The lance is so awesome, it's not even just Gallenteans who like it.

That moment when you realize the crazy lady with all the cats was right...

As a gallente space knight, I support the preservation of the incursus' lance. Please don't take it away CCP!

I would also prefer to keep the lance, just as much as I wanted to save the frills on the vagabond and the space police fed navy comet.

The Incursus is an iconic frigate that has helped define the look of Eve.

First we turn the Incursus into a eunuch.. then what? Snip the tip of the Thorax as well? WHERE DOES THE MADNESS END?!?!!

Tech 2 geometry variants for Incursus confirmed. How do we like our lances people? Time to say something to the dev.

Thanks for linking that Dev thread. And Ralph, thank you for cluing a Dev in on this thread.
We're making a good effort, here. Perhaps CCP's design department will hear our plea, afterall.

Since they are T2, they need 2 lances!

Honestly, though.... the antennae make sense on the Ishkur. But the Enyo and Incursus *NEED* the lance. It's what makes the ship so iconic. Ditching the lance would be like taking the gold away from Amarrian ships, or nixing Sansha ships' spikes.

I would rather the lance be retained on the Ishkur, and a pair of those high gain antenna domes like the Algos has be added to the bottom, possibly on the underside, near the back, for reasons.

Its not over! Don't give up! All seemed lost when the Vaga was released sans frills, but after a steady outpouring of support, the art team fixed it. We can still save the lance!

I believe you're referring to the stack of Epcot Center-looking things on the back end of my favorite space U-boat?

There are lots of T2 ships that need a major cosmetic overhaul (really, they should all be totally unique hull designs like the Stealth Bombers, but CCP is legit working on that). For example: why is the Phobos the only Heavy Dictor that has those domes on it? All the others have always looked identical to their T1 counterparts.

As for the Ishkur.... lance or not, there should still be an obviously expanded drone bay, with big openings along the sides, that my swarms of AI minions can spill out of to do my fiendish pirate-y bidding :)

Ishkur obviously needs to be different so can afford to lose it (no matter my personal feelings that Incursus is the wrong hull completely for the Ishkur) but the the lance is the defining feature of the Incursus models and both it and the Enyo need it.

+1 stop fiddling with stuff. No I don't mean all the great changes, I mean fiddling with things that don't need a fix. Nip this behavior in the bud before it gets out of hand. P

I want my lance to extend a little every time I kill someone in the ship.
