EVE Online welcomes back lapsed accounts to test its new server hardware

Make the things do the stuff.

You remember that EVE Online is testing out some new hardware for its live servers, yes? Awesome. Because you’re invited to take part in the testing. Yes, you, right there in the audience, without an active account for EVE at the moment. You are invited to test the hardware for free. It’s not much of a stress test if you aren’t stressing the servers, right?

All right, it might not specifically be you invited for the testing. The test is open to anyone who has had an active EVE Online account as far back as January of 2014, so you can’t test out the new server tech if you’ve never played or stopped playing a long time ago. Still, the important thing is that lapsed players get to jump in on the action, so that should be fun.

Yay, I love testing for free.
Worth it just to see crazy things that may or may not happen, I suppose.

Harumph. Kids today.  In the world of 1.7 year wow cycles and 3 year GW cycles, early last year IMO is not “a long time ago.”

And all characters on the test server will be given max skills for the test.  So if you’ve ever avoided EVE because it would take you too long to train into a bling-fit capital ship, now’s your chance to learn why you’d much rather fly anything smaller than a battleship.

Take part on a test server for their stress test.  Whee.
