Thanks for nerfing the counter to kitey fleets.

Maybe you guys can now balance the ******* orthrus and garmur?

Still sad this does not stop people jumping gates like to does to caps.

So now they will have almost the same range as Lachesis, while they won't be able to receive reps while scraming. They won't be used in small gangs because orthrus will do it better with 20km overheated scram and 60km point range while moving 2,5km/s. The only reason why someone would use them after that nerf is to prevent caps from taking the gates. Then why not removing them from the game at all? After the change, there will be other ships that can do the job done better then HICs.

No one I know is asking for this. Why?

Cancer Garmurs and Orthrus already own the spacelanes

I like how the people complaining about this pretty much have as much knowledge about small gang as a Malian Camel breeder about sailing.

Hi m8s,

In March, we're releasing a number of balance tweaks and we would love your feedback.

WARP DISRUPTION FIELD GENERATORS
The current state of Scripted Warp Disruption Field Generators is a little too oppressive, especially to the small gang PvP scene. We'd like to open up propulsion module options. As such, we're going to make some changes.

Changes:
  • Remove the Warp Scrambling effect from the Focused Warp Disruption Script
  • Introduce a new Focused Warp Scrambling Script with a -20% range bonus

The new Focused Warp Scrambling Script will have the following ranges (with max skills):
  • T1: 16km
  • Meta: 18km
  • T2: 20km
  • Faction: 21km

The blueprint for the Focused Warp Scrambling Script will be available at all the same place & price as the Focused Warp Disruption Script blueprint is available.

Good. One year ago when the HIC point range buff was proposed I suggested making it 20km otherwise it would be oppressive; a year on your nerfing the range to 20km because it is too oppressive. Better late than never though I guess.

So you are making a game-wide huge nerf for one whiny caster and CSM rep?

How terrible are you people.



This is the same My Hyde that uses his CSM meeting time to talk **** on alliances and other people.

He's quitting Eve in 6 months anyway, taking the bar and becoming a lawyer... why should we bother listening to someone like this?

I would really like CCP Larrkin to explain that.

40k scram on a HIC was the epitome of balancing i don't see why you would change that ? Now each time i see a kiter in intel channel i have to dock up and smacktalk, and eventually get reported for innapropriate language.

Thanks CCP !

Seems like any Proteus will be better now for Pointing stuff what is not a Capital.

I would like to extend the rule for the not jump/dock if you are at it.

I suggest a highslot module that changes the effect in the regard like;

Modul Anti Capital: Captials can't jump or dock when hic pointed
Modul Anti Battleship: Battleship can't jump or dock when hic pointed
Modul Anti BattleCruiser: BattleCruiser can't jump or dock when hic pointed
Modul Anti Cruiser: Cruiser can't jump or dock when hic pointed
Modul Anti Destroyer: Destroyer can't jump or dock when hic pointed
Modul Anti Frigs: Frigs can't jump or dock when hic pointed

Only one module allowed on a ship.

This will give people a oppertunity to force a fight on a gate or Station.

Leave the industrial line out or you will see a lot of JF dying in lowsec :)

The Idea might need some good tweaks like reducing range or lock time for a certain type especially I can see Campers try to abuse this to hell but with this more things will explode what ccp always wants.

Either this or give them at least a reduced amount of repair like 70% percent instead of 100%, because as already stated this makes HIC in normal Fleets just a bad tanked Proteus that can't be repped.

People kite because they don't want to get blobbed to oblivion. It allows them to disengage when the enemy throws a couple of caps after a handful of subcaps.


People kite because they are risk averse, not because they fear the blob.

Thanks for making the point, there is no reason to fly a HIC anymore when you can fly a lachesis and receive reps

This is the dumbest idea i have seen from CCP for game balanicng since FozzieSov!

After the focused point got the scram ability HICs were finally useful in the game. To nerv them again and make hics virtually useless just because some highsec entitys use them for cheesy mechanics, you could just disallow the Hic Warp Disruptor module in highsec, like bomb launchers, etc. instead of changing that whole module. Why dont u just remove highsec totally from the game oO
