The Fight Against Lag Continues This Saturday - EVE Online - MMORPG.com

CCP Games has announced the next testing dates for their "Mass-Testing" initiative, which is aimed squarely at helping eliminate or reduce lag during large gatherings, whether it be large scale ship battles or starbase sieges. The next scheduled test date is set for April 3rd at 20:00 GMT. The test will last 1 hour and will involve anywhere from 300 to 500+ pilots. The focus of the test will be on large scale fleet fights, starbase sieges, and Session changes.

Details below:

What exactly is being tested?

Fleet fight, Starbase siege & Session changes:

[Important note: We may end up using only 1 fleet if we don't get enough people to make 2 fleets]

  • Test will begin in Poitot

  • Players will be seperated into two fleets, X and W

  • First, Both fleets will jump, at the same time, into X-BV98- NO COMBAT will happen yet!

  • We will then move both fleets to F67E-Q

  • Fleet X will then jump through to MHC-R3 and setup a gate camp

  • Fleet W will then jump into Fleet X - short combat

  • We will then move to a pre-configured starbase (POS) in FD-MLJ; fleet X will attempt to defend the starbase while fleet W attacks it

  • We may end up changing the fleet setup slightly, depending on results of current lag-fixes on TQ
