Eve Online Carrier Changes

CCP recently introduced some significant changes to Carriers in Eve Online. Here's a quick rundown:

  • Mobility: Carriers can now use Capital Micro Jump Drives and Capital Micro Jump Field Generators. This allows them to jump short distances within a system, even in siege or triage mode, and bring along other ships for strategic deployments.

  • Conduit Jumping: Carriers gained a new innate ability called conduit jumping. This lets them transport fleets directly between star systems, opening doors for faster mobilization and hit-and-run tactics.

  • Role Redefinition: These changes aim to make carriers more relevant outside massive fleet battles. With improved mobility and jump capabilities, carriers can now play a more active role in smaller skirmishes and nomadic gameplay.

Overall, the focus seems to be on increasing carrier flexibility and strategic options, making them more attractive for a wider range of situations.
