THE GLADIUS

Recommended Posts

So tonight I pulled the trigger on a Gladius!

 

Boy am I glad i did that, I've only had the Aurora package since April 2014!

 

The Aurora was a nice ship for someone just looking to initially get into Star Citizen, but now that I have flown the Gladius 

I am very happy with melting down my Aurora package for $45.00 store credit and paying $60.00 for the Gladius. 

BEST CHOICE IVE MADE FOR MYSELF IN SC.

 

So tonight I had to re-install the SC launcher and the patches and what not so I patiently waited at my computer for about 2 hours (thank god they switched their CDN for these downloads it went 10x faster this go around).

 

And it finally happened I spawned in my hanger and there she was in all her beauty. My initial thought was holy crap this thing is sweet! BUT then I jumped in and took it out for a spin around the Verse' I was finally able to control my space ship! 

You see with the Aurora I wasn't ever able to control it, or at least in my experience i wasn't able to.

In the Gladius I was able to maneuver around asteroids and control my speed and where I was going without any problem! 

 

That alone made me so happy! i finally felt what it was like to actually kinda know how to fly!

 

EDIT NOTE HERE IN CASE MY WIFE READS THIS @loopup2u MADE ME DO IT

 

In the Aurora I was never able to really control what i was doing or who I was aiming at (although decoy let me kill him once ;).

In the Gladius I was shooting people out of the sky!!

 

So I just wanted to share my excitement and let you know my experience with switching from the basic entry ship to that of a dedicated fighter!

 

If you are on the fence about purchasing a Gladius I would recommend quickly hoping off the fence and purchasing one!  

 

I have a crappy screenshot for some reason it lost alot of quality in the print screen process, so if anyone knows any other way to get High Res screenshots please please please let me know! :P

Hopefully I can fly my sub gladius with you soon! It'll be my first time out with it, its a sub for my vanguard, and it's the only flyable ship I haven't been in.

I love the Gladius. It's very pretty and it flies wonderfully, my only issue is the guns feel shrimpy compared to the Super Hornet's obscene loadout I'm used to.

 

They need to make a model like the constellation so I can have one on my desk.

@[member='BookD20'] I like forward to that!

@[member='Kraven213'] yea it is a bit shrimpy but man with the speed and maneuverability I think that makes up the difference! :P

Either way it achieved what I was after, it made me want to play that much more :P
