We don't want to do anything that discourages or chases new players away. So we need more credit ships not less.
At some point they may or may not move on to a more capable ship; forcing them to do it early is not good for anyone.
Fix the glitches, restore the balance.
i said a long time ago the whole balance schema should have been changed when the drones where added so that ship stats would balance out based on the total value of the ships, ie, including the value of the upgrades.
judging by the removal of the nostromo, BP are ignoring anything i can recognize as establishing a natural leveling/upgrade progression for new/casual players.
i agree, ive spent about $30 on this game and thats it, ive gotten where i am mostly by credits and the shame bigpoint brings on themselves by taking out more opportunities for credit players is ridiculous.
bigpoint should add more credit ships...
in my opinion there should be a ship for credits thats similar to the goliath except not as good... maybe 10-12 slots instead of 15... maybe cost... ohh idk... 5-7 mill creds?
and one similar to vengi with speed and power.... the bigboy is just too slowfor those credit players out there... the hp doesnt help when ur slow
Folks, I've played this game as an entirely free player, a wallet warrior and now a limited money player (premium, rebate, box doubler only). I spent my 1st 3 months as a Nostormo, boxing until I had the equipment for a Goliath.
I was also disappointed when I saw the Nostormo was removed. That is until I checked the stats and saw that the Piranha now has the exact same statistics as the Nostromo. So anyone who used to fly a Piranha now has better ship and anyone who used to fly a Nostromo has a better looking ship.
You truly only need the credit ships that are currently in the game. The Phoenix is free, useless, but free. The Liberator is a complete waste, as was the Defcom and Yamato. The old Piranha looked cool but it was too weak. The old Nostromo was fast when equipped but it looked dumb. The BigBoy is what it is--a poor man's Goliath.
Dark Orbit did you all a huge favor by taking away completely useless ships that you could not really farm in. But they left you the Nostromo (only now it is the Piranha) and the BigBoy, which those two ships are really what you should have been flying all along anyway.
And if the credit cost of these ships is too high for you, then you really messed up and did not build your Skylab. If you had, then you would never be griping about the cost of the Piranha or BigBoy.
There is only one quest that involved the missing ships, "First Strike", and it has been updated to only include the existing ships. This a great thing since many of use could never find enough Defcoms or Yamatos to pop for the old quest anyway.

Yeah i tottaly agree there should be more credit ships so that new players would have more interest playing DO.It would be nice to add another ship that cost 5-8 mil and won't be as good as goliath and another ship that would be better than goliath and would cost about 15-20 mil or so on.
Although I'm an FE ship, I do agree with you guys, I hate the design of the Piranha, it looks like crap. Never did like it. I like the Nostromo better. Everyone loves the Nostromo! But then, with a Nostromo, I can make my Skylab up and running in no time. From there I saved a few million, and recently bid on a Venge, now we're talking.. I do spend money on DO, recently the most, gotta cut down, but then, without Uridium, nobody can survive the money-warriors. So yea, bring back Nostromo, and leave Piranha its old specs. the bigboy is a completely useless ship, seriously. No chance against the Venge or Goli, what more a non-premium user... Think about this BP, you guys dont wanna go crashing down when the market drops.. lol.

You never know how much SAB-50 ammo is useful.
Once you lose lock, its not yours.
they coulda removed that laser that fires 40 dmg (lf1 completly useles cuz everyone who knows something about this game would buy mp 1)
and a credit ship strong as goliat or stronget would be over 100 mil creds cause peaple wouldnt waste 20 mil and up for goli in bids
