I think the offer is pretty nice of CIG. They're giving you options: do nothing, CCU your Cutlass to a Buc for free, or take $10 off the purchase of a Buc.
I completely agree. I think there has been such a scathing reaction to the Cutlass from the owners (and community) that it's only natural for CIG to over-react and put so much effort into righting their perceived wrongs that the Cutlass becomes one of the best hulls in the game.I would much rather have the Cutlass than the Bucc. This game has a lot of light fighters, but there aren't many medium class multi-role ships like the Cutlass. Plus, I think it's going to be a cool ship if you have a friend you want to jump onboard, without being a giant expensive multi-crew ship.
I'm confident that at some point the Cutlass will get its due diligence from CIG and definitely be worth having. They're completely reworking the flight mechanics for it, and what we have right now is just a placeholder.
I'll pick one up at some point, but I'm just torn on which version to get.
The Bucc? Really just don't have much interest in it. Already have some excellent light fighters, but I think it's cool that Drake has one now too. The more variety the better.
But how many of those hours are from 2.3 (too bad that they did not made a separate entry for 2.3 in the leaderboards)? I tried, but can't play Battle Royale anymore.
Source!! I've not heard this. :sneaky:You may be soon able to put 2xSize 2 + 4xSize 1 fixed weapons on that 350R. Imagine it with 2 Tarantulas and 4 Longswords!
I have a suspicion that we'll be rewarded for poll participation. Just like the April Fool's joke, the Shubin mining application.....Turbulent isn't going to go through all that effort for nothing. CIG want Citizens to participate. And they've been rewarding participation.
They just announced that the weapon mount system was changed.Source!! I've not heard this. :sneaky:

I'm not saying we'll get another $5 coupon, but I wouldn't be surprised if we got something....
This could potentially alleviate some of the PIP problems that mismatched loadout sizes presents.So now, two twin-linked Size 2 weapons are only taking up 2+1=3 points (instead of 4 points). A Size 3 ship hardpoint will be able to install two fixed (and twin-linked) Size 2 weapons.
It was a bad idea to put different sized hardpoints on small ships, because this is strongly limiting the viable configurations.
Counting the weapons available to rent or buy individually, from 5 types of size 1 weapons and 8 types of size 2 weapons, only 4 or 5 combinations have a good projectile speed match:
Bulldog (2650m/s) + M4A (2600m/s) - close enough, but low damage
Omnisky III (2500m/s) + Badger (2500m/s) - perfect speed match
Longsword (1600m/s) + NN14 Neutron Cannon (1600m/s) - perfect speed match
Longsword (1600m/s) + Tarantula GT-870 (size 2) (1510m/s) - this is not so good as a speed match, but is one of the best S1+S2 combinations now (because both are ballistic and with reasonable damage for their size)
NN13 (1700m/s) + NN14 (1600m/s) - although the speed difference is borderline here, it also works because you will use these from close range only.
What I would like would be a Size 1 high damage per shot weapon (ballistic, if possible) that could be paired with Sledge II (2100m/s). Size 1 has a big gap between 1700m/s and 2500m/s (for currently available weapons).
It's to early to do a thorough balancing, but since we'll play this game in alpha stage for a long time, some kind of basic balancing should be done in the meantime.
