Now i know that newsitem is part of the lore, but we know from before that the lore leading up to an expansion has always been related (incursion, incarna etc), and if you read that text it seems Mr. Tukoss is looking for more things to use sleeper tech for than the strategic cruisers, could it be an implication that other t3 ships, or even t3 modules are on the way?

Is there a TL;DR for those of us that don't have the time or inclination to read a wall of ghey RP text?

tl;dr

"What I see, in my research, is a conspiracy of apathy towards true investigative science. When it comes to the study of wormhole space, the capsuleers are the only ones really achieving anything."

So this is about wormhole space and the Sleepers? The Deteis just nods this time. I leave him plenty of room to add to the answer, but he won't be drawn.

"Eifyr has long held my respect," Tukoss admits. "Their approach to research is very different to ours.

"It's kind of like that old stereotype about Minmatar ships being held together by duct tape. There's a kernel of truth to every stereotype, and here it would be that Minmatar scientists and engineers are very good at finding a hundred uses for the same thing. So for them, applied science is less important. They can often get more out of one discovery than we can get out of a dozen."

If they design them based on the T3 cruisers then I hope they have the foresight to delete all t1 cruisers in the same patch .. poor things rarely come out with tier2 BCs dominating so hard so a cruiser/hac level frig would make them utterly useless.

Now if they really wanted to think outside the box, then T2 BS/BC would get a single slot in which they can use a T3 subsystem as a specialised augmentation.
Would serve beautifully as a BO boost, CS boost and potentially make Marauders bad-ass for PvP.

Makes sense that new technology is eventually/gradually integrated into existing tech just as it is in the real world.

As a frigate pilot I am not looking forwards to t3 frigs. There's almost no way they won't be overpowered.

This. 2014 is the soonest they said they do it, unless their priorities changed. Pretty sure Soundwave said this, though I'm not sure where he said it.

2014 I heard somewhere a few times. CCP is busy making clothes and building their station interiors.

I can't confirm, but I heard somewhere that we might get new ships this winter. (tornado, maybe?)

on a rant note; CCP should not delay any new (T3/more other) ships till 2014, that's ridiculous.... that's almost hard to swallow hearing this after we have
had very dry expansions since apocrypha.

(p.s. CCP can I have my unlimited fittings please)

CCP feeds off your speculation. Keep dreaming.

There has been a puzzle leading to who knows what out in W space for some time now. It has yet to be solved after all this time. Dropbear has tried to give hints and nudge people in the right direction but to date no one has figured it out yet. Perhaps they are trying to encourage more people to go for it.
