Not that I want to destroy the thread or anything, but the Amarr Empire announcing that they're going to build a new flagship based on a pre-existing hull doesn't mean that we're going to introduce a whole new line of battleships to the game.

Just heading that off at the pass, before people get too excited.

It means that whoever wrote the article is disconnected from the actual game. The same thing happened with the skins news piece - sounded exactly like a dscan cloak or modifier but was just a skin. Disappointing. The articles should be vetted better I think.

Alternatively a single, limited edition ship like the Imperial Apocalypse and Armageddon.

Ah, FINALLY I understand what the OP was so riled up about.

I was looking dev blogs, twitter and reddit up and down searching the source about those new battleships, and now I find someone just misread a in character article.
You could say the whole thread is based on BS I guess Lol

If I don't get a T2 Amarr BS hull out of this I am going to be absolutely livid.

Not quoting as a direct response. But just to provide some context for my post.

Blops rebalance is still overdue. I can't think of much that would fit the concept of a behind-the-lines skirmish BS better than a T3 reconfigurable. Barring that idea, a new or at least renewed blops BS concept would be welcome.

but of course, why add new ships that are bigger than cruiser, when you can add smaller ships. After all, its not like we want people that actually want to fly bigger ships to have anything to get excited about, do we? not when we can reinforce the Cruisers Online that we currently have. It not like more than a few people see battles like B-R or RnK's videos and think, i want to fly those big ships, they get in game and then realise that there is exactly no point, because they will get rofl stomped by T2 or T3 cruisers. Champion. Seriously CCP, why not just remove anything bigger than a cruiser from the game? because thats what it feels like. the changes that you will be doing to battlecruisers will not be enough, nor will any changes to battleships or caps.

Apologies for that, it riles me up that the biggest assets in the game are getting neglected for things that should be considered throw away.

If we get really lucky, we would have T3 everything and reach T1 levels of class balance. (With the training draw back obviously)

Well of course it wouldn't be a whole line of battleships. Why would you need a whole line of battleships when "a new flagship" is actually a cover story for warship engineered specifically to fight the Drifters, designed in cooperation with and with contribution from all four empires as well as independents such as the SoE and SoCT?

I may seem extremely angry all of the time, but it's really just that I am very passionate.

The lack of a new Amarr thing would make me legit butthurt.
