Yes I'm aware of the new ORE freebie, no this isn't a topic about it. Rather, the new ORE ship made me realize something about EVE that I miss.New Ships
At first, the new T2 stuff rolling out was cool, even if the hulls were the T1 ships with a new paint job and some extra engines or antenna. Then we got Destroyers (oooo!) and Battlecruisers (aaaahhh!) with Exodus.
Later we got _DREADNOUGHTS_ ...and there was much rejoicing...
Then came Carriers and, the then called, Motherships (now called supercarriers).
Then at last came the =_TITANS_=
Somewhere in all of that we got Freighters and Jump Freighters...response was..meh. Big hauler, no slots..JF got more response due to being jumpable and T2.
Finally we got an additional tier of Battlecruisers and Battleships. Some were meh, others were \o/-tastic.
In between all these releases, we got most of the other T2 ships filled in...capping off with Jump Freighters, Black Ops, and Marauders.
Since Revelations I (Nov 2006) we've gotten: Orca
Granted, the T3 cruisers are awesome, and came out with Apocrypha (March 1009), but they're not as accessible as T1 ships are.
I miss the shiny-ness of new ships, and lots of them. There's a number of areas where new ships could be added. A second tier of Destroyers...or maybe a third type of T2 BS. Some T1 frigs still don't have a T2 counterpart. The tier 2 BCs still don't have a T2 ship (Flagships anyone?).
T2 Dreads and Carriers might be interesting as well. Can you imagine that though? Hell, I'd emorage at losing a 100bn isk dreadnought....I can't even imagine what a T2 Titan would cost.
T2 POS Towers....not really ships, I know..but still. Wouldn't that be a case of chicken and egg to contemplate though.
I know some folks have been begging for T3 frigates, mentioning them here to placate them.
While there are a few places left to squeeze in some new ships, it feels like we're reaching the end of new ships & modules. T3 is really customizable, and even if you release T3 for each level of ship class, it'd really still be just 5 ships per race.
So what to do?EVE PLAYER PILOTABLE COMBAT MECHS FOR DUST!!
Let THEM hire US in turn. :)
(Yes, I know it was random, but somewhere along the line I lost my train of thought and point...but mechs would still be awesome.
