ok you can tell it's lunch break time and i am the only one at work today from my usual lunch break food gank squadVery Happy

as it is i personally do not see any use for the abbadon (might just be me mind you).

so i started to think what to do with it....

amarr does NOT have a mining cruiser (well there si that drone bonus on the arbitrator ofc but come on....)

make the abbadon a MINING BS or rather battleship sized mining vessel!
boni:
10% to cargo cap per skill level
5% to MINING laser ROF per skill level

basicly it would be almost the same for combat as it is now but it would offer a reasonable USP. you could also use it as somewhat sturdy hauler without going for blockade runners but nowhere near as safe or fast as blockade runners.

You want to mine .. get a barge - You want to hunt and kill get a BS ...
Battleships are ment for shooting ... not for mining ...
Unless of course you'd rather they implement a Mining Barge that can fit 8 turret/launcher slots and Solo pwn everything in sight ... *sigh* ...

8 turrets and a passive tank bonus aren't enough for you to mine in? :|

agreed.
10% cargo, exchange that for 30% bonus to mining laser optimal range. so now you can Snipe Veldospar.

Actually, that gives me a good idea.

Give it a +30% cargo per level bonus.

For the cap booster charges MadLaughing

For the Love of god no!

The New Minmatar Ship Looks like a Mining ship, but the Abbadon, It Looks like a badass Battleship! Hell I think this ship looks 10x better than the rokh, It looks Big and Nasty... I usually dont go for anything for just the looks but this ship makes me want to go amarr even though I think 85% of their other ships are ugly.

An idea though is for it be useful for different weapon sets, like Using Projectile or Hybird weapons... or hell even a mix of Hybird and Lasers. Give it like...

+10% damage for Large Guns
-5% cap usage

penalty:
-5% to range of large Guns

So it wouldnt work as a sniper ship but it would be great as a medium range combat ship.

[Sarcasm]

Yes! Something NEW for the Amarr fleet, something Amarr DO NOT YET HAVE, sorta destructuve midrange ship huh, let's call it armageddon!

[/Sarcasm]

I mean what the hell is wrong with current ship desing policies...

Caldari get:

-Best EW Battleship, Scorpion
-Best Missile Battleship, Raven
-Best Sniper Battleship, Rokh

Amarr get:

-Decent damage dealer, mediocre sniper, Geddon
-Decent tanker, mediocre sniper, Apoc
-Crap at everything, Abaddon

Who else sees something wrong here?

i must admit after flying the abbadon on the test server for a couple of days i dont see a role for this ship other than bait. the cap issue on this ship basically makes it useless.

It should be 5% rof for large projectiles and 5% armor ^^

...you're too preoccupied with wanting to snipe rather than get up close and personal?

...you don't like frikkin' lasers!?

I was posting about this when they first released the details on the teir 3 bs - amarr was going to get the shaft again.

Yes, it would be more useful as a mining barge, just as the Apoc's role is as a rat tank.

Pretty sad to say the least, especially when Tux even says amarr needs some love (or more correctly a special kind of love, so maybe he just means sticking it further up the...) especially since the balance is so out of wack. Right now as it stands, amarr skills are just an sp sink and you have to move over to another class or classes to even be playable.
