Part of the issue is that while Amarr were granted access to Drones as their second weapon system the only objectively good drone boats available to Alphas for Amarr are the Dragoon and Arbitrator and both have the problem of split high slots. That is unless you count the Gnosis, but everyone can use the Gnosis.
Gallente have much better drone support via Tristan, Algos, and Vexor natively within their racial alpha options. Guess what? Those ships get to load up their high slots with relevant damage and use the drones!
Then we get into the fact that the Gallente cruisers alphas have access to can field full flights of mediums. Meanwhile over on the Amarran side of the fence... Augoror 4 lights or 2 mediums, Maller 3 lights, Omen 5 lights or 4 mediums.
Maybe the Amarr alphas should lose the top off some of the r5 or r4 advanced drone skills and instead get access to something more relevant to what they can actually use? Either some basic access to light missiles so both their drone boats can use their split highs, or perhaps a bone thrown their way in having some additional ranks in Advanced Weapon Upgrades available or something else that is more useful across most of their hulls.
