For you incursion-runners, the long-standing "OTA Wall" issue is finally being addressed:
Today Team Five 0 made some changes to OTA sites, due late Summer. They are as follows:Good stuff! This change should put Vanguards back on the menu for incursion-runners.
1. Move the tower closer to the entrance
2. Remove the Maras
3. Reduce the effective hit points - including a significant Niarja and Tama reduction
We are aware that the OTA sites are causing a lot of problems at the moment, and while we still have long-term plans for Incursions, we didn't want to make you wait for the OTA changes. I will update this thread when the changes hit SISI.
In other news, dictors no longer automatically generate 60 seconds of aggression just for the act of dropping a bubble. I've tested this on Sisi and it's implemented there and I understand it's now been implemented on Tranquility as well. If true, this means that defensive bubbles on gates are once again a go for all us dictor pilots. It also means that to aggress a dictor will again require player action.
In other words, CCP is quietly undoing a couple of bone-headed decisions, something I obviously approve of... ;-)
There's still one enormous bone-headed decision still implemented in game that a lot of players are taking advantage of on a daily basis. I've gently mentioned it here once but I'm not going to make a tent-pole post out of it until it's fixed, so as not to grief a lot of people making serious bank on it. You know who you are. Make hay while the sun shines, I believe is the term...
