  • 2018/12/11 - December Release Deployment Information

    7. December 2018 13:00


    We're super happy to announce that deployment of the December release is scheduled for next Tuesday, December 11th during a slightly extended daily downtime!

    Downtime will begin at the usual time of 11:00 UTC and will run for a total of 30 minutes. It is expected that Tranquility will be back online and accepting connections by 11:30 UTC.

    The December release brings a whole host of features and improvements, including the first iteration on wardec changes, as well as the new Rodiva and Zarmazd class Triglavian logistics cruisers and remote repair modules to complement them.

    Certain types of planets in New Eden will start to see the rare appearance of Auroras at their poles, and the Etana class Alliance Tournament prize cruiser also receives a unique new model.

    In addition to this, quality of life and balance changes will be packaged with this release, including a number of UI and UX tweaks, as well as improved new player experience flow and adjustments to the respawn rates of certain nullsec anomalies.

    For more granular detail on what's coming in this release, take a look at the full patch notes!

    The holiday season is approaching, and the time is drawing nearer for the annual community organized "Santa Spirit" event.

    Preparations are already underway and on December 14th, the event will occur in a system to be revealed near you!

    Santa Spirit has been running since 2012 and this year donations are being accepted for the annual giveaway and contests, which will include a Ship Scramble, Tiered 1v1 battle, and a system wide treasure hunt.

    If you'd like to donate, or be part of the event, be sure to head on over to the official forums for more information in this thread!

  • Old Starbase Navigation Structures Display Issue Resolved

    27. November 2018 13:00


    During today's downtime all existing starbase Jump Portal Arrays, Cynosural Generator Array, and Cynosural System Jammer structures were offlined automatically at the conclusion of the two week navigation structure transition period.

    Although the structures have been offlined successfully, a data caching issue is preventing some EVE UI elements from reflecting the fact that these structures are no longer operational.

    This issue is causing old Jump Portal Array connections to continue appearing on the map, as well as old Cynosural Generator Arrays to continue appearing in right click jump menus and the capital navigation window.

    This is purely a display issue and attempting to jump to these structures will not work.

    We are working on a fix to refresh these UI elements so that they stop displaying the offline structures and hope to have this issue resolved soon.

    UPDATE!

    This issue has been hotfixed live, and is now resolved.

    If any pilots are still seeing these display issues, restaring the EVE Online client will resolve the caching issue.

  • Notice - Expired Crimson Harvest Cerebral Accelerator Blueprints Still Active!

    27. November 2018 12:00


    While Cerebral Accelerators for the Crimson Harvest were successfuly expired today on schedule, the blueprints used to construct them remain active due to an error in today's point release (Onslaught 1.9).

    At this stage, it is still possible to construct expired cerebral accelerators from these blueprints, which may cause confusion for some pilots.

    We aim to rectify this issue in the next point release as soon as possible, and apologize for any confusion caused.

  • Final Reminder: Starbase Navigation Structures Will Go Offline Tomorrow!

    26. November 2018 15:00


    As announced in the navigation structures dev blog, an earlier news update, and last week’s EVE Pulse, the old starbase Jump Bridge, Cynosural System Jammer, and Cynosural Generator Array structures have been operational alongside the new Upwell navigation structures for two weeks after the Onslaught expansion to support a smoother transition to the new system.

    __Tomorrow, Tuesday November 27th marks the scheduled end of this transition period. __

    __During daily downtime tomorrow all online starbase Jump Bridge, Cynosural System Jammer, and Cynosural Generator Array structures will be offlined automatically. __

    Owners of these structures will still be able to unanchor and recover them in preparation for future reimbursement.

  • Abyssal Tiebreaker Weather Effects Postponed Until Next Deployment

    21. November 2018 16:30


    Due to a build issue, one change that was initially included in today's patch notes was not released with EVE Online: Onslaught 1.4 during today's daily downtime.

    The patch notes for today's deployment have been edited to remove the following entry:

    • Added an effect to Abyssal Deadspace PvP (Proving grounds) to prevent stalemates
    • Effect activates 8 minutes after a fight starts
    • Effect lowers all ship resistances by 25%

    This change was not deployed with today's patch, and will be included in an upcoming point release in the next few days.

    Apologies for any confusion this omission from today's patch may have caused!
