While some of the EVE redesigned ships are more tolerable than others, I'm having a real hard time with the new Moa, Tristan, Condor, Stabber, Scorpion and probably most of the redesigns coming down the road.
It's not nostalgia. It's a difference in aesthetic preference. I'm a big fan of Chris Foss, Peter Elson, and John Berkley. I tend to like dynamic asymmetric designs, which is why I started playing this game to begin with. It was really the imaginative art that caught my interest most of all. I especially liked the cold military, faceless, off-balance design of caldari ships that left no room for human sympathy. But now all of those designs are being swept under the carpet.
I'm not oppossed to the new designs, but I'd like the option to buy back the old ones. So here is a shamless effort to drum up support for my hopeless little F&I thread.
