@CCP
Congratz for introducing these little babies. I hope you can improve the AI even more and make them as flexible as possible in the way they react to players.

Why?

Make sleepers attack sov structures.
Deploy their own SBU, and anchor their own TCU!

Actually found it on reddit but as I hate bots I just had to laugh and thought it would be worth mentioning it here.

Wondering if that's an amusing side effect or the intended purpose. Funny either way Lol

As amusing as this particular case of schadenfreude is, in an AI arms race between game devs and bot writers, the game devs tend to lose. I imagine the people who use bots will be slightly inconvenienced for a very short period and then be back to their usual business.

But during that short intermission, they can go ahead and ban anyone that spends 60 minutes blasting away at a rat and doing no damage with a clear conscience.

If the Circadians end up being anything other than a short term event, you'll see specific CSM members complaining loudly about them in the near future.

Why? Well.... Cool

I would love to see sleepers do more than just combat.

Maybe make them like the gremlins. Like you try to use a gate and end up in the wrong system because the sleepers have been messing around with it.


Let them turn the game into Calvinball. The min-maxers will cry an ocean.

Ive thought the same thing. Ive always been nervous jumping through a gate that being scanned by a Seeker. Would be funny as hell to have a fleet scattered across the constellation if they jumped through gate while a seeker was scanning it.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Seekers that scan your cargo and take interest in it, if it's valuable to them (whatever criteria that would be - heck they might be looking for walnuts for all we know).

Some will argue that we have gankers for that. Cool

Walnuts. Love it.

There needs to be a legitimate reason we cant have them in POCOs.

No one seems to like my 'evolved mutant walnut war' theories, so Sleepers might as well be the reason we cant have nice things.. like Kourabiedes in New Eden..

Seekers at the gates tearing at the code. Better get rid of the buggers before I jump.

I'd love for sleepers to follow you through gates and camp you in stations.

Maybe we can get the sleepers into the CQ and they can figure out how to open those blasted doors.

BTW there was an Eve Trailer where they were fighting in a station and there was a very brief glimpse of a floating drone thing that looks like it has sleeperish features. Upper left of the screen at 2:53.

Note also from that trailer the reference to "Heretics" and the recent Jovian BS sightings and some "heretic soldier" (linked from here).

Those drones are most likely assets originally intended to be Dust NPCs. I have seen sketches of them in Fanfest presentations in the past.
