the sleipnir........is the sleipnir. the hull itself doesnt look that good but somehow it became so iconic and badass, its not even funny. -> changed to a cane (which looks awesome, but still.......its just not the same.) with a VERY meh color scheme.


What I really don't understand about this complaint - which keeps coming up again and again, btw - is why nobody complains about the color scheme being bad or meh until it appears on a Hurricane hull. It's the same exact color scheme that the Cyclone-based Sleipnir has RIGHT NOW on TQ!


probably because its clearly visible on the huge surface area of the hurricane model.

Hulls have such history and are in most cases very iconic in EVE, this was a poor choice in my opinion. It would have been easier to swallow getting your favourite hull ripped from right under you, if it had been replaced with a new model, not just a re-skinned lesser hull.

It won't be the same to sit in the harbinger-hulled Absolution next week, nor the drake-hulled Nighthawk, the hurricane-hulled Sleipnir or the myrmidon-hulled Eos.

Anyway, moot point, I guess I'm just posting this for posterity, to show my disappointment.

I havn't read the whole whole thread but I just want to say the Claymore should have the hurricane skin because, well, the hurricane looks like a Claymore.

Also, why 3 fleet Commands and 1 combat Command redesign? Consistency would make more sense: all fleets or all combats adopting new hulls.

There are no longer such things as fleet or combat command ships. That distinction was removed when we rebalanced the class.

And just to be clear we're still early on and nothing is set in stone at this point. What I don't want to do however is make kneejerk changes before more people have had a chance to try them out and give the alternate hulls a chance on Sisi.. Take the time to check them out on Sisi and let the idea settle in, keep letting us know what you think. We will continue to be taking feedback for quite a while.


8th of October was the last dev reply.... We are not that early anymore...

You did not even mention it in yesterdays stream... Can you at least kill my hope, that it will NOT be implemented, so I can enjoy the last few days in my Sleipnir without worrying what's gonna happen in Rubicon???

I wish CCP would spend more time on their t2 models rather than simply giving them a reskin. Adding some extra parts would be nice. Like the Ishtar and Zealot have extra thrusters for example, but add some thing else for variety. Like, idk, an extra claw on the other side on the Zealot, making it simetrical, looking cooler and ultimately better than the t1 ship. The Ishtar could use a change in it's hull, making it seem like it really has a bigger drone bay than the Vexor.

Are you going to fight me or do you expect to bore me to death with your forum pvp?

So now that there is a decent reason to own BPOs of each of the normal Battlecruisers.
Aesthetics aside each standard BC has a T2 variant of some kind.

Now that begs the question when are we going to see T2 versions of the Talos, Naga, Oracle, and Tornado?

why not? T2 versions do not need to be related to the t1 . They would not even need to use battleship guns.

Just find a nice role for htem and there is no good reason to not have them

Making completely new models with completely new looks takes a long time - especially when you consider that every new model the art department makes also has some kind of animation built into it. It took them a little over six months to make the new Paladin and Golem.

Dear CCP, thanks for listening to the overwhelmingly positive feedback in this thread.

/sarcasm off

You know I was following the thread from the very beginning and I was hoping you will change your mind because the overall feeling from this was so negative.

A lot of the positive feedback comes from people who simply wish to have t2 versions of 'cane, drake and the others. So you will make them happy but at the same time the people who actually fly the command ships usually disagree. not every time of course. It's like me.... I spent all my training so far on Sleipnir and I did love the ship. So I'm completely against the change. I do not really care about any of the other CS, 'cause I don't fly them...

So.. maybe you should listen to poeple who actually already fly the ships and not those who will now go for them because they get they favorite hull in t2...

Not to mention there is NULL response from you.

Disappointed very much. A lot of my training was rendered useless... GG CCP.

So unbelievably unhappy with the new Sleipnir look. I mean, if I wanted to fly a Hurricane, I would. I wish CCP had just left it alone until the final "new" changes are ready. I just can't fly it with it looking that way. Anyone want a 2 Bill Sleipnir, I'm putting it up on contracts in Jita.Sad
