Hi m8s,

In March, we're releasing a number of balance tweaks and we would love your feedback.

WARP DISRUPTION FIELD GENERATORS
The current state of Scripted Warp Disruption Field Generators is a little too oppressive, especially to the small gang PvP scene. We'd like to open up propulsion module options. As such, we're going to make some changes.

Changes:
  • Remove the Warp Scrambling effect from the Focused Warp Disruption Script
  • Introduce a new Focused Warp Scrambling Script with a -20% range bonus

The new Focused Warp Scrambling Script will have the following ranges (with max skills):
  • T1: 16km
  • Meta: 18km
  • T2: 20km
  • Faction: 21km

The blueprint for the Focused Warp Scrambling Script will be available at all the same place & price as the Focused Warp Disruption Script blueprint is available.

Questions & Answers

Q:Can both scripts (Scrambling and Disrupting) still point a titan?
A: Yes :)

Q:Will links continue to not effect range?
A: Correct, Command Bursts will not effect the range of scripted Warp Disrupt Field Generators

Q:What is the new cycle time?
A: The cycle time hasn't changed. The new scrambling script has the same cycle time as the disruption script.

Q:Will either of the scripted points keep caps from jumping gates?
A: Yes, both the scrambling script and disruption script will stop capitals from jumping gates.

Nice, although please leave HIC points to scram supers without the script. (Looking at you hels)

due to the longer cycle time this isn't such a bad idea.

Yay! Now I can fly something other than 100mn AB ships (if I were to ever find time to log in).

Great change. At first glance, the numbers look reasonable for counterplay on both sides, also.

Nope. We all just used 100mn and were able to ignore them completely. Which broke the game balance even more until it was fixed. Smart players will always find the most optimal solution.

It kinda balances itself, you can overheat but not for long!!!

With a faction WDFG + heat you get roughly the same as a linked lachesis with a t2 scram
