I don't mind it so much. I don't use guided weapons so it has no real affect on my game play.
It's not even that, the strategic distortion is immense.
Yeah I could give F all about missiles. It's more about invisible 100 ton atlas packs popping out of thin air and humping your face off. The maps are already small and ECM just increases the odds that any given pug/4 man is going to turn into a cluster F brawl.
I like brawling ok, but the game design atm with the way ECM is set up tends to stack the deck towards that gameplay style. In our 8 mans we have scouts but you can never tell if you will get scouts or not in pick up games.
Plus the fact that ECM stacks so it becomes an arms race for the ravens. 2 ECM will get worked by 3 ECM etc.
That whining aside I've actually gotten pretty used to how it is now. But the PPC changes sound like a fun element even if that does not really balance against a DDC pack holding to cover and popping into exsistence 100 m from you.
