Welcome the Minmatar tactical destroyer, the Svipul! With the Tiamat release, published on February 17, we will see this next tactical destroyer that is sometimes quite vertical. We will also see a slight overhaul of small projectile weapons and the according Tech-2 ammunition.

Read CCP Fozzie's latest dev blog The Republic Strikes Back: The Svipul Tactical Destroyer and Projectile Changes in Tiamat to learn all about the Svipul, the weapon adjustment and the true meaning of being vertical!

We've been really happy to see how many people are enjoying the Confessor, and we can't wait to see what you clever people will do with the Svipul as well.

As always, we'll be watching this thread closely for your feedback.

I sense this thread is going to put a lot of load on my mouse wheel as I scroll through it...

Well, that's what you get.

Also, maybe it should be more like

I did write a post here... then I completely neglected to include the 50% bonus to optimal in my calculations and now I feel... silly

So what ship wreck did the brilliant Minmatar engineers piece this contraption from?

Would like to see the optimal range bonus swapped to a falloff bonus to actually make it useful.

At least the modes aren't completely identical. I'll take it.

Love the look of it!

i like how it doesn't have identical-ish bonuses with the confessor while in the three modes :)

vertical, not vertical, vertical, not vertical, vertical...

situps in space!

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

Personally I think the Svipul would be much better served with a 50% bonus to falloff instead of optimal.
Plays into the strengths of projectiles much better.
