TL;DR for Mothership pilots - you get to keep them in their current state for a while longer:
NO CHANGES WILL BE MADE TO MOTHERSHIPS IN DOMINION. Since they are part of the original rebalancing effort, the DEPLOYMENT OF FIGHTER BOMBERS WILL ALSO BE POSTPONED.Yes, this means also no fighter-bombers yet.After weeks of testing on Singularity (and players coming to terms with the changes), this happens. An interesting point gets raised by Mookuh in the discussion thread:
If motherships won't get changed for Dominion, will their HP also not be boosted? Meaning 2 Titans can insta-DD a mothership?To be honest, all in all it's a pretty wild decision from CCP to scrap the MS changes - a few days ago there was talk of allowing Supercarriers to dock, and now if a Mothership is on the field (for some inscrutable reason) it can get blown up by 2 titans doing a drive-by... good show, old chap :(
There's also a lot of details (and graphs) regarding how XL turrets will be changed in terms of range, dps, tracking etc.
- XL blasters get a massive boost to optimal range (yay Moros)
- XL Railguns are slated to have the longest optimal range of all, with falloff on par with XL Beam Lasers, but for extreme ranges XL artillery performs best.
- The difference in DPS between variations of the XL Turrets has been reduced. XL Beams deal the most damage (not by much), but have shorter optimal than rails
- The siege module tracking penalty will be reduced to -50%, out of siege tracking still gets nerfed.
Discussion thread - now with more rage that MS changes are scrapped.
