NEW FREELANCERS !! Are you going to get one ?

Recommended Posts

The Freelancer line-up

Despite its looks, I want to get the Freelancer DUR for exploring. But, I already own a 300P for that.
And I wonder if the Freelancer DUR will be able to find,fly-through, and map new jump points! Thats the deal breaker for me and why I went with the 300P as it was what it was designed to do.

I was thinking of getting the limited MIS version. But the only reason I wanted to get it was because it was limited, so I might not do that (I slept pretty hard on that one). :lol:

In the end, if I don't end up getting the DUR version (if I find out it can't find and map jump points), I'll get the standard version for general use like cargo hauling and exploring.

So whats your take on the Freelancers?

I was hoping to like the new variants, but man. There's something about that broken neck on it that just puts me off. The interior is too tiny for me to really feel like it's a comfortable ship as well. Stats though, lookn' better and capable in multiple areas, but I'm going to pass on it.

I myself do not have a ship yet in SC. I was planning on the cutlass but ever since I saw the Freelancer MIS I have fallen in love with it. It fills the role that I want to play. The MIS is a lot of firepower In a small package with the missile loading system I feel that the MIS will be perfect for protecting large convoys from larger threats because of the immense firepower in this small package. So with that firepower ill be able to join in on a large convoy as an escort ship which is what I want to do in the PU.

So the short answer is yes I will be getting a Freelancer MIS.

Talk to y'all later

@NewbHunter; That sounds awesome. Go for it if you can. That MIS would likely make short work of any enemy swarm and help even out the odds in any outnumbered situations.

@Phineas_and_F3rb: Thanks, yeah I looked at the brochure. It doesn't mention anything about jump point mapping but I also think it will do that. But now I'm beginning to be hugely indecisive. i don't know if I can let go of the 315p explorer in favour of the DUR. Yet theres no point in keeping both. Decisions decisions.

@ aageon: Other ships. I'm curious what CIG will concoct with Connie variants. If there will also be a military variant. If so, I'm thinking a C&C Connie with a sensor suite, holo globe, and maybe additional gun turrets. Minus the snub fighter to make way for sensors,additional crew quarters, bigger shield and power generators. Kind of like a mini corvette.

Though I highly doubt any future ships for sale will have LTI.

obviously most everyone has been in their hangars since DFM release and the recent updates.... i just was able to get into the hangar yesterday, and i've been checking everything out in there.... including TNGS ships. Although a little disappointed i couldnt walk through them...

now when i came upon my freelance (standard variant) i noticed a major difference in the skin on it, not only did it look more like an old WW2 bomber skin, atleast thats the best way i could describe the way it looked to me. When i go into the ship, it looks like the took another pass at it, and redid the interior slightly, am i the only one to notice this, or am i just loosing my mind (might still be loosing my mind eitheway, but still :P )

as far as what i might want later, is probably the Dur, or the mis, variants.

Picked up the MIS version, since it was a limited sale.
Can't wait to see it unleash all those missiles at somebody... :)

Just can't decide if I should upgrade my current Lancer to the MAX or DUR.
I have a 315p for exploration, but a DUR, might be better because of the room the bring back goods.
Love the MAX for it's cargo hauling... Guess I will wait to see what the do with the Connie variants...
Ahhh.... who am I kidding.... I am sure I will get one of each at some point... ;)

I went with the max, it looked to have the greatest difference in the main hull, and with the upgrade systems in place I'm thinking I can re-fit it to be a long range exploration ship (With more hauling and four engines) or a better missile boat if needed (I loose the wingtip missiles, but if I can have four of those top mounted launches, aww baby :) )

But as it stands, I'm planning on cargo runs until I can afford my Retaliator :) That's my goal

I got the MAX as well.. I looks big enough to hold a Merlin... lol For those of you who might want a MIS later... you can buy the upgrade and not apply it. Its Giftable and you can melt it as well.

I'm going to pick up the Freelancer MIS tonight to support our convoys during trade runs and if needed added firepower for our fleet during large engagements...As long as I have fighter escorts from you hornet and avenger pilots =)

I broke down and upgraded mine to a DUR, and I could not make up my mind so I bought the MIS version as well. Oh well I guess we can't have enough Freelancers :)

Yes, got the DUR because that jump engine and extra fuel suits my play style, but the MIS is reeealy sexy! Don't think it's worth it though.

Quick question: If I buy the MIS upgrade will I be able to buy a stock Freelancer in-game (after launch) and apply it then, anyone?

I have had a freelancer ever since i pledged for the game, and just upgraded to a max. Can't wait to haul anything worth good credits across the stars "legal or illegal"

And to all you fighters out there, i would happy to hire a wingman or two on thoes high risk major profit runs. Im all about running low profile, but having a few attack dogs when someone asks questions is never bad :twisted:

Im totally open to nagotiating split profits aswell, something like 20/80 + free meals and a bunk on my ship on the longer runs.

I good idea would be to get someone like me in a Freelancer MIS to come with you

I'm still not sure wich one I'll get...with the connie variants (specially that lux variant), I might get the MIS freelancer for the fire power and keep the connie as a lux ship. But before I saw the connie pictures i was leaning for the DUR, for the exploration! Can't make up my mind now, I'll probably go for both the DUR and MIS!
