Thank you CCP for yet another double-edged gift, giving me a choice of using it for hangar beautification or dodging suicide ganks of all the players out there trying to increase the value of their very own Zephyr by reducing their total numbers in EVE.

If you are so keen on giving out unique items, i suggest that you at least restrict yourself to BPOs of these things, since you have no problem having a limited number of those floating in the game yet inaccessible to younger players. You should make it a proper gift and just seed it in some loyalty store or something.

At least your last year's gift, while pretty to look at, wasn't all that very useful. And there will be even fewer of Zephyrs available since its now one per account and not one per alt, raising its unique value and giving even higher incentive for griefers.

I give this "gift" one thumb up for pretty ship design and abilities and thumb down for your choice of delivery. DO you guys play your own game? You've just managed to dampen my holiday cheer. ugh

Thank you for the gift, CCP. I think it's time for this newbie to start exploring wormhole space.

And remember guys: probe away at a safespot/planet until the griefers die down, and remember that it's too small and fast to get locked down by anything short of a bubble.

Just to make everyone aware - you need to be REALLY careful when you repackage a Zephyr. Those sails are prone to getting ripped and it is impossilbe to get a good quality seamstress in deep space...

Other EVE Player: It's a scam,, CCP is out to screw us.
Other EVE Player: You suck, CCP.
Most EVE Players: Cool, thanks!

To CCP: Cool, thanks!

This is such a cool looking ship is there any chance we will get to see any more ships like this (i.e. with sails and what not) in later in the game for us to build? I think its such a cool design.

This ship should practically instawarp. It's mass is only 5000kg. A shuttle is normally 1600000kg! Same inertial modifier too.
(Note a pod is apparently 32000kg, I wonder if they add them for 37000kg all up, or does it weigh less than a pod!!)

Whoa idea how about a ship class thats just like a pod addon but it gives you a massive speed boost and reduced target signature. so your just a supped up pod.

i'll admit it looks funky, any chance of getting its spec it high - low slot lay out and bonus if any before the 16th

Since the ship seems to be aimed at getting noobs to probe, any chance of giving it like a 50% bonus to probe strength? (Still less than a Heron with two rigs and a Sister's launcher).

Noobs don't probe because
a) they don't know how, and
b) a blip that would take an experienced prober 30 seconds takes a noob an hour and a half of blood, sweat, and tears, which means that
c) they have a disincentive to learn how.

Do we lose the ship after the 6th january?

hey ccp?

you should also make this ship be something each character can get once for free by doing the exploration tutorial.

I just think that would be neat. : )

also don't make is this same ship, make it a weaker one? or one with a different color?

basically, based on this ships design, ORE makes a copy of it, not quite the same , and thus not the same ship at all, but one that they can at least give one prototype to each pilot that is interesting in exploration.

and make it so you can't do it more than once.

prolly just need to add an aftermarket exhaust on it or some new rims


Also, thanks CCP, it seems I will be learning the basics of scanning sooner than I thought.
