i was just thinking about how the droids are controlled in the clone wars because at know point do you see anything that can control the droids, but they still have the back packs with the antenna.
so was that weakness taken out and if so how are they controlled now?

After the Battle of Naboo the Droid Control Ships were 'scrapped.' They now serve as standard Lucrehulk transports and blockade vessels.

The droids are now able to operate independantly without having to rely on a Droid Control ship.

It makes you wonder why they didn't just do that to start with. Was it easier to command from the control ship? Maybe it was cheaper to have everything run through that instead? They don't touch on it but I'm sure it's something like that.

i think they had more control over the droids with the control ships

The obvious advantage is the enhanced control.
Every droid knows everything all the time. The commanders know everything all the time.
Without a central control, this is not possible.
I guess, it is not possible to use both systems at the same time. Either you have the comm unit or you have an enhanced AI installed.
