They had better not change one thing about the Prophecy. (OK they can add a drone bay if they want but that's it).

Harbinger on the other hand is a mess. They could change everything about it and I would be OK with it. On a whole Amarr need the fewest changes.

If I had to go down the line I'd say Inquisitor could be completely revamped. Punisher could use a bit of sprucing up so it doesn't look so much like a kids plastic gun.

Omen looks fine to me but it seems like a lot of people hate the one side wing. Add another on the other side and call it a day. I'd actually love to see the Arbitrator made a bit more chunky. I hate flat ships. But the Maller and Augoror are perfect.

Battleships are all perfect too as far as I am concerned.

Strangely the Amarr have the best overall subcaps as far as art design goes but the two worst carriers. They could both be completely revised from front to back but then I don't fly a carrier so for all I know there are people who love them just the way they are.

But yeah...Prophecy. Don't change a single thing about that fat space turkey.

Looks a little bit more mean. The underside looks like something from the Aliens franchise.


it needs to go back to being the ugly brown space whale (and/or potato) it used to be

that new one is just straight up ugly. has an ugly beak, and the ship loses most of its former lines.

Yeah, I'm just not a fan. One of the best charactistics of Gallente ships are their pleasant curves. They remind me a lot of Star Wars Rebel Mon Calamari capital ships in that regard.

The new Dominix art looks like some kind of Soviet Era armored train. For some reason, the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the Fanfest shot was this.

Another problem with the new Domi is it doesn't look like it's any kind of a detail upgrade over the present model... just a sidegrade and 'reimagining' of the current ship... which, frankly, is continuing this troubling trend of changing what works in the interest of the new.

I love the rifter and the T2 variants, I would never want to see that changed. Plus, it's so iconic for the game by now, it would be kind of stupid to change it.

Simple topic: list one ship you think is great as-is, and does not require a model revamp.

Mine? Vexor. I love my flying hair dryer, and I think it stands up superbly against any model in the game.


Update them all, if you aren't moving forward then you are moving backwards.

I keep my view zoomed out too far to look at ships and my settings at the lowest point possible for the highest performance. That said, the recent change to the cynabal is the only one I noticed as it has left me with a brown potato.

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

I imagine any Rifter changes will be minimal. Probably a warp speed animation along the lines of "Lock S-Foils in attack position" sort of deal.

Armageddon, and, in fact, any Amarr ship. (except the bestower - who uses that piece of turd anyway)

Dominix, now that it actually has some visible detail.

It is one of the most iconic ships in the game.

This is not a signature.

The vomit inducing colour of the Ishtar is a good reason the play Eve whilst wearing sunglasses.

They're talking about MODELS though (the shape of the ship).

Assume that color will be taken care of when we can all custom-paint our ships, which has been announced. So your vomit-inducing Ishtar will soon be more pastel to look at, or whatever.

Do you want the shape of the Ishtar to change or not?
