CCP is trying to Re-Balance the Eletronic Atack Frigates making it a little better, since it is one of the less used ship in the game (along the black ops and titans).

One reason that this frigates are not as used as others are, is because they don't do anything special. They are weaker then an assault ship, slower then a Interceptor, don't cloak like a covert ops ship, nor drop bombs like a stealth bomber. Also they are useless compared to a Recon Ship that can be fitted to be the useful version of the frigate. Also the EW modules that it uses can be distributed among the fleet and you would have the same effect, since every ship can use its modules.

So, I see in this topic: ("Use of Heat, Targetable Modules, and Electronic Warfare" a way to turn this most harmless ship in something that would really be recognized as a treat! Make electronic attack frigates able to use Heat Electronic Warfare! And this ship would be unique!

The main idea, is that it should increases the Heat on the target ship modules or rack, like the overload does, with some mechanics options that must be discussed:

A. form
1.It is a normal module (Point and activate)
2.It is a module that can or must fit scripts (to target low mid or hi rack)
3.They are different modules for different targets (low,mid or hi rack).
4.It is a passive module that gives other EW modules this bonus.
5.It is a ship bonus that affect EW modules.
6.Other, please comment.

B. Target
1. Heat up the rack (slowly damaging all modules equally)
2. Heat up only actionable modules ( Like they are overloaded, if there is only passive modules no damage is delt)
3. Heat up only active modules ( if there are nothing activated no damage is delt)
4. Heat up modules based on something ( Energy consumption, Power-grid use, CPU use, other)
5. Other, please comment.

1. Can't Target EW immune ships (No Capital Fry)
2. It must take a good time to be effective. (No Instant-Fry)
3. It must consume the rack resistance before affect modules (No Instant Damage)
4. Damage can be repaired on stations or using nanite paste.
5. Some new skills are needed for its use.

-This module Would be a HI ENERGY SLOT and require 10 CPU, 10 PowerGrid and Consume 0,3 energy/s, at max skills(all lvl5), also would have a range of 45KM.

Please consider this Idea, i know this goes along ccp plans, and that this new feature can be well balanced... Also this would be an awesome addition to the game.

Thanks for your attention, and please comment and support this.

C. Balance
6. It have to be made so that a group of lets say 5 of those dont insta fry whole BS (heavy stacking penalty for each rack)

I will not support it at this point, but go ahead with brainstorming...

One solution for this module balance is making it a HI-Energy slot, and since it is only usable by electronic attack frigates you can fit at most 3 of them simultaneously.

Also this module could have the limitation to fit only one per ship. then the balance would be allot easier.

For fitting this module Would require 10 CPU, 10 PowerGrid and Consume 0,3 energy/s, also the module could have a max range of 45km, this way the module would fit well on the EAFs of all Races. Also would fit in their optimal range. This values could be acquired with max skills. I'v used EFT for this values and it seams good to me.

I acknowledge there is a problem with EA frigs but I have to say I don't like this solution. Not supported.
