Lately I've had to come to terms with the fact that my skilltree is a disaster. I've got SP all over the place with no clear specialization, and I'd almost think about re-rolling if I wouldn't end up taking a year and a half just to get back into the ships I actually like. So I thought I'd make the most of the situation and focus on something arcane like cap warfare. While screwing around with Curse loadouts, I came up with this one, which obviously doesn't pack much of a punch but is almost certainly guaranteed to be a nasty surprise for any mid-range ship it comes across.

For the sake of argument, at all level V this ship drains about 50 cap/sec from 88km away, and is cap stable with everything running. The AB is only useful for getting into position, and I'd rather keep my sig radius low at that range. There isn't an inch of tank anywhere on this thing, but I say you're better off living on the wild side anyway. Pick fast drones and send them off to harass your prey; even if they don't do a lot of DPS, they'll be a lot scarier when your target can't tank.

Probably best in a small gang. Gather up a few HACs and see if you can't find a Raven ratting in a belt somewhere.

My only question is: does this actually work in practice?

Curse can also hold 5 Sentry Drones aswell as 5 extra light Combat Drones, I would use it as a stealthy sniper.

Shame that it can only control 2 sentry drones at a time..

It only has a drone bandwidth 50 Mbit and sentries use 25 Mbit.

I was about to ask 'how the hell are you getting 88km?' until I saw the 'Heavy' ... it was around this time I gave up on posting in this thread. Wait ... where am I? Shocked

Anyway, I like your creative thinking, but I cannot help but think that your idea is simply going to be a sitting duck just begging for an alpha volley pop.
