Ok you got jammed from 200km out, yay, now you sit there and tank a bit until the falcons cycle ends or misses one, hmmm whats this, perma jammed with eccm overheating, cool.

They are the bane of my eve life atm, i cant even use remote eccms because we are all perma jammed so long we dont have a chance to lock each other up.

Falcons are just another reason why everyone now flies nano crap. Give the average slow boating big fat heavy pilots a chance ! Its all im saying, thanks for reading.Razz

Although this thread started pretty much with a rant, or whine, or whatever people choose to name it, I'd like to add that ECM is also the bane of small ships, because they're that much easier to jam.
One more reason to fly caps?

1. Just because something disagrees with you, is no valid reason to change it.

2. Speed has always been the preferred method of survival. Going fast predates T2 ships.

3. You posted in the wrong forum area. Game development suggestions have their own forum, where you can get told off for suggesting changes based on your own narrow view of the game.

I am amused by this post, endlessly amused.

Specialty EW ships are good at what they do, it is what they are supposed to do. People just tend to be hating on ECM these days. Fit a sniper with 2xECCM and see what happens to the falcon. Take an Apoc, put on two ECCM - Radar II's to achieve a 72 sensor strength vs. 15 jam strength of an overheated racial. If you don't manage to one volley him with a rack of Tachs or Megabeams, he will be very scared to come back on grid after warping off.

If you are in a nano-gang and having troubles dealing with falcons, I feel no sympathy at all for you, for you are a nano-gang. You may be able to outrun damage, but you can never outrun EW.

An Arazu can easily be a Falcon's worst nightmare.

Stealthbombers can be a pretty good way to neutralize Falcons as well.

Sorry that your battleship isnt unstoppable.

Or I dunno, bring ECM of your own ?

Wait that's just crazy talk

Smartbombing. That will soon cure your falcon problems. A nice fast ship in your fleet able to get in close can soon turn the Falcon into salvageable material.
