So i maxed out the mining fuel BPOs and was looking at how much stuff i need and noticed that, for example, if i boosted for 15 hrs that it would take 2 days 9 hrs to make that fuel. (60*60*15 = 54000 <--amount of fuel needed with the basic 60 sec cycle time for 15 hrs) and (54000/500 = 108<--the number of runs). 108 runs equals 2d 9hrs on a max researched BPO. So, what i am pointing out is that we either need to have multiple BPOs or make a lot of copies in advance to keep up with usage. My question to CCP is "Shouldn't the run times on these BPOs be way faster?". I mean they should at least be a 1:1 usage to build time for the basic 60 sec cycle time right?


For those who don't know according to the dev blog cycle times on the command bursts range from 60 secs (basic) to 130 secs (max skills).

Uh... 15 hours at a boost per minute would be 900. Less than 2 runs. 15*60*60 = launching a boost every second.

54,000 is 900 hours worth. There are 720 hours in a month.
