Navy Ship Chages -> How About Super Unique Ships?

Are there any planned changes for the following:

Silver Magnate
Guardian-Vexor
Federate Issue Megathron
Imperial Issue Armageddon
Imperial Issue Apocalypse
State Issue Raven
Tribal Issue Tempest

With planned changes for all other navy ships, are these super unique ships going to be just antiquated collectible jumks?

I see all the recent AT ships identified as "T2" ships with super unique properties.

Perhaps it is time to upgrade the ships listed above to keep them on par along with the changes made to all these preexisting normal ships?

Why? They are so rare, any time used on balancing them would be a complete waste.

Of course, but some of the main reasons why these ships were so desired was because of their amazing specs.

Anybody that desires them for that reason will probably never lay their hands on any of them.
Their only purpose is as collectibles, and it would remain so even if they were rebalanced.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

The main reason is because they are rare and no longer available. It is very seldom you see someone actually use one of those ships. So balancing a unused and no longer available ship, is a waste of time.

A wast of exactly 10 minutes or so for CCP. Just add extra 0 at the end or something.

Once again, I am asking just for the "equitable" reason.

During graphic advancements in the previous years, they have given these unique super ships, "unique" skins as well. I suppose that was a waste of time on Dev as well, but still, it would be nice if all the ships gain their fair share of improvements.

Undocking those ships is asking for death. Seriously, anyone seeing a Guardian Vexor who has half a brain cell will engage it; it has such a small tank and to get a killmail with that ship on it (kill or otherwise) would be an impressive achievement.

Yes lets make random changes to unused ships, for no reason what so ever. :Logic:

The graphic changes may have been forced due to carbon updates. Not to mention ship skins have more use for these ships, since spinning them in station is about all that is done with them. Stats on the other hand would be a waste of time.

I agree. That is exactly the reason why these unique ships need a fair share of improvements on spec along with the changes/improvements that all other Navy ships are getting.

Perhaps the improvement will entice the owners of these ships to take em out on the space.

So that's how rebalancing works... It seems so complicated, it's actually quite funny now I realise how simple it is.

My Guardian-Vexor is for undocking on SiSi and spinning in a hanger on Tranq. Big smile

Sad but true.
