Hey everyone! We've happy to announce that in the Kronos release we will be introducing a new medium version of the Micro Jump Drive!

This module will begin restricted to Combat Battlecruisers, Command Ships and Deep Space Transports. We will consider expanding it to some other classes in the future but that is a discussion for after we've seen how they work out on these initial groups.

The MMJD uses the same Micro Jump Drive Operation skill as the LMJD and has the same range (100km), spool up (12s base reduced by the skill) and cooldown (3 minutes) as the Large version.

It has the following requirements:
Powergrid: 165
CPU: 51
Capacitor: 197

We expect that these modules will be a very exciting option for battlecruisers in both fleets and small gangs.

Battlecruisers have been a little overshadowed by battleships and cruisers in recent months and having the option to use MJDs combined with their dps and low cost should create some interesting chances for clever players to show off their abilities.

These modules will be on SISI for your testing pleasure soon. Let us know what you think!

It would be nice to be able to use these on T3s and HACs.
Edited for clarity.

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

Quoting so that your shame is eternal.


(It says right there in the second sentence what can use them, and for now, it ain't cruisers)

That would completely defeat the point.

Excellent!

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. So, why do I post here? I'm stubborn.

And what if they are 120km away instead, and have their own mjd?

I'd rather you don't introduce this module at all. It isn't balanced at all, especially on tier 3 BCs.
#13 - 2014-05-17 16:58:51 UTC
Kinda negates the advantage of the battleships though no? I would cut the spool up, cooldown and range of the Medium MJD by 25%. i.e. jump to 75km instead of 100.
Also considering those medium ships usually have shorter range than battleships, 75km might be more useful except in cases of catching battleships or escaping from a fight.

This better be a joke.

Will Command Ships also include the Industrial Command Ship (Orca) ?

Combat BCs are still in a very bad place and due to their cruiser ranges won't derive much benefit from MMJDs.

I can definitely see how this will be a Very Cool Thing in a lot of situations, especially with Attack BCs, but not as much in medium to large fleet fights.

I dont think that is a good idea at all.

All it does will give people more reasons to fly the Tier 3 BCs and the normal bcs are still bad.

should be fun

Hmm, and here I thought MJDs were designed as a BS niche, as a fix for their, uh, rather horrible mobility.

Fozzie, does this mean you think BCs are in a similar situation as battleships were when the LMJD was introduced, or did you think they could just use another tool in the box? Smile

I liked the MJD, however my problem with it as most of eve currently is lack of tactical choice, leading to cookie cutter builds for every ship. It would be nice to see some variables with the MJD as an example;

Increase the cooldown and spool-up for increased range, decrease for shorter ranges. This could be set similar to obit range.

Give it some scripts that alter its use. A script to give a massive speed boost for a short burst for example, Or another script that blooms the Mass of the ship making it better at bumping larger ships.
