Are there any changes planned for the next patch to ECM drones?

i.e. Nerfing them like ECM in general was in Rev 2?

Because when ECM was nerfed it was changed to a chance based setup, I know the drones were missed however. I'm wondering if anyone knows if there are any changes to them planned or if they have already been changed since Rev 2

They seem to be pretty balanced to me. Chance based like the rest.

I'm 99% sure that all ECM was always a chance-based system actually.

I hope they leave them as they currently are.

Ecm drones are not an I-win button they die very quickly if you target them and with the change to the shield recharge bug they will be even less effective. So a nerf would render them useless imho.

Cool, i wasn't suggesting they needed to be nerfed. Was just asking.

The only thing ECM drones lack is the timer that you'd get when being ECM'd by a player.

I would, but I appear to be jammed.

ECM drones are not overpowered....unless your have a large large drone bay to chuck em out like ammo - so any non Galante ship will do you. Shocked

Nope. If you had 22 points on someone and he had 21 sensor strength, you'd perma-jam him.
