I’m back!

Getting to finally show you guys these is very exciting! I hope you understand the delay. The drone changes outlined in this Dev Blog had a big enough impact on the balance for pirate cruisers and battleships that we really wanted to wait on posting these. Thankfully, that’s happened and we can get on with it!

So, there’s a lot of changes here but the precedents set in the frigate pass should be mirrored fairly well. Here’s some high level explanation on each of the Cruisers:


  • Role bonus to Afterburner speed
  • Major buffs to base speed and slot layout


  • Infinite Energy Vampire (remember these are getting a buff as well, check the thread here for details
  • Web range bonus instead of effectiveness
  • Adding a low slot and losing a high – the low slot should be more useful in most setups
  • Added drone bay/bandwidth


  • Medium drone powerhouse (remember the Medium Drone buff in the above linked Dev Blog)
  • We expect a lot of feedback here, I’ll do my best to answer questions as they come, but the basic thinking is that this is new and interesting, very powerful, and frees it from overlap with the Ishtar (which simply does sentries better)


  • Keeping the web bonus
  • Fixing strangenesses in the attributes by lowering PG some, adding some base speed to catch it up with other cruisers and finally giving it decent lock range


  • Went in expecting to nerf heavily and didn’t
  • Extreme fitting freedom limited somewhat now
  • Mostly the same old awesome ship
