Is "Blighted" really the name you're going to use? Will we see "Cursed" and "Holy" and "Undead" weapons in the future?

My reply may be a bit snarky, but I have a very real concern here. For the love of god, hire someone who can come up with Sci-Fi names. Or make your naming person stop playing WoW.

I dont see any wrong with the current naming it looks easy going, perhaps a bit too casual for the hardcore veterans Big smile
If you want to get some inspiration could check for gun & upgrade names in borderlands games for naming ideas Smile

New weapons makes me feel curious anyways Big smile

What Kind of bonuses they provide ? +30 alpha ? Rof ? Omni dmg ?


We want you to try them out on Singularity as this is for feedback from the test server. If we were to write the numbers down, it would turn into just a number-crunching feedback post instead of people actually trying them out in game.


I'll try that tonight :)

I hope they doesn't boost alpha more. Also where are capital sized lool ? I expected kamikaze's dreadnoughts camps on gate with hull buffer waiting @ 200km incoming cap fleets on bottlenecks regional's jumps

Ok, very underwhelming stats for most uses I can come up with, but you already know that.

However, one thing I think needs to be discussed is the fact that contrary to MWDs the penalty applies still when the module is offline.

If it wasn't there would be some use in fleets with a nestor, where you can just offline the guns when shot at, and get reps ... (elite vg incursions etc).

Agree.

To be honest the most fitting term is "unstable" (stability obviously being provided by diverting all power from resists to weapon containment fields) but we have those neuts already but it's far and away the best term.

Failing that, overcharged/incandescent...

But seriously....call them unstable and have done with it. Please. Just fix the neuts at their tiericide. Or leave them, don't mind.

Being October.. With Halloween around the corner.. lol They deff need a different name. I do like the unstable... maybe Cataclysmic or Experimental weapons platforms.. Since the metacide slowly occurring prolly can get away with Experimental.. but please.. No Blighted... Or are we becoming a different MMO... Just let me know when I can start summoning Pet Rifters and Fedo's to follow my ship around.

Talking around following ships around *ADD moment* I think Fighters should be seen in warp with your ship if they are assigned!

CCP as most people are saying naming needs some work's just not "spacey" enough, how about naming them "Catalysed" weapons rather than Blighted

I agree, blighted sounds horribly like WoW, Diablo or whatever fantasy theme.

I'll throw in "Resistance flux " as it matches the other "flux" items that reduce something to improve something else.

Do these drop total resists or just base resists to 0%?

Given how it was worded in the original post, I'm going to say it sounds very strongly like your resistances are fixed at 0% and cannot be increased.
