What’s Happening in EVE?
Ever since the Uprising expansion went live on 8 November, there’s been a lot happening and a lot to do in New Eden. Factional Warfare activity has significantly increased, the arrival of new capsuleer communities in New Eden has been celebrated, new settings for EVE’s trusty overview have entered testing, Black Friday offers have gone live, and you can participate and benefit from absolutely all of that and more this weekend!
FACTIONAL WAR ROOM
Following the release of Uprising, Factional Warfare (FW) has heated up with over 5,300 new pilots enrolling in faction militia groups to participate! As a result of increased FW activity, the map of New Eden has changed – and continues to change – based on player activity. Whether Alpha or Omega, recruitment drives have been active across the cluster, with players of all experience levels being employed across a variety of activities.
With the updated ship restrictions on the various capture sites, all sides are testing new ships to find the right balance. The all-new Battlefield sites are creating exciting challenges as pilots rush to cash in on incredibly lucrative rewards. There's a role for everyone, from frigate to battleship - so there's time to join up! If PvP isn't your thing, there are new exploration sites with valuable components necessary for the war effort. Miners, haulers, and industrialists of all types are needed to keep the war machines running and the supply lines equipped!
Join up to support your faction, add to the 15,000+ kills and 490+ billion ISK destroyed in FW so far since Uprising launched, make new connections, and take part in the ever-changing landscape of New Eden as empires wage war, invade systems, and harvest new technology. Who knows what they'll use this cutting-edge technology for, but in New Eden there's always a profit to be made in something new!
If you're hesitant about going at it on your own, there are a long line of player corporations ready to recruit you! Head on over to the EVE Online Discord and see what will be the best fit for your playstyle.
SPANISH CAPSULEER CELEBRATION – DAILY REWARDS
Having celebrated the Spanish-speaking capsuleer community of New Eden on 22 November with CCPTV streams, fleet roams, and a fireworks extravaganza at Jita 4-4, you can continue to bask in the revelry by claiming daily login rewards such as an exclusive new capsule SKIN, many thousands of Skill Points (up to 245,000 for Omega pilots!), fireworks, and more SKINs for the new navy issue ships until 1 December!
EVOLVING OVERVIEW – TEST NOW!
EVE Online has new overview settings for you to try on the Singularity test server now, including a new default overview based on the popular Z-S Overview Pack, and long-anticipated multiple overview settings as part of the ongoing Photon UI improvements being made!

SPACE TURKEY TURMOIL - ABYSSAL PROVING GROUNDS
Hugely popular last year, the 4-player Prophecy FFA Abyssal Proving Grounds event returns for this Thanksgiving weekend, so there's no better way to celebrate than to load up a hefty space turkey and generously dispense firepower upon your fellow capsuleers! This event begins at 11:00 UTC on 25 November, and runs until 11:00 UTC on 28 November. Check out the full details on rules and restrictions for this event, then tuck in!
