A few years ago, CCP changed missiles so you needed to fit a TP to your ship or use a Nighthawk.
In time, people learned to cope with it. Tank setups were changed to better adapt to the new situation where some hardeners had to be swapped for TPs and now we need more ECCM. There aren't a lot of meds left for that sort of stuff, especially on Caldari ships, unless everyone is to fly Tengus now.
So what you are "just saying" is that the raven cannot do everything at once in missions and this isn't fair? Cry me a freaking river. There are other ways round jams, fit FoF missiles or use drones to take out the jamming ships.
I am not saying that I can't run missions in my Raven anymore, nor am I crying.
I have found an even better way around this problem: Leave Caldari Space and move to Amarr space, where all the NPCs do is tracking disrupt your missile launchers.
What I am merely saying is that CCP performed this change without putting any thought into it.
Sure, fixing something is always nice and ECM now works the way it is supposed to work but at the same time, they did not think about the balancing of it.
"Broken ECM" as we had it before was "fine" because there were sometimes more than 4 ships doing it, which could still lead to you being jammed quite often but it wasn't really frustrating (like getting damped to 10k locking range) but now there are working ECM NPCs and there are lots of them. From my own experience, Marauders and most sub BS ships are more or less perma jammed.
The few ships that have enough meds to spare to fit 2,3 or even 4 ECCMs get hit as well, because 4 ECCMs wont help you against more than 4 "working" ECM ships.
