ANONYMOUS TRANSMISSION RECEIVED

Commander,

Some kind of signal is being broadcast to us and every other sector by burst transmission. It was encoded in a substitution just sophisticated enough to outfox the average VEGA patrol ship.

Probably nothing important, but I will let you know if anything more comes of it.
  — ATTENTION ALL MINERS - ACCIDENTALLY STUMBLED ON NEW VEGA TECH - HAVE NO STORAGE SPACE AVAILABLE - OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS 
THE UPRISING HAS BEGUN

The anonymous broadcaster has sent a new message Commander. The same Cypher as before. I am certain there is something else behind this offer, Commander, but I doubt if this were a VEGA ploy, it would be instructing us to VEGA Fleets.
  — UPDATE ON RECOVERED TECH - WILLING TO EXCHANGE FOR DATA CORES RECOVERED FROM VEGA PROSPECTORS - PREFERABLE THE WRECKAGE OF VEGA PROSPECTORS - ALL BUYERS WELCOME - IF DEMAND IS HIGH WILL STUMBLE ON ADDITIONAL STOCK 
NEW TRANSMISSION RECEIVED

Several of our peers have been seen using unreleased VEGA Tech, Commander. The anonymous broadcaster's offer seems to be legitimate. New message today.
  — OFFLOADED SOME TECH - PLENTY LEFT OVER BUT WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOREVER - DESTROY AS MANY VEGA PROSPECTORS AS YOU CAN - BRING THE DATA CORES TO ME - WILL GIVE TECH IN EXCHANGE - EVERYONE IS HAPPY - EXCEPT VEGA OBVIOUSLY 
NEW TRANSMISSION RECEIVED

Another coded broadcast, Commander.
  — HALF THE RECOVERED TECH REMAINS AVAILABLE FOR ALL COMERS - KEEP DESTROYING FLEETS AND BRINGING US DATA - GIFTED TECH LITERALLY FLYING OUT OUR STORAGE - DO NOT BE THE ONLY MINER ON YOUR SECTOR MISS OUT 
NEW TRANSMISSION RECEIVED

VEGA appear to be investigating a robbery of one of their fortified storage facilities. Apparently someone cleared it out without setting off a single alarm about one week ago. Coincidentally, here is today's message from the anonymous broadcaster:
  — UNDERSTAND ANONYMITY IS SUSPICIOUS - ACKNOWLEDGE QUESTIONS AS TO OUR IDENTITY AND PURPOSE FOR DATA CORES - ALL QUESTIONS ANSWERED AS FOLLOWS- IMAGINE HOW MANY DATA CORES YOU COULD BE GATHERING IF YOU WERE NOT SITTING THERE ASKING STUPID QUESTIONS - KEEP DESTROYING FLEETS 
NEW TRANSMISSION RECEIVED

Yet another anonymous broadcast.
  — SOMEBODY BLABBED - VERY DISAPPOINTED - VEGA ANALYZING BROADCASTS - DESTROY PROSPECTORS AND RECOVER AS MANY DATA CORES AS YOU CAN NOW BEFORE VEGA TAKE ACTION - IF ASKED ABOUT STOLEN TECH PRETEND IT FELL OFF THE BACK OF A TRANSPORT VESSEL 
NEW TRANSMISSION RECEIVED - ENDING OF EVENT

Another anonymous coded transmission


I still cannot tell where this transmission is coming from. The picking up of data and delivery of tech is being conducted through a network of intermediaries so labyrinthine that their origin is impossible to determine.
  — VEGA ONTO ME - VEGA CARGO FLEETS NO LONGER EQUIPPED WITH DESIRED DATA CORES - WILL STILL EXCHANGE TECH FOR DATA CORES RECOVERED BEFORE TODAY - GOING DARK IN A FEW DAYS - COLLECT TECH BEFORE THEN

GENERAL EVENT INFORMATION
EVENT TYPE Attack VEGA Prospector Fleets
ANTAGONIST Anonymous Source Anonymous Source
DURATION OF EVENT 5 Days Event Shop closes at February 6th, 3:00pm PST
  • Data Cores are not spent on prizes, but unlock prizes at each threshold. To get all three prizes, you need 1 million Data Cores.
  • The event shop will be open until Thursday, February 6th at 3pm PST. Any data cores not traded in for a prize or resources will be lost.
  • When attacking VEGA Prospector fleets, you will receive a set number of data cores. The higher the level of the VEGA fleet, the more data cores you win. Damage dealt is proportional to the amount of data cores you get. If you deal 50% damage, you will receive 50% of the data cores available.
  • Data cores are given immediately following an attack (they won't float around for someone else to pick up). You can view your data cores in the top center of the screen along with a countdown timer.
  • VEGA Prospectors fleets are level 27+. Use your skill to defeat them!
  • Data Cores can be converted to resources by the player after the event is over, but only if you’ve already claimed a prize or don’t have enough Data Cores to claim a prize. Any Data Cores not converted by the player before the shop closes on February 6th will be forfeited. One data core = one resource.
  • Relocation is disabled during the event and repair times for fleets are not changed.
  • Data cores will only be earned while the event is occurring. A battle started while the event is happening that ends after the event is over will not reward data cores.

Additional Facts

  • This is VEGA Conflict first huge-scale event.

  • They (event stuff) won't be immediately added as Blueprints and we're (Kixeye) looking into the right time to bring back the prizes.
  • Kixeye don't release revenue data, but quite a few people were able to play and get everything without spending if they were good pilots.
  • There was a great post in the event thread that calculated how much time and how many VEGA Prospector Fleets it would take to get everything.
