    Grind, grind,,, and more grind....at least the "grind-o-meter" has been recalibrated to better reflect the slower-than-expected progress in our....ahh....grind

    Some stations get attacked. Is this just random (why is it always in groups of three)? Is there cause and effect or do Frontier just make the decision of which stations and when?

    What causes a station to switch from attacked state to repair state? Is there cause and effect, is it after a fixed time or do Frontier make the decision? Is it possible for an attacked station to remain in attacked state? If not, unless new stations keep getting attacked (how/when? see previous point) then might we get to a time where there are no longer any attacked stations for players (who haven't yet witnessed this) to see?

    What happens if we don't bother contributing to the repair state stations? How much do we care? What's our incentive to repair them?

    So many questions. Have I missed a Cannon Science thread with the answers?
    I hope that I'm wrong but so far the flow seems to go something like this;-

    1. On the Thursday, every week three systems are attacked (Although it didn't happen over Christmas).
    2. There is a week to evacuate people.
    3. The station automatically moves to repair after a week
    4. Station is out of action until repaired
    5. Rinse and repeat until the stations get closer to the bubble.


    The upshot being that if we want to keep the Thargoids away from the bubble, then we have to get the stations up and running again where the AGEIS Stations get hit again and again but it stops the Thargoid advance.

    I am hoping that we do get a chance at station defence at some point.

    Station defence for Aegis?

    Never for me, but other one would be welcome, f.e. Obsidian Orbital

    OK, so here's one ... do we actually want to keep the Thargoids away from the bubble? If this was real then, for the sake of our lives, our loved ones and our way of life ... sure ... but it's a game and personally I'd be really interested to see Galileo station in Sol in flames. Is that wrong?

    At the rate they're hitting AEGIS stations, you'll probably get your wish.

    Still don't think AEGIS are the same as INRA though.

    Thanks for the update

    Good news! This reminds of a Cerberus Plague, where we had to get together and concentrate our efforts on just one of many affected stations to be able to get them back up and running.

    Great stuff. I am thinking of organising a focused long-term action of repairing one of the affected stations. Definitely NOT one controlled by Aegis though

    I will wait until you repair it and will use it with pleasure. I promise to mention your group in my Sundays prays

    Which effectively means they will stay in disrepair forever. Or until you simply handwaive things.
    The required amount is way more than a typical CG - and trading CGs in Pleiades never been popular.

    Are you sure you want them repaired? Aegis is probably just a front for INRA. The Thargoids could have destroyed those stations but only disabled them. That's a political statement right there

    Maybe if we dont repair them they'll come back and finish the job.
