From Tom Schlong:

I left the drones outside all the time and all ships from all spawns always targeted me, never the drones.
I just sat there and killed all ships flying towards me, the trigger always last.

That the same I have noticed. They never touch drones, unless I order them to attack first.
Also I see that The Blockade lost Blitz condition on transfer to Wiki :)
Blitz: Kill trigger in every spawn (complete mission objectives asking you to "Kill their high-ranking officers")

It's also worth saying, that like the other blockade missions, destroying the stasis tower first might be a good idea.

Since the goal of the mission is to kill to Pirate chief, I suggest you to go after the Centatis Daemons, the moment you see them, if you want to finish the mission a little faster of course.

I mined 1.5mill veldspar around the warp in. Within 30 km.
Estimated about 1 mill more.
Very good veldspar mining mission.

Recommended ships are a bit misleading. This is an easy mission for battlecruisers - given that you've fitted accordingly.

Kin missiles on any Caldari ship that gets a bonus for using them are just as effective as the recommended EM/Therm. Did this in a Nighthawk without rigs -- came in at 70 km and just kept killing them. Bring lots of missiles -- took about 1500 T1 heavies in all.

easily done in a myrmidon (and probably any battlecruiser with a decent tank)

Completed in T2 rigged/fitted 720MM Artillery/Heavy Missile Hurricane - Passive Shield tank with Active Hardener, Damage Control, Afterburner, Gyrostabilizer.

The amount of NPC's in each group, names of NPC's and the amount of groups has changed. The amount of waves is still the same.

Schallmau3r list of NPC's and groups is close to accurate. I didn't notice the NPC names were different until wave 3. The names of the Triggers are still accurate. Next time I'll list the names and amounts of NPC's in each group.

Wave 1 = 1 group (9 NPC's)
Wave 2 = 3 groups (14 NPC's)
Wave 3 = 2 groups (11 NPC's)
Wave 4 = 2 groups (12 NPC's)
Wave 5 = 1 group (7 NPC's)

Total amount = 53 NPC's

I still had 3 of the 4 Centatis Daemon NPC's left from the last wave when mission flashed as completed. No loot from structures.

The fourth wave for me was the frigs, 3 mutilators, and 8 specters. I finally hit the trigger on the sixth one I killed.
The loyal frigs in the last wave (maybe fourth wave too?) also tracking disrupt at long range. Sometimes more than one at a time. Bring drones, long range, excellent tracking, or be good at kiting.

I don't know when it started, but after Crius deployment NPC's are killing drones for sure :(
So be prepared to it. :/

I easily managed with a Gnosis, target painter, t1 light drones, and heavy missles. Not too important to worry about triggers if you keep your wits about you and stay at >= 40km range.
