ESS Question (Google was no help)

Does the ESS Type and rat type have any effect on LP paid out?

As in do you get a bigger LP bonus if your ESS matches your zone/rats... For example a Caldari ESS being deployed where Guristas are being killed v. Deploying a Minmatar ESS where Guristas are being killed?

Caldari Navy is actively battling Guristas per lore... so one would think they would give out more LP for insights gained from the killing of Guristas when compared to Minmatar. Cause what does the Republic Fleet care about Guristas they aren't actively fighting them per the lore of the game.

I feel like I've noticed a high LP payout while having a Caldari ESS deployed in Vale of the Silent when compared to a Minmatar ESS being deployed in Vale of the Silent.

Can anyone verify this is an actual mechanic of the ESS.

Logically you would think it is this way and based on payouts I've experienced I believe it is this way. I just can't find any info on the net to confirm or deny this.

Why would minmatar pay out LP to someone killing the enemy of their enemy... ya know what I mean?

Thanks for any answers CCP.

CCP should add more NPC 0.0 space to open it up and liven things up: the Stepping Stones project.
