Over the last months the Arataka Research Consortium has shifted their focus heavily on the ever escalating and troubling Triglavian presence in New Eden. While regular fleets run by ARC were more hands-on and practical, several researcher and explorers are working at the scientific side of things as well.
As a working result we introduce the Triglavian Primer as a series of publications on Triglavian research topics. The first two issues are dealing with the two matters mentioned above: fleet tactics against Triglavian invasions and an overview of present major research topics.
The Triglavian Primer: Exposition of Missing Knowledge is meant to be an introduction to the current Triglavian related events with focus on what scientific challenges we face, what we know, and what we do not know. It tries to systematize knowledge we have - and lack – and is meant to inspire further research by others.
The Triglavian Primer: Empire Proving Grounds gives some insight into ARC fleet composition and tactics as well as some analysis gleaned from numerous battles on conduit and World Ark sites.
We are honored by the dedicated work of the first contributing authors, namely DutchGunner, Aria Jenneth, and Ilm Gaterau, who made the first issues possible. I also want to thank those who supported the effort in other ways – or are already working on the next topics.
The Triglavian Primer aims at informing those who are new to the topic but also to inspire others to join Triglavian research efforts or share already existing knowledge. For example, ARC has decided to shift the attention especially to the sun manipulations by Triglavian hands and the Stellar Accelerator in particular. This seems to be one of the most pressing issues at hand.
