There will be no drone boat, the devs are not going to remodel the abaddon just beacuse 15 ppl on some forum whine about it.

The domi is getting nerfed so it wont be as good soon (EW NOS) what are you ppl going to whine for then? A missle BS maybe?



I personally believe that a drone ship would be a great way to make the Amarr have some variety to our ships. I fly both amarr and gal ships. and can honestly say that the domi has worked 10 times better for me than any amarr BS (yeah 10 times, I thought it was only 9.8 but was wrong) the only time my Amarr ships have been good was when I fit them with projectiles. And that really throws people for the **** loop. Every time I have attempted to pvp in my amarr ships with lasers people think "this will be a cake walk just a lil nos n they are done, good thing I have my eanm's and DC" Should I not be a fan of amarr any more since they seem to blow at every pvp situation? I was a die-hard Amarr enthusiast untill i lost my gazillionth geddon/ 124342534534'th apoc. The only time I have realy messed ppl up in an amarr ship was in my arbi. 3 sentry drones really made that a fun fight against hacs...120km is a long ways while getting pounded in the arse. Wink But dual webs, ab, warp jam, 3 med nos, and tech 2 small drones really tear appart intys... in a hard way Smile

i personally wanted the hyperion to be a missile/damp boat, but whatever


amarrians should get a drone bs to be in line with the arbitrator

It'll suck, it'll be just a pathetic sub-par domi, but still It'd be nice for ONE of the Amarr BS to be a Khanid ship, I'd be up for a Drone boat with a few missile slots, it wont happen but meh...

And by every right if amarr did get one it should be worse then the domi. Gallente is the drone race not amarr.

Although if you guys want a craptastic subpar domi all the more power to ya :P

I can see the case for an Amarr drone boat. After all, the other races all have at least two weapons systems (Rails/missiles, drones/blasters, missile/drone/projectile) but Amarr seem to be stuck with lasers and ... tanking?

On the other hand, a different colored domi is pointless. How would you make it different? Maybe something that heavily favors long distance? Bonuses to range/sentry tracking, penalties to drone speed, and a ship that's hard to tank. (Low number of mid/low slots, but enough highs for a few long distance lasers.)

Haven't really thought it through, but just saying you'll get farther saying 'I want an Amarr drone boat, it'd look like this, and not obsolete/be obsoleted by the Domi because: foo'.

Is it really that hard to train Gall bs to 4 and jump in a Dominix if you want drones? Thought not.

there are already several threads regarding this which also provide more detial and discussion like this one for example:

abaddon droneboat thread

i guess the op of this one right here felt that there would be a need for a new thread where we can leave the content behind and just go for /signed :)

hmmmmmmmmm.......



nah.




why? simple. RP-wise, Amarr got the short end of the stick by becoming the least versatile race of the game.


such drawback is covered up by having the biggest armor, cap and weapons with dmg mods built in right out of the box.

No. This has been discussed enough that I don't think I need to explain why not. If anyone would like to get itno a serious debate over it feel free to convo me.

Train for a Domi if you want a droneboat. You should already have armor tanking skills and it's not like you have to train hybrids.

With my training/hauling alt, with just Gallente Frigate III at the moment, it'd take me 6d16h for Gall BS 1 and ~14d total for BS IV. That's not by *any* means prohibitive time-wise.

Kindly lend your support and ideas to the thread running that Udyr Vulpayne was kind enough to link. Very Happy Hopefully the devs are eyeing it too while they work on refining the new tier 3's. Send the flames to some other thread. Cool

By this logic the Arbitrator shouldn't exist.

Anti-signed. I do NOT want a sub par drone boat as my tier 3 battleship thanks! Thats what I fly a domi for (j/k). Laughing

Seriously - dumb idea. If you want a drone boat, just train gallente battleships and you already should have the drone, nos, tanking etc skills you need. If you don't have those I'm not sure why you're asking for a drone boat. Shocked

i tend to agree with the Amarr purist arguement with the turret milarky and Tux's: you have to go DMG or Tank; not both.

I've been training an Amarr account since the release of the new bloodlines, and am really looking forward to a massive damage turret monster!

Thats just me though.
