Despite the thunder was stolen by the last video devblog, I like the ship and it being one of the new BCs meets my expectations.

But I see only 4 turret slots there.... either a WiP -related issue, or it's going to be a missile boat-or a split weapon system ship.

Oracle only has 6 lazors?

So the leak was wrong? Also wtf doesn't seem like it's going to compete.

Also everytime I look at that ship and can only think of sharlin warcruiser.

Battleship hulls: Raven. And possibly the scorp, though we all pretend the stinger bit is housing weapons, not some fairytale trekkie-like bridge.



In my mind the scorp stinger was where all the ecm equipment was kinda like the big tail on the old EF-111's

i still fail to see the need for even more hard hitting BC faster then most cruisers. i fail to see the role.

i would have liked to see a T3 BC instead?

I count 26 engines on that ship. Shocked I think it needs 4 more to make it an even 30.

"We've gone plaid."

Imagine the fuel economy on that sucker. I kid, I kid.

Even before the official unveiling, it is still a very sexy looking ship. It is making me consider training into Amarr ships and Energy turrets, plus armor tanking.

I was just thinking: Imagine if the front two plates were animated with a open and closing animation, and when they open up a hidden cluster of forward-facing laser turrets are revealed. You know... kind of like the front cannons on The Flying Dutchman from Pirates of the Carribbean.

Well, that leaves the Caldari T3 BC left to reveal. I can't wait.

Shooting POS in smaller WHs. But yeah, you got a point.

Don't be mistaken into thinking those are engines........ 25 of them are BBQ grills for a hungry pilot's hot dogs.

PS: please don't make the mistake and give it 2 passive bonuses ( tracking and optimal) give it one damage bonus
with the stats from the leak the harbinger does almost more dps than it with mega pulses =(


The first one was actually the better design, making it not super seed the harbinger in DPS with only halve of the EHP to keep his role intact for fights up to point range. The current design got seriously less finesse, by plain outganking the harbinger and lacking the speed after tanking to be a excellent kitting platform, like the slicer and Zealot and a well rounded alternative to the harbinger.

It has a sidebridge thing. Amarr ships DONT WORK THAT WAY. Hideous, impractical "shoot me here" bits that stick out like that are the domain of the Caldari, though I despise that such bits are in the game at all.

Should have been a Khanid boat, as there is still not a Khanid BC.

Just sayin'...

Edit: Forgot about the Damnation. Though, who hasn't forgotten that ship?
