I hope they will keep the current torpedo explosion effect, massive shockwave always looks good.

if missile cost is a point than chemical propulsion is the way to go as its cheap. especially if the range is short. all our missile run out of fuel after about max. 30s so there is no need to implant any high-tech propulsion.

i like the smoke trails, i like the classic design of the missiles and i like the tracking launchers.

True, on certain types of missiles. Rockets, HAMs, it would be fine. Cruise missiles and torpedoes etc are a bit more high tech, and it should show. Also, a racial divide would be nice. I'm sure that minmatar use chemical propellents all day long and love it. Caldari would laugh at it though, since their (example fluffy stuff) high efficiency h2o fusion reactions propel the missile at a lower cost and higher efficiency for a given fuel volume.

Only us nerds who understand physics and chemistry enough to care, but not enough to see it's all nonsense and shrug off the entire EVE universe as one giant piece of applied phlebotinum, will worry about such things. I have a strong suspicion that's a majority of EVE players though :P

so would this mean the fancy new naga would get launcher points added to bring it in-line with the rest of caldari ships? (also since they already have another blaster tier 3 battlecruiser)

that was one reason they didn't want to put missles on the naga at first right? (didn't want to let their pretty new ship shoot blobs of missles from mysterious void in the middle of the ship)

You're an idiot.

Dear CCP dev team:
You owe me yet another new pair of pants.

Would anyone mind posting a few screenshots for those of us who can't access YouTube at the moment? It'd be highly appreciated. (Deployed; ship doesn't allow YouTube)
