Battleship brawl in the Proving Grounds

2022-02-24 - By EVE Online Team

Dueling Capsuleers!

The 50th Abyssal Proving Grounds event is nearly upon us! To celebrate this milestone, you’ll be able to get stuck into a classic 1v1 battleship brawl for 48 hours, from 26-28 February. What better way to celebrate Friendship Week, after all!

As with all Proving Grounds, you can expect a few twists to keep you on your toes when it comes to fitting your ships!

All Tech I battleships qualify for the encounter, but the following items are banned:

  • Sensor Dampeners
  • Weapon Disruptors
  • Shield Boost Amplifiers
  • Shield Rechargers
  • Shield Power Relays
  • Shield Flux Coils
  • Core Defense Field Purger Rigs
  • Core Defense Capacitor Safeguard Rigs
  • Core Defense Operational Solidifier Rigs
  • Auxiliary Nano Pump Rigs
  • Nanobot Accelerator Rigs

In addition, modules are limited to Meta 5, and Tech II rigs are also banned. Ships can only fit a maximum of one Local Repair Module (Shield or Armor).

While in the arena you’ll also enjoy a 100% bonus to all overheating benefits, with the exception of EWAR.

Get your thinking caps on, polish your ship fits, and get ready to go one on one for leaderboard glory!
