the even in HS (did not check out) consisted in a site (edencom production facility) that is shown as a combat anomly in the probe window.
The site warpin room (DR0) contains one stargate that limits the access to the next room to “combat and attack battlecruisers”. Once warped to, a beacon appears in space and is visible system wide, telling people which site are already started. This beacon remains for… dunno. I guess 5 minute after site despawns ?
The room 1 (DR1) contains several structures (worthless), a beacon. After the time for a MTU to be deployed, first wave lands.
Each wave consists in 0-2 cruisers, 1-4 destroyers, and 1-5 frigates (not sure of exact numbers), and “latecomers” 1-2 frigates/destroyers. I think I reached up to 8 rats at the same time.
latecomers spawns after a small delay ? and/or when initial wave is reduced to 2 ships ? dunno. When it’s triggered+ a small delay, the next wave spawns. I think it’s total 4 waves + vovoid wave, which contains 1 vovoid damavik, one vovoid radima, and one vovoid vedmak. The radima warps off when the vedmak is killed so point it.

as you can see, rats are weak to thermal. Still the final wave is 57k EHP, and a wave of 1.5 cruiser, 2 kikis, 3 damaviks is also
4,9×3+6,5×2+24,4×1,5 = 64.3k EHP
Making a 4-waves site (+vovoid) total 314k EHP.
AFAIK almost each wave had web, scram, many had neuts, damper, weapon disruptors. The rats behavior was to attack drones, move and target as a pack, and warp on-grid to catch people further than 30km off.
Since you are webbed, scrammed, and the rats warp on grid to catch you close, You can’t kite. Since the rats contain small frigates that orbit you with 50 tracking, you need application. webs are best since rats orbit you 10km, grappler too… but you can’t fit them.
You don’t need huge tank, however you get hard neuted on last wave, and/or when there are 2 neuting cr +neuting frig/ds.
There is no incentive to play as a group. I tried with two alts, and I was going faster with the two alts in different sites.
The easiest I found was to use double web drekavac, with a point for the vovoid radima. drones were killed too fast so I had hobs in hangar but did not use them.
The reward was only the loot (no isk bounty). Part of this loot was red loot, so isk faucet.
Here is the loot for 30 sites that I did alone.
average red loot was 102 db so 97k*102 = 9M8 raw isk gain per site.
I tried drake, drake navy. I finally opted for drekavac. I had one route to follow, with several staging to drop the loot each time I am in a staging system.

I found it boring.
- meager loot. I found TWO accelerators out of 30 sites, which means 7% loot of them. Actually I found more but had not decided to take notes or was not alone in site. Yet that’s the approximate rate of loot I had. Most of the time I had nothing.
- huge EHP per site. This means you take ages to grind those EHP down. zzZZzz.
- scrambled+webbed+warping rats. That means you can’t kite, you can’t try anything. You are stuck here. Less choices = less interesting gameplay.
- consumable+limited loot. I mean glamourex. Either you think it’s bad, and just remove it. Or you think it’s not bad, and don’t make it expire. Anyhow expiring stuff is just bad in general, don’t do that.
- difficult to find sites. Those are long to do, you have to wait a lot, and then you need to travel a lot in a BC. zzZZzz. At least several sites before were doable in frig/destroyer so you could pick some fast things. Here even with hyperspatial rigs, it took ages…
What could have been done to improve
- Limit to 2 waves. Even one wave + vovoid would be already over 100k EHP.
- no warping rats unless over 200km(instead of 30 like now). This would have made the MJD of BC useful somehow.
- remove the drops that are limited in time.
- add mining roids that are required for bps, so that anybody could find a correct activity. Small amount of roids.
- reduce respawn delay.
- add event-specific loot (can be module, implant, boosters specific to that event)
