06/04/2020
Features & Changes
Events:

  • The Hunt has begun! This event will run from 6 April to 21 April
    • Mysterious brightly colored Guristas Capsules are appearing all over New Eden! These capsules can be found at planets, moons, asteroid belts, and stargates. They are detectable through directional scanners and probe scanners.
      • When destroyed, each of these capsules will drop a Guristas Hunt Acceleration Gate Key required to pass to the final section of the Hunt and Huntmaster Outpost sites.
    • The new Guristas Hunt Outpost and Guristas Huntmaster Outpost sites are also appearing. These sites only allow access for T1 and T2 Frigates and Destroyers, and reaching the final room of these sites requires an acceleration gate key obtained from the mysterious capsules.
    • The Guristas Hunt Outpost sites can be found all over New Eden (Highsec, Lowsec, Nullsec, and W-Space).
      • Destroy the advanced fighter in the final area for a chance at valuable loot including implants, skins, clothing, modules, and blueprints for the powerful Gecko drone!
    • The Guristas Huntmaster Outpost sites are appearing in large numbers within Caldari Lowsec space and in lower numbers within the Venal region.
      • These more difficult sites also contain more valuable rewards including blueprints for the new Hydra implant set.
  • During the Hunt event, capsuleer capsules will have a 50% chance of dropping as loot each of the implants that normally would have been destroyed by the capsule destruction.

Implants:

  • The new Guristas Hydra implant set has been introduced. This implant set improves range and precision of both drone and missile weapon systems. Hydra implants have no effect on fighters.

No red dot change?

■■■■.

I’m entering Stockholm Syndrome territory so that once it is changed, I’ll be thanking you instead of continuing to think how stupidly it’s been implemented as a feature.

Loves how we have ‘solved’ tiercide by adding “seed” instead of Micro, and not standardising the “F-RX”…
Wouldn’t it have made more sense to have
“Micro F-RX Compact Capacitor Booster” (or if needed “Seed” F-RX Compact Capactitor Booster"

" * Micro Electrochemical Capacitor Booster I renamed to ‘Seed’ Micro Capacitor Booster I

  • Small Electrochemical Capacitor Booster I renamed to Small F-RX Compact Capacitor Booster
  • Medium Electrochemical Capacitor Booster I renamed to Medium F-RX Compact Capacitor Booster
  • Heavy Electrochemical Capacitor Booster I renamed to Heavy F-RX Compact Capacitor Booster

Imagine being the one who found it while cleaning the tank… yikes.

Why post info about it telling us it’s so we can prepare and then giving no info on when… how the fk do we prepare for it then?

Did CCP think it’s April 1st? We expected big things and we get some module changes and a few new missions that 0.1% of the community actually will see.

Probably lvl 2 mining missions so we can supply spodbrains!

>Unnecessary and unintuitive change to item meta
>Shafting market traders even harder with unintuative and even more excessive taxes.
>Redundant changes like some more level 2 missions? Who is ever going to benefit from this…
>Not a single change that people care about or wanted such as simple ship rebalances for obvious outliers like the Eris.

I haven’t ran missions in years, but some people enjoy it. I think it’s good that they put in this type of content, because it is overlooked in a lot of games. Other game devs might see it as “old content” and do not add more to it. Mission runners need :heart: too.

Sure, but why not at least add more L4 missions, no one does L2s

I tried to understand the market changes. I am happy with margin trading change but Don’t get the problem you want to eliminate with relisting fees and the 4 digits rounding (???) . I mean its normal in markets like jita to adjust price by one cent, it’s Something everyone does. I hope you didn’t break that with this change. I would hate that you kill what is the best market in any known game.
