Dozen strongboxes so far, sourced from high sec. Only T1 hauler kills. Just a mixture of industrial ship skins. Anyone get anything else to drop from the strongboxes?

Thank you

I've done about 60 haulers, t1 and t2 in high sec but none of them ever dropped more then skins. So i really have the same question. Wil bpc or faction loot ever drop from these haulers in high sec or is it a must to go to low/null sec for them?

I am probably at the 60+ range now too, with some T2 hauler kills. 2 Harvester Mining drone BPCs in addition to a skin. No noticeable difference between T1 and T2 hauler drops but I have maybe only hit 5 or 6 so far.

Wow, I wish my Prospect did that.

I came back to the game and already saw a lot of 'em eating roids.

I hope this is going somewhere soon, since the only thing they are doing right now is eating our resources for no reason.

And they are not fooling around, always 4-5 mining frigates for hours or one solo retriever.

I was wondering what was that diamond in the ship name, I thought they were Chinese people.

This comment is for Tranquility.

I heard these are great in Low and Null Sec so this comment is for High Sec only. I hate it.

1. If I attack local NPC mining Ops, I get unfavorable ratings with that "neighbor" that I don't want to be my enemy. Waiting for the Pirate NPC mining Ops. Then I'll be inclined to kick their asses out of my asteroid belt.

2. NPC's don't attack the mining fleets too? That doesn't make any sense. It screws up the whole image of who the NPC miners are getting a free pass with NPC attackers. IMO it ruins the daily EVE story playing before my eyes.

3. NPC Mining fleets have an unfair advantage in ships, modules, everything! I think CCP just enjoys pissing people off. Make them have the same rules we have. Make it realistic!

....and they wonder why our Playstation's are getting more of our gaming time. We don't need "more exciting, vibrant and alive" if it isn't accurate, realistic and believable.

DUMP IT UNTIL YOU FIX IT!

I am happy, so happy! Some great changes!

Was out looking for space girls and there's none out there... Heard some great stuff was happening, so I bought some candy, and flowers and knocked on EvE's door...
Actually bought a new computer too keep up with her, heh. Good to be back.

Baby come back! You can blame it all on me... I was wrong! I can't live without you...

Nice work CCP... New ships, citadels, clone states, skins, and moar PvE content coming.

So this sounds like you have introduced an incremental threat to miners who now compete with NPC corporations. If we kill them they can in turn gunk us; if we ignore them we lose volume in what we can mine. What's the purpose in this?
