The new Abyssal Proving Grounds season is starting with a bang, with the first round focusing on high intensity 1v1 battlecruiser combat.
In this unique round – running 23-25 July exclusively – you’ll find the arena scattered with high numbers of exploding Bonus Nexus objects. Get too close to one and you’ll detonate it, triggering a blast that applies weapon and mobility buffs to your ship... but not your rival’s. And if they blow up a Nexus object, they’ll enjoy the same gains. It’s a sure-fire way to mix up the dynamic of each battle, bringing plenty of twists of fate and dramatic finishes.
If that weren’t enough, this Proving Grounds round introduces a repeatable challenge. Deal at least 7000 damage to your opponent in a single battle, and you’ll get a 20 million ISK reward.
All ships that enter the arena will also gain double the benefits of overheating the following module groups:
- Tackle Modules
- Propulsion Modules
- Repair Modules
- Resistance Modules
- Energy Warfare Modules
To keep things moving and ensure every round excites, sensor dampeners, weapon disruptors, shield boost amplifiers, shield rechargers, shield power relays, shield flux coils, and core defense field purgers are all banned for this event. You’ll also have to limit yourself to a maximum of one fitted local repair module across shields and armor. Additionally, modules, boosters or implants with a meta level higher than 5 are also prohibited.
