Today CCP announced these new changes in their latest blog. The MMO company also dropped in a few glimpses of what to expect come this Summer/Winter and something to look forward to next year.
To start this all off while I can still breathe after reading these changes, mining frigates have been given combat roles.
Players can also expect to find an entry level vessel for Mining Barges and defined roles for each barge. A massive listing of the new roles for each ship in the Frigate category with details on how each ship will work and how their EHP/Storage will compare to other ships.
On top of this news, CCP mentioned Destroyers will be next on the revamp with Cruisers/Battlecruisers following next.
We can expect these changes to hit sometime before the Winter expansion with the Destroyer revamp around Summer and Cruisers/Battlecruisers sometime next year.
With the complete overhaul to the way ships work and CCP’s new motto: “if you could fly it before, you can fly it now”, does the hardcore EVE Online fan want these changes and are these changes for the better?
