Thanks for posting this!
I think the fraylock will suck and the amaar logistics will be OP
I think the amaar was kind of UP before, I'm still gallente, but I think the Amaar changes were needed.

The Amarr Logi won't be OP. I made a rambling post on our site about it, but the gist of it is that it will be good...but hard to fit. It just doesn't have enough CPU/PG to fit everything you want. That sidearm takes up a lot of CPU/PG, and will be a big sink for it. Also, you'll have to split the damage mods if you want to buff both weapons...which is also very expensive.
Heck, even on my Gal Logi I have a hard time, and its got CPU bonuses (also more base PG than the Amarr Logi).
For the good...the sidearm is great to have. It also actually has traditional Gallente armor tanking bonuses (which is a wth thing to me....for those who don't know, Amarr armor tanking has to do with buffing resistances, Gallente is buffing repair rate; at least those are the ship bonuses for the races)...bonuses to self-repair rate (besides the base logi bonus...we're just not talking about that lol).
So, pretty much fit it as a Gallente Logi with one less Equipment and Low slot, and a Sidearm.
Flaylock and Caldari Logi needed to be nerfed. That was a given. Too many people abusing the Flaylock (and come on, it was just OP), and too many Assault players using the Cal Logi suit (and still playing as an Assault player...don't think I'll ever look at a Cal Logi as a Logi even after the patch). Contact grenades...I get annoyed by them, yes, and a nerf to carry capacity is probably good...as long as it also applies to the Fused Locus grenades.
1.4 is supposed to be a bigger patch, and more focused on vehicle balance. Maybe even introduce the Pilot suits and/or the Amarr and Minmatar vehicles (though I doubt the latter will happen yet; same for the MAVs and other dropship classes). Read somewhere 1.3 is a change to a monthly patch cycle, so smaller, more frequent patching with larger ones periodically.
