CCP (and Game of Drones in particular), you have all my love for doing it to FW farmers with less than 24h notice. I am so looking forward to the tears from this. Lol


I am glad that CCP loves tears as much as we do! Twisted

Not really.
It just means that two factions will run a dump while two factions are stuck with their LP

...and people who were slowly buying implants for post-patch suddenly rush to clear them, as people desperately get their last cashout in, and plex speculation goes mad

As a pirate in FW space, I have to say I am very much looking forward to the crazy insanity I am about to see from the gunless frigate brigade.

Some good news there, althou I as an actual participant wish I had farmed more while it lasted then just do a run or two a month to get isk for ships =(

Limiting open missions to 5 might be abit harsh to, sure at tier5 it'll be worth "10" missions but the time involved for a run be it 5 or 10 missions is very close togheter so that might be overboard.

Great thing my 1m non fw lp might actually be worth 400m in a month or two to xD

We've tested it internally on test servers not open to the public (first on an internal server then on Buckingham, which you may have noticed was in VIP mode since the end of last week).

the only point i am not quite sure about is the mission count cap. I would rather try to solve that issue by adding a penalty of not finishing a (FW) mission (e.g. standing with the agent) - this will make many think twice how many missions they accept at once. But this is a difficult issue in general since those who accept the mission are not nessesary those who finish the mission.

(but this is only a sidenote, again: awesome work!)

This October Surprise is so full of win it's not even funny. I'm glad to see CCP responding quickly to significant balance issues rather than sitting on their hands for years.

Fix POSes.  Every player should want one (even if all players can't have one).

So is there a mad RUSH for WINmatar Tier 5 today?PirateBlink

Good to see the madness cut short & suddenly Straight
Seriously: the LP Store ISK reduction was a horrible idea when there were far too few ISK sinks already... I'm glad to see it wiped off the map & hope it never rears its ugly head again in another Monty Haul like bonanza. Cheap attribute implants will be floating around in the market for years from these few months of cashouts where the per item costs cut the fairly inelastic items by a fourth.
