How are you getting the racial drone specialization bonus to apply to faction sentries?

good for you..you now see a benefit to t2, they are cheaper. Now go do pvp, lose handfuls of sentries per month to various reasons and work out isk saved.


Not sure if serious or trolling...but either way in the future remember one thing. CCP did not reimburse minmatar for capital launcher skills when nag went full guns on the high slots. If weapon completely deprecated and no love....think how other things will go.

welcome to faction....it doesn't get the full bene's of t2. have to give t2 its special abilities to make the pita of mastering them desirable. Enter the many faction guns are meh threads. They offer good performance at lower entry points. That is what faction offers. Want the full tour, t2 is the path that must be followed.

Now we could argue cost and such....that is heavily player based. Mixed with out of dated item requirements that I would fully agree need to be changed. Courtesy of empire plex drops you get ds level gear cheap as hell killing any real need for most faction tank mods imo as an example. And they can't drop price to compete. But that tangent is for another thread perhaps.

CCP has stated their intention of making faction weapons systems more desirable for seasoned players, putting them on par with T2 weapons and giving them different flavors and uses for more variety in gameplay.

If I'm not mistaken the recent changes to drones took that into account, and they made faction drones on par with T2 drones, with slight variations.

Expect the same with turrets and launchers when the module tiericide starts.

Are you a forum alt? Have you ever wondered why your experience on the forums is always so frustrating and unrewarding? This may help.

T2 drones still retain a 2-10% damage advantage, while faction drones have significantly more EHP and slightly better tracking.

Derp. That's right, Sentries don't have integrated and augmented versions (Yet? Does anyone know of any intention to add them?) and augmented drones are the ones that match T2's and have different damage type profiles.

A rant is a post that is often filled with angry and counterproductive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community and is helpful in development of the game and community. Rants are disruptive, and incite flaming and trolling.
