ROCK YOU LIKE A SPREADSHEET

EVE Online is gearing up for its October patch next week, and unlike most MMO patches this month, it isn’t saddled with spooks and gore. The game kinda has both already.

“The October release brings a host of light balance changes, including tweaks to the Damavik based on community feedback, as well as changes to nullification on combat interceptors, and the introduction of the new Zero-Point mass entangler module,” CCP says. “In addition to this, the October release brings a number of visual fixes and improvements, as well as some changes that should increase performance, including the removal of area of effect damage when a titan class hull is destroyed. This release also brings substantial changes to ECM mechanics that will allow for more varied counter play and retaliation against pilots using ECM.”

Launch is slated for Tuesday, October 9th, and if it all seems a little bit slim, just remember that EVE Vegas is also coming this month, so we’re expecting big stuff then. Newish to the game? Make sure you check out our latest guide to ship-fitting for rookies!
