I Need a New Ride

So, CCP Fozzie posted last week that they are thinking of changing half the command ship models to use the other tech 1 combat battlecruiser model. To be precise:

The plan is to change the visuals of the ships as follows (the names of the ships are not changing at all):
Absolution becomes a Carthum Harbinger
Eos becomes a CreoDron Myrmidon
Nighthawk becomes a Kaalakiota Drake
Sleipnir becomes a Boundless Creations Hurricane
I wholly support this change. Especially since it means this:
I love the Myrmidon hull and the thought of having a Tech II version of it appeals to me so much that I plan to trade in my Astarte for an Eos.

Click to Embiggen
This ship would be for small engagements where and the armour warfare links would boost not only local reppers but any friendly logistic reppers, as well as adding a nasty dose of Drones and Blasters itself. The flexibility of the drone bay gives this ship some more engagement opportunities than the Blaster oriented Astarte.

Can't wait to try it out.

    Man this one is going to be a love/hate change for people, but I think CCP is right - overall this is the way to go, even if it ruffles some feathers.
