Well, i was confused about what i was going to be training for in the near future, looks like i've found my answer. Tempest with smaller sig and faster? yes please

I think I need to clean my pants now.

Honestly though, I look forward to this ship, which seems designed for PvP (lots of gank, little tank), as long as the slots aren't mind-boggling, and its not absurdly priced.

Could we try that on sisi first to see if it actually works? Wouldn't be your first mistake you know.

The Caldari state demands a better long range hybrids platform! >.>

(or just rework the Ferox, that's good too)

I added a tribute to the Tornado's original designer. Let's all give him a big toast tonight.

Don't get too excited, my bet is they'll only be able to use the lowest tier of Battleship weapons (without ******** fits). Which is a smart move by CCP imo cos they are some of the least used guns atm.

if you group them (and combine it with the SC nerf) you have a supercapital annihilation fleet.

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

Good idea!

These are going to be so different from normal BCs that I'm not sure it makes sense to keep the name. Why not put them under a new category (someone suggested the name "Monitor" for this kind of ship), while keeping the skill requirements?

I really can't wait for the stats on these ships to be released (and for them to show up on the test server)

Don't mean to jump the gun here but I have to ask, in regards to "the right pilot will be able to manage speed and distance" to compensate for the lack of tanking ability.... Are you giving us the sorely missed and dearly beloved real nano back? Like proper back in the day nano?

Bullshit.

WTH are you doing?
Make it as battle ship or as bc with normal guns.

And i know why CCP do so...
They have finished model of tornado. They wanted to make it as bs... but... they think next way - "****, we need to make another 3 bs models to another factions".
After that they remember starship contest, with a winner. CCP have to add a ship of a winner (Mentor).
But there is another problem - "damn, it's a battlecruiser, we need to make more 3 to each faction".

And so lame ccp decided to combine this ship into one bullshit. CCP think "why not, then we will need to make only 2 models, for caldari and gallente tier3 bc, and not 6."

-1 to that idea. Sorry for my rude langiage, but it's my mind, and i can't find any other word but BULLSHIT!

And what will be next? Cruisers with large smartbombs? Frigates with capital turrets? Shuttle with doomsdays? LAME!

O_O

love it.

+1 CCP. Oversized gun BC hull is the smartest thing you could've done, IMO. I can't wait.

Also, in b4 torp drakes.
