] <ccp_larrikin> no
[08:31] <ccp_larrikin> thats one of the differences with using shield
[08:31] <ccp_larrikin> you get reps at the start of the cycle, but your sharing midslots
[08:33] <noobman> Balancing your ewar resistance with your tank is a really cool complexity.
[08:33] <noobman> We just redid our neut legion fit. It's pretty amazing
[08:33] <noobman> Looking forward to clone swapping in citadels for talisman bhaals and neut legions
[08:35] <ccp_larrikin> I have a soft spot in my heart for talisman neut legions, I had this big plan to use them as part of a legion AHAC fleet :simple_smile:
[08:37] <noobman> Neut legions are the staple of hks t3 fleet. We always bring 8 no mater what we might have 3 or 4 dps ships but we will kill you with our hammerhead if we have too lol
[08:37] <noobman> All gonna change come the new cap changes
[08:38] <noobman> Cap boosters and huge cap pools gonna be fun inventing the meta
[08:39] <noobman> A bought 10 nid 10archon 5thanny 5chims recently. Gonna slap a triage mod on them and sell faxs
[08:39] <ccp_larrikin> Hah
[08:40] <ccp_larrikin> I'm pretty curious what happens to the market on Faux come patch day
[08:40] <noobman> Ya
[08:41] <noobman> I bought the carriers at 1.15 so if I could get 2 for them would be good investment
[08:43] <noobman> I sold my chameleon for 130bil so I could have some walkin around money for this release.
[08:44] <ccp_larrikin> Did you ever fly your Chameleon?
[08:48] <noobman> have you seen this market double?
[08:48] <noobman> shadows used to be 1 bil now they are 2-2.5
[08:50] <noobman> no Revenant and no shadows info out yet right?
[08:50] <5pitf1re> interesting
[08:50] <5pitf1re> didn’t think people would speculate already
[08:51] <noobman> a lot of people are buying revenants that i know
[08:51] <5pitf1re> wow, no pressure @ccp_larrikin :smile:
[08:52] <ccp_larrikin> @noobman: nope, no rev or shadow info out yet
[08:52] <noobman> another interesting this is if they are going to reduce the size of most capital modules then what is the purpose (besides swag) of officer drone control units?
[08:52] <5pitf1re> DCUs will be useless as they are
[08:53] <ccp_larrikin> Ah, we have an interesting way of solving that, just need to verify it technicly
[08:53] <noobman> o0o0o0o0o
[08:53] <noobman> makes me want to buy a set for my rev
[08:54] <noobman> the officer mod im happy i own is the tobi point and tobi scram
[08:55] <scott_ormands> the officer mod I want is a damage control
[08:56] <ccp_larrikin> @scott_ormands: when @5pitf1re said DCU's will be useless, I saw 'Damage Control Unit' and was like 'whaaaaaaaaaaaat?!'
[08:56] <5pitf1re> heh
[08:56] <scott_ormands> but if drop rates for other officer mods are any indication like half of those officer DCs will never drop
[08:56] <scott_ormands> lol
[08:56] <scott_ormands> I dont even have 1 drone control in my aeon'
[08:57] <scott_ormands> so its already useless to me
[08:57] <scott_ormands> :stuck_out_tongue:
[08:57] <ccp_larrikin> @scott_ormands: some have dropped already :simple_smile:
[08:57] <noobman> Revenant needs the 5 DCU's fitted at all time to apply the max dps
[08:58] <noobman> then you have a cloak and a cyno fitted
[08:59] <scott_ormands> I would be curious to know what the drop spawn rate for officers/officer mods are. It seems like some mods never show up ever but others are a lot more common
[08:59] <ccp_larrikin> I had a Revenant once \o/
[08:59] <ccp_larrikin> for about 5 days
[08:59] <noobman> sold or died?
[08:59] <scott_ormands> i hope that wsnt the "no less than 12 bl spies rev"
[09:00] <ccp_larrikin> died, on purpose :simple_smile:
[09:00] <ccp_larrikin> hah no
[09:00] <scott_ormands> looks up rev los mails
[09:00] <ccp_larrikin> hah there isn't one
[09:00] <scott_ormands> evebet ewvent>?
[09:00] <ccp_larrikin> yup
[09:00] <scott_ormands> ahhh i was there
[09:00] <scott_ormands> rip server
[09:01] <noobman> I have a Nyx a Revenant and an Erebus
[09:01] <noobman> im thinking about swapping to a Levi tho
[09:01] <noobman> but wanna see who the changes play out
[09:02] <scott_ormands> ive got an aeon, currrently saving for a bus and nyx
[09:02] <noobman> erebus is my favorite looking ship in the game
[09:02] <ccp_larrikin> Super and Titan here
[09:02] <noobman> screams gallente
[09:02] <scott_ormands> i love the look of the bus
[09:02] <scott_ormands> but it needs a police skin
[09:03] <noobman> if you own a rev you have to own a armor super too for a the fights where they are like "yeah no shield supers cus we might die here"
[09:03] <noobman> man a police skin would be amazing
[09:03] <noobman> i got the legacy skin
[09:04] <scott_ormands> ive got the eom skin for my aeon and an archon pilot, only skins ive paid for
[09:04] <scott_ormands> got a few other skins uninjected though
[09:04] <noobman> i got the AT skin for my rev
[09:04] <scott_ormands> nice
[09:05] <scott_ormands> i keep debationg ehat char to inject my evevegas skin on
[09:05] <scott_ormands> idk if it should go on my main or on the pilot that has skills for the hyp
[09:07] <5pitf1re> I don’t think I’ll get a super again unless they are truly dockable but if a super again then it would be a Hel this time.
[09:07] <ccp_larrikin> @5pitf1re: they are dockable in citadels?
[09:07] <5pitf1re> yes, in XLs :simple_smile:
[09:08] <ccp_larrikin> yeah?
[09:08] <5pitf1re> a lot of smaller entities will not get XLs
[09:08] <ccp_larrikin> True
[09:08] <sebastien_st.frusquin> get chribba to make a freeport XL in lowsec
[09:08] <scott_ormands> ther nomadic groups wont either probably
[09:08] <ccp_larrikin> I'm going to be curious if somone sets one up in lowsec to sell supers (hah used super car lot?)
[09:09] <5pitf1re> scott_ormands: true
[09:09] <scott_ormands> if chribba does set one up the jump routes to it would be perma camped
[09:09] <5pitf1re> for me personally it’s just the fact that I simply don’t want to have a character be stuck in a ship
[09:10] <5pitf1re> and joining a big group just to have access to a XL is also not something I’ll do, so no super for me :simple_smile:
[09:10] <ccp_larrikin> Fair enough :simple_smile:
[09:11] <noobman> what about a holder @5pitf1re ?
[09:11] <5pitf1re> still, with the removal of POSes in favour of citadels/other structures in the future it is not a viable option
[09:11] <scott_ormands> i bought a super because its something ive wanted for a long time, but i would be lieing if i said that I felt I only had a few choices on where to go if I wanted to get one. if i couldnt have gotten into NC i wouldnt have bought one
[09:12] <scott_ormands> its just not safe to have them if you arent in pl goons or nc
[09:12] <5pitf1re> and then again, what would I use it for if I’m in a small group? :simple_smile:
[09:13] <scott_ormands> elite solo pvp?
[09:13] <scott_ormands> like that dude in a hell
[09:13] <noobman> move to drones and kill carriers
[09:13] <5pitf1re> maybe, but I think BS are more fun and for that though
[09:14] <scott_ormands> i get that
[09:15] <scott_ormands> i keep needing to fly bigger and shinyer stuff to keep up with that pvp and adrenaline shakes
[09:15] <scott_ormands> at this point i only ever get it fly caps, blops or supers
[09:15] <scott_ormands> everything else is just meh
[10:44] <capqu> i dont even have battleships injected
[10:44] <capqu> ama
[12:55] <noobman> So if you have Fighters V and Fibos V you dont need to train the new fighters skill they pre released right?
[12:58] <5pitf1re> no you have to
[12:58] <5pitf1re> you need the light and support fighter skills iirc
[12:58] <5pitf1re> for heavy fighters you only need fibos afaik
[12:58] <5pitf1re> is confusing
[13:41] <steveronuken> I _think_ that you don't need the light and support skills. just the fighter skill. You just don't get any bonuses from the skills (that you don't have)
[14:15] <ccp_larrikin> @noobman: you need them. But only at level 1
[14:16] <noobman> thanks
[14:34] <5pitf1re> @ccp_larrikin: please make Imperial Navy Templars etc.
[14:35] <5pitf1re> I wanna be able to go full roleplay mode :smile:
[14:35] <5pitf1re> I'm sure CVA duders will agree.
[14:36] <steveronuken> My mistake then :smile:
[14:37] <5pitf1re> and of course we need Guristas fighter squadrons too because Valkyrie
[14:37] <5pitf1re> and while we're at it there should be other pirate faction squadrons too
[14:37] <5pitf1re> :3
[14:38] <5pitf1re> just sayin'
[14:39] <ccp_larrikin> I mean we already have Shadows right?
[14:44] <5pitf1re> yea, so might as well just have more :simple_smile:
[14:45] <5pitf1re> I know that this would mean more work for the art department though.
[14:45] <capqu> doubt it
[14:45] <5pitf1re> at least for the skins
[14:45] <capqu> v3 means u can just use other models and put whatever skin on them
[14:45] <capqu> and imperial navy already have a skin
[14:45] <5pitf1re> mhmm
[15:23] <tinkerhell> Guess i should put more effort into buying a Revenant again before Larrikin says anything about them :stuck_out_tongue:
[15:24] <5pitf1re> inb4 they're not going to be as epic as everyone believes
[15:25] <tinkerhell> I tend to just buy things because they exist anyway :stuck_out_tongue:
[15:25] <5pitf1re> fair enough
[15:25] <5pitf1re> I tend to do the same, just not on that scale heh
