March Release & Events
Mar 10th

Broker Relations Tuesday, March 10, 2020

The Broker Relations update will be launching 10 March, and included in the release will be changes to the mechanics around creating and updating orders on the in-game market.

Last summer, permanent changes to both the sales taxes and broker fees for the market were implemented. Having monitored player behavior before and after these summer changes to taxes & fees, further alterations to the market will be made.

The intent behind these upcoming changes is to support a healthy and live open market, allowing competition to remain fair between players. The prohibited use of automation techniques used by malicious players on the in-game market is a frequent subject of discussion, so there is absolute commitment to fighting bots in New Eden. Needless to say, the market and the behaviors of players when these changes go live will be closely monitored.

The Loyalty to Lowsec update coming on 24 March will provide a thrilling climax to the Fight or Flight Quadrant, featuring a number of changes to Faction Warfare, such as increased Loyalty Point payouts for PvP kills, and a reduction in payouts for Faction Warfare missions.

There will also be an increase in the activation area that surrounds acceleration gates leading to combat complexes and brand new Battleship-specific capture sites added. A perfect opportunity for Capsuleers to make use of the brand new and exciting Frigate Escape Bay feature going live on 24 March.

Furthermore, there will be an increase to the loot dropped from PvP in Lowsec and an increase to warp speed in Lowsec between 24 March and 6 April. Finally, an additional task will be added to the Skilling is Just a Means event that runs until 14 April. Capsuleers will be offered an extra 10,000 Skill Points daily for killing one of the NPCs defending the Faction Warfare capture sites, so that makes 20,000 Skill Points available every day!
