This article will cover the mission ‘Your Undivided Attention’ part of the Advanced Military Career Advancement arc in the MMORPG Eve Online. Chatting with Ijumachi Vuonolailen provides me with the mission briefing for Your Undivided Attention as follows: “Next up, you’re going to be doing some in-the-field learning about interdiction; in particular, about warp disruption. Warp disruptor modules can be fitted to your ship in the medium power slot. When activated on another targeted vessel, they disable that ship’s warp drive and thus stop it from escaping. Capsuleers commonly refer to this as “tackling.” As you can probably tell, the ability is immensely useful. Much of capsuleer vs. capsuleer combat begins with interdiction…If you think you’re ready to try this out yourself, then I will give you a Civilian Warp Disruptor. You’re going to be testing it on one of the pirates fleeing from the Headquarters you just blew up. It seems one of them escaped the explosion, and we don’t want him getting any ideas about revenge. Pin him down, but don’t blow him up. We just want to scare some sense into him. He might be useful to us down the line.”
The agent also extensively informs me about warp disruption and the two primary factors that affect the efficient use of those modules on opposing vessels. The first factor is the disruption range, limiting the distance you must be from the target ship to keep the warp disruption field active on their ships engines. Afterburners can greatly assist with keeping that distance and preventing the enemy from evading the range of your disruptors by flying away. The second limitation is disruption strength, which can be either one point or two points for scramblers. The disruption strength number, must overpower the warp core stabilization points added to a target ship in the event they are equipped with such modules. There are also select vessels that have a base stabilization factor, although the vast majority do not.
For Your Undivided Attention I will be granted a Civilian Warp Disruptor to be fitted to the ship I wish to use for this mission, which in this case will be my trusty Merlin frigate. The rewards offered to me for the completion of this mission stand at 28,000 base credits with 25,000 credits as a bonus for completing the mission within 1 hour and 22 minutes. After accepting Your Undivided Attention a mini tutorial explains to me the purpose and use of warp disruptors, then instructing me to fit the provided disruptor to my ship which I go ahead and attach before undocking to start Your Undivided Attention.
Undocking from the State War Academy it’s time to warp to the encounter for Your Undivided Attention. Dropping out of warp puts me in a pocket of space with a large gas cloud with the Fleeing Pirate surrounded by two guarding Guristas pirates. I quickly engage my afterburner and approach to within 20km of the vessel, activating the warp disruptor and preventing the target ship from using its warp drives. As soon as the module is activated, the 2 guarding ships warp away without a fight, and the now lone fleeing pirate sends me a neo com message pleading for his life. This act marks the mission completed in my journal allowing me to head back for the rewards for Your Undivided Attention.
