  1. Well, got a CCU for the Ion from the Heartseeker Super Hornet, so we'll see how this goes. I'm not entirely sold on the Inferno
  2. The brochure states that you should use missiles against small fighters. The Ion seems to be more like a high DPS precision platform, as the estimated rate of fire is 38 shots/min. However, it does sound like it's designed to efficiently take down shields and still effective against armor and hull. While you do have missiles (it sounds like you have 16 S3 missiles stock [4 racks of 4 missiles], but you can change 2 of those racks, possibly to 1 S5 missile/torpedo), I don't think the Ion will be great against a lot of smaller targets. Sure the laser can probably serious damage if not destroy smaller opponents outright, I can't see it being very efficient given the lower RoF. The Inferno seems to be a little bit more rugged and general purpose, better against most targets, having a high RoF ballistic cannon instead of the mega-laser. It does have more armor than the Ion (although both still have medium armor), but it does have 1 less power plant, battery, cooler, and shield generator. While it sounds like it can be utilized to take on larger ships or small capital ships alone, the brochure does sound like it's intended to work with the Ion against small capitals to make up for the lower RoF of the Ion. I guess it comes down to do you want something more specialized or more of a general purpose ship
  3. Isn't that a total of 4 ships since you're buying 2 2-packs? The 2-pack includes 1 of each, so that's the pitfall if you wanted 2 of 1 version. I'll probably wait for the Q&A to clarify the missile/torpedo situation, but i'll probably jump on a 2-pack
  4. You can also buy both for $355 Warbond ($177.50/ship), coming in both exclusive skin and vanilla skin options
  5. Nice! Welcome to the Tesla fam!

    Shucks, there goes that theory...
  7. I'm thinking RIP Gladiator, hello San'Tok.yai!

  9. Idris-P Aftermarket Kit Q&A What is the purpose of this Aftermarket Upgrade Kit? This kit is designed to adjust the role of the Idris-P by providing equipment tailored to dealing with the swarm threat of carrier-type ships. By increasing the Idris-P’s anti-fighter capability, and adding a size 10 weapon, it allows the ship to be more aggressive offensively. What does the Aftermarket Kit change about my Idris-P? The equipment in this kit provides three changes: First, all four standard remote turrets can be replaced with the included Automated Behring M2C Point Defense Systems (2x S4 Hardpoints each). Next, a single Missile Turret equipped with two A&R Harrow Anti-Ship Missile Launchers (8x Size 3 Missiles), can be mounted in lieu of a standard Behring M3C ASA Turret. Finally, the kit provides a Size 10 Hurston Dynamics Exodus Laser Beam. Why beam weapons now? Beam weapons were originally off the table, but during development, we have been R&Ding different ways to approach them that avoid the traditional gameplay concerns with ‘hitscan’ weapons. We envision beam weapons the same way as analogue guns are to the Gatling guns in the ballistic weapons family: an incredibly high fire rate but generally low damage per ‘shot’, compared to, say, Laser Cannons that deliver a volley of fire rather than a stream. Of course, ‘low’ damage is a relative term when talking about the S10 Exodus. How will beam weapons compare to energy or ballistic ones? Beam weapons provide a much quicker projectile, therefore require less maneuvering to keep them trained on a moving target at range - a key benefit when firing from a relatively slow platform like an Idris. Another benefit, like all energy weapons, is the lack of physical ammunition requirements. A useful feature when mission endurance is required. Does the Kit make my Idris-P more powerful than an Idris-M? No, the Idris-M is still the best option for destroying big ships; out of the box, the railgun is much more powerful when the shot lands and its power requirements play better with the ship’s other systems. The M also has stronger armor and higher performance default components. Will I be able to have shields at 100% while firing the Exodus? The Exodus will require a significant amount of power to fire and it’s unlikely that all ship systems will be able to run at 100% whilst doing so (particularly when fire is sustained). Will the upgrade influence cargo capacity? No. The equipment involved in these upgrades does not impinge on the Idris-P’s cargo spaces.
  10. I feel like this sale was a little rushed and disorganized. Originally, the release was supposed to be for 10/22, 1 week after the close of submissions. Then, it changed from that, to the 20th/21st depending on your wave. I feel like they were trying to put into place measures to stop bots from getting these ships for the secondary market and having them end up in the hands of real people, but the different divisions within CIG didn't communicate to hammer out how the sale would go. From my experience, it's better to buy the ship as soon as you can and not wait. I remember waking up at 3 AM to buy an Idris-P and my CC got declined. By the time I got my CC sorted out, all the Idris-Ps were long gone. Fortunately, since I was concierge (don't know if that has anything to do with it, but that's the support channel I used), I was able to send a ticket and they assigned a badge to me so I could purchase one, so I really lucked out on that one.
  11. I think the sale is over, unless you're concierge, in which case, you might have a chance. It seems like if you were a wave 1-6 person, you had a hull reserved for you until wave 7, which all hulls were fair game. Voa was able to get one despite not having a slot in wave 7, which leads me to believe that wave 7 was pretty much just everyone in concierge. I think the Oct 31 cutoff was just put in place in the case the sale was largely unpopular and no one bought them. " THE DRAKE KRAKEN IS NOW SOLD OUT Please contact your Concierge Representative for assistance."
  12. I didn't risk it. I just ended up buying it. RIP w allet
  13. Since I'm in wave 6, do I have to buy immediately at 1800UTC, or am I reserved until Oct 31?
  14. Doesn't seem like it. There's no quantity listed on the purchase link. I think everyone in wave 1-6 has a hull and Wave 7 will be limited. Who truly knows...
