Who will be the first dread flyer ?

or better yet who will claim to be the first dread flyer by posting a screeny of them in thier new dread.

The race is on. there can be only ONE :) well until they hit the market and then fleets of ganking dread squads will spend thier days jumping between choke points Twisted Evil

You can build a dread anywhere, you just cant jump inside 1.0-.5 space. So building one where a lowsec or 0.0 system wasnt nearby would be pointless.

All this is covered in the devblogs which people seem to forget about.

It says you cannot activate the jump-drive in 0.5+, but it never said anything about operating the dreadnaught in high-sec space, such as Nonni or some other new 'uuber market center' where the warmongering Scarebears will congregate to gank anything that moves.

We will just have to wait and see what happens when the first builder farts one out of a station in 1.0 and tries to shoot at a corp ally or war target.

They can be used in highsec space, you just cant go further than the system built unless there is a jump field in range in a nearby lowsec system.

its all explained in one of the older devblogs.

The first dread will probably go for 2-3bil or maybe more.

I'd be more interested in who brings the first Dreadnought down! There can't be a player in Eve, PvPer or not, who wouldn't like to see something like this in their Evemail:

Try the last statement and bump the price up to 4-5 bil isk and I think you have your Dread. The time you need to invest to be able to produce them is just horrible. Then in the end they will probably drop to 3-4 bil.

I dont think there will be any bpc's of dreads as they take i think a month or 6 weeks to make a one run. In that time you can make 3 dreads. As to seeing one out you might see it any time if they started training to fly one right after the patch but you wont be able to equip it right for another month or 2.

Not trying to start rumors, and no I'm not confident in what I saw (so don't flame me), but I was playing around with the new map options last night around 2400 gametime during a long haul and saw, if I'm not mistaken, someone playing with a cynosural field generator in low sec space.

It looked like a fast pulse between two systems and no, I didn't have my autopilot set to either of them.

Wow.... reading back on this, its the closest I've ever come to reporting a UFO.

I think the first players are from an alliance. Theoretical in 18 days a player could activate a dreadnought, if he has one.

It can be done faster than that.

I think it'll sooner be the other way around.
Dreads or no dreads, POS will remain hell to kill.

Plus, I believe there's a **** load of Component BPO's you need to purchase as well...Let's just say, it is certainly not a cheap endevor...
