My W-System continues to be quiet, typically I get the "system not loaded" message at login, meaning literally nobody has been to the system since downtime and EVE servers need to go cache the system data. I had one lonely visitor that I had to run off, but being the anti-pirate, anti-griefer that I am, I actually helped the pilot finish the sleeper site he/she was working and let them keep the loot rather than taking the easy kill. One Perimeter Checkpoint out of 63 was not a loss worth podding a fellow explorer... I closed the extremely rare HighSec WH that the pilot had entered through and continued with my efforts to cleanse this system.
I am down to 3 sleeper sites and some new Radar/Mag sites that have been spawning plus all of the Ladar and Grav sites untouched. I will clear the former and take another run to market.
I continue to struggle with the decision on how to run my Medium POS - whether to continue to let the Fuel burn at a high rate (specifically the Isotopes and Liquid Ozone) or to bring all of the defenses in-house until there is some action and then deploy. I have probably burned through 50M ISK in Isotopes and Liquid Ozone since I moved my POS and not so much as a whisper near the POS. A tiny investment considering the 1.7B ISK I have cashed in this system alone, but still... As such, I have been giving some recommended POS setups some thought and I think that I may switch to a new strategy around a "tanked" POS (I am not going to use the common reference: "d*ck star") meaning simply the POS is only supplemented with Hardeners to make the shield even more ridiculously difficult to put into reinforced mode. In fact, since the hardeners reside inside the shield bubble, the idea is to offline them until there is an attack, then online them only when needed. Less fuel burn and higher HP on-demand.
I also received a convo with Quiv over at Planet Risk - his POS has seen some recent action, and there is an excellent recap there about the experience - I consider this a "must-read" for W-space dwellers.
It also served to both support and augment my perspective on a good POS buildout - I will keep all of the turrets and active defenses stowed until needed, meanwhile maintaining offline hardeners in the event of an attack. Again, if a large force decided to make it their mission to take the POS down, they could, but the idea is to make it as big of hassle as possible - few pilots really like to stay online for 12+ hours and do nothing but re-lock the shield and shoot...
EDIT: Be sure to read comments as there is a great exchange on POS setups and perspectives.
Also - CONGRATS to Quiv on hist first-ever Bomber kill! OK, it was a poor little defenseless Iteron, but hey - it was the ENEMY and contained the resupply ammo stocks - what better way to defend than to eliminate the supply lines! It counts in my book...
