With the upcoming nerf coming soon effecting webs and medium drones that puts my amarr ships in a spot of bother; so I made this thread on pre-nerf training into another race.

I feel mostly that my cruisers, recon and interceptors will be hit hard.

Let's face it, the arbitrator is the only decent amarr cruiser, it can pack some dps, has a good tank and can disable alot of targets CAP quickly. The nerf will knock out its primary DPS factor, drones. It could still be used as a pure support ship with armor rep drones and such but my problem is, thats the only good amarr cruiser. Omen, meh... only really good on small ships like frigates and dessies. Maller, pure tanker, poor dps.

Interceptors speed and web bonus is lost to nerf, making it weak in comparison to the crow.

Recon's.. well same as the arbitrator really.

So, what do you think would be an ideal race to train into with the upcoming nerf in mind focusing mainly on those 3 ships types?

* Ok, I have only just been told that the dps on drones will change against smaller sized ships.

Yes, amarr needs moar boost.

I am not asking for a boost, but an alternate race choice, I'd like to crosstrain into, but what would be best?

Amarr will still have the kick ass zealot, battleships, harbinger ;)

other than a few choice ships amarr will come out of the speed 'patch' better than anyone with acception possibley to caldari (depends on view point) most amarr shps tank better than the other races equivalent and the majority of theyre ships use lasers for dps not drones. lasers have a range that is more often than not longer than a web.

spare a tear a thought for gallente pilots that are going to be ass****** by this patch oh and dont forget minmatarVery Happy

Cruisers - Train minmatar (amarr t1 cruisers have sucked anyway)
Inties - Amarr will still be good
Recons - Train caldari

Just use your freaking drone bay to stow some light drones in and you shouldn't notice a difference. The medium drones will only get nerfed in respect to small, fastish moving targets like frigates and interceptors.

You are either suffering from hysteria or fearmongering, considering that you don't even know what results the changes will have or any specifics on how medium drones will be nerfed.Rolling Eyes
