Wait really? They don't steal?
Did I miss something?
Cos I just bought 'em a while ago.... :/

Is it just really low steal rate or they totally don't steal anymore.

Gosh I should have read this post earlier.
After I got a free carrier, I decided to test out the rumors of contraband from slavers...

And..... looks like I walked right into a nerfed zone.......

The rate is so low they basically steal once a day rather than once a mission (15 mins).
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

I am pleased to announce, ladies and gentlemen, that my slavers have once again, overcame adversity and managed to finally steal something!

*drumroll please*

After several weeks, multiple missions and numersou stfs, they have gifted me with:

2 Provisions!!!!

It just goes to show you that if you dream hard enough, a handicap is a boon, less is more and a nerf is really a buff.

Why do you have to be under 7k.. your carrier doesn't steal.. I think you will find the your 7k rule was a fluke.

Another week gone by and still no fix .... (replace fix with change for those that remain naive and say "they do steal if you wait long enough"... like we have any hour long missions)

Ok Cryptic, face it - the poor things are useless now. They either have been nerfed to oblivion or they're so bugged that they can't reckoginze their primary role anymore.

I don't usually fly carriers and fdc, but I took out my Corsair for a change and after almost 2 hours of game time, my slavers stole nothing. Absolutely nothing, nada, zero, zilch.... Not even energy credits. I know, I played exploraiton missions and it's no problem to pay attention in those - the slavers got nothing, really not even EC. lol

Devs., they need another look and fix obviously or does WAI mean broken once again?

mine elite slavers seem to steal alot of EC povisions and medical supplies.. but very little CB and hardly any of the rare ones..

its very disappointing.. they only dev post we have said that they have the chance to steal increased by 3x.. but this isnt the case.. when they do steal CB its only 1 at a time..

the other day i flew in about 15 missions.. STF, FA, CC.. i got only 3 CB the entire night

Would be nice if they offer a prototype-refund to unhappy slaver owners like they did the andorian stuff :/ (even if its like 50% refund due to teh nature of contraband)
