Player-Driven Events At Fanfest!

By CCP Falcon

Mirroring EVE's sci-fi sandbox, Fanfest 2015 will have a more players-first approach than previous events. To that end, we're working on getting the EVE community more involved in the event by recently requesting submissions for player speakers and encouraging players to plan their own events (with some help and promotion from us, of course). Thursday night will be fully dedicated to player events.

Client Audio Issues Workaround

By CCP Falcon

We have been made aware of an issue that may potentially cause performance issues for players in large fleet fights, or during high activity missions on low end gaming systems. Unfortunately, the only workaround at present is to either disable audio, or to disable turret graphic effects in the escape menu within the EVE client, as these graphics trigger the affected audio. We are currently working on a solution to this issue, and should have it patched as soon as possible.

30 Day Trials Now Available!

By CCP Falcon

We are happy to announce that as of today, we have increased the length of a standard EVE Online trial from 14 days to 30 days. While the 14 day trial has served us well in the past, we feel it prudent to allow new players more time to take their first steps into New Eden and adjust to life as a Capsuleer. A longer trial allows new pilots to experience more of the amazing social and political landscape of EVE, and gives those who are taking their first flight through the awesome universe we've ...
