I know its not exactly true lore wise, but why not let the BP, (Which weighs the same and takes up as many critical slots as ECM), act as a partial counter? Let people who have a BP installed get targeting data, but no info as to what is on a mech? So you can have the ECM mech's go for blockage, and the BP equipped mech's work to find and get targeting data for their group? For some reason, I always saw the BP as being a counter to ECM...
Besides, what does a BP really currently do? Make target locks for LRM's and Streaks occur faster?!?
Which also makes having BOTH on a Mech very desirable. ECM equipped Light Mech's where supposed to be working Recon to find the enemy and provide targeting and location data, not Stealth the entire team around the battle field. Part of the problem is the whole "capture this location to win" that exists in Assault, and the lack of any meaning of capturing resources currently in Conquest.

Been playing table top Battle Tech since the late Eighties. Been playing table top RPG's since the late Seventies. I've played in LARP's, computer games, board games, poker games, Naval war games, almost ANY kind of game you can think of. And I'm still sane. Sort of any ways...
