We have been doing some calculations on the range of ship chassis that we currently have, and the range of chassis that we intend to add, and it has come to our attention pretty quickly that we are going to need to shuffle slightly the range that are currently in the game.
This will mainly affect the Marauder range, but will also touch onto the Tier 1 Ships (Frontier, Deepcore and Raven)
We are having to make this change so that we can offer a decent curve for you all to work through, and with this a logical stat range through these ships.
The main change that you will see is that the Marauder range will be reduced down to JUST the standard Marauder. The rest of the range (the Aegis, the Astral and the Odyssey) will be retired, and no longer available. This means that all new captains will start in the standard Marauder, then will need to choose the path that they want to take, and start working toward the Tier 1 Ships, The Frontier, Deepcore and Raven (or the Polestar if you want something more multi-role, but this will be more expensive, and require more training to get into!)
The Tier 1 ships will then have a slight tweak, and you may find that your choice of ship may lose a slot, but then may gain a slot.
Obviously, this is not ideal, and we would have preferred if this was noticed before we opened up the doors, but it is unfortunately a change that will be happening over the next few days. We are still finalising the stats on the chassis range, but will announce closer to the time when we are making the switch.
If you have purchased any of the affected ship chassis with TSC, we will be contacting you directly over the next day or two.
If you are currently in one of the extended Marauders, please start now with training to move into one of the Tier one ships (they all require one skill at level one, the Polestar is of course more expensive than the specialised chassis)
We will do all that we can to make this transition as painless as possible, but of course we appreciate your support and understanding
