It feels off putting to see certain ships have many and sometimes what feels uncessary number of skins, while other ships are sincerely lacking.
I understand that skins are designed to drive revenue and they likely took some analytics on which were the most popular ships and started with those.
But doesn’t it seem more reasonable in the long scheme of things to take 1 ship class, for every race 1 skin at a time until you’ve reached the desired number of skins for that ship class?
To me I don’t understand why an Aeon has more skins than all Stealth Bombers, or Covert ops ships for example. Millions of people are more likely to use A covert ops ship and stealth bomber over the next few years, than an Aeon.
This is a very frustrating concept to me, that I can’t see beyond. Perhaps help explaining why CCP chose to make a dozen skins for a VNI yet has less than 5 for many other ships, is mind boggling.
That makes no difference. Somebody has to buy the PLEX for real money to seed it on the market. As long as somebody is buying it, and somebody is spending it, CCP doesn’t really give a crap who is doing which part.
I’m getting that from actual pilots I know in-game. As well as from my own opinions on the matter, as I too like to fly big expensive ships.
That’s just flat out wrong. 99.9% of the time Supers are used to rat, and 99.9% of the time Titans are just used for bridges and bozon ratting. Most of the PVP they see is as part of a defensive super umbrella where they pretty much just drop defensively on small gangs trying to gank ratters/miners. (No need for potato mode there.)
The type of massive super fights where you’re in potato mode zoomed out to see the battlefield are in fact excessively rare. We’ve seen two so far this year, and even if it holds at that, that is a huge statistical anomaly.
The majority of the supers and titans are only used in these battles, and for ratting only you see it. Great stuff. Under these talking points the skins are just as useful as character clothing: Not at all because you cannot show them off most of the time.
This topic was not intended to draw a direct comparison from Titan ships to the rest of the ships in game, it was to draw an over all comparison that some ships have vastly more ship skins than others. My inquiry is why is this, and why does CCP feel the need to what seems jump all over the place with skins instead of giving every ship a fair shake.
“Your opinion” is not evidence, and talking with people in game is also not evidence. Analytics that show how many titan skins purchased, versus let’s say Cerberus skins purchased, would be evidence. I don’t care “What you think” or “How you feel” or “Who you talk to” Those are emotional assessments not based with evidence. Not using actual stats, and facts leads you to becoming a democrat, don’t ever do that.
