Gallente T1 ship line is inconsistent.



Tristan is the highest tier frigate(most slots, best fitting room) yet the counterparts are missile frigates like Inquisitor, Kestrel or Breacher that also use same hull for T2 CovOps frigates.

Incursus should take place as highest tier in Gallente T1 frigate line as it is a pure hybrid platform and same hull is used for Assault Frigates.

Your probably refering to the T2 varient hulls.

Bombers usually consist of the non top tier frigs with the exception of the tristan and the nemisis, while the incursus is the AF hull.

As far as I see it, the Incursus is the better ship than the tristan. Plus the tristan makes sense as the bomber cause of the missile slots. Changing something as trivial as a tier item will only confuse people, leave it be.

That is the point if this thread - inconsistency in T1 frigate hulls. Tristan is the top tier T1 Gallente boat which should not, Incursus needs to be instead.

Bump

Could this be pushed through CSM to CCP as Gallente frigates are clearly out of the line?

The problems with T1 frigates go way beyond this.

Definitely.

On the other hand, CCP is most likely not going to make any larger scale balance changes as balancing isn't their priority nor much of an interest so this little and obvious issue might get an attention.

Tristan is actually pretty damn good, better than a top tier hybrid platform would be. Takes a lot more skills due to split weapons but its a powerhouse thanks to the new rocks.

T1 frigates are suffering badly from the tier system with only top tiers seeing any real use.
While the idea of a "small change" may look enticing it will still require the big picture to be examined so one might as well do it all at once.
