It's a bit crappy having to fit 6 multispecs to jam someone now.

How can a dev team that's worried about balance release the tech2 backups and leave the offensive counterpart at tech1Question

... So you should be able to fly around in your scorp and kill anyone right, just because you want to fly a scorp, other people shouldnt have a chance to defend themselves? I mean, scorp vs armageddon, armageddon gets jammed, scorp wins. why?

Plus, AFAIK tech II ECM isnt coming out until the ECM system gets changed, because tech II ECM would unbalance things.

Right, tech2 ecm will come after ecm gets an overhaul.

That isn't the point. The point is that since Tech II ECCM is out, then it would be only fair that there is Tech II ECM as well to compensate. Or do you just want to fly around completely invincible to everything?

And my point is that EW is currently ubalanced, and needs an overhaul, Tech II ECCM systems help to alleviate that unbalance and makes it more balanced, if tech II ECM was introduced, everything would be unbalanced again.

Thats why Tech II ECM isnt being introduced until Electronic Warfare gets an overhaul.

First of all you're not invincible.
Secondly, by your logic, we already got tech2 shields in the game, why not guns/missiles? Wink

Let's wait until the ecm changes are finalised and we'll see Cool

I was being somewhat sarcastic regarding the invicibility aspect.

And in response to the guns and missiles, the devs have stated that they are getting ready to put those into the game, and were awaiting final adjustments and balancing. When it comes to Tech II ECM however, the devs give vague responses and hint at a theoretical ECM revamp that may or may not happen some day in the future.

See the difference in how the two are treated by the devs? I can't pretend to know where exactly the devs are with regards to the revamp of ECM in the great scheme of things, but do you think it is something we would see before Shiva? No? Maybe after Shiva? Maybe just Soon™? Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised and find that the revamp is almost ready to be on Chaos.

Yes, Tech II stuff is gradually introduced into the game, so not all pieces are available at exactly the same time. However, again, using your example, I have not seen anyone complain about there being Tech II shield equipment but no Tech II guns. There have, however, been questions, complaints, and CSM questions as to why there are no Tech II ECM equipment.

Anyway, ultimately this is just my opinion. Very Happy Take it for what you will.
