Real simply put it needs done. The only other varient on the Domi is the Black ops ships which is a complete fail in pvp and in actual purpose.
Please make a Faction Domi.
Thanks.

We have faction ships for every flavor with bonuses of a sick'ning +100% to damage in some cases but other then the guardian vexor (so rare its current auction value is 17 BILLION isk) or the navy vexor that lacks the mid slots needed to mount any of the drone modules and still fit pvp gear.
PLEASE give us a faction/navy/rogue drone/fed customs ship that specializes in drone combat.
Come on... you have 100% bonus on MANY gun ships yet very few drone specialty ships much less ones with a larger then 10% bonus.
At least let us know the design considerations hindering you.
Please.

The ships with a 100% damage bonus have half the turrets they otherwise would. It's not a bonus, it's compression. In the case of the Sansha's ships, it's actually a penalty, since the lose the inherent bonus that faction ships normally get for it, plus they lost a huge number of low slots in the switchover. On the other hand, 10% to drone damage is the single biggest actual bonus to any weapon type's DPS on any subcapital ship. Drones have a lower base DPS than most weapon systems, and there are fewer ways to boost them, but in terms of bonus size there's nothing to complain about. And it's not like there's a shortage of drone ships - Gallente gets an AF, a cruiser, a faction cruiser, a HAC, a battlecruiser, a command ship, a battleship, a black ops ship, and a dreadnought with real drone bonuses, plus some other crap with nominal drone bonuses(Imicus, Helios, etc.). They're not all as good as they used to be, but they're plentiful and effective. I see no need to add a faction Domi to address this "hole". Perhaps as part of a set of new faction ships, but not as a standalone addition.

How can you say this when there are HOW MANY faction ships for every other weapons system and only one for drones... a navy cruiser no less when most the others are bs for the other systems?
I am gunna bet you arent a droner....
But I cant blame you a bit. I see no need for things I have no interest in either.

I'm a Gallente pilot with around 2.5M SP in drones. Not as many as you, admittedly, but I still fly Domis and Ishtars, and I'm still ****ed at the Myrm nerf(75 m3 bandwidth? Evil or Very Mad).

The point I was raising is that faction ships aren't the be all and end all of Eve. There's a lot of Gallente drone boats out there, including at least one at every ship class but Destroyers, and one of them is even faction. You have a good deal of options here, you don't need a bonus faction ship that nobody else gets in order to get to fly with drones.

Faction ships in general need an over haul and are supposed to be geting it, but i'd say gallente have got the best of it. Good cruiser and the mega is a well used ship, Caldari got the CNR of course and cruiser is ok, Amarr got a worthless cruiser unless to want a bait ship and the bs is no better than the normal flavour no idea on the minmatar but think the bs is ok from what mate said.

We need our next step.

Match up a raven and a golem to do missions and the golem wins easily. Infact the CNR is the only one who might challenge the golem. The jury is still out on that one.

Yet the Dominix doesn't have that next step...

It's like as if the game no longer allowed CNRs and Golems to do missions. There would be a huge uproar against that... but somehow that's alright for the tier 1 battleship to go without the next step.

We really need something.

Dominix Navy Issue
Rogue Drones Dominix
Mini-carrier

any of the above is reasonable.

it needs to be either black, like the navy mega, or using the rogue drone domi hull.

More then likely, like most issues involving drones and their place as a major weapons system, it will be colored "ignored" or perhaps a bright "put off and forgotten".

Can I have mine in lime green with pulsating neon lights? Embarassed
Or gallente navy black with pulsating red eyes. Twisted Evil

But seriouslly, will drones ever become a primary weapons system for Gallente or not?

The Gallente Marauder is the Kronos, and while its a damn fine ship, its short on a few areas. There will be no equal to the Golem, except maybe the Paladin which has pretty sweet reach, no reload, and other advantages. Anyway, I'm in favor of the Rogue drone domi... those things look plain neat. Problem becomes bonuses... standard would be 10% per level (only the Moros gets higher with 50%/level) but it should have something unique, like using nanite repair paste, repper bonus (that'd be evil!), or something else wacky.

Btw, Nightmare (Sansha BS) was changed because it uses lasers and shield tanking. Its a BEAST of a ship, so dont say its awful (if you hate it, give me yours!).

Reasounding yes on a Rogue Drone Dominix and also faction battleships for the other neglected side factions, finally giving a faction ship to every BS hull (Phoon and all tier3s don't have one either).
