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 back, capsuleers. It is time for the Community Beat. 

Hopefully you had a wonderful time over the past week. Its almost the weekend and with it comes new and exciting things happening in the community. In the last Community Beat we shared some amazing watercolor paintings and found out what Youtube Shorts are all about.

Lastly we said our goodbyes to our friends, NeedsToBeReal and HateLesS. To commemorate their contributions we have added NeedsToBeReal's signature Imperial Navy Slicer and a handful of HateLesS's favorite ships into the in-game Community Fittings. These fits can be found by searching for their names in the fitting to...

We have several things we'd like to highlight this time around. Let's get to it!


Starting off with some art that caught our eyes. Allie Po posted a watercolor painting of an Astero over on Twitter. It looks fantastic! Keep it up.


Then from the same artist, a portrait of Zorya Triglav.

Hello spacefriends, it’s time for another Community Beat! This is where we highlight some of the cool things you've been up to & where we raise awareness of upcoming player events.

To begin, we would like to give a quick shoutout to the Frigate Free 4 All happening Saturday March 11th. This is the 9th Annual Frigate Free 4 All in Ouelletta and we hope to see you on grid!

Up next, we present to you the CUTEST PvP video we've seen in a while. It's Lasker Emanuel, who made a name for himself many years ago with his solo Dreadnought PvP videos, but here he's teaching his son how to PvP! You can hear them talk back and forth during this video...

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...

Hello spacefriends and welcome to another installment of the Community Beat!

Caldari Union Day

Union Day events are in full swing in-game so it seems like a good time to show off some of the Caldari-flavored creativity that has come out of the community in recent weeks.

First of all there’s this excellent Caldari State trailer by Kaneda Emperis which was assembled from scratch in Blender and After Effects::

Welcome back to the Beat!

We often say that EVE players rock our world. Since our last Beat, that has actually been quite literal! CCP Studios, based in Reykajvik, has played home to some serious geological activity in the last two weeks. After a series of earthquakes, the Geldingadalir volcano became active once again. If you’d like to bring some Icelandic ambiance into your homes, check out the live coverage of the activity below:

But we’re not going to be stopped by some pesky lava! This week we take a look back at some developer chats, marvel at AI inspired art, and look forward to some player events in and out of game. Let’s get to it!
