  • Havoc Update – LP Trading & Ship Balance

    20. February 2024 16:05


    Loyal capsuleers,

    New Eden is constantly in motion, ever-evolving, impacted by corruption and suppression, and subjected to the havoc wrought in space and on the ground. A new update sees an influx of strategic enhancements, focusing on enriched Factional Warfare experience, quality of life improvements, and the much-requested return of Loyalty Point (LP) donations. Many of the changes being implemented are in direct response to community requests, specifically proposals for ship rebalancing via the Council of Stellar Management (CSM), which recently concluded its annual summit in Reykjavik.

    UNITED THROUGH LOYALTY

    Cooperation within corporations is a cornerstone of EVE Online, and the return of LP donations is a key step toward further fostering this vital aspect of gameplay. Since LP donations were paused following the release of the Havoc expansion for monitoring the new ecosystem, many groups & communities within the warzone and beyond have expressed a strong need to have this re-enabled sooner rather than later. The ecosystem will continue to be monitored, so in anticipation of the potential impact on the economy and to ensure a balanced environment, a future update will introduce a tax system to these transactions.

    This enhancement is part of EVE's ongoing commitment to respond to community feedback and to refine the in-game experience, making cooperation not just a part of survival in New Eden but a thriving aspect of its rich, player-driven narrative.

    FACTIONAL WARFARE ELEVATED

    The EVE community has pointed out myriad opportunities for rebalancing through the CSM, and this feedback has been instrumental in the changes implemented in the new update. In the spirit of fostering a more dynamic and competitive Factional Warfare environment, significant ship rebalances are being introduced to enrich capsuleers' strategic options in New Eden.

    The essence of these changes lies in addressing the dominance of certain ships, such as the Exequror Navy Issue, Osprey Navy Issue, and Caracal, which have historically overshadowed their counterparts due to their superior range and damage capabilities. These vessels receive slight adjustments to ensure they don’t dramatically surpass the diversity of viable ships in their respective classes. Furthermore, the Bellicose and the Republic Fleet Firetail receive much-needed enhancements to affirm their place in the combat ecosystem.

    Exequror Navy Issue February Update

    TACTICAL TWEAKS

    Throughout the cluster, nuanced adjustments are being introduced to refine the PvP experience, particularly for veteran pilots. These tweaks, grounded in player input, aim to subtly enhance the strategic diversity and balance of ship performance, making engagements more dynamic without drastically altering the established combat landscape.

    Marauders will experience a minor reduction in warp speed, a change designed to subtly affect their battlefield mobility. This adjustment opens up new tactical opportunities for adversaries, potentially allowing for more strategic isolation of marauders in conflict scenarios.

    In the realm of command ships, enhancements focus on fostering a balanced distribution of roles and effectiveness. A modest increase in the range of command bursts by 50% is introduced to improve their operational flexibility in fleet settings, enhancing their support capabilities without overshadowing other fleet components. The Nighthawk and the Astarte receive slight modifications to promote balance and encourage diversity in PvP situations.

    Entropic disintegrators, synonymous with Triglavian might, are adjusted to offer a more measured performance. The initial damage output is slightly reduced, with a compensatory increase in damage ramp-up per cycle.

    BETTER SPREADSHEETS IN SPACE

    Recent enhancements to the EVE Online Excel add-in empower players with even more advanced tools for corporation member tracking, market order analysis, and structured data management. These updates, including intuitive search functions for structures and stations as well as comprehensive insights into market dynamics, are designed to optimize data-driven decision-making in New Eden. Detailed patch notes and discussions can be found in the EVE Online forums. To facilitate a seamless integration of these new features, a sample worksheet is available, providing a practical starting point for data-hungry capsuleers to leverage the full potential of the Excel add-in.

    NAVIGATING THE FUTURE

    EVE Online continues to evolve, with a focus on ensuring that the journey through New Eden is constantly improving. Whether through balance adjustments, quality-of-life improvements, or player-influenced alterations, the sandbox keeps expanding, and the sky is not the limit but merely the beginning.

  • First Strike February Playtest

    20. February 2024 16:00


    At the ready Vanguard, 

    Once again, the battlefield calls and legions of warclones will answer. The latest First Strike playtest kicks off at 12:00 UTC on 22 February and runs until 12:00 UTC on 26 February, opening the doors to EVE Vanguard for the curious and competitive around New Eden. As in previous First Strike events, the playtest is open to all Omega players as a part of Founders’ Access. 

    ONWARD AND UPWARD 

    As warclones take to the frontlines in droves to do the Deathless’ bidding, rest assured that not only are you doing your part to spread corruption in New Eden, but also contributing to the ongoing development of EVE Vanguard, which is very much a collaborative effort.

    Already, our Founders have been instrumental in providing valuable insights into areas for improvement, which are being implemented in current and upcoming builds of the game. We will continue to collect feedback from players to improve and build upon a solid foundation.

    Push to talk (PTT), a much-requested quality-of-life feature with a mappable shortcut key (default is left ALT) has been added (for now it needs to be reset for each session), along with the following updates and improvements to this build: 

    • The ability to remap the sprint command to a different key has been implemented (for now it needs to be reset for each session). 

    • An issue causing players to reload after firing one shot has been fixed. 

    • An issue causing the client to crash when characters died has been fixed.  

    • An issue that saw dropped loot boxes spawning underground when placed on the metal floor has been fixed. 

    • The ability to add players on the same squad to favorites is now available. 

    • Issues with firewalls blocking certain connection ports have been addressed. 

    We look forward to seeing your rampage on the battlefield and receiving your post-deployment feedback to further improve EVE Vanguard. 

    SOW CHAOS, REAP REWARDS

    Just like in previous playtests, there are serious rewards on the line for industrious warclones. Depending on your activities on the ground, you may walk away with impressive spoils. Vanguard who eliminate 50 threats (which include NPCs, other Vanguard, or turrets) as part of a squad of two or more, will receive the Atron Arkombine Arisen SKIN. Any kills made by a squad will count towards the total for each member, but should any warclone in the squad die from friendly fire, all progress in the deployment will be void. 

    Atron SKIN Vanguard reward

    Collecting 2,000 units of biomass will earn players the Talwar Arkombine Arisen SKIN, but keep in mind that your progress will be void if you attempt to collect biomass by shooting one of your squadmates. 

    Talwar SKIN reward Vanguard

    Additionally, Vanguard who reach the top 10 leaderboard for most contracts completed with successful extraction during the event, will be handsomely rewarded with PLEX. 

    Leaderboard Rank  

    PLEX Reward 

    1 

    3,000 

    2 

    2,000 

    3 

    1,500 

    4-5 

    1,000 

    6-10 

    500 

    Also, completing the challenge of eliminating 50 threats with the help of your squad mates counts toward a longer-term challenge which will culminate in unique rewards later this year. In the December playtest, it was enough to simply launch the game, and in January, you needed to complete a deployment as a squad member. To unlock the big reward in June, you need to complete at least four of six challenges, so make sure you don’t miss out. 

    BECOME A FOUNDER 

    As in the previous First Strike playtests, the doors to Vanguard will be open to players with Founders’ Access, meaning the only requirement to join the event is to have Omega. For those who haven’t already, this is the perfect time to upgrade, as both the EVE Store and the New Eden Store are offering a bundle including 14 days of Omega access and the Astero Arkombine Arisen SKIN for a limited time, giving anyone interested in jumping into EVE Vanguard an unmissable opportunity. 

    Aster SKIN reward Vanguard

    SEE YOU PLANETSIDE 

    EVE Vanguard is a collaborative effort between developers and players, and your participation on the battlefield is invaluable. We look forward to seeing you in the First Strike February playtest, and continuing to work with you toward the creation of the ultimate FPS experience within the EVE Universe.  

    Make sure you tune in to CCP TV at 16:00 UTC on 22 February as EVE devs will be going live to talk about all things Vanguard, and join the Q&A on the Discord server at 16:00 UTC on 23 February. In addition, the Live2Feed stream from 14:00-16:00 on Friday 23 February will feature EVE Vanguard, so stay tuned for that.

  • Patch Notes - Version 21.06

    20. February 2024 12:00


    Greetings,

    The following page will list patch notes for all updates within this release (Version 21.06). We invite you to join the player discussion about the content of this release on EVE Online forums:

    Initial Release Date: 2023-11-14 Last update: 2024-02-20

    🤝 - Indicates a change inspired by the player's feedback or suggestions.

    Patch Notes For 2024-02-20.1

    Features & Changes:

    LP Donations:

    • 🤝 LP donations from characters to corporations, and from corporations to corporations, is now possible again.

    An LP donation tax might be introduced in the future. We will monitor how the LP market is affected in the coming months.

    Winter Balance Update

    In this balance pass, we are hoping to address some long-standing community concerns with projection and overpowered weapon systems - while also cutting down and boosting some outliers to hopefully promote alternative options for a more vibrant death and destruction filled ecosystem.

    Weapon Systems:

    Entropic Disintegrators

    Triglavian weapons have been very powerful for a long time, especially since they feature medium ranges with better than blaster tracking, while in many cases, pre-ramp DPS can also be on par or close to other ships which operate at the same range. While we originally looked into reducing their tracking, we decided that the better alternative was to lean into their identity as a ramping damage weapon. Triglavian weapons are being adjusted to have slightly lower base damage, but they will retain the same damage at max spool as they have now by increasing the maximum ramp multiplier. The Mimesis implant set and Nergal/Ikitursa will end up having a small damage increase at max spool. We are also increasing the damage multiplier per cycle so it will still take around 30 cycles of the weapon to reach max ramp.

    • Base damage reduced by 20%

    • Damage multiplier per cycle increased from 5% to 7%

    • Damage multiplier max increased from 2.5x to 3.125x

    This should make them weaker at killing tackle ships, since the initial damage when target swapping is lower. This will also help other alternative options that fill the same role stand out more, like in the case of the Omen Navy Issue vs the Vedmak, with the Omen Navy Issue now offering much better initial DPS.

    The Triglavian AT ships have also been adjusted to maintain their unique quality of reaching max ramp in 20 cycles instead of 30 cycles.

    • Hydra - Additional damage multiplier per cycle increased from 0.5% to 0.75% per level of the Covert Ops skill.

    • Tiamat - Additional damage multiplier per cycle increased from 0.5% to 0.75% per level of the Recon Ships skill.

    Note: We have chosen to not adjust the capital weapon variation (Ultratidal) at this time.

    Rapid Light Missile Launchers

    Rapid Light Missile Launchers have been incredibly powerful for some time, especially when combined with range bonuses. As we re-balanced the Cerberus in the Viridian Expansion last summer, we intentionally removed the light missile range bonuses from the ship. In this balance pass, we are removing all the remaining per level range bonuses to Rapid Light Missiles, to match the precedent set with Rapid Heavy Missiles, which do not increase with Bastion or Spaceship Command skills.

    Note that role bonuses from ships will still apply just like with Rapid Heavy Missiles (Mordus Legion Ships and Combat Battlecruisers).

    • Caracal - Missile velocity bonus now only applies to Heavy and Heavy Assault Missiles.

    • Osprey Navy Issue - Missile velocity bonus now only applies to Heavy and Heavy Assault Missiles.

    • Onyx - Missile velocity bonus now only applies to Heavy and Heavy Assault Missiles.

    Ships:

    Marauders

    While we are happy with the on-grid power of Marauders since the adjustments we made in the Viridian Expansion, Marauders can still feel oppressive in certain scenarios. Marauders currently only warp 12.5% slower than T1, Faction and T3 Cruisers, which doesn’t leave much room for them to out-maneuver Marauders when choosing to avoid them. It also does not give players much reason to choose smaller hulls over a Marauder when travel time is a consideration for PVP and PVE. To tackle this, we’re reducing the warp speed of Marauders down to the same base level as T1 and Faction battleships.

    • Warp speed for the Marauder Class (Paladin, Golem, Kronos, Vargur) reduced from 3.5 AU/s to 3.0 AU/s.

    Black Ops

    • Cloak Velocity Speed Role bonus increased from 6.5x to 7.5x to match the current stated trait role bonus of 650%.

    The trait role bonus wasn't being applied properly.

    Field Command Ships

    In an earlier balance pass, we removed the Command Burst range bonuses from the Field Command group of Command Ships in exchange for an increase to Command Burst strength. This change, however, has made them feel a bit too difficult to use while skirmishing, so we are re-adding the Command Burst range bonus at Combat Battlecruiser strength.

    • Added 50% Role Bonus to Command Burst Range to the Field Command subgroup of Command Ships (Absolution, Nighthawk, Astarte, Sleipnir).

    Astarte

    The Astarte is currently the least used Command Ship and it struggles to compete with the cheaper Brutix Navy Issue hull. We also boosted the Deimos in an earlier balance pass which has made the extra ISK cost for upshipping into the Astarte hull not feel as worthwhile as it once was. To help address this, we are giving the Astarte a small bump in rep power to help it stand out more as a tankier alternative to the Brutix Navy Issue.

    • Armor Repairer bonus increased from 7.5% to 10% per level of Gallente Battlecruiser skill.

    Nighthawk

    Because the Nighthawk is overperforming in wormhole space and becoming oppressive, we are toning down on its damage by lowering the Rate of Fire bonus, but partially compensating it by increasing the Kinetic Damage bonus. Our aim here is to slightly lower the Nighthawk’s damage output and shift it more into Kinetic so players have more options to counter them outside of firewalls, such as fitting Kinetic Hardeners, Reactive Hardeners and bringing Tech II Gallente ships.

    • Rate of Fire bonus for Heavy and Heavy Assault Missiles reduced from 10% to 7.5% per level of Command Ships skill.

    • Kinetic Damage bonus for Heavy and Heavy Assault Missiles increased from 7.5% to 10% per level of Caldari Battlecruiser skill.

    Exequror Navy Issue

    The Exequror Navy Issue was the least used faction Cruiser in the game prior to Uprising. We are happy we managed to pull it out of the abyss it was in, but it’s now at the very top of the pile along with the Osprey Navy Issue and has become incredibly dominant.

    • Medium Hybrid Damage bonus reduced from 25% to 20% per level of Gallente Cruiser skill.

    Bellicose

    The Bellicose continues to have low usage as both an Ewar Platform and a Combat Cruiser. With the changes made to Rapid Light Missiles, we want to make sure there are strong Tech I options for going all-out with medium missiles. This is why we are increasing the speed and powergrid output of the Bellicose, to help it stand out more against the Caracal as a speedier alternative for shield setups and help enable armor setups.

    • Max velocity increased from 240m/s to 260m/s.

    • Powergrid output increased from 700 tw to 780 tw.

    Republic Fleet Firetail

    Prior to Uprising, all 4 navy Combat Frigates (Comet, Slicer, Hookbill and Firetail) had similar usage, with the Firetail slightly trailing. Post Uprising, the other 3 ships have increased in usage considerably, but the Firetail has been left behind. We are adding a smaller falloff bonus to help boost the Firetail’s versatility, especially for Auto-Cannon setups.

    • New bonus added, 5% bonus to Small Projectile Falloff per level of Minmatar Frigate skill.

    Insurgencies:

    • The closest Forward Operating Base, or Zarzakh, will now appear in the loyalty points section of the wallet when looking at Malakim Zealots or Commando Guri LP.

    Modules:

    • 🤝 It is now possible to pre-overheat modules while under the effects of jump cloak. (This is the temporary invulnerability and cloak you have from recently arriving in a new system from a Stargate, Shipcaster, Ansiblex or Wormhole.)

    User Interface:

    • Changed the fill color of the Corruption bubbles in the Insurgency Window to match the Corruption color of the UI.

    Localization:

    • Voice over has now been added in Spanish.

    Defect Fixes:

    Gameplay:

    • Ship Autopilot will now jump through Ansiblex Gates.

    • Damaged Laser Crystals will no longer be counted as modules for the "repair all" option for Nanite Repair Paste.

    • It is now possible to import fits for the Avatar.

    • It is now possible to search for “blueprint” and “officer” in the search New Eden bar.

    • The quantity field no longer cuts off the numbers of charges in in the Fitting window in simulation mode.

    • The Zarzakh Toll Cost is no longer rounded up or down to 3 significant figures, and now always shows the correct cost.

    • The basic Shield Amplifiers will now appear in the Storyline Section of the Market.

    • The Compression window now correctly opens after choosing the Compress option when the window has been minimized.

    • The View Inside button tooltip now shows the correct tooltip.

    • Removed the extra line space in the tooltips in the Insurgency Info Panel.

    Insurgencies:

    A new balancing mechanic has been added to Insurgencies: The Ambition Modifier.

    • The Ambition Modifier will change how many corruption 5 or suppression 5 solarsystems a side requires for victory in an insurgency campaign.

    • Whenever an Insurgency campaign is won by the pirates, or the anti-pirates, that side will increase their ambition modifier by +1 if they currently have equal or more ambition than the other side.

    • If an Insurgency campaign is won by the side with less ambition, it will reduce the ambition modifier of the other side by -1.

    • The Ambition Modifier can go as high as +13, requiring a side to fully corrupt or suppress 20 solarsystems for victory or to make the FOB vulnerable.

    • Information about the Ambition Modifier can be found ingame in the pirate insurgency guide page in the agency.

    • Added a new insurgency filter to the starmap and the classic starmap.

    • New Graphics, Audio and VFX have been added to Insurgency solarsystems and the pirate FOB to reflect the corruption and suppression state, campaign state and the Ambition Modifier.

      • As corruption goes up, stargates and stations will start to feature pirate billboards, electrical faults, fires, smoke, and clouds.

      • As suppression goes up, stargates and stations will start to feature police drones and “bobs”.

      • The Pirate FOB will feature additional VFX as the ambition modifier increases.

      • The Pirate FOB will also feature new VFX on the ‘undocking ports’ of the FOB as the pirates win solarsystems.

    Zarzakh:

    • The Angel Cartel and the Guristas Pirates have increased patrols in the Zarzakh solarsystem.

      • These new NPCs will attack militia players, but will otherwise be neutral to capsuleers who choose to keep the peace in Zarzakh. They will engage anyone who has a deathless retribution timer.

    • The Angel Cartel and Guristas Pirates have also deployed new patrols in the surrounding solarsystems of Turnur, G-0Q86 and H-PA29. These NPCs will be friendly to capsuleers who have chosen to enlist with them but will attack anyone else on sight.

    Defect Fixes:

    Technical:


    Patch Notes For 2024-01-09.1

    Features & Changes:

    Exploration:

    • We’ve made some changes to DED sites which can spawn in high-security space (Difficulty 1/10 through to 4/10). Some of those DED sites required keys to be acquired in order to activate certain acceleration gates to move on to the next room of the site. We’ve changed those rooms so now those acceleration gates no longer require keys, and now just require all the pirate NPCs to be killed in the room to progress to the next room. We’ve made this change because with the old keys, if a player warped out of the site, or was destroyed in the site, or simply decided to keep the key, then the site would then often be incompletable by other players and would still persist in the solarsystem until it naturally despawned days later, frustrating explorers who put in effort to scan it down. We’ve opted to only do this for 1/10 through to 4/10 for now to avoid altering PVP balance in the higher rated lowsec/nullsec DED complexes where players can get some level of safety in a site once they’ve made it through the gate that requires a key.


    Patch Notes For 2024-01-04.1

    Features & Changes:

    Localization:

    • Fixed Pirate Strongholds being referred to as ‘Forward Operating Bases’ in the reward section of the pirate stronghold agency page.


    Patch Notes For 2023-12-19.1

    Defect Fixes:

    Gameplay:

    • Fixed an issue with combat scanner probes only tracking the position of a ship or object the first time you scanned it, and not updating to their new position if they moved for subsequent scans.


    Patch Notes For 2023-12-15.1

    Defect Fixes:

    Gameplay:

    • When stealing from the ESS Main bank, the buff bar icon above the HUD will now be present again.

    • A live fix was deployed to the Insurgency backend service yesterday afternoon, Suppression stage 5 will now stop solar systems from progressing or gaining corruption after Corruption level 4.

    Localization:

    • Fixed an error on the Insurgency Guide Page that incorrectly claimed that the suppression 2+ bonus was 3% to LP gains per additional level of suppression instead of the correct amount of 5% LP gains.

    • Fixed an error with the German and French news window items having swapped text.

    • The “Always use English voice” option now behaves as intended. You may need to toggle this setting if you have changed it recently.


    Patch Notes For 2023-12-14.1

    Graphics:

    • Added an icon to the Insurgency map for the Ice Refinery Heist when it is available in a system.

    Structures & Deployables:

    Patch Notes For 2023-12-12.1

    Features & Changes:

    Insurgencies:

    The Ice Refinery Heist has been added as a new activity in the Pirate Insurgencies.

    • Large, fleet-oriented sites that will spawn when corruption or suppression reaches stages 3 and 4. The Ice Heist will share the LP reward with up to 30 pilots before being diminished.

    • The Ice Heist will allow T1, T2 and T3 ships of battleship size and below to enter. Depending on if you’re a pirate, opposing militia member, or a neutral player will determine where you land in the site. Neutral players will get a suspect timer on entering.

    • To succeed in the Ice Heist, players will need to be within 5,000m of the new guided tanker objects, and using the radial menu, right click menu, or selected items, start ‘guidance’ on the tanker and it will start flying towards their factions' loading bay/scaffolding for extraction.

    • Groups will earn 1 point for each tanker ship guided back to respective home bases.

    • The first side to reach 10 points will be rewarded and will increase corruption/suppression accordingly.

    • A tanker can only be guided by one player. The tanker will stop being guided if the ship guiding it is no longer within 10km or is destroyed.

    • Be aware that there are opposing NPCs which will focus ships which are guiding tankers.

    AIR Daily Goals:

    AIR now presents Daily Goals, a perfect opportunity to gain rewards for activities you’re already doing or have something to do when you’re unsure what’s next!

    • After each downtime, players are assigned a set of four daily goals, each aligning with distinct career paths: Explorer, Industrialist, Enforcer, and Soldier of Fortune.

    • The set of goals is the same for all players each day.

    • Successful completion of these goals rewards players with both ISK and EverMarks.

    • Players who accomplish at least two of the four daily goals are additionally granted Skill Points.

    • The AIR daily goal interface has been integrated into the AIR Opportunities window.

    • ISK rewards are taxed by the player’s corporation and EM rewards are duplicated, giving the same amount of EM to the player as well as the player’s corporation.

    • All unclaimed Corporation Projects and AIR Daily Goals rewards that are older than 30 days will be claimed automatically. This process will start in January 2024.

    • AIR Daily Goals replaces the Daily Challenges system.

    Corporation Projects:

    • The Scan Signature project type has been updated. Now only the first successful scan of a particular cosmic signature by a particular character is recognized as a contribution to the project. This still allows multiple characters to contribute by scanning the same signature each, but each character can contribute to the project only once per particular signature.

    Missions & NPCs:

    The Angel Cartel and Guristas Pirates epic arcs have been reset back to their original standing bonuses and cooldowns.

    • The final end of arc missions are now granting 30% faction standing bonuses again.

    • The missions are once again on a 90-day cooldown before they can be repeated.

    Structures & Deployables:

    • Zarzakh has gained more office space and now has 64 office slots.

    • Fixed the Epic Arc Opportunity Images sometimes being too bright.

    Missions:

    • Accepted Missions are now automatically tracked in the Info Panel.

    • Fixed an issue where travel based objective chains would not be available when a mission was tracked in an offered state.


    Patch Notes For 2023-12-08.2

    • Disabled opening AIR Opportunities on first dock.


    Patch Notes For 2023-12-08.1

    Features & Changes:

    Factional Warfare:

    • Fixed an unintended interaction with direct enlistment where you could remote repair or provide remote assistance to someone who is directly enlisted with a militia with a PVP timer in the same corp as you, while you are not direct enlisted in the same faction as them. This is now treated as a criminal action in high security space.

    Defect Fixes:

    User Interface:

    • Fixed a defect and exception where the stage value in the guristas FOB system could show an incorrect, very large number after a vanguard contract completed.

    Air Opportunities

    Patch Notes For 2023-12-05.1

    Features & Changes:

    Events:

    Winter Nexus Event!

    • The Winter Nexus event has returned to New Eden! This in-game event will run until downtime on January 4th 2024.

    • 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 blueprints, 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, Sansha combat boosters, and ice storm filaments.

    • A new set of daily login gifts are available over the course of the Winter Nexus event including snowballs, ice storm filaments, new Aurora Universalis skins, Sansha combat boosters, EverMarks and up to 650.000 skill points. Players can receive all of these rewards by logging in everyday between now and January 4th.

    • An expert system has been included which will allow all players, including alpha accounts, the ability to fly an Endurance and fit an Ice Mining Laser to mine ice for 4 days. 

    Universe:

    • CONCORD has updated the security ratings of Villore, Bereye, Hek, and Parchanier to 0.9, 0.9, 0.8, and 0.9, respectively, following another security audit in these systems. CONCORD does not expect further updates in the foreseeable future.

    • Several empire intelligence networks have been alerted to reported sightings of high-profile members of Arkombine arriving at The Fulcrum in Zarzakh.

    Defect Fixes:

    User Interface:

    • Fixed an exception which prevented the corruption score from updating in the info panel for the solarsystem whenever pirates captured an insurgency site.

    • The Traits tab on the Aligator is once again visible.


    Patch Notes For 2023-11-30.1

    Features & Changes:

    Universe:

    • Security audits continue throughout core Gallente space, with CONCORD reporting that the security ratings of Villore, Arnon, and Parchanier have all increased to 0.8. Bereye, the Federation’s Judicial Branch capital, received an increase in Federal garrison numbers and saw its security rating rise to 0.8 as well. In the Minmatar Republic, Hek’s security rating rose to 0.7 as RSS paramilitary police troops arrived in large numbers.

    Market:

    • Evermarks can be donated again

    • Prize ships for Alliance Tournament XIX winners have been added:

      • The new Assault Ship, named: Shapash

      • The new Heavy Assault Cruiser, named: Cybele

    • More details about the ships can be found in the Alliance Tournament XIX Wrap-up news article that will go live shortly.

    Defect Fixes:

    Technical:

    • Fixed a minor memory leak.

    • Fixed a problem where sounds were not playing after enabling audio (without restarting the client).


    Patch Notes For 2023-11-28.1

    Features & Changes:

    Universe:

    • The continuing chaos brought upon by the Pirate Insurgencies has encouraged the Gallente Federation to carry on with their security audits, with Villore’s rating increasing further to 0.7. Navy strongholds, installations, and outposts have been constructed in Arnon and Parchanier to increase their defensive power as well, raising their security to 0.7.

    • The Minmatar Republic, in response to the Angel Cartel insurgencies, has similarly built military facilities in Hek, raising its security status to 0.6.


    Patch Notes For 2023-11-24.1

    Defect Fixes:

    Gameplay:

    • Fixed an insurgency bug where after the pirates won, a FW Ihub could be invulnerable until downtime after the pirates gave it back.

    Graphics:

    • Fixed multiple issues with decals and emblems not displaying properly across several ships.

    • Fixed an issue where Aurora VFX was appearing on other SKINs.

    • Fixed the glowmap on the Thrasher Fleet Issue’s boosters.

    • Adjusted the lifetime of GPU particles for missile impact smoke.

    • Fixed the gold sheen on the Alliance Tournament Monument in Manarq.

    • Fixed the Praetor I’s shader issues in preview windows.


    Patch Notes For 2023-11-23.1

    Features & Changes:

    Pirate Insurgencies:

    • Increased the amount of suppression gained when the empire militias complete insurgency sites by 33%.

    • Decreased forecasting time for future insurgencies from 48h to 24h.

    • When a former insurgency FOB system ends the period of pirate occupancy after a pirate victory, it will now start at 100 points over the victory point threshold required to make the IHub vulnerable, instead of 500 points over the threshold.

    • Pirate insurgencies will now only spread within the empire space controlled by their primary insurgency enemies. This means that the Angel insurgency will no longer spread into Caldari/Gallente regions, and the Guristas insurgency will no longer spread into Amarr/Minmatar regions.

    • The factional warfare HQ systems for each empire (Onnamon, Intaki, Mehatoor, and Amo) have a base suppression level of 2 and can never drop below that level.

    Universe:

    • The dramatic appearance of the pirate insurgencies has caused the Gallente Federation to begin a security audit of some potentially vulnerable key systems. The Federation Senate headquarters system of Villore has been deemed insufficiently secure given its proximity to the warzone and relatively low security levels. Multiple new Federation Navy facilities have begun appearing in the Villore system and this increased Navy presence has caused the security status of Villore to increase from 0.5 to 0.6.


    Patch Notes For 2023-11-22.1

    Defect Fixes:

    User Interface:

    • Fixed a rare issue where solarsystem info panel would fail to display if the corruption/suppression service timed out when a client was trying to connect.


    Patch Notes For 2023-11-21.1

    Features & Changes:

    Insurgencies:

    • Insurgency Sites will now give suspect timers to neutral players who are not enlisted with an appropriate militia for the campaign, similar to existing Factional Warfare complexes.

      • For Angel Insurgencies, players who are not in the Minmatar Militia, Amarr Militia or Angel Cartel will get a suspect timer for entering outpost raid sites.

      • For Guristas Insurgencies, players who are not in the Caldari Militia, Gallente Militia or Guristas Pirates will get a suspect timer for entering outpost raid sites.

      • It’s no longer possible to enter a gated insurgency site with a Warp Core Stabilizer fitted.

    • Added a note that says “There currently are no active Insurgencies” for the Insurgency Systems agency page if no insurgencies are in the active state.

    • There is now a pop-up warning when activating a stargate which would take you to a corruption 5 pirate insurgency system.

    • Insurgencies will now display “LAWLESS” next to the security status in the solarsystem info panel when corruption 5 has been reached.

    • Corruption 5 High and Low Security systems will now appear in bright red on the autopilot route, and Lawless is included in the tooltip.

    Science & Industry:

    • Added missing Nanite Engineering skill requirement to manufacture the Medium Auxiliary Nano Pump II blueprint. The small, large and capital variations all required this skill at 1. This will mean that it will now benefit from the 1% time reduction bonus per level.

    • The evemail message you receive for capturing a dungeon while under the effects of suppression will now correctly contain the bonus LP you got and not just the flat value.

    New Player Experience:

    • Improved off-path handling throughout the experience.

    Opportunities:

    • Removed the QA option from the context menu of enlistment opportunities.

    • Tracked Homefront Operation, Factional Warfare, and Pirate Insurgency opportunities will no longer be untracked when they become 6 or more jumps away.

    • The opportunity timer will now visibly count down when the tooltip is open.

    • Fixed an opportunity info panel issue where the jump count and button could disappear from the entries.

    User Interface:

    • Fixed an Issue where the enlistment window could appear blank if a player has stacked it or docked it in another window.

    • Fixed text being obscured by the icons to swap factions and to the insurgency dashboard in the FW Map window.


    Patch Notes For 2023-11-20.1

    Features & Changes:

    Insurgencies:

    • When a system is at corruption or suppression level 5, more sites will now spawn aside from the Open ADV-1 and Open ADV-5.

    • Tooltip appears when hovering over a hyperlink.

    • Fixed elements of the Zarzakh agency page so that it is now formatted correctly, and text doesn’t go out of bounds or overlaps in different languages.

    NPE:

    • Fixed an issue causing the NPE to become unfocused when guided to accept a Career Agent mission.

    • Players will now be instructed to track a goal during the ACP Career Path introduction.


    Patch Notes For 2023-11-15.1

    Features & Changes:

    Corporation:

    • Players will receive an EVE Mail Notification when leaving their player corp on their own volition.

    • The EVE Mail Notification received when getting kicked out from the corp now includes the information about 30 day auto claim for corporation project rewards.

    Missions & NPCs:

    • The Amarr now mutually dislike The Deathless by -2.0 like all other empire factions.

    • The Guristas now hate the Caldari state by -9.0, instead of having neutral standings towards them.

  • Community Beat for 16 February

    16. February 2024 14:37


    Hello spacefriends, it's time for another Community Beat!

    Before we get started, I'd like to take this opportunity to say hi. My name is CCP Lumi - I'm the newest member of the Community Team. I'll mainly be focusing on player gatherings and of course, I'll be helping out the team with a variety of other projects.

    Now, let's look at some of the cool things that are going on across the community...

    Starting Guide to Faction Warfare

    For those of you that have wanted to dip your toes in Faction Warfare, CrazinessOfTheInternet made a starting guide! Check out his video below.

    In the coming weeks, he will continue his series with frigate builds for each faction.

    Frigate Free For All

    Speaking of frigates, it's time to mark you calendars! On Saturday 20 April, A Band Apart and Stay Frosty are hosting their 10th annual Frigate Free For All. Thousands of fully fitted frigates will be handed out to everyone who wants one!

    Frigate Free For All

    Battle in Delve

    On the topic of large fights, we came across this video from a recent 300 billion battle that happened in Delve. Here's the battle report.

    Art Corner

    As always, capsuleers continue to impress us with their brilliant artistic skills. Over on r/Eve, T'Amber shared some of his amazing ship skin prototype designs. If you head over to his Twitch channel, he might design your request next!

    Cpt Armarlio recently added posters of the Absolution, Dramiel, Prospect and Sabre to his Etsy page. Have a look:

  • New Vanguard playtest coming soon

    Attention Vanguard, 

    The battlefield is calling once more, and your service is required. Preparations for the First Strike February Playtest have begun, and seven days from now legions of Vanguard will go boots-on-the-ground for the third time, doing the Deathless’ bidding, earning amazing rewards, and contributing to corruption in New Eden. The playtest will run from 22-26 February and is open to all Omega players. 

    PREPARE FOR DEPLOYMENT 

    On 22 February, the doors to the battlefield will open for the next First Strike Playtest, and Omega warclones will once again take up arms and fight for glory and chaos. In addition to proving your loyalty to the Deathless by completing contracts and impacting the level of corruption in New Eden, you will have the opportunity to earn fantastic rewards by proving your mettle on the frontlines. These rewards include the Atron and Talwar Arkombine Arisen SKINs, as well as PLEX. 

    Vanguard Feb rewards

     As in the previous playtests, you will need Omega to get Founders’ Access to EVE Vanguard. The EVE and New Eden Stores are offering a Warclone Omega Bundle, giving you 14 days Omega access, along with the Astero Arkombine Arisen SKIN for a limited time. Make sure you upgrade to Omega so you don’t miss out. 

    NES Offer for Vanguard

    Make sure you are ready to go on 22 February, and we will see you planetside.
