Moved into a WH with a Magnatar affect and I was curious how to tell if the bonus to the ECM was working for the Tower's Defenses?

How can I tell the difference between the status of a normal ECM (Take White Noise for example) and one that has an affect in the WH?

The simple way to check would be to take a ship, increase its sensor strength using fittings to the point where it's higher than the jam strength of a standard ECM, but lower than the augmented jam strength of a magnatar'd ECM, and then just try to jam it with your starbase. If it gets jammed (this might take many cycles as it will already have a high ECM strength) then you know it's working.

e.g. if the base jam strength is 50, and it gets boosted to 60 by the magnatar, then try jamming a ship which has 55 sensor strength - it cannot be jammed by a 50 ecm, but a 60 will have a 1/12 chance of jamming it per cycle [example uses abstract numbers just to make a point].

Arent still any E-War related bonuses/drawbacks still disabled due to that exploit around 6-9 month ago ?

FYI, this is not how ECM works.

Apologies, it was late and clearly I was thinking of it entirely backwards - what I meant to say is that the 55-sensor ship would always be jammed by a 60-strength jammer, but wouldn't be jammed every cycle by a 50-strength jammer. So, you can still use a ship to check whether your bonuses are applying.

The only one which comes to mind was to do with reducing tracking below a certain threshold, and that should have been fixed some time ago.

It's even dumber than that; the ECM bonus doesn't work at all, on any ship.

They were removed after the ECM exploit came to light and AFAIK have never been reinstated. Certainly, all current WH guides do not list the ECM bonuses for Magnatar WHs.

Other than that, a recent patch removed all WH effects from coming into play on a POS.

So a double no.

So are you saying the ECM Jammers I have fit to my POS don't work at all, or that just the bonus from the WH doesn't work at all?

You won't get any added effect from being in your WH.
