Disclaimer by CCP Phantom: As explained by CCP Lebowski, there was no stealth buff. If something has changed with anomic missions with the recent patch that wasn’t mentioned in the patch notes, this was not intended.
A few already noticed it, almost all anomic missions were stealth buffed “overnight” without any notification in patch notes by ccp.
We’re not talking about just 2 to 3 % here, more like around 20 to 40% of buffed shield (boost) / armor (rep) amount and around 15 - 25 % increased dmg output. So this definitly deserves a notification to the players! Especially if we talk about kind of end content pve missions, where u have to / want to use expensive ships / fittings cause they’re more difficult then the normal L4 missions anyways…
Be carefull, u will probably lose your ships, if u use T2 fittings. Even deadspace fitted ships may struggle to complete. Some missions are still doable, for example the team burners (probably cause of kite strat) and Serpentis base burner.
In my opinion it’s a sad joke that they not even put a 2-liner into the patch notes about that, I personnaly lost 2 expensive ships cause of that and I think there will be a much bigger amount of npc killmails the next days cause of that. I Already read about a lot of others players with - of course - a similar opinion on this
Maybe ccp wants to squeeze the cow a bit more by pushing players to play more accs to compensate or to be even able to to the mission. Also strange that there is a plex sale right now. Dunno for what reason u want to let your players (your paying customers) run into surprise deaths.
I on my own already quit my sub to the game, not cause of the mission “nerf” alone, more cause of that unprofessional treatment of ccp “against” their own community lately (there is a lot more swirling around these days) but I hope a few can save their ships from being destroyed.
