"The Upwell prototype construction project will place Astrahus citadels in five systems across New Eden: Ourapheh, Anjedin, Asgeir, Mara and PF-346."

Now its known to all :D

If the BPC's had the same chace to show up in every site then it would truly be a lottery amongst the explorers making the effort to actually hunt and hack the sites.


You know those units on the market are only there because other players choose not to participate in the lottery and instead sell their items for ISK. The chance to enter the lottery IS about the effort to hunt and hack the sites. Some players are just choosing to sell their lottery tickets...


Just stating my preference, and I'd have preferred the chance of getting the BPC's to go to those in space finding the lottery tickets rather than those rich folks who can buy more lottery tickets that others went to the shops for :D


So Traders cant play? Well that's inclusive don't you think?

You use your skills and I'll use mine, seems fair.

Could the Dev blog or initial post to this topic be edited to contain a link to the site listing the goal progress. I saw the site this morning through the launcher but could not find a similar link while away from my home pc.

So after logging about 350 jumps in Gallente space... I must say, our starmap needs a route feature. I would love to plot a route, and save that route, being able to load it at any time. Imagine if you could give routes to other players like bookmarks. This would be a huge benefit to everyone. I don't see why something like this isn't implemented yet.

Replotting all my waypoints on the map while using Dotlan map to get the most efficient jump count while covering as many gallente systems as possible is an absolute pain when you do it at least once a day.

Doesn't that distibute chances a bit unfair especialy for inhabitants of 0-Sec ?

Would have been nicer to have special sites spawn all over the universe similar to the frostline sites imo.

Why would they? from the Lore perspective, Upwell operate mostly in Serpentis space and the components were stolen from Upwell. Also, the components are present in ANY ghost site, not just Serpentis ones. Serpentis relic/data sites also spawn in W-Space, Low-sec and High-sec so it is not favouring nullsec dwellers...

Finally, there is nothing stopping you doing sites from another faction to earn ISK and then buy the components on the market. This is potentially the more efficient option given the disparity in exploration site loot value.

Dear CCP, those clothes are hideous.

You keep changing colors on the same crappy old clothes.

Could you please take few hours to design something a bit more sophisticated?

Is there any word on the new station component blueprints, which we were promised would be released prior to the release of citadels?

I know they are only for use (at the last stats) for the new XL's, but since it's a couple of months of research needed it would be nice to get these researched before they come out.

Indeed. Take a look at Gallente High Sec at the moment, it's chock full with explorers searching for Serpentis relic/data sites...

I think CCP might have increased the Serpentis spawn rates. With explorer traffic this dense, it should be really difficult to find something. It isn't. I haven't tried, but it might even be viable to just camp in a Gallente system, and wait for new sites to pop up.

I wouldn't be so sure - there is some evidence that sites respawn somewhere immediately or fairly soon after completed. So a high turnover of sites with everyone finishing all the cans (rather than leaving some stale sites that will sit around for a couple of hours) there is a high site turnover, so a higher spawn rate.

Obviously I have no way to verify this other than anecdotal observations from myself and others.

Prices for the Components have now slipped from last weeks 7.4million each to 2.5million today, does the mean there's now too many of them or that nobody is that interested in the promotion?

I would guess oversupply and people losing interest. Not too late to enter the eve-scout PLEX contest for the components though ;)

Signal Cartel best cartel, but still... currently one can buy one's way to top submission with net profit, and your raffle overall would run at a considerable loss compared to just shopping. Are you expecting people will snipe this seconds before midnight on the 8th?

I think we will see another submission spike to Upwell next weekend. Exploration takes time, and active play. And I have to say, the prices are tempting. Chances are you will get diddley-squat from Upwell's raffle. I submitted my second batch to Upwell more in the spirit of role-play than reward calculation. I hope we complete at least level 4, so that I get some apparel back for hours of "work"...

Agreed, but will the components be worth anything after the draw? Will they continue to be worth something to help produce the Citadels after the launch?

Our interest in RCs isn't for us to get the BPCs from the contest - it's our first foray into RP, a way to get our pilots engaging and having fun and a way to engage with the community. Plus, we think that PLEX is a more enticing reward for people ;)

Less than a week to go, I'm wondering how many RCs have been submitted in total. Any chance CCP can release this?
