Hey everyone! As CCP Seagull mentioned in her coming in Oceanus dev blog, we're following up with Interceptors and Interdictors this release to apply some more polish.

These Interdictor changes are fairly minor as we consider the balance of this class fairly healthy. They are mainly aimed at helping the Eris, Heretic and Flycatcher compete more strongly against the Sabre for applications where combat ability matters.

One important module tweak that applies significantly to these ships (we'll be discussing it in more detail in an upcoming module balance blog) is that in Oceanus Light Missile Launchers will have their Rate of Fire decreased by ~6%.

Eris:
Replace the +5% Small Hybrid damage bonus with +5% Small Hybrid RoF
-50000 Mass

Heretic:
Replace the +5% Missile damage bonus with +5% Rocket and Light Missile launcher RoF
-5000 Mass
-0.1 Inertia

Flycatcher:
+1 Launcher
+10 CPU
+3 PWG

Seems Like the eris might become a bit more useful now compared to the sabre.

First they came from my rapid lights
And I did nothing
Then they came from my LML's
And there was no one left to protect me

ps: Any chance to add a 2nd low on the flycatcher?

First they came for the Tracking Enhacers, and I did not speak out—
Because I didn't have tracking enhacers fitted

Then they came for the Tier 3 Battlecrusiers, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Tier 3 Pilot

Then they came for the Skirmish Boosts, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Linked Pilot

Then they came for my Light Missiles
-and there was no one left to speak for me

I'll have to EFT it to see how much difference the fitting changes make, but looks promising.

CCP should add more NPC 0.0 space to open it up and liven things up: the Stepping Stones project.

Flycatcher might be a bit too strong with these changes, even despite the 6% ROF nerf. (Although the Flycatcher is limited to Kinetic, 10.5 Effective Launchers is quite a lot.)

Eris changes good, I think the Eris suffers a lot from having 2 mid slots, but a good start.

Heretic change good to compensate for the LML nerf. (It will be about the same place in terms of power).

Seems reasonable. I wish the flycatcher could get a 8/4/2 slot layout, but at least now it's going to be actually viable as an alternative to the heretic and has the role of ~siqq~ alpha.

Don't see why you're nerfing missiles again tho...

can you refund my SP in light missiles and dump it directly into drones please I want to remain competitive in Drones Online and trade my talwars in for Algoses

also can you apply the 6% decrease to RLMLs so I can have a longer uptime before I'm useless during reloads tia in advance

fozzie why do you and Rise have a compulsion to implement (needed) nerfs to overpowered ships by both hurting the ship and the weapon system it uses? HMLs had to die so that everyone and their aunt would stop flying Drakes, when does the madness end?


why do you hate caldari?
why do you hate missiles?
why do you like hurting me???? what did i do to you???????
