I mean, WTF. What is this ****? Ships have to literally look like their namesake now? Sounds like you are just appealing to the WOWtards out there. "Wah, my ship doesn't look anything like a Scorpion"

It is goddam offensive, thats what it is.

So for an encore, we are going to turn the Raven into a fricken 'bird of prey' now? Why stop there?

Feeble minded bull ****, CCP.

If this is really what they were doing, then I think that a lot of ships out there may have to be renamed to different variations of the words "***** Ship".

I personally prefer the old one, mainly because it was my ship of choice for a few years and it grew on me. But I still like the look of the new, more symmetrical one.

I like the shiny, new symmetrical one. CCP found the other wing!

The Scorpion was meant to look like a scorpion since 2003 (that huge tower/fin thing looked like a tail in case you missed it) so you're only a few years late in complaining.

In terms of an "Encore", I'm looking forward to another large graphical update, thank you very much. It's been three years since Trinity, and a lot has changed in those three years.

Heh... lol

No, please don't bring the old Scorpion back, it was ugly.
Also, I do believe the ship was named AFTER its shape, not the other way 'round.

The fact that they do update the models is nice to see.

Personally, i would like the Raven to get a remake that resembles more of a "Klingon 'Bird of Prey'" type ship.

Theres already a Caldari Cruiser that looks close to a Klingon BoP. Don't need a BS to.

Which one is that?

Had to look it up cause i don't fly Caldari.

Its the Caracal. Not identical to the BoP, but close enough.

The Caracal looks NOTHING like a bird of pray, I think you had too much blood wine my friend.

PS: The new scorpion looks awesome, the only problem is that it looks so good it makes me want to use it, but its useless unless ur doing gang ECM or something, which I don't do too much of, I'm more on the solo side.

But still looks damn good.

Really your going to complain about the Scorp???

Many Helios pilots suicided themselves when the model was changed for no reason from a sexy little insect/slave 1 thing to a broken legged hockey player based on the imicus hull...

Don't you go insulting Hockey Players now, or we will come for you in the night with our skates and hockey sticks. I just hope there's a sheet of ice leading up to your bedroom or we'll all dull our skates and then we'll have nothing to cut you with.

I like the old scorpion myself, but I would have to agree with someone who alerady posted. The ship was named "Scorpion" because of how it looked. They didn't name it and then build it assymetrical. I also like the look of the new scorp hull VERY much. It's a win/win for me.

Wow. The Helios used to be based on the Maulus hull? That must have been awesome. My main uses the Anathema instead of the Helios because of the ugliness factor.

Oh yeah ... I liked the old Scorpion model, but I like the new Scorpion hull even more.

New Scorp ist great. A bit to much symmetry for my taste, but better the old model.
And turning the Raven in some kind of BoP ? Hell yeah ! At least a non cripled wing on the left side + some antennas and other pointy stuff...

Thats because the current mammonth was supposed to be a bs hull and the phoon was supposed to be the hauler hull. For some reason they got switched but its ok I like my trashcan shaped phoon.
