Yesterday, CCP updated the patch. With this patch update, Triglavs are now more aggressive and hostile, in particular to what is happening at Triglavian Minor Victory systems.
Previously, these systems pose no threat to all capsuleers, either pro-Edencom/Kybernauts/neutral capsuleers. When Triglavian forces won these systems, Emerging Conduits still spawn afterwards with irregular spawns time to time. There are no large-scale roaming fleets or any guns. These systems also remained high-sec (or low sec, depending on what status they were before invasion) in contrast to those that escalated to Liminality stage.
However, in the last 12hrs, reports have come out from Capsuleers in Triglavian Minor Victory systems of having trouble getting out of the system without getting blown or podded by Trigs. Undocking from their station is futile with the appearance of Entropic Disintegrator Werpost, which are essentially Triglavian sentry guns. These have appeared in stations, structures and gates preventing safe passage of capsuleers. To add to that threat, all-Hospodar-ranked roaming fleets regularly spawn and patrol these systems. Reports came in from Aldik, Gammel, and Arraron of these cases were capsuleers are unknowngly flying into the system and out, losing ships caught in the hands of the Trigs. Comparatively, these systems has not fallen to low-sec/null-sec status as what those systems that progressed to Liminality stage did. CONCORD and Faction police presence are still in invaded hi-sec systems, however, there is no NPC-NPC interaction between the two forces observed.
In response to these calls, Edencom Defense Initiative and its volunteer capsuleers mobilized a fleet to help evacuate capsuleers in need of help. The Werpost sentry guns were taken down by the Pro-Edencom fleet and Triglavian roaming fleets were battled with much needed help from logis. These actions only bought time for stranded capsuleers to fly out of the system safely with their valuable assets to safety. Note however, these systems are “Minor Trig " Victories.” Trigs will continue to spawn here with emerging conduits. Whether this new threat will persist remains to be seen. Right now, overnight after downtime and CCP’s latest patch update, these systems have gone from relative safety to very dangerous systems.
In these, I advise everyone who don’t want to get caught in the Trigs to AVOID Minor Triglavian Victory Systems. Consider evacuating assets from these systems till the Triglavian invasion is over. For short, the Triglavian menace in the Minor Triglavian Victory Systems has gotten more aggressive and hostile. Over 100 BIL ISKs have been, so far, lost to the Werpost guns, according to zKillboard.
