Hello there. After reading the forum, and post some reply, it's my turn to make a post.
So here i go:
I'm a member of a small Corp. We usually make self mission to survive and gain money, and we start to take some mineral's order from bigger Corps.
Having this "few people more work" situation, i have to ask you people if u notice a nerf (a necessary one, i don't complain) in the loot of the Pirates.
I usually hunt Ascribers to gain some good equip for the Corp's members, 'cause we have no money to buy the equip and travel all around to take them.
But now ascribers give no more 250mm (nor 250protos, i hunted 65 of them without 250 of any kind on my cargo), only dual 150 and some low-value staff.

Keeping the point we "cannot" buy just one proto at the price of a Thorax (that's what someone ask me), i'm askin' if someone made a scout reconaissance of the sistems around to find some good loot (i presume hunting bigger pirates cruisers)..i hear about some thougher pirates, but if someone can help i can even make my Corp move to another region (i'm actually in lonetrek, hunting in 0.0 sistems).

Right now it seems that either some of these "top of the line" items are either no longer being dropped, or are rare enough that with the huge selection of new equipment the pirates are dropping, not many have found them again.

Right now I'm *thinking* the latter might be the case, but it might be that the former is.

The new definition of rare is 1 person per month will probably get one. Thats if they are lucky.

I have spent hours hunting pirates in many different regions. And after killing well over 100 of them I would have to say that the loot tables were badly nerfed.

I get better loot off the little gate pirates than off the 50k pirates. Strange but true.

I dunno why the loot tables were so drastically changed... there was nothing wrong with them before.

They should have just added the new items to the loot tables and been done with it.

This new loot table makes the somewhat-better-rare-weapons far, far too rare and leaves the people who didn't have them before this patch out in the cold and permanently screwed, more or less.

"I get better loot off the little gate pirates than off the 50k pirates."

this is correct.....
sitting in a orid field last night with 4x6k and 1x20k inst-spawns.

the 20ks where dropping crap.
some dropped a bit of ammo and a normal rocket launcher and other variations.
didnt see a single gun or mining laser.
no decent shileds of any kind.

atleast the 6k's dropped the odd shiled booster and warp stabaliser.

what i wanna know is where are the BP drops ?

True the 'rare' drops must be very rare indeed. Whereas we normally would end a night with 6-10 250 gauss, we didn't get a single one.

Also no more MWDs where we are. Although we did get the 7% hybrid damage pump. which never seemed to drop before and even the 6% hybrid pump is dropping.

Maybe it's system/belt specific now and not mob/spawn type?
