Were you ever scrambled or affected by ewar and tried desperately to find the pilot(s) providing you with that much virtual ewar love so that you can return the favour with deadly missiles, drones or gunfire? Did you ever fail to spread your love due to icons being very small in the overview?

Then rejoice and read this devblog by CCP karkur and learn more about the first version of the new effects bar, released in the upcoming Escalation!

My best yet! 2nd 3rd Non Dev. I'm so proud.

Bloody ninjas

I was actually thinking this should be a feature only yesterday. We should have web/scram/etc icons on the target bar or something.

Not entirely sold on the potentially clunky right click interface, but it looks great so far.

Thanks karkur.

Now we need to get on balancing EWAR (please say eaf's are being considered as anti supercap ewar ships.

This looks like a really solid implementation of situational awareness that we are currently lacking. Well done!

This is awesome, but where can I see the debuffs on the targets?

EWAR in fleet fights have historically been pretty insignificant, due to the scale of things. With small gangs, it's easy to coordinate ECM/tracking disruption etc, but in fleet fights it's near impossible.

Being able to see what debuffs a locked target has would be a HUGE buff to ewar in fleetfights, and in a smaller sense in small gangs as well. It'd also let a well coordinated gang outperform a less coordinated gang, by allowing people to spread points, ECM, tracking disruption and sensor dampening among the hostiles.

Can we PLEASE get debuff displays on targets soon? ;)

I'd really like to see warp scrambling and warp disrupting seperated out into different icons - the 2 effects are very different nowadays. Other than that, cool for a first iteration.

That's a pretty sweet new feature.

A really awesome tweak would be if you could ctrl-click on the names that appear when you right click the icon to target the hostile. Anything that reduces the number of nested menus required in combat would be really good.

Also this:

Very nice, thank you.

Oh. When I have modules active on a targeted hostile, I can click on the icon to switch it off. Could you add that feature to the effects bar, too? Lol

Pictures ftw. Excellent changes!

P.S. Can I have a civilian gatling pulse laser that one-shots titans?

This is awesome!!! Only thing that would be cool to add, if only one person is say webbing you, could you add the ability to just ctrl + click to lock target? That would be very sweet indeed.

Great works guys and gals....keep it up!

Funny how a noob ship destroyed a titan :))

Why not add an e-war column to the overview?
