i recently engaged in petition dialog with the moderators about a pirate cormorant i saw ingame...
it had the full 8 turret slots compared to the 7 that the current cormorant has, as well as a sweet camoflauge pattern on the hull, i have requested of them that this coromorant be introduced to the community, perhaps along with interesting destroyers from other factions, as a true tech II destroyer, (i consider interdictors to be a separate class of ship entirely rather than tech II destroyers, how can they be tech II when they aren't any stronger and are arguably weaker...)

i propose that blueprints for this special cormorant be introduced to the community or that the ship itself be made available in general markets, it is a cool looking ship, the added symmetry of the guns is very nice in a game with so much asymmetry. i see no harm to doing this, there is definitely little creation needed on the part of the devs since the ship obviously already exists...

all this action would do is add yet more to the great diversity of interesting and very functional ships in the lower classes, which is a benefit...

so please back me up on this one, if you have requests for other NPC-only ship to be made public you may post them here...

i do realize there is some magic to having the NPCs have access to ships that the community does not in order to prevent the feeling that players have everything and there is nothing new, but it stands to reason that after a ship is out in the open long enough, especially to pirates, that the general populace would be able to acquire them as well...

perhaps its time for the NPCs to get new rides and to let us play around in their old ones...

I agree on the general idea, not just the cormorant but all NPC ships.
Hell, should even be possible to get concord ships.
Lets face it, NPC's have the nicest ships in came, just release them to the players, would be nice to see more people use them too, most of the faction ships out there atm aren't even rare anymore so a few more can't hurt :)

Yea, I love the Cormorant its such a beautiful ship, even if it didn't have much more stats the sweet camou-look on some of our favorite ships would be very nice, I personally don't get why all faction ships have to have better stats, why can't we get some Low LP, low cost faction ships with equal or around same stats as there normal varient but with those sweet paint-jobs...

Bump for more ship variants!

To my knowledge, there are only faction Frigates, Cruisers and Battleships - please plug some holes.

If nothing else, they are a great isk sink...

I'm not so sure about giving out concord ships, but other faction ships sound good. /signed.

More faction ships entirely, through the long-standing LP system please.

I love the cormorant but with shiny new paint job even better. More veriety in low class ships would also be shiny.

I sure hope CCP gets around to releasing more types faction ships
I also hope they wont mind looking at the current faction ships a little just to make sure they are keeping up with the regular ships. Many of them seem to be too hard to fit and dont really have any uses, but maybe thats just me not getting the point or not trying hard enough :D
Anyways I love the EoM ships and I dearly hope that they find time to release some more faction ships into the game, though I perfectly understand that its not at the top of the list.

thanks all for support, i understand as the developers try to add new ships to the game they have to make sure that lower classes of ships (frigs, dest) don't surpass the higher classes (cruisers, bc) when they add new ships, so that makes it difficult, but surely at the very least they could release new NPC ships to spice things up and release some of the already existing ships that aren't player 'ownable' to the general public that are replaced with the new npc ships...
