A Guide to Interceptors

Posted by Jon Wood on Nov 26, 2008  | Comments

A Guide to Interceptors - EVE Online Correspondent Andrew Wallace writes this article giving players some tips to playing with the Interceptor class ship in EVE.

Interceptors are about speed and finesse. They are about precision and winning a fight in structure. They are about understanding the limitations of your ship and the limitations of your opponent. I suppose the latter would be true of any ship in EVE, but I think it applies to the interceptor most of all.

Amongst the most fragile of all the combat ships in the game, a simple mistake can see you sitting in a pod in a matter of seconds. Skill, and even a bit of luck, can make a massive difference in a pinch. At the time of writing, the Quantum Rise speed changes have been on the server for less than a week, but it's clear that the interceptors are relatively untouched, if not better. They may not reach the utterly ludicrous speeds they did before, but they are now completely unchallenged as the fastest ship class in the game. The new bonus that reduces the signature penalty of an active Microwarpdrive makes interceptors the only class that can effectively speed-tank while using one; even medium sized gun are going to struggle to hit them now.
