Mass test on Singularity: Tuesday September 5th, 2017


(CCP Habakuk) #1


We are planning a mass test on Singularity on Tuesday, September 5th, at 17:00 UTC (= EVE time)!

What exactly is being tested?

  • Improved turret firing effects
  • First look at the new Refineries, the Tatara and the Athanor
  • Verifying a backend configuration change - should have no impact
  • Client and server performance

How to connect to Singularity for this test:
Change the server from Tranquility to Singularity in the upper left corner of the launcher and log in as normal. More detailed instructions are available here.

Test steps:
(not final yet)

  1. Meet in FD-MLJ at a Tatara
  2. Undock and warp to X-BV98
  3. Jump to X-BV98.
  4. Warp to an Athanor
  5. Sub-capitals: Dock at Athanor
  6. Undock
  7. Shoot the Athanor
  8. Fleet W: Jump to Poitot + setup gate camp.
  9. Fleet X: Jump to Poitot + fight at the gate

What else should I know?

  • Use the command /moveme to be moved to the start system FD-MLJ
  • 2M Skill points will be awarded on Singularity for this mass test
  • Bring preferably a sub-capital ships with turrets - Beams, Pulses, Railguns, Blasters, Artillery, Autocannons

Massentest am 5. September um 17:00 Uhr UTC

3am local time…
Is there any way us upside downers can get some SP to play with on Singularity?

(zluq zabaa) #5

Just an idea, but how about allocate more ressources for such tests? The lag is no fun.

(CCP Habakuk) #6

Beside a very short time during the jump to X-BV98 we did not have any server lag at all so far.

(zluq zabaa) #7

Rgr, then for some reason my Client has problems on SiSi.

p.s. sorry for the unfriendly tone :smiley:

Most impressive was the battle of ships !

(Nightfall75) #9

what i have noticed on my system (i5, 16gb, gtx 770)
-mass undock fps is about 28
-mass shooting fps is about 16
-on sun (no ships) fps is about 60

-taking screenshot (PrintScreen) causes fps drop to 1, after a couple of seconds it restores

-i’ve got 4 different type of lenses and 4 different guns, 2 T1 and 2 T2
Aurora (red) Imperial Navy Standart (yellow) Multifrequency (White) and Scorch (Magenta)
i saw first three colored beams from my ship and didn’t see Magenta.

-several short minor lags (about a second) but i think it is normal for 400 ships battle

thanks for event)

Bahhh! Why is there such little notice on these events??

Second mass test that has snuck right past me :frowning:

(Rei Ayannami) #11

How soon will a new mirror? I would like to see new AT ships in action

(CCP Habakuk) #12

2 million skill points have been added to 576 participating characters on Singularity! Thank you for helping with the mass test!

Flechette: Hmmm, what kind of notification would work for you, at which time? For this mass test the forum thread was posted on Friday, the news message was sent on Monday. I think a message in the launcher was displayed a few hours before the mass test.

Rei Ayannami: None planned at the moment.

(Flechette) #13

Hrmm, is it possible to ‘follow’ specific forums??

ie. get email notification when there’s a new post in the Test Server Feedback forum?
