Go to a system with a Unidentified Structure. Warp to it. Approach the structure.

Well.... You warp to a Jove Observatory beacon off the overview and you should find some Circadians. The Circadians are simple in a Drake, nothing bad there, and once you kill them the Drifters will warp in and annihilate you. Not sure how to deal with them yet, but I'll keep experimenting.

Anyone know if the Drifters will switch targets to engage logi?

Once you burn through the blue shield, the person who is currently aggressed by the Drfiter BS will die.

What if 2 ships engage Drifter? Then one of them stops fire and other continues till blue shield done? Will Drifter DD only last ship or it will kill both?

It is only going to shoot one. Normally the one it is red boxed on.

take off the shields of a drifter in a throw away frigate to get it to DD the cheap frig. Come back and finish it off. Apparently, the DD is on a hour cool down. This is something someone who claims they have been doing tests on them said. I have not tried this myself because of the opportunity costs.

it does 1280 dps omni damage and tracks like medium guns. And if there are 3 on field like it often happens, you have absolutely no chance of kiting other 2. It also has a point, scram and neut.

This, the BS don't come on their own, and if you think you can somehow magically tank 3 of them you in for a big surprise.
As to this being an MMO, I suspect CCP will lose many subs if they keep pushing to make it purely a MMO and make it difficult for people to live in hs, sometimes you just need a break and either you go to hs or you go to another game.

... What next ??

Medium guns can't track small frigates if flown correctly. It's not about tanking, it's about not getting hit.

People mentioned resolution of 20 meters for Drifter guns.
+ DD

Not all things in this game have to be done solo. There are already numerous things to do solo. Burner missions weren't meant to be solo'd, but people have figured out how.

CCP has not, and most likely will not make this purely a MMO where everything has to be done in groups. However, there are some things in game that just have to be done with more than one person.

Yea, I read some more topics about drifters over the weekend. It was apparently a change after Mosaic.
