There is the possibility that CCP will never release more Geckos, to keep their collector's item status. Instead, they could put into general circulation Gecko-like drones with new names, and new stats, but that basically do the same task.



with ammount currently on free sale it's very doubtfull how soon those turn to collector's item

Prediction: they're being reworked and will most likely be reseeded after AT.

Price will gradually increase as supply dwindles then immediately crash when they are given out as a Christmas gift or their BPC's start popping up in Data sites.

Of course the only way to tell this has happened will be a month before when all of CCP's pets get the heads up before you and dump all their stock onto market.

Got a question - who is really using Geckos? How often and what is the quantity of teir lost.

You still see them occasionally on 1337 Pee vee Pee Ishtars and VNIs. For ratting, I'd just run with faction heavies or T2; will Geckos speed up a site THAT much that it's 'acceptable' to lose them occasionally?

ProTip: Geckos are equally sensitive to all forms of racial ECM modules with a 22.5 sensor strength across the board. A moderately skilled Griffin should be able to knock them out of commission (and face it, better to jam the Gecko than the drone boat). Tracking Disruption also wrecks a Gecko's DPS output.

I use Geckos in my Rattlesnakes for level 4 hisec missions.

I've got a very large stack of them.

Regardless of the market price, I wanted to ensure I had a supply for many years to come.

If they are released again, It won't matter to me. I'm not collecting them as an investment.

The forecast is: Rain is coming! (If it comes as fast as the Winter in GoT, then all the better). But its OK, I am prepared with lots of buckets, manufacturing them as we speak.

It's always good to rain Geckos. Poor little things die mostly to stupid haulers rather than in combat where they belong!
