Improvise, Adapt, Overcome. Ewar mechs can have a decent tank if you are willing to not have a full rack of Suppressors and ECM's. The fact that there are pretty much De Facto standard fits with ewar mechs is not a good thing IMO.
Oh, don't worry, if those ridiculous changes ever get pushed live, we'll change our fits and fleet composition accordingly. Not like we had to do it 5-6 times already in the past When the fits we saved the points for almost 10 months got nerfed right before we wanted to field them because of someone else's inability to 'adapt and overcome', we didn't whine for a year unlike certain individuals, but moved on to the next best alternative.
However, those changes will kill EWar as a class, and diminish EWar bots usage to 0 (except Demob Zenith, but it won't matter much considering that tanked DPS is going to be the king in this case). So, please handout the respecs for people who spent their valuable time and effort skilling up EWar to be able to do a single PvP role, and who will be left useless in EVERY area of the game because of your ingenious balance insights.
You, however, will find a new thing to whine about, believe it or not, after those changes are introduced.
Actually, this topic has been around the 2+ years that I have been playing Perp.. And I suspect much longer than that. You are correct that it is a small minority of people that post on the forums about such things as this. But there is also a very small minority of players in Perp that have enough experience and knowledge of the game to be able to have an educated opinion on the matter.
Care to link anything that is not yours/Burial's/Merkle's/Lucian's whining?
Your 'educated opinion' is summed up in this article. You've shown the worth of your experience with all your recent fit suggestions in this thread (why are we even having this discussion? Oh right, because devs paid attention to yours 1 year long whining ). Outside of Lemon, Mongolia, Styx, Yoslin, Siddy and 5-6 other veteran guys, I really doubt anyone can even be referred as educated opinion of experience, especially when they are talking about their-dear-selves.
If you really think you are so good, why don't you show it on the battlefield or provide us with the proofs?
I believe pvp could be very exciting and the game has what it takes. But this is game is ruined and we all know by who, it´s by corps like CiR, -77- and PHM. - by Fu ManChu
