Thank you CCP.

I don't even know what they are for. What are they for? This is going to change play styles.

What will we do with them? I'm having too much if a nerdgasm to find out. All those SOE LPs saved for this very day!

Quick! Some easy info! Somebody! Anybody!


Looking forward to this next expansion.

(while I clean up)

Bring back DEEEEP Space!

Right now their primary purpose seems to be nerd spooge extraction.

Mission accomplished. I'm typing with one hand.

(having celebratory rum and cola the size of Cleveland with the other - what did you think I was doing?)

Bring back DEEEEP Space!

These ships were basically made for one of my favorite playstyles and my main char's crosstraining... covops, some pvp some pve, drones and armor tanking.... so to have them look that awesome and be delivered on my actual birthday. I really considered cutting out my own tongue and lopping off my fingers just so I wouldn't give the surprise away...

But somewhere deep within myself I found the strength to keep them a secret. I'll be your first customer in game.

More covops the better. I hope there will be a drone boat that can drop sentries and be a cov ops.

Looking to talk on VOIP with other EVE players? Are you new and need help with EVE (welfare) or looking for advice? Looking for adversarial debate with angry people?

You'll be tired of them 2 weeks after they come out, then begin waiting for the next "Expansion"

The only real problem I see with them is that they seem drone dependent for DPS. And in WHs, where this kind of ship would naturally get a lot of use -- and I suppose plexes now too - drones are pretty quickly targeted.

Perfect opertunity to bring a covop logi, doesn't have to be as good as AT ship but it can fill a much needed niche

That depends entirely on the ship. I'm not tired of my Tengu or my Proteus and apocrypha released what, over four years ago?

And my Tornado, released 2 years ago, is pretty swell too.

Point. Drones for PvE is pretty much a joke; either they're all insta-popped by rats, or you can go AFK and let the drones do all the heavy lifting.

Finally I can give up on a life of crime flying Guristas ships and reveal my true, benevolent nature by flying these symbols of humanitarianism.

But, why is the main high-sec source for LP for this Gallente-Amarr faction in Caldari space?

Exactly. They might as well just get rid of drones altogether at this point. Their an AFK button for the easier missions and completely worthless in the others. For PVP mobile drones are a joke except for the odd heavy used against a BC, or sentries in huge fleets. Ewar types are pathetically weak, both in effect and durability.

This..a thousand times this. A universal organization has exactly ONE agent worth using in all of high-sec?

So. Random idea.

What if we made these destroyers/battlecruisers instead of frigates/cruisers? Then they wouldn't directly compete with CovOps/T3s in the exploration role, and we'd have our first pirate destroyers/BCs -- and you also wouldn't have to deal with that nagging question of, "Where's the battleship?" ;)

"Our first pirate destroyers/BCs"..? The entire Minmatar fleet would like a word, and I believe I hear a Catalyst yelling in the background.

Manifest, how many bacon-sprinkled cupcakes did you have to send to Hilmar, etc, to get this stuff released on your birthday? :P
