Well, Phoebe is here and it's no understatement to say that CCP's promise to shake things up was far from empty.
Sov is changing hands. The UI has never been more useful. And market PvP is out of control.
Of course here at WiNGSPAN Delivery Services, the most important changes are those made to our shipment vessels, primarily stealth bombers. And as of this writing, I'm glad to report things are looking inferno-bright for our operations.
It's true bomb launchers saw some nerfs, with increases to ship signature radius and greater bomb travel time/vulnerability.
But since our number one product remains torpedoes, these setbacks really didn't impact our fulfillment capabilities. Instead, WDS agents are now benefitting from:
- Increased ship velocity
- Increased capacitor
- Increased scan resolution
- Increased CPU
- Greatly increased eHP
- Greatly increased cargo space
What does all this mean? Faster delivery acquisition, less vulnerability to hostile drones, more room for ammo or alternate fits, and easier, more creative fitting.
If that's not a buff, I don't know what is.
Additionally, WDS pilots can now benefit from Polarized Torpedo Launchers. Sure they cut your resistances to zero, but that's not really an issue for our line of work.
Instead, we benefit from a 30% increase in delivery rate PLUS a 200% increase in loaded ammo storage. That means reloads are basically a thing of the past!
Finally, Phoebe's expansion of exploration in both known and WH space is fantastic for cloaky ships. Now there are more ways for our pilots to supplement their income, as well as more customers to be found in the depths of New Eden.
It truly is an amazing time to be delivering ammunition.
