Approved. Please remove drone assist and make faction non-officer DDAs.

Completely fair changes. You guys were cautioned on how ridiculous these were compared to their turret equivalents, glad you finally caught up with your user feedback... long after implementing them.

as long as my ishtar can volley with bouncers from 150k still, okay

So..
- 25% optimal, 25% tracking
turns to either
- 7.5% optimal, 15% falloff, 15% tracking
- 15% optimal, 30% falloff
- 30% tracking

Correct?

So the range difference depends on the optimal vs. falloff now. On first glance It looks like a buff for Bouncers and okay for the rest.
Ofc you can overheat now, so there's that.

I was worried that you guys would nerf them too hard, but I am quite please with these changes.

Good point. It's 4 cap per activation (10s activation)
I updated the OP with it.

Should be a nerf to drone sniping and pretty much a buff to close range fighting from what I can understand.

with bouncers.. yes but less effectively (more within falloff). With curators you wont snipe that far anymore.

These values would be fine if sentry drone range / tracking was more in-line with turrets and a single person wasn't able to pull the trigger for an entire fleet of ships at exactly the same time (in turn achieving perfect alpha) every four seconds or so... Unfortunately, they can, so all you've done is increase the close-range tracking of an already disgustingly broken mechanic with a slight decrease in damage at extreme ranges. Now not even the interceptors will escape. Thanks Fozzie.

Edit: But on the plus-side PvP is much more interesting now that we don't even have to click buttons or watch three grey bars turn red, someone else can do it for us, so at least there's that...

Oh wait.

Will ship bonus to sentry range apply to falloff as well?

No, although there will always be the option of adding drone falloff bonuses to ships/rigs/other modules in the future.

I think the range and track bonus should be inverted inrelation to the track comptuer ones.


But they have to pick range or tracking, not both. Granted, range will be the no-brainer nine times out of ten because sentries already track better than guns at almost any given range, but that's a separate issue.


A separate issue that really needs to be adressed. Buff my turrets!

The big question: Can we still use these to increase the tracking speed of our heavy drones to chew up small ships? Now more then EVER?

CCP Fozzie, are there considerations on implementing rogue drone faction mods as well as federation navy and imperial navy drone mods?

Rogue drone mods for drone complexes and sites.

Edit: thoughts on effects
Fed navy mods increased stats, T2 fitting
Imperial navy t2 stats, reduced fittings
Rogue drone increased stats, reduced fittings

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

I think that this will be an overall good change. It will create a new piloting and fitting meta for drone boats. Thanks Fozzie :)

So what you are saying is that my Garde II's are now getting killed on optimal in my mission boats, plus I now have to deal with cap issues.
Man, do you ever hate high sec mission runners, and love the goon whiners.

Your allegiances could not be more transparent.
