Stuck Character Petitions

By Svarthol

We would like to ask all players, who have open petitions about their stuck characters and have been unstuck during the downtime maintenance, to please close or delete the petition. We have had a severe load of them, and since almost all of them will be free after downtime, it would free up our queue immensely and help those that are still stuck more quickly. If you are still stuck after downtime, please file a fresh petition, and we will help you as soon as possible. Best regards, EVE Online Cu...

We ask you all to understand that stuck players will be getting preferential treatment while we work out the cause and solution to this small but unfortunate problem. We recommend emailing us other problems through the Support Section at www.eve-online.com. We want to thank all of you for the overwhelmingly positive attitude and support you have shown and assure you that we will answer all pet...

Map: Waypoints replace

By Svarthol

You can now set waypoints to plot a route for the autopilot. Placing only one waypoint does the same as setting destination before. Placing extra waypoints tells the system where you want to go after that. You can choose via the Autopilot Settings in the world map, whether the autopilot stops at each waypoint ( good for planning trade runs or extra-secure routes ) or passes through them stopping only when the last waypoint is reached.

Quick Fix for waypoints - map not starting bug

By Svarthol

Some users are unable to open the world map after setting waypoints. It is possible to set waypoints to the same location many times. While this was thought of as a feature, it has proven to be a bug. It will be fixed in the next patch. Until then you can clear the waypoints you have set using notepad or any text editor.

Used ship salesmen

By Svarthol

The SCC has become increasingly agitated with the influx of deceitful merchants dealing in wares which do not meet up to the expected standards. In addition the blatant bundling of various lousy salesmen, who sold ships to other people yet forgot to strip them of the extra equipment, further enlightened the SCC of how bad the situation had become.

Couple this with the intensified pirate activity due to increases in space traffic and the empires have a real problem on their hands. They have now joined forces in a program that will augment their authority throughout civilized space in the near future.

Extended Server Downtime

By Svarthol

Today we are updating the server with a new version. When the new patch was deployed a bug surfaced which over loaded our database servers. This bug had not been identified before in testing, as it didn’t cause an overload until thousands of players were in game, along with a large increase in open orders on the regional markets. The servers have been restarted with a cap so we could observe what was going on and analyze the problem.

By Svarthol

Thanks to the valiant defense of the Patch Squad, the advance of the pirates was thwarted in a few heroic battles last night, at least for now. But the hordes of barbarians will probably not be stopped. The Squad is pleading for reinforcements as they continue their fight. Any help will be welcomed.
