Supercapitals & Supercarriers Under the Microscope

Supercapitals & Supercarriers Under the Microscope - EVE Online - MMORPG.com

The EVE Online site has a new blog that deals with something that they acknowledge has been a huge concern in the community for a long time: Supercapitals and Supercarriers.

The complaint is stated: "Supercapitals can effectively deal with any size of target, and killing them takes a tremendous amount of damage. What this means is that with very few exceptions, the fleet with the most supercarriers wins."

As a result, the team is looking at ways to even the battlefield. Solutions range from reducing the overall shield, armor and hull hitpoints of supercapitals by 20% to "supercarriers will now have a smaller drone bay and will only be able to put fighters and fighter bombers in it."

More changes are in store for the Titan superweapon, addressing the "uselessness" of super-capitals, eliminating the log out as tactic problem and other balance issues.
