It sounds a lot better than it is, the changes kind of prevent people playing at higher levels since it's too expensive.

@Protoavis Oh? They finally nerfed line ships?

Good riddance, I say. Maybe now I'll actually go back and play it. Especially now that you can get cubits from mining and not just farming mobs.

Only reason it is expensive at the higher levels is because of the titanium costs to repair.

Good luck finding and holding a water planetoid for long.

Not just that, the reward scaling, Defending yourself against lower level NPC's or lower level player gank squads (which exist now a lot more due to the reward scaling of beating higher levels being pretty huge) is costing you since you won't get any compensation for blowing them up. If you play cylon on pretty much any server it's really not worth it with the play population imbalance.

I find their are many cylon liners that still PvP but they also do a lot of planetoid mining too. Now that titanium is so prized it is worth hitting the mining ships on titanium planetoids and water was heavily contested for their rarity, now that a player can sell it for cubits the fighting for them will be more worth it to take from the other side.
You are right that their are more lower level gank squads on both sides but i have also seen on both sides all liner gank squads too. I also play on Scorpia as a cylon.

The addition of new ships has been asked and thank god they listened. Now that their is another way to get cubits is welcome big time by all the players and the ability to go for a basestar or battlestar will certainly help grow this game more.
