We are happy to announce that the 119.5 release will be deployed during an extended downtime on May 9th, 2017.
The 119.5 release will bring a whole host of new features including the PLEX changes, Alliance Logos on Citadels, new models for the Pacifier and Enforcer, as well as the New Introduction Video that debuted at Fanfest 2017. This release will also include visual updates to suns in New Eden, as well as the first wave of new NPC AI in the form of Blood Raider Shipyards.
These new Blood Raider Installations also bring with them the opportunity to acquire new Blood Raider capital vessels, including the Molok class titan, Chemosh class dreadnought and the Dagon class force auxilary.
Downtime for the release of 119.5 will start at the regular time of 11:00 UTC, and will run for an extended time until conversion of all PLEX has been completed.
The Tranquility cluster should be online and accepting connections once this process is complete, and we will provide live updates on progress during downtime via the EVE Online Forums and the @EVE_Status twitter feed. Be sure to follow @EVE_Status for all the latest information on the status of the Tranquility cluster.
For more detailed information on what’s coming in the 119.5 release, please take a look at the full patch notes for 119.5 on the community website here.
Please be aware that as part of the release, the changes to PLEX will cause a temporary drop in a character’s total net worth if they possess PLEX, as average market value for this new type of PLEX will start at 0 ISK. This should automatically correct itself as soon as average market prices are available for the new PLEX type.
Please also be aware that PLEX stored in the PLEX Vault will not contribute to the total net worth of a character as this is stored on an account basis, rather than a per character basis. PLEX stored in hangars and cargoholds will still contribute to total net worth.
