Once, there was a minmatar assault cruiser, that plied the space lanes wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting.

This ship was terrifying to behold, much like a Frill-Necked Lizard. Unfortunately, this ship has been defrilled, circumcised, some might say.

Bring back the frill of the Vagabond.

Oh dear god no. It looks so much better now.

Idea opposed.

Like a clean circumcision. It's like a junkyard Thorax, barely more than a Stabber or SFI. The flared frill, which would shock enemies providing the Vagabond pilot with an additional moment to strike, was the signature of the Vagabond. It should be brought back, moreso than the flashing red lights of the Navy Comet.

The "Frill" is more than a simple design change, or upgrade, or V3 decision based on server load, lag, or any other comprehensible reason. It is simply change for change sake. And there was no reason to remove the one distinguishing feature of the Vagabond. It doesn't serve to distinguish it from its variants, in fact it serves to make it look just like its variants!

The Vagabond needs to have its manhood restored. Whatever the reason for the change, nice try and all, but we'd prefer to have it back. Why remove something so especially unique to Eve? One of the most easily recognized and distinctive ships in all of New Eden?

Speaking as one who has faced and always respected the Vaga but never flown one (although I can), aside from its capabilities the thing that always distinguished the ship was the aggressive appearance given it by its "frill." I see nothing to recommend this change positively, only the ability to tick off more users. +1 to the proposal to bring the "frill" back, and +1 to the request for an explanation from the responsible party/parties.

I have never had a Vaga because i can't afford one nor fly it. But its a shame to see it loosing its Frill. T2 should look more different that their t1 versions, rather than just having another skin.

The Curse also lost its antennas :(

First they tried to sell us over-priced monocles. Now that they've butchered the ship, will they sell us back the bits at $5 a wing?
