faction talos please :D

some how get 9 guns on it, thanks


I'd rather have 4 guns and 100% damage bonus. Same damage output, longer overheat. Twisted

Ed: And potentially room for a small neut or two!


like it, perhaps 5 guns with 100% bonus, some 50% falloff role bonus too.

oh and at least 2 ultil slots, 5 mids, and enough drone space for 2 sets of lights.

I hope they make some faction BCs or T2 BCs with more varied functions. Waiting to train the skills to fly BSes is extremely tedious. It would be nice to have the option to focus your training on more powerful BCs instead of being forced into a bigger ship before you're ready, just because you want the bigger rewards.
Oh god.

I too would like to see pirate BC. I dream of this actually.

Would love to see an angel BC to compete with long range tier 3 bc, would love to see a Blood neuting BC, would love to see a Guristas drone boat as well.

Cynabals as they are aren't anywhere near as awesome as they used to be as most people have evolved and know how to battle them. Also with the introduction of tier 3 bc, nano fleets are much more common and cynabals just die. Machs are a bit big and op and tend to scare away fights, so I think if you introduce an Angel BC somewhere in between the mach and cyna, I would fly it pretty much all the time :) Imagine a nano cane with a bit of a damage bonus. ~ 500 mil cost, ~2500 m/s, ~ 700 dps.... would be a ton of fun and with the speed/neuts a nice counter to tech 3's in general.

Navy BC would be a bit tougher, where as you can already fit a BS-sized tank on BC and adding more base HP would just increase this. (Imagine a Myrmidon with 200k ehp) Would be fun and I wouldn't mind seeing this, but could get a bit ridiculous. That being said, Tier 3 BC's have pretty much made tier 1 and tier 2 bc's obsolete, maybe this could sort of balance the field.

TL;DR Version

I WANT PIRATE BC'S RIGHT MEOW!!!
Suddenly Spaceships.

the problem lies in the undereffectiveness of cruisers, the fact cs are terrible and that the bc hulls they would be based of of are already overpowered

pirate BC's is an old idea and quite popular - they won't be necessarily more damaging than say existing tier 2 but they could have bonuses , i.e. 90% webs for serpentis , drones and missiles for guristas , falloff and speed for angel, tracking and marauder like turrets to the sansha and the bloody raiders guys get neuts + web range. If a pirate cruiser is 2-300 mil and a bs is around a bil I'd think a BC will be around 4-600 mil. Their effectiveness offset by the price tag - dps and range less than tengu - it's perrrrrfect .


Also - it's about time we got Khanid BS (amarr torp ship) and EOM faction ships (missiles + hybrids).

This come once in a while. As some people mentioned before:


  • Tier 2 Battlecruisers already are extremely versatile and popular. Introducing yet improved hulls based on them without looking at tech1 battlecruisers first is in direct contradiction with the tiericide initiative.

  • We already have troubles having diverse, interesting hulls roles on this particular level. HACs, tech3 cruisers, battlecruisers and command ships currently are very close of each other on that field. Introducing a Navy Battlecruiser would aggravate the issue even further.

  • What needs to be done before having Navy Battlecruisers, in no particular order:

  • Have a look at tech1 cruisers and bring tiericide to their sorry little sad faces.
  • Fix tech1 battlecruisers as a whole. Most tier1 BCs are not good enough, some tier2 are just too good. You know we know you know which ones we are talking about Twisted
  • Make sure Command Ships have a viable role next to Battlecruisers (Nighthawk versus drake for example). Look at gang links. Eos. Eos. Eoseoseoseoseos.
  • HACs, they need love too.
  • Tech3 ships need to be put down, like a rabid dog drooling everywhere in the house, they are out of line. It doesn't necessarily means nerfing them to oblivion and beyond, but making sure that each subsystem configuration has a use and they don't overlap on other ships by making them different in role and purpose.


When that's done, and if the need for it is true, righteous in the divine gospel of the ship balancing light, then let's have Navy Battlecruisers, maybe. Pirate and new tech2 battlecruisers though are less of a problem if the roles aren't overlapping. Hmmmm spiky bikini Sansha battlecruiser with lazors pewpewnomnomnomnom. But errrr drifting out of topic here, we'd need to make sure current Sansha ships are tiericidead before that happens - we've heard horror stories about the Succubus and Phantasm being left to rot for all eternity in station hangars. That is not right.

I will love you long time if you fix the Sansha ships. Seriously.

yeah, sansha love would be very nice. I have a phantasm. I use it for exactly one thing: that one mission where you race to the accel gate while the poison gas cloud attacks you. Yep.

Still, I think a big part of this is that tier 2 and 3 BCs are some of the best looking ships in the game. It would be really cool to have some different paint jobs.

Throwing my 0.02 ISK in the mix.

First, thanks for the dev perspective, CCP Ytterbium.

Secondly, I'd prefer there be pirate faction BCs only. Drake, even after the proposed changes, will still be the hull of choice over he Ferox (my poor, poor, Ferox). We don't really need a CN Drake, and Drake fanbois will pitch a fit if we get a CN Ferox instead of a Drake.

Seondly, part two - aside from the endless arguments that would ensue over why we got a CN This instead of That, or a RF Other versus RF Another, pirate faction ships add a bit more flavor and variety in their bonuses and functions.

I've expected a strategic cruiser nerf for a while and have refused to train for them for that reason. I didn't expect it to take 3+ years though... P

I trained them for the purpose of stealing them from wormhole POSes.

    NH balance - is the Nighthawk actually underpowered? I see people saying that there's things that they'd like to be able to do but can't due to grid issues, but is this driven by "the NH is really underpowered/under-used compared to other ships in its class because of this grid issue"?

    Since Command Ships and Drake haven't been changed in the slightest for all these years, I guess we should treat your confession as a sign of sudden increase in PvP compherension within CCP? Big smile

    Not that Ytterbium doesn't have his head on straight, but ... dude, they hired Raivi and the Top Dawg (Unifex) also solo PVPs. Yeah, they've got some PVPers up there.

    Ed: Or, at least, Unifex *did* solo PVP and seemed quite competent. I haven't talked to him recently.
