Will they still ever make it to the game? Or did the devs changed their minds?

Considering that HA cruisers are still very new, and that Shiva is now imminent, maybe the devs simply don't have the time to think about them right now, don't you think?

They have models for the ships going around now for many months now.

You can especially see this around Amarr region gates. You can see ruby red Sarum Captains in beautifully modded Inquisitors that can only be a preview to one of the Amarr bombers.

You can see in one of the missions, the Khanid Slave Trader ship, a hopped up black Arbitrator with blue lights. Note that the same Khanid Officer in that special Punisher eventually became the model for the Vengeance Assault Frigate.

Also patrolling the system gates, you can see silver blue Omens of the Sarum Navy, and in the Khanid region, the black Omens of the Khanid Navy. Looks like possible Patrol Cruisers to me.

Patrolling the same gates, you can also see a modded Arbitrator of the Sarum Navy which has additional missile launchers above and below.

The Malediction itself came from another gate guardian, the Amarr Navy Sergeant.

From what I can see now, the T2 models are already in the game, with at least two possible T2 Arbitrator types. They should just hurry it up.

I have a feeling bombers will be too powerful. Train up for them now, as they will be nerfed 2 weeks after release!

...no... bombers will be as powerfull as they are suposed to be, only problem is that they are slower (or so I supose) than the Afrigs, and maybe as tough as a inty (or a bit more), so I belive that it will be rather balanced.

with any luck, bombers will be awesome.
hugely powerful missiles (like torp powered or so)(but shorter ranged), fast locking speed, low sig radius, almost no defense (same as a frigate or maybe an inty), hardly any cap (just enough for the MWD to fire once maybe twice so yu can charge in), quite slow compared to inties, but faster than assualt frigates.
Thats what i'd like to see anyway.

"CCP announces today...Three Free days given to every subscriber of EVE MMO, due the MASSIVE Server Crash that occured at 1430 Eve Time, 3rd Nov. 2004 "

^^^^ Reality....if they release on 3 rd of November.....
Shiva is just not ready....Read the boards....Yeah, of it is.... but not all... CCP needs to admit they need another "4 Weeks or so..." and still get out before Christmas...

Shim go look at the bombs on the market. to me it seems like the bombers will be frigs firing heavy missiles.

I take it...you don't read all the negative feed back from the Player Testing Forums QuestionWink

Shiva is not ready for full release....and if they do a Partial Release ....well, like any other MMO...that just makes things worse....because we will need patch after patch to fix small stuff....and BIGGER patches...to add more stuff (promised with initial release) later on...
