CRITICAL • Joining a Fleet with a player who is currently involved in a war will no longer make you a valid target in that war. CONCORD will now respond if a player who is not involved in a war is aggressed within a gang in High Security space. • All Navy NPC’s have had their capabilities significantly increased and their damage output should now be significantly higher than before. • The Omen Navy Issue cruiser has been created and replaces the old Augoror Navy Issue as the Tier II Amarr faction cruiser. The Augoror Navy Issue is reintroduced as the Tier I Amarr faction cruiser and will be available on Amarr NPC corporation LP stores. FEATURES World Shaping • Black Rise, a new mainly lowsec region between Caldari and Gallente space has been added with approximately 60 systems. • Four new Non Player Corporations have been added to allow Factional Warfare: o 24th Imperial Crusade (Amarr Empire) o Federation Defense Union (Gallente Federation) o State Protectorate (Caldari State) o Tribal Liberation Force (Minmatar Republic) • A limited number of new stations have been added to the Black Rise region. These stations mostly belong to Caldari military organizations. In addition there will be multiple stations added throughout New Eden to service the four faction Militias. • Jumps have been added into Black Rise from the following systems: o Aldranette (Placid 0.4) o Manjonakko (The Citadel 0.3) o Ohbochi (Lonetrek 0.4) o Tama (The Citadel 0.3) o Oicx (Placid 0.3) o Karjataimon (Lonetrek 0.3) o Piak (Lonetrek 0.7) o Abune (Essence 0.3) o W-4NUU (Cloud Ring 0.0) • Some jumps have been removed: o Aldranette <> Manjonakko o Ohbochi <> Oicx • Elsewhere in New Eden some other additional jumps have been added: o The Bleak Lands New Jump - Anka <> Tannakan o Lonetrek New Jump - Haajinen to Elanoda o The Citadel New jump - Nagamanen <> Deven (Essence region) o Essence New jump - Heydieles <> Old Man Star o Placid New jump - Anchauttes <> Odamia o Metropolis New Jump - Hagilur <> Thelan (Sinq Laison Region) New Jump - Todifrauan <> Akkio (The Forge Region) Ships • The since-long missing 6th Amarr frigate, the Magnate, has been released. It is specialized in astrometry and survey operations. • The looping references of Iteron and Iteron Mark II have been corrected. • Augoror Navy Issue cruiser has been modified. The Navy-issued version of the Augoror cruiser is an extremely resilient piece of hardware able to provide very good support in fleet battles, but it is also a relatively nimble cruiser ideally suited for escort duties as well as smaller skirmishes. Created to fill a void within the ranks of the traditionally slow and lumbering Amarrian fleet, this vessel has fit in perfectly. Special ability: 10% bonus to Medium Energy Turret Capacitor Usage and 10% bonus to Armor Hit points per level. o Slots: 5/3/7 o Turret hard points: 5 o Launcher slots: 0 o Fitting: 310tf, 885mw o Drones: 15/15 • Osprey Navy Issue cruiser has been added. Caldari ships have never been renowned for their speed. With this in mind, Caldari Navy engineers set about designing the Osprey Navy Issue. The fastest Caldari cruiser in existence and a formidable missile boat, this vessel gives Navy personnel and State loyalists alike greater opportunities to conduct true skirmish warfare than ever before. Special Ability: 5% bonus to Assault, Heavy Assault and Heavy Missile Launcher rate of fire and 10% bonus to Heavy Assault and Heavy Missile velocity per level. o Slots: 4/5/3 o Turret hard points: 2 o Launcher slots: 4 o Fitting: 365tf, 540mw o Drones: 10/10 • Exequror Navy Issue cruiser has been added. The Exequror Navy Issue was commissioned by Federation Navy High Command in response to the proliferation of close-range blaster vessels on the modern stellar battlefield. While it doesn't boast the speed of some of its class counterparts, this up- close-and-personal gunboat nonetheless possesses some of the more advanced hybrid plasma-coil compression subsystems available, making it a lethal adversary in any upfront engagement. Special Ability: 5% bonus to Medium Hybrid Turret damage per level and 5% bonus to Medium Hybrid Turret rate of fire per level. o Slots: 4/3/5 o Turret hard points: 4 o Launcher slots: 0 o Fitting: 280tf, 760mw o Drones: 20/20 • Scythe Fleet Issue cruiser has been added. The Scythe Fleet Issue is a throwback to earlier days of Minmatar ship design, when the scarcity of resources meant that a single ship needed to be able to do almost everything. While often dubbed a "mini-Typhoon" for this reason, this versatile gunboat nonetheless has nowhere near the defensive capabilities of its larger ancestor. What it does bring to the table, however, is unparalleled agility and unpredictability. A squadron of these ships can be an immense thorn in the side of even the most able and well-equipped fleet commander. Special Ability: 5% bonus to Medium Projectile Turret rate of fire and 5% bonus to Assault, Heavy Assault and Heavy Missile Launcher rate of fire per level. o Slots: 6/4/3 o Turret hard points: 3 o Launcher slots: 3 o Fitting: 275tf, 745mw o Drones: 25/25 • Omen Navy Issue cruiser has been created and will replace all current Augoror Navy Issue models. The Omen Navy Issue was originally conceived as a multipurpose search and rescue vessel with strong combat capabilities. In response to the increasing need for ships capable of countering frigate swarms, its designers additionally included a drone bay intended to give the ship a greater range of options when faced with mixed enemy squadrons. The end result is a somewhat more flexible offering than Amarr design philosophy generally dictates, but don't be fooled: this crusher still packs all the punch one would expect from a ship of the golden fleet. Special Ability: 10% bonus to Medium Energy Turret capacitor use per level and 7.5% bonus to Medium Energy Turret rate of fire per level. o Slots: 6/3/7 o Turret hard points: 5 o Launcher slots: 0 o Fitting: 335tf, 960mw o Drones: 25/25 Modules • A proper description has been added to ECM burst modules to specify they only receives ECM Target Jammer Strength bonuses from battleships. • The Miner II, Iteron Mark II and “Spiegel” Reflective Plating I items would incorrectly list themselves as their own variations. This has been fixed Player Owned Structures, Outposts and Stations • The Caretaker role now allows the player to empty silos. NPC’s • You can sign up for Factional Warfare on behalf of the four main Empires - Amarr, Caldari, Gallente and Minmatar. This has to be done by docking in the respective station of your Faction and pressing the new Militia Office station services button. • It will not be possible for an individual pilot to sign up to a Militia if he or she is attempting to do so in a station located in enemy space. Example: it will not be possible to sign up for the Tribal Liberation Force if you are in a Minmatar station located in Amarr space. This restriction does not apply to player Corporations • Loyalty Point Stores have been added for each Militia. Initially these stores will provide the same items as the corresponding Navy or Fleet i.e. 24th Imperial Crusade will offer the same items as an Amarr Navy store. • The Militia Office station services button has been added to stations affiliated with Militias. This button will now list information such as: o Factional News. o A Factional header. o Personal info on the character, including rank and name. o A button to retire from Factional Warfare. o A pane where one can scroll through different statistics for oneself, one's Corporation and one's Faction. o Lists of interesting solar systems. • Player visible statistics will now be shown for o Amount of characters in each Faction Militia o Amount of characters in player Corporations in each Faction Militia o Total kills per character, Corporation and Faction. Kills only count where a Factional Warfare flagged character is the victim. • Navy NPC’s have had their abilities significantly increased. The damage output from Navy ships is now considerably higher than before. • Upon sign up pilots will be able to review their own, corporation and faction statistics in the Factional Warfare service “Battlefield Intelligence” page • Firing upon a friendly Militia NPC will be met with retaliation. • On top of gaining a Global Criminal Flag (meaning CONCORD intervention in high- security space, sentry guns retaliating and security status loss), firing upon other players within the same militia will incur a standings penalty to the respective empire faction when a hostile act occurs within high and low Security systems. Firing on a player within the same Militia in 0.0 will have no standings affect. Shooting other players within your own player made Corporation while that Corporation is part of a Militia will not result in a global criminal flag. • Players enlisted into Factional Warfare will be aggressed by Navy NPC’s when entering High-security space belonging to both enemy factions (example: a pilot enlisted to the Federal Defense Union, the Gallente Federation Militia will be shot in both Amarr and Caldari space). • 10 new Ranks have been introduced for each faction. Enlisted players will earn Ranks according to their standings with their Militia. Standing modifications will result in rank promotion or demotion (social skills are not counted). If retired from a Militia, player ranks will not be publicly displayed even if still viewable in the character sheet. • Every time you gain a new rank, the old rank is removed and the new one added. If this is the first time you achieve that rank you are awarded a Factional standings increase with all derived benefits and penalties. • The following areas are now designed as Combat Zones: Devoid, The Bleak Lands, The Citadel, Black Rise, Essence, Verge Vendor, Placid, Heimatar and Metropolis.

These missions will be offered by new Militia Agents and only available to enlisted players. No Storyline missions will be offered in Factional Warfare. • Acceleration gates for Factional Warfare missions will have restrictions on ship types. These will vary depending on the mission difficulty. Exploration & Deadspace • Combat Dungeons have been added to Combat Zones and will be shown through the use of existing exploration mechanics. Such sites may be found using scanner probes or the onboard scanner. Claiming these Factional Warfare Dungeons for your own or allied faction will contribute in capturing the system Occupancy. Corporation & Alliance • CEOs and directors of player Corporations can sign-up their entire corporation for Factional Warfare by using the “Enlist my Corp” option in the Navy Office. The corporation joining process will be completed after the next daily Downtime. Corporations who are part of an Alliance or have an active Alliance application will be unable to use this service. User Interface • New Factional Warfare map modes have been added to the Star Map Control Panel. This map mode will show Militia faction occupancy, enemy factions, the pilots faction and locations where enemy factions have scored Victory Points recently. • The option to “Align to” a celestial object has been added and replaces “Approach” when that object is not on the same grid. EVE Voice, Mail & Chat • A new channel is created for each Faction Militia which acts like an “Alliance” channel. It appears by default for anyone in a Factional Warfare flagged Corporation. It can, unlike normal Alliance channels, be closed and re-opened through the channels window. Non-flagged players cannot gain access to this channel • Players enlisted into Factional Warfare may receive role-playing and military mails sent from their faction entity.
