Would be fun to know, guess it’s hard to prove though.
Im still happy when I come by one of my own smaller ships with largs riggs in :)
Is there something else that screams “old ship”?

Something that screams old ship?

I expect that'd be a cruise missile toting Kestrel. I know a few of them did exist in some players hangers after the missile ammo changes back in, err, '04? Dunno if the dual (or more) MWD ships still exist (but not flyable) or if the fittings were stripped from them.

The only way you're going to find out is if a Dev reads this and runs a DB query for you out of curiosity, but I don't think they can do that any more, not like they used to.

Definitely not "oldest", but among the ancient are any Guardian-Vexors that may still exist and the Veldnaught.

Undocked? And you didn't kill it? I'm a dirty carebear and even I would take a shot at a guardian-vexor!

He had a lot of friends around him. 3 Guardians as well.

A friend of mine found a Thorax in one of his hangars a few weeks ago that, no joke, still had the old graphics scheme applied. The OLD one. So that's probably pretty ancient.

I've got a Probe that I've probably had for several years as a scanning ship, no idea on the actual date. Large rigs (though I had the ship a good while before rigs even existed).

It's one of those ships you buy when you start the game, then realize what ship bonuses are and buy a Rifter, then stash the old ship in your hangar forever. Then later you find the ship and think "Whoa, cheap scanning frig!" and fit it with rigs and a Sisters launcher. :D

Joke or not, I call bull****. I'm sure someone else will happily explain why.

As for old ships, there's a bestower around with 2 midslot warp core stabs, I'd say that's a good sign it's quite old.

Should be tons of cruise missile stealth bombers around and a bunch of 7 gun eoses.

EDIT: Found a guy who had chribba confirm his bestower and cruise missile blackbird.

I reactivated my account 2-3 months ago. I had a rifter with cruise missiles until I accidentally unloaded them. I might have a rupture and something else with cruise or torps loaded

The oldest ship in the game is probably an Ibis owned by some guy with a canceled account that hasn't logged in since the 2nd day of Eve. I also wouldn't be surprised if he rage quit to go play WoW again after failing to figure out how to shoot stuff. Laughing

I still have a caracal with cruise missiles and dual MWD from 2003, we used that setup to 'dive bomb' battleships and other cruisers. I know its illegal to even activate the ship so its sitting in hangar out of nostalgic purposes.

I still have a couple pods in my hangars and my first shuttle, so those are April 2004. Pretty sure people have similar ships sitting somewhere from '03

What were CCP's mechanics for forcibly adjusting those eoses? I know you couldn't undock with them, but what else was done to force people to "update" their fittings?

Well it would be the first ship created that didn't get asploded.

Except that Eve pre-dates WoW by roughly a year, last I checked. Rolling Eyes

Going by GameFAQs EVE Online went live May 6, 2003 while World of Warcraft didn't go live until November 23, 2004. That's a bit over a year and a half difference. Very Happy

Technically that would mean he would have rage quit and gone back to Everquest, since in 2003 EQ was the big dog on the MMORPG block.

I still have the first CovOps ship that I ever bought, large rigs and all. It is almost 4 years old now and still sees use in the field.

Rigs didn't always come in small/medium/large sizes - they used to be only one size. This made fitting rigs to cruisers and frigates a pain in the arse because the rigs were very expensive (roughly as much as large rigs are today).

When small/medium rig sizes were added, every existing rig became "large." You can't fit large rigs to sub-BS class ships anymore, but if you have an old ship that you rigged before the change, the large rigs will still be on it and still function normally. Personally I have a Phantasm with 3x large extender rigs on it Cool

Iirc nothing, they were on there but offline. If you were undocked in it it probably would stay online.
