Here's the Heavy Interdictor changes! The main thrust of the rebalance is to give all of the hictors a more robust secondary combat role. We'd like taking an occasional hictor along with a roaming fleet to feel fine even if you don't expect to run into a supercap.

Firstly, we are enabling overheat for Warp Disruption Field Generators with an overheat bonus that reduced cycle time by 1/3. This allows a hictor pilot to strategically reduce the cycle time of his bubble so that he can quickly disable it and receive reps if he gets primaried.

We're also making one significant addition to the focused point script:

When a Rorqual, Dreadnaught, Carrier, Supercarrier or Titan is pointed by a focused point they will not be able to jump through gates.

This is to counter the power of brawling with your caps on lowsec gates, and if things go bad jumping through and cynoing out since nobody can bubble the other side.

Make the focus point stop all ships from going through a stargate, will encourage people to bring hics and stop the stargate games.

Maybe also prevent docking?

Yay! A viable secondary combat role is a good thing.

Also: stop tiptoeing around a T3 rebalancing!!11 ;-)

Yet another hack because of ****** mechanics changes. Not cool, not cool.

Agreed. Why not make the HIC prevent stargate jumps for ALL ships, not just Capitals?

No, it's not.
It would just make gate camps/station camps more powerful.
This is not good gameplay, because ppl have to undock/jump blindly and are then faced with inevitable death.
In the short run, lazy campers will cheer, in the long run, people will avoid jumping and undocking - which is a bad thing.

no cost reduction? no dropping the no-RR thing?

what I think is this sucks. I don't think taking a heavy interdictor along on a roam is going to do anything even if supercaps show up. I guess the supercaps will take a few seconds to kill it.

so you can blob the smaller groups on the gates with shitload of hics and utterly promote the blob in lowsec?

I like the changes in phobos since hopefully its gonna make people learn how to travel by gates

Reading is hard, it's right in the OP.
Caps have jumpdrives, subcaps not.

It is extremely surprising to see the damage on Hictors unchanged for most part.

1- They need drones. ALL OF THEM. (Even the caldari, yes yes)

2- They need more DPS. Nothing groundbreaking, but for instance the onyx is still limited to kinetic AND has crappy damage bonuses.

Currently a Hictor is just good at bubbling and... doing nothing else. Its not really fun gameplay:/ At least if frigates had to think twice before dumbly orbiting a hictor at 500, that'd be awesome Big smile

Giving Hictors a secondary role is a perfect balance to the lifting of the DD ban in LS. Thank you :)
