  • Mass Test on Singularity - 19 May

    15. May 2020 19:00


    Greetings,

    We are conducting a mass test on the Singularity test server on Tuesday, 19 May at 17:00 UTC.

    What are we testing?

    After polishing, we will once again test the new graphical update to the travel system with a focus on any gameplay implications it may have.

    The test participants should pay attention to how the jump effects look and feel, and how readable the game information is for the tunnels. The team is on the lookout for any exceptions or tech issues that haven’t evidenced themselves during in house testing (bug reports from in-client most appreciated). We are also interested in gathering feedback in many areas, such as: - Smoothness and timing of jump sequences - Awareness of difference of tunnel types (e.g., Location, Security Level, Travel Method) - Tunnel lighting and brightness - Lightning brightness and intensity - Queasiness or discomfort from using the tunnels - Technical concerns (performance, camera edge cases, driver issues, crashes, etc.)

    We would appreciate a variety of ship classes and sizes to be brought to the test, since the camera is repositioned by data inferred from the hull.

    How to connect to Singularity?

    Accessing Singularity is very easy! All you need to do is change the server from Tranquility to Singularity in the bottom right corner of the launcher and log in as normal. More detailed instructions are available here.

    Greetings Birthday Capsuleers,

    It is coming up to an incredible 17 years since EVE Online launched! Thank you, incredible and adventurous Capsuleers, for the fantastic memories and for continuing to write the history of New Eden!

    The birthday is rapidly approaching, so get ready for a new event called the Capsuleer Day Clash and a daily Capsuleer Day Celebration login rewards!


    Capsuleer Day Celebration

    Capsuleer Day Clash

    In addition, to commemorate the anniversary of the birth of Capsuleers in New Eden and earn goodwill with the independent pilots of the cluster, CONCORD, the Empires and Upwell are preparing a series of gifts for Capsuleers. However, a large-scale attack from the Triglavian Collective against their joint production and research facilities threatens to disrupt the celebration! CONCORD is requesting that Capsuleers seek out these besieged facilities in order to drive away the Triglavian forces and claim extra gifts.

    There will be Capsuleer Day Clash event sites available from 7 May to 20 May throughout New Eden, restricted to allow Battlecruisers only, with more advanced sites all over Lowsec, Nullsec and wormhole space. Rewards will include new SKINs, limited time cerebral accelerators, limited time standings boosters and special limited time 10 pilot Needlejack Filaments!

    UPDATE: This event is extended until 11 May. This will give everyone a chance to get even more Skill Point Rewards and try their luck in the Abyss.



    You loved the Skilling Spree, you loved the Chilling Spree, and you loved Skilling is Just a Means of Communication. Now, as part of the Eclipse Quadrant, it's time to dive back into the depths of the Abyss and take on whatever comes your way with the new Skillers in the Abyss event!

    Log in between 11:00 UTC on 28 April and 11:00 UTC on 4 May and accept increasingly deadly daily challenges where you will have to kill either Abyssal Drones, Drifters, Sleepers or Triglavians in Abyssal Deadspace for Skill Point rewards.

    If challenges remain uncompleted, they will be reset at the next downtime. They also do not need to be completed in order.

    Happy skilling!

  • EVE Symphony Stream

    24. April 2020 23:20


    Hello spacefriends!

    Today is a special day - the 24th of April 2020 is 7 years to the day of the amazing EVE symphony event that was held at Fanfest 2013 for EVE Online's 10th anniversary.

    Now that our Sunday night streams have been occurring with some regularity, viewers have been suggesting ideas for things they'd love to to see on the stream. At the top of the list is a focus on the classic EVE music that we've known and loved for almost 20 years.

    Given this timing for the symphony and the feedback from players, we figured it would be the perfect moment to revisit that amazing event and bring in some very special guests.

    Joining us this Sunday, 26 April from 19:30 EVE time on CCP's Twitch channel will be:

    • Jón Hallur Haraldsson - composer of the original EVE Online soundtrack
    • Baldur Baldursson (CCP Oldboy) - EVE Online Audio Director
    • Kristján Guðjónsson - composer and arranger for the EVE symphony event

    We'll be streaming the EVE symphony from Fanfest 2013. Before, between and afterwards we'll be talking to those involved to learn more about what went in to making the event a success and also the history of the classic music of EVE Online.

    We hope we'll see you there!

  • Rooks and Kings stream with Lord Maldoror

    17. April 2020 20:15


    After a short break we're coming back this weekend with another Sunday stream for your enjoyment! This will be the third such stream we've hosted on CCP's Twitch channel following on from the very successful Clear Skies marathon with series creator Ian Chisholm and the EVE cinematic retrospective with EVE Cinematic Lead CCP Zond 3.

    Once again we have another very special guest for you - one of the most storied and (in)famous figures to ever emerge from New Eden - Lord Maldoror from Rooks and Kings.

    Rooks and Kings became legendary for their innovative theorycrafting, brilliant mechanical execution and the amazing videos produced and narrated by Lord Maldoror which lionised their exploits. Many of the combat techniques pioneered by Rooks and Kings found their way into the permanent meta of EVE Online, and the terms they coined are now a part of every EVE player's vocabulary. Their influence on the game cannot be overstated.

    Perhaps best known for the Clarion Call series, Rooks and Kings has also released many other classic videos such as Anatomy of a Fight, Iron Clad and The False Tower. They also featured prominently in the famous This is EVE trailer which showcased their notorious pipebomb traps.

    Although there is enough existing Rooks and Kings material to run several streams - and we will be showing some of their most popular videos - I'm excited to let you know that Lord Maldoror has been digging through his archives and has uncovered a significant amount of never-before-seen Rooks and Kings material. I've had a preview of some of it and I think you will like what you see!

    During the stream Lord Maldoror will also be sharing his anecdotes and knowledge as he pulls back the veil on Rooks and Kings.

    So tune in to CCP's Twitch channel on Sunday, 19 April from 19:30 EVE time. It's going to be a great show!

  • EVE Russia 2020 Canceled

    16. April 2020 17:00


    Dear Capsuleers,

    In light of the continuing global developments and restrictions surrounding the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, we have taken the decision to cancel the EVE Russia 2020 event in Moscow.

    We know how deeply disappointing this news will be for our wonderful Russian-speaking community, but we feel it is absolutely crucial to continue following the most responsible course of action and prioritize the safety and well-being of our attendees, our staff and of course the general public. Therefore, this necessary decision was taken after an in-depth and serious review.

    We wanted to get this information to you as swiftly as possible in order to allow you to make the necessary changes to any travel or accommodation arrangements that you may have made. We will begin the process of ticket reimbursement shortly.

    Fly safe, Capsuleers.
