The prepatch topic has been locked will try here..
Can somebody give me a more clear answer to this (okay could test after the patch but still):
"New programming has been added to drones. They will no longer attempt to become self-aware and will not pick random targets on their own."
Does this mean drones wont attack anything on their own and in case primary (issued) target destroyed will they idle?
Does this mean if I'm attacked and loose a lock (jammed) they won't fire back?
CCP fixed Drone A.I. !
Thats what i thought as i read the patch notes. but they became even more stupid. Before patch they attacked different targets but one klick on "engage" made them run to your target and blow it up. But now they attack your target for like a minute and after that they stop shooting . Hell i use them to kill frigs in missions but after some seconds they go for battleships, but not all at the same BS, each drone attacks a different ship
why dont they kill the myrmidon and give gallente a Battlecruiser with Drone-A.I.-bonus ? why do drones get nerfed with every patch?
and when will they fix missions, where drones get full stage aggroed?
how should i kill the small frigs in Worlds Collide 4 in my megathron without drones?
as soon as i launch em they get shot and whole stage starts shooting at me.
fit 4 webbers and hope rails will hit em ?
fit assault missiles instead of cruise???
use freaky blasters for missions with paperthin tank ?
maybe they should build a missile-bs for gallente, just like the rokh for caldari, so gallente get caldari weapons and can do missions the easy way too . well nobody needs that blasterhyperion anyway...but a ship that can do missions without stupid drones .
why dont they nerf missiles, so each missile attacks another enemy ?
we dont need lower damage with t2 ammo, we need to get the annoying things fixed first.
we dont need new bs, when we get blown up by a full stage of serpentis just because we launched our "primary" weapon .
btw. attacking someone in low sec with an ishkur, launching your drones and watching them how they attack NPC-rats instead of your primary target...
