Around 5pm this evening a screenshot was posted on multiple platforms by JEFFRAIDER, CSMX candidate and member of Pandemic Legion, purportedly showing an upcoming change to the Tengu Strategic Cruiser. According to sources, the information was leaked from the CCP private test server, Chaos.
Chaos is the primary development test-server and nearly all new features are tested first on this server and it is usually at least one build beyond that which is on singularity. Chaos was a public test-server many years ago.
So far we only have the information for the DEFENSIVE sub systems for the Tengu Strategic cruiser, however we expect there to also be changes to other sub systems, not only on the Tengu but maybe throughout the Tech 3 Strategic Cruiser stable. It is also worth noting that things off the Chaos server very rarely make it unchanged through Singularity and onto Tranquility.
A number of people are also indicating that there may also be an incoming nerf to the Ishtar Heavy Assault Cruiser as well as the Tengu. Whether these rumors are true or not we will have to wait for the o7 show, which will be airing tomorrow Thursday 26th February 2015 on twitch.tv/ccp at 2000 Eve time.
With these leaks, this episode is now a can’t miss event and could shake up the ‘meta’ of Eve Online for months to come.
