So we found a big problem when trying to kill a nighthawk today. Our carrier could not assign fighters to anyone. Thinking it was a glitch, the carrier logged off and we killed the nighthawk with normal methods.


Afterwords we decided to do some experimenting, and what we found out was.

The carrier can only assign fighters to people who are uncloaked.

The carrier can only assign fighters to people who are within overview distance.

If you cloak up, you lose control of the drones.

Sounds like a carrier fix not an issue.

I just blacked out and woke up dumber. Now I have this annoying girl in my head telling me to kill kittens.


And yeah. It may make null sec carrier kills easier, but this severly gimps Whole carriers.

Mmmm, carrier pilot tears. The rarest kind.

We must be sure to bottle some of these, as there will certainly be another drought shortly.

the underlined is the only thing I see as new and "issue". The rest seem pretty viable and IIRC were already that way. One of the stealth changes CCP?

Is that seriously your Sense of Humour, would you rather CCP Devs being on a player level and interacting or would you rather them standing on a pedestal not communicating at all.

so now a carrier has to be on grid to give fighters? may as well not bother with fighters cos 1. they cost alot and 2. t2 heavy drones would probably be better for most targets

I want a decent answer to a question from a paying customer, are these changes to carrier mechanics intentional or are they bugs. I'm just getting a little sick of ccp running there company like a team of college kids programming code in someone's basement. Employ some public relations staff.

What do you expect, it's a dev, not a member of the PR or marketing divisions.

Funny how I can actually do that in EVE... Friend cloaked in the next system, or in a wormhole, and I can still wire him 100 ISK. Rolling Eyes

So game mechanic or game bug?

Laughing at internet spaceship perverts.

Mommy, mommy, there's the man who jumped out of the bushes at the park and assigned fighters to me!

You both made me giggle and trolled me well. I actually tried to search the patch notes for this change you describe.

This space is reserved in case someone points out the change really is there and I can't search for crap. Be warned though, I have no qualms about employing the Chewbacca defense.

I would say, file the Bug and let the experts decide.
They may even give you a reason for their determination. Wink
