[10:20] <jezza_mcwaffle> That is the new counter to them now unfortunately, half your fleet being ECM ships
[10:41] <titus.tallang> new and exciting gameplay for fax pilots!
[10:41] <titus.tallang> it means you get plenty of time to admire the beauty of 3D space in EVE
[10:41] <titus.tallang> because it's not like you can do anything else
[11:07] <jezza_mcwaffle> Spend the entire fight just looking at the shiny texture packs right
[11:13] <darren_fox> Yeah, looks like the cap changes pushed the wh-meta from neuts -> ecm.
[11:15] <darren_fox> This has probably been suggested before, but here is another attempt at hitting the ecm issue. What if ecm was changed to affect the activation time of highslots (turrets, launchers, remote assistance) and targetted midslots?
[11:16] <darren_fox> There are several issues to work out of course, but it solve the issue with ecm currently being digital and only countered by affecting the chance
[11:17] <darren_fox> Example: Land a bonused jam; cycle time on turrets/launchers/remote repair just got increased by X %
[11:17] <darren_fox> This allows for ecm to be stacking penalized as well
[11:18] <jezza_mcwaffle> If ECM was stacking penalized then the world would rejoice
[11:20] <darren_fox> Since overheating already affects cycle time on many modules, it shouldn't be impossible to code either
[11:25] <titus.tallang> what if ECM was changed such that>KILL ECM
[11:26] <titus.tallang> anyway on a serious note your suggestion imbalances shield vs armor even more
[11:26] <titus.tallang> since now armor needs to wait X% longer while shield is still instant
[11:27] <darren_fox> That is true, but introducing some sort of _module lag_ would feel even worse I think
[11:29] <titus.tallang> i have no idea why we even made faxes jammable
[11:29] <titus.tallang> when pretty much everyone in the focus group was against it
[11:29] <darren_fox> Still, I think I could live with remote shield being strenghtened a bit (it would still suffer the same loss in remote EHP/time) if it means I don't have to play counter-jam the counter-jammers online
[11:30] <titus.tallang> but hey, vOv
[11:33] <titus.tallang> if the meta is "every fight is decided by throwing the dice on who gets the most jams" then so be it
[11:33] <jezza_mcwaffle> Dreads being jammable, could be worse. But FAX being jammable just made solo triage, well no longer a thing. And small gang triage like 2-3, still pretty much LOL GET REKT M8
