Can they be looked at by a Dev.

With nos being used very rarly now, and nuets being used even more, cap boosters are on just about any setup that doesnt use a passive shield tank.

For cruisers BC, they can struggle with a cycle of 800's every 22 seconds anything smaller must rely on passive cap recharge as small cap boosters provide an increadibly small amount of cap with either two cycles or one not much better cycle (150 - 200).

The size of the boosters themselves are also off considering how many one needs to carry, this is esspessially important in 0.0.

Cap boosters have not changed since day one, and i really REALLY think (along with many people pve and pvp based) that cap boosters in general need a major look at to keep up with the way eve works now.

Ad+apt
it's not aptad
adapt.

If they're using neuts, and not NOS's, if your caprecharge rate is better than theirs more than the amount they neut more than they use (wow that's a tough sentence), then you win eventually, with zero cap boosters.

Fitting 2 NOS's should also make up the difference and keep both of you approx at equal cap to eachoter.

Also drones.

Also here's some cheese to go with your whine:

Have your own neut ship ready.

I agree with this point, I can only fit like 13-14 800's in my Ishtar, I would love if they weren't so damn big.

I dont really get it, but are you saying cap boosters should be even better than they are now?

Cap boosters are a mess.

Neuts on every other ship means that its more important for pvpers to carry them, even more so to the smaller ships that get their cap nuked in one cycle from a BS (any sub bc).

The ships that have the most trouble are the ships between sizes, espessially cruisers (hacs recons etc) are stuck with 800's and single use medium injectors.

Heavy injectors are okay with 800s, but could benifit form a larger charge, like a 1500 charge for vareity.

Medium injectors need a bit more space so they can accomodate 4-5 (named - t2) 400 charges like BS can hold 4-5 800s, and so on down the line.

Does no one else see that these modules are not ballenced through the sizes at all, dispite being FAR more nessery than ever.
