The other day I logged on to do my PI in the hole only to come to the conclusion that I couldn’t undock my Epithal. Turns out I was not allowed to have 3 warp stabs in it.
Now, I tend to live under a rock when it comes to eve online updates. I don’t really look at them unless people point them out to me, and it has been ages since I had been on /r/eve.
Turns out that if I had actually looked at things, I would have known what was going on.
As most of you know there have been a few changes to both nullified ships and stabs and such. These are no longer passive things but need to be activated.
I personally am not sure if I like the change. Am I affected by it? Not much I guess, I usually use an interceptor for travel but that is about it. The stabs on my Epithal are there just in case anyone does catch me in the odd hours I do PI and even if they do it is not like they will be getting much out of it.
However I do know that this is a HUGE change, and not really for the better. At least not for those that PvP. I have heard that null sec ratters love it though. And I can’t really blame them.
With the active module you are not as quick as you used to be, you can still go gate to gate but if you’re out hunting, time is of the essence. The fact that you now have a timer that may or may not fuck up your next system you’re going through. That just makes it even easier for the ratters you are trying to catch.
And some of those are quick as they are, especially with local automated alerts and such.
I hope that CCP and I guess Pearl Abyss know what they’re doing because this has annoyed a huge part of the player base.
Although with how fast this was put out there, I feel like they may have dropped the ball on this.
Time will tell.
For now I have changed my scanning Tengu and gave him an active nullifier. It’s not like I am using it much since I am still abroad.
Stay tuned o7
