wrote a post highlighting a recent bad fit. I was convinced that nobody could possibly fit a ship that poorly, on purpose. I coined the kill a trollfit.
I was wrong. (No surprise there, I suppose.)
The fit is simply that bad. Mister SERGK K is more than willing to fit Navy Issue Megathrons just as poorly.
I'm willing to believe and think that some people will shitfit a Tornado for the lols and the attention. But doing so to a 400M ISK hull? That's stretching credulity a tad.
I'm no expert at fitting, likely not very good at it oft times, but I know I've the wherewithal not to put something together quite as bad as SERGK's Tornado or Megathron. Fit for the bonuses. Don't mix ranges on your weaponry. Two cardinal rules that seem all too obvious to me. Even as a one-day old newbie, I could not see myself fitting a ship that horribly. And thus, it was hard to fathom that anyone else could not see the fail in those fits as well.
Incompetence is rampant in EVE Online. This has been pointed out to me. Several times.
And that's just a drop in the bucket.
But it got me to thinking. Wouldn't it make for a better EVE Online, for everyone, if people fit their ships better? Next time you destroy a horri-fit, maybe spend 10 minutes and throw your victim an evemail, giving them two or three pointers on how to better fit their ships. The evemail might be nothing more than a pointer about fitting same weapon same ammo, and reading their ship bonuses. That guy ends up improving his fit, you might get a bit better of a fight next time and that "gf" in local will have a little more meaning behind it.
