  • Ripper Lt needs nerfed badly

    Ok, so as difficult as this may be for some of you to believe, I just had my first EvE against a player with a Ripper Lt. The opponent was much lower level than I am, so every hit was a loss against me. I play titan and defend our HQ so I have a decent amount of health starting EvE, and it pisses me off to no end that an account 1200 levels lower than I am can LOSE to me for a minimum of 800 damage per hit, no matter how much health I had. This Lt is beyond stupid. If it was current health instead of max health I wouldn’t have any issues with that, because even plague is based on current health. There is absolutely zero sense in investing in good Lt’s, a health lineup, or decent BSI stats when someone hundreds, or even thousands of levels below you can LOSE and do that much damage. “Lvl 5000 in your HQ with 30k starting health? No biggie, my lvl 300 account can kill him just by losing.â€‌ This is completely asinine, especially since nowhere in the Lt’s skill text does it say true damage.

    This is my first post on this forum even though I’ve been a member for years, so I apologize for it being a rant, but this is beyond ridiculous.

    A number of defenders retired over this for some reason...

    There are a couple ways to mitigate this. Luna, Sir Benedict if they seat Ripper in RH slot but otherwise, you're just going to to sit there and absorb savage damage from losses.

    As a defender myself, I didn't retire but my EvE activity has taken a bit of a dive. The pressure put upon defenders to hold and maintain everyone else's token bonuses is far too great to deal with the frustrations of being shredded by losing hits. If the match is against a team with a Ripper army I simply opt out and avoid the stress altogether.

    That said, there's no plan to directly nerf Ripper as some of the players who got him stated that they would revolt in ways that could impact the company's bottom line.

    You're not the only one who sees that much damage on a loss as being a bit a game-breaker though.

    This pushed the boundaries of power creep to power vaulting. On the bright side, we're about due for a power vault on the defender side. Not many LTs maintain relevance a couple of years after their release because of power creep and I suspect the same will happen to Ripper eventually.

      As a Ripper equipped Terminator, I can't honestly say I want him nerfed. But, let's be real, Draco is pretty much (almost) the counter to Ripper. Perfect dodges negate the damage caused by Ripper. There will probably be more LT's soon to lower his effectiveness too.

      Nothing is scarier than a beefy Term using Ripper with Bury, Collapse, and Big Gun. Oh, and that's me. Be scared.

        the other way to counter accounts with ripper is to get some good medic accounts.
