The Battle for Caldari Prime trailer is now live

Comments Off on The Battle for Caldari Prime trailer is now live

The Battle for Caldari Prime raged for the entirety of last week, reaching an apex on Friday with Gallente forces engaging the Leviathan-class titan, the Shiigeru, and its impromptu support fleet above the planet. While the Caldari emerged on top after the fights on the ground in DUST 514, the Shiigeru was destroyed along with the entire Caldari fleet. The wreckage of the titan then crashed into the planet, leaving behind a broken landscape on Caldari Prime, both in DUST 514 and EVE Online. 

Our latest trailer showcases this moment when the two worlds collided in a way never done before. Head on over to the CCP Games youtube channel and watch this moment in New Eden history.

Population cap in Luminaire, 22nd of March

Comments Off on Population cap in Luminaire, 22nd of March

With Luminaire being a hotbed of activity in New Eden today, we will be ensuring server stability by having a population cap of 1000 players today, March 22nd. This cap has already been enacted, but we will be dynamically altering it as the server load requires and raising it if everything runs smoothly.

CCP Masterplan has made an additional adjustment for the Luminaire system by disabling the faction navy in the system, so that pilots with low Gallente standing will be able to enter the system. CONCORD and faction police will continue to do their jobs for now. Read his forum post here, and refer to CCP Explorer's post here for even more detailed information.

We apologize for the inconvenience this causes but remember you will be able to watch the event live on the CCP Games Twitch.tv channel, here.

The Angel Project

Comments Off on The Angel Project

 

by ISD Tedra Kerrigan

Amarr, Throne Worlds - Last year, a remarkable thing happened in New Eden. A capsuleer began going around giving random strangers things they needed.

It wasn't a scam.

It wasn't a trick.

It was the Angel Project, brainchild of Sindel Pellion, a member of TEST Alliance Please Ignore.

After reading dozens of threads on scamming and the respect it garnered, Ms. Pellion decided that while "scamming may be a part of life in New Eden, it isn't part of MY life."

So she started the Angel Project. The premise is fairly simple, in that any capsuleer with ISK, modules or ships to spare sends them to The Angel Project who, together with Ms. Pellion, redistributes the items and ISK to needy capsuleers.

The project was initially met with disbelief, especially by younger capsuleers who couldn't believe that random strangers were really giving away expensive ships, modules and ISK for no reason. To be fair to those capsuleers, history has shown that in New Eden; if it looks free, it's probably a scam.

Despite what cynical capsuleers may feel, Ms. Pellion appears to be running a legitimate charity operation dedicated to getting ISK and items to the capsuleers who need it most.

Future plans of the Angel Project include a sponsored roam for Brave Newbies, an upcoming charity auction and a currently-ongoing charity drive to raise extra funds for the Project.
