All the counter measures were nerfed due to crying by klinks in beta. Even MES which sort of evened the tables was nerfed due to crying.
Anyway back to topic. I would like to see a diminishing return type of detect cloaked. It would add some suspense to both sides. For example, say detection worked out to 12 km but only had a 20% to work. As you got closer the odds got better... at 7 km it was 50% ... at 4 km it was 80%. The detection check would run every 6 seconds.
Now that would keep everyone on their seats. Because even at 4 km range, no one knows for sure if the area is clear or not
