Your names are too confusing for me too, i have better proposition:

Minmatar small ship-medium ship-big ship-very big ship
Caldari small ship-medium ship-big ship-very big ship
Gallente small ship-medium ship-big ship-very big ship
Amarr small ship-medium ship-big ship-very big ship

And also "small cannon meta 1-5", "medium cannon meta 1-5", "large cannon meta 1-5" and "very large cannon meta 1-5", i am sure it will help new players and make EVE easier for everyone!

I like the idea - however, I expect meta level 1-4 guns to be merged into meta 3 and all being called 'Experimental medium [gun/launcher type] I'

If CCP goes further down this route it's all over for this game. Op makes a good point in a weird way.

I was going to write a serious reply stating why the ships are named a certain way...

but then I realized you were in Goonswarm and totally agreed with everything you said.

just rename everything with a dynamically generated construct of the ship's full ISK value, tank and DPS

Yeah actually let's just move past names and call everything by its ISK value determined by the latest sales in Jita and completed contracts.

I fully agree, these changes would help new players, but they still don't go far enough.

I would recommend to name the gallente battleships to

Dominix - Battleship Tech 1 - Drones
Megathron - Battleship Tech 1 - Hybrids
Hyperion - Battleship Tech 1 - Failure

....as if 10,058 Goon voices cried out and were suddenly silenced.

Clean out the wax in your ears. I'm only going to say this once.

The difference between two ships can include, but is not limited to, slot numbers, hardpoint numbers, shield and armor strength, velocity, mass, cargo capacity, drone capacity, signature radius and skill requirements.

The difference between a meta 2 1mn afterburner and a meta 3 1mn afterburner is a ~3.7% difference in their max velocity modifiers.

The former is worthy of an independent naming scheme. The latter is worthy of a streamlined naming scheme.

I'll let you figure out why.

If I were a dev, drones would be able to rep their owners, mining would actually be interesting, faction warfare would be active and the NEX store would have never come into existence.

The Iteron will be called the Gallente Loot Can
The Badger will be called the Caldari Loot Can
The blockade runners will be called by their racial type as the Racial that @#$ Got Away
The Mackinaw will be called the Easy Loot Drop
The Hulk will be called the Harder Loot Drop
The freighters will be called by their racial type plus Giant Loot Can.

Procurer - What?
Skiff - Tears Light
Retriever - Tears
Covetor - More Tears
Mackinaw - Frozen Tears
Hulk - Bot Tears
Orca - Best Tears


Impairor - Amarr Noob Ship
Reaper - Minmatar Noob Ship
Ibis - Caldari Noob Ship
Velator - Dear God What Is THAT Thing?

Though I agree with Morganta. Just name a ship based on it's overall value, including fittings, cargo.
User definable ship-names should be changed to only display a pilots implant value.
