I would have to say I have a totally different outlook on the changes to these ships. My first look at them in their new form was when I saw the impossible. Well apparently the impossible anywhere but in EVE. I watched an interceptor gang take on a Battle cruiser fleet 3 times its size and not only win but totally annialated the battle cruiser fleet. Contrary to what everyone in here seems to believe a spider that won’t get caught in their own web, will most defiantly get caught in another spider’s web if it ventures there.

Furthermore I would really like to know how you justify nullifying the interdictor, who by definition is meant to catch others, not evade others traps themselves, and yet NOT nullify the blockade runners whose description clearly states that its designed roll is to get through such things?

Because to bubble someone you have to bubble yourself, which can be suicide. So the interdictor would have a LOT more survivability if you weren't stuck in your own bubble, because you could drop a bubble on a fleet and get the **** off grid before you got blapped.

....the combination of raw speed and nullifaction on the ceptors, while amazing, is a bit over the top.
