“Last year, the Guardian’s Gala was once again attacked by opportunistic capsuleers. This time around the Angel Cartel are back, more prepared than ever to ward off the inevitable assault. Otuwiri and Khaitetha have sworn vengeance on the capsuleers after last year’s humiliation and will be laying in wait for unsuspecting pilots who think they can make a quick few kredits by crashing the party.”
Notably, the studio is rolling out CCPlease, a tracker specifically for quality-of-life improvements (as opposed to EVE Updates, which is focused on larger content features). “CCPlease will be focused on several key projects at a time, selected by CCP based on community feedback and concerns, and will chart the progress of how work on these projects is coming along,” CCP writes. “The aim is both transparency, and accountability for key quality of life improvements to New Eden, as well as increasing awareness of the status of these projects.”
CCP Games also copped to “failing on both fronts” when it comes to its communication and deployment of the game’s chat system last year. While “vital future-proofing work” continues on the chat system overhaul, the studio’s also offering compensation for the mess: “The highest skillpoint character on every account that held Omega clone status as of the start of daily downtime on March 20th, 2018 (the day the chat system was deployed) will receive a gift of 500,000 skillpoints in their unallocated skillpoint pool.”
Finally, the usual suspects are planning their Burn Jita gankfest at the end of February, so stay away.
The February release brings a whole host of quality of life tweaks to EVE along with UI fixes, stability improvements & visual updates.
