Oh Dear...

Shields down, armor taking damage sir! Shouted my crew chief. I considered my options; it was now apparent that I would not be able to defeat this myrmidon in my thorax even though the pilot was younger than myself.

After a moment's deliberation, I gave the order to deagress, and mwd to the gate; pronto.
Sir, our MWD is not working!
Shit.

I was going down; about to lose my first ship in almost a month. I rushed to the pod, dragging TallyRaya's newly regenerated corpse all the way. Brushing aside panicked crew members with practiced ease, I readied the pod for ejection.

After getting my pod out of there; I had a chat with the victor, he explained to me that they actually did implement the warpscram kills mwd idea. As I was unaware of this change, I charged into battle, safe in the knowledge that I could just mwd out if necessary.

Obviously, I was wrong; but I think that this is a good thing. For starters, afterburners and warp scramblers are now viable pvp mods on cruisers. Just because I lost a ship learning this fact doesn't make it 'bad'.

I will, however, go over the release notes before getting into any more fights.

Awww come on man EvE is one game where you absolutely HAVE to read the patch notes...every time... and the dev responses to questions too. Try some ECM drones they work well in a pinch. Better luck next time

And now it's even more beautifully complicated than it was before! Choices, choices, choices! Sorry I was otherwise occupied when you inquired about roam this evening...I woulda gone otherwise.
