Dear CCP Affinity,

Expecting patch on Jan,25th I had already contracted components to Lee Brinalle at a station in one of a lowsec systems mentioned in her bio today before DT. Should I cancel this contract and reissue a new one when you specify certain stations or will my contact be still accepted?

Thanks

I've got a faction Tower BPC... Will I be able to sell that to an NPC like we'll likely be able to with BPOs?

BPC's for items taken out of game, are likely to be reimbursed directly. CCP did that with data interface invention tools when they were removed during the Industry rebalance.

If it only would be stated where those special Research components come from?

Exploration sites. Data, Relic and Ghost sites - each hacked can normally contains one unit of "Research Component"
The components do NOT drop in Sleeper Caches

No, not exactly the same name. One lowercase L is replaced with an uppercase i . Considering the person didn't even try to use the same bloodline to copy the face properly, it should be easy to figure out who is the original.

Edit:
Thank you Sama Dobrota! Even though it might have been obvious, it could have had different methods of acquiring or be specific to certain areas or having other weird placements c:

The reason why I asked is because I heard too much conflicting information about it, and we know that patch notes are not always accurate. It says: "must be retrieved from Serpentis Exploration Sites and Ghost Sites."
Some claim it to be ANY exploration site except sleeper. Some claim it only to be ghost sites. Some claim it is data sites only, not relic. The list goes on.

That is why I hoped to get an official statement to check if the devblog has information that might have been changed in the last minute. And of course, we know that bugs can happen so who knows how many of these reports are accurate and research components drop from things they should not drop from c:
Just trying to get the correct picture here.

I disagree. My contract (from 16th) is still active.

We want to remind players that impersonating the event character for your own gain is strictly prohibited and will be handled in accordance with our policies. Users that attempt to scam research components from other players through impersonation will become ineligible for a prize on all their accounts.

How many "Research Component" needs to be destroy to sabotage Upwell plans?
If players will get BPC for first Citadels, and they will be the first one who build them - can owner of the BPC block deployment of some citadel class by not using this BPC?

Will those prototype citadels be usable by players?
Are the current "Astrahus Exemplar Sites" where the citadels will be?
