Lots of my friends have played EVE, and we all agree that the only thing EVE needs to be better is either a new Cruiser that is non tech 2, or an entirely new class of ship in between the price range of tech 1 Cruisers and tech 1 Battlecruisers. So. Anyone have any ideas? Surprised

I'm very, very glad that none of your friends are on the dev team.

No, we don't need another cruiser or class between cruiser and battlecruises, what is needed is a tankier Destroyer.

A tier2Destroyer based off the tier1 Battlecruisers would brobably be fantastic, you then have a small, medium and large tank ship with the same bonuses and fitting style for each ship size for each race.

How about Battlecruisercruiser and then Battlecruisercruisecruiser and keep going until we get the smallest fraction of battle, and the largest fraction cruiser possible.

There is one more ship class I would love, a t2 cruiser based on the mining cruisers that has a covert ops cloak bonus and an agility bonus :)

Heavy Cruiser. wikipedia heavy cruiser

If Eve had to have a heavy cruiser, a gun heavy variant of the T1 cruiser would overlap too much with T1 Battlecruisers. Heavy cruisers would need to become the current battlecruisers (sans Warfare Links) but a bit smaller, and battlecruisers would need to become a bit bigger and mount battleship sized weapons.

I don't think Eve needs heavy cruisers.

We already have HACs...

Indeed... some sort of uber-stealthy, so-heavily-gunned-it's-freaking-funny Jovian battlecruiser that only I can ever build or fly. Personalized ships in EvE -- it's the way forward.

And a T3 IBIS -- would love to see that as "Christmas present" from CCP. Nothing better for my Wallet than people paying utterly ridiculous amounts of ISK for novelty ships.

I think it would have to be a new industrial... between a freighter and above the ITTY V with a cov ops cloak and better capacity than the current tier 2 haulers...

balance out hacs so diemost is not the laughing stock of the hac world, destroyers t2 love or skip it go for t3 modular type destroyers.

haulers got freighters for hauling tons of stuff slowly, haulers got t2 for hauling stuff thorough dangerous areas, and haulers got t1 for hauling stuff in safe areas with paper thin hulls and decent speed. i do not think they need t3 blockade runners with uber cargo capacity and covert ops ability.

aw what tha hell! i shall let out my private thoughts on this matter now.

*a T3 hulk with 6 strip miners that have the range of 50km and has a 3rd bay to hold 5 fighters*Laughing


actually i would like to see some tweaks to T1 ships to make them better. and with the diff size rigs coming out helps that allot!

I'd like unique ship lines for all minor factions and pirate factions, starting with T1, going to T3 and, for those that don't have them yet, faction versions. This would give people more than enough toys to play around with for a while.

Before you can even start to consider adding ships (much less saying that such an addition would be good for the game), you need to consider what niches there are left to be filled — what roles are there left that other ships don't already have? You then need to consider how to best serve thise niche — do we need new equipment or can we create something that boost existing stuff? You then need to consider what kind of ship would be best suited for this new role — something small and fast, big and slow, small but slow?

…and if at the end you arrive at a new T1 cruiser or cruiser/BC-midpoint, then yay for you, but you can't start there without knowing what it is you want to add.

I'm disappointed that 80% of the 'faction' ships are just re-skinned existing ships.

I think fixing some of the currently under used ships would be a better idea. There are plenty of ships in Eve, but some don't get flown because they have a deserved reputation for being rubbish.

There isn't much scope for new ships that don't either render existing ships obsolete, or are so niche that they will rarely be used.

A specialised transport ship with a bigger cargo hold than an Industrial and smaller than a Freighter. Yes I know the Orca can fill that role (sort of) but it would be nice to get a deicated medium weight hauler, and it would be great if CCP made it able to carry rigged ships aswell Very HappyVery Happy.

Ok scrub my earlier suggestion that eve doesn't really need any more ships, I think it needs these.

huh.. I cannot imagine why you need something between BC's and BS's... Not the hole I ever thought existed, esp with HAC's. Now a destroyer that had a tank, that would be usefull for something other then level 1 missions or salvaging would be nice.

How about a new ship, destroyee, the sister vessel of the destroyer, only one module can be fitted to it and its a self destruct button.

Man... CCP should really hire me.

How about the Kamikaze? A T2 Shuttle that does a massive alpha strike to a ship you ram, the ram is a high slot module that accelerates you to an immense speed at your target. Each races T2 Shuttle does the races damage type. Upon collision your pod is flung away from the explosion for 10 seconds at the same speed the ram module accelerated you to your target.
