Tactical Destroyers have been a great hit since their introduction. Not only do they dominate small-scale warfare (with Svipul by far the most popular ship), they brought the new exciting mechanic of mode switching. This allows T3D’s to be used in a wide range of interesting strategies and uses. However, as much praise and joy these new hulls bring, there are also a lot of concerns.

Are these ships too powerful? What about assault frigates and their role?  Are they too cheap? The unintended insta-warping after switching from speed mode to other modes? These and many more questions CCP wish to answer and they are asking for the communities help. On the 1th October CCP Fozzie posted this annoucment on the EVE forums:

FozzieHey everyone! We’d like to try out another way to gather specific feedback, and we’re looking for your help!

All four Tactical Destroyers have been out for a little while now and we’re of course planning on making more adjustments to the class over the coming months. To help with this task we intend to put together a focus group on T3Ds that will help provide feedback (especially subjective feedback) on the current state of these ships and on potential future changes.

  • We will use this forum thread to accept applications from players who wish to participate in the focus group
  • The decision on which players are invited to the focus group will be made by CCP
  • This focus group will not receive any secret information, and therefore will not be required to sign any NDAs
  • We plan on making the logs of the focus group chat public for everyone to view. Everyone can see what is being discussed, but only focus group members and CCP devs can actually talk
  • When selecting focus group members, we will be looking for people who can demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and provide reasoned and calm feedback. We also want the members to have significant experience flying the Tactical Destroyers and to have strong knowledge of EVE gameplay, fittings and balance
  • The focus group will take place in a Slack team, so members will need to be able to use Slack

We are hoping that using a focus group of this type will allow us to quickly and easily gather feedback from players who have a strong breadth and depth of experience with the ships. If this group goes well, similar formats might be used for other focus groups on other topics.

Focus group members will not be forced to attend any meetings or to pass any minimum activity thresholds. People in any time zone are welcome.

If you’re interested in participating in this focus group, please post in this thread with an explanation of why you feel that you would make a valuable addition. We’ll provide a list of members and details of how players can observe the chat logs before we start inviting people to the Slack team.


This is a whole new approach from CCP side for communication with player base. Let us a hope those who are sucsessful in their applications will help to bring interesting and objective opinions to help CCP with their never ending quest of balancing the PvP Ecosystem of Eve.
