In years past, the mass of ships in a fleet was a critical factor, often determining the outcome of a battle.  The advent of combat-class capital ships have provided some challenges to this common “numbers game”, where the tide of a battle (and the morale of the enemy fleet) can shift with the sudden appearance of a single cynosaural field beacon.  No longer do simple numbers determine the outcome of engagements with the enemy; BRUTE FIREPOWER on target, experience, coordination, and survivability play an ever-increasing role.  Combat-class capital ships, in the hands of skilled pilots, are delivering this brute firepower in some of the battles that shape the politics, sovereignty and economy in New Eden.  Combat-class capital ships continue to be a “must have” for those that wish to stay on top of the food chain, and enforce their will on others.

Carrier Extravaganza – Why waste your isk on overpriced ships?
ICSC Price changes and T2 shop opening


Several months ago ICSC took the lead and “lowered the bar” on Dreadnought pricing, a new price scheme which shook the dreadnought market.  Even though demand for our products have steadily increased, we have held firm on our dreadnought pricing strategy.  Now that the initial rush of purchasing the “latest ships in New Eden" has quieted down, ICSC no longer needs to avoid Carrier re-sellers.  To that end, ICSC has lowered the bar one more time, and now have the same pricing strategy for our carrier class ships.  These low prices will have no effect on our solid delivery schedule or our focus on customer satisfaction and services. 

We will continue to provide reliable, dependable service, customer satisfaction and a capital ship on time, as ICSC has become known for.  The carrier prices were changed over a week ago in our product catalogue (www.eve-icsc.com), but this is the first opportunity we have had to bring it to your attention.

ICSC has also procured new module blueprints to be able to supply carrier pilots with all the capital class modules currently released.  Most of these we have in stock in our warehouse, ready for pickup.  Reduced pricing will be given as usual if modules are ordered together with a combat-class capital ship.

As a neutral group, ICSC continuously strives to provide the best service and lead times to all interested customers.  Additional investments in capital ship and component blueprints have reduced most carrier and some dreadnought queues across the board.  Our 200th capital ship is just about to roll out of the factory, with a very rare bottle of “sparkling Quafe” set aside, ready to christen this milestone.  200 capital ships built and delivered in 9 months…  over 6.5 years of factory time, just for the hulls themselves.  Over 19 years of factory time, in the last 9 months, if you include the components needed to assemble these ships.

Through integrity, fair prices and a focus on customer service, we are slowly achieving our goal of bringing more and larger capital ships to all pod pilots and corporations in New Eden.  If you intend to purchase a capital ship from ICSC, please make sure to book your future carrier or dreadnought well in advance of your desired delivery date.  The cost to reserve the slot is minimal, yet we see many ICSC customers come to us too late; they have the required skills, but they end up waiting for the required hull.   Moral of the story: Figure out when you need it, and call us early!

ICSC is also proud to announce that we can also supply a limited range of Tech II products. With the combined efforts of our ICSC member corps we are able to offer a limited range of ships, modules and advanced ammo – Astarte, Nighthawk, Taranis and Nemesis are some of the T2 ships ICSC offers; check the Tech II product catalogue for details.  You may contact any ICSC sales representative to book your order, either via eve-mail of by visiting our FTL channel: ICSC.
