Nano-Raven? Nano-Domi? Share the pipe man .. Smile

Sin is decent with a shield/nano fit due to agility, but kind of beside the point. We fit them thus to make them feel less like BS and more like BC's, hence it is proving the original statement. QED.

There are a few BS that are functional beyond the realm of fleets/gangs, but on the whole the bigger ships really don't do well in smaller numbers .. the tier2 BCs are just too damn good/cheap/fun which is evidenced by the huge numbers of them on the various boards.

Ha its some strong stuff... sure you can handle it Wink
Thats the point you CAN make a BS move like a BC but they are infact still battleships, bigger, more hit points, more dmg ect...

Now for an example, because theyre fun and it gets interesting arguements lol Twisted Evil :
Lets put a theoretical (cheep? 200m) sleipnir against... a nano domi (not cheep? 50m)? (thats just hulls)
Assuming twin heavy neuts a general selection of drones and of course nano fit domi, and a buffer tank (active tank sleip's AreNOT cheep) pvp fit sleip'i.... id say its going to be pretty damn close and hoho very fun Very Happy

Edit:
And yes not ALL BS's can be used like a BC (nano amarr Shocked ) but then the same can be said that not all cruisers/BC can be used in fleets (ok they can but an FC might be having words if you bring a ferox to a drake fleet)

There is in fact no really good nano-battleship, with the exception of the Tempest and Fleet Tempest. You can Shield tank and Nano a Dominix, but meh! When I flew it. It's great in your face, but heh! Not enough ehp to be worth flying around in a shield buffer Dominix.

I've been using this instead of the Machariel solo. 810 damage per second, 7.9 align, 1400 m/sec, Cheaper than a Machariel, with pretty much the same performance. Thing is. Shield buffering these battleships outside of gangs is just not worth it. They do offer pretty much the same agility, speed and around the same ehp, in fleets. Just like most battecruisers do. Only think they're worth it when you active tank them solo. In fleets/gangs they're better than battle-cruisers @ damage projection and applied damage, I suppose. Without logistics in said fleets. A shield buffer-tempest would not offer much over a Hurricane (Arty or AC).

With that all said. I believe anyone serious about pvp needs to be able to fly battleships. My engagement envelope has grown, just with the Tempest or Dominix alone. More engagements, means more kills or losses. So, more pvppppppppppp... As far as being boring or not. Battleship pvp can be boring unless you're in a intense engagement. Most of it is micro-ing modules and sitting still (not so for the tempest armor or shield). Also, small gang to me is mostly me and another person. Max 4 - 5 pilots, but me and another pilot for the most part. If you role around in more than that. I roll my eyes with anyone chest beating small gang bla bla bla! Anyways, I to want more ships in game. This game gets redundant @ around 30 - 35 million skill points. More ships and modules would bring alot of people back to the game and keep people playing. Would be cool if we got rid of every class of ship above battleships too...
