Radars have different lock distances for core sizes; but it remains unused.

This is the lock differences for core sizes on an L radar, but it is the same for every core size.

having this in the first place implies this is possible/was a feature, but right now all the values are the same so it makes no difference.

 

Imagine if this actually was implemented, it could change the meta completely and maybe even make smaller cores viable. If the lock distance for XS ships was at 40,000m instead of 300,000 , people would reconsider using L cores, since XS ships could hit and run around them easily. Perhaps to counter this, fleets would bring their own XS ships to fight back, or use an M core, or have a fleet of S cores, or use XS weapons, the possibilities are endless.

 

and yet, the feature lays in the dust.

 

NQ, why isn't this implemented? if it was it could finally break the L core meta, and actually make combat exciting!

It was like that few months ago.

This was probably the main reason for the patch, there was no defence against PvP only XS ships (practically just space engines + L railguns) for a regular ship before the patch, now they can at least fire back without having meta PvP ships as an escort all the time.

imo they should have kept it that way. now that weapon sizes are limited by core size and there are cross sections it would be a great feature to add back in.

Again NQ understands very little about the way we play the game.

They could have kept the lower locking distance of the big cores against the small ones.

Now, we even have the opposite effect, with L cores but with all the glitched elements to reduce the cross section.

NQ will be able to do balancing mics from time to time... But that just doesn't interest them.

Didn't know they tied weapons to core size, I'm not interested in PvP in the current state... In that case they could reverted the lock distance patch because XS ships with XS weapons don't stand a chance against L (not that it would change much, but it would give XS/S transports more survivability).
And IMHO glitched elements should be a bannable offense when used as an unfair advantage (I've already seen screenshots of PvP ships with stacked elements so some groups are already using it regularly).
