A Post about the new Pirate FOBs

Hi there,

I went on a totally unexpected venture today with a Spectre Fleet FC and compiled a report on my findings on the new Pirate Forward Observation Bases. Report is here:

Saanguinee was on one of the first FOBs and can give his side if he find a moment.

AMA!

Re: A Post about the new Pirate FOBs

The FOBs have been updated as part of a recent update. Among other things, they're no longer >40 AU away from the general cluster, but now much closer.

What has not changed is the total waste of time the sites are for rewards.

Fantastic write up. It would be really useful to get some of this information on the wiki as well.

If anyone has suggestions for a (relatively cheap) fleet doctrine to try give them out. I have not yet given up on killing this thing properly with a fleet.

Re: A Post about the new Pirate FOBs

At the moment there appears to be only four practical ways of doing it.

1) 500MN MWD VNI

2) 500MN MWD Cerberus

3) 500MN MWD Ishtar

4) Some kind of RR setup using Nestors/Rattlesnakes

CCP is determined to make these sites group-play. The problem is that nobody really wants to do that. Another problem is the fact of dismal payouts and useless drops. Yet another is the blistering counter response to even just a T1 cruiser. I was going to use a QLBL Omen but will settle for something else.

Another major problem is that fleets are being roasted by the updated spawn mechanics even with extremely high resistances to thermal damage. EWAR doesn't work, long range webs of the tower (70% strength to 250km), structure neuting and other factors make it more difficult.

Even the 500MN ships have issues which reduce their effectiveness over time. The easiest doctrine to use is probably going to be 500MN VNIs. No logi, but links will help.

This seems incredibly cap unstable, are you sure it's not oversized AB which is what's typically used?

Re: A Post about the new Pirate FOBs

Research as of late has indicated the 500MN MWD vessels won't work anymore.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/comments/7 ... ogress_no/

That would be correct, 500MN Microwarpdrives. The Cerberus fit looked like this: https://zkillboard.com/kill/66527061/

The structure now webs to 300km.
