About the Eos' model

I did a quick forum search to get an impression on wether or not the myrmidon would be the hull used for the t2 gallente CS. Afterall, I ran across that link posted by Tippia (I believe) : http://eve.beyondreality.se/pics/RodenMydon.jpg

I think they should change the Eos Model to a Myrmidon. They are making all 8 Combat focused anyway.

* Claymore / Cyclone
* Sleipnir/ Hurricane
* Astarte / Brutix
* Eos / Myrmidon
* Damnation / Prophecy
* Absolution / Harbinger
* Vulture / Ferox
* Nighthawk / Drake

Then get to work on T2 Tier 3 Battlecruisers.


The Devblog for navy battlecruisers was very inconclusive, so the base question remains:

''Will the Eos ever be based on the Myrmidon?''

That's all, links to realted posts really appreciated. :)

ABC's should have been T2 to begin with they are clear specialist ships.

'Tech3 ships need to be put down, like a rabid dog drooling everywhere in the house, they are out of line' CCP Ytterbium Nerf missile range into place where is the TD missile change?  ..projectiles should use capacitor. ABC's should be T2 HABC and nerf web strength its still too high

I only cited that T2 ABC part to paste something complete as it was written. I think T2 ABCs are a terrible idea. If people are already complaining about tech-IIIs with their sig+tank/gank ratio, they certainly would even more so being confronted with HACs shooting SR weaponry at 50+km AND massive dps.

I'm actually hoping that one of you ran across a sekret post somewhere that either puts a certain death to all speculations or inflames those even more. Community has been 'disappointed' with the navy brutix (navy myrm makes little to no sense anyways, as was pointed out by Fozzie I believe) and yet there hasn't been a single merciful hint I caught up with!

(disappointed cause it is not a myrm, navy brutix is amazing though)

I don't want replacement of absolution model.

Exactly, the Harbinger would look way more nasty in Khanid colors anyways.

The Myrmidon gets no love. It's not a Command ship, and it's not the Navy ship. I think it'd be neat for the Myrmidon to be the Eos. The Astarte has to be the Brutix, but an Eos Myrm would be glorious. Although I'd be sad to see the Brutix Eos go at the same time.

Save the drones!

it would be cooler if they all got unique models loosely based off their appropriate hull so Myrm - Eos but heavily modified.

This is something I've been thinking about during my predesign for the command ships.

I'll start with this disclaimer, we will never feel that we need to make hull designs match the function of every ship. So there's no NEED to switch the hulls on any command ships. This is not something we've decided to do, but it is something we could do and would like your opinions on.

It might be interesting to convert half the command ships into the other BC hull, picking the one that matches their weapon type at the T1 level.

That would (potentially) mean:

  • Eos would use the Myrm hull
  • Sleipnir would use the Hurricane hull
  • Abso would use the Harb hull
  • Nighthawk would use the Drake hull

  • This is the kind of thing that we'd expect many people would have strong opinions about, and since it wouldn't have direct gameplay effects we wouldn't consider it worth doing unless there was some significant community support for the idea that overwhelms the opposition.

    So, hypothetically, what do you guys think?

    I like it. Would they still keep their corp/paint schemes?

    Yes, they'd have the same paintjob as before, just with different hulls.

    The art guys have also been slowly updating many T2 ships to have modified geometry compared to the T2 hulls, so either way someday the command ships will likely end up being a bit different, but that would likely come later.

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion, even if that opinion is disgustingly wrong and heretical.


    I wouldn't mind the Nighthawk being a T2 drake as long as they spruced it up like they did with marauders. That'd be cool. Maybe making the little bridge projection there more like the 'classic' Drake. And then throw on slick Kaalakiota color scheme. I'd actually fly that based on appearance alone.

    Not sure about the slep, so iconic as it is. Rest though is an awesome idea.

    I support this in the strongest possible terms.

    The only reason this wasn't done before was because Command Ships pre-date the old tier2 BCs.

    I support it stronger :PPP
    same with all T2 hulls would be awesome with unique models based on the appropriate hull.

    I really like the idea. It would make the two command ships more unique and besides, drake with the red stripes= WIN!

    The idea of a command ship with a bunch of extra antenna and stuff makes me tingly.
