Empires at War

The new Frontlines feature in Factional Warfare (FW) is now live, drawing pilots closer to the borders of their opponents and presenting new rewarding challenges that focus capsuleer efforts towards key, emerging conflicts where empire history will be written!

Frontlines

Systems in a FW warzone can have different operational states which are designated as follows:

Frontline - adjacent to an enemy-controlled star system, the absolute heart of the battle, and the highest level of reward.

Command Operations - adjacent to a Frontline system, vital for strategic supremacy with standard LP rewards.

Rearguard - when none of the above apply, a relative safe zone in the maelstrom.

Frontlines Map

With this update we are adding a new way to visualize the Warzone. With representation of where you can find the frontlines and clear data showing the status of contested systems.

Suprise attack!

The map isn't the only thing that will be changing in the Warzone! The Gallente have launched a massive surprise assault on Intaki and its surrounding systems.

The systems of:

  • Intaki
  • Vey
  • Brarel
  • Annancale
  • Agoze
  • Ostingele
  • Harroule
  • Dastryns
  • Uphallant
  • Iges
  • Covryn

are now held by the Gallente and have been removed from the Factional Warfare system.

Advantage System

The new Advantage system allows you to give your chosen faction an edge in FW. This edge can be achieved by obtaining a terrain advantage through ownership of adjacent Frontline and Command Operations star systems, through the completion of activities and sites in the FW warzone, and by deploying anchorable structures. The more involved and victorious your faction is in the warzone, the greater the effect will be on your side’s victory points.

To view a system’s current Advantage, you can navigate to the right-hand side of the FW window when you select a system on the FW map.

Propaganda Billboard

  • A deployable structure that will serve to demoralize your opposing faction, upon completion of the structure, Advantage will be added to aid you in capturing of their system.

Listening Outposts

  • A deployable structure used to crack transmission frequencies that once completed will remove advantage from the opposing faction.

Supply Cache/Depot

  • In-space quick supply depots for the opposing faction that if destroyed will remove advantage from the opposing faction.

Rendezvous Point

  • Soloable Rendezvous points allow players to engage with the warzone by intercepting NPC combatants. Upon destroying the commander of the fleet, Advantage will be awarded.

Operation Center

  • Hacking/Exploration site that will provide the players with valuable codes to build Propaganda Billboards and Listening Outposts.

Reward Rebalance

We have increased the amount of Loyalty Points awarded, specifically focused on Frontlines having the largest pay outs to encourage players to engage in a more concentrated area of the warzone.

  • Frontline systems grant 150% of generated Loyalty Points as rewards.
  • Command Operations systems grant 100% of generated Loyalty Points as rewards.
  • Rearguard Systems grant 50% of generated Loyalty Points as rewards.

We have removed the reward tiers for FW captured systems to make the generation of LP fairer for everyone, and remove the positive feedback loop that was incentivizing Empire swapping.

Adding More Group Content

In the current paradigm, Factional Warfare complexes discourage group play as the payout for additional militia members in a site divides the reward pool, which is inelastic. By adding elastic rewards, up to a certain limit for certain sites we can create a space where players are naturally drawn to group up with other friendly players.

We also want to avoid encouraging super-sized 'swarm' fleets, and so we can tune these Complex rewards to around 5 characters. 5 characters is also a decent number because it is a difficult number of accounts to manage for a single player, limiting the effectiveness of such multiboxing in combat to encourage players enter these sites and act as a group when available, the LP value would be an additional 25% over the 'solo' version of the complex.

Not all ships are equal Victory Points!

We have limited access to FW Complexes to make them more granular, tweaking the paradigm to prevent pirate faction ships from dominating "Novice Complexes". We have also reviewed and updated the access restrictions to complexes overall.

When it comes to determining Victory Points gained for ship destruction Pirate and Navy faction ships will be treated as separate classes. For example, a worm will not be considered T1. Triglavian and EDENCOM ships will also be included in the "Pirate Faction" category, as it most closely matches their power scaling. For example, a Leshak will yield a higher reward value than a Tempest.

Site Naming Schema

We need to effectively communicate expectations; the site names should follow a predictable pattern in which you can learn to rapidly identify the restrictions of a site based on its name. The standard is as follows:

[Rank / Size] + [ADV / NVY] + "-"[Number] OR [Open Complex]

Rank / Size - Indicates the size of ships allowed into the site.

Example: Amarr Medium NVY-5

  • Scout - Frigates and smaller
  • Small - Destroyers and smaller
  • Medium - Cruisers and smaller
  • Large - Battleships and smaller
  • NVY - Short for "Navy". Indicates site only allows T1 and Navy ships to enter, no pirate faction, T2, or T3.
  • ADV - Short for "Advanced". Indicates site allows T2 and Pirate Faction ships.
  • Number - This number indicates the number of characters the site reward scales to.
  • Open Complex - This is an open site, A site without restrictions or an acceleration gate

Update to Upwell Structures Docking Rules in Factional Warfare

Structures broke the paradigm of risk for factional warfare systems, as previously only the controllers of the system were able to take advantage of the stations. With Citadels, enemy militia could previously safely dock up in enemy space. We are solving this with these new measures.

The following rules apply to both stations and player-owned citadels in the warzone.

Frontline Systems

  • Players are able to dock, undock and tether in any ship regardless of faction alignment.
  • Assuming they would have access to dock / tether via ACLs for player owned structures.

Command Operations & Rearguard

  • Enemy militia cannot tether except in capsules.
  • Enemy militia cannot dock except in capsules.
  • Enemy militia cannot undock from the structure - except for capsules.
  • Friendly militia and unaligned players can dock and tether freely.

Events

To Celebrate the launch of Uprising a special set of login rewards are available each day that players log into the game for the first 9 days after the expansion launches. These rewards include up to 425,000 SP for Omega players, and SKINs for navy frigates and the new navy battlecruisers!




New Navy Ships

We have introduced new Navy ship lines into the game as part of the expansion. Navy Exploration Frigates, Navy Battlecruisers, Navy Destroyers and Navy Dreadnaughts.

All these ships come with a strict upgrade to the tech 1 counterpart as well as some new improved audio. In addition, the New Navy Destroyers and Dreadnaughts have upgraded hulls to stand out on the battlefield.

The Navy Frigates and Battlecruisers became available in limited quantities during the pre-expansion events. Their details can be found in their patch notes.

  3. Not nerf HACs into oblivion - find and retain healthy use-cases.

  • Purchased emblems are not tradeable and are immediately injected into the redeeming character.
  • A new Personalization tab on the fitting window will allow you to equip both emblems and ship SKINs.

Security Status Changes

In this update we are adding the first part of the changes as described extensively in a Dev blog for these changes.

  • Outlaws which are characters with -5.0 and lower security status are no longer permitted to dock in High Security stations and structures while in ships.
  • Alpha clone state characters can no longer change their safety setting to Red.
  • It is no longer possible to run any Abyssal sites in 1.0 or 0.9 security spaces, including Jita or any of the other trade hubs.

Abyssal Deadspace Changes

Suspect flags returns for high-tier Abyssal Deadspace sites based on security of the system which the site is being run in. You will gain suspect status upon completing the Abyssal Deadspace site.

Wormholes

  • Frigate wormhole lifetimes reduced from 16 hours to 4.5 hours for E004, L005, Z006, M001, C008, G008 and Q003 type wormholes
    • Spawn rate for roaming wormholes of these types was also reduced to prevent them from appearing too frequently.



Upwell Structure Hangar visuals

We have added massive enhancements to Upwell hangars that will ramp up the audio and visual immersion while docked in these structures.

This also includes a new docking and undocking animation that takes the same amount of time to perform as it did prior to this update.

  • Cancelling undocking will sometimes make your ship perform a 360 and park in the same spot you took off from. A new way to ship spin, for the absolute best.

Graphics

AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution 1.0 is now supported in EVE. This can be very beneficial on higher resolution screens like those that run on 4K, or when used with an older GPU.

  • This gives an increase in frame rate by upscaling a lower resolution version of the game, while preserving as much detail as possible.
  • It can be found in the settings menu inside 'Display & Graphics' → 'Graphic Content Settings' → AMD FSR 1.0.
  • It works on AMD, Nvidia, Intel and Apple M1 based graphics cards.

A new 'Ambient Occlusion' setting has been added to graphic settings page, as we now calculate “AO” in real time.

  • Having it enabled Improves shading and rendering techniques which increase the visual impact of all graphical assets.
  • Setting this too high on older graphics cards can have a significant impact on performance.

We have also made visual updates to a few selected ships:

  • The Phoenix has received a visual update.
  • All Tech 1 and Tech 2 variants of Destroyers have received a visual update.
  • We have added a new Amarr Navy pattern.

Audio

  • Beam

  • Pulse

  • Blaster

  • Railgun

  • Artillery

  • Auto Cannon

  • Uprising comes with all new login music.
