Status effects are applied effects that may benefit or harm the subject.
Unless otherwise specified, status effects does not stack in magnitude; instead, the subject is only affected by the greatest value on a per stat basis. That being said, the game still keeps track of each stack, allowing lesser, longer-duration stacks to take effect once a greater, shorter-duration stack has elapsed.
Friendly Effects[edit | edit source]
These effects can only be applied by friendlies. Hostile ships will never apply these effects to their enemy.
Support Fields[edit | edit source]
Each friendly support field applies its own unique effect.
Overdrives[edit | edit source]
Overdrives apply to the ship that triggered it.
Hostile Effects[edit | edit source]
These effects can only be applied by hostiles. Friendly ships will never apply these effects to other friendly ships.
Stasis[edit | edit source]
This effect penalizes forward, rotation, strafe, and/or rear speeds, depending on the exact source.
The effects of Stasis can be reduced through Stasis Resistance.
Modules are obviously not affected by Stasis because they are stationary objects.
Weapon Disrupted[edit | edit source]
This effect negatively affects the Firing Cycle of all equipped (excluding Overdrive) weapons as follows:
- Fire Disruption forcefully ends the firing phase the moment the debuff is applied.
- Charge Disruption increases the charge time for the specified duration, or until two Firing Cycles have elapsed per weapon.
- Cooldown Disruption increases the cooldown time for the specified duration, or until two Firing Cycles have elapsed per weapon.
The effects of Weapon Disrupted can be reduced through Weapon Disruption Resistance.
Shield Disrupted[edit | edit source]
Those that do not have shields are immune to this effect.
Ablative Suppressed[edit | edit source]
This effect negatively affects the ability of ablative armor to recover as follows:
- Damage Threshold Disruption increases the Damage Threshold stat of the ship or module.
- Ablative Recovery Disruption decreases the Ablative Recovery stat of the ship or module.
Those that do not have ablative armor are immune to this effect.
Phase Hacked[edit | edit source]
This effect negatively affects the ability of screens to enter Phase State as follows:
- Phase Charge Hacked decreases the Phase Screen Charge of the fleet or base.
- Phase Drain Hacked increases the Phase Screen Drain of the fleet or base.
Note that the effects will not disappear even when the hacked ship is destroyed; the full duration must expire before the effect is gone. In addition, the effect is stacked multiplicatively when applied across multiple ships or modules in the same fleet or base. For example, if one ship in the fleet gets Phase Charge Hacked by 50%, the fleet's Phase Charge Rate is halved. If another ship gets hit by the same effect, the Phase Charge Rate is further halved to 25% of the original.
Those that do not have screens are immune to this effect.
DoT Stacks[edit | edit source]
Each stack of Damage Over Time (DoT) deals a certain amount of damage whenever the interval ticks. This damage can be intercepted by defenses, and in addition, shields and screens do not take damage from this effect.
Unlike other status effects, the number of stacks of DoT can be stacked, which consequently allows its magnitude to stack. The current number of stacks is shown on the top of the DoT icon in combat.
DoT Stacks cannot be applied to Altairian Pylon Emitters.
