Anyone know if RSI plans to sell the Retaliator again?  What did they sell for originally?

None knows of this since it is a limited ship. If they sell it again (which they might) it will probably not be with LTI. 250 dollars. Go ahead and ask to buy one from support tho and they might sell one to you. I bought 3 idrises, retaliators and other stuff after the time ran out from them.

Did you buy those Idrises at the same price with LTI?

That was much more than I expected or can afford. I will have to work hard in game to earn those credits!

I'd guess the Retaliator will be on sale again at the big event on the end of November. Asking CIG would be the second chance to get one.

LTI does not equal Limited, no. LTI = Lifetime Insurance.

$1000 for the Idris-M and $1250 for the Idris-P

 

But wasn't the Idris-P a stripped down version of the Idris-M? So why would it cost $250 more? :huh:

Not exactly stripped down. They swapped the capital weaponry for a fighter bay, the $250 more is for turning a corvette into mini-carrier.

Doesn't have the M also the fighter bay?

I thought so too. From what I see here, they stripped off the rail gun and spinal mount that had the anti-ship missiles and 'replace' it with cargo space and speed (which is simply a result of the removed weaponry and the missile loading bay having been cleaned out). So I don't see why this would justify the increased price. For that money, you'd be better off buying an Idris-M and spending the extra $250 on loading up your launch bay with fighters or something.

 

That's why I find it strange. They strip the ship of the most potent weaponry and then ask for a higher price. If anything the Idris-P should cost $250 less because of that from my perspective. The 'increased cargo hold' is just a result of the automated missile loading bay no longer being present.

 

So I don't grasp the logic behind it, nor why anyone would buy an Idris-P for $1250 if they could get an Idris-M plus bonus Retaliator (or something else worth $250) for the same price. :P

The logic behind it is that the Idris was supposed to be a very limited ship sold only during the first 24 hour livestream (and sold out pretty damn quick if i recall correctly), and the people who pledged for it would probably get pissed if they simply offered it again for the same price and the same specs....that's why they decided to create the Idris-P which would be worse spec-wise but still cost more, to keep the people who got the original Idris (now called the Idris-M) from feeling ripped off.

 

People seem to quickly forget that the Idris P and M are both limited and will probably not be for sale again so talking about the ship prices as if they are still for sale ( and while disregarding the reason for the price difference in the first place) is moot.

 

I personally would not mind if for instance they made the Vanduul Scythe available again, but i'm betting a lot of people would be outraged if that ship didn't get a higher price but worse weapons like they did with the Idris.

 

For all i care they make all ships available one last time just before the end of LTI deadline, give me a chance to get that 350r i missed out on, but if not due to some people getting offended or whatever, i'll get one in game....it's all good =)

Yep ^ thats why

 

I think the only way they can bring ships back is if they are more expensive

Ah, alright. Guess that makes sense then; even though it still feels like a very poor reason to justify these sales. I just hope I can earn my Idris ingame... :)

I too was able to buy an Idris-M after the deadline passed.  Basically you ask to be put on a list and when one of the 100 that was sold is reclaimed for a refund or RSI credit they sell that one to the next person on the list.  At this point the list is quite long but it might be possible to still acquire one prior to launch.  In addition the ships still come with LTI because they were originally sold with it and you are essentially buying what they returned, no changes.

 

As far as the difference between the Idris-M and Idris-P, my understanding is that the P has a stripped down weapon loadout in exchange for a larger cargo capacity.  100 (M) vs 120 (P).  The real perk of the Idris-M is that it will not be possible to just buy military grade versions of ships in game.  The P will be available with the right amount of credits but the M, which has an upgraded reactor, railgun and ship to ship turret won't be purchasable by just walking into a dealership.  In addition having the LTI on the ship is an added bonus for both hulls.  I am still not certain if the LTI covers the hull or if it includes the stock loadout.
