The ships can be insured so you still have a ship when u come back from death but the equipment you will be putting on the ship will likely be the deciding factor.
The ships are designed to be balanced as well so your hornet may squash a 300i but an avenger gets on your tail and rips u a new ass hole. Show up in a connie feeling like a god only to see 4 aurora legionnaires firing missles on you or worse a gladiator putting a torpedo into you. This is not a bigger = better game, this is the bigger they are the harder they fall game.
Amendment. You've been told that the game will be this way. You haven't actually seen it function.
Please tell me one AAA game that delivered on every bullet point promised in the pre-pre-alpha/conceptual stage at launch.
None that you had to pay for at any rate. And that's the major difference.
