Kasapina, EVE miners cannot be fighter capable. The barges have no turret slots, only drones, and while everyone talks about the Hulk, the T1 barges can't even stand up to cruiser-level belt rats. Yeah you could mine in a bc or bs if you want your yield shot to crap, and for some weird reason you like mining with that over running missions with that.

Drew, I don't even think remote repping works in lowsec or null. The only way to really stop ganking barges is to control entry to the system you mine in. For some weird reason escorting doesn't really exist as a concept in EVE: it's not just barges, but couriers as well.

Chris, if that ship was a rupture, you'd be dead. Dramiel is a pirate frig, and while it's good it's main strength is it can easily dictate range and terms of engagement. It's not a dps powerhouse.

The changes I'm not really caring too much about except that I'm worried about the short term market crash that may come when people adjust to lower yields from mission loot and insurance.

I like how someone earlier tried to compare this game to WoW and other mmo's. Thing is, This isn't WoW. It's stupid of you to think that you should be able to do everything the same from one ship to the next, that's like saying that in life a battleship should be able to launch hundreds of craft as if it were an Aircraft Carrier, or that a Skif should be outfitted with massive turrets just because the same person sailing it used to sail a battleship.

In WoW, you may be able to mine, or farm, or whatever you do, and still be battle ready, but your also on foot. In life, If I wanted to, I could go digging somewhere and pull a glock on someone as well, that doesn't mean I can outfit an oil rig with a missile launcher and 50cal turrets.
