The Final Timer of M-OEE8

Hello Capsuleers

Today is a historic occasion, as the first fully armed and operational Keepstar, the largest of Upwell Consortium’s line of Citadel class structures, enters its final reinforcement timer, exposing it to the possibility of being destroyed. This Keepstar, operated by Circle-Of-Two in the system of M-OEE8, has been under siege for two weeks now. Pilots from all over New Eden have come to do battle; some wish to defend the Keepstar, and some wish to see it fall, while others are just looking to cause destruction on either side. For more information, you should check out this video by The Scope Network:

If you’re not able to make it into the system yourself to watch it all go down, we will be streaming various view points from the battle itself today on our Twitch channel, starting at 18:00 UTC. We will also be hosting streams from the community that are commentating on the battle as it unfolds. Make sure to join us or one of the various community streamers to see whether the Keepstar stands or falls.
