Hey there guys,
I started this thread because i feel that gnosis needs some love.
I think its being used less and less because of changes made to the game as a whole.
Personaly i think ships that dont get used need to be improved.
Because why have a ship in the game if no1 uses it.
Also i heard that ccp was planning to look at the ballance of the battlecruisers and battle ships.
So this would be the right time to look at this ship aswell.
The Gnosis has been around for quite a while now.
When it first came out it was well ballanced vs the other bc.
In my opinion it was a good ballance.
Because it was slightly underpower vs the specialized bc.
But because of its role bonusses it made up for it with the new players.
A few years back all bc got buffed with the exception of the special edition battlecruisers.
This made the gnosis even weaker compared to the other specializedd battlecruisers.
At the time CCP stated that it was because it role was meant to be a ship for players to get into easily.
This is still true but given the fact that alpa players can now fly battlecruiser and battleships it effectively nullifies this useage.
I have some i idea’s on how to remedy this.
- Give the ship the ability to learn from kills. Each killmark improves its stats.
- Removing the low skilled requirement. Allow higher skilled pilots to get bigger bonus.
- Make it less slugish. In fact turn it into a cruiser on steroids.
If you have other idea’s idea’s please leave your post here.
Below i elaborate on my suggestions
From an evelore perspective i think it would be a really cool and a unique feature to allow this of jovian origin shipline to have the ability to learn. In fact from a lore persective any jovian ship should be(or become) a vastly superior ship compared to it sizeclass equivalent. It would be really great if these traits would remain after the ship gets transferred to other players. I feel these ships should become unique trophy ships.
Because of the changes that have been made to eve as a hole the gnosis has lost its purpose.
Its purpose basicly was a ship thats easy to skill into.
Given the short trials in the past this was a good way to give newbe a taste of bigger things to come.
Now that newbe’s can use the alpha state they dont have the time limitation.
So to give this ship a new purpose that perhaps fits better with its evelore would be a good idea.
Allowing higher skilled players to effectively use this ship would increase its useage a lot.
The other BC got a range buff to allow them to be used in fleet warfare better. Perhaps the gnosis can be improved in this aspectt aswell. But to keep it more unique perhaps go in a different direction and make the ship a lot faster. In fact make it equal to some of the faster cruisers. This could be a really interesting aspect for a ship of this type.
