The latest episode in the In Development series reveals even more of the Retribution Expansion coming on December 4. It also reveals some other things but you'll find that out for yourselves by going right here.

Enjoy!

What is with balancing unusable T2 Ships like Eagle?

Ummm remind me to never NEVER ever get drunk in Iceland& get thrown into the slammer Attention
I'd hate to be the guy standing behind the guy 'packing heat' when he farts.

Looks like someone has been watching to many reruns of OZ on HBO Shocked

I think I understand why none of the female CCP employees raced to be 'first' on this blog

For something more substantial: right now theonly T1 destroyers that I see ever being used or talked about are supercheap miner ganking catalysts. What good is a drone destroyer except for level 2 missions?

Um, Icelandic humor is going to take some getting used to.What?P

Anyway, yay for tiericide. Go Fozzie. Shake things up. When you've completed your first pass there will be some strange new species at the top of the food chain. Hopefully they won't be as narrow or dominant in numbers as the current winners are. But either way you know we'll force re-balancing to be a never ending process. The way it should be. Smile

On the first page of comments, at last!

Very psyched that they are missile and drone boats! Couldn't be more needed-- and better suited to my skills.

Have the skill requirements and bonuses been posted to use each of them? (Will those of us who switched to training for Destroyer to Level V, while neural mapped entirely wrong due to CCP explaining that the "ship changes were coming in the *next* expansion" when they only meant certain capital ships, get to fly all of them and to full advantage?)

Unfortunate that the final amarr destroyer model ended up looking like a fat Coercer. Many of the concept images looked really good and, more importantly, different than the final design.

some of the concepts for the amarr destroyer... FRAGING AWESOME !!! i want them!!

on a more searious note can you all at CCP release some of the concepts for us to actually see, or is that going against some sort of developer rule?

This pleases me, but you should mention faction T1 cruisers are still not being looked at... poor navy caracal is a sorry excuse of a cruiser.

now we only need a POS revamp and T2 fix for the industrial, and the rest of the ship ballance and it will be perfect

I noticed this too. I just don't get how they select their ship designs sometimes. I mean didn't the fact, that amarr already had a destroyer, that looks very similar to the new one have any bearing on the chosen desing? If you're going to make a new model, then make something that actually looks new. Use the almost copy -design choices for the T2 or other variants.

CCP Fozzie is Raivi!!!
Tech 3's need to be multi role ships not cruiser hulls with battleship tank and insane resists
ABC's are clearly T2 in all but name.. remove drone assist mechanic.
Nerf web strength ..... module tiercide FTW role based instead of tiers please.

I hope this isn't going to be another case of "CCP bit off more than it can chew" and "stomach" (and we'll have to suffer with CCP showing a mouthful of undigested food and nasty belching).

A total of 40 ships are to be rebalanced? Guess you all forgot about that "incremental changes" policy.

I hope the new ship names fill in the missing letters in my 'A-Z of Eve Ships'

to be honest i think you shoeld have waited to rebalance t1 cruisers till you were ready to rebalance the t2 counterparts aswell

but that is my opinion
I do not agree with what you are saying , but i will defend to the death your right to say it...... Voltaire

My favourites are the last 4, maybe something like that can be a third destroyer line?
