HP 9: Always Have More Guns

Recorded August 26th, 2014

Guest Expert: CCP Fozzie, spaceship developer extraordinaire.

Fozzie takes us to task for our discouragement of mixed gun classes on a ship fit.

Question for the Panel

What feature of Hyperion are you most excited about?

Lockefox: New BPO API endpoints
Phyridean: Wormhole changes (you can direct complaints about Phy's views on Wormholes to any of the correspondence links below)
Ashterothi: Burner missions! (Apparently, CCP Delegate Zero and CCP Lebowski came up with some innovative strategies for dealing with these that CCP Fozzie didn't expect.)
CCP Fozzie: Shareable overviews

"A good balance change is one that...opens up decision space" -CCP Fozzie
