EVE Online: Updating Capital Ships
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

CCP Games has released a new developer blog focusing on upcoming changes to its sci-fi MMO, EVE Online. The post explains changes to the capital ships used in player vs player action and is the latest in a series detailing some of the new features coming in the next expansion, titled Dominion.

Over the last couple of years, both the size of capital fleets and the use of capital warships has grown at an exponential rate. "Hot Dropping" has shifted from being something done to decide the fate of a war to becoming a blood sport that major alliances play with each other, with dozens of capital wrecks littering the battlefield after such engagements. Factional Warfare even sees regular use of Carriers and Dreadnaughts.

With the current number of active capital ships on Tranquility, they can no longer be looked upon as tools of the elite. This evolution of warfare has made it apparent that capital engagements are not some random occurrence anymore but simply another level of combat in EVE. Some of these ships have withstood the test of time better than others. So, now we're going to walk through the various classes of PvP capital ships and explain how we see them fitting into Dominion and beyond. Traditionally, we would start from the bottom and go up, but I'm not traditional.
