As some of you have seen some of my previous posts, I am trying, and will continue trying to raise awareness of the huge problem of capital damage application against subcaps in an era with more and more caps. Carriers and Supercarriers mostly, due to incredible fighter damage, huge speeds with impossible tracking. But what gives these fighter boats this strength is also the Networked Sensor Array. This module makes a capital ship lock very fast and for incredible distances and can apply it’s fighters in the first few seconds after coming through a cyno or a gate. On top of that it gives great EWAR strength and with limited drawbacks. This module is used in PVP but also in PVE situations. Even if it doesn’t improve DPS it still makes the ship apply it way faster then normal.
So if we look at Capitals - Dreads / FAX / Rorquals all of them who uses their special ability module: Siege, Triage or Industrial core, they all prevent warping while active, so why NSA doesn’t do that? It has a 60 seconds cycle that can be interrupted anytime by warping.
Networked Sensor Arrays cycle should be increased and also prevent warp until the cycle is complete and disallow remote repping assistance. I understand what that means for PVE carriers and supers, but these have been used before NSA appeared.
I’m not sure exactly what effect will this have upon huge carrier fleet fights but it will surely improve fighters damage application against subcaps.
- raise cycle to 120 seconds.
- remove energy consumption.
- restrict warp/movement while active.
- cannot receive remote reps.
I understand some of you guys might think this is a HUGE NERF. but imagine this is only 1 module and has nothing to do with the ship.
This will make dmg aplication slower against subcaps, and make carriers and supers more vulnerable if they choose to use the NSA.
What do you guys think ?
