I'm serious. Except for the part of being a jerk about it.
I tought they were going out on Inferno expansion. I remember seeing some concept art along with the new Stealth Bombers hull. Will they come out or it was just some stuff for testing reactions and such?

I'm interested as to why they shelved the idea for now - it's just salvaging, after all.

They did just postpone the release of those. They are very likely still on table.

Something shiny flew into the office and all work has been stopped while they look at it for a week or so. Then they'll go on a massive summer vacation.

Maybe winter. Incredibly unlikely

some people still have the salvaging drone skill book. Im sure they'll be out at some point.....

..... but if/when they do come out, i hope the noctis gets a drone bay for them.

Will these counter the recent nerf to salvaging/looting?

Yes I do mean the Unified Inventory System...

They will probably suck.

A lot.

Because CCP can't make them too good, or they'll make the Noctis obsolete.

Space. It seems to go on and on forever. But then you get to the end and a gorilla starts throwing barrels at you.

iirc the drones only salavage and leave the loot floating around in cans, so all in all i'm less than interested.

edit: major drone region buff though, still no deadspace mods but at least you can farm without a noctis.

I should buy an Ishtar.

Or they could add a drone bay to the Noctics, so we can drop more salvagers for tractors? Hmm...

it could end up being a pain in the a$s, so unless there passive, & seek out wrecks randomly, or the nearest, manually sending 1 drone to 1 wreck, as well as managing wrecks to pull in & salvage others, i can see it getting quite messy.

Knowing our lock these drones will be Heavy Salvage drones and be slow, or have to actively target and set to salvage. Either way since we have been demanding them since the introduction of salvage I expect CCP to make it useless for us, so we can't make any decent money pasively.

Just what Eve needs... Not only can level 4s be done AFK you'll be able to salvage them AFK as well. Exciting!

They'd need tractor drones to make the Noctis obsolete.
