Bomber Drone kills should count the same as any Ship kill.

Kill a Drone get the same credit all round as if you have killed a ship in Death Match and Domination. This might cut down the number a bomber would put out. Might make the placement of drones more creative.

Just a thought, please discuss.

Not that much. Maybe half or a third, or maybe a lot of bonus req?

Count the same as Req/participation, or as domination points ? Or both ?

I'd disagree a lot if it were about domination points. Drones and mines are easily destroyable, too easily destroyable and much less deadly to be on the same level of a player.

I was thinking (it hurts really bad) maybe 5 drone kills = 1 ship kill in death match for the opposing team?

Player gets 2 ship req points per drone kill? In any match.

For requisition, it would be reasonable to assign a small amount- like a fifth or a fourth. It's trivial to kill a drone compared to a player, as the drone is stationary and has less health and shields. However, it definitely does take away from total damage done to player targets.


Clearly it should not count for a kill in TDM- that would be awful. Not even a fraction of a kill.

If I'm not mistaken they already do count as kills. Check the battle record.

I disagree.

As it was stated before, drone is too easy to destroy - just sitting in place. I would rather give a small comms bonus (for instance 1 comm for mine, 5 for drone). That would reward destroying drones, but wouldn't cause imbalance to the game.

They're counted separately from player kills, and rightfully so.

Are you high? Having some automated mine or turret that does the killing for you count? All you did was drop the thing, not like you did any actual shooting yourself. :P

Awesome suggestion!
