Compromised Accounts - Update

By Svarthol

As many of you remember, a number of accounts were compromised about three weeks ago. The source which enabled this was very old, from an old test cluster, resulting in mainly older accounts being compromised. This was the reason for us resetting passwords for a number of users at that time. Billing information was never at risk. Many of the players we asked to change their passwords then changed them back to their old passwords or changed nothing but caps, which resulted in further accounts bei...

Matari-Gallente Exodus May Be Underway, New Study Says

By Svarthol

Researchers at the University of Caille today published a study warning that a mass population exodus from Republic territories may be imminent. According to numbers published in the Federation’s Year 107 Census Index, the influx of Matari immigrants into Federation-controlled regions, a figure with little historic variation, has within the past six months swelled to near sevenfold inflation figures from earlier periods.

Amarrian loyalists clash with Gallente nationalist alliance

By Svarthol

Last fortnight saw the Aegis Militia declare a formal war against The Cyrene Initiative after an apparent escalation in hostilities between the two alliances. While casual observers speculated on the GalNet Communications Network as to the reasons behind the conflict, it became apparent that pilots within The Cyrene Initiative had provoked the hostilities; either through direct aggression on AM shipping or through other actions which the Aegis Militia had deemed a threat to their wellbeing. Spea...

By Svarthol

Residents of Fountain would be forgiven for being surprised at the sight, as the Serpentis Corporation set forth. Intent on engaging the Band of Brothers (BoB) Alliance, the Serpents brought a fleet that consisted of several Vindicators and a Thanatos carrier to the Delve region, where BoB have been quite busy in various locales.

Border Disagreement Escalates into War

By Svarthol

While calls for a stable, unified south have been common sight on the GalNet channels lately, it would seem that they will not be fulfilled in the near future; the northern forces had barely began moving out when a new conflict emerged in the regions, this time between former allies, namely the Stain- Alliance and Firmus Ixion. Tensions started when FIX had reset their standings towards the SA to neutral thereby invoking friendly-fire incidents.

UPDATED: New patch Deployed - Happy Dev Petition Day Tomorrow

By Svarthol

The new patch was deployed to Tranquility in this downtime, focusing on fixing a number of client and server issues. However, a big mistake with agent locations got out to Tranquility, which moved the previously moved agents back to their original high-traffic solar systems. They were forcibly relocated back to their new homes in a reboot in addition to a fix to starbases. Known issues in the patch are listed here. Since the patch is out, we're going to focus on clearing up the support queues by...

Wasp drones and their use in combat

By Svarthol

Any losses caused by Wasp drones (before and after this announcement) can be petitioned through the Ask a Question section under the Reimbursement category. This issue will be fixed in the next client patch so please do not use ...
