Community Beat for 31 March

2023-03-31 - EVE Online Community Team

Greetings Spacefriends,

We have several things we'd like to highlight this time around. Let's get to it!


Starting off with some art that caught our eyes. Allie Po posted a watercolor painting of an Astero over on Twitter. It looks fantastic! Keep it up.

Then from the same artist, a portrait of Zorya Triglav.

Continuing with YouTube Shorts, here's a short clip from zehPando's first Chemoloki run in EVE History (older footage, but new to YouTube Shorts):

EVE Tradition – The Cyno Vigil

We are always saddened to hear of the passing of members in our community.

Recently, we received the devastating news that we lost both NeedsToBeReal - a known Lowsec Black Rise pilot, and HateLesS - an Eve Online Partner, Youtuber and Twitch Streamer.

Eyes forward, Capsuleer, the cyno is not yet lit.
Consider your modules, your rigs and ammo before you undock, for the cyno is not yet lit.
Break free of the station and witness the universe before you, for the cyno is not yet lit.
Set your ship to fly through the vastness while you wait, for the cyno is not yet lit.
Pay attention, Capsuleer, for those who have gone before you call for you to join them.
The cyno is now lit.

EVE Online is nearly 20 years old, and over the years the community has created many in-game customs and traditions. One of the most somber is the "Cyno Vigil" – a gathering of players lighting cynosural field generators in unison to celebrate the life of players who have passed away.

There is a FFA "Fight Vigil" for NeedsToBeReal planned Sunday, April 2nd at 17:00 EVE Time in Tama, details on the event can be found on Reddit.

When the news broke about the community losing HateLesS, players started flocking to the "Slow Stream" that was underway on the CCP Twitch Channel - where for the rest of the stream, it focused on Molea, the system with EVE Online's Graveyard Monument. For those interested, here is a recording of that VOD.

Unexpected loss is hard to endure, but watching friends, and even in-game adversaries come together to celebrate the life of someone who we shared a universe with is always humbling. It's a testament to the bonds we build in the game, and how those extend into the real world. All our friends we've lost, will always be part of our history, our world, and our thoughts.
