So are you still looking at boosting Assault and HQ sites a little more? Or is this is for balancing Incursions?

Also, approve of the drone alloy -> bounty changes. More power to the miners!

So the summary is:

#1 More expensive ships
#2 Less ability to make isk in incursions
#3 If you live in the drone region your true sec now sucks.

Hard to get excited about 3 nerfs in one blog.

We want to wait and see how these changes pan out and then we will look at further changes if we feel it's necessary :) I don't think we can ever say 'balancing is done' about any feature.

Easy to get excited about 3 buffs in one blog.


FTFY.

Also, again, loving the changes of this + removal of Meta 0 drops from rats effectively removing gun mining from the game.

I hope that drones will have big enough bounties since they dont drop any meta loot.

These changes will generate enough tears to terraform Mars. Twisted

I love all of them, even though I will sorely miss whoring incursions for extreme iskies. Blink

Now please ban all mining bots. P

Thank you CCP Affinity. Thank you for coaxing 0.0 miners back out so I can shoot them again. Twisted

Sounds good to me. Pirate

Great change to the way Incursion sites spawn, that's enough to make me want to go back knowing I'm doing more than shooting Deltoles all day.

My only concern is that for the pug fleets that were spending time to form up with their T1 guns etc and pulling in 50-60 mil p/h, the change to both how the sites spawn and the 10% nerf to VG payouts may well force them back into L4 missioning. Intended or unfortunate sideeffect?


Scouts still require some love, but overall this is a great way forward with fixing Incursions.



Crap I almost forgot to post about the drone changes. First off I'll quote Grid:

But while you're adding a bounty to them is it possible you could change Rogue Drone salvage tables and make them actually worth salvaging, then they're in line with all other non Merc rats?

When your gut instincts tell you something is wrong, trust them. When your heart tells you something is right, ignore it, check with your brain first. Accept nothing, challenge everything.

AWESOME!!! THIS WAS REALY NEEDED!!!

Drone alloys was killing the mining game play in eve...

And now that alloys are getting removed and moon minerals will be added to to asteroids, the industrialists and miners will have a big role again!!

Now we just need a cloak hunter ship to prevent people from ruining the industrial level of the systems by staying there cloaked until it reaches 0...

Also, some sort of X-Large corporate hangar for minners to store stuff on POS is realy needed.... it makes no sense storing things on a X-Large ship assembly array... Also it would be realy interesting to fave a tab for each player store its stuff...( remove the tabs and add folders or something like it...)... this could also be applied to assembly arrays!

Also, mining barges should have allot more tank!!! can you imagine something designed for mining operations being made of glass? They should be resilient rock chewers! at last the hulk! it should tank as a strong BS!

THX CCP! You are doing a wonderful work!
