    Patch Notes For 2022-12-15.1

    Features & Changes:

    Events:

    The Winter Nexus event has returned to New Eden! This ingame event will run until downtime on January 3rd 2023.

    • Volatile Ice Storms have begun to appear across highsec, lowsec, and nullsec space. These ice storms spread out across the stargate network two jumps from a central system, and occasionally move from system to system just like metaliminal storms. These storms provide bonuses to ship thermal resistances and module overheating for all capsuleers flying within them. Sansha's Nation and Outer Ring Excavations have both mobilized to take advantage of the novel forms of stellar ice found within these storms.
      • Wightstorm combat anomalies have begun appearing within the Volatile Ice Storms. These sites are full of hostile Sansha's nation vessels, and CONCORD advises capsuleers bring a battlecruiser ship or better when attempting to engage with these forces. The Wightstorm Forward Base site found within storms that originate in highsec space appears to be guarded by the weakest Sansha fleets, with the nullsec Wightstorm Transit Site posing an intermediate challenge and the lowsec-based Wightstorm Muster Point offering the greatest challenge for the greatest rewards.
      • Wightstorm data signatures can also be found within Volatile Ice Storms. These Sansha's Nation data sites can be hacked by enterprising capsuleers equipped with scan probes and data analyzer modules.
      • Volatile Ice Field anomalies can also be discovered within Volatile Ice Storms. These fields of newly discovered stellar ice have recently been captured by ORE and Mordu's Legion forces who have driven away the Sansha harvesting fleets. These ice fields can be accessed through a special ORE-commandeered acceleration gate that only allows medium and small mining and hauling ships to enter (Expedition Frigates, Mining Barges, Exhumers, Industrial Ships, Blockade Runners, Deep Space Transports, and the Porpoise). The volatile ice found within these fields cannot be reprocessed by standard facilities, however Outer Ring Excavations has set up mobile ice collection operations within each of these ice fields, and is willing to trade with capsuleers who contribute to their mining operation. Capsuleers can trade seven units of volatile ice with the ORE representatives in the ice fields to receive a package of valuable salvage and items that ORE forces collected from the wrecks of Sansha ships. Rumors suggest that other valuable Sansha salvage has frozen directly into some of the ice chunks and can be occasionally picked up along with the ice by normal mining activities.
      • Rewards that can be found by capsuleers within all of these sites include valuable Overseers' Effects, hundreds of festive ship SKINs, limited-time Cerebral Accelerators, character apparel, special Sansha's nation combat boosters, Sansha's Nation pirate implant sets, and rare faction modules. 
    • Limited-time Ice Storm filaments are now available that will instantly transport capsuleers into one of these volatile ice storms. Each filament clearly states in its description how many capsuleers it can transport and whether it will take them to a highsec, lowsec, or nullsec storm.
    • A new Yoiul Festival seasonal challenge track can be found within the Agency. These challenges can be completed over the course of the event by engaging with the combat, hacking, and ice mining sites within the Volatile Ice Storms. Completing these challenges will provide players with points that will progress them along a reward track consisting of new exclusive Aurora Universalis skins and Sansha combat boosters.
    • A new set of daily login gifts are available over the course of the Winter Nexus event including snowballs, ice storm jump filaments, new Aurora Universalis skins, Sansha combat boosters, and up to 510k skill points. Players can receive all of these rewards by logging in at least 13 days between now and January 3rd.
    • In addition to the above fantastic gifts, a brand new expert system has been included which will allow all players, including alpha accounts, the ability to fly an Endurance and fit a Ice Mining Laser to mine ice for 4 days. 
    • Keep an eye out for multiple wintery Abyssal Proving ground events over the next month, including 1v1 T1 Cruisers with T1 modules only from December 16-19, a T1 Destroyer with T1 modules FFA from December 30 - January 2, and a 24 hour only 2v2 Battleships arena on January 7th - January 8th. All of these proving events will feature a special set of environmental effects that increase afterburner speed bonuses by 100% and reduce heat damage suffered by overheating modules by 50%. The battleship 2v2 will feature a repeatable challenge that grants 100 million ISK for doing 10,000 damage in the arena.
    • The Chilling Spree snowball challenges have returned, providing bonus SP each day for launching festive snowballs at other players in a game-wide snowball fight!
    • Get your hands on the brand new Yoiul's Ascent fireworks available in the Daily Login Campaign, season reward track and from loot! 

    Miscellaneous:

    Alliance and corporation emblems are now available on the following 186 ships:

    • All Cruisers
    • Mining Barges (T1 and Exhumers)
    • All remaining Destroyers
    • Non-Capital Industry
    • All remaining Frigates

    NEW



    Patch Notes For 2022-12-08.1

    Features & Changes:

    Universe:

    • The Gallente Federation has strengthened its presence within the Intaki system, completing the construction of a new Federation Navy station above Intaki Prime as well as a new stargate connection between Intaki and Amygnon.

    Empires at War

    The new Frontlines feature in Factional Warfare (FW) is now live, drawing pilots closer to the borders of their opponents and presenting new rewarding challenges that focus capsuleer efforts towards key, emerging conflicts where empire history will be written!

    Frontlines

    Systems in a FW warzone can have different operational states which are designated as follows:

    Frontline - adjacent to an enemy-controlled star system, the absolute heart of the battle, and the highest level of reward.

    Command Operations - adjacent to a Frontline system, vital for strategic supremacy with standard LP rewards.

    Rearguard - when none of the above apply, a relative safe zone in the maelstrom.

    Frontlines Map

    02-820x508

    With this update we are adding a new way to visualize the Warzone. With representation of where you can find the frontlines and clear data showing the status of contested systems.

    Suprise attack!

    820x180

    The map isn't the only thing that will be changing in the Warzone! The Gallente have launched a massive surprise assault on Intaki and its surrounding systems.

    The systems of:

    • Intaki
    • Vey
    • Brarel
    • Annancale
    • Agoze
    • Ostingele
    • Harroule
    • Dastryns
    • Uphallant
    • Iges
    • Covryn

    are now held by the Gallente and have been removed from the Factional Warfare system.

    Advantage System

    820x180advantage

    The new Advantage system allows you to give your chosen faction an edge in FW. This edge can be achieved by obtaining a terrain advantage through ownership of adjacent Frontline and Command Operations star systems, through the completion of activities and sites in the FW warzone, and by deploying anchorable structures. The more involved and victorious your faction is in the warzone, the greater the effect will be on your side’s victory points.

    To view a system’s current Advantage, you can navigate to the right-hand side of the FW window when you select a system on the FW map.

    Propaganda Billboard

    • A deployable structure that will serve to demoralize your opposing faction, upon completion of the structure, Advantage will be added to aid you in capturing of their system.

    Listening Outposts

    • A deployable structure used to crack transmission frequencies that once completed will remove advantage from the opposing faction.

    Supply Cache/Depot

    • In-space quick supply depots for the opposing faction that if destroyed will remove advantage from the opposing faction.

    Rendezvous Point

    • Soloable Rendezvous points allow players to engage with the warzone by intercepting NPC combatants. Upon destroying the commander of the fleet, Advantage will be awarded.

    Operation Center

    • Hacking/Exploration site that will provide the players with valuable codes to build Propaganda Billboards and Listening Outposts.

    Reward Rebalance

    820x180reward

    We have increased the amount of Loyalty Points awarded, specifically focused on Frontlines having the largest pay outs to encourage players to engage in a more concentrated area of the warzone.

    • Frontline systems grant 150% of generated Loyalty Points as rewards.
    • Command Operations systems grant 100% of generated Loyalty Points as rewards.
    • Rearguard Systems grant 50% of generated Loyalty Points as rewards.

    We have removed the reward tiers for FW captured systems to make the generation of LP fairer for everyone, and remove the positive feedback loop that was incentivizing Empire swapping.

    Adding More Group Content

    In the current paradigm, Factional Warfare complexes discourage group play as the payout for additional militia members in a site divides the reward pool, which is inelastic. By adding elastic rewards, up to a certain limit for certain sites we can create a space where players are naturally drawn to group up with other friendly players.

    We also want to avoid encouraging super-sized 'swarm' fleets, and so we can tune these Complex rewards to around 5 characters. 5 characters is also a decent number because it is a difficult number of accounts to manage for a single player, limiting the effectiveness of such multiboxing in combat to encourage players enter these sites and act as a group when available, the LP value would be an additional 25% over the 'solo' version of the complex.

    Not all ships are equal Victory Points!

    820x180 s

    We have limited access to FW Complexes to make them more granular, tweaking the paradigm to prevent pirate faction ships from dominating "Novice Complexes". We have also reviewed and updated the access restrictions to complexes overall.

    When it comes to determining Victory Points gained for ship destruction Pirate and Navy faction ships will be treated as separate classes. For example, a worm will not be considered T1. Triglavian and EDENCOM ships will also be included in the "Pirate Faction" category, as it most closely matches their power scaling. For example, a Leshak will yield a higher reward value than a Tempest.

    Site Naming Schema

    We need to effectively communicate expectations; the site names should follow a predictable pattern in which you can learn to rapidly identify the restrictions of a site based on its name. The standard is as follows:

    [Rank / Size] + [ADV / NVY] + "-"[Number] OR [Open Complex]

    Rank / Size - Indicates the size of ships allowed into the site.

    Example: Amarr Medium NVY-5

    • Scout - Frigates and smaller
    • Small - Destroyers and smaller
    • Medium - Cruisers and smaller
    • Large - Battleships and smaller
    • NVY - Short for "Navy". Indicates site only allows T1 and Navy ships to enter, no pirate faction, T2, or T3.
    • ADV - Short for "Advanced". Indicates site allows T2 and Pirate Faction ships.
    • Number - This number indicates the number of characters the site reward scales to.
    • Open Complex - This is an open site, A site without restrictions or an acceleration gate

    Update to Upwell Structures Docking Rules in Factional Warfare

    820x180 tether

    Structures broke the paradigm of risk for factional warfare systems, as previously only the controllers of the system were able to take advantage of the stations. With Citadels, enemy militia could previously safely dock up in enemy space. We are solving this with these new measures.

    The following rules apply to both stations and player-owned citadels in the warzone.

    Frontline Systems

    • Players are able to dock, undock and tether in any ship regardless of faction alignment.
    • Assuming they would have access to dock / tether via ACLs for player owned structures.

    Command Operations & Rearguard

    • Enemy militia cannot tether except in capsules.
    • Enemy militia cannot dock except in capsules.
    • Enemy militia cannot undock from the structure - except for capsules.
    • Friendly militia and unaligned players can dock and tether freely.

    Events

    To Celebrate the launch of Uprising a special set of login rewards are available each day that players log into the game for the first 9 days after the expansion launches. These rewards include up to 425,000 SP for Omega players, and SKINs for navy frigates and the new navy battlecruisers!




    New Navy Ships

    03-820x255

    We have introduced new Navy ship lines into the game as part of the expansion. Navy Exploration Frigates, Navy Battlecruisers, Navy Destroyers and Navy Dreadnaughts.

    All these ships come with a strict upgrade to the tech 1 counterpart as well as some new improved audio. In addition, the New Navy Destroyers and Dreadnaughts have upgraded hulls to stand out on the battlefield.

    Abyssal Deadspace Changes

    Suspect flags returns for high-tier Abyssal Deadspace sites based on security of the system which the site is being run in. You will gain suspect status upon completing the Abyssal Deadspace site.

    Security Tier (no suspect flag) Tier (suspect flag)

    Upwell Structure Hangar visuals

    820x180 hangar

    We have added massive enhancements to Upwell hangars that will ramp up the audio and visual immersion while docked in these structures.

    This also includes a new docking and undocking animation that takes the same amount of time to perform as it did prior to this update.

    • Cancelling undocking will sometimes make your ship perform a 360 and park in the same spot you took off from. A new way to ship spin, for the absolute best.

    Graphics

    06-820x180

    AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution 1.0 is now supported in EVE. This can be very beneficial on higher resolution screens like those that run on 4K, or when used with an older GPU.

    • This gives an increase in frame rate by upscaling a lower resolution version of the game, while preserving as much detail as possible.
    • It can be found in the settings menu inside 'Display & Graphics' → 'Graphic Content Settings' → AMD FSR 1.0.
    • It works on AMD, Nvidia, Intel and Apple M1 based graphics cards.

    A new 'Ambient Occlusion' setting has been added to graphic settings page, as we now calculate “AO” in real time.

    • Having it enabled Improves shading and rendering techniques which increase the visual impact of all graphical assets.
    • Setting this too high on older graphics cards can have a significant impact on performance.

    We have also made visual updates to a few selected ships:

    • The Phoenix has received a visual update.
    • All Tech 1 and Tech 2 variants of Destroyers have received a visual update.
    • We have added a new Amarr Navy pattern.

    Audio

    Updated sound effects for outbursts and impacts for most turret weapons. Every sound outburst now has a distinct feel to it that makes it easier to audibly distinguish between weapons.

    • Beam

    • Pulse

    • Blaster

    • Railgun

    • Artillery

    • Auto Cannon

    • Uprising comes with all new login music.




    New Player Experience

    • Clarified and expanded upon written instructions found throughout the Career Agent missions.

    • Adjusted items received in various Career Agent missions:

      • An 'Overdrive Injector System I' is now given on acceptance rather than completion of the eighth Enforcer mission.
      • An Incursus will now be given instead of a Tristan when accepting the Gallente version of the tenth Enforcer mission.
