Powerplay Question about Exploited System and how to turn it.

I am right now sitting at Polansky City in a Li Yong-Rui exploited system. I was wondering if there was anyway as an independent pilot to turn the system into a contested system or any other mode so it isn't an exploited system. Is it possible to turn an exploited system as an independent pilot?

No.
 
An exploited system is one that is within 20ly of a power's control system. If you want to change that to contested, you need to get another power to expand into a system close enough for the exploitation sphere to overlap. To get rid of the control system, you'll need to push LYR into turmoil. It takes a lot of people a lot of effort to do either of those things.
 
How does a PP exploit, contest or retreat (from) a system?

I read what Villeruff wrote, except does PP expand or retreat differently to minor factions?

For instance, a faction goes into Expansion when a controlled system's influence is > 75% and Retreats when its influence goes below 3% in a foreign system.
 
I read again but still don't know what's the trigger for PP expansion or retreat.
Powerplay is not the same as the BGS.

In Powerplay you have 'bubbles' that have a central control system and a bubble of exploited systems around it. When these bubbles overlap the overlapping area becomes contested if each bubble belongs to different powers. Contested systems do not generate CC (command capital). The same holds true for overlaps within the same powers territory (loss of CC).

Sometimes powers with lots of CC do this to drain another power of CC. This is Weaponized Expansion.

To force a power to lose bubbles you need to undermine them, lowering CC to a point where the power cannot afford to keep the systems they control. Generally the more distant go first.

You have to be pledged to undermine a power.

As an independent pilot you can 'flip' systems instead though. Each power is strong or weak against certain government types. If enough exploited systems in a bubble swap to either a favourable or unfavourable government the the amount needed to fortify goes up or down. So a neutral starting trigger (for example) can be 5000, with favourable being 2500 and unfavourable being 7500.

By making more work to do, you raise the chances (sometimes) that another power cannot fortify everything and make them more vulnerable.

How does a PP overlap into another's Exploited system to make it Contested?

Really? You don't like that 15% discount you're getting on ships / modules and ultimately, your re-buy? Can't please everyone, I guess...
 
to make a power drop a specific system, you will likely need to undermine 50+ systems (so about a million merits) and hope they don't fort the system you want them to lose - and not have turmoiled systems with higher upkeep in turmoil, and hope they don't just fortify their way out of turmoil (so another million merits for a second week), and then that they don't self-snipe to lose systems they want to lose. In other words, you will need a group of 50 people or so to do a poopoo-ton of work for 2 or 3 weeks, and maybe more. Or, Join that power, join their discord, and make a bunch of friends and be happy that your system is exploited by all your mates ;)
