Nope, SeBo II uses around 40% less capacitor then meta4 and is also usually cheaper.

T2 amarr beam/pulse of all variety. fitting cpu and pg is exorbitant with slight damage bonus and higher cap use.

CCP, reduce meta4 drop rate slightly. That drastically reduced PG/CPU/Cap etc... must come at a higher price. Most T2 mods requiring the higher skills -lots of 5's- should come down in PG/CPU/CAP etc... so those with the invested skills have the better fitting. ex) fitting up T2 mega pulse and mega beam apoc eft at 257/254 (EFT so actually more) vs meta4 fitting at 239/237.

what am I doing... CCP has all the spreadsheets. They know how unbalanced this is.

You can't use T2 ammo on meta weapons so that is rather moot. T2 might be more difficult to fit and all, but you get a huge benefit with T2 ammo for some ships.

Meta 4 and Tech II weapons have the same damage mod and fire rate. The Tech II gets marginally greater damage only from the Tech II weapon skill; the majority of the value of Tech II weapons is to use Tech II ammo.

These have a use purely because they're identical to meta 4, and meta 4 is rare enough to be a lot more expensive.


They use more powergrid than meta 4, which can become an issue if you've got a tight frig or cruiser fit going on. They SHOULD have a bit extra range.

it has a slightly less problematic penalty to shield boosting. I would like to see that module be fixed as to not hamper active shield tanking, btw.

Meta 4 Nanofiber Internal Structure
Speed: +8.9%
Agility: -15.8%
Structure penalty: -15%
Price: around 80k ISK

Nanofiber Internal Structure II
Speed: +9.4%
Agility: -15.8%
Structure penatly: -20%
Price: around 450k ISK

T2 isn't clear-cut worse, but a further -5% structure penalty and 6x price for the same agility bonus and just +0.5% speed doesn't seem like a good bargain to me.

I agree, and would definitely put the above example into the special case scenario with the microwarpdrives.

Out of curiosity, seeing as this is a sticky with no blue posts... has CCP mentioned this is something they're planning on amending? Or is this sticky just basically here for "don't buy these T2 modules" purposes?

CCP has already announced that they are planning on doing work on meta 4 modules as a part of tiericide. I don't remember where I saw it but it was probably somewhere in Features and Ideas Discussion.

CCP Fozzie mentioned it a little bit in the Sensor Dampener thread in F&I.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

so why is the T2 range the same as the meta 4?? also unless you are changing it has the same effectiveness???
so whats the point of using the T2 version over the meta 4??? this is the same for many modules aswell any chance of changing them??

any thoughts on making modules role based instead of tiers???

We'd like to address some of these issues but this change is specifically adjusting the balance of the Damp group as a whole and we don't want to complicate it by feature creeping :)

check your eft again. t2 remote reppers have clear advantage and im FAR from the only one that uses them

your list is missing t2 small energy neuts

also your missing small cap booster II

wont talk about micro cap boosters since those have been unseeded from the game

Yeah its odd; the T2 TP seems to have the exact same stats as the meta 4 except it costs more to activate. Any idea if theyll ever fix that? It seems like its something that should BE fixed lol

And, isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, oooh, the sky is the limit.

A lot of meta 5s (Tech II) have the same or higher fitting cost and higher capacitor cost with equal output to the meta 4. That is why they (Target Painter II included) are on the list. We are trying to get CCP to take a look at it.

They probably will soon. Even before this post, CCP Fozzie gave a shout-out to the discrepancy. CCP is aware of this problem.

Actually, the penalty on the meta4 is smaller than that of the t2.

Something else:

If you cannot use the Energized Adaptive Nano Membrane II, there is not point using the Meta 4 variation, as an Adaptive Nano Plating II gives more resists than the meta 4 EANM while only requiring Hull Upgrades IV.

And instead of the T2 you can ofc use the 'Refuge' one, which gives the same resists for a quarter of the price and only needs Hull Upgrades I.

Ah, a dev's alt posts a request to get the community to do his job, to create a list of T2 items to nerf (edit, nerf the meta 4's).
This dovetails nicely with fozzie's comments today.
