Yay. They are giving ECM ships the equivalent of a single inbuilt single t2 signal distortion amplifier, but with an extra 10% range bonus. How merciful.
That single freed up low slot will, somehow, allow us to fit a mighty tank that lets us perform the role of taunting damage sponge. Maybe if we were allowed to fit Assault Damage Controls in there it would actually be useful, but we certainly can’t do that.
No, this buff is still not worth it. We are still forced to fit multiple racial jams because of the ECM split, and that drastically compromises our ability to fit a tank to the ship. I mean, we could fit differently, but at that point we are not really going to be able to jam people, well, insomuch as jamming people is possible now.
Given we can no longer jam out an attacker, there really is no reason why ECM module strength shouldn’t be doubled, or even tripled. And certainly no reason for ships like Marauders, Dreadnoughts, and Force Auxiliaries to be immune to them.
Edited to correct a typo. P is not S.
