Really? Cool, Ima go get me a tech moon! Think a small corp or one-man operation can pull that off?


Minimum effort - only after you've built up a strong fleet, taken the moon away from someone else, built your own defensive mining POS, and then held the space or at least been able to defend the POS long term. Some of that takes effort on a scale slightly above "minimal".


Clearly you don't know how OPEC works and what a non aggression act stands for.


Guys, this is about FW. Please leave the tech debate out of this.

Clearly there was no effort involved in establishing that either.

Quick note for those who are defensive plexing across the warzones right now. As part of the patch today we took every system that had more than 4000 VPs worth of vulnerability (>133%) and set them to 4000 VPs.

We are planning to implement a cap on the number of VPs past vulnerable a system can collect, but that was not ready to deploy quite yet.

What does that mean? Are some systems still over 200% vulnerable? Please expand.

Seems to mean that systems have a cap of 133% of vulnerable.

As of the server starting, we ensured that no system was over 133% vulnerable. There's no cap at this time, but if you offensive plex one of those systems past 133% you won't get any reward for doing so.

TY.

I hope yall lower the cap even more in the future. 133% seems high to me. I see no reason for a buffer more than 10%. That should be more than enough time/buffer to be able to flip a system once made vulnerable. I believe this could actually foster more fights because once someone gets near 100% it would be time to decide to form up a bunker busting / defending fleet or not. If the bunker is not taken out than the defender should be able to plex it down without having to grind down a high percentage. Just my two cents.

Thanks again for all yalls hard work on factional warfare. I am looking forward to dust being added to the mix.

So you reset everything to 133%, and after that the systems can still be "overplexed" past 133% ?

no one is going to farm anything.

example: tier 1 medium gives 8250 lp, and some of those were so hard to kill rats that you hardly managed to kill all rats before new ones spaned so now it takes about 30min to cap, and if lp is 500isk/ lp you make 8,3m isk / hour farming those plexes.

are you going to farm?

It looks like for the moment yes, but with no reward for it what would be the point?

Interestingly Amarr seem to have tripled the amount of systems they control, and Minmatar have dropped from nearly Tier 5 to just barely holding onto Tier 3 in a few hours time.

If I understand right, they can be overplexed further, but there's no LP reward for it anymore. Of course, there could be strategic reasons to overplex even if there's no LP in it.

I chalk this up under another favour for Gallente/Minmatar that CCP likes to throw at them. But I understand by reading between the lines that your backside is on the line because of the FW changes screwed up the economy so you are getting desperate.

It is also fine that you wreck FW completely right before you deploy Dust, which makes it's existence completely irrelevant for FW in general because nobody will really bother plexing anymore.

Well, maybe there's no LP reward, but if you're strategically minded, and you know a system that your militia wants to flip but that the bunker-bashers can't get to right away ... one of those things where you take one for the team, you know?
