This is my question to PGI/Dev's, what was the logic and thinking behind it?
ECM in its' state is really OP/broken by the fact that certain mechs in certain chassis can carry them with missiles to boot. I think the combination is what is the problem (yes stated many times already I know), but I haven't seen an real fixes that are swift and easy for PGI to fix. If they just change which mechs could mount (yes I said mount) ECM it would be rendered fixed and a great compromise to the problem at hand. With the fix we would have mechs that are currently only used to level to elite/master proficiencies become viable and needed once again on the battle field. The current ECM OP/broken mechanic mechs will be fine and still be viable and strong in their respective chassis/class too, but would give us the needed information war fare, but go along way in the diversity which a lot of peeps scream for as well.
Two glaring examples are he Commando/Raven, both ECM carry variants are the ones with the most/best suited missile platforms, why? The Atlas choice, again best missiles and most modules, why?
By the above choices we have negated so many other variants in respective classes or type of similar Mechs. Why not just place or allow ECM on all the variants that lack or require better use of such power. Such as maybe the K-Copy Atlas (it would give it it's need role of support better), maybe the Jenner with only lasers (K also I believe) and do it to similar variants per-Mech chassis. This would take away the stealth streak mobile abuse platform of certain mechs and find a role for others in one fell swoop. Use variants in chassis that are mostly ballistic and/or non-missile boating capable to be able to mount the current OP/broken ECM suite we currently have in-game.
Just my one cent of brain power left tonight.
