As far as I know, none of my assets were lost to the update, and if they were it was stuff I wont miss. After 5 years stuff gets misplaced all over the galaxy.  I did take part in some of the destruction though.

I understand what you’re saying and why you want it, but I think the reason that you don’t see that is that it would make for terrible gameplay. EVE is complicated and hard enough to add the idea of someone who you can’t even see erases your ship without you even knowing they are there. Read more

They removed Interdiction Nullifications from the interceptors that are getting buffed in this patch a few months ago, and basically no one has flown one of them since. They’re giving them some extra raw damage, but leaving interdiction off, to attempt to entice people into flying them again.
