Anyone have any info on this?
I see it listed for tomorrow but not much has been released about it.
Is it the same as guardians gala but with drones?

Also the info on the update roadmap changed from Plex and accelerators to include skins and bpcs. What skins are they gonna have?

Thank you, seems harder than the gala, and what the skins/waves are.
I was expecting black and silver with red lights like the event banner.

They are everywhere on sisi. Make sure you have beacons on your overview.

They're in all security level systems.

just did three, wiyrkomi leviathan skin, valimor legacy vexor, kador executioner and an accelerator.

news article is wrong.

4 waves, starting with 3-4 frigates, destroyers, cruisers, mixed, waves strengthen to 6 ships most ive seen so far, around the third wave a large spawn of small drones (apis) spawns, and last ship kill spawns a battlecruiser at 27km approximately from warpin at 0 (i wasnt moving) not sure what range battleship spawn was at


doing it in a harbinger, never dropped below 95% shield, much faster and easier than the guardians gala sites. 10/10 event

If you run it really fast you can avoid the small drone spawn. The BS lands at about 20k.

Farmed a few sites and then rushed to sell the loot to buy-orders in Jita.
17B profit for half an hour of shooting and moving. 10/10, would do it again.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

Yeah, those no-lifers. Blink

When I'm at home and ready to shoot, the prices will be down probably... Roll

I'm my own NPC alt.

Well to be fair, it's like the first time in 3 months (likely longer) that I bothered to undock.

it seems tied to hull size, they dont appear on my omen, but when in harbinger its everytime, i have 2 times the dps as my omen.

Please upgrade the drone rats to strain versions, sites are far too easy. Even the occasional surprise minidrones dont do any damage.

I would give it a 5/5 so far, sure the difficulty is a joke, but I am having lots of fun stealing the final spawn from other people, made more or less 2b in 1.5 hours and had a jackdaw going suspect while my bhaalgorn was sitting right on top of it :).

Of course messing with the other players is the most fun in the event, still it is that much fun that I might actually stick around for a couple of days, instead of just reactivating my accounts and then not bothering to log in at all :).

I kind of have a jealousy/hatred thing going on for all of you who can hit this event right after it is released.

By the time I log in tonight, the profits from these skins will have dropped to pocket change.

Yea, its ridiculous how big the advantage is for players who were able to log in right after server went online. The loot contains SKINS that were traded for 1 bill before the event, so a lucky player with alts could make 10+ bill in the first 30min (~3min per site with good fit). Now all buy orders are filled and the SKINS are worth like 15mill.

I dont know what CCP was thinking when they added rare SKINS to the loot table. They are lost all value within like 1h.
