Imagine you are eating a cheeseburger, it is a decent cheeseburger, but in the back of your head you are thinking about that cheeseburger you ate a few weeks ago, and you just think that one was better. I have a really hard time calling that "tears" or "salt" Although some of the posts are more bitter than others, most of them seem pretty comparable to that.

Thanks for the list of drops. although at 2.8b it seems a lot of that is the MCT, the quafe zero would be a decent part, and then the rattlesnake bpc. I'm not sure how much the clothing is worth, there are a few bits that have similar expensive versions but are cheap, although there is also the possibility some are the expensive versions.

I still run the sites when I see them, but don't expect all that much from them. although CCP said they boosted the loot today so we'll see.

and yes getting out of highsec does seem to be the best way to find the sites. There are a lot in wormholes, and I've heard of a bunch showing up in null. Haven't been in low lately but I'd guess there are some decent spawns there, as there are a lot of out of the way lowsec systems.

You run these sites for the loot? Hmm, I run them for the comments I get in local.

Loss is meaningful. Therefore is the loss of meaning likewise meaningful. It is the source of all trolling.

First couple days, I was getting an extra item every 3-4 sites, since then I run close to 30 sites in null and got just the basic stuff. Has the drop rate declined? Or, does the system you run in have an effect on the drop rate? Feels like CCP hooked me at first then put me on the cut stuff...

As i pointed out wormholes seem to have the best goodies

Well if any of you bothered to read the first post I've ran all sites in wh space. I've add 22 more sites to my list. I've gotten 2 skins one serpentis hardener and 5 cloth items that aren't part of the standard drops. I've ran these additional sites since the supposed increase in drop rate. The fact remains operation frostline is a bust and in no way comes remotely close to as awesome as the blood raider event was.

Confirmed while "Working" I ran 34 of these yesterday. The last 2 in Low sec dropped plexs back to back.. The other 28 in WHs dropped Quafe and Cloths and one Cybernetic Arm

So far I've run around 12 of them (all in WHs) and each and every single one of them so far dropped utter junk.

This thread did not deserve to be resurrected from the bottom of the page.

This is a signature.

It has a 25m signature.

No it's not a cosmic signature.

Probably.

Btw my corp's recruiting.

I finally saw one of these sites. I undocked to do a mission, and there it was. All I had in system was my mission Nestor, but I went for it anyway. Got shirts and quafe.
Then, after completing the mission, and getting the next, I undocked and there was a second site. Did that one and got a catalyst skin, 80 mil, along with snowballs, shirts, quafe, and a booster.
In high sec.

I did 5 of them in deep lowsec space, and gave up, realized you had to do 100s of them to get a plex. and then I saw on reddit someone got 1 plex after doing 400 of them. well, thats not good enough. whole event is busted and ccp failscaded totally here.

Just go find a WH and blitz the sites, after a few you'll get something decent.


Like a cloaky Proteus to the face :D Maybe it's more profitable to farm Frostline site runners instead of the sites?
