    Drake Kraken

    I was in wave 7, woke up to take a piss and ended up $1400 poorer lol My friend Copy passed away and I am purchasing this ship in commemoration of his memory and am going to tag it USS (UEE or whatever prefix suits upon release) Copy to carry on his memory as he was an avid fan of the Drake line of ships. I really didn't plan on buying it but I feel in some way this will carry on his name, he was a trooper.

    For the record, Imperium is in NO WAY associated with the organization currently known as "Imperium" (and formerly known as GoonSwarm, GoonSquad, etc.) in EVE. Our Organization was formed by initial backers of Star Citizen who came to www.starcitizenbase.com shortly after the initial launch of Star Citizen back in early October 2012, our name was voted on back in late October/early November 2012 In fact, our group was initially formed by people who were so turned off by Goon behavior in EVE (many of our founding members having previously played EVE) that they decided to take a hard line anti-piracy stance, in an effort to take a stand against that sort of play style, and one of our founding rules, that is enshrined in our Code of Conduct (CoC) is "Don't be a Dick".... Meanwhile... Many years later, in April of 2015, the Goons had gotten so much bad press over the years (pretty much for behavior that a lot of people would describe as the exact opposite of our "Don't be a Dick" rule), under the leadership of Mittani (or "The Mittani" or whatever) decided to change their name... and (I personally believe that) they chose their new name of "Imperium" as a direct snub of the "Anti-Goon" behavioral stance that our early founders had taken in the game. It could also be because Mittani like the image that the name conjures... although his vision (once again this is just MY opinion) seems far closer to some sort of neo-fascist version of the Galactic Empire from Star Wars or the Empire of Man from Warhammer 40k.... Don't believe me? Here were the reactions that some of the people on OUR forums had when WE found out about the name change: Ultimately, we aren't letting any of this change the way that we feel about Star Citizen or change our plans for how we want to play it, but hopefully it will at least put your mind at ease about the similarities of naming.

    This wasn't supposed to happen this way but it did.... I didn't really want to add to my pledge.... but CIG won the day as usual.... and I got one I didn't even get chosen to be eligible to buy one... but apparently they opened up a few Wave 1 that apparently didn't get purchased.... If you want one they now have a few warbond Kraken's available.... STANDALONE SHIP - DRAKE KRAKEN - WARBOND - WAVE 1 ATTRIBUTED Created:October 20, 2018 Contains:Drake Kraken and 2 items

    Thank you guys for clearing that up for me. I just wanted to point out that I take enormous pride being an imperium member above all else and will do everything in my power to not allow some shit/drama like this to happen to our organization or our beloved game. I do understand we will see shity players and moles and stuff like that perhaps happen in imperium but i hope we get to know everyone personally and protect what we hold dear. Thank you guys alot, -Max

    Need a web cam for FOIP?

    I predict that the FOIP webcam that Faceware will be selling will be pricier than most backers want to pay - I'm thinking it will bump around $200 give or take. To be worth the purchase, a webcam shouldn't peg above $100 I'm thinking. You can use cheaper webcams, but they will be plagued with no low-light capability and FPS speeds not to your liking WRT to FOIP. I've seen faceware's video and photos showing how much better it is in low light. Grain of Salt, imho So, there's the Logitech C920 (discontinued but available for and C922 ($70-$80) - both very good but require a light source if you're a gamer playing in just monitor light. Streamers like them, but they tend to use studio-type lighting. https://www.bestadvisor.com/webcams/logitech-c920-vs-logitech-c922 ASccording to reviews, the C920 ($50 on Amazon) could capture 1080p or 720p at 30fps. The C922 Pro Stream ($100), however, can do either 1080p at 30fps or 720p at 60fps) (The logitech Brio is $200) Razer has an option with it's own ring light (very nice for when you only have the light from your monitors) for $100 and it also handles 1080p/30fps and 720p/60fps with a 4:3 aspect ratio--> https://www.razer.com/gaming-broadcaster/razer-kiyo (order from Razer and it's free shipping)

    Your question is "Is Star Citizen's Imperium the same org as Eve's Imperium?" The answer is 'no'. We're not goonsquad, nor EVE's Imperium. We just share a name. I cant find the reference, but I believe our Imperium is older. Also, being violent, or generally shitty to one another is not favored in our org and a quick way to being dismissed. As far as "Can people infiltrate Orgs, and mess things up?" All the large orgs have moles, we have a division dedicated to rooting them out ( Intelligence ). The tools to secure and protect our assets are not developed yet in game, so I can't say for sure yet, but I hope its very granular to allow members to earn limited access and not allow a saboteur to hurt us without our neglect. For example, I want to be an engineer. I want to be granted unique access to the sub components of shields, but not access to the armory. And vice versa, the armory guy cant access ship shields.

    as time goes on, and we come closer to NPC crews being a ridiculously expensive money soak, and after seeing the cozy interior of this ship and its wacky steampunk exterior...it has become my favorite ship, against all odds.

    Got a Kraken, always wanted a carrier. While there is a lot of talk of this being used in combat situations, I think the kraken will really shine on the economic side. As being able carry and consolidate the fuel costs of a few economic minded ships, like the freelancer and prospector, and its escort could be huge in increasing profit margins. Though, that does depend on how much QF capital ships consume.

    Hi VOA, I think the author of this post is being rather misleading. The Kraken is warbond $1400 with cargo space for 3754 SCU. the 890 jump did concept several year back for 600$ but is now $890usd and only has cargo for several hundred SCU (word is 360 SCU). The 1600 mentioned by the author is from the old freight units system which unfortunately is still intermixed among the new SCU system on the matrix. Newer concepts should be more accurate. cheers, AJ

    et moi. Personally, if/when aegis or Anvil bring out a carrier we can buy, I'd take it instead.

    No doubt. For once CIG has been up front about it. Its still an extremely useful ship - look at it like the life saving escort carriers in the North Sea during WW2. Incredibly flimsy and ungainly, but utterly irreplaceable in what they did. If guarded and looked after well by a sufficiently sized group, this ship has amazing potential. I can't see it working too well for really small groups though. Its definitely something useful for Imperium sized Organisations.

    Just be advised that, unlike the Idris and other military warships, the Kraken apparently can't equip Military grade components according to the Q&A. Only Civilian and Industrial components are allowed. So effectively it's a civilian grade 'warship'

    Interesting Data - but I didn't get selected even though I posted my interest.... and I have a large account - so my case refutes this assertion below... (overall though its probably best that I didn't get selected since it is a bad time for me to open up my wallet more - since we are building a new house that is almost finished).

    Got mine. $1650 store credit and the non-Warbond Kraken does come with LTI, so I bought it. I didn't even bother the check the Warbond Kraken, and the buy options disappear after you buy one. Can anyone tell me if the Kraken Warbond comes with any bonuses or perks?

    Welcome to the forums @kosh_starglider, We have a lot of EVE and Elite players here so you are not alone. Some answers I put may refer to the game in its current Alpha state and what the end goal should be when its finished, I will try to be clear which is which. Sorry if they are long answers, its a big game. I'll be happy to chat with you all day on chat or VoIP, hit me up if you want to geek out. 1. Short answer: There are safe zones and criminal penalties, and all ships come with some kind of insurance and you will never loose a ship purchased with real money for good. Long Answer: There are different security levels in space. There are Armistice Zones in game which are currently close to Port Ollisar, and Levski. These zones disable guns, missiles, and self destruct. So you are generally safe from everything except ramming. There is also larger spaces called "Monitored Spaces". This is areas that are policed and any aggressive action will give you a wanted level (Like a star in GTA). Too many wanted levels and NPC's will shoot you on sight, and players will get missions to hunt you. But, being a bad guy is still fun gameplay if you don't mind the wanted levels. Insurance is also in game. Every ship comes with it and it's unlimited in Alpha, when the game goes live you will use the insurance that comes with your shipuntil it runs out then it should be a small fee to stay insured. Ships purchased with real money can never be truely lost, if you let the insurance lapse there will just be a larger fee than if it were properly insured. 2. They are working very hard to balance Keyboard & Mouse, Joystick, and gamepad players so no one has a distinct advantage. I fly 100% with Keyboard and mouse, others happily use Joystick and Throttle, dual joystick, joystick and mouse, etc. Not too many use gamepad but it works well with the xbox controller. 3. No subscription, just buy a game package. Technically this project is 2 games. Squadron 42 (SQ42) is the AAA single player game, and Star Citizen (SC) is the MMO. You can choose to buy one or the other, but I recommend both. The best deal on the website is this combo package that includes both games and a starter ship for $65. All the other hips and things you see for sale are to support the games development and are not required, ass when the game goes live, all ships will be earnable through gameplay. If you don't yet have an account be sure to use someones referral code (Mine) so you get a boost of 5k in-game credits, its not much but it helps. 4. Trading / Cargo Hauling, Mining , Merc / Escort, Bounty Hunter, Military, Pirate, Repair, Refueling, Rearming, Future Professions, Exploration, Tuning / Engineering, Medical, Salvage, Info Running / Hacking, Racing, Farming, Passenger Transport / Taxi driver, Luxury / Diplomatic Transport, Espionage, Science & Research, Search & Rescue, News Reporter, Space Tourist, Translator, Sataball Player, Ship Delivery. 5. All the professions are just starting to be developed so not yet, but there are youtube videos out there teaching you how to work it in its current version. 6. Arena commander is a good tool for teaching new players, but I wouldn't recommend learning in PVP, I'd use free flight mode to practice moving around and sparring with a friend. Again, if you buy the game and would like a tutor, I'll be happy to jump on VoIP and let you shoot at me in Arena commander and answer any questions. Star Citizen Base has their own Teamspeak server, I can also chat over Discord. I hope to see you in the Verse!
