Attention: Devs.
If you see a ship being mentioned repeatedly below, might want to put a small amount of resources into a new skin. Thanks.


Players, this is a poll based on asthetics alone. Please do not mention any opinions about balance, ship performance, etc. Thanks.

I'll start.

Moa and Stabber muck up the cruisers.
Raven has got to be the ugliest Battleship, although the Apoc gives it a run for its money.

The rupture looks like a flying office block.

I always thought it looked like a nail gun. You know, one of those pneumatic nailers construction workers use.

And the typhoon, while being my favorite battleship, is spirit-crushingly ugly to fly. It's like piloting a feeding whale.

I see where you are coming from on the Typhoon, but I think it kinda grows on ya. I think it has character. I mean, its no pretty boy like the Maelstrom, but at least it doesn't look like it was built out of Duplo blocks like the Tempest.

that's not beutiful, but it's also not the worst. there are alot worse looking ships in eve. I would say some versions of the proteous are the worst. then there is the sansha mom, can't think of the name right now, but that thing just looks terrible.

Raven.

As many raven, raven navy's, a golems are out there, they sure are quite an ugly ship in their structure.

I mean, common, it's like half a wing with a clipped wing and a stub with a nub coming out the front.

Just weird and ugly.

Moa and Stabber.

As for the Raven, while it may not be incredibly pretty I think it looks alright and unique. I wish theyd switch the Rohk and Raven models tho since itd be much nicer looking at the space train.

The Retriever after it was changed about 8 months ago.

It looks like a small infantry of Amarrians used my ship as a toilet!

Multiple Incarna clients kill this machine*
HD 5870, Phenom 945, 4GB RAM, etc.
Drivers all up-to-date.
Not subpar hardware

* It's actually fairly quick logging into the game from Start Menu/desktop shortcut, so yeah that's an exaggeration. The client restarting itself after a disconnect/socket error, though, takes literally 2 or 3 unresponsive minutes. This fun new feature coincided with the release of Incarna.

Moa....</thread>



The butt plug design of gallente can't touch it. Not even the modern art piece known as raven does.

Nagflar....tough contender for the moa but moa still edges it out. damn things looks like a pos tower idea that was thrown away. Then they dumpster dived to dig it back up lol.

Moa > Stabber > Blackbird

What I think are ugliest, in that order.

I'm thinking there was mass amounts of drugs going around during the design period of the Moa.

I don't mind the stabber, I guess im just used to it (or thinking of another ship).

Moa > Blackbird > Exequror

Not many people fly Exequror/Onieros so I guess it won't be much of a change.

Everyone flies blackbird varients and the Gila varient for the Moa is beast so fix those.

EDIT: Also the Celestis is very ugly.

what OS and what speed is the RAM? the CPU and the video card should do fine with 4-6 clients running simultaneously.
if you are using any version of vista that may explain it, it's not very good at dealing with the resources it has. and if you have 4GB of ram but it's really really slow then it will not really matter since it will not be able to read it very fast at all.
my suggestion is if you are running more than 3 clients on windows 7, upgrade to 8GB. it's not all that expensive any more and well worth it.

The Aeon is not ugly!
It's textures seem pretty high-res, and if it were symmetrical it would look too much like a Providence Laughing

I didn't like the Aeon at first, but once I took a closer look at it, I enjoy its design a lot. Then again, I also like the blackbird, which is apparently unpopular. So maybe I have no taste.

The Typhoon.

Dear god, the Armageddon looks just GREAT. The Scorpion is like the best looking ship out there.

But what was the designer thinking when he though of the Typhoon ?

"Oh hay I have a spare pipe from my washing-machine, what can I do with it ? Oh wait, this, is going to be the best minmatar battleship, ever."

Really, peoples barely fly it because it's somewhat efficient. But the look of this ship...makes you say "WTF is that"

I actually quite like the stabber, at least as a vagabond. But you're spot on when it comes to Moa. It wins the ugly competition, but only by a small margin ahead of the rupture.
