CCP's algorithm for player enjoyment.

1) Get a new bling bling ship on the market
2) Give it some über properties
3) Make it accessible only with a rediculous amount of skills
4) Wait until x% of the player base has one
5) Nerf the thing
6) Return to 1)


Thanks for nerfing the BC dudes. Really appreciated.

Huh? Since when the hell do Battlecruisers take a ridiculous amount of skills to use? And all they are doing is increasing the shield recharge rate to 1400 seconds. If you can't learn to deal with that, then stick with your Ibis.

Can I have your stuff?

Always wanted to say that! YES!

EDIT:

Also, using HTML formatting from 1997 makes your argument so much more valid.

Another Drake whine?

Dear lord, get over yourselves. The Drake was massively more powerful than the other three new BC's, due to a BS sized passive tank. People complain about nerfs a lot, but bringing an unintentionally overpowered item in to line with the norm is pretty much THE acceptable time to nerf something.

The Drake still kicks ass, even with it's new stats. Complaining because your toy has been taken away is totally not cool.

Drake, massively overpowered in the same sentence? Lay off the crack. Feel free to visit S&M for details.

I agree with the OP as long as the letters BC are replaced with CS.

drake is still overpowered imo it can still passive tank sentrys. and not even some BS's can passive tank sentrys. Also even with the nerf it still has the second best tank in the game (after the passive shield tanked myrm ofc)

Lmao looks like you got burned Razz.

In all seriousness I saw a Drake on the test server today happily tanking passively, sure it can't tank a Battleship anymore but... oh wait thats balanced! Wink

True but one flaw .. is not player enjoyment, is addiction.
