I remember some talk about t2 lottery being removed from the game, all scheduled t2 bpos being seeded by Rev 2 and switching completely to invention.

Do I remember wrong or is that still happening?

Good questions!

CCP lotterie information politics was allways a pain and i never could understand that. Like in RL, a lotterie system have to be transparent!

I'm hopeing that before the lottery is ended, all avalible (predictable) T2 bpo's given out in one day in a massive lottery banaza.

I have gotten two offers since Rev started. I actually got one and one I did not get. Clicked wrong and the offer went away.

Still, I have gotten 13 or so BPO's from the lottery and bought two more so I cannot complain.

T2 bpos are pouring out right now. If you watch the predictable patents, you will see that they are going away..... no more lottery soon.

Indeed. Check out the predictable patents for each field and you'll see what's still up for grabs. For example, Caldari Starship Engineering had only Hawk, Buzzard and Cerberus BPOs available as of last night.

Ohh me so happy, over 1000days of research down the drain, that fubar R&D agent never gave me anything! Hope they put him outside station when he runs out of patents so I can blow him up! Evil or Very Mad

Can I have your datacores?

Question: Are all T2 BPO's getting busted to limited runs in the near future?

Just curious, cant find any info on that.

You really want to go and be the one to invent traking links II or Quake ammunition as no one is making it from BPO?

Dubth the will have much market if you need to recover the datacore costs. Quake L at 1000 isk shot?

Right, let's clear a few things up shall we...

I) You may note that my corp mate only asked a 'question' which you'll note can be indicated by the addition of a '?' at the end of a long quizzical sentence.

ques·tion / Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[kwes-chuhn]–noun
1. a sentence in an interrogative form, addressed to someone in order to get information in reply.
2. a problem for discussion or under discussion; a matter for investigation.
3. a matter of some uncertainty or difficulty; problem


II) Scraping together enough meaning from what little grammer there is in your post, i'm guessing your point, if indeed there was one, is that certain T2 items aren't in fact being produced. Well, surely with the removal of the T2 lottery system, as in place currently, that will also remove the lack of BPO's into mainstream hands, and thusly the supply of afformentioned items. If, however, it's 'that' big a deal to you and noone really is producing said items, then think of what a market leader you could be with them.
Well done you.

III) As you've chosen Quake (L) as an example i'll carry on with it. Perhaps a 1000isk price tag is, in fact, an appropriate price for such an item (A highly advanced ammunition charge that'd taken thousands of man hours to design, research and develop and capable of being used in only the latest most technologically advanced weaponary) and not, let's say, for guarding your miners while they lick rocks or for hunting NPC rats in your local system ?
Perhaps yay said highly advanced, and thus presumably costly, ammunition would thusly be reserved for war time engagements and/or important missions.

Well I have heard some rumors about the faction drones dropping datacores in rev 2 which will be a big boost to the t2 industry. Hopefully commander drones will drop data interfaces.Very Happy

SO the lowered cost of invention will help. Also I think that CCP will adjust invention rates for those rarely used items. So we wont be seeing the 1000isk for some t2 frig gun ammo.

Think I spend 10-100 times more isk to replace my ships than I spend for the ammo during their lifetime. t2 ammo costs really don't matter that much in pvp.
And if you are ratting it's only a small part of the bounties that needs to be reinvested. 1000 isk/shot don't matter that much. I'd say we don't need ammo invention at all.

( Ok, I've got the barrage m bpo, which has become quite good with all the sleipnirs, vagabonds and hurricanes around, maybe I'm a bit biased. Laughing )

As far as I know, and Oveur said it a number of times: T2 BPOs will stay the way they are now, they will not be converted into BPCs any time soon.

Invention should keep things going though, as far as keeping prices reasonable.

I wish they wouldn't get rid of the lottery, I haven't gotten my ISK printer yet!

It's like... I dunno... if you got one, congrats, you're good to go until you close your account or the servers close, and everyone else is screwed trying to sc**** by doing the whole (expensive) invention gig, which after all the stuff you need for it, it's not all that profitable.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't the slight bit evnious of the current T2 BPO holders. But like I said, I wish they wouldn't do away with the lottery... I might have gotten lucky someday.

BTW, my 2 Caldari Starship Engineering agents are out of BPO's as of this posting, and my 2 Mechanical Engineering agents are running out of stuff to give out fast. :(

at 1 time i thought like u, i thought 'once u win ANY T2 bpo ur set for evelife!' Sadly this is not the case at all, unless u mebbe win one of the more popular ones like some of the T2 ships (not all T2 ships are great sellers mind u)

But tbh i think they should change the lottery so u actually need to do more to get one (make running R&D agent missions to get R&D points mandatory) this would mean i would have to invest a whole lot more if u want to get a T2 bpo

Anyways still waiting on my T2 gallente ship bpo CCP, the missile bpo was nice but more like an apetizer and i want MORE!!! Very Happy

Thats all exploration content and currently requires investing time and skillpoints into probing and hacking to acquire. I certainly hope they don't just decide to let rogue drones drop the stuff.
