Oh look how impressive Tomb waves that bat around, what skillz, what accuracy... Well now that i am done being a jack A** ( my choosen career) I have had a long hard think about somethings. For starters who is intrested in a 2 second battle between say a Two boxers on fight night? oh wait we hate those. For u that live in England how about a 2 second Cricket game? OHHH hell u say that is stupid and would not be worth your time?.

My point is why the hell should a death match between two people that hate each other last as long as a 12 year males attention span while listening to his mother when he has done 10 caffeine pills and is in a **** store? oh it shouldn't cause that is just stupid. Every known sport we watch has to do with competitions that last longer than 5 seconds and would be a hated sport or past time if it did not. So lets fix the damage on all weapons and ships so they mimic our favourite past time. Yes that means drop all weapon damage by X amount of value and watch everything slug away at each other for at least 6 mins. That means keep the current hull, armor, shield hp, do not touch the fricking hp. Make these changes and u will see a game that is altered for the better inties won't go pop in on volley, crusiers won't pop in one volley, a bs won't pop in 2 volleys. I think the idea of being able to fight for more than 2-30secs is great. Oh and of course every rat type needs a reduction of damage and because of time delay on damage worth more money as well.

Before i end this i just heard a sobing whine in my head, What then i can't gank u at a gate and laugh cause that is all i know. Boofrickinwho get into where the real action is, u web the bs and u shoot at the bs then call for help cause u need more than your wuss squad of a bb and a bs to take it out. Oh that is to hard cause it requires thinking and planning? Well welcome to eve the new most amazing pvp planned out game where not every battle is won by u the pirate or gank master. It just makes things harder and more intresting for all as nothing is the i win button.

Constructive feed back only please, if u feel like being lame today go make a nOOB post of your own flaming yourself. I will get to the other things on a another day as this is enough to think about on it's own.

I edited this cause it was early and i had more mistakes than usual now i should have only a few.

Sorry man but that was hurting my eyes ;)

I don't think a damage reduction across the board would do much except to make tanks uncrackable and make some battles take an inordinate length of time. Yes long battles are fun but ones that just run and run because neither can break the others defence is just boring.

Frigates and Interceptors go pop in a few volleys or so because in the grand scheme of things these rather large ships by our standards are just the smaller fish in a rather high powered ocean. Imagine a fighter craft from today and compare it to a frigate. It's small, fast and nimble able to deliver a small payload quickly but it is not built to withstand a lot of punishment. Then compare erm....a battleship(?) to an EVE BS. Big and slow but a very heavy hitter. Can withstand large amounts of damage to a degree but there are weapon systems out there made specifically to put large holes in places there shouldn't be....ermm I rambled there but you get my point :D

So in short it's not the amount of damage that needs looking at, it's the methods that it's delivered that need fixing. A good start is being made with the laser rebalance. Let's hope they fix hybrids too :)

The proposed ship point increase is EFFECTIVELY a damage reduction across the board.

But hey, why have one nerf when you can have two at twice the price? "i.e. free".
-to paraphrase a particular line from Contact.

Cool

Ya i did say don't do the hp changes, think of this as don't break a already hard kept but still broken balance even more. So no hp change only gun change.

Umm dude.... You are trying to compare combat to a sport thereRolling Eyes, don't think it quite works. Combat relating to our current combat, doesn't take an hour to blow up an enemy fighter. One missile and he is dead.
