Navy Dominix ftw.

One thing that could work.

+additional drones on dedicated drone boats and perhaps reduce the bandwidth available on non-dedicated ships.

+1 to drone overhaul.

(Oh and I think drone damage mods should go in highslots, drone ships have many to spare)

Why there is no T2 drone related modules?

Related, could the Eos please, for GODS SAKE, trade in the 5% hybrid damage bonus for the 10% damage bonus of the Myrmidon it's supposed to be the T2 varient of.

I realize its bandwidth was nerfed to make it more in line with the other CS (why they needed to nerfbat the command links i'll never know) but it went from being arguably the best Fleet Command Ship to the hands down WORST.

Drones deserve some love in their little metal hearts.

Some drone mods worth fitting would be really nice. ATM the only real faction drone equipment are intergrated/augmented drones which aren't worth anywhere near their price tag, 90mil for a set of five lights is beyond stupid and when you factor in how frequently drones die is there any reason why you would want them?

IMO sentient drones spawns should either drop a set of already assembled intergrated/augmented drones or considerably reduce the materials required to make them. Of course even if these changes were implemented, would they really worth buying over T2?

Drone lovers need some CCP love, I'll support this. Hey any chance of throwing out some ORE heavy mining drones too?

Cool

yes please, all of them

especialy a rogue drone dominix (I love the infested Dominix model)

anyway my dream is a sentry drone bonused ship :-)

also the drone bays on drone ships could be enahnced so that each has at least 3xbandwidth capacity ...

It's fun to play puzzles with modules on most ships. But on a drone ship there are really none that are REALLY fun.

As already mentioned, I'd like to see some other high slot modules that would affect drone performance, especially for Marauder use. Perhaps something akin to warfare links? Useable on Marauders but giving a benefit to all drones in the fleet?

I hate drones. I forget them all the time in the belts and at gates. They don't follow orders. They get shot by NPC/PC alike. It's just a constant loss of ISK. I tend to leave my drone bay empty lately Laughing

Anyways, there is a faction drone ship. It's called Vexor Navy Issue. But taking a closer look at the Gila, it might be worth reviewing it's role. Can you say Eagle/Moa ? Cool

drones being able to be resynchronised due to loss of connection was discussed with CCP when the CSM met in Iceland. The Tl;DR (which were in the summary minutes posted, go read them) was: "a way to reconnect to drones after disconnect will be looked at, but various options need to be tested and analysed before anything can be implemented."

well some long time ago, I found some abandoned drones at a station. I tried to scoop them to sell (yay t2 drones) but got a message that I cannot do that since the drones are still attached to the owner. but the pilot was not in system !!!

so it was 1/2 ass implemented alreay in the past ...

Drone damage modules should be in high-slots imo, or it would be too easy to superpower a ship.

I definantly think drones need some work, starting probably with webifier drones. As they currently as not worth using as they are incapable catching up to many ships.

The addition of a light webifier drones with a -5% speed effect and a speed of something like 4000-5000 m/s and a medium webifier with a -10% speed effect and a speed of 2000-2500 m/s would be a good start. As the current heavy drones are to slow to catch MWD ship. 5 lights would reduce the targets speed by 22.6% and 5 mediums by 41% as compared 5 heavies current reduction of 67.2%

I do not believe this would imbalance the game though it is possible that the speed reductions effects may have to be decreased.

I dont even use drones, And i agree they should be buffed/ made more central of a weapon system.

The "unfocused" aka I just shoved 5 drones in my ship for the lil extra. Should keep their current ability to use and employ drones. But we need to add that other level, Where a ship is centered around drones as the primary method of dps instead of a "boost" like 99% of all ships use it now.
