October Release Deployment Information!

2018-10-05 - By CCP Falcon

We're happy to announce that the October release will be deployed during a standard duration daily downtime on Tuesday, October 9th.

Daily downtime will begin at the usual time of 11:00 UTC, and will run for the normal time of 15 minutes. We anticipate that Tranquility will be back online and accepting connections by 11:15 UTC.

The October release brings a host of light balance changes, including tweaks to the Damavik based on community feedback, as well as changes to nullification on combat interceptors, and the introduction of the new Zero-Point mass entangler module.

In addition to this, the October release brings a number of visual fixes and improvements, as well as some changes that should increase performance, including the removal of area of effect damage when a titan class hull is destroyed.

This release also brings substantial changes to ECM mechanics that will allow for more varied counter play and retaliation against pilots using ECM.
