What am I talking about? Simple. I'm talking about how CCP, WITHOUT ANY NOTICE TO US IN THIS PATCH, increased the amount of shields that a shield booster fixes per cycle. I know, people would never believe CCP would stealth buff something, but the truth is here.

Civilian Shield Booster now boosts 6hp/cycle, up from 5. Small Shield Booster I is up to 23hp/cycle, from 20. Medium Shield Booster is up to 68hp/cycle, from 60. All other stats are the same, from cap use to cycle time to fitting.

All T1 shield boosters have been boosted, capital aside. I want CCP to acknowledge this violation of our trust in them, and explain this horrid stealth boost.

Your Rolling Eyes confuses us. The objects in question were packaged items in another station, 40-odd jumps away.

Are you saying that I only need 1 civilian shield booster for my raven instead of 2?

That frees up a mid slot for my survey scanner, now I will pwn Twisted Evil

This is a blatant Minmatar nerf: people will know that Minmatar shield tankers can rep more, so they'll fit higher damage fits. And Minmatar ships will take longer to kill active shield tanking ships. So actually it's a double nerf.

Why the HATE for minmatar, CCP?

Capital shield boosters were buffed the patch before last from 6400hp/cycle to 7200hp/cycle, that didnt make the patch notes either.

I demand ccp revert this un-needed buff to shield boosters!Evil or Very Mad

Maybe, just maybe, you haven't been reading patch notes all that often:

this
"Meta level 1 to 4 shield boosters now have the same duration as tech 1 shield boosters (meta level 0). Shield boost amount and capacitor need have been adjusted: The efficiency has been increased by +12.5% and the boost rate has been increased up to +12.5% for meta level 0 down to -10% for meta level 4. This ensures that the increase in boost rate and efficiency between tech 1 and tech 2 is in line with the values for armor repairers."

Of course, I could be wrong.

This is an Amarr nerf! Because shield tankers, which are weak to lasers, can tank better, so their weakness to lasers is nullified! You took away one of Amarr's favorite roles, shield pwning!

Revert this or my 506 accounts will all close!

I'm glad they are buffing them, as passive shield tank setups are usually a better option right now. This makes active more appealing.

I did not know they had buffed them, but I recently held a T1 Frig Tournament for my corp. I flew a Merlin with two Small Shield Boosters as an experiment, because EFT was giving me some nice numbers compared to my usual passive tanking setups. I was very surprised when I made it all the way to the finals with that setup, when I expected to lose the very first round against a corp mate who is always really strong at the tournaments I hold lol. I lost to a Kestrel firing rockets, those things fire damn fast.

I agree that it doesn't really matter until they boost the T2 versions. I'll stick to passive tanking for now.

Have you ever tried tanking two Gurista Arrogators in an Ibis!?? I think this boost was much needed and long overdue, thank you CCP. The only change that needs to be done now is to reduce the Velators powergrid by 1 so it is not overpowered anymore.

Thanks.

So, the Ibis is now 20% better?












Ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuun !!!
