Mining Barge Overhaul Tuesday, September 13, 2016

As well as a review of the role of the Rorqual, Mining Barges will also receive a significant overhaul. This includes both a visual update to bring them more inline with the new art style for ORE hulls, as well as tweaks to improve their functionality and efficiency in the field.

Purity of the Throne Tuesday, September 13, 2016

As the coronation of Empress Catiz I draws closer, there are those who consider her ascension to the Golden Throne of Holy Amarr both unjust and improper, based on archaic views that call the purity of her Udorian heritage into question.

With the might of the Imperial Armed Forces at her heel, and both the Ministry of Internal Order and Theology Council ratifying the views of the Purity of the Throne movement as heretical, bounties have been placed on the heads of their members.

The Empire is encouraging capsuleers across the cluster to strip the heretics of their colors, and wear them in support of the ascension of Catiz I to her rightful place as the leader of the Amarr Empire.

Slasher Redesign Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Cheap and versatile, the Slasher is one of the most common vessels to be found in the Republic's space.

Now sleek and smooth, with an air of Matari aggressiveness, the hull has had a significant redesign that has been carried over to its tech II counterparts, the Claw and Stiletto.

Maulus Redesign Tuesday, September 13, 2016

A high tech little frigate with incredible electronic warfare capability, the Maulus is a staple electronic superiority support frigate of the Federation Navy.

Now sharper, more streamlined and aggressive, its hull has been given a restyle which has also benefited the tech II variant, the Keres, and the Maulus Navy Issue.

Executioner Redesign Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Designed to counter the Matari frigate menace, the Executioner is a fast, agile weapons platform that sacrifices the usually heavy armor typical in Amarr design for maneuverability.

A subtle design pass over the hull of this popular little frigate has made sure that it, and it's tech II counterparts the Crusader and Malediction are the forefront of the Golden Fleet's parade formations.

Capital Module Balancing Pass Tuesday, September 13, 2016

With the 118.8 release, a balance pass will be taken over a selection of the anti-subcapital modules available for capital ships with a view to making them conform more with the standard characteristics of subcapital weapons.

The main changes made will be to “high angle” weapons, and further details are available in the thread linked below.

Bantam Redesign Tuesday, September 13, 2016

A strong and sturdy little chassis that was originally conceived as a mining frigate, the Bantam recently had a radical redesign to turn its blueprint into a logistics and support platform for the Caldari Navy's light, fast border patrols.

Now more visually distinctive than ever, the Kirin logistics frigate has also benefitted from this overhaul and update.

Probe Redesign Tuesday, September 13, 2016

A bulky little frigate favored as a scout and cargo runner, as well as a rookie mining vessel, the Probe is widely loved by many Matari pilots due to its robust subframe and heavy armor.

With this redesign, a subtle update of the vessel's visual appearance gives a more modern Matari look to the hull, which is passed on to the DNA of the Cheetah class covert ops frigate.

Griffin Redesign Tuesday, September 13, 2016

An infamous Caldari designed frigate with a fearsome sensor suite that can wreak havoc against much larger hostile vessels, the Griffin is an incredibly versatile electronic warfare platform.

A full redesign from the ground up gives this cutting edge frigate the look it deserves, which also carried over to the tech II Kitsune, and the Griffin Navy Issue.
