I know this is an idea that CCP are aware of and that has been posted about on numerous occasions, so I'm not going to try and phrase it as a 'feature suggestion' or anything. I'm just wondering if anybody knows what the latest update is on this in terms of whether they are working on it, whether they have tabled it for the time being or what.

If anybody from CCP has the time to answer I'd really like to know which of the following categories this falls into:

1) There's some kind of technical hurdle making this difficult to implement
2) There's no technical hurdle but it's still a large piece of work and you don't have time
3) You don't want to do this because you are all incredibly evil people who hate logistics pilots and secretly plot to thwart us at every turn.

Anybody in the know care to enlighten me?

Another regular logi pilot would also like to know.

Thanks for being obnoxius and unhelpful.

This is what I currently do, but sometimes I don't have time to screw around with KM whoring due to the more pressing issue of trying to keep my fleet members alive.

In addition, it would be nice to be able to field a full flight of medium logi drones to add to my effectiveness.

You'll notice the title of this thread was not 'How do I get on killmails as logi?'.

But seriously though, your reply was super helpful.

I believe it will happen, as I've heard CCP talking about it as something they intend to do in the future. I just don't know any specifics, which is why I was asking.

Perhaps if you wanted to know potential future design ideas you should ask CCP by petition, or perhaps even phone their offices, rather than asking on a public forum.

Which begs the question - why are you so bothered with KM whoring when your only concern should be keeping your fleetmates alive?

Because it's hardly fair that everybody else on grid who contributes to the kill gets on the KM and the logi doesn't unless he deliberately whores on mails and thus devotes less attention to keeping the fleet alive.

Are you seriously asking this? Why shouldn't logi be on killmails?

Because they contributed to the kill by keeping the damage-dealing ships alive long enough to secure it. Next question.

I'm gonna give another anoying answer. Sorry about that in advance :)

I used to be a logi pilot. I brought warriors and assigned 2 of them to the FC or some one I knew was pro at getting on KM's.

My main job out there was keeping people alive and making sure they got onto killmails. If that meant I would not have the time to deploy drones, then no KM for me that day. It happens.

So here's my anoying answer;

IF killmails are important to you and you feel you need to be on them, you are not in the right ship. You need to be in a ship that makes a hostile act against a target. Right now you're in a ship that has a beneficial effect on a teammate.

You're either logi or not

This is nonsense. It's a PVP game and logistics is a vital role in PVP, there's no reason for logi pilots to miss out on KMs.

Besides, you're completely missing the point. CCP have already said they plan to do this. My question was whether anybody knows what the latest news is on when we might expect it.

Dont fully agree with that to be honest. I do think a logi pilot who's first prioty is killmails doesn't have the proper focus. Whether or not that makes them bad depends on the fight and how this priority affects their logistics.

Which is why I miss out on a lot of KMs. I like logi and i'm very good at it.

There are entire battle reports that have no record I was ever on grid, which is total bull considering the amount of effort logi pilots put in.

You're right. As someone who lights a cyno for fleets, I should be on all killmails. Without me, no fight. I should be on all the blue kills as well. Without me the reds would not have a single target to shoot at.

I do agree with logi being vital for fleets tho. I dont agree with the need to be on killmails.

Those two seem contradicting because they were ripped out of their original context. But even in their current "abused" shape; they're not.

I know you're trying to use this as a counterexample as to why my reasoning is flawed, but if there was a sensible way to do it, I agree cyno pilots should get recognition in a battle report. I'm sure we can agree, however that this would be a hell of a lot harder to track than logistics, who are right there on grid activating targeted modules on other ships.

Besides, in my experience it's very rare for anybody to be a dedicated cyno pilot - it's almost always an alt or a main who tackles and then cynos.
