Sarmatiko – yes, the same guy who brought us the first glimpse of how the new stealth bombers looked like – released today a new video featuring the Prize Ships to be given away in the upcoming Alliance Tournament X.

Cambion and Etana (ATX prize ships) from Singularity client build 385860

Video: Check out the Pimp-Mobiles to be Awarded to the ATX winners.

Cambion

The Cambion is the result of Caldari State Executor Tibus Heth’s insistence that modern weapons of war be able to continually outperform previous standardized versions. While that effort is rumored to have been hit-and-miss (resulting in great scientific advances at the cost of a stunning array of misfortunes), it is absolutely undeniable that the Cambion has been one of its great successes, a feat that likely could not have been achieved in a different political milieu.

The Cambion an out-and-out brawler. Taking note from the Merlin — a versatile combat frigate in its own right — this ship is intended to rush in, overheat everything it runs, hit hard with everything it has and get out moments before death can find it.

Caldari Frigate Skill Bonus: 5% bonus to shield resistances per skill level.
Assault Ship Skill Bonus: 5% bonus to light missile and rocket rate of fire per skill level.
Role Bonus: 115% bonus to light missile and rocket kinetic damage and 50% reduction in heat damage taken by modules.

Etana

The Etana came into existence as one of numerous secret projects under Tibus Heth’s rule. As part of those revolutionary and paranoid times in the Caldari State, political emphasis on technological research was split between a need for inexpensive improvements in warfare and a need for advances in espionage and the arts of secrecy.

One of the outcomes of that research was an improvement on the Osprey, whose versatility and low manufacturing cost made it a natural candidate for improvements. The resulting vessel maintained the shield defenses known among similar ships of its type, while adding an array of remarkable black ops capabilities. In fact, it is reputed that initial prototypes were employed to spy on interstellar activities near the recaptured Caldari Prime, as part of Tibus Heth’s continually growing espionage initiative.

Caldari Cruiser Skill Bonus: 155% bonus to Shield Transport and Energy Transfer Array range and 20% bonus to Shield Maintenance Bot transfer amount per level
Logistics Skill Bonus: 17% reduction in Shield Transport and Energy Transfer Array capacitor use per level
Role bonus: 40% reduction in the amount of heat damage absorbed by modules, in CPU need for Shield Transporters, and in power need for Energy Transfer Arrays
99% reduction in CPU need for cloaking devices, the Etana can be bridged by a Black Ops ship.

      I hope CCP pursues this, BLOPs logi would be a nice addition to cloaky hotdrops.

        well whats interesting they want to work on black ops BS or seams that its something planed to be worked on maybe its the start of all the new content for it

        may be worth spending the isk on a black op BS soon >_>

        Would it? A BLOPs gang either totals its target and leaves or dies in a very short amount of time a BLOPs logi doesn't seem of much real use to be honest.

        While limited in versatility, this can be done with T3s. The loss of range can hurt a bit, but they get a transfer amount in return.

      True but what if that idea finds its way into a regular T2 ship or module on Tranq?
      BOs need an incentive to be used more often and the idea of BO gangs is awesome yet you rarely see them apart from a few ganks on lonely carebears.

      Why not? History shows that other tournament ships have been flown and killed plus it will only be used in gank situations where risk is minimal. Not everyone has a tiny pair of balls such as yourself.

        You mean gank situations where you don't need a logi?

          perhaps they'll use them to gank instead of for logi for the lulz.

      Errrr, so which DNS has its first round fight in Alliance Tournament X with The RONIN at 1700 on 1st July?

      Is that the DNS which didn't enter ATX or the one that did?

      I'm confused, but obviously not as badly as you are!

    They need to be making these available for everyone, and as expensive as Carriers/Dreadnoughts

    Imagine these and the past rewards as very expensive PVP tools, would make for some very interesting tactics/fights

      It is a reward for beating the best competitors in a pvp tournament; of course it should be unique. The guys who get these will deserve it.

    Love the rewards concept for AT's but total waste of resources. Never see them on live. Might aswell be a cock flying in space.

    Should be big bpc run for this stuff winning AT, have them as very rare drops from other shit so at least they get used.

    Faggots at CCP instead of doing this could have had 2 more ships people could use in the game each time.

    So a really sick Rocket-Brawler-Frig and then a Black Ops Logi?
    DAFAQ, IM NOT AMUSED CCP.

    Base the damn ship on the Caracal and make it a missile spitting ship that would make an Officer Fit 100 Mn AB Active Tank Solo Tengu look like some piece of shit in comparison.

    Glad to see another ship that will never see the light of day, even if it is used.

    So a really sick Rocket-Brawler-Frig and then a Black Ops Logi?

    Make it based on the Caracal Hull, and make it better than an Officer Fit 100 Mn AB Active Tank Tengu.

    All the other AT cruisers could pvp, this can rep your black ops battleships, but wait, they are targeting you and you 25 billion isk cruiser.

    This is garbage, and i am mad!

      Tell me more about how you would actually use the frig in a roam, but not the cruiser.

      Oh wait thats right you wouldnt use either anyway.

        The AT ships are used in PVP, not often but they are.

          Yeah and Logistics are NEVER used in PVP. Ever.

          You know what, that Etana might encourage Garmon to have actual fights instead of his constant, and yes pretty cool to look at, kiting/ganking tactics.

    Not sure if CCP understands Blops. People drop in with overwhelming force, kill everything then get out. They don't drop into a fight against normal ships which are better than Blop ships in a fight usually, then sit around and fight outgunned with a 30b isk logi which is called primary first even if it isn't the most expensive and rare ship on the field.

    June 13, 2012 at 1:16 am Reply
    1. Kratisto

      Sometimes covops gangs are used for battlefield scavenging, either via gatecamps for stragglers or warping to logged off hostiles during large battles. a logi built to cloak could be particularly useful then, if there were hostile scavengers fighting to save their logged off comrade. It happens quite frequently, actually.

      I mean yeah, its too expensive and unique for practicality, but the ship could find a role. Next youll complain that CCP was wrong with the Mimir or adrestia ship role; i mean clearly its only use pits a 30b isk ship against a pack of regular ships.

      June 13, 2012 at 2:07 am Reply
      1. Scar

        Nah I won't and didn't complain about the Mimir or Adrestia. Those ships can do hit and run tactics. Logistics are ment to remain on the field actually repping people against damage. In order for this to be practical you'll need 2 or maybe more sitting there trying to protect ships worth fractions of them. Don't know about you but I'd fit up a repgoo or just drops tons of falcons instead.

            You seem to buy into the idea that an alliance wins the blueprint. In reality only a very few high up members of the winning alliance ever see the blueprint, ships made from the blueprints or any isk gained from selling said ships. Rank and File members might as well not even be in the alliance as far as Tourney winnings go.

    A black ops bridgeable LOGI!

    Bet CCP is making that thing to test the waters of bringing in the real one. Just need an Amarr version and the world is set.

    And I hope to god that after 3 months of the ATX being done that they seed the BPCs of theses ships (and all the other ones) into loot tables (but make them very rare) so as the rest of eve can enjoy these awesome ships (one can hope and pray).

      Yeah I think so too! The bait covert cyno ship dies way too quick and the only way of ensuring it lived was to fit shield reps on a covert t3 which was kinda gay… This is awesome!
