Attachment 2885Veteran: All around bonus in EvE as well as extra class coins at the end of battle.
There are now 20 new class skills in game. This gives people many more things to save tokens for and drastically changes traditional EvE tactics. Please refer to this thread
for full info about the new skills.
Below is a brief preview of the new skills for each class.
Attachment 2886Stim Pack - Removes all negative status effects from a target and grants a small amount of “immunity” to that target for most negative status effects (does not resist explosives or booby trap). Also restores a small amount of health. Use of this skill will wake up the target if they are sleeping. Can only be used on a member of your own empire. “Immunity” effect is doubled when used on yourself. Battle Points received upon use: 110
Attachment 2883Payback - As the same player attacks you, you will deal more counter-attack damage (on average) to them with each successive attack they make on you. This effect reaches a maximum amount of extra counter-attack damage after 5 attacks by that player. The resistance lasts for the entire battle and does not reset on heal or by use of Stim Pack. Translation: if the same player keeps hitting you, you will do an increasing amount of counter-attack damage to them (up to a maximum).
Attachment 2887Ricochet - On any critical hit you score, there is a chance that you will hit a second target for a percentage of the damage you scored on the original target. Translation: it’s like splash damage for snipers.
Attachment 2888Booby Trap - Place a booby trap on target. The booby trap will detonate if the target uses a heal pack or if a Stim Pack is used on them, damaging both the player and their building. Stim Pack “immunity” will not resist the application of booby trap. There is no attack component to the application of a booby trap. Use of this skill will wake up the target if they are sleeping. Can be applied to a target that is already dead. Battle Points received upon use: 110
