Jump to: navigation, search

Grapple allows a player to control the movement of an NPC or an enemy player's Ship. When a player or NPC has been grappled by an enemy ship, his ship's tile will appear yellow. A player can drag a grappled ship by jumping to a connected sector.

Grappling and Dragging

Grapple Chance and Resist

When a player attacks and successfully hits or grazes the target, there is a random dice roll to determine whether the attack will result in a Grapple. The Range of the dice roll is from 1 to the Target's Grapple Resist plus 100. If the result of the roll is less than the Attacker's Grapple Chance, then the Target will be Grappled. The Chance to Grapple formula (assuming Hit or Graze) is defined as:

  • C = Attacker's Grapple Chance
  • R = Target's Grapple Resist

Chance to Grapple = C / (100+R)

Grapple Mechanics

When a player successfully Grapples an enemy Ship and drags it to the next sector, a few things happen:

  • The target's Corp Jump, Earth Jump or Rift Jump command is canceled.
  • The target's movement cooldown is set to 5 seconds. (note that this undoes the effect of Stun)
  • If the player who grappled the enemy manually jumps to a connected sector, his follow is suspended and he must refollow the target.
  • If the player who grappled the enemy follows another ship to a connected sector and drags the enemy ship with him, his follow is not broken or suspended.
