October Release
Oct 9th

ECM Balance Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Several changes to ECM are coming with the October release that will provide more counter play options to those who find themselves on the receiving end of target jamming effects.

Pilots who find themselves target jammed will now be able to lock the vessel jamming them, to allow for retaliation and counter play against the effects of ECM.

Nullification Changes Tuesday, October 9, 2018

With the October release, capsuleers will benefit from changes to interdiction nullification that will see the effect removed from combat interceptors (the Claw, Crusader, Raptor and Taranis).

These changes aim to preserver the unique role that interceptors play as scouts and tacklers, while introducing more significant trade-offs for the powerful mechanic that is nullification.

Performance Improvements Tuesday, October 9, 2018

The October release brings several small changes that aim to improve performance, including the removal of AOE damage effects when a titan class hull is destroyed, and optimizations that reduce the amount of unneeded data being sent to the client from the game server when a pilot engages warp.

Visual Fixes Tuesday, October 9, 2018

This release will see fixes to a number of graphical issues, including incorrect display of the structure build effect, fixes for occlusion maps on Gallente frigates and tweaks to several skins and dirt levels.

Triglavian Balance Iteration Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Based on community feedback, the Damavik will see some slot layout changes with this release that aim to make it a more versatile frigate.

Losing a low slot and gaining an extra mid slot should make the Damavik more versatile, giving a wider range of tactical fitting options.
