Really starting to get into the ew side of the game have most ew support skills to 4. Whats the purpose of t2 racials the best named use less cpu and cap and are roughly in the same price range. Am i missing something?Question

how effective are Sensor Dampeners against NPCs? do they have ridiculously large targetting ranges, making the dampener's range reduction useless?

is there a source that says what the targetting range of specific NPCs is?

No, you aren't :).

Top named is better than T2. I hold out hopes they'll bring out an ewar spec that makes it worth paying the additional cap and CPU.

NPCs cheat. Lots. They jam just fine, but their locking times and ranges are ... well more than enough that damping them is pretty pointless.

Someone mentioned earlier that you can't run multispecs on anything less than a battleship. For those aspiring EW pilots out there, don't worry, a blackbird can run them just fine....and at its max targeting range.

A med cap booster filled with 800's is just barely enough to keep them going. Furthermore, if you fit only nos across the top, 3 meds and 1 small nos (the most my blackbird pg can hold) can almost power 5 multispecs indefinitely with decent skills. Granted, you don't want to get that close, but if it comes down to it, you have that option.

I do have one question though. Alot of people are saying here that anything closer than optimal means that the jammers will work properly. However, I have heard from several people as well as from experience, that when someone gets really close to me, my jammers fail.

I had someone jammed in a battleship for 3 cycles, as soon as he came close to me, my jam broke. I failed the next cycle. As soon as he moved further away, I was able to jam again.

Does anyone know for sure if close up targets (closer than optimal - 2xfalloff) are more difficult to jam?

Is this info on EW still current? I noticed this thread is kind of old. Just wondering.
