Each races command ships all use the same tier 1 battlecruiser model, but for quite some time now there are tier 2 BCs. So I was wondering, wouldnt it be nice to change the model of one of the Command ships to that new BC-model, giving a more unique look?

For Gallente the Myrmidon is more of a drone boat, so the Eos (with its drone bonus) could use the Myrm-model, instead of looking like Astarte/Brutix.
For Caldari the Nighthawk could use the Drake-Model, since both are missile boats (Ferox is more into rails, as the Vulture).
I don't fly Minmatar/Amarr BCs, so I am rather at a loss here, but for them it would also be an improvement if their CommandShips had a more distinct look to them, instead of 3 ships all using the same model.

what do my fellow pod pilots think?

The same happens with alot of other ships. Tbh I see no problem with it, you never know, maybe CCP have other plans for the tier 2 BC hulls.

Although it seems a logical suggestion, there is as much logic in current situation.

CSes appeared before tier-2 BCs. So basically EOS, Nighthawk and others were designed using the only available hull.

And THEN, seing the wonderful results of command ships, a next tier of T1 BCs was created, with new hulls, optimized for the task - thats how Drake, Myrmidon, Hurricane and Harbinger came to life.

Sorta.

Maybe.

From a pure gameplay perspective I would see no problem with it.

From the roleplay perspective though, it's a minefield of bad timelines, inherrited bonuses and other such fluff that roleplayers like.

Personally I have to side with the roleplayers on this one, I'd rather see entirely new ships added for the tech 2less tech 1 ships.

id rather see the Myrm hull go to a tier2 field command, using something like the old pre-nerf Eos stats.

Cos in its current form the newer eos is a disgrace to Creodron family - no point wasting the myr hull on that.
