Was thinking about the following setup as the Ultimate PvP/NPC Platform:

Ship Class: Megathron

Highs:
2x425 mm Rails
2xDual 250 Rails
2xIon Blasters
1xDual 150 Rails (Cruiser Size!)
1xLarge Smart Bomb (Gravitron)

[all with anti-matter or iron]

Mids:
4xLarge Hull Repairer II

Lows:
7xLocal Hull Conversion Reinforced Bulkheads 14% (should be pretty cheap if you can find someone who hasn't melted them) - no naga price listed for these

The thought is that the opponent will melt through your shields and armor very quickly (being unhardened and non-repaired). When they get to your hull though... holy moses! You've got 16430 Hull (With Hull Upgrades 4), and they'll be in for a treat! Cool

You'll be able to start doing damage to them way out and continue all the way till they're on top of you! The beauty is that everything can run indefinately! And with those 4xLarge Hull Repairer IIs, you be pulling 17.44 armor back per second!!!! Shocked

This is tested in 1v1 pvp vs a Raven, Apoc, Gankageddon and few others, and is the l33t!!! No one can win! Twisted Evil

If you have any comments/suggestions - please post!!! You'll be hard pressed to sway Weirda that there is a better Battleship platform out there though!!! YARRRR!!

well, if you've tested and it works, thats pretty crazy. the problem though is that you have no "safety net" when armor tanking, you can lose all your armor and still have all your structure left to run away. i guess thats a setup for those who like to take risks.

Just a simple mathematic solution: raven with 6x siege 600 damage a hit = 3200 damage in 12 secs so its 266 DoT, you can tank only 17.44 :P
nice try but if you want to be taken serious you have to come with something better than this

sorry for the dubbelpost but another thing. hull upgrades given armor HP. You need the mechanic skill for your hull.

That is the craziest setup I ever saw here, which mean something :)

I'd even think you're a hopeless newb deserving to die if this post wasn't a jokeVery Happy

that is just so stupid because it wont work. with 0 resistanes you are dead if even a frigate starts shooting at you mate.

on my armageddon i repair 137 dmg per second.

on top of taht i have 60/70/70/70 resistances (roughly).

i call that tanking, go figure who of us will survive longest. you repair 17.44 structure per second, i 137 armor. you have 0 resistances when i get into structure, i have roughly 68% damage reduction.

Wasn't sure how long Weirda should let this go... don't want to sully reputation too much.

Am absolutely bored at work and thought that this was a hilarious replica of some of the inane setups that get posted here all the time.

This is a joke though - wansn't really intended as flamebait, was actually hoping that some others would 'play along' with variants to the most absolutely ******ed battleship that Weirda could possibly dream! Razz

On that note, maybe an IBTL is appropriate... since this is a joke on a very serious forum! Shocked

(Weirda doesn't even fly those perverse galliente wagons anyways!!!!)

This weekend I blew up a raven that actually had 2 capacitor flux coils fitted...now that's a CRAZY setup. Structure tanking would be much better if some how combined with capacitor flux coils. Laughing

ROFL!

Would squeeze one in - but then it would gimp setup (if you had to take out one of the uber l33t local reinforced bulkheads!)... Laughing

You know what is really sad? A Dominix would do a better job at hull tanking then a Megathron. ROFL!

LOL - the thought crossed weirda's mind (more mids)... then was even thinking Scorpion (LOL). Realized though that the only (slightly) impressive number that would be put up there would be the 'total structure'... since the hull repairers only do like 4.3 hull per sec (best named/tech ii)...

Nobody really commented about the Highs (you know the standard "don't mix range/only % effective at any range" thing)... oh well... guess the rest was just too shocking. Tried to get the worst of everything in here though. (Sorry again about the cap flux Shamis) ugh

Most of you don't know Weirda like we do.

Wierda was "Wierd" in Earth and Beyond (Yes, another refugee)

Who always talked in the third person and came up with some pretty insane stuff.

A real treat to have in a MMO.

Gung like Wierd being in Eve good.

Gung go eat more pie, wave Wierda wave.

A friend of mine who quit playing had the same idea.. (his name was Daidoji). he wanted to use a scorp though. 8 large tech IIs, 4 best named RF bulkheads (True sansha I think)?

Great minds think alike, eh?

I found an officer item on the Shiva/Exodus server(Right in the beging when you could view the enitre Datebase throu the market)...
I don't remember the exact numbers, but I think it gave you the same HP bonus as an Local Hull Bulk Head...
But it also gave you 25% resistance to hull...
Very Happy

I think this is an exciting and ingenious revelation. I am going to start using this immediately on all of my ships. I urgently recommend this for immediate adoption by all pilots of the Amarr Empire.

EEEEK

You do know that You Have no resistances
And that most ship would cream you with Massive hits! (on average 40% more damage from most guns over basic armor and sheilds)
Add to this you are using much more cap for much less boosting..

But hey Whatever does it for you!
