As the title says. If you are cloaked along the path of a missile they will now decloak you.
It makes sense that they do but is this intentional or not?

This is probably CCP's much anticipated afk cloaking nerfBig smile Cerberus finally has a role!

Things are only impossible until they are not.

No idea but that's awesome...not that it should happen much, you'd have to be flying in between the two ships fighting.

Now if only we could fire missiles indiscriminately out into space. Pirate

So close...

Wow, that seems like a good idea.

I dunno, can they fire without any targets? I've honestly never tried them, it was put in my head early on that they were crap.

So close...

FoF missiles aren't indiscriminately at all. They prefer going after the worst possible target they can find.

Now if you could just carpet bomb space you would be in business.

Well missiles always produced a physical object in space. It would stand to reason that the object could be permitted to decloak via proximity like all other objects. I don't see a problem as there is practically a infinite amount of space to avoid the firing solution between two groups.

Now that you say that I seem to remember this happening to me once. Me and another pilot were amazed, but when we tried to reproduce the result, we failed many times. At least then, you had to be very accurate or lucky with shot and ship placement.

I've always thought that they should add into the game that if you fire your weapons and some unlucky sap (or complete idiot depending on circumstances) flies into the path, than they should be damaged.

would it stop the shots from hitting the original target?

If yes then I could see it being used via a battleship shield type of deal for a titan being attacked. Example would be fly your remaining BSs into the line of fire to take the kicking while the titan escapes. Or something like that Arrow

sorry to burst your bubble, but missiles have always been able to decloak you. Nothing other than graphics was changed about missiles in Inferno

There Is A 90% Chance All Of What You Just Read Is Wrong, Inaccurate Or Just Me Being Controversial In Some Way. Or By Some Chance It's Completely Right In Every Way... At Least To Me :3
