Forced Drone Recalls stat is not consistent in meaning with other stats
The new "Forced Drone Recalls" stat appears to count the number of times another agent has caused your drone to return home. In some sense, this is almost an anti-stat: the goal should be to keep it low, but keeping it low also doesn't differentiate between those who don't use their drone at all.
This seems to be analogous to having a stat for something like the number of portals we've lost.
The other Defense stats are all stats that require some sort of skill, even if it is just remembering to recharge portals once a week, and reward those who actively play. I don't think the Forced Drone Recalls stat reflects that same philosophy.
Counting the number of times you've forced another agent's drone home as a combat stat would seem to be more consistent with the character of the existing stats.
