[00:45] <muhadin> Rorq is way too OP
[00:47] <muhadin> Needs things like, can't activate industrial mode unless X mining barges or exhumers are piloted in range.
[00:48] <muhadin> Or more dependancy on modules for mining drone operation to restrict fitting.
[00:48] <muhadin> Like jezza said.
[00:49] <muhadin> It seems strange that its supposed to be a support ship for a mining fleet but mines 5x better than hulks, unless mining balance passes are coming in the future.
[00:50] <muhadin> Theres no need for mining barges anymore when you can just have 20 rorquals hoovering up entire constellations worth of ore.
[00:54] <muhadin> Don't get me wrong, I really do like that they have to siege to mine and tank, to commit that expensive asset to make better isk, but it seems like this is only going to make it worse for newer pilots who get into mining make less isk, while the rorqs are driving the prices down.
[00:54] <muhadin> Anyways I know its USTZ and theres like 4 people in here, but food for thought.
[05:00] <scott_ormands> No the rorq is under powered please just leave it as it is
[10:21] <ccp_fozzie> We're keeping a close eye on the Rorq and the usage patterns
[10:23] <ccp_fozzie> @titus.tallang yeah the asb charge requirements can definitely be improved
[10:24] <ccp_fozzie> I've seen two realistic ideas suggested: 1) limit it to the smallest charges like you said or 2) allow some sort of difference in effect between the charge sizes to give people multiple viable choices
[10:25] <titus.tallang> either one makes sense as long as it's not "there's this strictly worse choice that we allow for no particular reason"
[10:25] <titus.tallang> idk if larger charges give you half as many cycles but they rep a third more per cycle or something
[10:25] <titus.tallang> that would kind of match the expectation
[10:25] <ccp_fozzie> yeah
[10:25] <ccp_fozzie> basically doing one or the other is sitting on our giant random to-do list :slightly_smiling_face:
[10:47] <steveronuken> sneaks ancillary mwd onto the list. just to see what happens. :wink:
[10:58] <ccp_fozzie> Bad @steveronuken :stuck_out_tongue: Add stuff to your own to-do list
[11:00] <steveronuken> :smile:
