EVE Fanfest Thursday, April 6, 2017

Fanfest is back!

Bigger, better and crazier than ever, the party on top of the world this year will not only be a celebration of the EVE Universe, but also a celebration of the 20th anniversary of CCP Games, which was founded in 1997.

EVE Fanfest brings our amazing community together in incredible ways for a three-day celebration of everything New Eden in Reykjavik, Iceland, the most northern capital city on earth.

Our players can expect amazing presentations from both players and developers alike, tournaments, direct access to developers in roundtables and can also check out some CCP projects that could spawn the next EVE: Valkyrie or EVE: Gunjack.

To cap off the festivities, we welcome all attendees to the legendary Party on Top of the World and the infamous Pub Crawl through downtown Reykjavik.

Get your tickets here!

Pacifier Thursday, April 6, 2017

In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of CCP Games, every purchase of a Fanfest 2017 ticket will be rewarded with a Pacifier class CONCORD frigate.

While this vessel has its CONCORD subsystems stripped out, pilots will find that it is still a formidable little vessel, able to hold its own on the field of battle.

The Pacifier will be distributed after Fanfest 2017, in a summer release.

Enforcer Thursday, April 6, 2017

In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of CCP Games, every purchase of a Fanfest 2017 ticket before January 1st, 2017 will be rewarded with an Enforcer class CONCORD cruiser.

The Enforcer is an amalgamation of several popular cruisers from across the cluster, and while this version no longer has its CONCORD designed weapons subsystems fitted, this is still a vessel with some serious teeth.

The Enforcer will be distributed after Fanfest 2017, in a summer release.

Marshal Thursday, April 6, 2017

In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of CCP Games, every purchase of a ticket to both Fanfest 2017 and EVE Vegas 2017 will be rewarded with Marshal class CONCORD Battleship.

Under CONCORD command, the Marshal is the last word in keeping interstellar peace. Flown by the most seasoned and experienced CONCORD pilots, it has remained the mainstay vessel of CONCORD for almost a century and will prove a formidable opponent, even with its CONCORD mandated weapons hardware stripped out.

The Marshal will be distributed after EVE Vegas 2017, in a winter release.

The Crimson Harvest returns this year, as the Blood Raider Covenant look to embark on their annual harvest of capsuleer blood.

Famed for their kidnapping, bloodletting and ruthless raids into populated space, the story of the Blood Raiders is a tale that sends shivers down the spine of children across the Amarr Empire and beyond.

Purity of the Throne Tuesday, September 13, 2016

As the coronation of Empress Catiz I draws closer, there are those who consider her ascension to the Golden Throne of Holy Amarr both unjust and improper, based on archaic views that call the purity of her Udorian heritage into question.

With the might of the Imperial Armed Forces at her heel, and both the Ministry of Internal Order and Theology Council ratifying the views of the Purity of the Throne movement as heretical, bounties have been placed on the heads of their members.

The Empire is encouraging capsuleers across the cluster to strip the heretics of their colors, and wear them in support of the ascension of Catiz I to her rightful place as the leader of the Amarr Empire.

Coalition Influence Map Monday, March 28, 2016

This map shows the status of Coalition influence across the whole cluster of New Eden before the attack launched by the Moneybadger Coalition against Imperium territory, which is diplayed in yellow at the northern end of the map.

The conflict centered around the constellation of 1P-VL2 in Tribute, with the two largest engagements occurring in the systems of M-OEE8 and J-GAMP.

The total number of pilots involved in this contact topped out at an astonishing 5,806, making it the second largest battle in the history of EVE Online, second only to the epic clash in B-R5RB.

Enormous Subcapital Fleets Monday, March 28, 2016

The Boogeyman

It's that time of year, when adults of every race and culture tuck in their children, snuggle up, and proceed to tell them a terrifying tale that will scar them for life. For the Amarr, it is the story of the murderous Bloody Omir. The Boogeyman from the Bleak Lands is sure to get a good shudder from even the bravest of children, often at that moment when the adult they love and trust tells them "But it's just a legend. He's not real. Or... is he?"

Silly people, you should know...
You shall reap just what you sow.

Bloody Omir is coming back,
With monsters from the endless black.

The Crimson Harvest
Pilots of all factions are treated to the horrifying reality that Omir Sarikusa is real. It's harvest time for that special little sociopath and he's looking to recruit capsuleers to help reap the bounty of pilots that dare to oppose him.
