Good riddance to a ******** tactic. It did make me miss the times when dictors were much squishier and easily blapped by my ol' arty loki.

Did you consider "interdiction sphere launcher cannot be activated within arbitrary distance of stations"?

I'd be interested to know why an entirely new mechanic was chosen over something with precedence.

Isn't it obvious? His main is Capqu. ;) How else do you explain that he always knew when to undock and screw with you?



CCP should add more NPC 0.0 space to open it up and liven things up: the Stepping Stones project.

Predictions on whether this will work as 'well' as drones returning to a player's drone bay when he disconnects?

I don't understand something: in 2011 CCP set an agression timer for launching an interdiction probe. When did they change that back ??

https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=38950

Edit: Patched back in 2013/2014 as it seems. Weird. May we expect to have the timer back in 2016 ? Lol

Why not just give the dictor pilot an aggression timer if their bubble includes a station/stargate/pos module/other anchorable or NPC stationary?

I like that idea, it would make it easier to defend a station from attackers. Just drop all of your supers into the no bubbles allowed zone around the station and enjoy your near invulnerability because nobody can lock them down.

This is probably the best solution that could be had for the current problem. It solves the problem of untouchable dictors annoying cap fleets in NPC null (and as someone who has done it, I will agree that it was an abusive mechanic, even if there were some solutions) without breaking any other interactions with light dictor gameplay. If your fleet controls the station grid, your dictor can still keep it locked down. Dictors in roaming actions can still bubble and crash (and this isn't the same kind of problem because they can still be caught on the other side of the gate).

If you're asking why Light Interdictors can do all these cool things and HICs can't, you should be pushing to make HICs less awful instead of trying to crush dictors down to their level.

Seriously I bought a pair of Broadswords as soon as GSF announced 100% reimbursement bonuses and I still own both of the damn things because there is almost never a time when I have a legitimate reason to use them instead of just hopping into a Sabre.
