CCP have revamped carriers, supercarriers (motherships), and titans. While dreads have been left in the dust.

Issues:
Reliance on Siege Module
-- The dreadnought class ships rely solely on the siege module to perform any role. Dreads need a role to play (effectively) while out of siege.

Lack of bonuses
-- Other capital ships have a plethora of ship and role bonuses, while dreads are left with a substandard 2 bonuses.

Fixing Supercarriers might mean that entering siege mode without supercap supremacy is no longer an act of suicide though.

I thought this thread was about better hear options. I was trolled.

True, though even then Dreads will still rely solely on the siege module to be effective at anythingConfused

It would be nice to be able to hit Sleepers with a dread when doing a capital escalation.

Even if the guns can hit bs rats, the locking time still makes almost any other ship more effective.


Give dreads some extra utility highslots, that way they can nos/neut/smartbomb.

Along with this give them the ability to fit ganglinks. As all of the other combat capitals are able to fit them.

Maybe give them a small corp hanger,

Dreads are only good at shooting towers and stations, and even then they are still second choice. To make them first choice by only nerfing scarriers would be a hefty nerf. Scarriers need a bit of a nerf, but dreads need some pretty substantial buffing after all the multiple beatings they've had with the nerf stick.

1. They need more buffer.
2. They need to do more damage.
3. They need a shorter siege timer.
4. They need a reduction to the tracking debuff when going into siege so they can actually hit other caps.
