How orca miners are going to Plex their accounts after the mining changes?

idk, i don’t get into mining anymore, i used to… but when i see “all” i tend to think that means all of them

The problem you all have is this. Quoting this without the context is very misleading. If you quote the whole paragraph

“Our goal with Barges and Exhumers is to create meaningful choice between survivability, yield, and ore hold. However, we understand that some of these ships are not survivable enough. To that end we’re working closely with the CSM to define the best approach, but our end goal is to significantly increase the EHP of all barges and all exhumers as well as their mining yield .”

From that we can see this is something they are currently working on and haven’t finalised. If they haven’t finalised it………then it can’t be on SISI can it? Therefore testing and comparing to the quote is pointless until they update the post with their intention and also update SISI.

Come on guys. Read stuff before raising your blood pressure

I hope Orca miners become active players within the community. But I fear they’ll just be looking at something else to substitute their AFK business. In that case, I hope they leave for good. They are of no added value.

ok, you meant the 1hardener is only on sisi.

because 63k EHP is on the low side on TQ. I have 70k with that fit . The reason I said

Calm down

Yea your fit for me on tq is 63k. But I currently lost my omega status so that’s probably why. But my sisi is still omega

so ATM the procurer lost 20k EHP on that fit. So it’s not gained “significant increase” yet

yea after going back omega on tq, your fit is 71k

The addition of a third low slot to the Procurer means a hull tank will become better.

My mining alt gets 80k EHP in that fit, if you have level 5 skills you may get a bit more. Or if you skip the mid slots for scram web, you still have 71k EHP which isn’t bad.

My main issue with the Procurer is how it went from the most agile barge to the absolute slowest aligning barge of them all. 15 seconds align time?! The Procurer is supposed to be good in combat, why is the Covetor the fastest aligning barge now? It makes no sense to me.

Sell the Orca. :slight_smile:

I think a lot y’alls are being conned by wanting to tank the Proc. Its so cheap, its pretty much disposable.

Ships must never be lost. Losses must be avoided at all costs. Wallet balance must never go down, only up. If your ship explodes and you have to buy a new one, you lose the game.

Cool, so Catalysts that explode should repawn in their owner’s bays.

Or even better, in their manufacturer’s bays.

Simple: like the rest of us.

If the proc becomes even more tankier than it is now, then it needs some drawback. The proc becomes less agile and as consequence it can be bumped easily from the ice belt.

It’s less tanky than it is now, and the lack of agility is more likely an oversight by CCP as result of doubling the mass.

It’s radio silence after that. My bet is their position is unchanged. The position and reasoning as presented by Eyjo, are as valid today as back then. It makes sense to intervene.
