Exploit Notification – Generation Of Tech II BPOs From Destruction Of Citadels & Engineering Complexes

We have been made aware of a bug with Citadels and Engineering complexes that can cause the generation of Tech II Blueprint Originals upon their destruction.

This bug surfaced during the destruction of a Raitaru class Engineering Complex in the system of Perimeter early this morning, and was brought to our attention by a number of players.

We would like to inform the community that utilizing this bug to generate Tech II Blueprint Originals, along with the sale and/or use of Tech II Blueprint Originals generated by this bug, is hereby considered an exploit as of the timestamp of this news item and will be actioned as such.

Players in possession of these blueprints are hereby informed that the blueprints are being monitored while we work on deploying a fix for this issue, and are asked to leave the erroneous items in their hangars, as they will be converted to BPCs once a fix is applied.

The sale or use of these blueprints in any way shape or form will be actioned as an exploit under our suspension and ban policy.

Redeeming Issues With Day 1 Yoiul Festival Gifts

We have been made aware of an issue with redeeming the first day of this year’s Yoiul Festival gifts, where a number of players have experienced their gift crates disappearing after redeeming them via the character selection screen.

After being able to confirm this, we recommend that all players log in, select a character and allow it to load into EVE before they redeem their gifts, as this will avoid the potential for the gifts disappearing. 

We are currently working on a hotfix for this issue so that tomorrow’s gifts will redeem without issue.

If you have experienced this issue and your day one gifts have disappeared, there is no need to file a support ticket. These gifts will be issued retroactively in the near future.

If you’re unsure how to redeem gifts via the neocom, here’s a few handy steps to help out!

Click the “E” logo at the top of your Neocom:

This will open the Neocom menu, then you can navigate to the “Inventory” menu:

You’ll want to select “Redeem Items” from this menu:

This will bring up the “Redeem Items” window. You should see your gifts here.

Click the checkbox on the left side of each entry that you want to redeem, and click the “Redeem Selected Items” button:

Your items will now appear in your inventory in the station in which your character is located.

Exploit Notification – Farming Mini Skill Injectors

We would like to inform players that it is now considered an exploit to repeatedly acquire Mini Skill Injectors for any purpose other than for the use of a new character running through the New Player Experience released in Ascension.

It is further specifically an exploit to transfer this item to any other character from the new character acquiring the Mini Skill Injector in the first instance.

Farming and trading of this special purpose NPE item, whether for personal use, free transfer or sale, is an abuse of the NPE system and will be actioned as an exploit under our suspension and ban policy.
