of devs testing nanoship via vagabond with T2 rigs and high-grade snakes;
I feel that the nano-nerf was a necessary change to keep missiles in the game and a viable weapons system in PVP. Also, I strongly support CCP's recent agility decrease patch, which now allows cruisers to actually violence each other once again.
of nerfing sole working force recon ship (falcon) because of his own incomplete nanonerf, instead of making other recons viable;
If you don't see that Falcons were so ridiculously overpowered that they were breaking the game, and completely imbalancing small gang PVP warfare, contact me in game for a demonstration. Seriously.
I've set up my own ECM tests to test the effectiveness of ECM vs. non-ECCM'd ships, and ships with all the way up to 5 ECCMs (Sensor strength of 140+). Falcons needed the nerf that they got more than I think any balance issue needed balancing since I started playing EVE.
of his lack of communication and general ignorance of player posts and suggestions;
Dude, the guy's busy. Give him a break.
I'm no(t) against balance changes - I'm ready to adapt to any change. But I think that any change must have cause:
Please give the devs a break. They have the scrutiny of their own bosses, plus 150,000 EVE players they have to consider. I think they do a really good job considering everything they try to do.
I don't say that CCP Nozh's nerfs are completely wrong. Just that they are totally incomplete and one-sided.
How so? They've all received some balancing, Caldari, Gallente, Amarr, Minma-err, wait.
Those who need it, get it. They've all had nerfs that I can think of, and most of them were well deserved.
I understand that each game change are approved by many people in CCP - but it is not player's job to determine who of them exactly made what mistake - so let it be one who proposed most of absurd changes.
Every one who agrees with this - please support.
Not supported. The guy's probably got one of the most difficult jobs in EVE. Most of the changes were needed (Missile balancing, Falcon/Rook and ECM change, agility decrease, NOS change, even the nerf to my precious webs) all were changes that were needed.Please consider the possibility that making EVE a great game doesn't necessarily mean making the popular choice every single time.
If it did, then carebears would have their way, missiles would be the most overpowered weapon system in the game, and we'd see threads requesting a namechange from EVE online to Space-WoW.
