So I live in Null Sec, middle of no where.
The event I look at about every 2 or 3 days and just hang my head.

For a start I'm a pure combat pilot, I have no mining skills of note at all, actually here is the entire list:
Mining - 4
I can't even fly a mining frigate.

I constantly have 2 mining missions for Ore's that while easy to mine, I could never mine that much of in 3 days especially with my ship choices and the reward probably not worth the risk.

Second, I blow up Serpentis Ships on a daily basis, yet nothing I have destroyed counts for the event. All the sites are located in High, Mid, and Low sec space, places I rarely venture unless we are there to blow people, not Rats, to little bits of space debris.

This much said, the event has been pointless for us out here in Null Sec and we'd like our daily 10K Skill Points back please unless you are going to allow us to tailor said events in the future to our pilot skills, location, and capabilities.

Where I put mine, in your hand, now wash your face with it.

Point is, it seems really dumb to punish us for not playing by the rules.

Would much rather have my 10K SP a day at least or ya know maybe we do missions based on our choice?

Actually you get the Serpentis shipyard in 0.0, like any other player. And that is the recurrent mission.
For the other missions you have to hunt the locations down, like any other player.
In reality most of the other missions are only useless bait.
My second account has spent about 3 hours/day hunting locations in the background in high sec while I was doing stuff in 0.0. With a nightmare e FOF missiles he can make them without the need to check him constantly.
After 30 days he has made little more than 27K points.
He has started a lot of the secondary missions but often he hasn't found the right sites to complete them in time.
Even with the Serpentis shipyards there where times whne he had to jump trough 10 systems before finding one.

About 7.5 minutes for site. 500 points for 5 missions, a target of 50.000 points = 3.750 minute = 62, 5 hours without the time to find the sites.
Add the time to find them 8sometime you get 3 in a system, but often you have to move trough several system to find one) and you can add another 7.5 minutes to each site.

In practice about 120 hours in 40 days. Either you are a dedicated guy that can make the sites faster than me (there is people that can do that) or you will not get the higher prize.

I just returned to the game . Did not even know what to look for for most of the event. Then the missions had objectives that hardly appeared where I was active. All around this event was pretty much a fail for me.
