Their blueprints stopped being seeded at least an expansion ago with nary a word in the patch notes. I've heard rumors that it was a bug and supposed to be fixed, but it clearly hasn't been. Is this intentional on the part of CCP? Are we going to have to pay Aurum in the future for faction POS stuff as has been talked about? Is this another feature that CCP took out (like ship fittings) and plans to charge us to use when it's reintroduced? Or is it just another bug that frankly should have been fixed a helluva long time ago?

/sarcasm on
It's true, they are out to get you but they're too incompetent to finish the job.
/sarcasm off


However... I do agree that whatever the reason is under the sun, faction towers need to be back in the game, I miss them as well.

What? Just the other day I jumped into a C1 wormhole with 40+ faction towers on scan being used for moon goo refining LOLs.

They're still in game just no more are being created.

And to the OP, because of aur. It's safe to assume that anything CCP does now is because of aur.

This. I have neither personally seen nor heard of mates getting any faction POS tower or module BPC drops since the Tyrannis expansion in June of 2010 -- across multiple null-sec regions. The adjustment was made whether CCP knows it or not.

Pricing for existing goods has risen accordingly and CCP has yet another significant ISK sink to promote PLEX purchases. Working as intended. Unfortunately.

Market transactions aren't an ISK sink. They just shift money around. The market tax is a sink, but it's not a significant one.


Cripes, nobody around here understands what an ISK sink is.

Back to the point: What's the deal with faction POS structures?

CCP Greyscale gave us the soon answer, that's about as much as I think we'll get until the day it actually shows up in the patch notes or they mysteriously start dropping from sites again after an extended downtime.

Not sure if this is working as intended, but the prices are no ISK sink, since the money paid on contracts is not removed from the game, but always ends up in the pockets of another player.

they were intentionally removed from the loot tables some time ago.

Expect them to reappear in the nex store before long as a non game-breaking item.

Eve really needs bigger Isk Sinks. Something Needs to be Done to Increase the Value of LP Wich is Currently Trading at a Lot less than 500 isk per LP. This Might Be the solution in one form or another.

They'll be available on NeX soon enough.
