The NPC pirate ships, generally called rats, will be getting a few upgrades to their... brains? CCP FoxFour has written a new dev blog about the plans to make our resident computer controlled entities just a little smarter.

It is available for your reading pleasure here.

Please let us know what you think of these upcoming upgrades in the comments section below.

A welcome change. This should close up loopholes used by AFK domis, and people doing FW missions with a speedtanking frig/bomber pair.

How is this going to affect the likes of Logistics ships in high end DED complexes? Are they going to get a lower target priority or are we going to have to roll even more people into the sites...

Other than that, all the NPC in the belts, missions, complex, navies, pirate faction, empire faction, and any others I can find will get the newer Level One AI.

Only AI, you won't make them stronger like those that use Level One AI atm (sleeper and incursion NPC) ???

Logistics ships do generate a lot of threat as far as the NPC are concerned and will probably switch to them pretty quick. As for exactly how this will change your strategies, well that we shall have to wait and see.

Hop on Duality and come to High Sec. I believe there is a feast happening right now there.

You're more than welcome. If possible we would love to get some feedback from people testing this on the test server. While we are working fast to make changes and we are testing this stuff internally there is only so much testing we can do. That and you guys always find ways to break our ****. :/

A sea of tears over this... you should have seen what else we wanted the NPC to do. Pirate
