I have had the last 5 in a row (and these are escalations from anoms) not escalate to part 2. Is anyone else having this problem? Or is it "new content" I am not aware of.

File a bug report. Fleet Staging point ( of all factions) is a DED plex now, converted over from the non-rated plex it was originally. CCP did this instead of adding a new (real) 9/10 DED plex. So Fleet staging point should NEVER fail. I had to petiton it once a few years ago, but the problem was supposed to be fixed.

Whether you get it from an anom or scan it down, it should never fail to escalate all the way to Fleet Staging point 3.

THis almost always stops escalating , so people are not doing it.
Also randomness of escalation points is sooooo random.
All Sansha base that escalated where leading me to the same system for the first part .
Once i had 3 first stages there in the same time.

I think i might have done this site maybe a 100 times... Never once had it not escalated.

Then i had a small break around new year, and after that i've had it not escalate maybe one out of 5 times.. or so.

They "changed" it recently, from being a 100% escalation, to not being so. - How can i tell?

Well beforehand, when you killed the last npc's in room number two it ALWAYS spawned a message in Local, saying that you killed the last ship bla. bla. got a new destination...(you know what i mean)

I thought it was a bug aswell, because the message actually DID appear, without me actually getting an escalation, so i bug reported it/Sent a ticket. The answer i got was that it has always been like this, and it was a non ded-site.. not quaranteed to escalate-

Now however, if it does not escalate, the message no longer appears so obviously something was changed.

Is it BS? .. Yes it is! The escalation mechanics is god awfull, and i dont understand why they would change something that worked and was a valuable and fun ded-site it had its own uniqueness with being an escalation site, but guaranteed to get to the end. I really liked it and now i'm just not getting the thrill...

I really want not to whine about it, because i believe in the adapt to play... But i just dont understand why this change was for the better... it's simply stupid.
