IRONY 101 -

When I started playing EVE two years ago and wanted to bring my Drake to nul PvP, everyone laughed at me.

I was told on more than one occasion "Armor tank RR gangs only noob! Drakes suck for PvP. Missiles suck for PvP."


All my discussion and aguing went for naught and I moved out of nul as a poor distraught Caldari pilot.

Now look at what roams.

pfft to all of ya! :D

i use to and still do fly drakes in fleet pvp all the time because:

1) They are cheap. I can fit, fill with ammo, and insure one for under 60 mil.
2) They have a brutal tank and are almost never called primary unless you are drake heavy.
3) They have good range.
4) They are cost effective.
5) Shield tanking is superior to armor tanking. AKA i dont need RR.


Even low skilled pilots can be fairly effective in them which makes them appealing as a fleet weapon.

Drake is being indirectly nerfed all the time as CCP has been making progress on improving lag, making alternative fleet-types perform as intended.

A year and a half ago, stuff like geddon and hellcat fleets would not have been as successful as they are today.

Drakes are pretty horrible ships. Pilot flying drake with low skills is a joke on battlefield. If you can't murder drakeblob with same numbers of some other decent setup you're terrible in this game. Only thing I can agree is that flying drake in fleet is no brainer just activate missiles and fly in some designed direction. It doesn't make them good or particularly effective though. I personally laugh at drakes trying to follow my ship, which isn't even particularly fast.

Yes they are so horrible that threads are started every week on how OP they are and need to be nerfed.

So this horrible ship also requires what? 10 mil sp to fly? 20 mil? You can fly one decently with meta gear, a proper fit, and 3 - 4 mil sp.

Yep Drake Armies are complete crap and not effective at all. Thats why no one flies them and that is why no one came up with the "firewall" tactic to counter them. Because we can all just jump in any decent fitted ship with the same numbers and take them out.

Nope they are terrible that why people use them all the time in fleet pvp cause they suck so bad.

Yes because if a ship can follow you determines how good it is.

Stop trolling you noob.
