All Hail our New Glass Cannon Overlords
Today, or a recent day very much like it, CCP have released some more information about the new ships we'll see in the "Winter" expansion.
"We couldn‘t just give the Minmatar a new ship and leave the other factions out (NPC military escalation doesn’t work like that), so, in the spirit of mutually assured destruction, each of the factions have sent their best engineers and scientists to the drafting boards and will also be rolling out a new tier 3 battlecruiser."
Post is here.
In what appears to be from left field the new battleships that were coming are now going to be battlecruisers, but able to fit battleship weapons probably with some sort of power and CPU percentage reduction for the large pews pews.
This was not expected but it will throw the cat amongst the pigeons!
Right now the greatest minds in the game, and Goonswarm, will be scrambling to try and figure out the implications this may mean to their hellcat, smellycat, dogcat fleets.
As yet no hard information has been released, and no other images for the remaining races so any speculation is just that.
Enjoy your speculation theory fitting discussions!
