EVE CSS Crisis update: Crisis, what crisis?

By Svarthol

Well, the crisis that's been building up for the past three weeks or so. For only the second time in the history of our department, the GM team has to admit defeat. In light of recent developments, rollbacks, server restarts, misapplied hotfixes, staff shortage, summer vacations and a possible ancient Egyptian curse, We have decided that the best course of action is to empty our queue entirely and ask those of you who still have an outstanding issue to please update your emails or file a new one...

Still stuck crisis occurring on Tranquility (Updated 18:00)

By Svarthol

Update: We have rolled back one hotfix and rebooted at 17:30 after a stuck crisis started. The last days we have had a number of nodes on our cluster go into a state which cause players to be permanently stuck. The only resolution at this point in time is to reboot the whole cluster and we have been doing this when stuck players are reaching thousands. We're have a number of steps we have been taking to take to address this, today we will begin with rolling back some of the hotfixes applied duri...

Criminal flagging UI bugged!

By Svarthol

The criminal flagging interface does not currently differentiate between a ship and a pod, which leads players to think that a pod is criminally flagged. This is not the case. You can attack a flagged player in his ship, but should you blow up his pod in secure space, you will receive a security hit, followed by Concord response. You can blow up someone's pod without getting a security hit if your opponent has a security status of -5 or lower, if you are at war with your opponent, or if you are ...

Lack of concrete results “a nightmare for the markets”, SuVee claims

By Svarthol

LONETREK. Despite recent news about a major leap forward in the ongoing investigation, current downward market trends are “not due to [Amarrian Emperor Doriam II] assassination itself, but to CONCORD’s inefficiency at showing results”, says SuVee CFO. “CONCORD announcing ‘major leaps’ while producing no concrete results and thus preventing [the Amarrian acting regent] Chamberlain Karsoth taking actions concerning the selection of the next Emperor is become a nightmare for the markets”, claims a ...

Corpmail exploit - cease and desist, evildoers!

By Svarthol

There is a recently discovered bug, which allows you, through rather convoluted means to send a corpmail to other corporations than your own. This has of course been utilized by some of our more enterprising players to send "humorous" messages to the general displeasure of their captive audience. This is a warning to all those inclined to share their wit with other corporations without their consent: Anyone found sending a mail to a corporation not his own after the time of this announcement wil...

New routes

By Svarthol

JITA – THE FORGE. After what was a week of low-keyed grumbling about “increased commodity prices” and “logistic nightmares” from the pod pilot community, the bustling Niyabainen – Jita – Sobaseki hub at the heart of the Caldari state seems busier than ever. “Can’t help but expect that next time the CEP decides such a major logistic revamping we get informed in advance”, said Oikanen Hilo, ship manufacturer at Kisogo “yet it does seem some of the changes may have a positive impact on business.
