Hey all,

With Incursion part 1 you can see alot of cool ships in the market, some of which i didn't even know existed. After looking into it, I found out these are reward ships, only coming into the game in extremely limited circumstances.

My particular interest was the Freki; a single 50-run BPC was given out to an alliance iirc. Now, I'm all for these cool tournaments and special rewards, but I shutter to think of 50 of these babies sitting in some hanger collecting dust. Aint right!

Do these ships ever become mainstream? Like, does the BP ever become available? Seems it should enter the market, maybe as an LP reward, like a year after the prize was given. Or maybe it should go out as a BPO and the winning alliance can sell them?




Hey ***h*le.

This is EVE. This is not WoW.

Stop expecting things. You won't get any.

Those hulls are the prize of battle to those good enough to win the tournies. Nobody but the winners deserve them. Especially not you.

If you want a game where everything is available to everybody, no matter how bad and scrub-like they are. Go back to WoW.

I'd rather see ccp implement the ability to show other people your hangers. I'd love to see some of these ships up close and with the new incursion expansion it seems like this idea would fit.

You missed the point. These ships will get suicide ganked in high sec by people who are just trying to have a laugh. So it's beside the point that some have been lost by people dumb enough to pvp in them.


Expensive ships have always been suicide ganked in empire. If they got mods or if they make fancy killmails. Heck if someone wants to gank normal shuttle with Freki in empire then they're free to do so. It's their ship and they choose how to roll with it.

As for people "dumb" enough to pvp in them. Well some people might understand that game is not about pixels in station for them, it's about experiences. Some people value experiences more then permanent goods, that's why tourism etc in real life works. If someone heads to beach/mountains/diving/whatnot instead of staying home and just looking those activities in tv/magazine would you call them "dumb"? For some the money spent -> risk -> thrills -> nice experience, parachuting etc as rl example. Yet not all people are able to parachute ever in their life due to not having the guts or not having the money, that's life.

If player is too yellow and doesnt have the stones to take ship out in fear of suicide gank that's his choise. But he is given a choise, it's not like something is controlling his actions besides himself. If Thyrrax had not flown it to m0o camp back in 2004 it would perhaps still be around. However he made choise to fly it and we are all affected by that choise.

As for not seeing ships just summon the ship details and select the view, there now you can imagine it flying around shooting stuff. Other people just take it tad further and invest isk to actually flying one.

(p.s. Jita 4-4 might not be safest place to parade your unique ship, I've heard people suicide gank a lot there)

I don't think you've ever played WOW, I left that specifically because ppl have to grind endless end game content to get the uber gear, wasn't fun, didn't like it, left, I liked this game because aside from having possibly more skill points than me I can buy as good a ship as you and fit it just as well, without grinding endless end game instances, hoping for the right drop.

This. NOBODY would use an Ishkur if they could use an Utu. It is just THAT GOOD in comparison.
It could be balanced if Utu cost 200 mil.

Try 2 billion or more

CCP just should open up a webshop where the "elite" can buy the frekis and other state/whatever toys for $$ .

People would buy em ... even if they werent available via any other channel anymore. Big bucks inc CCP !

btw ccp I want a cut for the IP !

When someone asks a perfectly sensible question it really grates my cheese to see someone else reply "go back to wow." If someone disagrees with a thread/post state why. Just saying go back to wow is childish.

Ok, for the childish here please tell me to go play wow. Razz
