As part of the ongoing balancing and Tiericide of ships that's been going on, the Navy faction ships have begun to look a little less awesome by comparison. But never fear! They too are on the block to be rebalanced and CCP Ytterbium is on the job!

In his new dev blog, CCP Ytterbium discusses all the planned changes coming to the Navy ships in Odyssey, as well as touches on some planned changes even further down the line.

Please use this thread for any discussion.

Is there any reasons that you're not using ISO8601 in the devblogs' timestamp anymore? That was quite explicit, and even from years back, i never had to think of the date's meaning. This new format is confusing, especially when viewing something like "02.04" in august. Can't really make out what was the release date...

Gallente should have navy faction Myrmidon instead of Brutix.

Mhmm, I hope navy battleships are getting buffed after this. If Navy BCs have BS-level EHPs...

And here I was hoping for a Navy Myrm =\

The Brutix is the only ship on that list that has a t2 varient What?

Heeeere we go...

Actually, the Narbinger is looking pretty sweat.

I think you're overpricing them in terms of LP considering their stats.

As long as the explosion radius bonus is a reduction to the explosion radius, I'm liking the Drake change. Slight fall in kinetic damage, increase for the others.

Though I've not gamed the other changes out.

Woo! CSM XI!

Why navy Brutix instead of Myrm?

The Brutix will have the smallest niche ever (a more tanky Talos, a less tanky Mega, and a bigger Thorax all in one go)

Navy Harbinger looks like the real winner here, that should be a fun toy indeed.

My word you people have been busy.

CCP Ytterbium, tell me what you have been giving your rebalance guys.

I need to give this to my minions at work. I've found that whipping them loses its effect, after a while they start to enjoy it.

Props on the changes.


Adjusting the LP would be a tad saner. I think a lot of folks will want these for pewpew and not many of them are going to be used for that kind of tin.

F**k, I just got rickrolled.

I swear, there was a rickroll link in the last bits of the blog just a moment ago. Now it's gone. Shocked

I think you need to check your costs again. I would love to use these for PVP, but 250M+ a ship is a bit ridiculous. For FW it needs to be 80K LP.

Why not a Nyrmidon?
Why a "Nrutix"?

It would be so much easyer to talk about it.
