Just an ideaIdea, make it with 8 launcher slots( Exclamationbecause that what the ship looks like it hasExclamation) instead of 7. Make the sheilds tougher but at a loss of speed( more power to the sheilds , less power to the engines). 10% damage and and rate of fire/ 8% sheilds toughest per lvl.
what to you guys think

well if they made a t2 or faction drake they would have to make a t2 or faction version of all the tier 2 battlecruisers. and i think there would be more of a drawback than just speed.

So, take a Nighthawk (the best sub-cap tanking ship in the game), give it ~+90% damage, and *buff* its tank? I think you can see where the problem might be with this idea.

Edit: Initial damage calculations were off.

Why would it be a good idea to implement that ship, and how could/should it be used?

The Drake is already borderline overpowered in PvE. So this is quite unneeded from a PvE perspective.
The faction variant would probably only be flown in missions, so basically not a good idea (at least as long as passive shield tanks don't receive a decrease in effectivity).
T2 ships are meant to be specialized, not outright stronger/better (although most T2 ships prove otherwise..).

All this would create is a "I can do lvl4 missions even if I'm braindead" no-skill mission runner's dream.

Like I said, change passive shield tank game mechanics (probably introduce a stacking penalty for power relays and their rig counterparts. yes, I mean capacitor and shield power relays, just to be fair) so even this ship would require a minimum of skill to pilot.
Otherwise, no, please no.

Honestly, I am not sure what is sexier - Drake or Hurricane? I am undecided. But, yes, indeed, if they would only introduce a Tech II variants, I would cream my pants.

Why not just change the nighthawk hull to a drake and keep the 6 med slots and keep the 5low slots... Just a thought...

How about just giving the Nighthawk some PG so it's usable in PVP? Mad

Actually I think the Drake looks like a shingle or a metallic saddle. Maybe a slate hat?

It's such a dull and flat design, at least I don't like it. And yes, I have flown it.
Imho the only thing that attaches players' hearts to it is it's overpoweredness.

This would be a better suggestion honestly.

Reduce the number of Missile slots it can use but not the overall slots.

Give it one more low slot.

Take away the damage bonus.

Give it a missile speed boof (say 5-10% per level).
Give it a bonus to Explosion Velocity (5-10% per level).

Increase the ship overall speed.

Now that I would like to see!

Tech-2 ships are generally implemented with a more specialized purpose than their tech-1 counterparts. Covert Ops, Recons, Command Ships, Stealth Bombers, Black Ops, Transport Ships, Interceptors, et cetera. Before the tier-2 battlecruisers will be given a tech-2 variant, that tech-2 class needs to be defined. It's not enough to just say "a better Drake" for example.
