139 years ago, the Minmatar rebellion against the Amarr Empire was successfully completed with the liberation of the Minmatar home worlds. In celebration of the Minmatar Liberation Day, we made available a special ship SKIN for several Minmatar ships: Firewall Breach. The most striking feature of this SKIN is a symbolized silver Khuumak and a fiery red color gradient.
The results of the T-Shirt design contest are in. You have exceeded our wildest expectations!
Thank you! The winners receive PLEX, credits for the EVE Store and Frigates of EVE Online: The Cross Sections book.
We completely overhauled the strategic cruiser ship class. Some highlights:
- Four instead of five subsystems (removed Electronic subsystem)
- Three, instead of four, subsystem choices per subsystem
- Ability to unfit rigs without destroying them
- A new dedicated 120m3 subsystem bay
Further details are available here.
With the August release, we will retire Captain's Quarters. Twitch streaming integration will be removed in September. Several reasons lead to this decision:
- Maintaining Captain's Quarters use up 4-6 weeks of dev time
- Current state of CQ starts hurting our dev teams
- Upgrading CQ would require 6-8 months of development time
- Less than 3% of the player base use Captain's Quarters
- Twitch integration is not being used, freely available products are better and very popular
The resulting freed dev time will be used for producing new content and to improve and advance the technologies (e.g. working on a 64-bit client).
