Hey everyone, I used to play EVE a while back for a good while, but stopped and switched to other games for various reasons. I decided to try the game out again and I'm rather surprised with how much things have changed. I understand all the basics of the game for the most part, but there were some things I didn't get to learn back then, and now there is so much new stuff that I got a lot of catching up to do. So I might be asking a few things over the weeks. Let's start with something simple at first.

Basically I'm asking about Electronic warfare, I don't really understand everything about it. I get that ECM's are your basic jammers, and ECCM's are the counter measures, but what do the different signals mean? From what I understand it is a way to mess up the lock on ability of anyone you are fighting, and correct me if I'm missing anything. Is it all really worth investing in though? The idea sounds good, but does it work and is it worth the money and time in skill training?

Also with propulsion jammers, is there anyway to counter that?

I'm looking for as much information on the topic as possible so if anyone has a link to good guide on it that would be great, though feel free to discuss anything. Thanks a lot and I'm looking forward to being around for a while. :)

Stasis webifiers are countered by going faster; you cannot negate the percentage drop in speed. Warp jammers are countered by Warp Core Stabilizers, though these murder your lock speed and range.

The different signals you refer to I believe are the different sensor types. Caldari ships use Gravimetric sensors, Minmatar use LADAR, Gallente use Magnetometric, and Amarr use RADAR.

ECM is great, though isn't very strong except on a ship dedicated to its usage, and these ships tend to get killed first in any group combat, and lack the damage output for solo work. Still, they can be effective at quite a long range; make use of that range and you can jam with relative impunity in group fighting.

This helps a lot, thanks. Back in the day I mostly just mined, but I'm trying to focus on combat more this time around, thats why I'm trying to gather as much info as possible. Glad to see the community is still so helpful.
