Starship wishlist

Recommended Posts

After watching a few of Warcradle's Q&A sessions. It sounds like they plan to bring back some of the older models and some that were to come out with the Kickstarter. If they do, what models would you like  for them to come out with? 

Personally I would like to see the Praetorian, Tyrant, Templar, and Indomitable make it into production.

I managed to score my third Templar ight when they went out of production, so that was a victory adn a half for me, especially once they made the new 'heavy' cruisers.  Love to see them make a come back.  

 

ANd I can gree to see the Indomitable actually show up.

Lucky, I started up too late to get ANY.

I'll go with the obvious and say that the Aquan Medusa would likely be a huge hit if re-released.

That and the Bane.

I would like to score a Hydra as well, to round off the trio of BBs for Nikki's fleet. I think the Manta is too classic and iconic to not bring back, and I think a lot of Relth players will agree with me if I say the Scarab.

I still remember when the Manta first came out in V1, and was easily one of hte most powerful ships in the game.  Before dreadnaughts, it could face down your battleships and throw enough wings at you to drown most other fleets.  Ah, good times. :)

What I'd like them to do is to focus purely on the game side of miniatures to start with. To me that means releasing complete working fleets for each faction without "waste" within them. Considering how most fleets were fairly well fleshed out (for the major factions) that shouldn't be too hard to achieve. 

Then I'd like to see leviathans released! Because Spartan teased Firestorm with Leviathan ships for AGES but we never really saw them. One or two renders over the years and hints of "they are coming/we are working on them" but never did any fly. Failing that a second dreadnought class ship per major faction would be good (sue me I saw starwars recently - more big ships!) 

 

Honestly though I'd just be happy to see the factions re-released; some enhancements to the details and some modest changes, but overall see them fully back up to strength.

Leviathans have been hinted at since V1, though from the sounds of it they were closer to coming up with more workable ideas in the last edition.  The problem always was that they would be either rather underwhelming as a ship, or prove to be too much of a dominating force.  Last I'd heard they were looking at each arc (Fore aft and each side) being it's own quadrant and tracking damage seperately, very much like BFG Ramilles Star Forts.  

 

I would love to see the minor factions getting full fleets, making them each a viable option to play.  AT that point you'd likiely see a lot more Alliance and League based fleets.  I know if there was just a little more variety, I'd be all up in the Xelocians.

It would be nice to see every faction get rounded out better, but as I see it, if one  faction has a weakness, another faction in the same side has an answer. It would be nice to see everyone get some more stuff, but if everyone gets everything,  character goes out the window.

Just my 2p on the matter. personally I like rag-tag fleets:lol:

Nothing wrong with going rag-tag, I like 'em too!  

But there should be enough options that you can make a fleet that isn't just taking everythign available, adn still only having 4-5 classes of ship on the field.  I cna see a lot of minor races maybe not getting access to Dreadnaught scale vessels, only having 2-3 class of medium and smalls, enough to sink your teeth into, but not enough to, as you say, give everyone everything.

Part of me wonders if minor factions wouldn't be better not being fleshed out to full fleets. 

On the balance side of things if you introduce way too many factions all at full strength you can end up watering down the experience as you start to lose wider extremes of variation in play style and end up copy-catting them. In addition the way alliances work you can quickly end up destroying the meta and game themes when players end up with major and minors allied and having too much of both in each fleet for optimum results.

I think Spartan did start to head down that pathway, sure it gets people buying stuff and makes restrictions on what you can play less, but it often messes with the balance and also the "theme" nad visual appeal of armies; which I think is something that attracts players to games. 

 

I'd say minor factions are stronger having fewer ships, but more specialist ships and then either being allied together or to the major factions - a bolster supporting force whilst the major factions have larger and more diverse single fleets. The minors then add something different to heir allied majors or can unit into allied fleets that present  a complete fleet profile overall. That way minor races are shown to have used alliances to make up for the fact that they've not got intergalactic production to produce fleets that can stand toe to toe with teh major factions.

Templar with it's own separate stats from the Hauberk as well, make it a true heavy cruiser again and not a glass cannon gunship.

Bring back to the old style Sorylian Heavy cruiser, I can't stand the look of the new one.  The old Relthoza heavy cruiser was cool too.

Personally I'd like to see some more Tier 2 and 3 ships for Hawker.  Some cheaper Frigates/Corvettes, maybe an R&D cruiser or Intel Specialist Cruiser (Dirty Secrets MAR, maybe some Cyberwarfare or Decimator guns)
