    Thargoid Attacks: Where, When and What you can do about it

    Targets this week : Dulerce, Li Tzicnii and Kareco

    Both systems saved this week

    Hydra in Celaeno, also Merope.

    Eagle Eye targets this week:

    EE1 aries dark region hr w c1 1 8c
    * Dulerce Wiener Terminal
    * Pleiades Sector LN-T c3-4 Crashed Scout
    EE2 hip 16704 5a
    * Li Tzicnii - Ramelli Terminal
    * HIP 19284 - Site 94 - Attacked Settlement
    EE3 mel 22 sector jc v d2 19 4b
    * Kareco Brill Station
    * Pleiades Sector AB-W b2-4 - Lowell Class WOF-237 near 9
    EE4 aries dark region hr w c1 1 8c
    * Duplicate EE1
    EE5 hip 16704 5a
    * Duplicate EE2
    EE6 mel 22 sector jc v d2 19 4b
    * Duplicate EE3


    Systems are saved by kills in the target systems- each kill counts the same, so a Scout is as useful as an Interceptor. Bonds do not matter.

    Locations of the Aegis megaships Acropolis and Vanguard.

    * NHSS will be found in systems within 10 Ly of target, these are not important.

    I spent last week in HIP 21559, and I'm in Mentor right now. I already have approx. 100 kills here, so I'll move over to Lungini right now. I think I'll start tracking my kills, so I can divide my time equally between systems if necessary.

    I am already supporting Lungini becouse I know most players will focus Mentor. I wanna know if it's possible to defend both systems. I have a question. If we for example are killing Thargoids in different system but cash our combat bounds in Lungini will that help the fight?

    I will move over to Lungini then too. I've not yet seen any Massacre Thargoid missions or the Aegis ships in Mentor yet, I had sort of assumed both of these things would also be in systems with heavy Thargoid presence?

    I know this is probably impossible to figure out, but are you thinking that it's total number of any Thargoids killed in system, or Total bond value killed, or some other metric that means "This system has done enough not to be attacked"?

    Interesting question. One way to find out would be to chose one system in which the bonds are directly cashed in, and the other system will have only the kill, but the bonds should be cashed in in another system.

    I've been working in Lunguni since yesterday - will continue today.

    That is indeed the question. Although it's fun to try to figure this out without fdev help (nice work there @Factabulous!), it would be nice to have an in-game way of monitoring support and progress.

    I've moved my Chieftain to Lunguni, hope to collect some Cyclops' scalps there.

    Jesus holy mother they're only 140ly away from Jamerson Memorial. I'm calling it now that the 3 superpower home systems are going to be attacked and the permit locks on them lifted for the support effort.

    Most important question is , are there any interceptors there or system is filled with scouts only like Huevang De ?

    For now only scouts.

    For what it's worth,it seems like the strategy for Irandan/Hip 21559 worked.Im doing evac missions over in Irandan and whilst the presence of nhss is still there,it seems quite sparse.With nobody actively engaging them they're just flying about aimlessly,although i have come across a few wreckage sites.No signs of vitriolics except on the station.
    I like the proposal although the goal of 50/50 seems perhaps a little optimistic given the unknown nature of the threat we face.No point losing two stations through overconfidence.
    I would suggest a more modest goal of 70/30 in favour of the more populous system

    If you go into a threat 6 in Mentor there's a chance it will be 4 scouts and a Cyclops. I imagine threat 7 is similar for a Basilisk, although I haven't tried.

    Well, it's worth a try. If both systems go down, then we can do something like 70/30 next week.

    If both go down Sol might be next and I don't care how much people hate the Federation SOL IS EVERYONE'S HOME SYSTEM! So if Sol is on the list for attack that deserves 100% effort.
