Hello Dear EVE Mac users,
At this time, please do not plan to upgrade to macOS Monterey on you M1 based computer, as it will not work. I test the different available wine versions provided by CCP via the launcher and all ended in Ptah ram not launching.
When/If CCP adds support for the wine 6.* family, I will test again and update this post.
For now: please continue to use the 4.17 version: if that isn’t working on your M1, a recent patch from CCP may have been the cause, please delete your EVE folder found in application support and redownload the game (this worked for me, and I have only seen feed back of one person still mentioning issues afterwards, but the game runs)
