CCP should just leave the drone regions as is and get rid of miners, drones are a valid source of minerals until its nerfed (just saying). Drone regions have the advantage of having 1 guy who can do two things: Gun mine and fleet battles with the same skill set in weapons. Miners...farm dirt and those skills are useless in a fleet battle unless you are using hulks as as cannon fodder + no one really wants to lookout for those guys.

So, we are in agreement then
- Leave Drone Regions as is
- Get rid of miners, asteroids, grav sites, and mining missions
- Seed more drone equilivent mineral poop to the rest of EVE
- PROBLEM SOLVED! Now you only need turret / missile and ship / navigation skills so everyone can get back to doing the one basic thing in EVE - blowing **** up without having to keep an eye on Joe Dirt Roll the loser slobbering on space rocks who needs protection like a kitten needs its mother (<-- Pfft! who wants to get stuck with that ****** job?!?!?! Ugh).

Betcha they plan to improve/revamp mining to pick up the slack after they remove the alloys .. probably wont be in place for a few years though Smile

Would be cool if they added some supplemental drops to help make living in what was previously some of the most valuable space in Eve a bit more enticing .. such as BPC's for some of the drone hulls (Drone Faction Domi's for everyone!). CCP has mentioned they want to spam new ships when they get around to balancing all the existing ones after all.

OMG being able to have the Drone Domi would be awesome...

I would like to see improvements in the rogue drone, drones. I liked running in the dronelands back when I ran exploration with my legion and was building the hybrid drones. Unfortunately, the inferiority of these drones really doesn't have a market. I would like to see more hybrid (I don't mean rails and blaster) gear. I think the idea of hybrid weapons would be great similar to how they have the drones. Integrated and augmented autocannons for examples. Find bpc and the drone gear in bulk. The opportunities are limitless and would give the drones something unique.

To quote Lfod Shi

The ratting itself is PvE. Getting away with it is PvP.

This would require time and effort. Neither of which Greyscale or CCP as a whole (according to Greyscale) have or want to have reguarding drone regions.

Once again CCP is pushing into TQ half baked "features" that in reality make life difficult for a large number of players. I thought you were past this CCP. I am extremely disappointed.

Drone alloys made up for the numerous deficiencies of the drones. Bounties can in no way compare, ESPECIALLY, if the bounties are the same as other faction's rats. CCP would it really be that difficult to increase drone bounties by 20% or so? That may partially make up for the lack of any real faction loot, officer spawns, hauler spawns, sec status increase, et cetera.

What irks me is that CCP has basically admitted that their original drone region plan, was a half baked mess, that didn't work out too well. So, instead of fully fixing their mistake, they're throwing out another half baked mess, to fix their old half baked mess. I agree that something needed to be changed, but their unwillingness to add proper loot tables, just stinks of laziness. And this is from someone who has never stepped into the drone regions, and has no stake in the argument.

If they wait til a later date to loot at the other items then there will be 8 regions of almost entirely useless DED sites for at least several months.... I hope CCP realizes this...


Because getting isk for killing them is useless.

that is all

All automated intel should be removed from the game including Instant local/jumps/kills/cynos for all systems/regions.Eve should report nothing like this to the client/3rd party software.Intel should not be force fed to players. Player skill and iniative should be the sources of intel.
