Rules of conduct for the public test server
The public test server for EVE Online is named Singularity. The focal point for player gathering on Singularity is M-OEE8.
Please note: Keep in mind that the primary purpose of Singularity is testing upcoming features and changes.
Below are the official rules concerning the test server.
- No interfering with CCP, volunteer or player testing.
- Combat by consent only, except in the designated combat system (M-OEE8).
- Do not ask CCP Devs, GMs or volunteers for skills, ships or items.
- No mass-dropping of items in space (structures, warp bubbles, shuttles, POS modules etc). This can affect server stability and performance.
- Do not make mass market purchases. This can affect server stability and performance and will hinder other people's testing. Buy only what you need.
- Do not mass refine large numbers of ships or items. This can affect server stability and performance.
- Selling items on the Test server for ISK on TQ is not allowed.
- No politics on the test server. Leave your Tranquility conflicts behind when you log on the test server.
- The rules of conduct and the EULA for the Tranquility server apply on the test servers as well (no offensive language, harassment etc).
Combat systems (M-OEE8) specific additional rules
- No AoE warp inhibiting modules at the gate and the CCP owned structures (within 500 km).
Rules concerning Sovereignty and player owned infrastructure
- The first person to claim sovereignty in an unclaimed system is entitled to hold sovereignty in that system until such time as the claim becomes invalid.
- Exceptions from the above rule: If the sovereignty claiming is done with malicious intent, i.e. to disrupt other players' testing, the right to sovereignty is void.
- Claiming or challenging sovereignty in a system already claimed by another alliance is not allowed without consent.
- The rule concerning non-consensual combat includes all structures (including POS and Upwell structures). Do not attack structures without permission from the owner!
- Breach of the rules may result in disciplinary actions up to (perma-)banning from the test server (including alt accounts).
- Disciplinary actions are non-negotiable.
