I’m not one for any garage ship that may get destroyed personally, I don’t want to lose them so I don’t want to buy one.
That being said, I think it would be really cool if captured garage ships could be restored to their original value by the corer, no NPC core unless they add one but whoever captures it gets to repair it and use it themselves.
Either way the above turns out, SVs are notoriously weak right now, I would be interested to see SVs buffed a liiiiitttle bit, shields, mounted weapon health, something because they’re useless against HVs and bases right now. If you find an unlucky CV (cough Speed cough) you can take them down with an SV if you’re a da** good SV pilot and you have luck on your side, but that’s about all they can be used for.
The garage SV event would be nice, but the reason we have no pvp garage SVs is it’s so hard that anyone who can do it doesn’t want to risk the enemy gaining anything off their design. So there’s no way to get garage SV designs until we wait for designers to become more confident / competent and to actually design and upload them.
That being said, I submitted a garage ship to JU on 1/27/2020 and it was approved but still isn’t in the garage yet (we do dates differently in US) (I understand JU needs a break, I need one every now and then too) so there may be more garage SVs done that just haven’t made it up onto the market yet.
My point is, I would be interested to see SVs buffed and garage SVs would be cool but someone has to build them.
