Now that we're getting a Sansha capital ship, I think the rest of Eve should get some fun ships to fly around.

I'm thinking along the lines of tech 2 pirate ships. You know, like the ones that scram you in belts and generally annoy you with their ridiculous resistances? Yeah, those.

I request we get:

Interceptors
Assault Ships
Heavy Assault Ships
Fleet Command Ships
Marauders

??

Does this sound awesome? Given CCP's love with throwing gang links on stuff, let's put in some kick-ass Fleet Command ships with a huge bonus to warfare links.

After we're done with the tech 2 pirate ships, we can start exploring tech 3 pirate ships...

Make the ships differ radically from empire faction T2 ships

for example Interceptors: Less speed (-30%) but enough tank to survive longer and radically reduced dps (-50%) with LONG ewar (scrams , webs getting +100% range bonus)

This would make them different and still useful, who cares if you can't catch that Dramiel with speed when you got a 30 kilometer web with 18 kilometer scram, you just need to get "close enough". Their slower speed would offset the scram & web bonus, staying near enough / getting there would be harder and while they could survive longer, they'd still be cannon fodder if caught by anything bigger than another frig.

Also, they wouldn't certainly be "I-WIN" buttons because they would have next to no firepower.

I'd rather have CCP make all ships a viable alternative to fly. Now half the ships (mostly lower tiers) are hardly ever used because the inferior stats and slot setups or bonusses.

I'd love to see T2 pirate ships which are radically different to their faction counterparts...even to the point of having visible hull modifications, and totally different roles...

Also picking different ships to fit the T2 pirate variety - i.e. instead using the Atron hull to build their interceptors, Guardian Angels instead chose to use the Imicus hull...

Bit of variety in chosing ones interceptors would be nice :)
