With the EVE: Citadel expansion this Spring we will see, of course, Citadels but also a full revamp of capital ships. This includes the introduction of the new Force Auxiliary capital ships.

We now have more information about those Force Auxiliary ships available. Stats, transition from Triage Carriers to Force Auxiliaries and more.

Check out the latest dev blog from CCP Larrikin and Team Five-0 Reworking Capital Ships: Skills, Modules and Refitting.

No More Force Auxiliary Skills

Our original plan was to introduce a new dedicated Force Auxiliary skill. After player feedback we've decided to go another direction. Force Auxiliaries will instead use a renamed Carrier Skill. If you've already purchased a Force Auxiliary skillbook, the purchase price and any skillpoints trained will be refunded.


Yay!

Is there more coming on remote capital reps? The bonuses a force aux gets to those don't seem like the remote capital reps are going to be nerfed much, which suggests that supercarrier spidertanking won't go away.

What if we already have all the Fighter skills? Do we have to skill the new skills as well or do we also get Light and Support Fighters?

Glad to see that combat refitting is still being tuned down. Weapons timer is an elegant solution for it; nothing needs to change here.

Edit - Delete old comment on fighter skills.

I swear the dev blog changed between the time I wrote that and now :). I should not read dev blogs till after my coffee.

I see they explained how fighter skills work with regards to the current fighter skill.

Because the Fighter Bomber skill also becomes the new Heavy Fighter skill.

I would expect players to get the Light and Support Fighter skill at the lvl they have Fighter skill now tbh.

remote ASB and emergency damage controls seems too be all geared towards giving a ship immunity for a few minutes, kind of buffing logis in some respects especially if you have a whole bunch of them cycling reloads..

force auxiliary's are getting a lot of bonuses .. seems excessive..

T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats

A 1% role bonus to links is trash. This means 3 of 4 role bonuses are completely wasted. No one will ever use these for links when they can fly a covert nullified almost unprobable T3 for half the price and get a 10% bonus with defensive subsystems at 5. Let alone a CS with 15% bonuses.

If your aim was to get a 5% bonus, then make it a 5% role bonus, or a 1% per level of something skill bonus.

RIP capital usage, GG blob game. Nice work on providing the final solution for the blob mentality.

Bastion Weapons Timer!!!
Will this be removed or changed?
Otherwise a Marauder in bastion will never be able to refit, even when not shooting anyone.

Will FAX have regular drones (like a Rorqual) to defend themselves ?

Stats, finally!

Seeding FAX skills without giving people any clue wasn't a very good move imo... Oh and now you're cancelling those skills, okay why not :D

Feedback:
What's with the 1% role bonus to links? Shocked
Why even bother including it if it's only going to be 1%. If anything, if you want to encourage their use as fleet boosters, their bonuses should be way higher.
