I just spoke to someone selling a DG tower in contracts, and they said they had it for over a year.

Did we ever hear about this from CCP?

Watching the outtakes from the Alliance tournament, you'd think CCP was interested in player feedback and addressed concerns.

+1 if you start to dislike CCP to the point you are thinking about not prolonging your subscription.

Pretty obviously being held back so they can introduce faction towers into the RMT store.

It would be pretty hard to deny the possibility now.

Well how do we know they aren't keeping them out of the game until they can sell it on the NeX?

Just relaying things here guys, so I can't speak to the matter in detail.

For those that missed it, in the "Devs Answer Everything" thread, this was addressed already by CCP Greyscale:

Quote:
We're looking at adjusting the supply of these at some point in the reasonably near future, possibly.


So...we are already aware of it. No need to file bug reports.

Faction towers will go back in someday if we can ensure a better distribution of them. That's the issue here, and as others noted, it's exacerbated by high-sec (low-risk) POS, and so on. End of the day it's a distribution method that wasn't working as intended and needs a fix, if one is even possible (hence the "possibly" in Greyscale's reply).

I'm sorry we can't provide more details right now, but that's where this particular thing is at right now. BFF has much bigger fish to fry, I think you'd all agree, so it'll get some attention, but only once other priorities are dealt with. Smile

Thank-You Dropbear for expounding on that, we here in M&C always like to see your blue bars because they rarely result in blue balls.

Can't they just be made into a super rare drop? Officers, a new super rare exploration site or special overseer, Sansha robbed everybody else's R&D and the MOM might drop them in Null only, etc.

Now that we know they're gone (for now) people will start popping them for the lulz more so than ever.

You could just ban them from highsec, if it is too risk-free to have them there.

Wouldn't even be unreasonable that CONCORD bans pirate control towers from highsec.

And why the **** did this take a year and a half and a 7 page thread spanning 2 months to get an answer out of you?!

I fail to see why distribution is even a problem. The main use of these towers in my experience is for the reduced fuel consumption. The extra hitpoints are nice but if an attacking force gets past the defenses its going to blow up anyway. Shouldn't all the research towers be in highsec anyway so naturally all the Gurista towers would migrate to highsec as well Very Happy.
