when did the frence EVER had succes in any war?


um, they invaded and conquered england, for example. 1066, remember? and some weird guy named Napoleon.


1066, we were invaded by Normans not French! (The people living in Normandy at that time had come down from northern Europe and settled on the French coast). That little weirdo called Napoleon though, he managed to win more battles than; Alexander the Great, Frederick the great, and Genghis Khan ............................................Combined!!!!!!!

Yes, but see, when any "Frenchman" conquers something, they are no longer French. Its part of the definition of being French that you can't win a war. Laughing

Sorry, had to reply.

From what I can see, the entire issue seems to be because Gallentes primary combat module, drones, don't use slots, CPU, or PSU, which means they can jam pack the rest of their slots with Nos/Neuts/Drone augs, etc, allowing them to rely entirely on their drones for DPS.




The inherent problem with drones is time based, it takes time to deploy drones and get them to target, the enemy can usually be chewing away your armour before the 'uber' drones even get to firing distance.

It's at that point the gallente ship has to run away leaving it's main weapon behind, never mind the attention deficit disorder of drones, if they have to travel more than 30km they forget what they are doing and wander off. Drones are not overpowered but they are useful in certain situations.

Personally I use gun/missile based ships for pvp they do damage almost instantly, not 30secs to 2 mins after you click engage target.
(and don't forget, most ships have a drone bay not just Gallente)

Thanks for attacking the French, that's really mature. I'm half-German and half-French and can honestly say the French are great people. Very kind and respectful. Anyways, I picked Gallente because I wanted to look human but noticed Caldari are overplayed. So what? That's a video game for you.

Of course we Gallente are better than you Amarr - just ask any of your women! They love us and our buzzy little drone friends...

And we can cook!

Not French > *


Wow, with racism like that I'm suprised this thread hasn't been heavily nerfed.

Anyway, you don't think the Vagabond is arguably one of the best ships for solo work? Not winning the engagement... run away!

And don't forget the sabre, the most popular and effective dictor.

All this whine is making me hungry for cheese...

Lets see....Britishinvader obviously from Britain.

So France Vs Britain...or :

Exellent food vs fish and chips and other nastyness
Riviera vs rain and cloudy summers
Hot chicks vs ugly ones with funy teeth
'Mon cherie' vs 'lo guvna'

Yeah, I'd pick France over Britain anyday of the week.

England: Colonization. Opiumwars (China). Israel. Argentinia (the truth is not in the history books), Ireland etc etc

On the good side, they pushed the industrial development.

France: Colonization and some middleage invasions (like UK)... today: Foreign Legion being in any political battle theatre in the world (not really advertizing that though)

Om the good side they shaped the modern intellectual view of freedom and the rights of the people big time.


So I think both nations are just humans, and they both have their ups and downs.
Stop the racism, or become german. lol

A few months ago, I became the target of an absolute STORM of drones when BoB came rampaging through one of our gate camps.

Twin large plasma smartbombs saw them off in less than a second, and the ECM on my Scorpion allowed me to break the locks on all four of the tacklers who had me scrambled so I could get the hell out of there.

The Gallente are extremely good at GALLENTEAN PvP - all four of the races have their own individual strengths and weaknesses that just need to be intelligently applied, and if you build a ship to counter a specific tactic, then you're laughing.

oh, and I fail to see why the smartbomb in empire thing is a problem - avoiding getting killed in an empire war is as simple as fitting lots of warp core stabs - if you don't want to fight, don't. simple. and of course, the problem ceases to apply in low sec/0.0

"Smart bombs are the answer" Laughing

Anyway, the op is right, I switched to Gallente from Caldari a few months ago, and everything IS SO much better, although I still use the raven for Missions

Edit : He is obviously joking around with the French being crap etc.

I wasn't going to involve myself in this absolutely moronic thread starting by an ignorant troll and perpetuated by people who think ignorant trolls can be satiated by logic. Well... I did.

French history is equally as dark as British history in terms of their treatment of their colonies. Congo? Algeria? Haiti? Guiana? Congratulations. Three FYIs:

1) The French vs. British thing is pathetic and irritating. Give it up guys, you're both subservient to the US and China. I lived in the UK and I swear this constant blaming of France for things made we want to flog all the history teachers. Nelson is dead, so is Napoleon. Give it up people! (I'm not American)
2) How does that translate to EVE Online? Answer: It doesn't, and those who think it does have problems.
3) Minnie ships can rock the Gallentean world given that they can put out explosive damage which Gal ships are vulnerable to, and that they are fast. Like many Gallente I fear the sight of Jaguars and especially Vagabonds.

Have you ever done missions in a drone boat? It's a pain! They don't listen to commands and veer off in any direction they please, pulling entire rooms with them obliviously. As a previous poster mentioned, the Rokh outsnipes the Megathron.

So give up. You lost. Go discover that what makes this game wonderful is its diversity.

Can everyone just *stop* doing the "FRENCH hurrhurrhurr" thing?

You are a disgrace to yourselves and show your ignorance of history and lack of respect for the French people. Free French stormed the beaches of Normandy, partisans inside of the country conducted sabotage under threat of execution and torture in preparation for it. Please, read a book. If it had been the US that had been the neighbours of Germany, they too would have been overwhelmed by the blitzkrieg - France had superior tanks and more troops, but were outmaneuvered by the blitz.

France never surrendered.

Also, the Gallente Federation is a *federation*. The Jin Mei and Intaki are not of french origin, only the Gallentean bloodline, and that's so far in the past it doesn't even matter.

There are....4 Gallente ships that use Drones as their primary weapon.

Vexor - Its a cruiser, no one cares.

Ishtar - Its a HAC

Myrmidon - Everyone agrees this thing is overpowered

Dominix - The PG is horrific.

-----
Admittedly, the Gallente ships are some of the best designed.
Ships like the Thorax and Megathron are widely used and don't have horrible drawbacks.

Thats really the difference in most regards. Gallente doesn't suck. Razz

As far as drones go Smartbombs are the natural and easy counter. Also sicking drones on someone will get you CONCORDED hard.
