We have added a line under “Place and Tactics” to the rules:
Activating a Warp Disruption Field Generator without a Focused Warp Disruption Script or Focused Warp Scrambling Script loaded is NOT allowed.
It has been brought to our attention that some unintended edge cases exist around Heavy Interdiction Cruisers and their use of the Warp Disruption Field Generator without a script loaded. As the Warp Disruption Field Generator without a script loaded serves no major purpose in the tournament environment, we are banning activating it without a script loaded.
EDIT: To clarify as there been some (lots) of discussion in the community regarding this ruling.
The Warp Disruption Field Generator without a script has no functional use inside the tournament arena while working as intended, as ships already are unable to warp away. While an edge case does exist that would provide some reason to use the WDFG insider the arena without a script, this edge case is entirely unintended functionality and considered a bug. While in some similar cases these edge cases have unofficially been allowed to exist as unintended features, the edge case that exists in this case would not be treated as such. We also chose the specific conditions for the ruling to ensure that would be no ambiguity as to whether the rules was being broken by a pilot, both for the referee and for the pilot.
