The new Abyssal Proving Grounds are now live!

2020-07-16 - By CCP Convict

Since Tuesday, pilots have been able to collect Proving Filaments for this first event from loot drops in Abyssal Deadspace and Triglavian Invasion systems. Now you can put them to good use!

As outlined in the dev blog introducing this new feature, the first event - which runs from now until July 28 - will allow for 2v2 tech 1 combat, attack and distruption cruiser match-ups. This means that permitted hulls are the Omen, Caracal, Thorax, Stabber, Maller, Moa, Vexor, Rupture, Arbitrator, Blackbird, Celestis and Bellicose.

The leaderboard feature we mentioned in the dev blog needs a little bit more work, so it won't be available in-game for the first few events. But fear not! We know that participants will be eager to track their progress in the Proving Grounds so in the interim, we will be posting updates of the current leaderboard regularly in this forum thread.

Also, from today and over the weekend, extra Proving Filaments for this event will be available as a daily log-in reward. So grab a friend and a couple of cruisers and glorify yourselves in the arena!
