THEY ARE KILLING ALL THE THINGS!!

 

http://www.themittan...e-and-murderous

 

So it seems these guys are just going round wrecking all sorts of shit who attack them. 

 

https://zkillboard.com/ship/34495/

 

Something im curious about is this DD style weapon after you take down the extra shield layer, can it track well? Is it like the Ye Oldie tracking titans of old or can you sig it? 

 

Either way looking at the blog and CCP's quote about the AI being periodically ramped up, this could be a really interesting if not deadly threat!! Exiting stuff.

 

Anyone seen them about RvB space yet? If so could be kid of fun to throw a huge bunch of t1 frigs at it to see if they could bring it down!

IIRC they can be sig tanked to an extent, I saw numbers bandied around that suggest a maruader will get hit for 15k, due to bastion mode etc.

I don't really get it. I can see, yes make them challenging etc. etc. but giving them an I WIN button? Is that "good gameplay"?

Depends on their purpose... Of they start doomsdaying structures in nul... They may need such dps.

Sure but a pre-req of doomsdaying structures in null isn't doomsdaying ships. Unless CCP are just letting them flex for the moment.

Eh... What's the point of a rat shooting a structure if the rat can easily be defeated by a lone carrier?

None at all but there are many ways of avoiding being defeated by a lone carrier.

True... But what is a good way that encourages active group participation in those attempting to stop said rats from killing the sov while also creating potential PvP conflict in nul. Still, this is also speculation. This could just be added ambiance.

Yeah man! I just watched a Vindi get alphad while traveling at 900ms max transversal. They are speedy as hell as well!! Seems like 200km kite is the way to go.

Interesting, it looks like you need to salvage to get loot from them. It looked like sleeper salvage, but no clue if the value is high.

Drops no loot and average salvage is about 200k isk. You would have likely spent more on ammo killing it.
