  • Invasion Tournament Series
    published on October 23rd, 2019 at 11:45 AM

    If you'd like to discuss this devblog, feel free to head on over to the feedback thread on the official forums!

    UPDATE 23/10/2019: Ships & Fittings for EVE Vegas, along with the bracket and information about teams have been released.

    UPDATE 04/10/2019: Rules and the sign up page for EVE Vegas is now available.

    Pilots,

    The EVE Invasion World Tour is taking us to several locations around the globe this year and every event will feature a single elimination 2v2 tournament to find the most bloodthirsty PvPers each region has to offer.

    Brave Capsuleers who decide to take on this challenge will be fighting for more than just the title, PLEX and bragging rights. Every winning team from all seven locations will be invited for a paid trip to CCP’s home in Reykjavik to showcase their prowess in battle and compete against each other at EVE Fanfest 2020!

    For those of you who cannot directly participate in the competition, we have prepared a Prediction Bracket Challenge. This little contest will let everyone submit their predictions for a chance to win one of five prizes consisting of swag and codes for digital items in EVE Online.

    We hope that the EVE Invasion Tournament Series will deliver a solid performance of sportsmanship, destruction and create unforgettable moments throughout the year for all participants and live stream viewers around the world.

    To be clear, this series is not designed nor intended to replace or fill the gap made by the Alliance Tournament taking a break in 2019. Rest assured, CCP is committed to carrying on the tradition of yearly Alliance contests in the future that many players get to love.

    In the meantime, all members of the community who are looking to organize their own tournament are encouraged to reach out to EVE’s community team to discuss ways CCP can support your efforts. We have set aside internal resources to support selected player-organized competitions in 2019 by providing limited Thunderdome support and offering digital rewards to up the stakes whenever possible!

    We’re looking forward to collaborating with you and will be evaluating all requests on a case-by-case basis. Please send an email to [email protected] at least 90 days before the time you wish to host your event and please include dates, format, desired support as well as any other important information about your proposal.

    This blog will function as a hub to store all the relevant information about the EVE Invasion Tournament Series like brackets, sign-ups, ruleset and links to forum discussions. Make sure to bookmark this page and keep a close eye on CCP channels for more details.

    FORMAT


    • 2v2 single elimination tournament.
    • Best of One (Bo1) bracket with Best of Three (Bo3) Semis and Grand Finals.
    • 32/16 teams limit.

  • Redesigning Audio in Hangars
    published on October 21st, 2019 at 11:45 AM

    Greetings, Space Pilots,

    Today we would like to share with you one of the cool projects the Audio Team at CCP has been working on behind the scenes. Same as with our other efforts to set EVE Online for a thriving third decade the Audio Team took a critical look at the current music and sounds that accompany pilots across the New Eden when docked in hangars and stations.

    This area of the game has not been changed for quite a while now and the team really felt like it could use some improvements to achieve a more modern-sounding environment that can also be dynamically changed based on various external factors.

    One of the goals was to create a different sonic signature based on factions, player stations, and Citadels. For example, we want Minimatar to use a foundry background feel that is mixed with loads of random and diverse low-tech sound emitters: big pipes adding low frequencies, welding at different distances and metal scraping to make the environment more alive and sounding overall metallic and rusty. To make it really unique, the team went on a field recording trip to a big steam factory in the UK where they recorded specific and unique sounding metal and machinery sounds



    Some of the original background sound from the current EVE hangars have been kept, re-mastered, and mixed into this new environment to keep some of the original flavors. What’s really exciting is that we will be able to trigger different individual elements depending on how many capsuleers are docked in a station, to make the environment sound more or less busy.

    To have something unique we ended up going quite deep in the process of re-designing those hangars. Currently, we are in the process of re-creating the acoustic rendering of those places with some custom recorded reverbs. The Caldari is using a custom-made tonal laboratory background sound, mixed with some high-tech sounding randomized audio emitters as well as object-specific sound emitters like the big lighted tube in the middle of the hangar which is sounding like the pulsing heart for this space.



    The PA announcements in those videos are placeholders used to illustrate how they change the environment making it more alive and tangible. However, when the hangar re-design hits the live servers in the near future we are aiming to have unique lines for each New Eden factions.

    Starting today for the next couple of weeks we are accepting suggestions for faction-specific lines that will be later reviewed, recorded and added into the game! Before you head over to the dedicated thread on official EVE Online forums to share your ideas, please familiarize yourself with these simple criteria:

    • You can suggest as many lines as you can
    • Lines should not be longer than a couple of sentences
    • Lines must be specific to only one faction
    • Lines should be kept within the lore of EVE Online
    • Lines must be in English

    Capsuleers, we need your announcements! Contribute to shaping the servicing infrastructure of space.


  • EVE Invasion World Tour: Round Seven - EVE Vegas 2019!
    published on October 14th, 2019 at 11:45 AM

    If you'd like to discuss this dev blog, you can do so over in the comments thread on the official forums!

    Hello Glorious Capsuleers!

    Once again, it’s October. This can only mean one thing. CCP are gearing up to head back to the good old US of A for EVE Vegas 2019!

    With less than two weeks until EVE Vegas kicks off, we’re putting the final touches on the presentation schedule, the additional activities, the kick ass party that’ll be happening at OMNIA on Saturday night and a whole host of other madness for the weekend.

    We’ve got a brand-new venue this year – The Flamingo Hotel & Casino, and an amazing line up of presentations from both players and developers, roundtables, the silent auction, the legendary Saturday night party that’s also hosted in an entirely new venue this year and some crazy axe throwing that proved to be pretty popular at EVE North earlier in the year!

    Tickets are still selling strong and it’s looking like EVE Vegas is going to be massive again this year, firmly taking the crown of the largest EVE Online gathering of 2019. We’ve still got a few tickets left at this stage, so if you haven’t already picked up your EVE Vegas 2019 Access Pass, then now is the time to do so – we anticipate that we’ll be sold out well before the event kicks off on October 25th.

    Screenshot 1920x1080

    Checking In At EVE Vegas 2019

    You’ll be able to check in early and collect your EVE Vegas 2019 Access Pass, as well as tickets and wristbands for additional events that you’re attending from 14:00 on Thursday, October 24th the day before EVE Vegas 2019 kicks off.

    Our incredible team of volunteers let by Greygal will be on hand to make sure you have everything you need and that you’re checked in as quickly and smoothly as possible.

    Check in will continue throughout each day of the event during program hours for those who arrive a little later.

    • Reno 1

    Over the course of the weekend, EVE Vegas attendees will get the chance to try out the latest build of EVE Echoes in this room.

    • Reno 2

    This will be the primary roundtable room for the duration of the weekend, hosting all our developer roundtables over the course of EVE Vegas.

    Streaming!

    All the major events, announcements and information from EVE Vegas 2019 will be streamed live on the CCP Twitch Channel for free, so if you can’t attend, you won’t miss out!

    All content from the main presentation room will be live streamed over the course of the weekend, while presentations from the secondary presentation room will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube as part of the EVE Vegas 2019 playlist once the event concludes!

    Assisting us with the livestream this year we’ll have BjornBee, who’ll be co-hosting with CCP Antiquarian over the course of the weekend.

    We’ll also have the Streamfleet crew working as hard as ever behind the scenes to make sure that the stream runs smoothly – if you see this crew when you’re in Vegas, give them a huge hug – they’ve been working hard all year to bring streaming content to the wider community outside World Tour events!

    Keep your eyes on the news and the CCP Twitch channel for more details in the coming days that will include the full streaming schedule. Be sure to follow us on twitter and facebook for more updates over the course of the EVE Vegas weekend!

    image

    Additional Activities!

    Over the course of the EVE Vegas weekend we’ll have a few extra activities outside the presentation schedule itself.

    Here’s a quick rundown of what’ll be going on!

    image

    Axe Throwing – Thursday October 24th – 19:30

    We had an amazing time at BATL Axe Throwing in Toronto during EVE North, so we’re bringing a new tradition (sort of!) to EVE Vegas too!

    We’ll be heading to Axe Monkeys Las Vegas to throw some sharp pointy metal at walls. This will include hatchets, axes and even ninja stars, so if you want to get your Shinobi on and see how good you are at throwing sharp things around, be sure to head on over to Eventbrite and pick up your tickets for this awesome additional event!

    image

    Pub Crawl – Friday October 25th – 19:00

    A couple of years back we experienced an amazing pub crawl – away from the strip over in the old heart of Las Vegas.

    The Friday night Pub Crawl has been an indispensable part of the EVE Vegas conference for years. Many memorable stories have been created in and out of bars in different parts of Las Vegas, and the event has proven to be a great night for developers and players to kick things off and socialize over a drink, two drinks, many drinks...

    Buses will transport participants to and from Flamingo, with each attendee getting specially-designed poker chips to use as payment at the venues.

    Each Pub Crawl group will be hosted by a designated EVE Online developer, with sign-up for each group opening at the EVE Vegas registration desk on Friday at 2pm.

    You can grab your tickets to the Pub Crawl over on the EVE Vegas Eventbrite page too!

    image

    Saturday Night Party!

    This year we’re moving the Saturday night EVE Vegas party across the strip to the incredible OMNIA nightclub at Caesar’s Palace.

    We’ll be hosting in both the Heart of OMNIA and out on the roof terrace that overlooks the strip too, with an open bar for all EVE Vegas attendees.

    The party kicks off at 19:30 and of course, we’ll have an exclusive Permaband performance as part of the evening!

    Attendees should be aware that this year, there will be a dress code for the whole evening.

    image

    You can find more information on the OMNIA dress code over on their website, as pictured above.

    They’ve also provided us with a definition of the dress code too:

    • No Sneakers, Tennis Shoes, Work Boots or Sandals (Male)
    • regardless of Brand Name or Value
    • No Athletic Wear
    • No Shorts
    • No Hats (Male)

    image

    Charity Ventures

    As a part of EVE Vegas, each year we host several charity initiatives to raise funds for a worthy cause.

    This year, we’ll once again be looking to donate proceeds that are raised during EVE Vegas 2019 to AbleGamers.

    Character Avatar Buttons!

    This year our amazing EVE Vegas volunteers will be manning the button factory to provide attendees with badges custom-printed with their in-game avatars! At EVE Vegas 2018 the community raised $5,562 just with the buttons alone – our amazing volunteers are hoping we beat that record this year!

    CONCORD Pilot Licenses!

    For the first time ever, the EVE Vegas Volunteers will be custom printing your very own CONCORD Pilots License on demand!

    These plastic ID-style cards have been issued by the CONCORD Assembly and will let it be known to all other residents of New Eden that you are, indeed, a capsuleer!
    Both the avatar buttons and pilots’ licenses will be available starting Thursday afternoon through mid-day Sunday at the registration desk area. All you need to do is donate to Able Gamers in any amount to get yours!

    (Thanks to Rixx Javix for designing these!)

    Silent Auction

    In addition to the buttons and pilots’ licenses, our fabulous volunteers will be hosting a silent auction over the course of EVE Vegas. There will be a variety of EVE collectible items, 3D printed ship models, player-created art work, and more.
    If you'd like to donate something to the silent auction, just bring it by the EVE Vegas registration area from Thursday afternoon through early Saturday morning, and we'll add it to the auction!

    Call For Swag!

    Want to promote your EVE corporation, alliance or other EVE-related service? Stickers, coasters, cards, postcards, pins, balls, whatever!

    Bring them to one of the volunteers by 6pm Wednesday, October 23rd and they’ll include it into the EVE Vegas Welcome loot bags! You'll find our volunteers in the event area at the Flamingo.

    They'll be stuffing between 1,000 – 1,200 welcome bags!

    You can bring as much or as little swag as you want to put in the bags - if it's less than 1,000 – 1,200, your swag will be put into random bags.

    If you won't be there by Wednesday 6pm, contact Greygal on the EVE Vegas Volunteers discord to plan to mail your swag in advance, or you can drop it off at any time and the volunteers will put your swag on the registration tables to hand out as people check in.

    Of course, you can always hand out your swag personally throughout the weekend!

    image

    The EVE Store!

    As always at EVE Vegas, we'll see the EVE Store present throughout the event so that pilots from across the globe can pick up swag at great prices.

    From t-shirts to hoodies, glasses and all manner of spaceship related paraphernalia, there's something for everyone!

    Come along and check it out during the event to score great deals on spaceship swag!

    Twitter-Header 1500x500

    EVE Vegas Milestones!

    While we’re always looking toward the future at EVE Vegas, we also want to celebrate the past – including milestones and achievements of members of the community!

    Weddings? 100th birthdays? 70th wedding anniversaries? Other crazy milestones in your real life or EVE life?

    Shoot the Community Team an email on [email protected] if you’d like to share with us!

    image

    The CCP Art Corner!

    After it proved popular at many other events and at EVE Vegas last year, we’ll also have a dedicated EVE art corner that pilots can drop in and be part of.

    CCP Myrkur and CCP BlueScreen will be looking over some of the art assets in EVE Online and showing off some effects, graphics and fun stuff, so come on down and check it out to look behind the scenes of art creation in EVE Online!

    image

    EVE Vegas 2019 is getting closer and as we finish up squaring away the last of the event organization, excitement is building here at CCP.

    We’re super excited to be shipping out to the USA soon for three days of awesome spaceship fun.

    If you don’t already have your tickets, then you can pick them up at vegas.eveonline.com.

    You can also read more about EVE Vegas 2019 over on the EVE Vegas website, including more about all the additional activities and a full list of developers who’ll be attending this year.

    We’ll see you all there, or we’ll see you in twitch chat!

    On Behalf Of The EVE Vegas Team


  • KIllah Bee Resigns from the CSM
    published on October 14th, 2019 at 11:45 AM

    Greetings, citizens,

    I would like to inform you that Killah Bee decided to resign from the Council of Stellar Management due to personal reasons. CSM is a program where members dedicate their personal time to the on-going development of EVE Online and we completely understand that unexpected things happen in life. We respect Killah Bee’s decision to step down from the council and would like to thank him for his valuable input and all the feedback provided during his time on the CSM. He is eligible to run again in future elections if he desires to do so.

    Because we are only partially through this CSM term we are going to be replacing Killah Bee with another candidate that was eliminated as last during the elections in June. After re-analyzing the voting data and reaching out to the individual in question we are pleased to welcome back Sort Dragon at the Council of Stellar Management!

    Below you can find comments from both individuals:

    Killah Bee: "In the past, I’ve always said that the CSM can only be effective if its members are some of the most active members of the community. I’ve had some great success in real life lately but with that success goes the time that I am able to devote into EVE and the CSM. This is why I have decided to resign my membership to the CSM effective immediately to make room for someone with more time on their hands. I want to thank CCP and all the other CSM members for a great time I’ve had and I’ll see you again soon."

    Sort Dragon: “For the last few years I have served as the coalition leader for Dead Coalition (formerly Guardians of the Galaxy) and I'm arguably one of the most storied and known leaders in EVE. I was elected to CSM 8, 10 and 13. This will be my second time finishing out a CSM term, as I joined CSM 12 midway through the year to replace another candidate from NC., Vince Drakken, who also resigned.

    This will be my fifth CSM, and I am looking forward to continuing to work with CCP and the rest of the CSM. I want to guarantee the fruitful future of the game and I hope my contributions can help keep the game moving forward in a positive way.

    Next week I will be attending Eve Vegas. Whether you love me or hate me in-game, please come introduce yourself. I always like to listen to what people have to say at player meets and Iove getting to know the person behind the character.”

    We look forward to working with Sort Dragon and the remaining CSM members and would like to thank Killah Bee for his contribution.

    If you would like to discuss this change with other pilots, please visit the dedicated forum thread.


  • Monthly Security Report - September 2019
    published on October 4th, 2019 at 11:45 AM

    If you’d like to discuss this devblog, head on over to the comments thread on the official forums.

    Greetings wonderful Capsuleers and welcome to the Monthly Security Report for September 2019, where we'll look over the month's activity against botting, RMT and account hacking.

    As always, let's look at the raw numbers for September 2019:

    • 732 account bans for account hacking.
    • 2822 account bans for botting related activities.
    • 1706 account bans for RMT related activities.

    These numbers represent account action taken between 2019/09/01 and 2019/09/30.

    Current Focus

    Our current focus lies with providing feedback to those members of the community who come forward to provide us with reports regarding those who they suspect are botting or using other forms of client automation, as well as hitting those who you guys are all reporting of course.

    We've seen some chatter among players relating to the first wave of feedback that we've been testing, which lets pilots know when a bot report has been actioned.

    We've been watching feedback relating to this and we'll be looking to make changes and evolve the feedback loop based on suggestions from pilots across New Eden.

    With the end of the blackout, we're also currently watching player behavior very carefully to see what changes occur and to see how those who are suspected of botting or who have been reported respond to the reintroduction of local.

    A Few Reminders!

    Of course when we're talking about input automation, we'd like to stress a reminder that if pilots are caught botting, even on just one account, they'll lose EVERYTHING.

    When we ban based on solid evidence that a player is botting, it is the human behind the computer that is removed from EVE Online. Reprimand for botting is handled in this way, not on an account basis.

    This means that any accounts that are associated with the pilot who was involved in botting will be banned.

    Please bear this in mind before you engage in what is one of the most illegal and economically destructive practices in New Eden.

    We'd also like to remind pilots of the definition of input broadcasting and of course the fact that it remains against the EULA.

    Input broadcasting is defined as using a single user input to issue the same command on multiple EVE Clients. This remains a breach of the EVE Online EULA and will be actioned to the full extent of our anti-botting and anti-cheating policies.

    We need to continue to stress that any form of exploitation, client automation, input automation or botting of any kind will result in an immediate and permanent suspension of all access to EVE Online.

    What Can You Do To Help

    As always, we'll keep reinforcing this message and stressing it every month - DON'T RMT, AND DON'T GET INVOLVED WITH BOTTING.

    The most responsible thing you can do as citizen of New Eden is to say something if you see this kind of activity in game.

    Report it to us and we'll investigate and action it as soon as we can.

    We will give those involved in botting and real money trading no quarter. Those who harbor these people and profit from it will be stripped of assets and ISK that are gained through illicit means.

    By RMTing, or by harboring people who bot and RMT, you’re contributing to the real-life wallets of people who do not care about EVE, or our community. These are people who destroy the accounts of innocent players, in some instances causing irreparable damage to characters and shattering years of progress for legitimate players who play by the rules and just want to enjoy EVE.

    Most importantly, if you see botting and RMT happening – REPORT IT. Moreover, if you're being told not to report it, ignore this advice.

    Along with account hacking, botting and RMT are the most damaging illicit behaviors that harm EVE Online and all three are sometimes linked together in the same network of scumbags who want to take your stuff.

    While we don’t respond to every individual report of botting or RMT, they’re all taken 100% seriously, and are thoroughly investigated for credibility.

    Aside from reporting botters and real money trading, the biggest help you can provide is not to give these scumbags any business.

    Use Two Factor Authentication!

    We cannot stress this enough – we know how much effort goes into character development in EVE Online, and it’s worth the extra login step to protect your accounts from abuse and damage.

    Protect it all. Enable two factor authentication on all your EVE accounts, and on the email accounts that are verified against them.

    Most hacking cases that we deal with don’t originate from a simple password breach on an EVE Online account – they occur when a player’s email account is hacked, and a password reset request is sent to the email address, which then gives access to your characters and assets.

    You can help keep your accounts secure by using 2FA on both your email and your EVE Online account and reduce the risk of becoming a victim of account hacking.

    For extra security, you can also make sure you use a mobile authentication token to keep code generation on your mobile device and away from your email accounts.

    You can find out more about how to set up Two Factor Authentication here!

    Final Words

    Your feedback matters, as does your reporting of those who're involved in illicit activities in EVE Online.

    We're always happy to see that for the best part, the EVE Community remains vigilant against those who are botting, RMTing and account hacking.

    Keep the reports coming, and we'll keep rooting these guys out as quickly and efficiently as we can.

    We remain 100% committed to keeping up the fight against botting, RMT and account hacking in New Eden, and we'll continue to hit these guys as hard as we can while looking at ways to deter them further as best as we can.

    It can't be stressed enough that while you don't receive a lot of feedback on individual botting reports right now, every report matters.

    As always, we'd love to hear your feedback, so feel free to hit the comments thread for this blog if you'd like to chat more about this blog.

  • First CSM 14 Summit Meeting Minutes
    published on September 27th, 2019 at 11:45 AM

    Greetings, citizens of New Eden,

    The first summit for the democratically elected 14th Council of Stellar Management took place at the beginning of this month at CCP Headquarters in Reykjavik. Today I am pleased to share the meeting minutes from the summit that summarizes most of the things that have been discussed between CSM and CCP.

    CSM 14 SUMMIT MEETING MINUTES

    From Monday, September 2 to Thursday, September 5 we hosted 30 sessions with different CCPers across the organization covering various topics, such as the vision and future for EVE Online, ship balance and Chaos Era changes, marketing, account security, etc. We even playtested a new in-development feature and had an hour and a half long AMA session with CCP Hellmar and CCP Burger. After the fireside chat both gentlemen had during Fanfest HOME this one felt like a trifle!

    CSM14_MinutesAsset3

    For those new to the CSM process, the CSM is elected for one year with two summits taking place during a single term. Members of the CSM are flown to Iceland for a week of meetings with EVE Online teams and management. The purpose of these summits is to give ourselves a chance to sit down and do a deep dive on developing features, ideas, and issues with representatives of the glorious EVE community.

    CSM14_MinutesAsset1

    This time around we welcomed 9 out of 10 CSM members. Even if Killah Bee was not able to make it in person, we did not forget about him. He joined several sessions via voice and received a rundown of topics discussed post-summit from the other council members.

    CSM14_MinutesAsset2

    The content of each summit is a mix of CSM-requested topics and topics CCP schedules to get feedback on designs and projects. Releasing meeting minutes is our way of providing as much transparency to the process as possible, and to give everyone more insight into the realities of developing the greatest gaming universe ever created in co-operation with our amazing community.

    We put a lot of effort into making the minutes as detailed and precise as humanly possible, but ultimately they will never capture everything that was discussed. Many individuals from CCP and CSM members spoke on topics without their contribution being completely captured in the minutes.

    I would like to note that 4 out of 30 sessions have been redacted from the minutes as they contained confidential information. Two of them: session about the new in-development feature and Players in EVE Online with CCP Ghost will be released at a later date.

    It has been absolutely fantastic to engage in a candid conversation with the council members, listen to their feedback and concerns about EVE Online. We are lucky to have such a dedicated group of people that comes for a week-long trip to Iceland to share theirs, and their constituents, perspectives based on different game experiences they have in New Eden.

    Now, dive into the minutes yourself and visit the dedicated forum thread if you would like to discuss the contents with other Pilots.

  • Community Fittings now available in the EVE Online client
    published on September 26th, 2019 at 11:45 AM

    If you’d like to comment on this blog, feel free to head on over to this thread on the official forums.

    Hello helpful capsuleers!

    A while back we introduced the concept of Community Fittings where we invited players to submit ship fits that would be helpful to new players who were still finding their feet in New Eden.

    We’ve been collecting your submissions on the forum and we’re pleased to announce that as of our August release, those community fittings are now available within the EVE Online client!

    How to access the Community Fittings

    fitting

    1. Click the Fitting button on the NEOCOM
    2. Click on the Browser button in the fitting window
    3. Click on the Community Fittings filter
    4. Browse through the current community fittings!

    Right now there is a small selection of fittings for T1 exploration frigates which have been chosen by our hard-working ISD volunteers from the submissions in the community fittings forum. Now that this feature has found its way into the client we expect this list to grow quickly.

    That’s cool! How can I help?

    We’re already on the lookout for more submissions, starting with basic PvP fits for tech 1 frigates and PvE fits for T1 destroyers that will be able to tackle the Sisters of EVE epic arc. Head on over to the Community Fittings section of the EVE forums where the ISD volunteers have created new threads for ships we’re seeking fittings for.

    The ship, its purpose and restrictions are mentioned in the first post of the thread and the thread title. Just reply to the thread with a good ship fit and add any further explanation about the advantages of your fit in your post.

    Accepted fits will be regularly added to the client in batches and threads calling for new fits will be appearing as time goes on.

    What’s it in for me?

    Well for one thing if your fitting is selected then you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that somewhere in New Eden a new player could be flying around in your carefully crafted ship fit. Also your name will be featured along with the fit in-game so everyone will know what an awesome person you are!

    FAQ

    When can I start?

    Threads for new fits are already available. Get posting!

    What do I do if I spot a bad fit?

    Please do not discuss the quality of other submissions in the fitting thread. Our ISD volunteers will disregard any bad fittings they see.

    What can I do if someone else copied my fitting?

    If we see similar fittings we consider the first one posted to be the original one.

    Can I submit troll fits?

    Troll fits will be removed, probably before anyone else sees them. There are more productive uses of your time, friend! Have you considered learning to crochet?

    What if a bad fitting has made it into the game client?

    While all fittings will be carefully analysed, mistakes can sometimes happen. In the unlikely case that a laser Raven fit makes it into the client we can easily correct it. We will keep an eye on the feedback!


  • Introducing Your EVE Aether Wars: Phase Two Winners!
    published on September 18th, 2019 at 11:45 AM

    If you'd like to comment on this blog, feel free to head on over to this thread on the official forums.

    EVE Aether Wars: Phase Two was a huge success for everyone here at Hadean. The playtest brought thousands of players together for an enormous clash in space, pushing our powerful Aether Engine in unique and unexpected ways, teaching us plenty about how we can continue developing and refining our technology.

    But it wasn’t just a resounding victory for Team Hadean, as two players from the EVE Aether Wars: Phase Two playtest can call themselves winners too.

    We had two prizes up for grabs – an all-expenses paid trip to EVE Vegas for a randomly-selected player and a CORSAIR gaming PC for the player who collected the most resources (ZPC) – and we can now reveal who the winners are!

    6

    EVE VEGAS WINNER – ANDREA D’ACUNZO

    Our first winner is Andrea D’Acunzo, known in-game as pilot aquaticunbiased.

    He’s an EVE Online veteran of 10 years who lives in London and works as a game designer, which is what sparked his interest in EVE Aether Wars: Phase Two. He has decided to attend EVE Fanfest in Iceland for his prize, rather than EVE Vegas.

    Andrea played Phase Two for almost an entire hour and tried out a wide range of tactics during his time in the playtest.

    “At the beginning I tried using a Rattlesnake, but I found it a bit cumbersome and quickly discovered that it was an easy target,” explained Andrea. “After that, I mainly went around in a Gila, zooming between dust cloud to dust cloud, trying to avoid staying in the same place too long to avoid incoming fire and spamming the collect button as fast as I could. It didn't work very well, but at the end I was lucky and managed to destroy someone who must have amassed quite a bit of ZPC, a couple of minutes before the end!”

    As a game designer, Andrea is excited to see what comes next and has already volunteered himself for further tests.

    “I am very excited about what a new technology such as Aether Engine could bring to EVE Online and multiplayer games in general,” said Andrea. “Multiplayer games and technology are making some huge strides lately, especially in London. I would love to work with this stuff, so I am eager for any further tests… I want to see what the future of MMOs looks like!”

    CORSAIR GAMING PC WINNER – ALEKSI KULJU

    Our second winner was Aleksi from Finland, who was the best pilot on the day. Going by the in-game name of pilot livelygusty, Aleksi collected a staggering 193,320 ZPC! He also secured 12 kills against five deaths, playing for just over 50 minutes in total.

    As the overall winner, we were keen to learn more about his resource-collecting strategy. How did Aleksi fight his way to the top of the leaderboards?

    “When I joined the game, I really had no idea what I was doing at first, and had no strategy whatsoever,” he told us. “I just tried to stay alive for the first 20 to 30 minutes and failed miserably at it.

    “Then after a while, I noticed something different; there was another ship in front of me but it was glowing yellow. I tried to kill it to find out if killing him would give me a health bonus, speed bonus, something like that. He kept using his warp drive to get away but eventually I managed to kill him and I noticed I got just over 1,000 ZPC for killing him. That’s when I realised the yellow ships have lots of ZPC.”

    It was his ruthless pursuit of those yellow ships that saw Aleksi crowned as the EVE Aether Wars: Phase Two champion.

    “I decided to focus on the ships that were glowing yellow and after a few kills I managed to get around 100,000 ZPC from one of them. All the earlier kills then added up to around 193,000 ZPC and I spent the last 10 minutes just trying to stay alive while multiple other ships were chasing me.”

    I guess I came up with a strategy on the spot and it really worked out in my favour. I never even thought I had a chance at finishing on top of the leaderboard though.”

    Whatever is next on the horizon for EVE Aether Wars, Aleksi is keen to take part. “I really want to take part in future playtests because I like the idea of stress testing new technology that can change the future of gaming. I really want to see what the future of Aether Engine holds… I’ve also never felt an adrenaline rush this big before while playing a game!”

    So what’s next?

    If you have an Aether Wars-shaped hole in your life that needs to be filled and a thirst for more spaceships that need to be blasted, the legendary EVE Online is free to play. Otherwise, we suggest keeping an eye on the news here and over on the Hadean website, as we may have some exciting news for you very soon...

    More About EVE Vegas 2019!

    EVE Vegas has been a staple North American event on our calendar for a decade or so now, and is a celebration of all things New Eden.

    This year is a little special, as it'll be the last time we'll be hosting the event in Las Vegas before taking our largest North American event on the road for the future, with our first stop being San Diego in 2020.

    This year's event will be hosted in the Flamingo Hotel and Casino right on the Las Vegas strip, with the Saturday night party hosted at OMNIA over at Caesar's Palace, right across the street.

    The event takes place from October 25-27 and is sure to be one hell of a party!

    If you’re intending on coming along this year, you should be sure to book your tickets as soon as possible, as they're selling fast.

    At the current pace, the event will once again sell out before it kicks off, so be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!

    You can pick up your EVE Vegas tickets and find out more here!
