The Karkinos is already implemented, and it's a capital vessel, not a frigate.

On another forum I frequent he talked about possibly making a frigate with the same type of teleport+emp system that the karkinos has, for me that sounds awesome so I'm just poking at him to actually make it because I sure as hell want to fly it (please make it symmetrical).  :)

Asymmetry is the future! At least, according to Blackrock.

We'll see about the Scalar frigate. ;D

LINE SHIPS ARE BEST SHIPS, OLD TECH IS NEW TECH.

Like how the Iowa class battleships are still the only reasonable means of overwhelming fire-support (and oh my is it ever, VWs filled with explosives raining from the sky is soul-quaking terror) and thus a 70 year old design is only replaced by a yet to be built railgun equipped destroyer (which is admittedly even more horrifying when paired with a nuclear reactor capable of supplying 64 megawatts TEN TIMES PER MINUTE for the capacitors resulting in a projectile that delivers 10 megajoules of kinetic energy to a 5 meter accuracy at distances of 200 nmi (370km).

Assymmetry FTW! I love it! :)

I went outside one day, the graphics were amazing, but the gameplay sucked...
Prepare yourselves for miscapitalization errors! *evil laugh*

Rediscovering the joy that is piloting the Desdinova. Gale cannons have to be some of my favourite weapons in the entire game. I like to roll around with a bunch of frigates as well, some from other factions. The Scarab has to take pride of place next to the Des. though. The combination of a Gale cannnon (did I make it clear enough that I like those? :P) and a Sunjet on the front is despicable against pirates. I load it up with Capacitors and either Stabilised or Hardened shields and it tanks damage unbelieveably well.

That's awesome. Yeah, the Gale is so satisfying to use against unshielded ships, or for sneaking in a direct hit on a distracted vessel. That's more or less what the weapon is for.



The new Revenant in all its asymmetrical glory. It still has a flight deck and the Barracuda Drones. Unlike the Convergence, it's a drain on your fleet, instead of being a "backbone" for it.

:O it's… it's…. BEAUTIFUL. Are those universal mounts on the front, or are they missiles? And what's that small mount on the port side?

Any plans for more missile types Cycerin? I'd really like some more complementary stuff for medium and large slots. I'm lusting after those heavy versions of the gale, shard, and sunfire as well, perfect for a signature weapon on a destroyer or cruiser.

The asymmetrical Revenant is looking fantastic, though I'm surprised by the lack of backwards facing point defense mounts that seem a blackrock signature for protecting those vulnerable engines (your PD is SO DAMN GOOD).
