The CCPs definitely are missing the best opportunity when it comes to the Ishkur now.

But the new triple antenna should be half the length at most.

The lance looked cartoonish, I couldn't take the previous design seriously.
New ship still has a familiar look but is more credible, good job CCP.

It's not even a lance. They just cut and pasted the refueling probe from an MH-53

The end of the lance also seals the fate of ever being able to skewer frozen corpses on it.

+1 don't ditch the lance.

End of the day, literally nobody that matters asked for this change. Let me tell you a little story about the lance though.

The lance is a symbol. When I first started playing EVE, I chose a Gallente toon (specifically Intaki) because I like the lore behind them. It was fascinating. I soon discovered that I was able to fly this beautiful ship called the Incursus. What made it more beautiful to me than anything else was the lance, the symbol of a knight, a noble warrior of chivalry and valour. Since then, the Incursus hull has been my primary PVP boat, both solo and otherwise, because it gave me an aesthetic sense of being a space knight. They say honour doesn't exist in EVE, or it shouldn't be expected. I never expect it, but in combat, I do personally strive to be as honourable as I can, provided my opponent can return the favour. If they cannot, of course, I always have lots of friends around.

Without the lance, I'm no longer a knight in shining Gallente armour, I'm just another generic PVP'er in another generic PVP ship. It's no longer an extra special experience for me, one that keeps me coming back for more, win or lose.

+1 for saving the lance. Please don't break my noble steed, CCP. Please, I beg you. I do like the look of the redesign, but it takes more away than it adds.

Heil Sansha.

I have a probing/scout/hero tackle Helios named Last Dance. The codephrase for a tackle is "Save The Last Dance!!"

Remove the lance.



Why do you hate fun?

As my illustrious forum PvP comrade, Remiel, already mentioned, the lance is there because the ship is meant to evoke the image of a jousting knight. You can't evoke that kind of evocation without the lance.

Oh, and PS: Star Trek ships would lose so hard to even just our Noobships, it wouldn't even be funny.

Could you imagine USS Excelsior trying to fend off a speeding Ishkur with a swarm of drones around her?
Photon torpedoes still have to be hand-loaded, mind you.

Do you see the adverse effects of removing the lance?
We've grown an entire subculture around that part of the ship.

Can we make this a "peaceful demonstration threadnaught"?

Pages and pages and pages, until CCP hears our cries and preserves our beloved lance.
