Dev blogs and announcements
PLEX Changes On The Way! - Feedback link
Changes are coming to PLEX, Aurum and the New Eden Store! The first planned change is to convert every existing PLEX into 500 PLEX. After the change, anything you could get for 1 PLEX from CCP will instead require 500 PLEX. We will also convert all existing Aurum balances above 1000 Aurum to the new PLEX!

March release 119.3 has been deployed
We deployed the release 119.3 on March 14. Check out EVE Updates for high level info information. For more in-depth details, we have the patch notes! Please use the forum threads for general feedback (PC build), known issues (PC build) and feedback and known issues (Mac build).

New Eden Store: Convergence-Nova SKIN for Garmur frigates
The popular Convergence-Nova SKIN for the Garmur frigate is back! Check out the New Eden Store. Enjoy this exciting orange and titanium-black theme for the Mordu's Legion frigate.

Changes to PLEX
EVE Online's beloved PLEX is changing. This video introduces the planned updates to PLEX and how the changes aim to strengthen and simplify its use. Don't forget to check out the companion dev blog.

What is the Council of Stellar Management?
The Council of Stellar Management is a group democratically elected by the players, for the players. This video gives you an insight, why the CSM is valuable for you as a player of EVE.

Game development
Total Net Worth - Improved!
The Total Net Worth number is a sum of all the ISK you own and the estimated value of your assets. This casts some light on your character progress in EVE. CCP Turtlepower answers some design questions and explains details about this feature.

New scanning - Scanning cone not moving?
With the new scanning UI, the directional scan cone goes off the direction of your camera. It doesn't use the direction of your ship.

Issues and troubleshooting
Launching a favorite group of drones via a shortcut
With the 119.3 release, you can launch your favorite group of drones via a shortcut. Right click on the group you wish to be your default and select "Mark group as favorite for launching"!

Graphic settings - Interval immediate
In the graphics settings you can set the interval level. Interval immediate means you are always running your graphic card at maximum FPS. This is most likely a waste and not necessary. Try Interval One instead!

Decay of T1 mobile warp disruptors
After the 119.3 release, mobile warp disruptors can decay. It has begun, as CCP Fozzie informs us! 7853 Tech 1 Mobile Warp Disruptors decayed on March 16.

Revenge is a dish best served cold ... 4 years later ...
Only possible in EVE! Years ago, a young player got repeatedly troubled by pirates. Four years later, that formerly young player has grown into a respectable scallywag himself. By pure chance, he meets that old pirate. But this time, the tables have turned!

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

...suddenly PLEX? O_o

makes sense for microtransactions if you're looking to push aurum out, but holy hell the market is gonna do some weird sh*t in response to these changes

Only thing you guys did this week, killed fighters and further made the PvE aspect of carriers even worse. GFYS CCP.

Still no fixes to actual game play, just more mechanics to work around and meta. It's battlecruisers all over again. RIP the time of the hurricane, RIP the time of the drake. So seriously, GFYS from the bottom of my heart.

So I go away for a week, and upon my return... Carriers are no longer viable for PVE.

5 mins in the haven and half a wing dead.

Thanatos for sale, someone take this piece of **** off me.

back to the rattlesnake we go.

So CCP is changing Plex all around, Hmm not sure I like this if it ends up costing me real money here.
I have a bunch of Aurum and if net result is a loss. Well just another game company stealing money,
not to mention how this could truly disrupt the market system.

Trying to see the positive side of this. Guess I'll do the scientific method and keep my fingers crossed :)
