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.

He didn't say they aren't working they just aren't working as efficiently

So I guess it is too random for any sort of answer? Nobody can answer whether the more slavers = more contraband?
Hmmmph

Yes they are indeed working, but at a very reduced rate...or so it seems.

@Chalpen - exactly. Far too random for any definate yes or no. Some say the longer they work on a target the better the chances, which is true in one way. Yet when dealing with say, and stf, where targets go down faster than you might like, I say more is better lol.
