There's obviously helpful and then there's must-fit. There are plenty of things wrong with eve, but at the minute general balance is pretty good. There's no one major dominant fit style, there's no dominant gang makeup. We've got a fair few options of how to play while still being competitive. Eve's never really been like that before. We had RR BS, and nanohacs before that, and nano everything before that. It's easy to forget that everyone used to fit a nos to everything because it was so fucking useful that you'd be mad not to, creating a metagame where you couldn't fit anything but a nos, because everyone else had a nos, making the nos pretty much useless. The way unguided missiles are and the way the tracking formula is, TPs are currently so effective that without strong limitations the game will just degenerate into who can bring the most oversized guns and utility highslot TPs.
