Hi!
We are planning a mass test on Singularity on Tuesday, October 18th, at 17:00 UTC (= EVE time)!

What exactly is being tested?

  • New explosions
  • Client performance of Command Bursts
  • Engineering Complexes
  • General client and server performance


How to connect to Singularity for this test:
Change the server from Tranquility to Singularity in the upper left corner of the new launcher and log in as normal. More detailed instructions are available here.

Test steps:
1. Meet in FD-MLJ at the gate to X-BV98
2. Jump to X-BV98.
3. Test the new Command Bursts
4. Warp to an Engineering Complex
5. Shoot the Engineering Complex
6. Maybe: Check drones
7. Fleet W: Jump to Poitot + setup gate camp.
8. Fleet X: Jump to Poitot + fight at the gate + explosions (without Command Bursts)
9. Several minutes later: Allow Command Bursts

What else should I know?

  • Use the command /moveme to be moved to the start system FD-MLJ
  • 2M Skill points will be awarded on Singularity for this mass test
  • Bring anything you like to the test (preferably something with weapons!)
  • Feel free to fit a Command Burst and load appropriate charges

Chan'aar + RainReaper: Happening now (Patch for sure, multiple command bursts hopefully, but still a temporay solution)

Edit: The fix for multiple command bursts missed the build, you'll need to wait for tomorrow Oops

Looking forward to this!

Allowing players to use features pre-release on the test servers is something CCP is quite clever to do.

I think the feedback and the buzz it generates helps keep the game fresh.

Good job guys!

When will engineering complexes be available to test?

I am an industrialist so I am keen to set one up and run it through it's paces.

Then blow it up. lol Lol

No need to panic - the PANIC button has been added to the market on Sisi. Cool Feel free to bring it to the mass test - but we have no special test step for it.

Sorry No Panic on SISI, (No ORE superweapons at all) , no excavator drones that can be checked out, stats for rorqual are also mostly old (****** drone bay).

As a dedicated rorqual booster pilot I would still decide to stay in my POS booble... At least it provide some entertiment..Ugh

Also just curious what would happen with my current boosterm modules they will get converted with no amo for them for 30 jumps or more... any chance on giving some for free for making them useless ?

So we are testing if the new Engineering Complexes explode properly right?

What about letting people actually test the structures and other changes including the Orca, Rorqual and Porpoise for you know actually making stuff and mining?

Pulse Activated Nexus Invulnerability Core does not burn out after one use, currently at 15+ minutes with cyno running along with it.

It would be nice to man the defenses of an engineering complex, but they are going to be automatic correct.

No direct control like a POS gunner.

Too bad I enjoy that skill and the kills it brings. Even though CCP never found it worthwhile to issue kill mails for POS Defenders.

I really want to see how Citadel Engineering Complexes can take and give a punch.

They will work exactly the same way as Citadels - no automatic defense, someone needs to be in the gunner seat to shoot back.
