With the coming point release EVE Online: Rubicon 1.1 we will add more deployable structures:

  • Two new siphon variants, one to more efficiently stealing refined components and one to steal polymers
  • One unit to be deployable in nullsec called Encounter Surveillance System (ESS)


The bounties in Nullsec are lowered by 5%. An active ESS lowers the bounty payout even more down to a total of -20%. Interacting then with the ESS gives you back between 20% and 25% so that you end up with 100% to 105% bounty of the current bounty value. Interacting with the ESS will allow you then to cash in the collected bounties in form of tags which can be sold to the Empires. You can choose to take all the bounties for yourself or share the bounties amongst every contributor.

Please read the latest blog by CCP SoniClover which contains all the details about those new structures!

Update
Check the latest update on the ESS based on large amounts of player feedback. CCP SoniClover presents the updated ESS attibutes and mechanics.

Hmm, let's have a look.

Yep, the ESS should bring a lot of fun small gang warfare to 0.0.

Is the warp bubble on the ESS nullified by interceptors/T3s?

ESS is the biggest shakeup to small gang warfare in null in a long while.

Great great deployable.

Each race has their own ESS, so there are four in total, Amarr/Caldari/Gallente/Minmatar Encounter Surveillance System. An ESS allows an empire to monitor bounty-generating activities in the solar system it is deployed in. Why this is a thing is due to an on-going and ever-growing feud between the empires and Concord. Concord has decided that monitoring these bounty-generating activities (i.e. killing pirates) outside of their jurisdiction is becoming too expensive, especially with the lost income from high-sec Custom Offices. As a result, they will no longer pay the full bounty amount. There is no statistical

After Rubicon 1.1 the payout for killing pirates in Null Sec is 95% of the actual bounty. So a pirate with a bounty of 100.000 ISK will give whomever killed it 95.000 ISK after the point release.


What's the missing part of the sentence here?

Where will you be able to convert ISK tags into ISK?

Edit: It looks like this was (partially) answered in the first post, i only read the dev blog before i asked the question.

Should be something along the lines of there being no statistical differences between the racial variants.

So why shouldn't the ESS be available in lowsec? Some issues with faction warfare?


If that's the case make it usable in non-faction warfare lowsec.

While you are at it make faction warfare sites not enterable with a stab on your ship.

It is possible we do ESS variations with different placement restrictions sometimes in the future. But the null sec version is the only one for 1.1

The EES sounds like a good idea but it should grant a higher bonus than a maximum of 105% what is currently effective at Rubicon 1.0. Maybe something like 110% Of course the base payout could then become 90% without the structure to compensate.

Asking questions here so I don't have to assume the answers are NDA'd...

What happens if a small fleet warps in? Say three people-- does it announce three of them, or just one? Also, what's the radius of the announcement?

I'm not really convinced the rewards for the ESS are worth the risk, here. You're asking people to put 15% of their bounties at risk for an additional 5-10%. Given the recent interceptor changes there's virtually no way to defend you space against an interceptor gang. The interceptor gang cannot be tackled or delayed, and can buzz every ESS with enough inties that they can easily kill any ratting ship that shows up (and most ratting ships are virtually powerless against an interceptor) and if somehow your defense gang gets there, bug out.

There's also no info on how long it takes this thing to power up, which is sort of important.

I assume the tags will be converted into ISK via NPC buy orders. Will the orders for a given racial tag variant be restricted to that race's space? For example, if I happen upon some Caldari bounty tags, do I have to go to Caldari space in empire to turn them in, or can I sell them anywhere?

Don't want to do the real work and fix pos code so we'll just tinker with a bunch of stuff. Should I pass the weak sauce? Oh wait I see you already have plenty.
