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_= Twisted Evil.

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. Laughing

I know some folks have been begging for T3 frigates, mentioning them here to placate them. Laughing


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?

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. Very Happy )

This is something i have thought about before with including PC games with dust.

Let PC games control the turrets/stationary ships/guns/weapons on the maps.

they're not supposed to be much better. what, you want to make the rest of the ships in the game obsolete by CCP making new ships that WTFPWN all the others all the time? you know what thats called? its WoW. I was there when the burning crusade made all 60 purple gear worthless to a outer world 63 green. you want WoW? Its ---------------------->

There are still lots of niches to be filled by t2 ships without the need of "uber ships that make everything else obsolete"... i can think of some kind of "smuggling ship", somewhat like a blockade runner but faster (i mean, more agile) and with less cargo (we don't actually have much choice in the range of 1-2k m3), perhaps some bonus to AB/MWD/velocity instead of defense.

Also, a profession-ship would be useful, a fast t2 battlecruiser with a couple extra midslots (taken from highslots), a half-guns-and-100%-damage-bonus (just like sansha) and a role bonus to archeology/hacking (and of course an appropriate pvp-nerf so it won't become the uber pvp ship, like an EW weakness from the Marauder or quite a stretched PG amount so you can't stack shields and heavy weapons)

I miss new ships too, there are some holes that could be filled to.

For example the only EW platform that has a battleship hull is ECM.

Why not a Tracking Disruptor Battleship for Amarr, A Remote Sensor Dampening Battleship for Gallente, A Target Painting Battleship for Minmatar, A dedicated Salvaging ship still needed,

New ships are nice, but I think there's a lot of things that have more priority.

Tech 2 drake surely is what everyone wants.

Tech 2 Hurricane on the other hand.
