yeah i heard this too. apparently there will be a big hit to large shield extenders on cruisers so passive tanking isnt as easy. they are increasing the sig penalty and decreasing the HP

Passive shield tanking is a cancer on the game and a sop to mindless carebears. Good.
Fortunately, a SPR nerf won't affect shield tanks in PVP in the slightest.

It's still 2009 isn't it?

It's got a distinctly 2006 feel today.... did Nocxium just hit 160 per unit in the mad rush to build these new "Drake" thingies?

i heard SPRs are getting nerfed and armor is getting a passive regen. i also heard they are making the scorpion even less symmetrical

No. If there's anything I've learned from the Final Fantasy series, it's that all rumors and legends are always 100% accurate.

Then i see the point of having a Drake as a true passive shield tanker being going down the drain, unless you're telling me they're making a T2 for it, i've got no word on it.

Anyways so far as i see, Drake's a good passive tank, based on my experience, it only TANKS well, but doesn't kill well.
I don't see the point of having the relays being nerfed or anything.

If there is a nerf, i'll petition.
Bah.
That makes the Drake another worthless piece of BBQ Pan.

actually I think that would be possible. if you can extract ships out of eve, then the other way around could also work. It would probably be possible to replace the raven in your install file with this one.
then all ravens would look like this for you, but they would still look normal to everyone else.

don't forget its of course against the EULA to mess with those files and CCP would normally get ****ed off and would therefore most likely ban you Very Happy

They won't nerf SPRs. Passive tanking would become useless instead of "useless except for the three ships in EVE that can actually do it well".

I can confirm this rumor.

I just trained some shield related skills to lvl5.
CCP monitors my account, and whenever I train skills for something to lvl 5, it gets nerfed.

Future watch:
WARNING! I am currently training some scan probe related skills to lvl 5.
So obviously , after a shield nerf will be a scan probe nerf.

I think I should start charging people isks for me NOT training some skills.
In order to prevent CCP from nerfing the according stuff. Twisted Evil


Edit:
Actually, why not start right now?!
The pricing to prevent me from training lvl5 skills will be 1 billion per skill I do not train. If that is to much for your personal wallet - get together with friends and have them send me isks as well. For example, if 10 people send me 100 mil each with reason "stop training astrometrics" - that will be sufficient.

Other skills I am currently concidering upping to lvl5:
Comand ships (specifically Nighthawk)
Marauders (specifically Golem)
Amarr (Zealot)
Black Ops (Sin)

You may send me isks to stop training these as well.
(remember 1 bil for each skill has to be met before I stop training it.)

Hmm, good idea.
Read my edit above - that will be 1 billion plz, Sir.

Also you could prevent me training for the Zealot for another billion.

Pod yourself without a back up clone. Every time a skill reach zero SP the related items will be boosted.

If that work we will pay you a billion for each skill lowered to 0.

We will pay, boy scout word. Twisted Evil


PS: forgot, I have never been a boy scout.

The person who started that rumor must not been around when CCP increased the overall HPs (Shield, Armor, and Hull) on almost all the ships by great amounts to facilitate better, longer lasting PVP. And as others have said, it is only a rumor. I haven't personally heard anything of it.

It's the small troll posts that work the best.

Also this rumour is now into its second page, maybe true ? Very Happy
