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.

All the excitement about the 2nd xmas gift and it's.... a frigate.

Still, at least it's better than the 1st gift and has a consistent theme... a frigate I'll never use and learning skills I'll never be able to use again.

the cup overfloweth....

Unless they dun use the hull to make a new buildable ship. then it's a bit of a let down.

We could be all missing something...

It could have a few million hitpoints, or 99% omni-resists, or anything even remotely useful.

Or, it could be a sub-par T1 frigate with 1 module slot for hacking without the ability to fit probes, tank, weapons, propulsion or anything else that goes WITH hacking.

To be fair, lets call it a shuttle with a module slot because no-one will use it for anything else...

Thank you Santa. Very Happy

Complainers: Dudes... Confused they are not going to give something out for free that is a major game changer or has significant effects. Geezkko its free, which means it will end up on the markets for about 5 to 10 mil... so chill.

"waahh waahhh waahhh i wanted X!"

If you don't like it, contract it to me.

With CCP's new(?) aim of incorporating the Chronicles into an actual part of the EVE universe, im wondering how many people here have completely bypassed the possibility that this ship *could* play an integral role in the future of the game. Sure, the Zeyphyr was nice, and the SOCT shuttle was nice, but they did nothing really to make people consider using them in a tactical manner. The Zephyr was a nice start (probe usage, sleepers ignore it, remember?), im keeping my fingers crossed that the Echelon will become something handy, that you will WANT to have one in your fleet, even if its just for bullying Sansha.

Having said that, i hope CCP dont go too far and require its use.

But ffs guys stop being whiny *****es. Jeez.

Of course, it's like when you were 8.
And your parents have been telling you how good you were throughout the year, you score high 90's in your school tests, and get your spellings right for a grade A+. Your parents tell you they're going to get you something amazing for christmas.
You've always been hoping for that Gameboy with Mario brothers.

The gift arrived, and is placed under the christmas tree. It's a smallish box sized, so it seems likely to be a gameboy.
25th arrives, and you run down the stairs to open that gift.

You feel the delight about to explode in your mind. Wrappers gone, box is upside down.

You got a pair of mittens for Christmas.

GG parents.

its not that we are ungreatful, its just the removal of the learning skills and reimburstment on their investment in spendable SP was just so damned freaking awesome they just shouldnt have even mentioned a second "half" of a present because a stupid frig that 90% of eve wont touch is not equal to half of somthing else so damned amazing.

should have just sed nothing and realsed it on the day as an actual supprise.

tra la la la, la la boned.

thanks for playing.

Yes, it's free. Yes, it's crap. But... CCP spent TIME designing and implimenting the ruddy thing. Time that could have been used on one of the thousand things that we actually suggested would improve the game for a lot of people. I'm not complaining that what I got was crap, I'm complaining that what they spent time on resulted in something 99% likely to be totally useless. I doubt anyone will use this for hacking, they will use a cov-ops or whatever they used before, because it can fit more than 1 module...

Well tbh I didn't expect a lot as we already had the learning skills removed, everything else would have been obscured by that great present anyway. So no, not disappointed at all. Yes a remake of the Moa would have been better but you just can't have it all!
I hope the Purloined Sansha Codebreaker will have t2 stats so I won't have to train Hacking V!! Razz
