Here’s a friendly PSA. If you’ve been enjoying EVE Online’s Abyssal Proving Grounds event, it ends tomorrow.

If you haven’t taken part, don’t worry. You still have time. You’ll be able to hop in and take part in four-player Tech 1 Cruiser FFA combat. The hulls which are allowed for this event include Arbitrator, Bellicose, Blackbird, Caracal, Celestis, Maller, Moa, Omen, Rupture, Stabber, Thorax, and Vexor. Keep in mind that pirate implants are restricted.

In case you missed it, records continue to fall in EVE Online as World War Bee 2 rages on. The latest record saw over 13,000 pilots trying to enter the battle following the Massacre at M2-XFE. The system simply stopped functioning because of the insane numbers. This results in pilots losing ships, warp into the system without fittings, and more issues.

CCP commented,

“These numbers are unrivaled - and unrivaled numbers in New Eden lead to uncharted territories when it comes to performance. Neither side of the war, or CCP, can, could or will be able to predict the server performance in these kinds of situations."
