So yea, is there loot tables for this by chance? I only received an Overseer item. What? What are the drop rates for other items b/c with all the jumps including all 3 escalations I wasted good ticks ratting for this item.

This site is the reason i stopped doing anything that is not DED.

It takes ages, and the last time it dropped a 3 million isk armour hardener and 1000 rounds of large faction ammo that is utterly useless. And a 6000 isk tag.

I think CCP has been focused on the overall loot numbers, and have issued directives to lower drops across all sectors. Data sites are turning up that are utterly worthless, and our corp has stopped doing combat sites in nul sec except for DED and when we want cash bounties.

Sadly, the DED sites have been showing up less frequently.

In the end, CCP have succeeded in lowering loot drops. the PVE side of the game is basically not worth playing unless you are in a favoured alliance with fresh new super capital content.

With the changes to moon mining, which are a straight up nerf thats demands player time in unreasonable quantities, just to make t2 stuff, I would say the future looks like pvp and alphas. And free chat, his the thing with Alphas.

CCP are probably keen to build the game into a chat room with growing numbers, even if those folks don't pay to be there. If the game were sufficiently large, they could earn revenues from ancillary sources that exploit the player base.

No doubt they already do make significant revenues from selling player data.

Still, keep an eye out for the DED sites. They are still worth the time.

unrated escalations are uter crap. you will lose more than you will win, even if you don't lose your ship. THEN you realize you also lost your time.

what you want is ded escalation, which have OPE.
SOME escalations can have good drops but the rate is so low, and the need to travel so bad, that it is disgusting to have them.

CCP should stop spawning of drone DED3 and unrated in null because this makes every player who try to understand the game puke.

Just so you know, I dont even do the unrated escalations in HS. A Chemical yard site gives more average money than all its escalations together. (still it's the average best escalation I did in high sec)

Confirmed they need to fix this to make sense.
