I think you’re confused here. Trig invasion is barely scratching ISK faucets, since 75% or so of ISK faucets are in NullSec being farmed by Nullbears and aren’t touched by Trigvasion.
The whole point of Age of Chaos is CCP desperately throwing every twist they can think of at the wall to see what sticks. The problem with that is, the only things CCP seem capable of thinking of is “how can we screw over players next?”.
Blackout? Mass drop in players to lowest levels since the early years of the game.
Trigvasion? Numbers dropping again, despite the boost in activity from Covid.
CCP doesn’t even get the irony of “EVE: It’s the biggest sandbox in the Universe” yet they continually try to force players to play in certain ways to suit CCP. Don’t want to play CCP’s way? No problem, you just forfeit all your investment in the game when they change the rules on you and “yank the carpet out from under players”.
Because, yeah, losing everything you worked years to build is fun, yo! Come’on back for some more of that fun, y’all, so we can smash your holdings again!
All CCP has been doing is showing players you can’t trust CCP, something they’ve been showing us for a decade now.
If I wanted to play a game where the devs tell me what to do and when and where to do it, I’ll go play any of the dozens of games that specialize in that and do it ten times better than CCP does.
(PS: It’s pretty easy to sit mining in -1.0 space and tell high sec people to fight the good fight. Let’s wait until CCP yanks the carpet out from under all your assets and see how you feel about it.)
