Greetings, my friends.

I hope all is well with you.

So the other day I was doing my usual carebearing when a thought occurred to me. Wouldn't it be nice to own a CONCORD battleship?

Now hold your horses. Before raising your hand to slap me across your screen I am not suggesting CCP seed CONCORD ships as the invulnerable powerhouses that they already are. Instead, I'm thinking watered down weak decommissioned variants. I don't care if they performed worse than T1 ships. I just think it'd be nice to be able to get my grubby hands on one ugh.

Maybe they could be seeded to the CONCORD LP store as ships that have been through tough battles and are now beyond repair. CONCORD has decided to donate them as souvenirs to loyal comrades. They could be labelled as "Decommissioned CONCORD [class of ship here]".

Anyway, just a random babble. Feel free to facepalm now Razz.

Unlike (apparently) 99% of Eve I don't think CONCORD ships are pretty.

Honestly, I don't think they're pretty either. But they are different. Unique, even. Their architecture is very different than the usual faction designs. And that intrigues me. As a ship collector, I'd love to see some way in being able to acquire them.

Edit: I think CONCORD cruisers and frigates are actually not that bad-looking at all.

I have to admit I didn't pay much attention to the smaller ones. It's always Concord BS here, Concord BS there... Wink

The Frigs and Cruiser are indeed quite nice, and no doubt about their uniqueness.

But even if I thought they were terribly ugly, it's no argument against your thread in the first place. Surprised

Basicly, the arguments to give Concord (looking) hulls to players are the same as not giving them to players:
Uniqueness.
From a point of economy and variety CCP should use all their ship-models as much as possible,
but at the same time that might make Concord stand out much less.

No reason to leave the base hulls out of the LP store... CONCORD has to make money too.

Not gonna happen. ..mainly because concord ships have unreasonable stats ...resists alone would make the use of the use of these ships lopsided.

lol, ok what would be the point? most concord ships are close variations of standard ships.. without the massive stats why would you want them? ..to spoof concord?

I have to disagree with you there. I see no resemblance to other racial ships at all.

tbh i always wanted concord ships ( all of them ) to be flyeble by pod pilots.

+1 from me.

when incursion came out with the concord lp store I actually thought they were going to be in the concord store. I was very sad to realize it was only for the 0.0 people....

Cool idea, just make it the same as pirate faction, give it 4 bounuses(one for each race) make it T2
give it battleshipt t2 resists,(basicaly t1) and 50% extra hit points

CCP make up so fittings

job done.

such a thing would make them solopwnmobiles for high skill players.

better to make up new skillbooks.

That'd be cool if they had 5 high slots, and were capable of fitting both missiles and turrets, with no or small bonuses given to each weapon type.
Maybe 5 mid and 5 low slots, to make it possible to shield OR armour tank. Make the BSes as weak as a T1 battleship, but versatile for any player to be able to use with any skillset.
