The Scope – Operation Frostline continues

CCP released another part of The Scope series to cover Operation Frostline. It looks like it is another success for CCP.

Alton Haveri reports that attacks against the Serpentis continues. Sadly myself only managed to find 3 of the new Operation Frostline anomalies. So it looks like everyone else is very busy doing them. Enjoy the latest video.

Operation Frostline – First look

Operation Frostline was released 2 days ago and we are already at v1.2 so CCP is busy fixing stuff. During that they released yet another video from The Scope. Mordu’s Legion Commander Tsuni Aina starts Operation Frostline officially and the hunt for the Serpentis is open.
Check your Overview for the new beacons called “Operation Frostline Target”. I had the chance to check a handful of them and the loot seems to be very genetic at least for a start.

But CCP did already announce that the loot will change over time. So don’t be worried about loot and continue killing every Serpentis pirate you can find. I hope that this events will continue because I find them quite nice. Especially when they are tied to some backstory.
Before I present you some more Screenshots from my adventures check out the latest video from The Scope.

Since everyone should be back now let’s get back to Operation Frostline. In the first room will wait some Serpentis frigates. They are no real threat to any real ship but if you are a newbie stay on alert. Every other player should be really fine. I did use my trusted Ishtar and they just alphaed them off the field. I have reports of destroyer also working very nicely against them. It looks to me that the goal of CCP is not to create some super enemy like the drifters and that they want as many people as they can to be able to participate in Operation Frostline. At least something that I can give them lots of credit for. Good work CCP.

And has a closing point for today’s post I present you some Screenshots that I took. Have fun during Operation Frostline and enjoy the changing loot. So make sure you keep up the pressure at the Serpentis.

Amarr Championships now on Youtube

CCP released all 3 days of the Amarr Championships on Youtube. The intro is very well made and the event itself includes some nice battles. So if you like to see some nice arena battles take a look. But please be aware that the whole championship is over 10 hours long.

Here is the first video. You can see an overview of all 18 matches in the info of the youtube video. So if you search for a special match take a look at the time stamps.

Day 1 of 3

Day 2 of 3

Day 3 of 3

I hope you enjoy some of the 33 matches that are covered so far.

The Scope – Amarr no longer at war and Championships begin

I think I missed this one at the beginning of november. So better late than never.

Alton Haveri reports that the Imperial Navy is no longer “At War” and the Threat level has been downgraded to “High Alert”. Why this has happened is beyond me because the Imperial Navy didn’t have a single victory against the Blood Raider or the Drifters. But it is CCPs backstory so let’s see how this is going. Enjoy this video from The Scope.

Operation Frostline is now live

CCP released their latest expansion that bring us Operation Frostline. You can find details about this new event which will run into Januar 2016 here.
The general feedback thread is here and the issue thread can be found here. The issue thread is already filled with bugs.

  • The new shiny T2 logi frigates are in the game but the skillbooks to fly them are not seeded
  • Docking and undocking seems to break the camera
  • BPO for the new Ice Mining Laser are not seeded

But maybe the biggest issues are still around the grid size change. You can find all the details about it in the new dev blog that was released today.
CCP did change some acceleration gates to be farther away to counter this. But apparently this change was not tested enough because in some systems you can now see POSes from the undock of stations etc…. I can understand that this is an important change and lay the foundation for the booster change later. But I get the feeling that this is another untested change and that no one at CCP has an idea about the whole impact of it. The grid size was so small for 12 years for reasons and the actual change is pretty huge.

You can find the whole patch notes here. But for now enjoy Operation Frostline and please give CCP feedback if you find any issues or have general feedback.

The Scope – ORE confirms blueprint theft

Alton Haveri reports that a massive theft of ORE assets have taken place. Under the stolen BPOs where the new ice mining frigate called “Endurance” and the new frigate class ice mining laser. TMC does cover this a bit more indeep so I just link it.
ORE has also joined the Upwell Consortium. What is behind this move is beyond my knowledge but we will see.

The Endurance will be released later today in the latest release called Parallax. TMC covers this here and official CCP patch notes are here.

The Scope – Mordu’s Legion attack ORE stations

Lina Ambre reports massive Mordu’s Legion attacks on multiple ORE stations. It looks like they gained control of the stations without much resistance.
CCP keeps pushing the Backstory further with more videos. Mordu’s are getting stronger and stronger and the former established entities continue to lose their grip of the universe. But for now enjoy this new video.

The Scope – new Command Destroyer incoming

CCP released another part of The Scope series. Within CCP introduced the new Command Destroyer class. But they announced not only the Ship. With this new class they also bring in the new Micro Jump Field Generator module. It creates a 6km field and transport everything 100km with it. It also impacts bombs…. so some new combat tactics might emerge from this. But please take a look for yourself. You can find more details in this dev post from CCP Rise.

Parallax now live

Today CCP released their newest Update called Parallax. You can find the patch notes here and the feedback thread is here. There is also an issue thread with some minor bugs. Nothing major just some smaller bugs here and there. The new scanning interface seems to not work properly sometimes and with brain in a box CCP managed to break the skill queue window. Given what a major rewrite of one of the biggest core systems it is it looks ok. I had expect some major bugs or even extended DTs. But let’s wait how the next hours go. But for now it looks really good. I am looking forward for the first fleet fights and IF brain in a box really improves it.
You can find more information about brain in a box in the mass test thread here.

For now have fun and update your client so you are ready when something happens.
