Hello everyone,

We have now gone through a week of recovery following Fanfest 2023 where we celebrated the 20 year anniversary of EVE Online together in Iceland. There were a number of celebrations and revelations over Fanfest that will be far too many to fully go into in our little Community Beat but these are some of the highlights from the EVE Online community that took place over Fanfest week.

CSM 18

We brought back the tradition of announcing the next CSM at Fanfest which was done at the start of the event during the welcome ceremony. There were a few things to celebrate as the torch gets passed, firstly the voter turnout for this years was above all expectations, including our own. There were 47,115 votes that went to the voting booth in this years election and it is always great to see the passion that still remains, and now grows for our great institution that is the CSM.

Council of Stellar Management 18

First of all, CSM 18 campaigning is in full swing! Tonight (in fact, right now) and over the next 2 days, CCP will be interviewing CSM 18 candidates on our ...

Hello spacefriends and welcome to the latest Community Beat! Lets take a look at some of the cool things that are going on across the community:

Nottingham Player Meet

Since several CCPers were in staying on in Nottingham between AT weekends we decided to put together a player meetup while we were in town. Hosted at the Bunkers Hill pub in Hockley we had expected maybe 20 or 30 people to turn up but in the end over 60 people came out to hang out for the evening, enjoy a few ales and talk about our favourite hobby - internet spaceships!

CCP Zelus, CCP Bee, CCP Swift, CCP Kestrel, CCP Overload and CCP Convict were all there along with members of the EVE_NT AT crew. We also had current, former and prospective CSM members and one of our hard-working ISD volunteers joining us too.

Some lucky players took home stunning Lloyd George watercolor prints featuring ships such as the Widow, Drekevac and Hel, as well as Rifter USB hubs. We had a great time meeting everyo...

Hello spacefriends and welcome to the latest Community Beat! New Eden never slows down and neither do you! Once again we’re spoiled for exciting developments from the community to talk about but here are some of the highlights that caught our attention over the last two weeks:

Guristas and Angel Cartel Data Fragments

Eagle-eyed EVE players have recently noticed that certain Guristas and Angel Cartel NPCs are dropping data fragments that, when stitched together, seem to show schematics of unfamiliar ships.

One such capsuleer is HongsamCandy who has been collecting fragments of a Guristas ship and by reconstructing them has hit upon what appears to be some kind of destroyer-class vessel, apparently based on the Corax hull:

Welcome back Capsuleers to the latest Community Beat!

You have been exceptionally busy since the Viridian expansion! It has been a blast watching you check out the updated Marauders, SKIN your structures, dominate the Homefront Operation sites, set goals for corporations, and master the new Excel add-in. We want to celebrate your achievements and check out all the amazing stories you’ve generated, while looking forward to some events that you can still participate in.

Tranquility Trading Explosion!

The Tranquility Trading Tower has stood towering over the Jita gate in Perimeter since October 15, 2018. After Viridian, new policy dictated that XL structures could no longer be anchored in high-sec. Immediately following this announcement The Initiative declared their opposition to the structure and declared war. Shortly thereafter, the TTC - owners of the Tranquilty Trading Tower and other structures throughout high-sec – agreed to dissolve their long-standing ag...

Greetings spacefriends!

Welcome to another edition of the Community Beat, where we shine the spotlight on recently made community Art and Videos that have been on our radar. Starting off, we'd like to showcase a watercolor painting from Lloyd George, aka El Geo, of a Machariel.


Lloyd does such a fantastic job of capturing the essence of the ship he's painting, with each new project blowing us away. If you want to see more of his work, or possibly pick up a piece for your wall, then head over to his website: ...

This edition of the Community Beat will be different as we take a moment to remember a dedicated friend our community has recently lost.

Vale ISD Dorrim Barstorlode and Bernie Nator

It is with a heavy heart that we write to inform you of the untimely passing of one of our esteemed community members and ISD volunteers, known in-game as Bernie Nator and ISD Dorrim Barstorlode.

Bernie was a stalwart in the EVE tournament scene and an active player within wormhole space. Bernie was a friend, mentor, and a beacon of positivity to everyone who had the good fortune of interacting with him. He was renowned for his friendly demeanor and camaraderie, making the universe of New Eden a welcoming place for both new and seasoned players.

His alter ego - ISD Dorrim Barstorlode - was a tireless contributor to our ISD volunteer program which he was a part of for over a decade. As a moderator on the EVE forums, he played a vital role in ensuring our community remained a resp...

Welcome to the latest installment of the Community Beat! It's a feast for your eyes this time with a stack of terrific player made videos that have appeared on our radar since the last edition. Read on!

Alliance Tournament XVIII

The first weekend of the Alliance Tournament was an explosive success with match after match showcasing some amazing EVE PvP. Unlike the Trials which took place on the Thunderdome tournament server, the AT finals happen on Tranquility and all ships and modules are paid for by players. The first weekend saw 386 ships worth nearly 260 billion ISK destroyed. 💥

There were some surprises with strong teams like Hidden Leaf Village, Bright Side of Death and Pandemic Legion being sent home as well as Brave Collective’s startling wins over Fancypants Alliance and Big Yikes to keep them in the winners bracket.

Click the image below to watch the nailbiting battle between Arrival and Hidden Leaf Village:

Faruzen en Divalone : First Myrmidon Navy Issue Killed

On 15th October the Myrmidon Navy Issue ship named 'Spirit of Serthoulde' belonging to Faruzen en Divalone was destroyed. This represents the first loss of a Myrmidon Navy Issue since they were introduced late last month.

At the time of its demise the ship had 15 killmarks in t...
