Recon Bonus's
Pilgrim: (Tracking Disrupt) (Drone DPS) (Nos/Neut)
Arazu: (Dmg) (Sensor Damps) (Scramble Range)
Rapier: (Dmg) (Painters) (Web)
Falcon: (ECM) (ECM) (ECM)

Recon Tank
Pilgrim: Good Armor or Speed
Arazu: Medium Armor or Speed and/or EW
Rapier: Range and/or Speed
Faclon: EW tank only

Falcon is very very good at 1 thing and 1 thing only, thus we can not nerf it as no one want's to see a ship become uterly usless, and Falcon alts must make up at least 30% of CCP income.

Only solution to the ever increasing complaints on this ship is to "change" it, for the better.

Idealy by changing the ship from 3x ECM bonus to 2+1 other or 1+2 other like the rest, and giving it a tank option for when ECM cycles fail.

I personly have no idea's that would be good, I have though about ECM scripts for say Target Breaking and Max Targets, I think limiting an attacker to just 1 target would have it's usess
Also giving a caldari ship drones?

Hmmm.

The secondary e-war on the other recons in some cases complements their weapon systems of choice OR is aimed at rendering their racial enemies ineffective.

What could you give Calamari recons that is effective vs. Gallente but doesn't duplicate something else?

There's another thread floating around with suggestions about drone disruptors.

Would you want the Falcon to do damage and something else and lower its ECM bonuses ?

Not quite, like some one said thier bonus's compliment thier other abilitys and fill role-gaps in fleets.
I think posibly a shield resists bonus and shield capacity to compliment the ECM failed cycles.

If a Falcon was quite a tricky bugger to take out, and can give 50% jam rate on say 3 ships it would be a less anoying yet still a great EW ship. As the incoming DPS to your fleet would be greatly reduced and due to no perma jam no one would use ECCM.

Ah, yet another person who doesn't understand WHY the other recons have bonuses to two different types of ewar. Here's a hint: the split bonuses are a good thing, and the other recons couldn't do their jobs properly without them. Changing the Falcon's bonuses, on the other hand, would be a massive (and possibly crippling) nerf, nothing more.

There is a reason why Falcons are usually killed first if possible. And why people only count Falcons in hostile gangs and not the other recons.
The other EW is just not as devastating as ECM is. No one likes to sit around not being able to do anything. It's really boring for those pilots.
I'm all for changing the falcon so it's not such a threat anymore. (While keeping it attractive to the people that fly them.)
