I didn’t see any emerging conduits outside of the invasion systems either.
The emerging conduits in the invasions are named the same as before but now have way more difficult spawns, with damaviks all the way up to leshaks. The payout is less, 1.5mil isk and 100LP compared to about 4mil isk and 300LP previously. Although, red loot drops may be more, but could have been RNG or larger wrecks.
The content is made a little more interesting in that opposing groups will sometimes rep the npc’s. Our group spent almost 5 min trying to take down a Leshak, was pretty impressed how effective 3 augorors can be.
I can say the content is pretty fun at first, even with low rewards. Just can’t say if the content will be able to retain interest in the long run without appropriate payout, we are only human after all…
@Siegfried_Tahl this may be an interesting study if CCP is experimenting if players will do things for rewards vs. altruism, as in payout vs. saving high sec, or some other motivations, as in reference to your topic of why people play.
LOL, you may be right. I did note that the invasion systems seemed to be in pretty out of the way places, at least 15+ jumps to any of them from where I was at. I’ll have to take a look and see if any had significant PvE resources. It would be curious to see how far CCP would go to test the players, if they’ll set their eyes on big mission hubs or such, guess we’ll see what may happen then.
in my mind i love HS. LS and NS and WH are simply different.
May be the “elite” gamer love NS and WH and LS but they love to come in HS for sell and buy. Try to stay in yours WH, NS, LS without come in HS then we will can speak to “save” the HS.
And yes the HS give a lot of isk. There are industrial of NS who are buying many tritanium in … HS. Well buy the trita in LS and NS please not in HS. -> i need trita for my industry in HS.
Please don’t be naive. The number of sociopaths that play this game solely to ruin another person’s day is staggering. You have people who haven’t set foot in High Sec for years except with alts for monthly shopping trips suddenly frothing at the mouth at the chance to “mine salt” and “extract tears” from players they never interact with, don’t care about, and aren’t a threat to them.
