Being all about outfitting in specific ways, with certain gear, is what made Eve Online the greatest interactive screen saver with spreadsheet functionality known to man instead of a fun MMO.

Not being able to roflstomp level 50 enemies with the same setup you had at level 1 doesn't make the game immersive enough for you?

NO. If you can't change your loadout to fit the mission, you deserve to fail. The game is easy enough as it is. I don't want it dumbed down so you can play the game like a clown.

I enjoy complex, in-depth games that require you to make skill tree choices, ship/player loadout choices, and skill-bar choices. If it is just too darned difficult for you to take a couple new BO abilities to kill that especially tough boss, you shouldn't be playing MMO's. Get an XBAWX and go play COD.
