Operation Frostline - Seasons Greetings From CCP! - Feedback
Operation Frostline is a long-running event that allows you to celebrate the holiday season with spaceship action and exciting loot. Check our your overview for sites named “Operation Frostline Target”! There you will encounter Serpentis frigates, cruisers, and a final battlecruiser that will drop stuff. Be quick, everyone can grab the loot! These sites are now appearing all over New Eden (including hisec and wormhole space) after Mordu's Legion uprooted Serpentis forces in the handover of ORE stations to their rightful owner. During that attack Serpentis forces got away with valuable assets. Mordu's Legion on behalf of the Upwell Consortium is scanning out Serpentis hideouts in retaliation and are using the Capsuleers to get revenge. This is your chance!

Grid Sizes & You - Feedback
The base grid size of 250 km was not big enough to contain all the space action you can handle, especially considering the enormous structures coming up in 2016. As such the base grid size has been increased with the December release from 250 km up to around 8000 km across. This affects also fleet warp: Anyone inside these larger grids will be affected by fleet warp. You also can position drag bubbles further away within the grid. However, please be aware that in some cases,off-grid bookmarks might become visible on the larger grids.

EVE: Valkyrie - Pre-Alpha Game Capture - December 2015
A brand new video is available showing EVE: Valkyrie pre-Alpha gameplay footage captured with a VR headset. Enjoy! EVE: Valkyrie is a VR multiplayer space combat game set in the EVE Universe and coming to Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR in 2016....

Thanks for the write-up Phantom, appreciated.

Here I used to have a sig of our old Camper in space. Now it is disregarded as being the wrong format. Looking out the window I see one thing: Nothing wrong with the format of our Camper! Silly CCP......
