Alrighty.

I just killed Cormack Vaaja and didn't get any officer modules; the only thing in the wreck with his name on it was his tag. I'd heard that officers are always supposed to drop at least one module with their name on it and that it was petitionable if they didn't, but I figured I'd post here to confirm so as not to waste the GMs time if it's wrong.

So...petitionable?

P.S. Annoyingly enough, out of the two times I've ever seen and killed Cormack, he never dropped a single officer mod (last time was back in 2005 or so).

it was same deal before the patch, if you killed an officer sometimes it would only drop faction

I distinctly remember a dev post or maybe a patch note about dropping at least 1 item (it might have been on intended things to do), but can't realy place it. Confused
As you see, the rest don't realy know and are just jealous you got the spawn and they didn't Razz

Certainly not petitionable, but it may be worth filing a bug report. You'll at least find out if zero specific officer mods (other than the tag) is a bug or feature.

Sorry to hear that Wrayeth. Had a corpmate who recently had the same tag-only drop Sad

I was fortunate enough to bag Setele Schellan recently. The following nice items dropped:

Setele Schellan's Tag
Vindicator blueprint
Setele's modified power diagnostic system
Setele's modified 350mm railgun
Assorted Shadow Serp gear

Guess the odds generator was smiling on me that day Smile

I also got no Officer mods from a recent spawn, 7/8 DB mods though. Can't complain I guess, still probs 500m worth of stuff.

I've had 5 angel officers myself and helped with a few more and there were always officer mods in the cans (was before wrecks).

I think I usually got 3 officer mods from one officer. I somehow don't believe that zero officer mods are supposed to happen. ( Except the number of officer spawns have been increased in the meantime and the loot been adjusted for that. )
Think I'd bug-report it and petition.

To be honest if faction spawns can do the tags and ammo trick then it's within reason that officers can do the same and only drop tags and faction gear or nothing of any value at all.

It's only petitionable if the officer didn't drop ANY officer item (and that, sadly, includes the tags). So if you get an officer you should hope that you either get only t1 crap and no tag (so you can petition) or that the officer actually drops something nice.

As I said countless times before, I can "half live" with it if faction rats don't always drop faction gear (i don't count the tag as faction gear) but if i ever got an officer and then only got a heap of DG crap and a tag i think i'd really start smashing things up.

CCP should look into this and make sure that an officer ALWAYS drops at least 1x tag and 1x officer item. It sooooo unlikely to ever get one of those damn spawns so i think they should at least give you something nice (and not just a few worthless passive hardners either).

If CCP stealth-nerfed faction and officer spawns then I personally would greatly appreciate two things:
a) them to tell us about this change and
b) for CCP to change the system so there are simply less officers and not the same amount of officers but half of them don't drop anything.

Nothing is as frustrating as being lucky enough to get an officer and then to be unlucky enough to only loot crap.

Edit:
And to clarify: i'm not the person that igetshotalot is refering to in his post further up the page... I (unfortunatly) never even saw an officer spawn before so i'm not writing this message because i personally feel hard done by... more because i find this kind of "feature" close to torture! Crying or Very sad
In my nightmares i always get officers but they only drop miner I! Wink

I agree COMPLETELY!!!!

My last 2 faction spawns gave me tags n ammo these are higher level bs faction spwns if I can maybe live with that as frustrating as it is but an OFFICER spwn giving a tag and some crap no thats wrong. Considering how rare they are.

Bug report it, was told to do that by a Dev on IRC when i asked about it once.

Can't remember the name now though and to lazy to search the logs.

certainly not petitionable,
and also laughable that you even thought this.

The tag is supposed to drop every time i think and that is petitionable. But the rest is not.

I'm posting here because....well....officer spawns were mentioned and I am past due for another officer spawnLaughing

Lets see, 7 officer spawns and every single one dropped at least one officer mod. Granted, some have been crappy (Raysere's Modified Reaction Control anyone lol), but along with the officer mod(s) there was a ****load of faction mods as well.

I feel your pain though not having any officer mods dropping. Officers are rare indeed and they should at least have ONE mod drop (ya ya, me talking about officer spawns being rare is like Paris Hilton mumbling she doesn't do coke while snorting a line on a mirror Laughing.
