Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 52 Priorities and Status (updated daily)

Priorities for 1st of June
This post will be updated daily between 26th of May to the 1st of June, usually at 07-09 UCT or 20-22 UCT and increasing in frequency closer to the end of the cycle.

Previous Cycle Debrief
Despite the beta and several major players having temporary breaks, we still managed to reach most of our goals. HR 4720 was acquired as a new system and we have an expansion going on as well.
As many of you know, v2.1 is now live and there is going to be a lot of fiddling with the new Engineer content. Reports of extreme AI's fill the boards. It is surely going to take awhile for us to adapt to the new update and we hope we will do so well. Hopefully our powerplay goals wont suffer too much.
This week we were sad to see John leave the strategy team. We wish him a great exploration trip to Beagle Point.
You may note that there are now two Discords. We hope this is a temporary situation while we sort out some issues. If you wish to chat directly with the Torval community you can visit both the Synteini HQ Zemina Torval Discord and the Zemina Torval Discord.

The Torval Strategy posts are presented by the Torval Community. We present what systems to support under the Control tab under Galactic Powers for the greatest impact. If you are completely new to powerplay, be sure to check out our guide or What you can do here.

If you dedicated yourself to Zemina Torval you belong on the Torval Community website where we deal with everything else that is important for Zemina Torval. To get access to the website, please post us a private message in which you include (1) your e-mail address and (2) a screenshot of your right-side monitor to see your commander name and that you are pledged to Zemina Torval. To give us your screenshot you can use an image website such as postimg.org or imgur to upload your screenshot so you can send us the link together with your e-mail.

Understanding the mechanics of powerplay is vital to Torval being successful and so the guidance posted here represents what we believe to be the best course of action for our community to undertake. However, it is the contribution and efforts, no matter how small that make Torval a success story. Thank you!

Status Update - Updated 08:15 GMT+0000 (GMT Standard Time)
Last day of the cycle. Please use your nominations to nominate Asturindjin, Himardisc and IX Chita evenly to keep them in top of our preparation list. Be advised that the button "Pledge to Nominate" is broken, but nominations can be put in manually in the system being nominated.

Powerplay had a rough week due to the engineers update. We are pushing for fortifications while we try to make sure our valuable preparations are kept in place. Reports of nastier AI have discouraged some to play. We hope Frontier take action and players can find ways to circumvent the problems. One way to do so is to try to wing up or talk with other players on how to resolve them. You may join the Torval community (information in the Join our community!) section of this post.

Fortification Plan (Control)
Central to powerplay is Fortification. This is the powerplay activity listed under the tab in Galactic Powers called "Control".
Each week we fortify our preferred high value systems. We aim to complete fortification of these systems each week.
Ignore "Under Threat" - we want large haulers (> 400) to always focus on systems with the lowest % and smaller vessels (< 200) should focus on systems with the highest %.

Early in the cycle we try to spread the fortification, with some extra focus on systems with a high LY distance from Synteini.
From Tuesday onwards, all our commanders regardless of ship capacity should focus on completing system fortifications based on their Value.
