TRI Corp. Creates Beacon Awards – Factions in an Uproar

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ) TRI Corporation has announced a new program that rewards pilots who tune and hold beacons for a full 25 cycles. “Everyone has suffered by the lack of pilot motivation to tune beacons,” said Tristan Kamihira, Director of TRI-GATE. “Beacons have gone un-tuned and unmaintained for extensive stretches of time for the past year or so. This means a lot more maintenance work for us, and a lot more danger to the pilots.”

TRI has created a variety of awards:

   AWARD  DESCRIPTION EXPERIENCEPOINTS

Beacon Cumulative Count Awards

 medal92 Rainbow Matrix Awarded pilots who have tuned and held* a total of 500 beacons 50,000
 medal91 Wave Matrix Awarded pilots who have tuned and held* a total of 5,000 beacons 100,000
 medal93 Sarath’s Plan Awarded pilots who have tuned and held* a total of 15,000 beacons 300,000

Region-Tuning Awards

 medal89 Purple Matrix Awarded to pilots who tune and hold* ALL sectors in Amananth space 3,500
 medal90 White Matrix Awarded to pilots who tune and hold* ALL sectors in Unregulated space 3,500
* “Hold” means that the beacon must remain tuned (and not flipped or re-tuned by another pilot) for 25 consecutive cycles (2.5 hours).

Solrain, Octavius, Quantar and Hyperial have all lodged formal protests with TRI Corp saying that it has exceeded its authority and is interfering with factional sovereignty. “We will vigorously defend our space and our beacons,” said Consul Nestro Zagabi of Cinatus. “And we will deal with TRI as well.”

Not even a full-day into the new awards system, witnesses have reported a number of battle markers across space.
