How about if Gallente pilots got a bonus when flying Gallente ships? Like 5% extra drone damage or something?

And equivalents for other races of course.

Shouldn't be anything overwhelming, just a little edge if flying your own race's ships.

Whacky idea, haven't seen it before, anyone like?

The big problem here is that most new players start a character for one race, then later on decide they prefer the ships of another race.

I, for instance, am a gallente pilot that prefers to fly missile boat caldari ships.

It's not the player's fault that CCP hasn't established a way for a player to experience racial ships and so on before they actually chose their race.

So this buff would actually be awarding players that got lucky and chose the right race, or would reward players who learned then made a race specific alt.

Until CCP establishes a training program that allows you to experience each race before you actually chose a race I feel this is an unfair advantage.

Plus it kinda takes away from the idea of cross training.
