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.

Tensions continue to run high as Circle-Of-Two recently announced their departure from the coalition of alliances that makes up the Imperium, taking with them more than three thousand pilots from The Imperium’s already outnumbered military forces.

The Hunt!

The Hunt is on! Friday, March 18, 2016

Intel from the Valkyrie has revealed that numerous pilots have been kidnapped and imprisoned by a select group of Guristas. The same cell that intercepted the Guristas comms have also taken down the tech that hides their facilities harboring the captured pilots. Held for research and then transported to an unknown faction calling themselves "Schism", these pilots are doomed unless you come to their aid.

Guristas Detention Sites dot all regions of space and appear to be initial holding tanks for kidnapped pilots.

Guristas Transportation Sites are more guarded, found in low sec space, and often store more valuable caches of items.

  • Search for the facilities
  • Destroy any Guristas forces that stand in your way
  • Loot the spoils

Scope News Friday, March 18, 2016

OPERATION: FROSTLINE Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Join the cause. Raid and pillage the pirate vaults. A New Coalition Forms As plans for colonization coalesce, several major corporations have allied to form Upwell Consortium, laser-focused on Citadel construction. To that end, they have freed Outer Ring Excavations (ORE) from its Serpentis overlords and brought them into the Consortium's fold. Adding insult to injury, they have also released Serpentis' vault security codes to the capsuleer community.

Do your part in paving the way for tomorrow.
*Seek out the breached security vaults
*Lay siege to their remaining defenses
*Pillage the pirate faction's fatted vaults

Reports of implants, blueprints, SKINs, and PLEX have filtered back from returning capsuleers. Serpentis engineers are working around the clock to bring security back online, so time is of the essence. Get raiding!

Grid Size Increase Tuesday, December 8, 2015

The grids of EVE Online are the equivalent of what most MMOs would refer to as chunks or zones. They are massive divisions of space designed to balance load, manage performance, and basically prevent both the players and the server from having to deal with more data than they need to.

But you are legion in number and you will soon be constructing mammoth citadels among the heavens in your colonization of the EVE universe. As a result, we will be expanding the grids to 32 times their current size.

What this means for you:
- You will be able to see ships, objects and structures even further away.
- You will be able to see ships warping in and out from further away.
- Bookmarks may shift a bit, as their location may have slightly moved during the change.

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.

  • Blood Raider Gauntlets - Seek out and prove your worth in Blood Raider combat sites, where Blood Raider SKINs are among the possible rewards.

Confront The Mercenaries Of Legend Tuesday, June 3, 2014

It is not known how many pages of history have been written by the forces of Mordu's Legion, but the ones that do bear their name speak volumes. From its suppression of the uprising on Kamokor to the capture of and sanctuary for Templar One (the controversial first planetary clone), the Legion has become known to many as a force for freedom. To the government agencies and powerful factions that have hired them to handle all kind of matters, Mordu's Legion is one of the most efficient and well-connected mercenary companies money can buy.

Mordu's Legion has since made itself more visible, patrolling low-sec in ships designed from the ground up for the solo and small-fleet encounters common to pirate-riddled regions of space. The Legion's high-range warp disruption prevents enemy escape, and its exceptional speed, versatility, and missile capabilities allow its mercenaries to close in and take down prey with brutal efficiency.

Locate their operations in low security space, challenge their patrols, and take their technology by force. Use the might of Mordu's Legion to further your own cause in New Eden.
