  1. I just posted this interview in the Gamescom thread - however....... How CR responds to the first question is so PROFOUND (and Important) - it deserves its own topic of discussion ...... ---------------- Basically he says that larger ships (even from a Connie on up) - but even more-so for a Capital Ship....... will have geometric cost increases more similar to the real world (not as extreme - but they are thinking more towards that model and having it take an Org. wide effort to earn the larger ships). ------------------------ This means if you are interested in any larger ships......... you should melt smaller ships to get the larger ships - since in-game......... the Larger ships will be MUCH harder to get (we knew this to a degree but it was never described by CR as being this exponential in terms of earned cost in the PU). -------------------------------- Fortunately I have (and many in Imperium) have already taken the pledge strategy for giving preference to the larger ships........ but there are a number of smaller ships that have recently come on concept sale where people may want to pass on (and save their pledge for the larger ships). For instance you may want to melt your recent small ship pledges for when the Polaris comes out (likely at Citizencon). The Anniversary Sale will also (likely like in past years) give people the option to pledge for an Idris and a Javelin. --------------------------------------- NOTE - this can also mean that it could be more cost effective in the LONG RUN to keep individual large ships than have smaller ships mixed into bigger ship packages even though they technically save you $$$ if you were to pledge for those ships separately (since again the bigger ships will be so much harder to earn in the PU) +++++++++++++++++++++++++ Another factor to consider is Tony Z's latest comments on NPCs in the PU and large ship crews (you don't have to buy or maintain their contracts individually) = you can contract for a large group of NPCs all at once = like contracting an Idris crew of 75+ NPCs at a time (obviously you can still have your individual close NPCs and Players inter-mixed into the larger crew) ============================ What do you think?........ are you going to adjust your pledge based on this new cost metric CR is talking about for earning ships in the PU? I don't think this means you shouldn't have any small ships....... but in general you should probably pool most of your pledge around any larger ships you want
