EVE Gate Shutdown – Wednesday September 27th

As part of our roadmap to overhaul the web presence of EVE Online, we’ve come to the decision to retire EVE Gate as we move to fully replace the forum and community engagement software that we use.

After the discovery of a critical issue with EVE Gate last week, we’ve decided to bring forward the retirement of EVE Gate to close a vulnerability, rather than invest further time on fixing the issue that could be better spent working to improve out websites in other areas.

On Wednesday (September 27th), EVE Gate will be retired.

This will of course mean that the web based EVEmail access that EVE Gate provides will also be retired on Wednesday, however we are investigating alternative solutions for providing EVEmail access outside the EVE Online client, as we’re aware of how important this access is to the Community.

As part of the retirement of EVE Gate, significant efforts have been put into ensuring that EVE Portal, the mobile app for EVE Online, will be a reliable alternative for out of game EVEmail access going forward.

We’re aware that some pilots have been experiencing issues using EVE Portal, and we hope that these issues have now been resolved so that character status and EVEmail is accessible on your mobile device.

In addition to this, in the coming months we’ll be speaking with the EVE Community and the Council of Stellar Management to prioritise expansion of EVE Portal into a wider ranging companion app for EVE Online, so stay tuned for further information.

If you'd like to discuss this announcement, please feel free to do so here!

Project Discovery Tutorial Video and AMA on r/science Thursday!

Want to know more about Project Discovery and how to contribute to real world science via EVE Online? Check out this newly released video and get to analyzing for in-game rewards and the feelsgoodman benefit of helping the scientific search for planets beyond our solar system!

Also, three members from the Project Discovery team exoplanets will be hosting an AMA (ask me anything) on /r/science tomorrow, Thursday 21st, beginning at 2pm UTC. Wayne Gould (astronomer at the Geneva Observatory), Attila Szantner (founder and CEO of Massively Multiplayer Online Science), and CCP’s Hjalti Leifsson will be on hand for a couple hours to answer questions about the search for exoplanets, the science behind it, integrating citizen science into video games, and the future of crowdsourcing science.

If you are one of the EVE players who have already submitted one of over 38.3 million player classifications of the CoRoT telescope’s light data (peaking at 88,000 per hour!!), you might want to check it out or ask some on-topic questions about Project Discovery-Exoplanets.

A reminder though, that while we're sure you want to know why your favorite ship isn’t getting buffed, EVE game design questions won’t be covered by this particular group.

Got Swag? Player Content For The EVE Vegas Welcome Pack!

EVE Vegas is so close that over here in Iceland we can already feel the warm Nevada air and taste the delicious drinks!

At EVE Vegas 2017, we’re looking to involve our players more than ever before. We’ve got some kick ass player presented content lined up for this year, and we’re looking at more and more ways that you guys can show off your allegiances and raise awareness of your identities in game.

As part of this, we’re opening the EVE Vegas Welcome pack this year so that alongside goodies from CCP, Alliances and Corporations can pitch in stickers, posters, merchandise, patches, pins, whatever you guys want (within reason!), to raise awareness of your alliance.

If you’d like to drop items like this into the welcome pack, all you need to do is bring them to Vegas and catch up with our volunteers on site before we prepare the welcome packs.

We’ll be preparing 1200 welcome packs for EVE Vegas this year, so that’s the number to keep in mind, if for instance, you want to put one sticker or one pin in every welcome pack.

To get in touch with our volunteers and organize including your stuff in the welcome pack, you can join the EVE Vegas volunteers discord by clicking this link.

You can contact GreyGal, or any of the other volunteers to work on getting your stuff included in the welcome pack.

 

Please be aware that CCP reserves the right to decline anything that may be deemed offensive or otherwise inappropriate for inclusion in the welcome pack.
