Hi all.

We've now enabled the Shadow of the Serpent event on Singularity.
This means that you will now see the Scope Network on your character select screen and Neocom.

The Scope Network will provide you with challenges which when completed, will award you with the points assigned to that challenge.
As you complete challenges, you will see your points total increasing and how many remain until you unlock the next reward.

Please note that the rewards gifted here are not final, and incomplete challenges expire after 3 days and are replaced with a new challenge.


For more information on the Shadow of the Serpent event, read the dev blog here:
https://community.eveonline.com/news/dev-blogs/shadow-of-the-serpent-signal-the-dawn/


Known issues are as follows:

* Rewards are not final.




We are looking forward to hearing your feedback and ideas!

Just a quick note, the rewards on the login screen should have some kind of hover or right click option to know what they are. Icons are nice and I recognize most of them but it isn't clear what exactly the ship rewards are or the thing in the middle tier.

Are the challenges final? Or placeholders?

This is something we're aware of and will try and get to before release.

There will be some tweaks here and there but they are mostly final for this event.

Hey! Just curious... is this similar to the Blood Raider and Gurista events earlier this year where anomalies featuring the pirates popped up all over New Eden?

My corp currently lives in Kinakka, which is in Black Rise and has Gurista pirates. It would be very annoying to miss out on the higher tier rewards because I would have to take many, many jumps to go to Minmatar regions to kill some Angel pirates. Likewise, I think the corps living in Heimatar, Metropolis, Molden Heath, etc. would find it annoying to go to Placid to kill some Serpentis pirates.

Yes, there are anomalies/sites open throughout New Eden to find! You'll see them globally in the Overview. Some sites such as Serpentis Sortie, Angel Cartel Mining Outpost, or Sepentis Mobilization Point. They are all active now on Singularity to find.

It's really good but one thing: Scope Network UI dosn't fit very well in clean and modern look of login screen (not to mention now it's asymmetrical)

The "news ticker" can be irritating to some folks, both for the animation effect and waiting to read all the info. it's a good effect to have by default. But could you add code that, on mouse-click, would stop the animation, and display all news text at once?

(I hope to see a few items added and removed in the "news," as the event progresses.)

CCP please argue amongst yourselves about the use of the word "killed" in regards to the completion counters on the Scope UI. Ships are "destroyed" - I think this word fits better. NPC's are anonymous for the most part, and I feel like I'm not making any progress against Zor.

edit: Filed EBR-85325 in regards to a potential UI scaling issue with the text.

It looks good.

But I don't want to shoot Angel Cartel or Serpentis, I want to shoot CONCORD and other "Law Enforcement."

How about something for the pirate PCs at some point?

(Also, Angel Cartel and Serpentis Outlaw Bundles please and thanks).

There's some issues with having a smaller monitor (on my laptop, at least), considering how wide the new bar makes the character select screen. While my desktop (and widescreen monitor) had no issues, looking at it on my laptop had the new content tucked under the third character box.

Character selection screen.

- news ticker needs to have links to news articles.

- Needs to be some information on who the Serpentis and Angel Cartel are. why do they matter etc. otherwise it just feels like a artificial go shoot x ships for x reward which is uninspiring and not immersive. If we had a reason for completing the missions it would be alot better.. eg that it contributed to a storyline that had a lasting impression on new eden.

- reward icons. Need to state what the reward is when you hover the mouse over (or click). Not everyone can recongise the ship by its shape etc. Be nice to have it link to the ship tree. So new players could see the progression they need to make before they can fly that ship reward. Would give them a nice goal to work towards.

Inspace UI

- FFS ... Evil Can we please NOT have ANOTHER ICON !!! that takes up space on our screen while we flying around. If im not currently flying a mission for scope why do I need a perma icon on my screen.

Atleast allow us to disable the scope icon on top right hand corner. same with daily opportunities icon. Give us an option to disable it ! Already I have so much ui and windows open its a noticeable and extremely annoying distraction from flying in space.

I understand you want to publicize your new feature. but its on the character selection screen and its on the neo com... it doesnt need to be permanently on the inspace ui as well. Not everyone is going to want to do scope missions for 100% of the time in Eve.

Wormhole space.
Is there a reaon why the pirate factions are now in wormhole space ? be nice if you had sleeper missions.. would be a bit more immersive.

Event NPC's are leaving wrecks; in the previous event, they did not, and this was answered at the time to be "by design." Is this change intentional?

Consider adding pop-up warnings about threats you might face, when warping to the beacons. Some of the sites might make you wish you brought a different ship. Or friends!

Some new structure naming is generic. If possible, consider adding the name of Citadel and Vault "owner" in sites they are used in: Serpentis, Angel, etc.

The Research Vault in one of the shipyard sites lacks a collision boundary, allowing ships to fly inside it.


Challenge text could provide more info to help players find content.

DED complexes: could use a link to more information about what these are, and that scan probes might help find them.

Terrorize the Angels: (Angel Cartel Assembly Point sites) Where are these typically found? At first, this site name made me think of the standard Rally Point cosmic anomaly (lowsec.)

Hunting the Serpentis: (shoot Serpentis Guards) Where do I go to find them? (I just saw an Event guard, so they might appear anywhere. A Serpentis Guard NPC already exists, the event NPC name might cause a tiny bit of confusion. e.g., "Why am I not getting credit for shooting them:" wrong type.)

Pop up would be nice, middle item appears to use the cerebral accelerator image, so possibly that.

Unsure if intended or not, but drones will not engage the Angel Bunker inside Angel Cartel Assembly site; this was attempted in high sec, ship guns would damage, drones would not.

Completed challenges do not seem to actually add points to your total; i.e. completed Angel Sortie Challenge, Scope Network drop down showed completion w/ check mark, 50 point market, etc. while the full event UI still shows zero total. Sortie challenge has updated to Mining Network.


*edit* In addition, killing the Serpentis Battlecruisers inside Angel Sortie sites do not count towards Serpentis Clean Up

dont seem to get any points when i complete the serpentis challenges

did two.....says i completed them but the status bar did not move and there were no points in the total for me

+1 to the above about adding hover over to the rewards UI - most of us snarky old boys know what those items are. However newbeans will have little to no idea.

Cheers,

Regan
