Drifter Incursion Communities?

I was wondering are there any public communities that regularly run drifter incursions similar how WTM and TVP do regular incursions?

I'm possibly not quite up-to-date and would be interested about the current status. But I haven't seen any Drifter Incursions since almost a year and the last thing I know is that they have been suspended due to performance issues (August 2015) and then later again (I think in January 2016) because they didn't work as intended.

Interesting.

I thought it was because players figured out that you could run them in cheap destroyers and YOLO a couple of frigates to win. Of course, that was not intended...plus the fact the incursion community mostly avoided it due to 'not so great' rewards.

Go figure.

There were some groups until drifter incursions were killed off. They're no longer around.

Using an exploit it was possible to make a lot more than regular incursions. The regular incursion groups were too risk averse to try anything requiring theorycrafting something for themselves.

It's possible that you are right and this was the real reason (or what PopplerRo above says). I cannot tell. Somehow it became silent around Drifter Incursions. I can't find any conclusive statement if they are working on improving them (wouldn't that make sense after they invested quite some time to design and create them and the incursion descriptions are still there in the in-game journal?) or if they've abandoned them as hopeless. But what I can say for sure - according to the last o7 show - is that they are working on new fireworks! What?
