So you know how you can set your drones to guard or assist other players in your fleet? Wouldn't it be cool if you could set them to "guard squad"?

If everyone in your squad set their drones this way, all of the drones in that squad would act as one when attacking aggressors to anyone in your squad.....

Because drone assist isn't strong enough as it is?

How about you target who is shooting at your fleetmate and tell your drones to attack him? Is it that hard?

What if you could stay docked and drones would just undock on their own, fly 10j out and kill a target that another person found through the locator agents?

Do you think that would be useful/cool?

It makes sense cos drones.

So that your barges can gank the ebil gankers and you no longer have to be bothered with sitting at a screen when mining?

No!
