Industrials serve a very important role in EVE Online, serving to transport goods and materials across the cluster. As part of the continuing Tiericide initiative, all Industrials will soon be rebalanced to give them specific roles. As part of this rebalancing, some of the ships will be renamed to reflect the new order.

In his first ever dev blog, CCP Rise lays out all the changes.

Just don't get overzealous and delete CCP Falcon from the game. We like him. He can stay. ;-)

All those new names (and roles) are going to take some time to get used to. Yikes! Shocked

Thanks for listening to community concerns regarding the industrial changes. I still think the Hoarder's going to be very underused though.

When the world is running down, you make the best of what's still around.

i love clever badger-type weasels!

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Will any of the specialized haulers be able to carry refined ice products (isotopes, hw/lo, stront)? Specifically eyeing the Miasmos, although I guess it might fit onto the Kyros too.

Sorry but no, you will still want to use one of the general purpose haulers for fueling. We looked at making this happen but couldn't for the time being.

So are any other of the other races getting any love on this? That's nice for Galls and ok for Cald, but everyone else only having 2 haulers and no specializations? Seems like forcing purists to have to buy and train more skills just to be equal...

Battle Tayra doesn't have the same ring about it.

Has Brian May been consulted on the Badger II cull?

I discussed this a ton with the community in the Features and Ideas feedback threads linked in the Dev Blog. If you're interested in it I recommend looking through some of the posts in those threads.

So what about the special edition industrials, e.g. Iteron Mk IV Quafe Ultra Edition? Will they have their legacy names or will they all be "Miasmos Quafe Ultra Edition", "Miasmos Quafe Ultramarine Edition", etc.? And will they also be rebalanced, or will they have the legacy stats of the old Iteron Mk. IV?

I'm really just curious, since I don't use industrials.
