too bad thats already in game...its called point defense system. it costs 800 c-points.

yes we all are aware of that, but just wanted to point it out.

PS: why are most things player come up with on the forums so brutally OP?:confused:


i have an idea for a new engineer ability myself:
i call it EMP!

disables all ships in a 50km radius for 2 hours. Your ships musst be shut down before using it, that makes u vulnerable for 2 seconds.

skills that improve that: my imagination and candy:rolleyes:

What part of the ability do you think is OP? It basically is for spam clearing.

It's FAW for turrets...

potential as a minesweeper ability. I think you should drop the bonus damage to non-small craft targets, lower the damage bonus (or remove it, as you typically clear them in 1-2 shots anyway) for destructibles and small craft.

I'm not sure what you mean for 'next five attacks.' Are you talking about five firing cycles? (In which case this is exremely OP) or the next five bolts? I'd alter the wording to be one or two turret firing cycles (ten seconds). It should also proc the cooldown on rapid fire.

Its basically a kitbash of scatter volley and FAW. If it's implemented, scatter volley should no longer affect turrets.
