Hello everyone! We're finally ready to open up a test server with some of the balance changes for the Winter expansion.

TL:DR
  • Duality will be open from tonight through the weekend
  • It will be updated with the rebalanced frigates and destroyers for Winter
  • Missile and Cruiser changes are not on this build
  • We want to focus the testing on small ships in 6-CZ49 for this event
  • From 16:00 to 18:00 evetime on September 20th Devs will be active for you to PVP against
  • Instructions for connecting to Duality can be found below
  • Please put your feedback in this thread


We are opening the Duality server up to the public from now through the end of the weekend, with all the rebalanced frigate and destroyer changes. The server does not have the more recent changes like the cruisers, new destroyers, ORE frigate or changes to missiles larger than lights.
The purpose of this event is to give you all a chance to test out the frigate and destroyer changes and let us know what you think of them. Towards that goal, we'll only be seeding small ships and we ask people to keep the test areas clear of anything that could discourage that testing.

If you would like to discuss the balance changes you can join the channel "Duality" ingame.

We'll have some devs active on the test server to play with you here and there throughout the whole testing period, but we are also holding a "Shoot a dev" event on Thursday the 20th of September, from 16:00 to 18:00 evetime. We devs will run some gangs of frigates and destroyers in 6-CZ49 ready to take on all comers. I expect you'll completely rock us but it will be fun all around!

The procedure to access Duality is very similar to Buckingham:

Quote:
To access Duality copy your main Eve install to a different folder.
Then create a shortcut to that folder's launcher (eve.exe).
Right click on that shortcut on the desktop, go into "Properties" and in the "Target" field put a space after the last entry in the field and type /server:87.237.38.60 to force the launcher to point towards Duality.
Once you run that shortcut the launcher will download the most recent patch for Duality and get you ready to connect.


Changes that will be on Duality:
[Winter] Existing destroyer rebalancing
[Winter] More Combat Frigates!
[Winter] EW Frigate Rebalance
[Winter] Support Frigates
[Winter] Exploration Frigate Rebalance
As well as the first round of ASB tweaks

Known Issues:
  • High sec police are protesting their low wages by shooting everyone all the time. Remember you can use the "moveme" channel to escape the post apocalyptic warzone of highsec into the peaceful safety of 0.0
  • The fitting tool is often forgetting how much CPU and PG you have left. If you switch into another ship and then switch back that usually fixes it. Relogging does the trick if nothing else is working.


TL:DR
  • Duality will be open from tonight through the weekend
  • It will be updated with the rebalanced frigates and destroyers for Winter
  • Missile and Cruiser changes are not on this build
  • We want to focus the testing on small ships in 6-CZ49 for this event
  • From 16:00 to 18:00 evetime on September 20th Devs will be active for you to PVP against

Note you can also use /server:Duality to connect to the server if you're copying across your TQ install.

Additional information about Duality:

  • Duality is using a very recent snapshot of current development code. Many features there are in progress and probably in broken state. Please concentrate on testing frigates and destroyers!
  • Feel free to write bug reports, but be aware that we will trash many of them, for example for not finished features.
  • The mirror for Duality was taken on the 3rd of September
  • Skill points for the latest mass tests have been applied (max 10M)


Known issues:

  • Faction police likes to shoot innocent capsuleers. Workaround: Avoid high sec space.
  • Fitting ships is partially broken. Try to undock and redock, if you experience problems.
  • Starting the client on the Mac seems to be broken. No workaround.

TQ to build 2213 still causes a 785.70 MB down load.

Destroyer balancing doesn't include the new set of destroyers, does it?

Edit: trololol "existing" destroyer rebalancing. Never mind, I should just learn to read.

My client doesn't seem to want to start all the way; it doesn't even show the login screen, it just kind of... Stops, and doesn't bother to finish loading or show the cursor. What can be done to fix this?

We are working on fixing the problems with connecting to Duality. I'll update as soon as we have a solution.

Is this a Windows or Mac client?
Windows: please try to get a log from logserver.exe and send it through a bug report (and update here).
Mac: My Mac client is also showing problems with updating - not sure yet, what is going on.

Bug report complete with logserv file. This is a Windows client.

Just to confirm what has already been said " Status : Unknown "

Also confirming inability to connect to Duality. Error window reads "Could not connect to specified address. Odds are that you have not established an Internet connection, the server isn't running, or the server address or port number was wrong."

Have tried both with /server:Duality and /server:87.237.38.60
