Attention trial users: Helpful information and tips contained within!

Comments Off on Attention trial users: Helpful information and tips contained within!

When flying your first AU's in New Eden, it is good to know where valuable information is readily available to you. If you ever feel lost or confused, fret not! Below are some very good sources of information, and communities of other players:

First off, you will have three open chat channels when you first create your character. Whenever one of the channels is highlighted, it means you have unread messages there.

  • The local tab is your local channel. It contains all other players that are in your current system, so don't be afraid to talk there when taking your first steps and requesting assistance as required.
  • The corp tab is your Rookie Corporation Chat. Rest assured that this channel is filled with new players just like yourself, so chat away!
  • The last tab is the Rookie Help channel. That is absolutely the place to seek assistance and ask questions!

If you ever lose one of these channels, don't worry. You can click the little chat bubble and find them there, most notably the help channels under the Help category. Otherwise they will be at the top of your menu, on the left side of your screen.

The EVE Online Community Team have been running New Player Training Sessions (NPTS) specifically targeted at players that would like to know as much about specific features as possible. If you wish to know more, they are available on the EVElopedia. The EVElopedia is also an excellent source of information for other matters. If you want, you can also join the New Player Training Sessions chat channel in-game, by clicking the chat bubble and typing in the name of the channel.

Check out the official EVE Online New Pilot FAQ for a boiled down explanation of many basic points, what to expect, and how to attain it.

Lastly, there is no better source of experience and help than the existing players. Remember that this is a single-shard server, which means everyone plays on the same server. Notable places to check are the EVE subreddit, the New Citizens Q&A forum on the EVE Online forums, and the EVE University Wiki. If you have a Twitter account, you can see what clever things the other players are saying by watching #eveonline and #tweetfleet.

EVE Online is a terrific game full of wonderful people. Go join them; but most importantly of all, have fun doing so.

Universe Data Migration Test on Singularity

Comments Off on Universe Data Migration Test on Singularity

From the 30th of January to the 13th of February, a build containing the migration of EVE's universe data will be available for public testing on Singularity. It would be great if you could help us to make sure that we did not miss any bugs in our internal tests. This patch should include nearly no player-facing changes, but it is a very big change to some of our backend systems and contains, for example, a complete new path finder.

If you would like to participate and help us test this change, head on over to this thread for all the information you may need.

New Eden Open II signups closed – auction now live!

Comments Off on New Eden Open II signups closed – auction now live!

The sign-ups for the New Eden Open II have now been closed. This means the silent auction for spots in the tournament is now live!

As stated in the dev blogs announcing and detailing the tournament, the silent auction closes at 23:59:59 UTC on the 23rd of January and bids submitted after that will not be accepted.

Captains of teams that are signed up can send their bid to the character 'CCP Alliance Tournament' to try and secure a spot in the tournament. Once you have submitted your bid via EVEmail to CCP Alliance Tournament, you put up a contract assigned to the character with the amount of PLEX you bid. Only then will your entry into the silent auction be accepted. The 5 PLEX used to sign up will then be added to your bid, to make the final amount of PLEX you bid towards a spot.

If your bid secures you a spot in the tournament at the end of the silent auction, the contract will be accepted and you will be notified via EVEmail. After the silent auction ends, there will be a random draw for the last 3 spots in the tournament where those teams that didn't secure a spot have a chance to get in.

Teams that still have pending invites and/or have more than 12 members in their team after the silent auction ends, will be contacted to finalize the roster. Any characters that did not have an invite before downtime on the 20th of January are not eligible to participate. 

If you have any questions, come over to the EVE Alliance Tournament Discussion forum! The tournament team hangs around there to answer as many questions as possible.
