What happened to my EWAR ships? (My Rook and Blackbird and Kitsune) No more target lock breaking? I read that it now works more the opposite…it works like a “taunt” and that it keeps the targeted ship from locking anyone else but you while jammed? Is this correct? I read the official post but it wasn’t really clear on exactly what it did.
So, what good is this 240mil isk ship in a solo setting now? Is the tank even worth running around in a ship that costs this much? I slapped an X-Large ancillary on it and the shield boosting is nice… but caps run out.
Anyone running a Rook or similar in a solo setting now days? If so, have any good advice? I hate to sell it as it was my favorite ship for nearly 10yrs. I just find it hard to believe they would make a whole genre of ships so obsolete for a single player… I really liked running C3 and C4 sites in my Scorpion simply bc of the jamming ability I had…
That’s just crazy!! These ships really don’t seem to have much of a role anymore then. I knew EWAR was a little OP, but I always figured they would have come up with some counter or a “bubble” that reduces jam strength in fleets. So long as your buddies are in it, your chances of getting target broken is greatly reduced… I never thought they would have done it like this…
Well, looks like it’s time to sell the old girl and get something else. DPS is the name of the game anyways… but that old EWAR sure was fun to play when you wanted to break the meta.
I noticed it with NPC ships having just came back myself a few weeks ago. I would get 3 pithi ECMing me and could still lock one. I originally thought that it reduced the number of targets you could lock by one. I think that would have been more balanced. The way its useful now is if your ECM ships are similar to a monitor in which they have heavy tanks but no offensive ability( outside of ewar).
I really do miss the old devs. They understood players and Eve.
Since someone pointed me to where the ignore button is and you offer nothing intelligent or valuable to any thread ive seen you post in, im just going to go ahead and make you the first resident of that list. I would like to be the first to congratulate you on this honor.
