Just curious. Either forgetting them or in battle, thanks.

I'm a terrible drone mother Sad All the poor, abandoned babies, just left floating in space. I try to tell myself someone eventually comes along and gives them a good home. It helps ease the pain.

Fighters are even more terrible to lose, because you know that's an actual non-capsuleer pilot in the cockpit who just got vaporized.Sad

♪To all the drones I've lost before♪

I never forget them anymore, but they still wander off and get themselves exploded, or just take damage from unseen forces. I stopped feeling bad after the first hundred or so, but the cost of T2 mediums and heavies is still enough to make me curse.

I cry myself to sleep every night thinking of the poor drones I've lost or abandoned and live in fear the drone police will come knocking on my door.

I don't have boatloads of isk. I don't use tech I drones anymore, I just recently started using tech II's and they add up quick. Tech I's? Screw it, no big loss.

I vote for a new trainable skill that will allow you to detonate drones/fighters/bombers effectively turning them into flying smarbombs.

I feel bad at first, then I remember how they dissobeyed me, going after the wrong targets, not focussing fire, and I get mixed feelings. Then I get a new pack and I forget about all those feelings, being replaced for the happiness of playing with this new little pets, and it all start over, the joy of training, the little frustrations when they don't do what they should, the happy first killing... but whenever I become deeply attached to any of this little beasts I left it in the hangar, where he greets me whenever I dock back home and we play until I left for my next assignment.

Every single one of you has now been reported to the RSPCD (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Drones).

YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!!!

Losing drones is terrible, but I feel even worse after losing my ship crew.

I hate losing my drones, but... well... let's put it this way...

If a huge bear shows up wanting to eat you, wouldn't you let your pet dog attack it just to get you a chance to get away?

On several occasions I've allowed my expensive missioning ship to go deep into structure so my drones could make it back safely.
I've lost thousands but I mourn every one Crying or Very sad

Having lost a couple of ships waiting for drones to return to drone bay rather than just leaving them behind...let me just say.

F*** them.

I always forget to repair them so i always have some busted ass drones flying around.

I only lose them in PvP and maybe a few in missions.

When missioning and using drones, they tend to go insane after a while, and are ALWAYS atacking the trigger when you go and get a beer from kitchen.

Coming back realizing this fact taking action and calling them names.

And when one of those little buggers explodes cause i was´nt paying attention i mumble: "You got what you deserved", with a diablolic smile on my face.
