#### Topic: EP For mining

The latest article about EP says:

Mining & harvesting: similar to rare materials, you have a small chance to receive EP while your gathering modules are working. The chance is divided with the number of active modules, so it doesn't matter how many you are using. On average, this means about 1 EP per minute.

"while gathering modules are working" - this means it's simply time, or someting else?

I've thought is the chance for every new cycle, but then i've gathered the statistics. For** 3 hours **of non-stop mining, with 2 characters:

(Scarab)Module 1:

Cycle time: **6.37** (-)

Mining amount increase: **35.16%** (-)

EP gained: **182** times, avg every **58** sec. (+)

------------

(Riveler)Module 2:

Cycle time: **3.82** (+)

Mining amount increase: **77.02%** (+)

EP gained: **173 **times, avg every **61** sec. (-)

------------

I suppose the diminishing returns affects the amount but not the chance.

Riveler makes EP slower in this case. But that's probably just the "noise", so there's actually **no any difference**, the dice is rolls equally for everyone who have at least one module active?
