    Great show guys

    (read like Worker 7517):

    …especially…Tony…because…he…never…gets…any…recognition…only…Geoff and Lennon…who…are obviously…the…best

    Anyway, I’m happy with the ship progress. It will happen when it happens.

      Just kidding Tony. You all are great! Still my favorite podcast. I actually listen to the live show and the post-prod show. (long commute) Good and thoughtful discussion which I appreciate.

    Good show guys.

    I was not surprised by the status of the Avenger variants, but I am thoroughly confused. CIG’s progress on it since the PBR graphics pass has been, essentially, nil. Now, CIG has stated all of the following:
    1. The ship is in S42
    2. It’s not a multi-crew ship
    3. It is flyable in AC
    4. it’s not scheduled for a major overhaul
    5. it was debuted relatively early in the campaign (second livestream, I believe).
    6. (as of the last RTV, from Ben) it is one of the, if not the, most widely owned ship.

    I can’t figure out why the variants aren’t a priority, especially given the ships that HAVE variants already. I do have three theories:

    Charitably, I’d assume it’s a case where they got the ship’s development done so early (since it’s supposed to feature in the beginning, tutorial missions of S42) that all the requisite developers and artists moved on, so it missed it’s chance for the variants until S42 development is basically done.

    Pessimistically, I’d wonder if they’ve decided the Avenger is completely redundant given the Gladius (comparable dogfighter with very similar if not superior stats) and Cutlass (arguably better Bounty Hunting ship) are are considering abandoning development.

    If I went conspiracy, though, I would wonder if they’re looking at that “most widely owned fighter” statistic and thinking “when we REALLY need a cash infusion, this thing still doesn’t have variants”.

    In general though, I think the ship status post is one of the best community info ideas they’ve had in a while.

    I backed with the Avenger. I was happy with its initial description and back story and most of all its the sexiest ship in the game thus far to my eyes. Its cockpit is a dual stick setup witch is exactly how Im building my simpit. The only thing that will disappoint me is if CIG were to dissolve the ship completely. I do think its awesome they want to bring in 3 other variants. I didn’t know about it and Im stoked.

    As far as Im concerned progress or the lack therof is none of my business. Nor is it anyone elses. They are 3,trais, !!!THREE!!! years into development. Id rather we stop pestering them for any progress updates and let them keep in elbows and arseholes position and get to work. Ill worry in another 3 years.
