In case you missed it, Surgical Strike is coming to EVE Online on April 15. Here are the details.

A 20% power reduction for all modules which increase shield of armor resistances is perhaps the biggest feature of this update. The goal is to reduce the effectiveness of hit points, but as a ship has more resist slots, this change will be amplified,

“There is excitement here about this approach because not only does it lower Capital survivability, it also diminishes the overall power of logistics and will make modules focused on speed and damage a more attractive option.”

Additionally, several capital changes are coming, including removing support fighter tubes for Super Carriers, bonuses to XL plates and extender for Super Carriers reduced to 200% (titans reduced to 300%), and more.

Subcaptial updates include:

  • All Tech I Battleships - which includes faction hulls - receive 10% increase to base hp and 30% increase to scan resolution
  • Muninn bonuses to damage and optimal range reduced to 5% per level
  • Eagle max velocity reduced to 190 and powergrid reduced to 950
