Before the launch of the patch, the Interdiction Nullifier was slated as a low slot module, but when the patch went live, the nullifier was assigned to a high slot. In the case of an Interceptor, specifically the Malediction in my case, this results in a 33% DPS loss when the new Interdiction Nullifier module is fitted.
Given the Malediction’s configuration with 3 launchers and that the disruption immunity used to be a passive hull attribute, is it feasible to create a fourth high slot to accommodate the Interdiction Nullifier module?
This would be useful as I use the Malediction for the Smash and Grab Epic Arc where I need the DPS but also need the ability to escape ganking.
I never understood why people wanted this navigation module to be turned into a high slot module. And I understood even less why CCP gave in and did it.
The entire category of navigation upgrade modules consists of low slot modules and that makes people weigh the benefit of one to the other when fitting their ship: meaningful choices such as “will my survivability increase more with extra agility, warp core stabilisation, speed or nullification?”.
Interceptors (and T3Cs) would lose a low slot item for the nullification module, but that could easily have been compensated with better default agility on the hull (and an extra low slot on the nulli subsystem).
But no, people complained, CCP turned it into a high slot module and now this defensive navigation module doesn’t compete with other defensive navigation modules on a hull, but is a default choice that reduces the amount of offensive options on the ship.
I think that was a bad choice.
(As we’re on toptic of bad nullifier choices: that was not the only bad choice they made about the nullifiers, they also gave the restrained nullifier the wrong meta name.)
No, I’m not saying that at all and you’re doing your usual routine picking a fight through straw manning. The Nullification module WAS going to happen so then they wanted the most optimum version of it for them, a hs version. Carebears don’t care about weapons. I’ll leave it at that.
