Saturday afternoon saw a brutal slugfest occur over a Circle of Two Capital Ship Assembly Array in SH1-6P, in the northern region of Tribute.
Given the amazing amount of images that came from this fight, we decided to hold an impromptu screenshot contest via twitter, as announced once the battle had concluded.
We're now happy to announce a list of twitter users who have won PLEX after showing off their awesome images from the fight:
All players who are listed as having won prizes should contact CCP Falcon for verification via ingame EVEmail, using the character they'd like to have the PLEX redeemed to. Please use the subject line "#SH1_EVE" for your evemail!]]>

Preparations for EVE Vegas are now in full swing here at CCP Headquarters, and as we draw closer to the event, which takes place on October 28-30th at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, we're starting to solidify the schedule and confirm more speakers.
We're happy to announce two more developers who'll be in attendance from the Valkyrie team to talk a little about what's going on in the world of the Valkyries, and organize the EVE Valkyrie Tournament in Vegas.
In addition to this, we're delighted to announce our next player speakers, who will be covering community topics with presentations during the EVE Vegas festivities.
EVE Vegas 2016 takes place on October 28-30 this year at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. This is Halloween weekend in the United States, and as such we expect that Las Vegas will be pretty busy, which may cause increases in hotel prices and other services that are booked closer to the date.
If you're looking to attend EVE Vegas, we recommend that you book your accommodation and travel as soon as possible to avoid potentially higher prices closer to the dates of the event!
If you want to know more about EVE Vegas, feel free to check out the EVE Vegas Website, which will take you to the official EVE Vegas website, and if you haven't gotten hold of your tickets to the event yet, then what are you waiting for?
If you're still looking to pick up tickets for EVE Vegas 2016, you can head on over to the EVE Vegas Eventbrite page. Picking up tickets today also makes sure that you're included in the EVE Vegas 2016 Ticket Holder's Draw, with the chance to win upgrades to your EVE Vegas experience.
The next two names for the EVE Vegas 2016 Ticket Holder's Draw will be selected on Wednesday, August 17th, so be sure to grab tickets as soon as you can in order to be included in this round of the draw, and also because they're selling fast!
We're looking forward to seeing you all there!]]>

We have recently been made aware of a phishing scam that is currently targeting EVE Online players.
As can be seen from the image above, emails are being sent to members of the community that contain links that lead to a bogus version of the EVE Online Single Sign On page.
The mails are typically disguised as mails from Customer Support, Team Security or the Community Team, informing the recipient that a PLEX or character transfer has been completed, that a support response has been issued or a competition has been won.
Please be sure that you carefully check the URL of any sign on page asking for your account credentials thoroughly before signing in, and don't hesitate to contact Customer Support or Team Security should you feel that one or more of your EVE Online accounts may have been compromised.
At CCP we recognize the incredible amount of time and effort that EVE Players put into the development of their characters and corporations, and the security of your EVE Online accounts is of paramount importance.
Sadly, there are individuals out there who would seek to gain access to your characters and assets with nefarious intentions in mind. Please be sure to be extra vigilant and ensure that you are connecting to a legitimate CCP service before signing in!]]>

From the date and time of this message, using an ECM Burst to PVP flag a ship that is tethered to a citadel for the purposes of giving additional time to bump it out of tether range for destruction is considered an exploit, and will be dealt with as such.
This issue will be fixed with the 118.7 release on Tuesday, August 9th, 2016, however in the meantime it will remain an exploit to use the combination of ECM Bursts, bumping and the PVP timer in this manner.]]>

Here at CCP, we’ve been looking at many different ways to raise awareness of EVE Online and promote New Eden to a wider audience.
After the success we’ve seen over the course of the last couple of years with additional coverage of Fanfest and the amazing player gatherings that you all host, plus community focused marketing such as This is EVE, This is Fanfest and some of the amazing videos that have been put together by the community, we’d like to continue on the path of showcasing the creativity, ingenuity, diversity and dedication of our pilots.
In short, for our next campaign, we want YOU!
We’re looking for EVE players who want to take part in filming, where you’ll talk about your EVE experiences and stories. We’d like to hear more about your escapades over the years, and the shenanigans you’ve experienced as a part of what is by far the best and closest knit community in online gaming.
Those who want to take part may need to make an overnight stay in our filming locations, and of course any costs for travel and accommodation will of be covered by CCP for those who are selected to tell their stories, with a few in game goodies thrown in as a thank you for dedicating even more of your time to taking part.
At this time, we’re pretty flexible on the dates that we’ll be filming, so we’ll be looking to see what kind of suggestions for stories are submitted, and will arrange filming and locations with people on an individual basis.
If you’d like to take part in this project, here’s what we’ll need from you!
You’ll also need to include a brief “Video selfie”, no more than a few minutes where you can introduce yourself and talk about an EVE related story that has particular meaning to you, along with a little on how you’d describe EVE to a new player to encourage them to sign up and fly with you.
If you’d like to be considered to take part in this, we’ll need a submission from you before August 1st, 2016.
You can submit your details, along with your video by filling in this handy survey!
We're looking forward to hearing from you!]]>
