How about getting so real electronic warfare modules?
Real electronic warfare actually involves most of the time introducing viruses in the target computer to create disruption or overload/shutdown systems.
In the case of EVE, we could have a new module (on the attacker ship) that forces a targeted ship random module to reboot as if it was unmounted/remounted (which takes a few seconds in space).
The modules could have various size (S, M, L) that directly impact the probability to reboot a module.
A S module alone could not reboot a Capital ship module because bigger ship have more redundancy implemented that smaller ones.
But say 20 S module would have a chance at it, versus 1 L.
And the randomness of the module being shutdown means that you could shutdown a MWD (reducing chances of escape) or launcher (reducing dps).
On the ‘defender’ side, its means that you might get a chance to survive if only a minor module is rebooting or you get podded.
I think this type of module/warfare would add more randomity/interesting effect in PVP.
Comments and suggestions are welcomed.
