How do you plan to address the issue with Curators and Gardes that don't really take any advantage of the falloff bonus as much as bouncers, creating a huge gap between their usage. Would you think about introducing optimal range only scripts to OTL's to make curators and garde's worth using over bouncers. On a side note, I think same script should be introduced in Turret tracking computers for the same reason, Laser and sometimes Hybrids rely on their optimal to apply their damage making the falloff bonus, only useful for projectiles weapons

Came expecting a whine thread but nah this is a good idea. Kinda. With drones it wouldnt be too bad. But can you imagine the optimal scorch lazors could get with optimal only scripts?

Changes to sentry drones must be bigger than ccp now states - this will reduce drone doctrine usage and increase player experience.

Please tell me, how not giving OTL's and Tracking computers a proper optimal range script will increase the player experience? As far as I know, all Projectile and Bouncers users have a great advantage using tracking computers and otl's with optimal range scripts and falloff increase, but basically, all the others who need optimal range to apply damage their damage don't. Don't you think thats unbalanced?

I'm fine with sticking to optimal/tracking. Curators and gardes should just get their base stats modified.

"**CCP is changing policy, and has asked that we discontinue the bonus credit program after November 7th. So until then, enjoy a super-bonus of 1B Blink Credit for each 60-day GTC you buy!"**

Never forget.

I don't think that would be good, it would benefit drone users that don't fit OTL to their ships
