Sorry for the TLDR people.
Since the game went free to play I have noticed a very substantial drop in Dead-space and implant loot. I hold a lot of the dead space loot in inventory. I had nothing but a suspicion that the loot was being controlled and limited until the rogue drone event. It is clear in the rogue drone event that it is impossible to get duplicate copies of blue prints and skins. I login my second toon and when running the site, I make sure to kill and loot the drone hive mind (or what ever its called) with the second toon in order to receive blueprints/skins. If I kill the drone hive mind with the second toon but loot with my main I never get anything but salvage.
I’m not mad, I am a little bit disappointed because now there is no risk to reward goal. I go out into dead-space or low-sec and run a site and I don’t get any loot I don’t already have. I ran 112 rogue sites in the last 2 weeks and 42 scout outposts and 11 Guristas Hallucinogen Supply sites. It seems the only way to get duplicates is PVP loot but even that may have been changed. Again I am not mad this has just been a long term investigation I have conducted still in many ways not absolute (except in the event of blueprint copies and skins). One thing I am not sure of is if you sell the dead-space or implant how long it takes for you to be able to loot another. In the case of the blueprint copies and skins I sold a skin and have not received another in 100+ tries.
In addition, I have conducted 15 or so interviews with other vet players and they are drawing the same conclusions.
Would be great if you could respond and explain why the change or let me know how my metric is wrong… This seems to contradict the sandbox model of game play and looking a little bit like controlling how wealthy a single toon can become running sites.
