In response to Upwell Consortium’s Lee Brinalle statements in a press conference today, Eve Scout, Signal Cartel’s Director of Special Research, made the following announcement:

“Our capsuleers have been tirelessly collecting Research Components since their role in Upwell’s prototype citadel construction became known. We have amassed a vast inventory since expressing our concerns about Upwell’s site security and management concerns, deciding to withhold them until our concerns were addressed, and offering other capsuleers who shared our concerns an alternative deposit service (see Press Release dated YC 118.01.27).

“Given our organization’s numbers, we realize that Upwell’s concerns about the size of our inventory may have in part prompted today’s press conference. Progress reports shared by Upwell show that they have achieved approximately 65% of their stated Research Component acquisition objectives at the time of this announcement.

“We realize that withholding our inventory may negatively impact Upwell’s goals and affect the roll-out of citadel technology and other associated rewards. After due consideration of both the confidence-inspiring results of our own research and Ms. Brinalle’s statements, EvE-Scout Enclave’s concerns about Upwell’s ability to responsibly handle these Research Components have been generally mitigated. In the spirit of open communication and cooperation, we have instructed our quartermasters to consolidate our inventory. I will begin contracting that inventory to Ms. Brinalle today. Time is short and it is our hope that those transfers will provide Upwell with significant progress toward their stated goals for the citadel research effort.

“Meanwhile, capsuleers can continue to entrust us with their Research Components through YC 118.02.08. We will make best efforts to bundle them with our shipments. ALL contributions of Research Components to our alternative deposit service by capsuleers outside our alliance will be in the running for distribution of our private 6-PLEX fund that will occur on YC 118.02.09.”

UPWELL CONSORTIUM COMPETENCE CONCERNS PROMPT EVE-SCOUT ENCLAVE TO OFFER ALTERNATIVE RESEARCH COMPONENT DEPOSIT SERVICE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
YC 118.01.27

In light of Upwell Consortium’s recent prototype citadel security failures and Research Component mishandling that allowed them to fall into the hands of Serpentis agents, EvE-Scout Enclave has submitted a request to Upwell’s agent Lee Brinalle for information on how they plan to better protect Research Component investments and site worker safety. The inquiry is headed up by capsuleer Eve Scout, recently appointed Director of Special Research for Signal Cartel.

Ms. Scout states, “Upwell’s blatant disregard for site security is a major concern. Their oversights put both worker lives and valuable Research Components at considerable risk of loss. We have no idea how many lives or Research Components may already have been lost. One can only wonder how these mishaps will impact Upwell’s as-yet unannounced quotas that will be required to unlock Upwell’s promised rewards in their ongoing research race.”

Ms. Scout announced, “Because of our concerns about Upwell and our belief that capsuleers should be better rewarded for their effort and risks taken, EvE-Scout Enclave is offering an alternative deposit service and additional opportunity for capsuleers to profit from their Research Component acquisition efforts. I will begin accepting contracts immediately and through YC 118.02.08, with no minimum contribution requirement. We have established a special fund of 6 PLEX to reward our pool of contributors.”

Rewards will be as follows: One PLEX each will go to the top contributing pilot, top contributing capsuleer corporation, and four names drawn randomly from our pool of contributors. Each Research Component submitted will be counted as an entry in the drawing. In addition, the top 25 contributors will be listed in Ms. Scout’s capsuleer biography and all contributors will be listed on the EvE-Scout Galnet site in perpetuity. Winners will be drawn/announced on YC 118.02.09.

Ms. Scout also noted, “When our concerns about Upwell are resolved, I will transfer all the Research Components I hold to Upwell’s agent. Capsuleers are reminded to submit one Research Component to Upwell’s agent directly to be in the running for Upwell rewards as their quotas are reached.” More information can be found at www.eve-scout.com.
