The Guardian's Gala is an annual celebration for the Angel Cartel and the Serpentis pirate factions to rejoice in past successes and discuss future business ventures.

This time, CONCORD is calling out for Capsuleer assistance to counter this pirate menace.

Check out our latest blog about the Guardian's Gala between Feb 14 and 28, and how YOU can profit from it.

But... why only Gallente SKINs? No love for the Minmatar :/

Question: will the scope network ever be used again? It was introduced in order to give events a structure, used once and never seen again.

Will it only be used for introduction of the big stuff like the Serpentis capitals or has the system been scrapped?

When will Skins come with a bonus to shields, armor or hull EHP or resistances?

Why would us Gallente care about narcotics? Other than do we have lots...

Are we not the liberal party animals of legend? Shocked

I think that if Angel cartel could ever come up with golden camouflage, they would really turn attention away from drugs in their cargo.

Nice to see some official info on future content coming down the pipeline. Those skins look pretty cool. I'm looking forward to seeing the PvP that happens in these sites.

I completely agree with this. Also, we haven't even seen any pirate capitals released since the serpentis were released. When will we see the Blood Raider?

Probably when CCP are reasonably convinced that the Pirate Capitals they've already released haven't broken the game in some way.

If I had to guess it's under refinement. Of the various pieces from that first event the points system was one of the more widely panned, as was having the major rewards be through a secure payout rather than as site-loot.

I would be surprised if we never saw the system again, but I'm not surprised that it's been a while.

Because nothing says inconspicuous like having a unique multi color patterned paint job.

Can we be done pretending the lore is a thing? Pretty much every word of that devblog was complete nonsense in terms of existing lore. Sure, do an event and reward boosters and skins. Whatever. But you sound like a 12 year old's fanfic when you try to pretend there's some meaningful reason for it other than "we think it'll get people to log in."

Maxim 6. If violence wasn’t your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.

Wow, the devs must have a lot of patience to deal with these kinds of responses on the forums. Keep doing what you guys do best. The skins look cool. When you get to Minmatar, please make the skins vibrant and exciting :)

What joy; 2 weeks to flood the market with unknown "performance enhancing" boosters (that will have an expiry date) and some "unique" skins that will be so plentiful - they become worthless.

So much thought and preparation on Devs part, I wonder if the 5 minutes it took to think up this "unique" event was tiring. I personally hope it wasn't too taxing, would be nice if some of the bugs and defects on TQ could be fixed, one day.

My opinions are mine.

  If you don't like them or disagree with me that's OK.- - - - - - Just don't bother Hating - I don't care

It really is getting harder and harder to justify $23 a month for each sub.

Plentiful, "worthless" SKINs are great! The actual events have me bored to tears by now, since it's always the same shoot-and-loot, without anything exciting to do.

But after every event, when the markets are still flooded, I can grab tons of cheap SKINs. That arrangement is perfect: Paying a pittance so other people do the hard work. P

ugly skins. its just youle skins recolored red instead of blue.
same ugly two tone spot pattern though and now it just looks like you flew through the side of a space barn instead of blue ice from an airplane toilet.

but for purposes of selling them to people with awful taste and too much money what level are these sites?
