  1. Scimi V Advanced with 4 Links

    The problem with an LSE is that it increases the sig radius significantly. A scimi's tank is not really based on actually tanking; instead it tries to run its afterburner and dodge incoming volleys. When you put an LSE on, in exchange for the greater buffer you are essentially making the ship wider, making it easier to hit, and ruining the whole idea of "sig tanking." Resist tanking does not increase sig radius, and has the added benefit of using less powergrid (good for new people getting into logi for the first time), and making incoming reps more effective (via higher resistances). As for the four-link scimi, you should not be just looking at "ehp," but also at how much of it is in shield, armor, and structure. Our optimal fit, with perfect skills, has almost the same ehp overall (14,897 4TL vs 14,901 WTM) However, on the WTM fit, most of this is concentrated in the shields, whereas on the 4TL scimi it's split almost evenly between shield, armor, and structure. (WTM fit has 8175 shield ehp vs. 4TL which has only 5375 shield EHP). In WTM fleet, we are shield tanked. Our logi have shield reppers. We cannot rep armor or structure nearly as effectively or quickly, so we want to maximize our shield ehp. That's why a damage control is simply not enough on its own. We've run the numbers on this, over and over again. Adding an LSE makes you an easier target to hit and hurts sig tank significantly. Using only a DCU as tank give not enough shield HP, even if the "total" ehp is the same. An invul offers more shield tank without increasing the sig radius. Our scimi fit will stay as it is. For reference, I used PYFA with all 5 skills and no implants to compare the fits. edit: a word
  2. Ideal Fleet Composition?

    From a good DDD, about 65% of the damage actually comes from pilot's guns, the drones are only there to supplement. A good DDD should be able to do the job without the drones, they are only there to assist. If DDD does little/no damage, then they are only at 35% of their normal speed, and frigates definitely will not die fast enough. And the drone bonuses of the ship only apply to drones you deploy, not any drones assigned to you, so there is no benefit to making a droneboat your DDD.
  3. HHH guide

    HHH Guide What does the HHH do? As HHH, the fleet will assign their medium and heavy drones to you. The best way to apply the damage of these drones is to shoot DPS targets that aren’t shot by the rest of fleet. This way, the drones can spend more time shooting something and less time burning between targets. Although the Vindicator is the best ship for this job because you have webs, good tracking, and high damage, in practice any DPS ship can do this job adequately. If the FC asks you to do something different, listen to FC instead of this guide. True Power Provisional Headquarters (TPPH): First room: Last tagged Osti Second room: Romis (final two tags) Third room, First wave: Romis (sometimes they are tagged, depending on the FC). BEFORE THE END OF THE FIRST WAVE, MAKE SURE YOU AGRESS THE LAST TAGGED OSTI If you are still shooting a Romi when the next wave spawns, the Sansha will shoot at the drones! Most FC’s will remind you of this, but even if they don’t, you still need to remember to switch. Drone aggro is both annoying and dangerous, because when the drones die the aggro tends to split, making the Logi’s job much more difficult. Even if not all of the Romis are dead, it’s better to switch to the Osti and finish the job later. Third room, Second wave: Shoot untagged Romis, then Romi’s in reverse order. Before the wave ends, switch to last tagged Osti (same as last wave) Third room, Third (final) wave: Tag 2 Outuni (tag 1 usually dies quickly enough), then Vylade, then finish off the Romis. Nation Rebirth Facility (NRF) First wave: Uitra, Then Romis in reverse order Second wave: Uitra, then Romis in reverse order Third wave: Vylade, then Romis in reverse order Fourth (final) wave: Tag 2 (either Outuni or Vylade), then untagged Romis, then DPS tags in reverse order True Creations Research Center (TCRC) Just do regular DPS things! Nothing special here
  4. Ideal Fleet Composition?

    Eos will be a bad DDD, because your guns don't do that much damage and the local bonuses only affect your drones, not any assigned to you. Still, the drones are decent just as regular damage dealers and it can provide the other two skirmish boosts while still doing a bit of damage. Claymore and slepnir shield bonuses are irrelevant to us because we have logi so we don't use local shield boosters nighthawk and vulture actually have useful tank bonuses for incursions, but unfortunately they are bonused for shield/info instead of shield/skirmish, so claymore/slepnir are technically slightly better. Optimally I'd probably want a claymore (has one more mid slot than slepnir for extra utility) providing three shield and the speed boost, and then maybe an eos/astarte to provide the other two skirmish boosts while still doing damage.
  5. Broadcast question

    Hey there! So it's quite common, especially for our more bling-fit pilots, for aggro to go onto a pilot, switch off, and then come back once more. In that case, you would be correct to broadcast for shield when you're yellowboxed, broadcast in-position when redbox turns to yellow, and then broadcasting for shield again when you are targeted again. If you are still confused, you can always ask the FC for help when you join your first fleet! (I recommend asking for a newbro speech, to make sure you know everything you need to know). Hope this helps, see you in fleet soon!
  6. Old eve player

    Welcome! Logi pilots, especially with logi cruiser 5, are essential to the fleet and always in demand. Golem is also technically acceptable, but not the best for our purposes. It certainly won't be turned away, but the logi is definitely preferred. Hope to see you in fleet soon! Current info about location and fleet status can be found in "warp to me incursions" chat (without quotes of course)
  7. Low sec incursions

    At the moment, we only run highsec incursions because our fleets are not suited for it and it's considerably more dangerous. Presently we have no plans to change this.
  8. Fits for alpha players

    The guns can be meta 4 version, which alphas can use. And our fitting requirements assume all V skills, you can still fly with us if you're missing a few of the tank skills. If your ship meets requirements, and you can use all of the modules on your ship, you can join us (which alphas are capable of). While omega is better, you won't be turned away as an alpha, and we don't discriminate by fit or skills, only ship category (DPS, Logi, Sniper) and waiting time.
  9. New Alpha State Dec 5th

    Not really for different sites, but for the rokh fit in general, you need to switch the Capacitor rig for a Thermal Rig (Large Anti- Thermal Screen Reinforcer) if your caldari battleship level is less than 4 (which is where most, if not all alpha clones are probably at.) There's also influence fitting, which happens sometimes, you can find a guide here:
  10. Me, Inside the Moon

    one time i tried flying a drake into a moon and my game crashed
  11. Friendly Tagging Suggestion

    How would you tag VVV? There's no letter "V" tag as far as i know, and thats probably the most useful for one for line pilots to have visible considering how much DPS moves around in some sites.
  12. Logi School

    We should make a sticky thread or something so that anyone hosting a logi school could have it on display and potential students could notice it easily. I might come through just so i can get that blue cross badge
  13. Why I fly with WarpToMe

    Why do I fly with WTM? I first heard about incursions from a corpmate who wanted to build a dreadnought in our local c3 (He still shows up once in a while during late-night fleet, his name is Sudakon). I asked him where he had enough money for that kinda thing, and he gave me a link to WTM local. At the time i thought incursions were only for the rich and high-skilled, but he showed me his rokh fit, and I said ,"Well I can fly that". I quickly got my stuff together, got a small loan of 1 bil isk, and bought a hyperion and a skill injector. I finally got invited to fleet, and at first i was very difficult to work with. I wasn't disrespectful or anything, just straight up dumb. Didn't read the rookie guide, didn't broadcast on time, anchored on VVV during tcrc, and did other typical scrub things. But the FC's were patient with me and the isk was great, so i stuck around and got better. Upgraded to a vindi (still my all-time favorite ship), plexed myself and paid off my 1 bil loan, and learned more about the game and about incursions. I was flying with a corp that I liked, but they soon disbanded so i decided to travel with wtm full-time. Not long after I signed up for the training FC program. I was an fc with my old corp, and i decided to put those skills to use. It was only then that I began to appreciate the community for what it is. My fellow commanders, as well as the f1 warriors and logibro's, are some of the coolest and kindest people I've ever had the pleasure to fly with. My most memorable experience was when I lost my shiny vindicator to gankers, not long after I first became a T-badge. It just so happened that I had spent most of my money, and i had to plex in less than a week. Without an incursion ship, I was in danger of losing my subscription. Den Talidar heard of my plight, and swooped in to save the day, granting me a fully-fit vindicator (with faction mag stabs) worth well over 1 bil, as well as 500mil to cover the cost of my plex. When i offered to repay him, he simply said that becoming a full FC with WTM would be enough. I'm around a lot, usually lurking in the help channels or FCing from my fish tank (anyone who's flown with me will get that joke). In short, I fly with WTM because the community is like no other, and although we may have our issues you guys are really nice to me and we've got a great community with resources, inclusiveness, an extensive knowledge base, and most importantly fun! As I say to all the people I talk to in the help channels, hope to see you in fleet soon!
