So yes, Eve is complicated and difficult. When players are unable to fit their ships in an effective or competent manner (especially when they are new players) can you really be surprised or blame them for it? No, not really. But it does not mean that we cannot make fun of them in the most vicious and malicious way possible. So with that out of the way, here is my request:
Post comments in response to this blog entry linking to the killmails of the most awfully fit ships you have seen or been a part of killing. I would really try sticking to larger ships as it is way too common for a newb in a destroyer to have a retarded fit. Give me your battlecruisers, battleships and worse. I will nominate a few of the best entries and we vote one to be the worst fit ship. The pilot of that ship will receive the ultimate prize of a signed and autographed picture of Spectre along with a romantic weeks vacation to the Bahamas with yours truly.
Seriously though... how incredible am I with Microsoft Paint? To start us off, I am going to add a few entries:
Shinypants' Rokh: http://pcmk2.griefwatch.net/?p=details&kill=883
Whew, good thing you've got that scan probe rig on there Shinypants. It's really going to help when you turn on your Rails and Missile Launchers and... Beam Lasers? The Passive Targeter is also a stroke of pure genius... those rats will never have any idea what is about to slightly damage them.
JoeDaComando's Maelstrom: http://pcmk2.griefwatch.net/?p=details&kill=1027
Frankly I cannot find anything wrong with combining Artillery and Heavy Missile Launchers with Heavy Neutron Blasters. You need to be prepared for anything, right? Joe backs up this mindset by fitting a 100mm plate, armor repairer, overdrive and intertial stabilizer in his lows. Speed and performance! Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too? Finish things off with a target painter, warp disruptor, ECM, tracking disruptor and ECCM and you know that he's an EWAR expert and ready to definitly-maybe-possibly-but-probably-not disable your ship in the middle of an intense fight. Definitely the type of setup I would see a commando- er... "comando" using. We salute you, Joe.
Natasha Hunter's Rokh: http://pcmk2.griefwatch.net/?p=details&kill=1089
As bad as this one is, it still is probably the most sane of the bunch. Sure there are multiple types of lasers on a ship with hybrid gun bonuses but at least SOME of the modules in the mids and lows appropriately complement the entire fit. As a reward Natasha, I am going to stop right here and not berate your ship fitting skills any further!
P.S. Natasha, your Rokh fit sucks.
Give Me More!Surely you can all come up with some stuff even worse than those. Post them below and I will nominate and post the best of the best in a few days.
