Post Scruuge hijackers dropping rate
I am curious to know how many scruuge hijackers people got during the event as I only got 2 during the whole event (one of them given by Dan after I filed a ticket around the middle of the event as I hadn't received any).

The few people I talked to got quite a few more, around or close to 10.

Think it was at least 10 for me as well as a Governor though.

getting 10 in 20 days seems a bit high, even with governor.

for future, to maximize hijacker drops in december:

1. governor profession gives 3x chance of planetary event at upkeep time
2. oruas eye upgrades for vision of prosperity to guarantee a planetary event at upkeep time
3. making sure to login at least once every day, preferably just after your upkeep time to ensure you get a daily upkeep trigger ever day during the seasonal

other than that, you are subject to RNG luck - the hijacker is in the same pool as the other planetary events triggered at the upkeep time, and you could get a planetary event every day without triggering the hijacker.

Also add to that I did have quite a bit of prosperity visions as well so there's that...

Out of about 5 or 6 hijackers I only got 2 Cargo Pads. I wonder if everyone else was that unlucky. Dan possibly made it the rare drop.

We should get an NPC for Scruuge Cargo Pads or Vicars could have it as a rare ddrop.

I think I only got three... even with quite a few visions of prosperity. It's all random...

I will probably go governor next year to try for more.

I had two Scruuge Hijackers on my NPC BT when I came in one day. I have 3 Cargo pads in cargo and know I used at least one other, so that's 5 for me.

scruuge growth vats also drop from the hijacker .. so you have to add those into your tally.

See what happens when Mr Spock doesn't post the Scruuge NPCs? :lol: I had at least one Scruuge Growth Vat.

It never occurred to me that planetary blockades were a Planetary Event! The first time I was Governor, I got one Event per day, every day, but they were just the temporary production buffs. The second time I was Gov, I didn't notice Events were any more frequent than they are when I'm another profession. Do you just get the temp buffs, or have you gotten Rings or Moons while you were a Governor?

I have never gotten rings moons or ACR while Governor. I got those events I think 3 times maybe in my entire time playing this game which were without Governor. Even as a Governor they are ridiculously rare.

I was governor for about 6 months a few years ago, the only permanent effect I got while governor was a stealth screen on one my worst planet.
