Here is a couple ideas for some new battleships, and one change.
The one change is, Nestor: Just give it covert cloak capability, allow it to go threw blops bridge, but as with the line, no lighting covert cynos. And for those who are going to say the Nestor already has too many bonus’s, my only answer is: who uses Nestors other than Supers/Caps for a instant mobile depot…
idea 1: I was going to suggest a small carrier type battleship that uses fighters at short range but there’s already a post.
Idea 2: Logistics Battleships, there is already the Nestor, but why not take it a step further and add a T2 Battleship that is logi-ish. Something like Rohk or Abbadon hull that is just a brick that can do logi. Read another post (Solo logi) that said implementing a bastion type module for logi would go with an idea like this, but thats up for debate wether it would be worth to have subcap fax’s.
Idea 3: So a big complaint about large scale engagements is that alpha doc is the only way to go, so why not make a ship that fits into a active mitigation role instead of passive (Boosts). Again back to the Tier 3 hulls, you could make a battleship that has 4 highslots dedicated to active shield/armor link that you lock up a friendly and use the module to then extent your shield/armor and share some of the damage. Rule of this could be that one ship could only be affected by one of these modules at a time, something like that just to keep it simple. But with this you could have 1 ship link to 4 other ships and take 40-60% of the damage from them and apply it to the ‘Vanguard’ Ship. Also this ship could not be affected my the module type either, cause chaining might be too much of a headache. But the overall idea would be that you have a ‘Vanguard’ ship that has 2-3x the tank of a normal mainline dps so that you can have 10 ‘Vanguard’ ships and 40 dps ships and be able to take on a much larger foe and stand a chance. Complexity never hurts, just adds more to theorywarrior.
Idea 4: So to the idea before at fan fest for directional fire ships, maybe add capital class weaponry to the table for that. But I could possibly think further than that I couldn’t think of anything, but a battleship-capital idea fits the whole frigate-battleship idea stealth bombers do. Hmmm, maybe even make it blops… Interesting, I’ll leave the up to more theorycrafting for later.
Any other ideas?
