Im an alpha and I pulled out my Thorax to hit a DeD 4of10 site. And all the drones I had were killed in 5 mins.
I was working on the battle ships with my guns and and my drones were keeping the frigs off me at a short rang of 10k. I was keeping the battleship at 20k. And every time I looked I was missing 3 or 4 drones. Went through 17 drones.
