I just listened to the Twitch broadcast about how these tags drop..
and they told something like:
"there is something that influence the spawning of these NPC"
"you will figure it out pretty quickly"

could that be the amount of ore mined in the belt / system?

other wild speculations?

EDIT: to be clear I am talking about theses magic tags that help you bring up Security Status up and what impact their spawn rate

Assuming you're talking about spawn rate (I didn't listen to the stream)...

Given that they're all clone soldier trainers/recruiters/etc., the obvious answer is that it will be Dust related. It could also be FW related, but since FW is basically the nexus for DUST integration into Eve, there's kind of a blurry boundary there.

Also:

The new NPCs represent the pirate factions seeing profit and/or power by supporting the clone mercenaries of DUST 514. This support has caused local CONCORD officials to offer special rewards to capsuleers who keep this new menace at bay.

Will have zero baring on how many spawn, but I bet 'influence' in those regions (FW) will.

Looks fun and means the 'other' 50% of systems us Wormholers link to will be worth spending time in as well.

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

As long as someone drops them onto the market, I don't really care how they find them.

a link from Dust would be plain boring..
especially because Dust is in only one region for now..

wait.. does that mean....total planetary conquest in all low sec for June 4?
There is not even enough Dust players to do it lol..

It will be influenced by the number of speculation threads about this in GD.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?
