Idea originated in this topic: Exploration blues: So null space is basically untravelable:
What do you think about a module that does that kind of thing?
It would create an area of effect like a normal bomb - with the difference that you are piloting the thing yourself and get blown up and podded in the process. Maybe it would use all the energy you can put in your cargo in form of cap boosters…
It would be possible to fit on T1 frigates. Industrials would be suddenly freaking scary if you could fit that kamikaze module with the cap-booster mechanic.
Probably when I igamine some of the bigger entities with a lot of pilots could just warpin 100 Magnates to a cap and activate the Module. It might make bombing too easy.
Maybe give them a random damage type so they kill the effect of each another like bombs that get blown up by damage types other than their own type.
Or the timer is random somewhere between 5 and 15 seconds so you have good chance that the fleet kills a great deal of itself before the majority can deal damage. At least some kind of diminishing return might be a good idea.
Any opinions and ideas how such a module could be balanced?
