I intentionally avoid flying ships that can handle them, because I like them so much.

I'll probably stop using them and put em on display in my CQ from now on.

Heh - I've must have lost 10 of them but I have a bunch more from replacement and have noted the price creeping up.

Running 2X Gecko with 2X medium and one light from a Hyperion has been fun and outstanding DPS.


Time to mothball them for a while.


Geckos have become purpleized aka they're worth ganking your ship for them. Specially while they're in space and safe from the loot fairy...



Yup, I'm gonna have to take them out my machariels

I haven't used mine yet, mainly because i haven't the skills to fly a ship that will make use of them. But its in my training queue for a Rattler Blink

I have a pile of 50, and, bit by bit, I just released them all, shot them, and bragged about it in local.

The problem is just: they are getting too expensive to actually use. I really liked them, they are much better all in all than heavies



10-20M is too expensive?

They're more like 100-120 a piece in Jita. I am considering to name the ones I still have, they're becoming like pets or something.

To some extent, the Gecko was an experiment by CCP to see if they were a good replacemnt for heavy combat drones. That is, do the same task with fewer drones, thus reducing server load. I assume they did that, as they were well received and used.

I hope CCP releases an equivalent drone that does the same task as the Gecko. (But not more Geckos themselves. Leave those as collector's items.)

What I'd to see if they release a Gecko-X BPO that is essentially the Gecko, but not on steriods. That way we would still have a strong heavy drone, but no so OP as the Geckos are currently. Then they can be mass produced and pew pew'ed everyday.

Although, I would love to get some tasty forum tears if CCP announced the current Gecko would become a permanent thing and BPO's are being released. Suddenly the price would drop down to <10mil/unit and all the people who've been hoarding them would panic sellPirate

The point was he has 1000 of them that he bought for 10M each, so they only cost him 10M to lose. Sure he could sell them now and make money, but he can equally choose to use them and be one of few people able to still use them cost effectively.

I understand that, but I was actually referring to Malcanis's post, not Alpysia's.

Holding on to your stock of Geckos as an investment can be risky though. Just ask people who invested heavily in Geno implants. Blink


I invested a few months after the 3's and 4's were given out in larger numbers and did quite well Twisted, (though I could've done better if I didn't stall on selling all of them when it hit 100m).

I have 24 Geckos and 31 of each flavor of Geno.

USE THEM. My alts all have full heads of Genos and full drone bays of Geckos. Yes, I will eventually lose them but that's the price you pay to USE them.

If you think you've won, think again.

The CODE always wins.

How long before CAM is allowed back? It's much better when you necro and troll with CAM instead of your other characters.

As to Gecko's, not likely to happen for a while.

The market kind of dropped out of them with the announcement of the Capital changes, with carriers no longer being able to use normal drones. Geckos are under 80 million now.

So it'll take a while for them to climb back up again as demand has dropped.

Some people here kinda remind me of that child given Barbie Doll's for XMAS that sits them unopened on the shelf in the original packing because they might be worth something one day.
