Greetings Capsuleers,Rabbit- EVE Echoes Officia Discord
As a countermeasure to relieve the blockade near the stargates that causes unwarranted fatalities during autopiloting and transportation, we will be launching a hotfix today to adjust the damage dealt by gate guns. Any crimes committed in proximity to the stargates in low-sec systems will be subjected to heavy fire.
A scheduled time for the hotfix is yet to be decided. An announcement will be made 30 minutes before the hotfix.
Fly safe, pilots!
Many are still wondering about the final result of the vote. With the hotfix only containing a change to the Low-Sec gate guns some believe that option #2 won. However, there wasn’t any talk about the warp disruption that was core to that options idea. Therefore, a fair number of “pilots in the know” are saying this points to option #3 or some form of it being the primary pick. If you need a refresher on the options, you can find it here. However, if the guns’ range, application, or targeting AI were not changed a small fast ship could still perform the same 145-150 km tanking that many camps put into use.
The hotfix for gate guns damage adjustment will be released 15 minutes later at 10:00 (UTC+0). The DPS of Sentry will be the same as Concord after the hotfix. Remember to fly safe!Rabbit- EVE Echoes Officia Discord
While Rabbit’s statement about Sentry DPS being equal to Concord, gives us some idea, the true measure of changes was listed in an in-game announcement. “The damage os sentry guns in the low-security region will be increased to 160 times after the hotfix.” I hope this means that the Gate Guns have 160 times the DPS they did before, and that they have better application.
