Since another round of nerfs went live this month, affecting both mining and ratting, the next report, for all of April, should prove much more telling about whether the nerfs are having an effect.
There’s no reason to shoot Athanors, if all you are interested in is KM’s. Why RF one to “provoke a fight” if you can’t be sure defenders will bother defending, and miners are virtually guaranteed to appear in space at certain times? Sometimes in Orcas and Rorquals. Hunters are finding a lot more targets, thanks to the change from passive mining.
