So, as posted prior, getting into the bigger, tougher Incursion sites, like the assaults, exposes you to more players that are also more likely involved with the MOM site fleets. My first exposure to such a fleet was soon after flying with the SF assault fleet. It was a contested site and we arrived after the fight had already started. I guess the shield fleet had a hard time getting people to drag themselves away from the VG fleets. So, the call went out, we quick dropped fleet after our FC arranged for our transfer to the MOM fleet, we all got picked up, given the system to warp to, jumped to the gate, and in we went. Pretty chaotic. Drones and wrecks everywhere, so I quickly tuned brackets off and then I was fine. The FC was frantically trying to call out and tag targets, but with 170 chips in the site instead of a normal 85, rats weren't lasting long. Shit was popping before I could even get lock at least half the time. Needless to say, the armor boys won the day and scooped the loot.
For all the players that do incursions, unofficially, they have organized into shield and armor "sides", and each have their own "official" channels, as far as the players are concerned. At least in high sec, anyway. If there are an even number of Incursions, the senior Incursion players pick one for shielf, and the other goes to armor. If it's an odd number of incursions, the odd numbered Incursion MOM site is contested. After players have farmed the Incursions enough, the incursion description changes, and players race to fleet up and kill the MOM site. On contested sites, the faster the fleet gets formed up the better chance that fleet has of getting the ~64 million payout, per player, for about 20 minutes of work. When the Kundalini Manifest supercarrier is killed, it drops a container with rare loot. It's a race to loot the wreck and anyone can grab it. The loot items are presented in chat, and interested fleet members bid on them. Who ever manages to get the loot, gets 20% of the final bid prices and the rest of the money goes into an Incursion ship replacement fund. Auction prices are crazy high, but no one seems to care, and it means there is ample cash to help replace ships lost in Incursions. People are fairly savvy running sites now, so few ships get lost, and there is lots of cash in the funds.

The Point? MOM sites are another cool Incursion experience, and while they are routine with a good fleet and FC, I have yet to be targeted by the nasty stuff . . .
