How do I learn about upcoming events? Is there a calendar of some sort?
There used to be updates.eveonline.com but that’s just another abandonware from CCP. Nowadays you have to pay attention to huge ingame splash screens when you log in or hope that CCP communicates them beforehand instead of just dropping the ball at the day of the event start.
Generally, there are always events at Valentine’s, Carnival, Easter, something in the summer, Halloween, Christmas.
The next events that are upcoming is the Minmatar Liberation day, followed by the Amarr foundation day. I also run a summer event from July 14 to August 14, that cover both the Liberation day and Foundation day. its to celebrate 2 years request to bring the old arena back. In September there will be the Caldari union day.
