Do not. Remove other weapons. From drone ships.

If the Vexor becomes unable to fit guns, the amount of people who fly it will drop to incredibly low numbers; it'd be ENTIRELY DEFENCELESS if you were just starting out and wanted to fly one and only had, say, drones 3 with scout drone operation. Automatically you'd have to end up having Drones 5 and a bunch of other things before even entering this new proposed gunless Vexor; This is DUMB. It will make the appeal of the ship completely crash.

I really, really hope you're not talking about meddling with the Gurista ships too. Because then I have beef with you. If nothing else, Gurista ships need more fitting (Enough to field the next request, and then a bit extra as they're incredibly tight on CPU), and +1 launcher hardpoint each.

If nothing else, maybe make the bonuses to drones more significant than the bonuses to the other weapons while still keeping both? ie. rather than 5% per level, some 7.5% or even 10% in some ability per level?

If the Vexor gained additional drone bonuses it would have to lose the gun bonus at minimum. Subcap "dedicated drone carriers" with gun bonuses are all kinds of bizzare.

I am starting to have second thoughts on buying an Arbitrator.

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Arbitrators are actually fairly awesome.

Arbitrators are quite nice. Illogical doesn't mean "not fun to play".
