Since citadel patch you can not refitt on a mobile depot if you are in bastion mode, is this intentional or is how it should be ? Of course i know about the change when you have a weapon timer you can not refitt, but should this affect the use of a mobile depot when you enter bastion mode Question

Bastion mode give's you a weapon timer by default so I guess it's intendid.

I am wondering if this is intended as well as it is messing up my c5 farming tactic...

I would not believe this is on purpose, i believe they forgot to look into this more detailed because it is giving a hard time for all guys who was going with marauders in wormholes or guys going into missions and allways had the ability to refitt the ship to what is needed.

Intended. Check the patch notes. It's the last line under "Modules:" for Citadel 1.0. You can no longer refit under a weapons timer, including the one Bastion modules give you.

"Tomahawks?"

"Trouble is, those things cost like a million and a half each."

"----, you pay me half that and I'll hump in some c4 and blow the ---- out of it my own damn self."

I think it's they inclued that for/with the capitals modifications... To prevent them to swap fit when they get primary, with was the normal tactic.

Refitting in space will no longer be possible with a weapons timer.
is what is in the patch notes nothing about mobile depot, this is what you imply to be as the way how it works now but i think still this is not intended!

Would be nice if we can get a DEV tellling us more about Smile

From the patch notes:

"Refitting in space will no longer be possible with a weapons timer."

It is irrelevant what you use or how you are attempting to do it. It is no longer possible to refit in space with a weapons timer. It is intended as the patch notes state. It would not be in the patch notes if it was not intended.

.....bastion has always given you a weapons timer... CCP flat out said no refitting with weapons timer. All other PVE ships can refit off a depot no problem. just not a marauder in bastion.

There are other means to refitting in space than the depot, but the fact that the patch notes makes no specific indicator of which forms means the line is being inclusive of all forms of refitting. You just don't agree with it. I've been flying Marauders since well before Rubicon myself and, yes, it sucks you have to be a bit more careful about going into Bastion if you intend to refit mid-mission.

You're not use to the notion that refitting and using a Bastion module would have limits nor does it sound like a great change to you either. That''s understandable, but to be perfectly honest and blunt, get over it and move on. Understand that there are other scenarios at work here that this change is more intended for even though it means Marauder pilots running L4's and such might have to adjust how they do things to compensate. This is but a rather typical occurrence in game design, is it not? Adapting is not quite as difficult as many have grown accustom to claiming.

If its intended then its just destroying the gameplay from lots and lots of guys using marauders and need to refitt like thoose who need to refitt in bastion while in a c5 sleeper site... I personally have no problem with this because i do not fly marauders but it looks to me again like something the game designers changed without telling something detailed before a patch is up...
