The Cov ops frigs (and especially the Helios)need 1 more high-slot to solve theyre role as Black Ops Support to open a covert cyno.

The most player will fit a cov ops cloak and a recon probe launcher to theyre cov ops frig.
These modules are needed and noone start to seek targets without them.
Now with the Black Ops you have the option to drop your friends directly on your target... if you fly minmatar, amarr or caldari... the gallente pilots have to learn another frig to lvl5 or you hope to find targets at moons or planets.

This need to be fixed!
I think another high-slot wont make the cov ops more stronger then they should be and wont break the game-balance.

Plz think about it CCP!
Thx.

3 slots is enough to differentiate a black-ops setup (covert cyno, cloak) with that of an exploration setup (cloak, probe launcher, salvager). The only ship that REALLY needs an extra high-slot is the Helios.

i agree

one less mid one more high... hardly overpowering the ship.

If you want to open a cyno use a covert force recon.

The main role of the covert ops frig is intelligence gathering/scanning.

Every covops except the Helios can do just this, so it seems CCP disagrees with you.

Just because you don't appreciate something someone else does doesn't mean it is any less relevant. Who cares about the joke at hand. Perhaps it was merely the idea of Bart and the chalkboard.
Hold on a second.. I think I have a new bucket of sand for you to re-bury your head in.

And YES, give my Helios another highslotEvil or Very Mad It doesnt break any mechanic, it just brings the ship in line with the other covert ops.

Fly a real cov-ops ship maybe? The Helios is a joke.

Meh. I fly one for the same reason I fly a Ferox: they just look good. So yes, being useful would be a nice bonus.

I like how they come in and waste time by moderating, but don't comment on the issue that was brought up.

Helios does need another high quite badly. Badly enough that I have though of training minnie frig 5 for the cheetah. Shouldn't have to do that.

Maybe its not intend from CCP that the cov ops frigs should do this cov ops cyno job...but then they have to go sure that NO cov ops frig can do this and not just one race...

in my opinion they should add another high-slot w/o any CPU or PGadjusment so its hard enough to fit them
