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!
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.
