Proposal: Kronos and Vargur Drones

Recommended Posts

With max drone skills:

2 Augmented Ogres: 139,4 DPS
5 Augmented Hammerheads: 174,2 DPS

Both the Kronos and the Vargur only have 50 Mbit for drones and with Augmented Hammerheads, you do about 35 more DPS, which is quite significant if the whole fleet does it. Unsure if this was discussed already when making fits or guides, but there you go.

Hammerheads get destroyed a *lot* more than Ogres do, no idea why. I used to put Hammers in my Claymore, and I usually didn't get all five back from a  TCRC bash. I don't think anybody is going to kick you off the waitlist for bringing them, but it's not profitable

Same. Back when on-grid boosters got pay-outs, I started out with Hammerheads in my claymore too. I'd lose about 1 per TCRC...

Kronos is easy, 5 hammerheads for NRF and TPPH, 2 ogres for TCRC.

Vargur drone bay is a little more difficult to figure out an optimal solution for. Maybe 2 ogres, 1 hammerhead, 3 hobgoblins? Drop both ogres for a TCRC, but otherwise a mishmash for NRF and TPPH?

Yeah, Hammerheads get munched on. Also, Xo, you know that this isn't how proposals work...

He's a line member, he can propose where he wants. Right here has a better chance of being taken seriously than throwing it out in TS3 or WTM chat. :)

The reason heavy drones were chosen over mediums was because of surviability. Medium drones can die in TCRCs, and drone dps is so lame and insignificant given how poorly drones apply relative to the main guns dps, that we chose to take the dps penalty for more surviability. Adittionally, the rest of our non marauder optimal fits use heavy drones, and so cross training would be less of an issue. Although marauders are such a high skilled ship anyway that high sp pilots probably also have medium drone operation 5 as well, so this is kinda not as big of an issue.

What about carrying some lights? As the waves go quicker and we normally have 2 DDD why not have some light drones to help kill the frigates in NRF/TPPH and on TCRC have heavies/Gecko?

This basically. It's better to put it somewhere on the forum, you get a lot more response and some permanent response, not something that gets said over voice or on discord.

Thanks for the reponses. I guess I will carry them myself for the DPS increase, as they are still accepted.
