What I don't understand is why a CCP dev has the time to go around making cute little posts in meaningless threads trying to be funny but wont come in here and quell the masses by explaining what, if anything, is going on. Thats what ****es me off about this game recently, the disconnect between the dev's and players.

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this. It seems that the amount of cans now spawning in the high security Radar sites has been drastically reduced compared to how it was before the bug/fix.

Used to find a lot of Radar sites with 3 to 5 cans, every once in a while would find a really tough site to lock which would have 1 or 2 cans. Now it's easy to find and lock onto sites with 1 to 3 cans per site. Mainly finding a lot with 1 or 2 cans, really rare to find 3 and I haven't seen any radar sites with more than 3 cans since the 'Exploration Spawn Bug/Fix' ordeal.

It seems the Nerf Bat also must have hit the loot table as well.

Just wondering.

High sec, Tash-Murkon, Sansha, yesterday I had 3 or 4 Radars, I remember Virus Test site had 4 cans w/ 20m of decryptors, 2x Mainframes with 2 cans ea with ~5m loot ea, and something else with 3 or 4 cans. Friday was similar except I also had a Naval Shipyard with 2x Info Shards and 2x Com Towers ~10m loot

I ran some high sec systems around Jita last night to test out a new ship, and scanned 2 Radar sites after 6 systems.... So arguably the most populated area of the game has (potentially) a better chance to spawn Radar than low sec.... Kinda defeats the object of EXPLORING!


Yeah your 6 system sample definitely warrants such a definitive conclusion.


Trolling?

I said nothing about definitive proof. But its a fair assumption to make seeing as the 60+ systems I scanned and recorded gave such small results, where 6 high sec systems gave far better.

When you're talking about statistical analysis, there really are no fair assumptions when dealing with such an insignificant sample.

Any of you found any combat or ded sites yesterday/ today? Got a strange feeling again, but probably it might only be me.

So is this going to be the standing thread for "oh god I didn't get any sites in my 5 system route, something is clearly broken" complaints?

If so, I'm all for it actually. Keep the stupidity consolidated. I like this plan.

I hit a Reinvigoration Camp and a Monastery in the past 2 days.

Well actually.. I haven't found a Sansha 6/10 in a while now (since the fix actually). I mostly find 8/10s. No 7/10 since the fix either.

Then i looked at contracts for Centum A-Type Energized Adaptive Nano Membranes and was shocked to see them at 1 billion. They were at around 650-700 million for the last 6 months. Well, i actually haven't monitored the price for those very regularly in the last month but it seems to me that this may be related to less 6/10s overall (or maybe the constant supercap losses in geminate finally drive the price up YARRRR!!).

I think the Sansha 8/10 has a way higher chance to spawn than 6/10 and 7/10s.
Just an observation on my part so feel free to comment.

On a second thought.. Maybe people are afraid of those mysterious new 8/10s and most just don't run them. So the 8/10s end up clustering all over the place and the price increase of a-type EANMs is actually the supercap fights fault.

That brings me to this question:
How is the spawn mechanic? Is there a fixed number of DED plexes that can be active in a region? So, let's say, if there are only 8/10s around and they are not being run will they prevent 6/10s from spawning? That may actually make more sense than another bug Embarassed.

I've been a avid explorer for years and I can say high sec is back to normal but low sec I have been scanning since the last patch and I really find nothing I've been doing about 20 systems a night and once in a blue moon I find a annex or minor, hardly any radars and 6/10 seems to be no where to be found. I really think ccp should give a huge boost to low sec exploration. Really I would like to see increase of sites per region for high/low/null as these days there are much more explorers out there.

I don't care if it drives prices down a bit, just as long as I find something after 3 hours of scanning that is worth doing and not get hosed on the drop. I did some math and sadly running level 4's will net me more isk if I spent the same amount of time running mission as I do exploring. I do predominantly high and low sec so to me the rewards need adjustment.

I think scanning in High Sec does that...I found a lot of sites where I scan.
