    It looks absolutely amazing, but I don't see myself buying it with the very specialized role it has.

    It's cool, I like it, but Combat sub-specializations are easily something I drop down to the Acquire-In-Game category.

    Outstanding looking ship. Im looking forward to earning it ingame.

    I really like that they have added the flight rdy proce of 330. Im liking the transparency and it also suggests there wont be massive changes made.

    This fits perfect with my EWAR/Intel/BlackOps fleet. Nabbed one to go with the Sentinel/Sabre/Herald. Debating for the need of my Tali Base, but holding onto it in case of more diverse modules.... one day.

    Seeing as how they say it'll be $330 when flight ready, I'm interested to see how much it'll change in the concept phase.

    Hate leads to fear of capital ships. Fear leads to purchases. Purchases lead to the empty side of your wallet. Bad for you, the empty side is.

    It is a gorgeous ship, but I question how much it will be in use early on in the game, and if that makes it worth $300. I mean.. looks alone it's worth it! :slight_smile:

    I got the warbond version. I just got a pay raise, and I needed to blow money on something...

    Fuck.
    I have been agonizing over my fleet, how to purpose it, and in one sentence you gave form to the thought I was trying to formulate and label. I was stuck in such linear thinking.
    Thank you. Also, fuck you, because now I have to think more, but mostly thank you.:flag_ca::black_heart: :middle_finger::yellow_heart::flag_ca:

    My fleet is for filling the holes that people need to have a good time. Say you want to do X. Today, X is a fuel run. Most Testies may only have an Aurora or possibly have upgraded to a fighter. Since most people can run escorts, I'll have the bigger and more expensive ships to fill the gaps. Tomorrow it can be Salvage. I have a Reclaimer and a Cateepillar. It might be exploeation, to which I have a Carrack.

    I sold all of my fighters except one to spend the funds on fun ships to give other Testies a good experience and to help them earn the ships they want in the verse. I also have ships for reallocating assets :slight_smile:

    I figured that I could be that guy who flies the big, slow ship that generates jobs for others. The person who could offer a job to his orgmates and offee them a little higher than average wages.

    (Clearly the Eclipse is a bomber and not a fighter and therefore does not go against my 1 fighter limit)

    ....But could it be used for smuggling? Swap the torps out for space-meth?

    Not sure I want to spend that kind of money for a bomber. It is pretty but not sure it would be anything more than a trophy in my hanger.

    You're a noble man Mr Tank. A majority of us have made it known that our fleets are open for loaning/use by other TESTies. However, you've gone a step beyond that, and seem to be tailoring your fleet completely to loaning out. Kudos.
