I will let this thread say it all:

http://www.eve-search.com/thread/781729/page/1


In short:
We have implants modding pretty much every other weapon system in the game, but not a single implant which modifies drones! This is simply wrong, give us the full spectrum please! It would not be a technically hard thing to do, as it only consists of adding a new set of implants to the game.

Without limiting it, it would go a long way just to have at least these 4 basic ones:

+1/3/5% Damage Modifier
+1/3/5% Tracking
+1/3/5% Optimals
+1/3/5% Speed
+1/3/5% EHP

Note that these implants would NOT affect Fighters and Fighterbombers. The debate is open as to whether there should be implants for these as well.

I love my little drones and like any other weapon system, they need proper affection when they're starting as a young Hobgoblin I and growing up with their dreams of one day being an Ogre II. Implants connecting you with them show you care.

I agree, drones are after all my prefered weapon system despite the fact that we don't get implants, low slot damage enhancers, or damage rigs (aside from sentry).

I think it only makes sense to balence them as the other weapons are with the same sort of mods and implants for them.

Oh, absolutely! It's the neglected drones that turn into Rogue Drones, and that results in horrors like this: http://www.eveonline.com/background/potw/default.asp?cid=30-10-06

This isn't the only love drones could use, but it's one of the more obvious things that is lacking and could be easily added to the game with little to no negative side effects.

Rogue drones might be considered as one source of certain drone implant sets, since currently RD exploration sites/complexes aren't so good versus the sites of every other faction because they lack the normal faction drops other factions can give.

Whatever the actual way of getting such implants is going to be, the idea in itself is certainly a good one. Supported.

I think the ccp devs in general have an extreme prejudice against drones because of the lag they have caused (moreso in the past, but the prejudice remains).

So whenever they see anything about improving them in any fashion, it makes them immediately recoil. They want to discourage drone use as much as possible to cut down on the perceived lag threat.

The first step for this drone improvement and any other will be to convince the devs that drones are not evil incarnate--they are part of eve and as such need to treated with the time and support they and their users deserve as part of the eve community.

Objection: if we did something to improve drones, that would disproportionately benefit Gallante, and as we all know it is vital to the ongoing development of EVE that they should get a boot to the face at all times.

Add to that more mods like other weapon systems. Like a damage increasing mod for low slots.

Agreed! Drones, again, is the only weapon system which has a mod affecting tracking and optimal, but nothing affecting damage.

Supported - but the easier thing to implement would be to make the Sentry Damage Augmentor rig a Drone Efficiency Augmentor for *ALL* types of drones - combat, utility, mining, and EW.

Keep the calibration as-is on it, as well.

I really like the idea of rogue drones dropping drone implants.

As long as they don't affect fighters or fighter-bombers.

True. They should work along the lines of the distinctions made between drone skills and fighter skills (Fighters and FBs are, technically, drones and fall under the same training category, and yet the skills modding drones do not affect Fighters).
