I want to do a little research while letting my drones tackle the rats

I aggroed the rats, launched drones and immediately they start targeting the drones....all of them.

If you want to give us more of a challenge how about making the rats use more sophisticated tactics?


Sounds like they did to me.

For the record I just ran a Serp/Gurista WC without any problems. I use a Kronos atm but rely heavily on small drones to clear tacklers. During WC I simply wait a bit with the release and only dump the drones when everything has aggroed me. This I even dropped the drones in the 2nd and 3rd room before I have full aggro (just waited for the initial aggro to go on me) and everything went fine.

So I can see no change to before Tyrannis (except for the slightly crappier loot).

you talk a whole lot like you think you know more than others. fyi noob, 800mm ac are much better than artys.


FYI foolish troll
, you know nothing, mael=arty platform, mach=auto's platform... those who fit arty's to a machariel and those who fit auto's to a maelstrom either dont have the isk for the two ship's or dont have a clue about ship fitting to best effect.
Also i know what i know, if its more than you Crying or Very sadCrying or Very sad you'll get over it.


EDIT...Im guessing your in the 'takes over two hours to complete' club?
Lol...noobsRolling Eyes

Wut? Funny you say that. After the projectile buff last Decmber, I only used AC Maels for Angel missions. Goes, much, much faster.

I haven't used it for missions, but I can confirm that the AC Maelstrom is very effective for Havens and Sanctums. 40Km falloff is plenty of range.

Old thread, but I've not been on the Eve forum lately.
Thanks OP, you made me laugh to hell and back in RL.

Good service, will subscribe again.

I ran several L4 mission to test the AC Maelstrom (43km falloff), the pool isn't large but it definitely shines in short-med range missions. It blazes happily in Zazzmataz and Stop the Thief, for example. Better than a Raven, probably slightly below or on par with the CNR.

The Achille's heel for the AC Maelstrom, at ranges 30-40km it has trouble chewing BS, anything over that range - you might as well make yourself a cup of tea while you're at it. Dps envelope range is the number one enemy for this boat.

Now, when if look at the Mach or Vargur, if you can extend the envelope to > 75-80km (and lock range > 90km), then you have something that's extremely viable for all the L4 missions without having to chase things down.

if you read the eve survival page you would know how to beat it and also make public schools proud.

Apologies I try not to troll the serious forums. In all seriousness the mission report tells you everything you need to know. You only have to be able to kill a couple of ships without drones.
