  • Can we please remove or nerf drone aggro. in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Sentry drones are useful at 60km. Doesn't mean combat drones need to be for ratting.

    Battleship blasters are doing less than half damage at 20km with antimatter. Their fall off is at 16km ish. To put that into context, a vindicator's blasters do less damage than a domi with gardes/orgres at that range (and the domi has better tracking too)

    So when you say a drones operational range is worse than blasters you're pushing it. Now go back to how the op is using a proteus with a fall off at around 13km ish if he was using a blaster subsystem. Blasters just dont compare to drones in useful range, not even against combat drones getting shot a lot. Then add the other advantages of using drones...

    Where you say drones didn't get compensated, they did, they got a big speed buff.

  • Can we please remove or nerf drone aggro. in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Blasters goto 20km? Nice hax...

    Drone control range goes to 60km. That doesn't mean you should be able to send combat drone that far without them getting shot at. Why would it?

    Doesn't matter what you like or don't like. Eve by its very nature does not give you everything you want. It gives you meaningful choices. Use the right tool for the job. I.e use sentries for targets beyond 20km, or fit for drone speed, or use some e-war, or use another weapon system all together.

    Op should do a video using blasters at 20km. I'm sure they'll out perform drones no problem. Lol.

  • Cal/Min pirate ships, and a proposed ship design philosophy in EVE Technology and Research Center

    you aren't the first to cotton onto the lack of cal/min pirates, but what are they going to be like playstyle wise?

    Rather than sho-horning a playstyle onto something you think is missing (but doesn't need to exist), think of ships that can be interesting and unique in how they work (playstyle) and then make them cal/min.

    I'm having issues as well with drone agro. I'm using a Rattlesnake, passive shield regen fit. I always need to thin out the NPC's a lot before I can even attempt to let my drones loose, because if I don't I lose them within seconds, and when trying to prevent that the drones barely get one shot off, if any, on a target before I need to recall them with a 50/50 chance of losing drones on the way back.



    In a rattler you have sentries and super tanked heavies that needn't go further than 20km. What in the hell are you doing? Honestly, what do you mean by 'let my drones loose'?

    OKay so that thread got locked..


    To answer your question Daichi Yamato this topic will keep going back and forth until CCP decided what they are going to do. I have been in EVE since the beginning so you know, the VERY beginning...... and it's a shame. really. This topic will go back and forth. But yes if requested by CCP I can show over 10 paid accounts from our corp alone to them because of this very problem. And I am sure there are countless more. Hunting is not when you log in at down time and keep your character on until the next downtime,,,,, and just leave for the day no matter how you try to spin it. You can define it how you will, I define it as I will.


    A whole ten? From the very beginning of the game? Well **** me thats why subs must be down.

    So why did these guys quit the entire game rather than move to hi-sec where they can make money without afk cloakers? Did they feel entitled to the best possible rewards the game had to offer but with none of the risk? Seems a bit silly.

  • Can we please remove or nerf drone aggro. in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Have people forgotten that the op is using a proteus? He can get as close as he wants and tank just fine.

  • Please give us a "restart extractors" from the Planet list in EVE Technology and Research Center

    This'd be nice.

  • Solution to AFK Cloakers? in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Johnny, if a cloaker is sitting around waiting for the moment to strike, he must be at his keyboard. When he's afk, the perfect moment to strike may come and go a hundred times...afk cloakers do not gather intel, or gain anything, other than perhaps the complacency of their enemies.

  • Solution to AFK Cloakers? in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Greylord, it's on the wikipedia page! *facepalm*

    I'm not changing the definition, CCP are. The purpose of afk-cloaking is to hunt players. And which countless people are quitting because of it? Can you back up that 'FACT'? Scaring people in eve is not griefing lol, show me where it says using scare tactics and misinformation in eve is griefing or in anyway not allowed...

    Again, what other games do is irrelevant. How long have you played eve? Has no one yet said to you:

    You don't know what griefing really is. Active or not active is irrelevant. Just drop it already.




    Let me define griefing for you just so you have it, "A griefer is a player in a multiplayer video game who deliberately irritates and angers other players within the game, often using aspects of the game in unintended ways..:

    So you are telling me the CCP intended for people to log on to their computers just after downtime and just leave a character logged in all day without being by their keyboard...really? Really? Please spare me the humor.


    VERY VERY Relevant by the way..maybe not to you but many others yes.


    That's not griefing in eve dumb ass.

    In the VERY ARTICLE you're quoting it says:

    Quote:
    Space sims like Eve Online and Elite: Dangerous have incorporated activities typically considered griefing as part of the gameplay mechanism.


    And its funny you've left 'active' and 'not active' out this time Lol. In eve players are free to use mechanics in ways they were not intended to be used. If ccp deem it detrimental to the game it becomes an exploit. If they dont, it doesn't and it becomes normal gameplay. What you, or anyone else other than ccp,think is griefing is irrelevant.

    By that definition ganking, wardeccing and even using warp stabs in fw would be considered griefing.

    Just another carebear that doesn't know his arse from his elbow.

    Man, I love it when you overdose on the hyperbole.

    Having a reliable tool does not mean it's a one shot solution that requires no further action or sacrifice.


    Reliable means it works all the time. Otherwise it is the definition of unreliable. So it's not going to happen.

    Your experience with drones isn't universal. When i pull drones in and redeploy them npc's don't automatically go for the same drone, or even go for any drones after being pulled in.

  • Solution to AFK Cloakers? in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Is dishonest. You're not bothered about the empty chair, no one is. You're just using that as a thin disguise because you're actually very terrified of the chair being occupied.

  • Solution to AFK Cloakers? in EVE Technology and Research Center

    The hypocrisy in that post. I don't cloaky camp. I don't gank either but see what i think about that. I don't wardec either and see how i feel about that...

    And hundreds of people fall into the category of 'lone renter who does not pvp and feel the game should change so they can print isk risk free'. Doesn't mean they should get it.

  • Proposal - Steal and unanchor offline towers and mods in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Wardec them.

    They're going to be deleted in the near future anyways.

  • Solution to AFK Cloakers? in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I don't think he pvp's. Like at all. I'm guessing he falls into the group that surrendermonkey was hinting at before. Plays by himself as a renter or something like that. Same with scialt and li Soikutsu.

    I imagine thats why standing up to cloakers is unrealistic. No experience, no allies, no communication with the rest of their block. Just trying to 'get on with the game'.

    But playing in the most hardcore pvp area of an already hardcore pvp centric game was a poor choice.

  • Solution to AFK Cloakers? in EVE Technology and Research Center

    And yet people do undock. And people do live with that. And they play with standby fleets. The thing is, null is not for everyone. Definitely not for you it seems (not for me either). Meta gaming and spies and working together are the bread and butter of null. Null comes with big rewards for big playstyles. People who just want to 'get on with the game' by themselves will be able to do so in hi-sec, and even low.

    It's NOT griefing. You just have the wrong idea of what griefing is. Honestly you don't even seem to get the game. Why are you even here?

  • Collectibles For FW Rank Rewards in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Still think some form of uniforms from lp stores would be awesome. Different ones depending on rank? Would be pretty cool.

  • Noctis and salvage drones upgrade in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Please don't make the noctis drone bay for salvage drones exclusively. Ecm drones are useful as well.
    And making unique drone ai for a ship? Sounds like a pita for something thats gimmicky.

    Speed bonus per level wouldn't be bad idea though.

  • Can we please remove or nerf drone aggro. in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Done 10/10's in a triple repped domi.

    If you're having that much trouble, switch the weapon system. And when no one does 10/10's with drones ccp may think 'hmmm something may be up here'. But honestly, its likely more ded sites are run with drones than any other weapon system because they are that good.
