I very much doubt CCP considered this. But now that sensor boosters are being nerfed, can we get a reduction in the lock time penalty that come with fitting a cloaking device. It makes this much more severe with the new changes.

He was just smacking and adding nothing productive to the topic, probably because he has personal issues, and or wastes all his thought power on eve.

Yeah it would be nice in reducing it a bit, especially if you cant change scripts while cloaked(haven't tested that yet)

The purpose of scripting modules was always to force us players to increase or tactical options and decisions, probably work in the long run but meh Razz.

Anyway since it doesn't directly effect that module it's unlikely to be tinkered with, however any tinkering that may be done would be better off scaled rather than a flat reduction like you suggest. Why? well currently the 10 (20 base but everyone has cloaking v don't they Laughing) sec is flat across the board before you take your boosters etc. into account meaning it gimps all ships equally however if you simply reduced this to say 5 then friggets would gain far more than bs would, in fact it could quite probably become standard fit if that happened.

One possible solution would be basing the penalty on the scan res of the ship fitting it making all classes as equal as possible without pwning the bs and creating wtf? intys. Will my boosters adversely effect this? Well tbh i don't have a clue which takes us back to my first statement on scripts.

Perhaps ccp won't touch cloaks, just sit back an wait for us players to find new solutions with current toys, perhaps we might actually see those cloak recalibration rigs being used after trinity Razz. Just a thought Very Happy

Hey how about we script cloaks! 1 Scrippt gives us no/low cap useage like today but we can be scanned out and the other one is higher cap usage but it cant be scanned!

Stop fitting cloaks to everything and you won't have any problems. Not particually aimed at you shin, more at the general eve pvp attitude of cloaks and nanos atm

How about giving stealth bombers and black ops bs a bonus to lock time penalty (just as they get a bonus to recalibration time) and even increase the penalty on the cloak Very Happy

People are fitting cloaks to everything nowadays, it really gets old. Imho if you want a cloak get a ship that is designed for cloaking, penalties on normal ships using cloaks need to be increased, its way to easy to fit them.

Agreeded leave the cloaking buffs to Recons and Covert Ops. and screw over other ships, although I do find it funny when those guyz get poped by a Mom in Gyerzen every so often.

I don't really care about the penalties cloaks have on unspecialized ships, but the scan res penalty on black ops has to go.
