Industrious capsuleers,

Ever since the Uprising expansion went live on 8 November, there’s been a lot happening and a lot to do in New Eden. Factional Warfare activity has significantly increased, the arrival of new capsuleer communities in New Eden has been celebrated, new settings for EVE’s trusty overview have entered testing, Black Friday offers have gone live, and you can participate and benefit from absolutely all of that and more this weekend!

FACTIONAL WAR ROOM
Following the release of Uprising, Factional Warfare (FW) has heated up with over 5,300 new pilots enrolling in faction militia groups to participate! As a result of increased FW activity, the map of New Eden has changed – and continues to change – based on player activity. Whether Alpha or Omega, recruitment drives have been active across the cluster, with players of all experience levels being employed across a variety of activities.

With the updated ship restrictions on the various c... Read more

Why Photon? Photon is a massive undertaking to overhaul the EVE User Interface. The current UI is functional, so many players have asked why we chose to embark on a large project like this.

During its twenty year development, EVE has seen many features, all with specific user interface needs. Some of these features have pushed the UI into new territory, exploring new ways to improve the interface, but not always with an established design language in mind. This has made parts of the UI less than cohesive, even confusing, and difficult to master. In addition, maintaining many UI styles is ineffective, leading to increased development time.

Last year saw the formation of a dedicated User Experience team, whose primary responsibility would be the in-space experience of EVE Online. As EVE’s user interface allows access to nearly every feature while in space, there was a lot to consider. Efficiency and sustainability need to be considered, not only from a development ...

Greetings music loving capsuleers,

We are beyond excited to announce the long-awaited arrival of Permaband, CCP in-house rockers, and pioneers of the “Thukk Rokk” musical subculture, to Spotify and beyond. Four of their popular songs, HTFU, Killing Is Just A Means, Warp To The Dance Floor, and Wrecking Machine are now available to everyone for free, on all major streaming platforms.



Permaband was the CCP in-house band, and their soaring sound should be known to anyone who has attended EVE Fanfest. The band’s music videos have been fan favorites for years, and now music loving capsuleers will finally be able to add them to their daily music rotation.

Greetings, Capsuleers!

As you might remember, in summer we released a Team Security update[www.eveonline.com] where we talked about RMTers, botters, fraud, and other related topics, followed by a Q&A session in the official EVE discord. We are tremendously grateful for all your attention, questions, reports, and your engagement with us. The questions were tough sometimes, but hopefully we managed to provide some answers.

Summer and autumn have been rather busy for Team Security, as there are always more bots, RMTers, and account hackings to tackle. Your help in identifying these is, as always, tremendously important.

In this entry we’d like to talk about some rules and policies, to clarify and to discu... Read more

Social capsuleers,

EVE’s ‘Recruit a Friend’ program has long been a great way to invite your friends to play EVE together, but often you make new friends in space - so why miss out on recruitment rewards?

Following popular demand from corporations and alliances, it has now been made possible to recruit an existing account and still be eligible for rewards defined by the Recruitment Program[www.eveonline.com] rules. And you can be sure the rewards are well worth the effort of getting your friends involved in EVE!

How does it work?There are rewards for the recruiter, and the recruit. Recruits will receive 1,000,000 SP immediately after being recruited, saving them around three weeks of skill training. If the recruit subscrib... Read more

Intrepid capsuleers!

The overview window is the most important tool at your disposal in EVE Online. It’s used for orientation, traveling, fighting, resource gathering... everything you do in space. Customizing the overview to suit a capsuleer’s needs is important but can be daunting for new players. We are therefore changing the default overview for new players to make it more useful and to make the transition to using custom overview packs easier. This will be achieved by making new capsuleers familiar with the more advanced use of the overview features employed by corporations and alliances they might end up joining.

The new default overview is available now on the Singularity test server. We invite you to share your feedback on the EVE Forums[forums.eveonline.com].... Read more
