Correct me if I’m wrong but this is the way I understand how this Event is suppose to work.
Each Empire has Event sites spawning with Empire specific NPC Industrial transport ships in them which need to be filled with Ore while being protected from region specific Pirate NPC’s.
Players need to form fleets consisting of both mining and combat ships to protect the NPC haulers and fill them up with Ore asap before the site despawns.
There will be 5 different levels of Event sites, each with a capacity limit and in order to advance and access the higher level sites, players need to earn NPC Corporation standing by completing the low level sites first.
Rewards consist of gaining Loyalty Points which are used to get a ‘gift’ can holding a non transferable Empire specific Event ship skin, a T1 ship, some T1 modules and a ship fitting guide, presumably used for the next site level.
Overall the main intention of this Event is to promote group play by encouraging solo players, both new and old, to gain experience at working together in a fleet and eventually partake in PvP fleet ops.
Well I gotta say that all looks great in theory. However due to some players voicing statements of ganking and awoxing players in these site, I feel the intention of this event will ultimately fail.
