Comments Off on Patch Notes For Kronos Are Now Available!

Supercarrier Changes Coming In Kronos

Comments Off on Supercarrier Changes Coming In Kronos

As detailed in this Dev Blog, we're making some adjustments to supercarriers in the Kronos release, set for deployment on June 3rd.

As part of these changes, we will be doubling the volume of Fighter Bomber class drones. During the deployment downtime, if your drone bay becomes overfull as a result of this change, all drones in your drone bay will be moved to your ship’s cargo bay. This can prevent your ship from warping or jumping if your cargo bay is overloaded, until they have been jettisoned or otherwise removed.

As such, we would suggest that you move any extra Fighter Bomber Drones out of your drone bay before the release is deployed, so that you're not left in space with no drones to deploy!

If you do find yourself in a situation whereby your ship is stuck with its cargo bay overloaded, you can jettison the drones and scoop them up to the ship’s corp hangar or fleet hangar, if there is space available.

If you do happen to run into problems and need assistance after Kronos has been deployed, please don’t hesitate to contact Customer Support by filing a ticket under the ‘Stuck Characters’ category and our friendly GM Team will do their best to help you out.

Additional Geckos Now Available!

Comments Off on Additional Geckos Now Available!

The clock has stopped and the results of the EVE is 11 challenge are now in!

The community has reached four of the eight goals that were set for the award of an additional eight Geckos, these are:

  • Volume of ore mined - First goal
  • Volume of ore mined - Second goal
  • Science & Industry jobs submitted - First goal
  • Science & Industry jobs submitted - Second goal

Clearly this indicates that our miners and industrialists are far better at what they do than our combat pilots, and next time around our combat focused capsuleers need to step up their game!*

This means that in addition to the three Geckos gifted to the community on May 6th, EVE's 11th Anniversary, a further four are now available in the redeeming system of every subscribed EVE Online account thanks to the relentless rock chewing of our miners and the tenacity of those who oversee manufacturing and reserach in New Eden. 

Be sure to claim them before the redemption token expires on June 3rd with the Kronos release!

Happy 11th Anniversary to everyone!

 

*Just kidding, don't pod me.
