I have to say, that you say it will be easier for newer pilots to get into but then it requires battleship sized guns?


I'd say that's interesting because the major issue at the moment is that T2 Large Guns take WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more training than training the Battleship skill.


But, hey - I'll take it - the Noobs can suffer at my awesomeness.


But now I have to train T2 Large Projectiles ;p

I heard there are T1 Large turrets too



Meh, generally over-priced for Meta size BS guns - but you bet your ass those guns are going to fly up in price.


See you on the Market PVP.

I really love that design and cant wait for the other battlecruiser pics but i`m curios if there are plans to get a new tier of battleships something more "efficient' then the marauders? cos those puppy's have been in the game for a VERY LONG TIME and they didn't get any love whatsoever

So we can expect that in the future a new destroyer will be released that can fit medium turrets right? Blink

I think he meant to make the ship competitive with the other racial equivalents, not to make it look pretty. Big smile

The Tornado is absolutely awe inspiring, I just hope that the Gallentean one will not be A BIG AMORPHOUS AMOEBA with engines strapped on it.

I don't suffer from insanity.. I enjoy it !

Long story short: All those C1 POS towers that we couldn't get battleships to are going down this winter...


Was exactly my first thought. I hope it is below the mass limit.

Yea but what about price ranges. If the goal is to get new players into the game then this BC is gonna have to set at 50 mill or something. I can foresee starting prices to be inflated

Sweet. Then I already fully qualified to fly them gems for caldari and minmatar :-) Dont got tech two BS weaponry for amarr or gallente. I hate flying bs, but BC with BS weapons is going to encourage me to spec up BS sized skills! I love my cruiser sized ships.

I guess I can assume that best looking ships from the art winners is converted to BC size. But I heard that CCP did not pick the winner of EACH race?
