CCP, i think you may have screwed the pooch on this one. The botting in the drone regions was terribad, having massive effects on the mining profession, making ships crazy cheap and so on, and so needed to be done. I'm not speaking out against that. But fast forward a few weeks, and now we're seeing highsec missioning bots everywhere. If you thought incursions were bad for inflation, wait till you see how much isk is being generated by these smeggers. I like pulling numbers (among other things) outa my arse, so i reckon double the isk will be generated from bots compared to incursions.

It's all part of a plan, that is unfolding as expected.

The null sec'ers will be braying ever more loudly for a nerf to L4 missions, and naturally Soundwave (who did the 2007 goon presentation at Fanfest) , will quickly agree that "for the good of the economy, we must reduce L4 income".

He already stated a 10% hit to missions was being examined (Ten Ton Hammer interview), and that was BEFORE the hit to any bots that operated in drone space.

My my, that's pretty convincing.

I better try to move away from dependence on L4 running.

Nerfing drone drops was pure tokenism. They did it because they were grabbing at straws. If they want to cure inflation, they'd increase production to match the ISK in circulation, not nerf it. Now computer weenies have proof those other buildings at the university were teaching something, too.

The right to free speech doesn't automatically carry with it the right to be taken seriously.

Production will only go up if there is the demand. The droneland minerals also did not cause any inflation.
