Nice looking ship. I will enjoy taking it out for a spin and seeing what normal production ships are derived from it's hull in the future.

I really like the idea of adding new cool ships to the game. But i think a far better way to do this...would be to give them slots, and make them usable...They would still be 1 run collection items ,and I can find no wrong in having more variety in the ships we see flying in new eden.

I do appreciate the gift though. ty

Thanks for the gift, but I hope you make something remotely useful out of the design at some point, so your art teams precious and limited time wasn't totally wasted.

So, aside from the "space aquarium with thrusters" look, I got to ask if the design comes from a pile of rejected ideas?

Reused ship features Check
underused Modules Check
useless/limited use Check

I hoped it was not something like this, I feel trolled by CCP.

Lame surprise, like getting an ugly sweater from your granny for christmas.

No offense to the guys who worked hard to design and make this, I respcet your effort, just wish CCP would make you develop something extraordinarily unexpected and much appreciated for christmas surprises instead.

I'm just underwhelmed, or maybe I'm just a spoiled brat.

Stats?


Without jumping ahead to see the answer:

1. Only one slot (a mid) for the Sansha codebreaker.
2. Shuttle-sized cargo bay
3. Destroyer sig
4. Frigate HP and agility
5. Rather slow
6. T1 resists
7. No rigs

BFD this is totally lame. At least the Zephyr has an actual role under the right circumstances.

Will likely look very pretty sitting next to my primae, zephyr and apotheosis in my hangar. Hopefully the production model based on this hull comes out soon.

Not being ungrateful, just stating the truth. Very pretty little ship, no practical use.

Cheers!

The concept picture looks far better than the actual model. And its not even a real white color, its more of a light gray.

Nice limited concept ship. I shall stow it in a safe place.

I think many players expect a fully loaded Mercedes from CCP for Christmas instead of a SMART car. Greedy.

The thing is, it's a limited production free ship. If it were fully loaded Mercedes you'd likely /emorage when you went out and lost it and it couldn't be replaced.

It's a collectors item. It says "I was here for Christmas 2010". It doesn't have to do anything as far as I'm concerned.

Maybe next year though they'll consider bonus SP since it seems people can't appreciate the thought and effort put into creating a ship for them. Rolling Eyes

The stats of the Echelon are fairly equal to an average T1 frigate, except that it can only fit one module and no rigs. The module itself is similar to a T1 codebreaker, except it has twice the range and an eight-second cycle time.



Do I have the option of trading it in for a snowball launcher and some snowballs?

Edit: Also, is it invulnerable to sleeper attack? Cause it might actually be useful for something if it was.

I agree w/ except for one thing. I think 'most' ppl want the SMART car w/more USB plugins. Limited ship or not some ppl want to be able to actually use the ship for something. In this case you find a can in your cruiser (after major Sansha battle), warp back to station, get in Echelon, warp back to can (if it's still there) decode/hack pick up contents and warp back to station to get your cruiser. In the process you hope not to get shot at due to the unique nature of the ship, the paper thin hull structure and minimum resists.

I still have snowball launcher w/ (now) melted snowball ammo in my hangar. I don't want to toss it even though it just takes up space and clutters things up in my bay. Smile

Sexy. Purpose-built, T1 hacking module though? Sadness. I've wondered why CCP didn't do a 99.9999% decrease in fitting requirements for CPU/grid on a specific type of module (then put 1 CPU and 1 Grid on the ship) rather than create a new module specific to the ship for this and the scanning ship. Don't get me wrong, I did use those scanning ships a bit and they were kinda nice.

Is it just me or doesn't the Noctus / Primae seem to take a lot of design ideas from the Leonov from 2010? (Rotating section and all)

There was lots of hype about this secret present that "Everyone would want". Turns out its less than disappointing.

In reality it just looks pretty and has no uses. Station spinning FTW? Why couldn't the artists put the effort towards reskinning ships that you guys promised you would do every expansion starting with the Scorpion? I mean this ship looks great and everything, but its pretty much useless outside of well, looking at it.

I also feel a bit underwhelmed. Free is free. But since most secure containers (hacking required to open) spawn rats, and with only the one mid slot for the specific hacking module, this ship is literally useless.

You will never be able to use it for its intended purpose. Even with a sizeable escort, the rats still spawn right on top of you. With frigate hp and destroyer sig, they will have you breathing vacuum as soon as they open fire.

Here's hoping for a useful production version in the near future!

HAHA I thought the same thing.

And people, it's a "Christmas gift". Think of it like getting one of those fancy collectible knives from your grandfather. Yes it has a blade but it's not very sharp and if you loose it you can't just go to walmart and get an other.

If they want to add a usable ship they will in a patch or something. And remember, we are getting one or two player designed ships soon.

Now that you mention it, "We've Scorpified the Dominix and Typhoon" would've been awesome.
