One of each of racial warfare links bust ship defense in some way. Caldari - shields resistances (shield tanking), Amarr - armor resistances (armor tanking), Minmatar - agility and speed (speed and orbital tanking). But Gallente have nothing of this sort, as usual.

So what if some of information warfare links will shrink ships signature? Signature tanking is not that good as armor or shield tanking, but still better than nothing.

You mean like this?

Yes, like this. But this must be information warfare link, not skirmish. Ok, tell me then how information warfare links can help a fleet? And why of all four races Gallente have most useless warfare links, turrets, and active armor tank? Why are they so inferior?

They are secretly controlled by the crab people.

Seriously though, they are not useless, they are merely useful in a small number of situations. Somebody needed to fill that niche, it ended up Galente. Cross training is like 20 days anyway, just do it.

instead of going full ****** and demanding ccp create a mod that does the exact same thing in the exact same way as another mod already does, lets try and theorise how one could increase gallente leadership mods utility in general.

as pointed out, several mods exist that improve tanking. why not have a gallente mod that improve damage instead? or tracking? or range?

these, combined with the much needed look at hybrid weaponry in general, could bring gallente back to par with the other races again. if it was done well it wouldnt even be hilariously imbalanced.

I disagree that damage boosting would be good for leadership. It would make things like POS bashing, station capture, etc easier, which is not a good thing.

I was pondering about things like drone durability or drone speed boosting. Not sure if it would be worth a command slot though.

Increased optimal and tracking of hybrids? Blaster supremacy!

Increased drone navigation and sharpshooting? (heavies moving as fast as warriors, oh yeah!) :)

while i agree it needs a lot more thought than i have put into it, i (in general terms) think it might be possible to pull off...i dont necessarily see stations being easy to take being a problem, as being hard to take is part of the reason 0.0 is supercarriers online at the moment, which is all manner of dumb. that said, i prefer the tracking aspect.


in any case, i would think the bonus would have to be something suited to the supposed gallente warfare style, which is, as i understand it, high close range dps from blasters and drones, with armour tanking. now, armour tanking is ofcourse already covered, which leaves some close range weapon or drone effect the ideal route to my mind.

what say you?
