I will double down on what others have said. I've looked near their corporate offices in various locations (Minmatar space) and the spawn rate seems to be very low. I found several instances of Sleepers, but no miners.

was looking all over for these and could not find any even with several other members of my alliance spread out all over. even looked in a system that had 3 stations from a spawning corp :/. if these are supposed to add activity and not just be a rare site the spawns need to be upped



EDIT:


or is this just a similar issue with anoms on sisi and TQ will see much more activity?

ive seen some others fight the npc spawns but i cant seem to find one because ive been looking for more than an hour and havent seen one. you need to increase the spawn rate because if its like this on the main server its going to take like 10 times longer find even one of em

Do these only spawn in a system with a guristas outpost or any system that normally spawns guristas rats?

Looks like the NPC support stops assisting the NPC miners if the player has left and returned 3 times.

I was in Slays and attacked a Ducia Foundry group several times. The first time I lost my ship, the second time I warped off. And when I returned the 3rd time there was a lone skiff mining and after attacking it nothing came to defend it.

The first two times the skiffs all warped off. The second time, there was only one skiff in the belt.

Just happened in Slays VI-2

Cloaking is the closest thing to a "Pause Game" button one can get while in space.

Support better localization for the Japanese Community.

After ~250 belts in Guristas space, no mining fleets.

Will post again after searching the remaining 2/3rd of the entire region.

would it be possible to make it so rewards don't scale but response fleets do? that way you can't game the system to get more loot but the npcs can stand a chance if you warp in with a carrier. If not then make them act more like players and not show up if it is a fight they can't win

But once again CCP PLEASE have some of these cause FACTION standing hits.


Worst idea I've heard in a while. "Make nullsec ratting content kill highsec faction standing" GTFO.

Still hoping to hear whether or not drone regions will get any mining fleets, or if we're just getting the shaft.


If they don't have a Faction Standing hit then they become a joke target, shoot them all the time, corp standing hits do nothing.

Oh and according to the Vegas stream, you are getting the shaft.



Except that they react based on corp standings. So you turn up in belt, and before you do _anything_, a response fleet is going after you. (if you have bad corp standings)


The standing change is so low you would need to have attacked hundreds of these ops for it to matter.

The best place to find the high-sec mining ops is near the stations of those corps running them. The list of high-sec corps with mining ops are >
  • Amarr: Ducia Foundry
  • Amarr: Joint Harvesting
  • Amarr: HZO Refinery
  • Caldari: Deep Core Mining Inc.
  • Caldari: Poksu Mineral Group
  • Caldari: Minedrill
  • Gallente: Astral Mining Inc.
  • Gallente: Material Acquisition
  • Gallente: Allotek Industries
  • Minmatar: Minmatar Mining Corporation
  • Minmatar: Vherokior Tribe
  • Minmatar: Thukker Mix

As of today on Sisi:
  • You'll be-able to see the Mining Ops on your directional scanner, or probe them down.
  • We've altered the coloration of the MIning Ops NPC standings bracket coloration to better follow player overview standards:
Red/Orage = Hostile
White = Neutral
Light Blue/Dark Blue = Friendly

CCP are you mad? If it was decided for EVE to become free-to-play, it is not the reason for using the worst practices of free-to-play.


This is simply a step of; Instead of dropping all items inside the wreck, they will be inside a box. You can then open it or sell it to someone else, perhaps for a higher price of the contents. A gamble at the discretion of whoever opens the box. There is nothing else involved in this process.


Will we need to purchase keys to unlock these boxes? Twisted
