All I want for Christmas is to make beautiful rainbow colors with mining lasers.

Thus far that's all we've gotten. We do know there's some kind of hull polarizer mjodule for the Rorq which will basically make it and any barge in range more of less impervious to damage for a limited time (and also stop them from moving) presumnably so help can arrive, but there's no actually hard details around how any of that works.

I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me tonight.

I feel charming,
Oh, so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel!
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real.

See the pretty girl in that mirror there:
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!

I feel stunning
And entrancing,
Feel like running and dancing for joy,
For I'm loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!

Have you met my good friend Maria,
The craziest girl on the block?
You'll know her the minute you see her,
She's the one who is in an advanced state of shock.

She thinks she's in love.
She thinks she's in Spain.
She isn't in love,
She's merely insane.

Hot pink skiffs, because you want your bullet sponge shot at!
They will be shot at, if only to get rid of that awful tackiness.

I still want either the orca or the rorq to be repurposed into a captital mining ship(not boosting). Or create a capital mining barge. I know there was a mention of the rorq getting drones... but that isn't what I had in mind. It is so silly that both the capital mining ships are boosters/support.

Horrible idea.

Either some group (it would be nullsec cuz.....favoritism) would get mining capitals and destroy the market for everyone else or....

Everyone would get them and destroy the mineral market even faster.....Tritianium would be like 0.00000000000001 ISK each in either case.

Yawn,  I'm right as usual. The predictability kinda gets boring really.

uhhhh no. why wouldn't they be usable in highsec? Rorqs and orcas are usable in HS. Second, it would make item manufacturing cheaper. Cheaper ships and stuff could be good for the game because it lowers the cost of PvP. More people willing to do more = more action = more press for the game.

You mean just the Orca right?

Rorqual cannot enter highsec and so far, no one from CCP has suggested that will be changing.

CCP have been teasing us with Rorqual changes literally for years now.

It is a big internal joke, on us.

The hinted changes are also a joke.

You can search for posts by me with the keyword Rorqual to find any relevant thread.

Yes it is a Joke called CCP Fozzie, He hates off grid boosts but cant get rid of them until he 'fixes' the Rorq.
His latest thought bubble was to force the Rorq to sit in belts to provide on grid boosts, offset by having mining fighters and a 5 min 'I win button' while the rorq pilot screams for help.
As a previous post linked, these ideas were brought up at EDU, myself and others did discuss with the dev's present that it was a stupid idea.
No Rorq pilot will voluntary sit in a belt and act as a loot pinata for a roving gang.

Why a switch on/off? Because the new animation doesn't add anything to gameplay and it's graphically annoying. In other words, it's worse than bad: it's useless. Simple as that. - Kina Ayami
