, the sentiment is the same.
Many people use more than a handful of ships and when you have a couple of different fits for each of these ships it is very easy to exceed the current limit of 50 fittings. This is especially true for those that provide help and advice to groups of pilots and regularly need to have a variety of fittings for a variety of ships on hand to pass on to others. Regardless of ones reason for wanting more slots, the current limit is far too restrictive and there is absolutely no merit to imposing a restriction.
When they moved the fittings server-side it made little sense to anyone. Perhaps for corporate-wide fittings it was logical but certainly not for personal fittings.
When the Fearless internal document was leaked it was indicated that charging for more fittings slots was a possibility. The document has been claimed merely to be a test-bed for controversial opinions and to open debate on some issues but the simple indication that they would be willing to charge extra for what was previously a free feature is just too insulting to ignore.
It is clear that the only way they could justify a limit on fittings is by claiming it was a strain on resources. Something that would not be true were fittings to remain client side. There was NO other reason why this change was necessary.
I am disgusted that this game is being deliberately gimped in order to try and grab more money from our wallets.
Allow us to keep as many client-side fittings as we wish and stop trying to money-grub. It's pathetic, cheap and insulting.
In closing: Return personal fittings to a client-side feature and remove the arbitrary limit of 50 fittings.
