Lately, I've been noticing a lot of what I consider to be not only pathetic, but just plain broken.

All forms of ewar, aside from ECM, are simple debuffs to certain aspects of your ship, and can usually be managed in a fight. ECM can not.

I am 50% into the structure of my target and his pal whilst soloing, and he lands his jackass falcon alt. Yay, perma jammed, fights over, I literally can do nothing but watch my ship blow up.

Anyone else see a problem with this? There are plenty of things that Ewar should do aside from break your lock, which is essentially a 20 second and spammable "stun."

Makes Soloing in PvP a lot less fun.

Did you just come to this conclusion.
ECM OP!
Instead of people at ccp playing with mods no one really cares for and ships(haulers) no one really gives two s****t's about, they should put their thinking cap on and figure a way of making ecm of any and every kind alittle lest OP, even better, take it out of the damn fuc**** game.
Love it when you get perma jammed over 80+km, its like, okay okay, let me pull my draws down and let you have a go at me.

LOL You must not have been playing this game to long.. Not a to long time ago they actually took ECM down a notch.. A falcon was very easily able to jam 4 and five targets from 100+ kms.. SO trust me it can be waaayyy worse

Been playing this game long enough, no one is talking how it use to be, and how it use to be and how it is now, are basicly the same thing. ECM still OP.

Right, but in no way does that justify it.

Didn't you get the memo? Solo PvP is dead! Sad

Post with your main, like a BOSS!

I don't see a problem here at all.

If you had been in a drone boat using sentry drones the Falcon would have been:

a) Useless
b) Dead, if he didn't bail out in a timely fashion.

ECM stops vessels that rely on maintaining a lock from combat, but saying ECM can't be managed in a fight is absolutely wrong.

How would the result have been any different if he had brought in an alt in some other ship? Talos would have killed you, Logi would have let him kill you, Curse would have neuted you, etc. So the fact that it's a Falcon is irrelevant.

Flying solo comes at the risk of being outnumbered. You learned this today. Prepare better next time.

That hit the nail straight on the head. There are 2 solution to solve this. Bring your own alt OR bring a friend. The friend is the super duper solution because then you don't even have to micromanage 2 ships. You can keep doing what you ususally do and the other ship has something controling it without any inputs coming from you. It's basicly like hacking except there is nothing illegal about it and it gives you someone to talk to during your roam while you are looking for targts.

Super duper OP I tell you.
