Recently, I committed my first heist of a Reserve Bank ESS. Total payout was around 1.4 billion ISK for 15 minutes of my time.
The challenge is, how many ESS can High Sec Gankers raid in only the Cache region within a week?
The Risk vs Reward is there.
Raiding an ESS takes real skill in first skip jacking into Null 40 to 50 jumps from the intended system, jumping a few systems at time and then jack skipping again, hoping you land closer once the timer has expired.
Then comes the Lambda Calculus of, I know there are x number of pilots in system or systems x1,x2,x3,x4 jumps away where the average number of pilots in each system is x based on 30 minutes as well as x number of pilots docked in station while adding in x number of jumps between myself and all possible and likely directions of attack, which is Lambda Calculus of, knowing certain random variables of input will exist based on the input that then either return a three tier results of : 1. raiding the Reserve Bank in it’s entirety or varying percentages thereof while maintaining at least a 500 million payout and nothing less. 2. Engaging Sov Holder defense ships and either winning or losing. 3 Skip Jacking back into Triglavian and then Known space with a cargo hold full of SCC bonds, a cargo hold full of holes, or nothing at all.
Please clarify: Do you pay the 1.4b to the ganker with the most raids in Cache? So they have something to gain? Or is this the kind of “Challenge” where you go to some random dude and tell him to do something stupid just to waste his time and mock him if he is not interested?
Why? Because you like working for free? CCP can get rid of bots with two web interface button presses. There’s a reason why they’re being kept around. You actually become CCP’s enemy when you interfere with them.
It is a great idea and CCP should implement it. High sec deployment of ESS that takes 100% of all anom, incursion, and mission bounties paid in the system. If they are defended you get 200% payout of LP and 125% of rat bounties. If not you get nothing.
