Wtth the Kronos release (to be published on June 3rd), we will see new exploration sites for you to discover and, eventually, to plunder.

The full story of these new exploration sites, the people and factions behind them, if and how you can profit there, why they contain exciting new modules and shiny new ship skins, is all explained in CCP Affinity's latest dev blog Sweeping Death and Chaos: New Exploration Sites in Kronos. Don't miss to read it!

So are the Contested sites located through probe scanning or they pop just like Ghost Sites?

Step 1: Hack a site for info.
Step 2: Sell info to nullsec group that owns that nullsec station?

i really like the idea of choosing which side you want to be on. good job. ideally, both are equally rewarding, but time will tell.

you can't own an NPC station. you can, however, have a presence in the form of spaceships there.

Can you clarify if these sites are Signatures or Anomalies please?

I have run the Site where you have to fight Mordu and its an anom.

not sure about the other one though.

Also let it be known the the combat one is a hard nut to crack... like i needed a 1700 dps snake to beat it.

so it would be fair to assume to these combat sites are at a min a two man job.

Also keep in mind that all modru ships will scram you once you start fighting so dont expect to get out soon...

I would say bring a mobile depot with a bunch or warp stabs and you should be fine if hostiles enter the anom

Does the penultimate paragraph mean that the new low grade implants will only be found in besieged sites?

The Contested Guristas Covert Research Facility sites are cosmic signatures and will have to be probed down first.
The Besieged Covert Research Facility sites however, (once unlocked) are cosmic anomalies and will appear on the scanner like Ghost sites.

I understand the concept of creating conflict situations but it always seems that as soon as you have something tied to a single system, you end up in camping situations that can only be overcome with blobs. This removes the ability for a lot of players who don't want to get into fleets to engage in the new content.

IMO, there should be 2 or 3 different systems as spawn points that are distances from each other so that no 1 party can camp them all at the same time ..

And no, I am not whining because I don't want to be in fleets, I am a nullsec alliance player...

Ran into a contested site yesterday on sisi. It was an anomaly and there were no npcs. Just a single data container that was empty when I hacked it. Flying around today to see if they have been changed with the patch that went to sisi just now.


that seems rather un fun...

one would think that for the scanning site that guritas would have interst in protecting thier research... i think this one should be like ghost sites where they are half combat half hacking

Will there be a tracking site that shows how many more loyalty points need to be turned in before the second stage/permanent content is unlocked?

If i dont know something about EVE. I check https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/ISK_The_Guide

See you around the universe.

Afraid not. This statistic will be tracked internally but we'll be clear in our messaging in regards to its progress.
A visual progress stat is definitely something we want for future events like this though.

Neat

That being said, would have been nice to relocate them somewhere else that's not 3 jumps away from the only nullsec SOE space in the game
