The last post I see from Daedalus was him complaining that a run had left him just 20 samples short of the total, so if he isn’t finished yet it’s very close.

Update on the Ascension Light - we have 2261 samples stored so far. Not too bad so far.

Wonderful; thank you! All updated here, and all of this puts us very nicely ahead.

Finally M. Leigong loses those three Matrix systems which have been blocking its Peripheral places for a while, noting that it has still one more remaining at Hyades Sector KN-K b8-3 which is also good to remove. Beyond that, it has two further in—if M. Leigong receives regular attention in upcoming weeks, INIV will attempt to manage the evictions² such that HIP 9180 can be used to clear the entire area rather than being caught along with Arietis Sector YE-R b4-3, although notably such

Consider

1. By chance the M. Thor attacks are disparate beyond its perimeter that it

2. I imagine completing Arietis Sector NX-U c2-20 normally would move HIP 9180 from seventh- to sixth-closest, helping HIP 8033 become Peripheral later.

Thank you very much.If the Nadira market is still open this evening, we can help to finishLiu Huangfirst! The remaining 1100 ought to be done by around 21:00 if so, with apologies for the lack of attention if that would be entirely too late.

All samples sold, Liu Huang is done.

I noticed that earlier, well before we would have started! If you are able to run a Spire party and maximise the M. Oya periphery, I would be quite happy to add Akbakara and HIP 8525 to the list.

After a significant amount of sampling by AXI's sample wing, we've managed to get the stockpile on board the Ascension to 5500 samples.

Noted—all together that places us at around 30% done, which is

Thinking forward a bit and noting that even the Matrix system at M. Taranis has surpassed 200%, would it be possible to invite the Orthrus massacre party over to M. Hadad after M. Taranis is done? My thought is that HIP 29226 was a quite strong bridge cleared this week, and it would be quite nice if that system becomes peripheral before it enters Alert again.

My first glance FASTEST "recapture rate" case analysist. AKA Bears getting greedy. We would be careful to take into consideration that the Spires are a finite resource. Looking at that logic. From AXI's footprint, we're looking at where we will be in 2 weeks if this continues and whether or not INIV and AXI have accumulated the pre-staged samples in time to take the remaining 15% of difficult captures.

Ie. Swahku (100% = 115k samples before Spire action, and 85% after spire action results in -> 15% = 17k Samples).

INIV and AXI are pre-gather samples for that week.

Have considerations been taken for the others?? If not, then a coordinated attack on spires may be better. However, the caveat is that the titans become stacked, more than we can handle, on any particular accumulated week. I put an "Attack Order" Column in the image as a 'what does the community think' statistic.

I know AXI will be sending forces to the other more plush Titans to allow us and INIV time to gather the sample numbers required, once that week is ready for turn in.

In just a half-week the Operation Deleted collection has week 49 ready in advance, being ~20% of the total, and the extra at Swahku becomes ~30% of the total. The next action needed is another Periphery completion at M. Taranis, during which we should have a good amount gathered for Hupang, held until week 50.

Regarding the full clearance difficulty, there is a bit more to consider than just the strength of the innermost systems:

- Where lies the innermost Spire?

Despite being sixth for M. Taranis, it is relatively lucky—for example, the final Spire at M. Indra is twelfth, at which point I would plan to stockpile Titan rescues. Conversely, at M. Hadad the final Spire is also the closest system. If all Alerts are*prevented*(as opposed to repelled after they occur) then the final Spire can get away with being tenth; if none are prevented then it requires some prior*non-Peripheral*clearance to move the Spire up to fifth. - Is Peripheral progress
*needed*to clear it all?

Certainly it helps, but consider that we*were*planning to clear away all of M. Leigong since prior to update 16, contingent on the outcome of Operation Redacted of course. Ironically, that would have been complete by now were it not for the Matrix systems blocking the path! It could be worth taking a look at the Maelstrom Maps thread; if you download and view the maps for M. Taranis and M. Leigong, you will see why M. Taranis needs an eviction storm with Peripheral progress, and why M. Leigong does not.

- I think its discounted system difficulty is being overestimated; it would be quite fine to complete its periphery every week, we will see the finale approaching, and I believe it would need stockpiling for a single system at most. Notably, its strongest system has been nullified by becoming a Matrix system.
- Given that we are holding territory there, I would quite like at periphery completions for at least a few weeks, just so that the contested systems are among those outer ten.

They're doing pretty good imo and QUICK. Just want to be prepared and not overlap systems like the Oya, Leigong, and Taranis are given +- a week, dependent upon player activities there.

As long as there is a plan established not to overlap as best as possible imo. I'd be cool with it. Aren't the Titan Rescues still 1:5?

Then Hadad (spire is innermost, relatively loosely connected uninhabited inner core)

Then Thor or Oya (both a lot tougher, but theoretically possible? Thor looks easier if you can guarantee discipline around

Then the other three are giant tangled nightmares of connected inner cores and will need some very careful planning. No harm in trimming them down to ~15 LY before then, of course.

Aren't the Titan Rescues still 1:5?

Rescues were changed in update 17; they

As long as there is a plan established not to overlap as best as possible imo.

Indeed; luckily some Maelstroms are simply too far away from their final Spire at the moment, so I think we can focus on the imminent cases.

M. Leigong clearly is next, and it will need

- Complete or progress significantly the Periphery, then recapture
*only*Arietis Sector**AQ-P b5-0**and HIP 9643, leaving**Obassi Osaw**and others alone for now. This also will reduce Alerts by two, for a total progression of four systems, such that the next Periphery will include Arietis Sector YE-R b4-3 but will*narrowly*exclude HIP 9180. - Probably at some point if needed, clear Arietis Sector NX-U c2-20 as non-Peripheral, moving HIP 9180 from seventh to sixth.

The community pushed last week's Indra spire pretty hard, approximately 200%+. We'll have to keep a better track on it from ourside as well. We pushed the fellas in comms to 4 titans last week. Looks to be the going average per cycle.

The community pushed last week's Indra spire pretty hard, approximately 200%+.

As revealed by reported Matrix system progress with M. Thor also complete but unknowable, we had:

Maelstrom | System | Report |

Indra | Hyades Sector DX-H a11-1 | 343% |

Taranis | Trianguli Sector EQ-Y b0 | 216% |

Cocijo | Col 285 Sector YT-F b12-2 | 114% |

Leigong | Hyades Sector KN-K b8-3 | 111% |

I suppose it also keeps things contained a bit, given that the Periphery can only move by a fixed number of systems that way, and that it will catch up with the Alert placements eventually.

AXI adjusting attack order for spires on our side. Taranis moving to #2. 2 weeks to gather all them samples at that rate. We're over the 6k mark on Swahku.

That will be plenty for Swahku already; we will be quite far ahead! Regarding the Periphery progress at M. Taranis, would completion be possible by the end of Saturday? Hupang ought to be all gathered onto V's carrier by then, and I would like to deliver mine (containing four systems this week) so it is ready for starting HR 1737.

Operation Deleted awaits the Periphery reaching maximum progress at M. Taranis, and needs ultimately a Matrix system completion—for example, at Trianguli Sector BA-A d85. Stored progress also reaches well into week 50; we have 10000 for Swahku and 3000 for Hupang, and GXI has offered kindly to adopt the stockpile for HR 1737!

Spire Refinery Compound: ~142,000

Thargoid Bio-storage Capsule: ~100,000

Orthrus: ~54,000

Corroborating this, total peripheral progress is currently around 34%, which would come out in the 250-300% range at the end of the week depending on weekend boosts, which seems about a third of last week's pace, and would need good distribution to complete any spires in a single week (though Indra is currently on pace to, and Thor with no peripheral spires should hit the cap for the rest).

For @Starsong and @Medi0cr3, and perhaps also @KuzSan, the above needs to be noted quite quickly! By all means pause any stored progress, with which we are very much ahead, for with an approximate halving of Peripheral progress we will need a M. Taranis focus much sooner than planned!

*Additional:* There is also another reason why we need a fast completion—if the rate has changed, I am wary of the possibility that the maximum percentage may have changed. Granted, this would not make sense given that 85% *appeared* to be chosen so that the highest-strength systems match the known individual completion rates, but not everything makes sense and we need to know swiftly whether it is still 85% and not 80%, for example.
