A communications blackout threatens EVE Online


The recent Triglavian invasions of EVE Online’s galaxy is starting to impact the player population in an unexpected quarter: by denying pilots the ability to effectively communicate with each other.

CCP broadcast that all of nullsec space will soon be hit by a communications blackout that will at least hamper chatter between players. In-universe, this is being done because the Fluid Network is under attack; out of universe, the studio said that it would give the playerbase a 48-hour warning before toggling on the event.

“Local chat in all nullsec space will be switched over to delayed mode,” CCP said. “This means that it will behave as local chat in wormhole space, with pilots only appearing in the local population listing should they choose to post messages. Obviously, this will cause a substantial change to the dynamics of nullsec, so we want to inform the community before we begin.”
