Featured Article: EVE Online: Electronic Warfare Guide

MMORPG.com EVE Correspondent Joanie Spalletta writes this overview guide on Electronic Warfare in CCP's EVE Online.

Every race in EVE has their own unique sensor strength. Caldari is Gravimetric. Minmatar is Ladar. Gallente is Magnetometric. And Amarr is Radar.

ECCM is Electronic Counter Counter Measures. ECCM modules are used to boost your sensor strength (Gravimetric, Radar, etc.). There is also a Multi-spectrum module that boosts all four types of sensor strengths.

ECM Bursts are modules that emit random electronic bursts intended to disrupt target locks, meaning it will be difficult to lock onto other ships. Electronic Counter Measures modules consist of five different jammers: Gravimetric Jammers, Ladar Jammers, Magnetometric Jammers, Radar Jammers, and Multi-spectrum Jammers. Again, each race has their own unique sensor strength. So, always keep in mind what race the enemy ship is. You can also use a Signal Distortion Amplifier to amplify the distortion signal generated by electronic counter measure systems.

This week's Game of the Week is Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.

WAR is based on the Warhammer fantasy setting of the popular miniature battle game from Games Workshop. Warhammer: Online began development when Mythic Entertainment, the guys behind Dark Age of Camelot, acquired the Warhammer license back in 2005.

After much discussion and hype, the game finally launched back in September, unleashing the forces of Order and Chaos on the Warhammer universe like never before. Since then, the game has managed to make its way onto the short list for game of the year, best new game, or whatever they call their year end review of the past year in gaming, of every major publication that covers the MMO genre.

Here at MMORPG.com, WAR walked away with two honors from the 2008 Reader's Choice Awards. The game's Public Quests were voted the most innovative feature of the year, and WAR managed to beat "none of the above" to win the award for best new game.
