Indirect nerf to drones: anti-drone batteries

One way to 'nerf' drones would be for CCP to introduce anti-drone(AD) batteries. I'm thinking along the lines of present day AA guns/missiles used to combat enemy aircraft. adjust ships to include these batteries in fits without sacrificing too much elsewise and maybe allow the AD batteries to work automatically--like drones. The canon explanation would be something like: these batteries would have little to no affect on enemy frigates or heavier ships due to not being included in the capsuleer's control and totally run on AI to allow the pilot to focus on other things in combat.

Rough idea but it would be something to indirectly tweak drone capabilities.

Good hunting,

Xavi

This is an obvious question, but why do you feel drones need to be nerfed?

my one thing about eve compared to other space games is the lack of weapons

you only get to have up to 8 main weapons and your only compliment for others is a handful of drones.

other space games you have your main weapons followed by additional smaller systems

Or just use light missiles for drones. Not sure what to do about the bombs though.
