Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 28 Priorities and Status (updated daily)

Priorities for 16th of December
This post is updated daily between 10th of December to 16th of December, usually at around 07-09 UCT or 20-22 UCT and increasingly frequency closer to the end of the cycle.

Previous Cycle Debrief
Congratulations! We managed to convince two loss making control system - He Pola and Junga - to revolt and ended up with a healthy CC surplus of by 174.
Great efforts by our fortifiers saw us come very close to meeting out fortification plan with only Kaliki falling short, but it was enough to put us into a good position this week.
Having two systems revolt, even though they are liabilities means that we have fallen a place to #8. However this is a short term loss for a much healthier financial footing going forward.

New readers
Here the Torval Strategy Team present daily strategies for coordinated efforts to support the Zemina Torval.

Unfortunately many new players support their power incorrectly, wasting time on things without any impact or actions that cause their power direct harm. If you are new here, please read our guide or what you can do.

The Torval community have several resources available for players who are interested If you are dedicated to Zemina Torval we like to hear from you. Please post us a private message in which you include your e-mail address and a screenshot of your right-side monitor to see your commander name and that you are pledged to Zemina Torval. If you do we can get you invited to our shared resources.

Status Update - Updated 22:36 GMT+0000 (GMT Standard Time)
Last day of the cycle. As expected, Horizons is now live. I have already experienced some issues including issues with navigation (double clicking, hard resetting a XBox1 or reducing the then increasing the Cargo Slider seem to work as workarounds). Yesterday also had a very low fortification which is also expected so any advantage we had early in the week is now gone. That doesn't mean we are in a bad situation, getting the rest fortified today is more than doable, although I bet people wish to check out Horizons. I will personally delay my entusiasm and continue to work on the system with the highest cost and work from there. :)

Today we also pour all our nominations into our preparation of choice; HIP 53719.

I will also recommend players to read the "new readers" section again if you haven't done so in awhile. We are always looking for newcomers.

Fortification Plan
Each week we fortify systems which are important to us that we hope to see fortified at the end of the week. Ignore "Under Threat" - we want large haulers (>400) to always focus on systems with the lowest % and small haulers (<200) to always focus on systems with the highest %. Early in the cycle we try to spread the Points but put some extra focus on systems with a high LY but not to put all eggs in one basket. From Tuesday on all our commanders regardless of ship work on completing systems based on their value.
HIP 10859873.7610751%3,334
