YOUR defense drone fails to get a lone missile almost 20% of the time and fails to shoot down a boarding drone or hacking drone more like 40% of the time.
and this is due to the Drone Targeting Glitch: https://www.reddit.com/r/ftlgame/commen ... ng_glitch/ , which can mostly be fixed but not completely
Yep I knew there was something amiss, but I didn't know what until you mentioned that. Thanks.
I want to mention something for anyone struggling to understand the drone targeting glitch (like the final conversation in that Reddit thread): the red area in the image is advanced further inward than what the defense drone actually sees. It can see a missile before it hits the Kestrel's piloting room, but it won't have time to fire by the time it sees it. If the missile comes in at a funny angle, it still might have time. Hacking drones never come in at a funny angle as far as I can tell, so they should have 100% success rate against Kestrel piloting no matter how many defense drones you have.
