Hi!
We are planning a mass test on Singularity on Tuesday, April 21st, at 17:00 UTC (= EVE time).

What exactly is being tested?


How to connect to Singularity for this test:

Test steps:
Probably similar to:

  1. Meet in FD-MLJ at the X-BV98 gate
  2. Jump to X-BV98
  3. Switch SKINs
  4. Warp to POS beacon
  5. Shoot the control tower
  6. Align to Poitot gate
  7. Fleet 1: Jump to Poitot and setup gate camp
  8. Fleet 2: Jump to Poitot + fight at the gate


What else should I know?
  • We will be moving players to the test system - join the channel massmoveme
  • 2M Skill points will be awarded on Singularity for this mass test
  • Bring many different ships with SKINs (with activated SKIN licenses)

will you be rewarding 2 million sp to people in leopards who only log on and do first jump and get sp every time? If so why bother bringing anything other than a leopard.

I'm a bit new to this. but the sp reward, is that only usable in the test server? or can we use it on a character in tranquility?

The SP reward is only usable on the test server and not Tranquility.

*) OS: Win7 Home Premium 64 bit with all patches applied.
*) CPU: Intel i7-3770K @ 3.5 GHz (not OC).
*) Chipset: Intel Z77.
*) RAM: 8 GB (2x4 GB dual channel) @ 1866 MHz.
*) Game, including data cache, installed on dedicated 120 GB SSD, OS is on an old school 7200 RPM mechanical HD. All SiSi graphics and game data (cache) preloaded via launcher settings.
*) GPU: nVidia GTX 970 w/ 4 GB VRAM.
*) Monitor: 2560x1440 @ 60 Hz. Max. FPS limited to 60 by vsync (on purpose via settings).
*) Single client, fullscreen DX11 mode.
*) Client settings: *Everything* set to maximum details / quality (High), including anti-aliasing. All brackets visible. No drone models nor camera shake, everything else On. Purty.

Tl;dr: Everything ran smoothly and flawlessly. No bugs encountered. SKINs switched when I wanted them to with perhaps the slightest of delays at times. Slight module response hesitation during the fleet battle, and seems there was a bit of TiDi as well.

FPS:

At gate swapping SKINs: 55-60.
Shooting at POS: 35-40.
Shooting at POS zoomed out all the way: 57-60 fps.
Fleet battle when the manure hit the ventilation device: 30-35 fps, easily playable.

Social chitchat:

*) Apologies to the single fleet X Scorpion, but you jammed a drone boat. Twisted
*) Much love to fleet W logistics, who kept me alive throughout to the end of the fleet battle. <3

Thanks to all those who helped with this mass test. Skill points have been applied.

Amak Boma: While we had launcher problems several hours before the mass test, it should have worked fine during the mass test and at least 3 hours before it. Do you still have this problem?

Aina Emeraldas: The data on the test server is wiped and copied from the main server every few months. Many players use these additional skill points to test out ships on Singularity, which they cannot fly yet on Tranquility.

Now where should I start..... Firstly I'll take a deep breath......calm down..

I took a break from eve and returned a month or two ago, get all excited about the changes and decided to try join the singularity server....alas, when i set up the test server as described everything went okay ....untill i tried to log in....guess what!!!!

I'm not subscribed (apparantly) , so....with obvious bliss to the error I open a ticket on my account management login (not through the in game ticket support option, actually log into my account via website)...which should address all servers...but no, the replies I get state catagorically that the GM's have no control over Singularity, only tranquility . I then get told to address this on the forums.

Its sad that with multiple accounts...and paying REAL life cash for them that this gets portrayed to me as "my problem"

If I did this to my paying customers in my business, I would be on the unemployement benefit real soon.

So I ask you, how do I get the opportunity to partake if I am being denied service?

At Least 2 of my accounts cannot access Singularity. Now this may seem trivial, but this is in fact Directly influencing my gameplay, since the results of my experiments on Singularity will DIRECTLY influence My training cue on tranquility.

So I ask you, What do I do now? Keep playing on tranquility? and be ever denied service till the right snapshot of my accounts comes through? console myself to the fact i am at the mercy of those that deem its not their problem?

Another thought comes to mind, but i do not think its wise to vocalise that even in text at this point, since at the moment i am like an ant on a toilet seat....pissed off!!!!

Here is what you need to do:

1: Post Here
2: Realize that Singularity is for CCP's testing not ours.
3: Wait for a mirror to have a "better" snapshot of your character AND assets.
4: Realize that this mass-test was on the 21st and you posted on the 24th.


On a separate note: Why is this still a sticky?

1:Thanks for that post I do not recall any of the support replies including the link that you so kindly provided. Hence me posting here. I do not frequent the forums , this is the first time I am actually posting ever on the forums. On that note without that link you posted I would not have a clue where to post on the forums for the right responce or perhaps place for this complaint,

2: Singularity well be for ccp's testing, but its non the less a service offered and since the requirement is to be subscribed...well i guess i am paying for that...and not getting it. Yes you are right, this is ccps problem, but ...nowhere do I have any avenue to directly address this to them since support said catagorically my next port of call is the forums

3: Wait for a snapshot???? basically grin and bear it? I think not

4: Nowhere did i ever refer to Mass test as my bugbear, I cannot connect to Singularity , nor did any of the support refer me to post to the link that you so kindly provided therefore i post on the only forum i knew of in this topic, this is very relevant to my testing, since the essence is not the mass test , but more the chnges while i was on a break. I believe every one of us is entitled to play this game as we see fit within eula and TOS rules

Either way Thank you for redirecting me to the right forum, I will not troll this one
