    Goliath is much needed for base defense, especially with the base attack themed ships we have seen recently such as the Thresher. Heck, maybe even a second version of the Goliath would be nice as well.

    are we talking the actual MCX or the horrible MC? lol 
    MC, not the MCX. Just to clarify.

    MC, isn't as good as the mcx. Not many people are going to go for it. rather have the Goliath to help out base defence. but if whteever is chosen. it should be in tier 4.

    When is the dreadnought going to make an appearance again? And has the team thought of adding another tier to forasaken missions for past raid hulls or for exclusive blueprints. ~O) *-:)

    I say Goliath. The past set of raids has had NUMEOUS ship designs for attacking bases, and FvF battles. Players who are just reaching the level 40 stage or just above need something available for base defense vs the dreads, mcx, threshers, mercury, etc etc.. And if this last raid is any indication of toughness for next raid, they should be a tier 4 option, as many people who do not super-coin raids would not be able to get tier 5.. Speaking of.. "SARAP"---- will this be a point-based raid or something other than 50-fleet setup?

    Tier 5 = Goliath
    Tier 4 = MC

    Goliath is too powerfull to be in tier 4 and MC isn't good enough for tier 5

    Would love to see a new type of hull that was designed as a mobile defense platform. The Goliath is nice but something with more resistance or weapon range but slow. The Goliath is ok in some areas but with so few weapon slots its more of a sitting road block then a defender.

    Something with increased Anti Mortar or Anti Missile range with decent resistance. Keeping it slow would keep the use low in raid events.

    On an off topic note to the ship choice, would someone let me know the last time the Anti Missile weapons were offered?

    Triton?

    we need a new kind of event as well, otherwise the lvl 40 fleet need to be nerfed, its realy hard to take that 40 and the mcx may be worth keeping it but only the mc it really needs to be a little easier, we are tired of having almost unreacheable event unless u coin your way in it... we are all aware that this is a n enterprise therefore u need to make money but i would be nice to se a event or two were u can fairly win a thing or two without coining it
    It is most likely going to be a new event
    Neither one it has been to long since SC and DNX have been offered

    True but they would most likely be tier 5 or highest leveled offered and his question sounds more like the second highest level and the MC hasn't even been released a second time
    SC is tier 4.... It has been released in tier 4 before.

    I want to see Goliath and MC or SC on the 4th tier, but at the same time I did miss out on the Triton due to technical difficulties that raid. Tough decision, but Golis hands down.
    Triton will probably be tier 5, and kixeye's patterns indicate it will be re-offered this event.

    Er
    Goliath, much needed these days for base defense. 
    Since the triton was introduced, there's no need for the goliath. More slots, more opportunities, less repair time. I am working on a 4 trits+1hurricane sollution. Trits for stopping fleets, hurricane for killing spec-base-preppers

    Why missile system? That's a real sucky build if you ask me.

    That would definitely mess up the game balance.


    so, it would make ALOT more people happier

     

    It would make the noobs happy. You really should learn what 'balance' means to a game.

    I would say Goliath but i agree that maybe a goliath a or another version of it maybe just to make it a little newer and maybe better since there have been a ton of new base hitters, time for  a beefed up base defender, either way new or old goliath would be cool

    That would be really cool.  A beefier version called the "Titan" or "Kraken" or something of that effect.  8 armor & 8 weapons with 3 special slots.  Slow as if not slower than the Goliath in order to keep inside bases as a guard hull etc etc.

    Lol i turned my goliath into a fvf with 32 map speed.... it looks sad watching this box fly by (not really fly) it looks like it could tip over at any second :O

    Haha I've seen people do this before.  I imagine you sacrifice alot of defense/dps stacking combat/map speed/turn speed armors etc etc.

    the only thing i sacrifice is one goliath for a arbiter with the navigator mod so the turn speed and map speed is up... but other than that with the "V" armor only upping the speed by 5% out of 7.... you could have it completely full of it and have the combat speed only be 7 lol

    The Missile Cruiser (MC) , Not the Missile Cruiser X (MC-X).

    EDIT: Magic Sarap beat me to it.


    Sarap, what tier would the hull be in? 
    Not sure yet, just wanted to get an early idea. It's not going to be in Tier 1, lol.
    What would be awesome is if in Tier 5 is the dreadnought or dreadnought x and in Tier 4 the Goliath and missile cruiser. Although I want goli lol.
    I change my mind lol. Either MC is T5 or Goli is Tier 4 or the other way around. So everyone can get both.
    One of hem will be tier 4, and tier 5 will be the triton.
