Seems that now you can not get your fighters to engage your own can even… this means that before you could get them to mwd back to your ship…

Right now there is no way to get them to come to your carrier like other drones when they mwd back... I wonder what the devs thought about this?

Can you not attack cans with your own drones now too?

(for those who do not know, fighters have been bugged and some drones for very long time, promise or solutions have been said, but none have been working thus far, before you could trick them by attacking your own can now you can not, with HP increase all other ships get to live longer esp with the extenders while pop your fighters (take them out far and pop them as they do not return to your ship with mwd)

what do you mean its in the patch notes? meaning that fighters will never mwd back to your ship? while other drones do? then i want them to be cut 50% in cost if that is a feature or boost there hp

that when they get near their targets they will turn off their mwd... this way they are less likely to miss, in other words they got boosted overall. Sorry if you have to wait a few seconds longer after your 200k armor carrier with it's more powerful drones finishes killing things...

I think he's talking about the bug with Fighters, where they never ever use their MWD to return to your ship when given a return command.

AFAIK, drones wont MWD back to your ship, either. And heartily annoying it is, too.

I say give drones and fighters a patch of their very own. Currently they're bug-tastic, and probably the only part of the game to remain pretty much static in their implementation since the early days of EVE.

duh!! its not the patch notes im talking about its the fact that they never use there mwd to go back and now telling them to engage a can if they do even, doesn’t work! thats why i said a nerf, because there is no way to get your fighters back in a timely manner

and i saw fighters staying around the carrier even though they were told to go to drone bay, this lasted for over 1 min, so things are very buggy

Drones did MWD back pre patch. Unless something has been broken they should still do.

fighters do not and they havent been fixed still funny cause they are very similar you would think and im sure they are the rules (code) apply the same for both just a few differences

And that is exactly the reason why the Fighter and MWD bug is so frustrating.

Originally by: Patch Notes
Drones can not be ordered or provoked into attacking ships or other drones owned by their controller.


What he was talking about is that the patch notes say that you can no longer get your drones to attack your stuff. This includes your jetcans. (Including the ones dropped by ships you killed.)

At least your drones or fighters will now never ever attack each other when they feel like it.

The Fighter MWD thing is actually in the Known Issues bit.

Same story with repper bots.

I was so happy when they managed to fix the return to bay issue a few months ago.

its a real pain as you cant fit any weapons in the high slots on a carrier so you have no way of popping your loot cans havent yet tried fighters on wrecks to see if they can pop them

its not about rating the point is a carrier couldnt kill cans or wrecks o_o regardless of the reason you are completely nerfed in that area... havent seen something like that in eve for a long time


a lot of you people are confusing the patch notes stating that they will use there mwd smarter meaning that they will not mwd in orbit and miss the target they will slow down before there range so they can hit... thats fine

but that has nothing to do with fighters not mwd back to drone bay like other drones have been able to... this has been broken and patched for regular drones, but fighters never seem to have gotten any priority at all to fix, and now with this new nerf swing devs did not see carriers at all, meaning a ship that has no guns but only drones
