It has been almost two years since the first Tactical Destroyer class vessel, the Confessor, was released. These ships have taken the meta by storm since their introduction and have reigned supreme as the most used ship on zKillboard for quite some time now. Many have complained about their dominance, citing that these ships (one in particular that shall not be named here) are “overpowered” and “cancerous”, spawning many memes to this effect.

That which shall not be named still reigns supreme, almost two years later.

Well, it seems that CCP has finally heard the calls. On SiSi right now are some rather drastic changes to all Tactical Destroyers, with nerfs hitting the Svipul and Confessor harder than the Jackdaw and Hecate. Here are the numbers:

Bonus Changes (Click to enlarge)

Attribute Changes

Fitting Changes

If you don’t feel like delving deep into the numbers, here’s the tl;dr: the biggest change is to sharpshooter mode, which will now provide a damage bonus and extra resistances against enemy sensor dampeners and tracking disruptors. To balance this, sharpshooter has lost its scan resolution bonus, and the inherent damage bonus to all Tactical Destroyers has gone from 50% to 33%. Their mass has gone up as well, coupled with a change in propulsion mode from a passive speed boost to an active one, effectively making all Tactical Destroyers a little slower. The Svipul has lost some power grid, making fitting a little more difficult, the Jackdaw lost a midslot in favor of a lowslot, and the Hecate has received a 200 hp buff to its structure.

Changes to Tactical Destroyers have been desired for quite some time now. Though I’m a little disappointed in CCP for taking so long to do something about them, I must say that the changes they’ve come up with seem absolutely fair to me, specifically the fact that instead of taking the easy way out and neutering all Tactical Destroyers, they decided to apply the strongest nerfs to the Confessor and Svipul, recognizing the fact that the Jackdaw and Hecate, while strong, were not even close to being on par with their Minmatar and Amarr brethren. As a devout lover of the Hecate, I’ll enjoy ganking unsuspecting victims and surprising them with a hull tank.

All in all, this is absolutely a good change for Eve Online. Personally, I’d still like to see CCP take a look at Assault Frigates, as they have been essentially rendered obsolete since the introduction of Tactical Destroyers. The devs certainly have their hands full with the upcoming Ascension expansion, but maybe they’ll get around to addressing Assault Frigates someday. A man can dream, right?

All credit for the graphs goes to u/Mu0nNeutrino, who also provided an excellent analysis here.

  27. The heart of your writing whilst appearing reasonable at first, did not settle very well with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer but only for a while. I however have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do well to help fill in those breaks. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I will surely be amazed.

  29. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards.

This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead.

It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
