Topic: Support role bots.

We currently have 3 types of bots, Combat, Ewar, and mining. What I'd really love to see is support role bots, ones that give bonuses to Energy transfer, remote armor reps, remote sensor boosters, etc.

Just figured I'd mention this in case somehow it's been overlooked by the Dev's. I'm somewhat confident it's already planned however, but just want to be sure.

Agreed. Support bots and command bots to crank up the leadership bonuses, as well.

Re: Support role bots.

I'll agree with this, too, but...

On the side of the devs, could we make sure that everything else is working as close to right as possible first?

Me, I've always played healer types in games: clerics, templars, druids, remote-rep logistics... That would be nice to see. I'm sure that it's on the planning board, too. smile I think a logistics role bot or mech at launch would see some potential use. (Though it would just be a primary target when it shows up on the field of battle, too, just like in every other PvP game.)

I wholeheartedly support this, fixing existing content is ALWAYS more important than adding new content. My suggestion is for when current stuff is completed and the time allows. I'm not demanding it be added immediately. I can make do with a ecm/mining bot for the support role until then. (Yes the mining bots are actually the best at it right now, I'm not kidding.)

So there can be "bait" healers with uber resists and shields, just to draw fire... i like it! tongue
