CCP Games has released a new developer blog focusing on upcoming changes to its sci-fi MMO, EVE Online. The post explains some of the public events planned for the test servers as the developers get ready for the release of the Dominion update.
First Test:Click over to the link below for the dates and times of the tests.
EVE Online: Dominion Testing
There will be three tests. The first will be to test changes made to faction ships resulting from feedback we gained as a result of our last public test event. A wide array of faction ships will be provided and you will have an opportunity to give us your opinions on the changes. It is important to remember these changes are not final.
Also you may have heard rumors of changes to super capitals. These rumors are true. As detailed in CCP Abathurís latest devblog, we have changed some aspects of these massive ships. Supercapitals will be provided for you all to go mad and get a feeling for them. Your feedback will be collected and taken onboard, as the rebalance of super capitals is also subject to change.
"Thatís all well and good but I canít fly them." This is indeed an issue that will limit how many of you are able to test the changes. So, we have decided to give you all every skill at level 5.
This is strictly on the test server and is of itself not a regular occurrence. The elevated skills will only be in effect for the duration of the supercapital test, estimated to be a 48 hour period. I hope you can all find time to come along and give us your opinions on some of the features of Dominion.
As detailed in CCP Abathurís devblog and CCP Grayscale's devblog, changes are being made to how claiming and holding sovereignty works. These changes are also not finalized and the mechanics are not complete. So here is a brief overview of how the first test of sovereignty works.
Two alliances (Red and Blue) will be created on Singularity and players will be invited to join them and duke it out for control of a small area of space. Your opinions will be gathered on this part of the new sovereignty system and will be relayed to the team responsible.
