They’re all in dead last place when it comes to range, tracking, speed, and survivability.
They do the most damage, but it’s only 6.6% more than what the Caldari drones do. Said Caldari drones having double the eHP value of their Gallente equivalents while also having more range, better accuracy, and being faster.
What am I missing? Why are Gallente drones built out of rusty tin cans? Someone please enlighten me.
Because a while ago CCP finally realised that “always bring Gallente drones” was a bit terrible and they rebalanced them.
If that were an implant you’d pay billions for it. And that is then how it’s balanced because, being Gallente, they DO have the highest damage but it’s not a simple and clear win all the time every time.
I’ve been suggesting new players to use Caldari drones for most situations for a while now, if only because they are easier to use due to high shield giving players more time to realise they got aggro and pull them in, while the majority of their HP also regens on its own. Almost every time that gets backlash from people who are clueless or still living in the pre-rebalanced past.
Everything in the game is built out of rusty tin cans. Did you see the ships? One thorn and they explode like party baloons. Hundreds of years in the future but the empires haven’t figured out how to work with titanium. The drones must be made out of Coca-Cola cans.
I assume most of the larger ships that have some drone space are intended to field a minor Light Drone defensive screen agaisnt Frigates. Otherwise these smaller targets would rush in past their guns with impunity. Also Salvage Drones.
