I can't really debate if 32% nerf is or isn't appropriate, but I do question why "0.0 mining paying too much" is the sort of game-breaking thing that requires immediate patching while "invulnerable combat ships" is not.
It is not changing my plans for a Rorqual, but I will find it annoying, nonetheless.
I am not that familiar with Fozzie's apparent fixation on "balance" between High-Sec and Null-Sec, which some people here have been complaining about, but I will put forward my own perception on the matter.
For starters, I do not see why such a drastic nerf (reducing Excavators to 2/3 their original mining capabilities) is being implemented. The Rorqual is a Capital Ship, so should it not perform at the same level as its PvE/PvP counterparts? Before, the Industrial Core just made it a booster ship that was a floating pi+Ķata if one was careless enough to have one on-grid for PvP gangs to destroy.
The recent update not only gave it PANIC to protect its mining fleet on-grid (and the bonuses to shield boosters and remote shield boosters, IIRC), but also turned it into a proper mining vessel. Now the guy in the Rorq doesn't just sit there with the Fleet Boost, and can actually contribute directly to the mining operation through their Drones.
They can even do it on their own (pre-Nerf could mine as much as five Exhumers combined), but now you've knocked down the mining yields for Ore mining (I believe they left the Ice ones untouched) by 32%. That kind of number adds up quickly: now people have to make four cycles to get the same amount of Ore which, pre-nerf, they only needed three cycles to get.
For the high-risk nature of Low and Null-Sec, is such a reduction in mining yields really necessary?

nice fozzie is back after his last ****** idea,now another **** up by fozzie
if you think enough time has passed and people have forgotten your completely useless ideas...it has'nt
and on that note you can refund the isk i spent on these **** drones that move slower than my rorqual and now they are going to mine less than a ship that cost 1/4 that they do

I take it CCP Fozzie is the source of the "Balanced Legion" thing I have heard about the Zkill videos by rhiload (since Fozzie was the guy responsible for the nightmare Svipul).
I can definitely see what you mean by the viability of the Excavators (do they really move slower than a Rorq). If you want to have the Rorq be a Capital Ship capable of mining, you should have it able to function at a suitable level, not at one that a group of much smaller, less expensive Exhumers can out-mine (given the Excavators were once almost equivalent to one Exhumer each).
