    The event organizer also has a few plans up their sleeve to make the viewing experience as entertaining as possible. Everyone watching the stream will be able to participate in two different activities:

    Best Twitch Clip – We're going to choose the five coolest Twitch Clips people make of the tournament each day and give the players that made them a set of +5 implants. From those clips we'll select the best clip of the day and that player will get 5 Large Skill Injectors.

    Chat participation – Throughout the day SKINs will be raffled among all viewers. The winners will be contacted at the end of the day via Twitch direct message with further instructions.

  • Recruitment Program Changes - Triple The Skill Points For New Pilots!

    8. April 2019 13:00


    One of the most important decisions new pilots need to make is how to start training and what skills to specialize in first.

    We're super happy to announce that as of the April release tomorrow, this decision will become a little easier for rookie capsuleers, with a substantial increase in the Skill Point reward for joining via the Recruitment Program.

    As of tomorrow, pilots who create an account via the recruitment program will receive three times as many Skill Points when they sign up!

    This in an increase from 250,000 to 750,000 Skill Points!

    There's nothing more we love than welcoming new pilots to New Eden, and hopefully this increase in initial training will further assist in making our new rookie capsuleers feel at home!

    If you're reading this and are looking to sign up to fly with a friend, have them visit this page and create a recruitment invitation today. Likewise, if you're an experienced veteran who's looking to bring their friends into the fray, do the same and you can both earn awesome rewards!

  • EVE Invasion World Tour – EVE Vegas Tickets On Sale Today!

    2. April 2019 18:00


    We’re super excited to announce that tickets are going on sale for EVE Vegas 2019 in less than an hour!

    We kicked off the EVE Invasion World Tour in The Netherlands two weeks ago with EVEsterdam and are super stoked to be heading for the next stop on the map – St. Petersburg for the Russian leg of the tour on May 4th.

    One of the key events of the 2019 EVE Invasion World Tour, EVE Vegas started as a humble player gathering many moons ago and has now evolved in an event that rivals EVE Fanfest in terms of attendee numbers, content and reveals.

    This EVE Vegas will be the penultimate stop on the World Tour Calendar before the grand finale in London this November, and we’re hoping that this year is going to continue the tradition of being the biggest, baddest EVE Vegas ever!

    Occurring from October 25-27th, EVE Vegas 2019 will be moving to a new venue this year as we continue the tradition of the party in the desert at The Flamingo Hotel & Casino (this also means that we’ll hopefully see some pink artwork, much to the dismay of our grimdark graphic designers!).

    An Incredible venue for a gathering around all things internet spaceships, The Flamingo has an expansive convention center that we’ll be using to host a whole range of roundtables, presentations and gatherings, along with the US leg of the EVE Invasion Tournament Series.

    The EVE Vegas Party!

    In addition to this, we’ll also be moving the Saturday night EVE Vegas party to a new venue this year, directly opposite The Flamingo at the incredible OMNIA Nightclub at Caesars Palace.

    The three-level venue includes an outdoor terrace with a wide panoramic view of the Strip and is home to many of the best-known DJs and artists in the world.

    Party only tickets for this event are also now available for purchase as part of the commencement of EVE Vegas ticket sales!

    Where Do I Get My Tickets?

    EVE Vegas has been sold out for the last five years running, so be sure to secure your tickets as soon as you can to get the best deals on both ticket prices and accommodation.

    You can also book your room at The Flamingo with a substantial discount during the event with the EVE Vegas Room Code, but please be aware that the best rates will only be available for a limited amount of time, and on a first come, first serve basis.

    For all the information you need, including details of the room code for booking accomodation, head on over to the EVE Vegas Eventbrite ticket page, which details more about EVE Vegas itself, along with additional events that are on sale now, or are up and coming with announcements still to be made.

    ## Tickets will go on sale at 17:00 UTC / 10:00 PDT

    We can’t wait to see as many of you as possible there!

  • Exploit Notification - Use Of ESS In Seeker Investigation Sites!

    1. April 2019 18:00


    We've recently been working on developing a fix for an unintended use of the ESS in Seeker Investigation Sites, which are part of the New Player Experience.

    From the release of this news item - 16:00 UTC on 2019/04/01 - it will be considered an exploit if an ESS is deployed on the grid of any Seekers Investigation Site.

    Any pilots found to be using this exploit will be reprimanded in accordance with the EVE Online EULA and Terms of Service.

    We are currently working on a fix for this issue, which will be deployed as soon as possible.

  • 2019/04/02 - Mass Test On Singularity!

    1. April 2019 16:00


    We're happy to announce that we're planning a mass test on Singularity tomorrow that will be used to check over the performance of the EVE Online client for the upcoming April release.

    We initially held a mass test on March 28th that didn't go quite to plan as we found an issue that was causing a substantial number of client crashes.

    Huge thanks to everyone who assisted us with this test and subsequent faultfinding so that we could poinpoint the cause. This mass test will check that the fixes we've made are indeed working, as well as checking over the general performance of the EVE client in the runup to the April release.

    If you're interested in joining us, please come along to Singularity at 17:00 UTC tomorrow, April 2nd.

    Participants will receive a reward of two million skillpoints (available only on the test server Singularity).

    Please note that numbers, art assets, and other game properties on the test servers are not final and may change before they are released.
