I wouldn't count on BPOs, it wouldn't make the gift special enough if you can just rebuy some at Jita for 5m everytime you blow it up. In best case I'd say you would get the ship and/or a BPC from ORE LP store ...



I'd love it was made as "P5", with a PI blueprint.
Would push people in PI, even those who weren't so hot about it at all.

Correct me if im wrong but isn't this "one-off" ship 'Safe' in High-Sec Empire Space?

You say they will get ganked and yet CCP declared that High-Sec-Gankathons using hit and run tactics without war deccing is deemed forbidden and thus shows some sort of safety for using it in High-Sec!

P.S - CCP, thanks for the ship. Don't listen to those who complain that it isn't good enough. However I would like it if you could gift stuff every few months. Next time a Jump Freighter? Orca? Hmm!

Not so much forbidden, just not profitable.
You can gank someone in high sec before Concord appears as long as you have enough DPS. It just means you take a sec status hit, and lose your ship once Concord shows up to dispense some pwnage on you.

And, now that full production of this robust vessel is underway, I can safely announce that our agents will be delivering one Primae ship to each capsuleer in all corners of the universe, free-of-charge, to try out for themselves. We firmly believe in the proven technology ORE has to offer and trust that pilots everywhere will come to as well, having been given this unique, unprecedented gift to fly for themselves. No strings attached."


I can see that we will get 3 of these ships... One per toon?! Tnx Very Happy

As far as I know there are no BPO's coming out with this.

So if they all get blown up, they are gone. Crying or Very sad


You see, you've just ruined your own story behind this! Why would an organization make something just once? and give it for free? you really are useless at this kind thing arnt ya? What a waste of someones time writing all that story when its clearly bollox.

Aside from story telling, I dont see the point in going to all that effort to have someone design a ship, have someone draw the art for it, have someone enter a new database item which will remain in the database for all eternity providing nothing but serve to fatten the thing?

As pointed out, these resources could have been spent on this we NEED, and it really ****es us all off that you squander your resources like this, srsly.

Would be better if it had a mobile processor on board, so you could just put materials in the cargo and process them in the ship.

I would like this to be a permenant market addition too, so new players who join EVE can work on PI straight away.

I hope it has enough PWR grid to run a MWD or it will be useless in lowsec!

Even though after 4 years of industry and mining I swore I'd never do it again I still find the ORE ships the best looking ships in the game. Hope this one has moving parts Razz

Thank you CCP and keep up the good work

Looks awesome, thanks CCP!
Just hope you'll make BPO's or BPC's available later on so we can use it longer than untill the first pirate comes along and shoots it too salvage.

To the angry mob, stop shouting, whining and crying, if you don't like it you can contract it to me.

Sad I'm stuck out here in the middle of the ocean on deployment with extrememly limited internet, can't use the local internet with personal computers, and can't log in to claim my present.Sad Is there any way CCP can take into account those that still keep an active account even though they can't login to play. Maybe something along the lines of an auto claim or put the ships in my hanger for me?

An alternate scenario:

~~~Player takes free stuff
~~~Player goes red blinky
~~~Player gets 'sploded with "pew" by CONCORD

Remember guys, nowhere is safe in EVE.

A LP BPC would be perfectly fine. As an industrial faction ship, this ship would be great. Then at least you could undock the thing.

It's a very nice looking ship that someone clearly put a lot of work into, that we won't fly very much because it's not replaceable. The Apothesis made sense as a one-off ship. The tournament ships make sense as a one-off ship. The Zephyr kinda didn't make sense to be a one-off but it was a very niche ship so people didn't complain.

A one-off industrial ship of any kind does not make sense in a game where Hulkamageddon and Goonswarm exist.

"Wow, this would be a really nice ship if I could undock with it."

Very nice looking ship and awesome that CCP gives it to us for free, however I'd opt to make this a produce-able ship as well Smile.

To the whiner's you sound like those spoiled brat's from my super sweet sixteen when they get a car:

CCP > Here ya go a free present because we all love you so much!
Player > Whaaaaaaaaat? It's an industrial? I can not be seen in an industrial...! I have no need for this therefore it's useless! This is what I'll do with your free ship, <insert random violence of player vs ship here>.

Dear Ub3r L33t PvP'er,

It has recently come to my attention that you will soon be in posession of a new ship delivered to yourself on behalf of ORE.

I represent certain people interested in the procurement of these ships. Please direct your contracts for the sale of the new Primare class hulls to myself and find yourself reimbursed for the hassle of recieving corporate donations.

Yours faithfully,
Cyrl

==: Tired of recieving corporate donations? Too busy to senselessly self-destruct that free gift?

For the low, low fee of 1m/month our corporation will provide the vital service of corporate donation removal - simply wire the ISK directly each month and contract any and all corporate donations to our CEO - Crylnish Hlar. :==

Moar ISK's for me!

At the moment it isn't reproducible with BPO's or other means. And I'm not aware of any solid plans for the return of the gift ships.

I know Art would like to see them more frequent because a lot of blood, sweat, tears and chocolate cake goes into making a ship.

You should still take them out and about though even if you risk getting blown up, otherwise it is a very unhappy ship never seeing space but just your hangar.

But... It isn't pink?

Gift ships should go to BPO after 6 month, it would be really cool, even if the required minerals are quite high for what the ship is.

As the Primae seems to be intended to help new players get into PI how about making it a tutorial reward?

If the ship's secondary cargobay had a capacity of 30k m3 for PI materials only then you would see the value of this ship rise drastically. The only other way the ship would be seriously used if there would be BPO/C's to build it. But since neither of those are going to happen then it can only really be a colletor's item realistically.

This ship is easily replacable with a badger mark II so it isn't all that usefulSad

Thanks for the free ship though, its the thought that countsWink

What it is really sad is that has to work hard on a ship like this, that if the image looks like, it will be great, so then do not want to lose because there will be no more.

I've already lost my Zephyr by a pirate with smartbombs at empire, it is really sad I can no longer return to a not to be paying a million for a ship that is not worth it.

In my opinion, is better giving away ships really useful and get a bpo. A bpo that would be a good gift, one more ship for the fleet since long time ago.
