Hey everyone, we have a few small changes to announce for the Summer release. Both are follow up changes to help improve the balance around warp speed upgrades.

  • We're going to change warp speed rigs to make them stacking penalized with each other.
  • We're increasing the set bonus provided by Ascendancy Omegas to 70% for the HG and 35% for the LG. This makes them a little bit better than the WS-618s.

Let us know what you think!

After mulling this around for a bit, the first isn't a terribly bad idea since really only the third rig takes a hit. I can fully endorse the second - so overall I approve. Is there any outside possibility of introducing a lot-slot warp speed module that would help offset the abysmal speed of battleships? One that would perhaps extend +warp speed and -warp speed capacitor use? Something that could be utilized as a travel fit would be a welcome addition for missions, etc.

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

second

E: third

E2: so will the highest possible warp speed on say an interceptor or a freighter be going up or down?

I don't use warp speed boosting stuff enough to notice. Seems reasonable though.

Couldn't care less. Does anybody actually use these implants?

Good call changing the Ascendancy set a bit.

How about some modules to decrease warp speed? There are use cases...

As long as we're on the subject, does anyone have specs on the overall bonus of using the ascendancy sets?

It's great if you fly freighters frequently. The set cuts travel time by a very noticable amount.

This. Give them a hull penalty like Nanofibers, or armor penalty, but either way give us the ability to travel fit ships. I don't mind if they're more vulnerable, I just feel like planning and preparing for a long series of jumps should give some benefit, and it shouldn't cost multiple sets of rigs to do so.

I do dislike that this kills my interceptor speed warping Sigil, though. I swear you all decide to change things after I start using them.
