Join the Proving Grounds frigate frenzy!

2022-03-16 - By EVE online Team

Calling all Capsuleers,

The time has come to get ready for the next round of action at the Abyssal Proving Grounds, with a 2v2 Frigate Frenzy kicking off on 18 March. Excitement and drama are assured!

This event will feature team-based frigate combat, and has been shaped to welcome Capsuleers of any and all skill levels, bringing together veteran and new pilots, as well as anyone in between.

The Proving Ground will run until 22 March and will allow use of one of the following ships per team: Punisher, Tormentor, Merlin, Kestrel, Incursus, Tristan, Rifter, Breacher, Executioner, Condor, Atron, and Slasher.

The make the event even more enticing for brand new players, module choices for the event are limited to Meta 0 base modules only. That means You can take a Warp Scrambler I, but not an Initiated Compact Warp Scrambler, for example.

As with other recent events, additional restrictions and buffs will be in place to spice up the meta: Sensor dampeners, shield rechargers, shield power relays, shield flux coils, and core defence field purgers are banned.

Ships entering this Proving Ground may have a maximum of one local repair module fitted (shield or armor).

The following arena effects are in place for the event: +25% Turret damage and tracking speed +50% Shield, Armor, and Hull HP

To join this round of frigate-focussed Abyssal Proving Grounds action, grab those Proving Filaments and head to the Proving Grounds between 18 and 22 March, starting 11:00 UTC. As ever, the Proving Grounds leaderboards will allow you to track Capsuleer performance throughout this approachable team-based event.
