Welp. I guess it solves the dilemma I won't be around after the 16th. I was hoping to wait till after holidays but I had to buy it now instead.

What sold you on the MIS over the DUR or MAX ?

For me the DUR won out with the exploration upgrades. The MIS was tempting just because.... well Missiles, lots and lots and lots of missiles. The MAX I think is only an option if your main focus is going to be trade and you will have friends to call upon for escort, as you lose weapons and shield capacity with it over the others.

Agreed on all those points. the MIS looks great on paper but it's also a 3 slot craft which probably means you'll need at least one other person to operate the reload station for missiles so going solo will be a no go. Long range sensors on the DUR will probably be pretty big for exploration.

I have to say the stuff they've said about different stations in these multilayer ships sounds amazing. You can assign different weapons to each seat, give shields and power to another, radar and target acquisition.I really look forward to watching this scale up all the way up to the huge cap ships.

And the Freelancer is one of the first ships that we'll see this on. With the 2 seats up front and then the Turret at the back.

I'm not sure how I entirely understand how the 3rd player is going to work in the Freelancer compared to the other variants.

I can't wait to see how it's all going to work together. Ships like the IDRIS or the Caterpillar will be heavily guarded at all times I think. Losing one of those to a bunch of people boarding will suck bad haha.

Yes, I think thats what will take this game to the next level, it all working together. The small fighters and large bombers swarming about. While being on a capital ship as an engineer getting that little bit more power to the warp engine or captain shouting orders and firing massive weapons at one another, the boarding and fighting through the decks of these huge vessels. And it all happening at the same time.

I just got the DUR. Why do I see myself spending more money in this game? It's so damn addicting!
