Anyone notice an increase of loot when more slavers are flying around?
Or is it a global cap?

It is random but it happens often.
I just want to know if I have 4 sets out if it is better than 2 for contraband and the like.

Well I know it's a roll of the dice when dealing with advanced slavers as to what they pick up, however; over the course of the past few weeks my slavers have done great with pulling contraband. Until two weeks or so ago. Now I'm lucky to get 6 contraband out of any given map. I'm honestly starting to believe they've nerfed the chances of them grabbing anything at all. At one point I thought there was a cap, so I left my carrier in th e shipyard for a couple days.

Nope, still not grabbing the amount they did 2 weeks ago. Watching the EC and other commodities they are able to grab. Those are low too. I dont know at this point if this was an accident, or intentional, but something has definately happened to the slavers.

Recently I too noticed adv slavers not dropping contraband so I think they were stealth nerfed.
Sometime ago maybe before S7 they were spamming contraband like crazy, now nothing.

Prior to last update (march, 21) either in STF?s missions . romulan space daily?s. Or any npc battle, I would harvest on average 10 contraband a hour.. Now I?m lucky to get 2/0 a hour? somebody definitely hit the off switch re contraband .. now that I have 60,000 dilithium invested in hangar ships that collect junk .. I?m not pleased

Each individual fighter gets a roll of the dice as to whether or not a resource is stolen per instance of time. So the more fighters that are out, the more rolls of the dice. The more the dice are rolled the more often you will get something.
