"Rogue Swarm" Event? Whats this?

Anyone who has run the SOE Epic arc has plenty of experience with level 1 rogue drones and, if you read the walls of text, a good understanding of the lore surrounding them. Expect the event drones to be a lot tougher.

There are also drone ratting anomalies in most systems you can practice on. Highsec anomalies will have Drone Cluster, Collection, Assembly and Gathering in increasing order of difficulty.

I do not expect this event to use new AI - CCP still has a lot of work to do to get that dialed in before it is released to the general public!

Hints like plentiful rewards and find your fortune among the wreckage suggest this may not be a single loot drop like recent events but spread out among the wrecks - which will make it more difficult for hijackers to scoop your loot. Might be a good idea to fit a tractor beam!

These events are intended to encourage player interaction and past experience suggests there will be a lot of tears from people who do all the work only to have someone else steal the prize.

I wish, but I doubt it very much. Likely it will be the BPCs for current faction drones that can only be had from BPCs dropped as loot.

Hope the Rogue Drones make some t-shirts, baseball caps and berets to drop. Other bad guy brands (Blood Raiders, Guristas) always get all of the attention.

They are going to drop little robots that clean up the floor in the captains quarters.

Bring back DEEEEP Space!

Maybe some implants that will make you look more like a rogue drone? That would be magnificent to have 8 pairs of eyes and some additional limbs.

I don't see the drone event when I go here: http://updates.eveonline.com/

I see the drone event I go here: http://updates.eveonline.com/date/2017-06-13/

The link http://updates.eveonline.com appears to be bugged and not showing the mini skill injector, drone event and alliance tournament updates for me.

Works fine for me. The injectors were last update so listed in the frame before the one about the drones and the vexor, ishtar and sin redesigns.

You know you can scroll down?

Tbh I'd expect the new AI. Blood Raider is cool and gg but it's 1 site every couple days and people might not even run those after the bpc ninja loot butthurt. It provides large scale op data only. Something that can e run solo or in small group, thousands of times daily would provide intel on small gang and how AI should respond to that.

Yes, I know I can scroll down. And it still doesn't showed up when I scrolled down.

Yes I cleared my browser history, restarted my browser, and rebooted my computer several times since. Still doesn't work.

I think it's just bugged for some browser/computer set up.

Also not showing for me, unless I use the direct link. Going to updates just shows a slide for the May release, then one for Summer talking about NPE, Exo Planets, and T3C Rebalance, then straight on to Oct's release slide...June's missing. It's even missing July events I noticed.

The only other browser I have is Edge and it has the same thing, btw. Maybe it's not a browser problem?

Depends on drone size. My little stash of drone AI cores says otherwise.

Some drone battleships drone Elite Drone AI.

In this particular event, drones will drop cerebral accelerators and PLEX. Big smile

We dont know yet. Maybe will be true because of unintentional "slip of the finger" when writing the code.

CCP are usually pretty bad at communicating upcoming in-game events, I seem to never know they are on till they are actually running.

Are there any considerations about the fit for the farm?
