Some pvp drone ship’s combined drone ehp is higher than the ship ehp, so often shooting them makes no sense.
Let’s Look at the gila:
10x Caldari Navy Vespa
6200 Shield with avg of 27.5% resi so 7905 ehp per drone in only shield nvm armor and hull x 10 is 80k ehp, that’s more than the gila…Nvm that you can pull the drone back into the ship while it regen’s shields and you pull out a fresh drone will full shield.
Maybe the solution is to increase drone signature and lower drone ehp so that shooting drones is always more efficient than shooting the ship. I find that even with 500 tracking on small guns small drones often only get glancing blow’s becuase of their small signiture and high orbit speed’s.
