Wasp have crew
« on: August 02, 2012, 09:45:03 PM »

Maybe not a bug? But dunno why they'd have crew all of a sudden.

Thanks icepick37 for pointing this out, but:

This is not a bug. Since drones are in the game now through systems, and the wasps just no longer made sense to be without crew.

The lore also reflects this change.

not shure if this is a bug, its not in the patch notes so im reporting it.

will check on mining drones if i see them

mining drones to need crew.

from move:

ok if they need crew, are they fighters now.

i ask because if there still technicly drones but manned, i shouldent lose crew if they die becuase people generally are not on the drones they fly.

Mining fighters? Sounds wrong.

"Mining Pods".


For requiring crew now shouldn't they be buffed a bit?  That means that you risk losing crew in them and that draw more crew to operate.

I think their "buff" is now that they can take advantage of better quality crew accuracies

They already have some of the toughest armor and hull, maybe they should get a mining blaster? *Evil laugh"

That doesn't really change anything. At all. Beams can still miss with the lesser crew AI, less so when it's better

Please use another thread to continue this discussion. In this subforum in particular going off-topic is very distracting for me.

Apologies, Alex. I tend to get rather... involved once there's an argument/debate/whatever you want to call this. Does tend to drive me off the main point quite often :P

With that, I shall stop the derailing
