Hello Pilots! Big smile

Next week, with the launch of EVE Online: Retribution, comes an interesting set of changes to the Drone Regions. These include new modules, new drone "Officer" NPCs and balances to rogue drone salvage.

CCP FoxFour is here to explain them all in his latest Dev Blog, which you can read here!

Enjoy! Cool

Good idea but really rubbish names for the officer mods... can't we just give them proper names and say they were named after the first person to encounter them or something? :)

Good stuff! I guess this won't change the nearly useless drone DED complex sites more than maybe a bit sec status and some % more salvage? Would be nice with drone faction modules as well to buff these sites. As or right now they simply aren't worth the time.

Why do rats give sec status gains outside empire space? There's no CONCORD there, just like in wormholes.

What about the drops in Drone complex sites?
AFAIK they are not worth while compare to faction DED sites.

I didn't know drones wore rouge.

Awesome devlog.. I can't help empathising with these drones; they seem to have such similar outlooks on life to myself.

Because those rats are still enemies of the empire factions.

ooh la la the french give a sec status when we cause them mortal harm?

"Oh, also, Rouge Drones now give a sec status gain when you kill them."

You're not denied sec status gains from sleeper drones because they're in 0.0. You're denied them because CONCORD has no reason to give you sec status from killing them, since they stay in their wormholes and aren't a threat to the empires. Pirates and rogue drones on the other hand are, so bounties and sec status gains are justified on kills.

See we just need sleeper incursions to keep everyone on their toes Lol

Great things to look forward too, but one thing comes to mind:

What is the drone control unit adding? I assume easier fitting, but other than that? +2 drones per module fitted?

CCP FoxFour I have a question!

Any plan on introducing lower-end faction versions of these modules to the Rogue Drone sites in highsec like Rogue Drone Asteroid Infestation DED 3/10, or the unnamed combat sites such as Desolate Site and Chemical Yard?
