New ships/Class

I'm just wondering what the loyal members of EVE think the next big ship/class of ships will be?
Will it be a class of t3 frigs or battleships, or something entirely different?
I can't really see too many more specialized ships, such as the Noctis or Primae, as I don't see a whole lot of needs for a new ship, but feel free to disagree and post your thoughts.

Hopefully a mothership/hive-ship vs the much asked after T3 frigates.

I'd like to see the idea of the mobile home base come into reality in the game but I've a hunch that the T3 frigates will come first.

What would t3 frigs be useful for? Would they just be a nasty frig that can take out battlecruisers, or would they have a specific purpose in mind?

t3 rarely = specific purpose..

I would like to see the current ships balanced before new ones added. That being said t3 frigs would be nice, tier 2 destroyers, and a new tier Bc between the current tiers.

And a sudden plunge in the sullen swell. Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell.

Fix the ships that are in game first before introducing new ones.

Firstly, the entire T3 cruiser line needs to be balanced, some far outperform their racial command ships (field, not fleet, I know all about how fleet commands compare to link setup T3's) and some barely even compare with the other ships in their class.

How many of us would like to see maybe a boost to the Sleipnir and the Absolution and the Astarte and the Nighthawk receive a bit of a boost?

Why not a boost or change for assault frigates? Where's that fourth bonus that they're all still missing?

How about dreadnoughts? Why not changing their siege bonuses to something more appropriate?

Think about the ships already ingame first before saying that we suddenly need more. I'd rather see the Sleipnir get a buff towards something that isn't active tanking.

Faction destroyers and battlecruisers.

I know it doesn't make any pragmatic sense, I just want to see what would they look like.

good stuff. I want a faction battlecruiser as well.

Tier 2(notice i say tier not tech) dreadnoughts
Tier 2 carriers (notice i say tier 2 "carriers" not carriers with more tank/dps than a titan aka supercarrier.)

BS class bombers = could change the current black ops into.

Definitely the Astarte. It is pretty much useless as a gang bonus ship. I see the the State Raven flown more often - sarcasm.

I think you might have gotten the Eos and the Astarte confused. Happens to me all the time when I think of the Gallente command ships, no one ever uses them, so I never worry about them.

Tech 2 Tier 2 BCs... So Tech 2 Canes, drakes, Harby and Myrms.

Role: Strategic explorer ships. dedicated probing, salvaging and combat. Especially useful for hacking and analysing.

Of all things you can think of, CCP will most likely put out faction battlecruisers and faction destoryers and t2 tier 3 bs's and tier 3 bc's. Its because they have t2 and t1 only so far. :) and as for ideas youll need a t2 version before t3 for MOMS Ugh that would kill 0.0

I always thought that faction ships would have more calibration rig space because of Faction. Faction rigs anyone?

A T2 pvp BS would be great and wouldn't really hurt balance, as they should be on par with pirate faction BS - probably the tornado and its counterparts will be something like that (just hoping they don't just make it a tier 4 BS as that would most likely render their older counterparts obsolete).

T3 frigs and BS would be really hard to implement as they're on the extreme ends of subcaps which may easily lead to immense balancing issues.

Ship Ideas:

  • Ship balancing of current hulls. (To include a Khanid themed BS option).
  • T3 Frigates and Destroyers for each race
  • Combat exploration boat (Probe strength + weapon systems bonuses) that is Cruiser + sized.
  • Further development of sneaky covert hulls. A BS bomber for taking on capital ships would be craaazy.


Other Ideas:

  • Instead of Captain's Quarters. How about small customized PoS. I want to make my own NPC-Like pleasure hub at some sort of safe-spot.
  • Same idea as above, but for small corporations. A way that does not include Sov and can be made in high or low sec.
  • No clue about other ideas ... more will come to me.

My wishlist:


T3 frigates (except I think the minmatar one is going to be the best, then caldari, and gallente and amarr down there in the dirt as per usual)

Removal of dramiel or SEVERE nerfs to that **** boat overpowered junk

re-balancing of gallente as a whole

more nano-nerfs.

re-balancing of the interdictors (anyone ever seen anything but a sabre?)

overall nerfs to minmatar, sorry, winmatar.

That makes sense - calling for a Dramiel nerf and introduction of an entire ship class that will pose much more of a problem at the same time... (hint: there'd be hardly any point in T3 frigs if they aren't at least as good as current dramiels are).
