I can't believe what they did to the Maller. One of the bet looking ships in the game and they screwed it up!!

It doesn't even look Amarr anymore!! Where are the soft curves and the golden hues?!

Why did Amarr hire Caldari techs to redesing it?

Why not tackle some of the really crappy looking ships instead of messing with this one? How about the most of the Caldari? How about the Minnie Gallente recons?
No , you had to screw up an excellent looking ship and give us this transvestite of an Amarr ship.

I want the old Maller back!

PS: Oh, btw, for those who think like me, you can still check the info con the Sacrilege and see the old image. CCP can't even get that right! Twisted Evil

I totally agree, the new maller is still also awesome, but not true to amarr style. What about the old he was perfect!! the new maller just should be a new damn different ship!!!

I like the back end, I don't PARTICULARLY like the segmented T3 look, but I could live with it, if they hadn't given it that moronic brow.

I like the new model; but the colour schemes are kind of blah. They should have introduced it as a faction or T3 variant. It definitely has T3 design characteristics.

So does the new Scorpion. CCP have stated that they will redesign ALL ships with T3 characteristics.

Yeah, the Maller really lost some of its Amarr styling. And the Sacrilege isn't all black anymore, which makes me sad... Crying or Very sad

The new Maller model is one of the few good things in Incarna. If you don't like it there must be something wrong with your brain jelly.

The new Maller looks great, can't wait to see the other Amarr ships given a similar style <3

While I don't particularly dislike the new mauler model, if they were gonna pick a race to redesign the ships for I'd have to go for Gal stuff. Those have to be some of the ugliest things I've seen floating thru space. Other than the Thanny and Nyx.. those are just sexy. Razz

I also like the new detailed style.. the old maller was a crap design.. whole ship was cut out of a peace metal. the new one got sections and areas more visible as areas.

I hope they redesign all ships .. because EVE has to go with the time.

The old Maller was an incredible ugly bulky horsehead. I refused to fly one because of the hurt in my eyes.

New Maller (and Sacrilege!) FTW!!! Cool

I don't like the fact that only the maller got changed and that it now stands out of the ammar ships qua look.

Agreed, they also should have given the Crucifier, Aeon and Tormentor hulls a remake as well. And make the Omen symmetrical.

The old maller will be available for purchase from the cash shop soon, along with the pre-nerf Falcon.

I rather imagine alternate ship packs will be available in the NEX store in time.

My Sac looks the dogs now tbh and much better than the horse head of old! But I would agree its design smacks of Caldari rather than Amarr.

The model is fine. However, I want the old Sac color scheme back!

Old model - door handle.
New model - space ship.

Buy a door handle, place it on your desk, leave the new hull alone.

The new Maller looks cool and stylish maybe.
However with a cool look you get bored after a few minutes. If you intend staring at something for hours and days it better has personality, which the old Maller certainly had.

The maller was the one ship I saw in a video back in late 2005 that made me want that thing, and wanting an eve account.

Oh and btw. its pretty much the same with the Scorpion. When my Navy Scorp got blow up after the redesign I was like I didn't like it anyway.

Another issue - at least for me - is that redesigning ships totally breaks immersion. How can a ship that you know for years all of the sudden look different?

Well it's a matter of taste I guess, like so many things. I never even considered flying any Maller hull just for the mere bulky ugliness. Now I've bought a Sacrilege and Devoter purely for the looks alone.

I don't like either Scorpion hull, I'm not going to fly them. And yes, it would have been fun if they had let the old model intact but change the blueprints so we had both versions flying around! :)
