I order to counter these daring moves by the pirate factions, a new channel has been founded.
The Defense Network is up and running.
The Channel is
The Defense Network
Updated on 11/12/207, we’re starting to form some good numbers and we have uncovered many FOBs, however, fleets are going to be planned ahead of time from now on, check the channel motd for the schedule.
It has been hard to form fleets because the lack of rewards. Hopeful, we can find a good fleet doctrine to max isk with low numbers.
With the arms race update, the FOBs received a massive buff! Before it was possible to not to trigger any rats to spawn by having no weapons in the high slots. However this was patched, and the FOB spawn rate was upped, which means it would be easier to run better isk per hour.
With the February release, many reports of a nerf to the defense fleet have come in. This seems to be confirmed by zkill as a spike of FoB losses. However FoBs seem to mainly corp tasks. The special mods that chance drop do not seem to be living up to CCP hopes of their value. This most likely that many do you not use ecm and neuts on their citadels. Since CCP massively upped the spawn rate and locations, the Network has changed focus to just keeping a system SOS list for people being oppressed by roaming rats, also Nestor seem to be the meta of late. o7
