This week on CCPTV:
7 Jun - 19:00 UTC – PERMABAND ACOUSTIC With CCP Hunter.
Permaband's veteran member, the one and only CCP Hunter, has prepared acoustic versions of Permaband's catalog of tunes for your pleasure and will perform for you straight from his living room. He might even throw in a few of his own tracks. Crack open a cold one or heat up some tea, the choice is yours, Capsuleers. Not to be missed.
10 Jun – 19:00 UTC – CCPTV'S TECHSTRAVAGANZA.
It's all tech, all the time with 5(!!!) of CCP's most hardcore technology nerds.

12 Jun – 19:00 UTC – CSM15 VOTING RESULTS
The votes are in! CCP Dopamine and CCP Aurora will reveal the 10 EVE Online players who will become New Eden's delegates live on CCPTV. The results will shock you.Tune in to CCPTV on Twitch.tv/CCP and don't forget to follow so that you never miss an important update (or a non-important but very chill and nice stream).
The Gathering Storm and Lightning Strikes events are imminent! With them come a series of daily login rewards, an in-game event, as well as three thrilling new EDENCOM ships featuring electrifying new Upwell technology. The excitement will begin on 9 June at 11:00 UTC with the Gathering Storm daily login rewards which end at 11:00 UTC on 15 June, leading straight into Lightning Strikes. Read on for more details.
You will receive free rewards during the Gathering Storm event for logging in to EVE Online daily between 11:00 UTC on 9 June and 11:00 UTC on 15 June. Building anticipation and helping you to prepare for the new upcoming EDENCOM ships featuring Upwell technology, the Gathering Storm login rewards will include thousands of Skill Points and Booster Gift Boxes. Capsuleers in Omega Clone State will get those rewards, as well as the skills necessary for piloting the new EDENCOM ships and their brand new Arcing Vorton Projector weapons!
You will need to log in on at least 5 days throughout the Gathering Storm event in order to get all the rewards.
To coincide with the end of Gathering Storm and the release of the new EDENCOM ship line, the Lightning Strikes event will run from 11:00 UTC on 15 June to 11:00 UTC on 29 June.
With secret Upwell Covert Research Facilities in lowsec and parts of nullsec having come under attack and been destroyed by Rogue Drones, Capsuleers can enter the sites and face off against the Rogue Drones, looting the Upwell tech from the wreckage.
In addition, each event site offers the chance of spawning a rare escalation that can be investigated for additional rewards.
Rewards include manufacturing and invention materials, Skill Books, and more related to the new EDENCOM ship line.
The Gathering Storm and Lightning Strikes events provide the perfect launch for EDENCOM's new line of ships, built exclusively for them by Upwell to aid in the fight against the Triglavian Collective.
The new EDENCOM Skybreaker (Frigate), Stormbringer (Cruiser) and Thunderchild (Battleship) will belong to their own EDENCOM ship tree and be equipped to carry a brand new ship weapon called the Arcing Vorton Projector, based on Upwell's technology for the chain lightning-style superweapon found on Keepstar structures.
Make sure to log in daily and stock up on Skill Points, as well as getting a head start on training the necessary skills to pilot these awesome new ships, and wield their fearsome new weapons!
CCP Hunter has been one of the mainstays of Permaband, CCP's in-house rock band, since its formation. He‘s known as "that guy that can actually sing“ and "that guitarist that can actually play“. CCP Hunter has graced countless event stages throughout the years and performed for throngs of people, and this Sunday evening he‘ll grace his living room as he plays his own acoustic renditions of Permaband's greatest tunes. He may even sprinkle in a few of his own solo songs from his forthcoming album.
Make sure you don't miss this very special stream!
The Clear Vision update to EVE Online is now live, featuring big graphical improvements to a number of key elements across New Eden! These changes are part of the ongoing mission to continue pushing the boundaries of immersion and the stunning visuals of EVE.
Eagle-eyed Capsuleers may have noticed gradual changes, improvements and additions to the main Jita IV station over the last few months as work began on its major redesign, celebrating the largest trade hub in New Eden. The Clear Vision update brings further steps in the redesign of nearby structures, with the completion of the Jita IV Communication/Science station and significant progress on the Mining Center.
So, next time you travel to Jita in order to carry out your trading activities, be sure to check out the continuing improvements!
Note: The new jump animation has been temporarily reverted. We will do more work on the feature to address concerns about the jump cloak timer starting before the animation has completed.
A further visual improvement that comes as part of the Clear Vision update is a new graphical effect for travel between certain types of location in New Eden. This new animation for jump tunnels applies to K-Space jumps through stargates, Abyssal Deadspace jumps, Cyno jumps, and Black Ops Cyno jumps.
It is worth noting that you will now see your ship moving through these tunnels, with an extremely smooth camera entry mechanic. The color of the tunnels will also vary depending on the security and type of destination.
In addition, the Clear Vision update also introduces further visual enhancements to EVE Online with Contrast Adaptive Sharpening (CAS) from AMD, a process that considers the contrast of the pixels during the sharpening process. CAS will accurately sharpen visuals all across New Eden, including areas that have large contrast differences where normal sharpeners often struggle, bringing even further clarity and immersion to moon surfaces, ship hulls and more. Furthermore, CAS will be platform agnostic.
This feature will only be enabled when the ‘Post Processing’ setting within EVE is set to ‘High’ for the moment, but this will have almost zero impact on performance. You can check out the full details of this feature in the CAS dev blog.
There will also be details coming up very soon about an exciting EVE Online screenshot competition with awesome prizes including AMD hardware, PLEX and EVE merchandise, so keep an eye on all EVE social and news channels for that info!
These visual improvements continue to push the boundaries of how computer games can look, and represent investment in the future of the EVE in order to set it up for a thriving third decade!
Voting is now open for the 15th Council of Stellar Management (CSM15), so exercise your democratic right and cast your vote for the candidates you feel best represent your interests in New Eden! Make sure to check out the details on all of the candidates and cast your vote before 12:00 UTC on 8 June.
All Omega clones that were active for at least 60 days before voting starts are eligible to vote.
To celebrate the voting period, alongside voting for your chosen candidates in CSM15, you can also claim free gifts as part of the Rewards of Democracy daily login event running from 1 June to 8 June! Rewards include Skill Points, Boosters, Needlejack Filaments, and CSM-themed special edition shuttles.
Both Alpha and Omega Clone State Capsuleers can claim free gifts daily, with Omegas getting bigger and better rewards as well as being able to claim the Alpha rewards, too!
For those unfamiliar with how the voting works, please take a look at the video below created for one of the previous elections.
There is currently a limited time 10% discount on PLEX purchases of 500 PLEX and higher! You'll need to act fast, though, as the offer is only available until 11:00 UTC on 2 June.
Remember, you can trade your PLEX for in-game ISK to spend on ships and skills, or spend your PLEX at EVE Online's New Eden Store on Omega Clone State time to unlock access to all of EVE's ships and skills, as well as double training speed. Your PLEX can also buy you Skill Extractors, HyperCores, stunning ship SKINs, character apparel and more at the New Eden Store!
The HyperNet Relay fee reduction is also now live! The fee has temporarily been reduced from 5% to 0%, but only until 11:00 UTC on 4 June! It’ll be cheaper to put your items up for sale on the HyperNet Relay during this time, so don’t miss the opportunity to save some ISK.
Are you a Triglavian hunter or defender? Show your allegiance with the brand new Eden's Hunters and Kybernaut Clade SKINs for selected ships, available now in EVE Online's New Eden Store!
As Chapter 3 of the Triglavian Invasion is now underway, you can get either SKIN for the Nestor, Vindicator, Kikimora, Drekavac, Leshak, Guardian, Basilisk, Bifrost and Noctis.
For those eager to support and promote the efforts of Capsuleers hunting Triglavian structures and vessels, the unique Eden's Hunters SKIN is perfect for anyone aggressively taking the fight to the enemy.
Radical Capsuleers who find something attractive, even uplifting in Zorya Triglav's message of "proving and joining the flow" can display their allegiance with the Kybernaut Clade SKIN, its name a reference to the Triglavian term for Capsuleers.
Declare your support for the invaders, or for the Empires as they fight for New Eden!
The start of Invasion Chapter 3, the third and final installment in the year-long Triglavian Invasion expansion, is now live!
As seismic events occur and continue to unfold over the coming weeks and months, Capsuleers will have important decisions to make as they choose between defending the Empires of New Eden or siding with the mysterious Triglavian Collective. These choices will have a direct impact on how the story develops, and will have lasting consequences in New Eden, ensuring that life in the cluster will never be the same again!
There will be open conflict between EDENCOM forces and the Triglavians across high and low security space, with Capsuleers no doubt being drawn into engagements with roaming fleets, as well as each other, depending on the side they choose to fight for! As a result, Capsuleers will attain standings for EDENCOM and the Triglavian Collective.
New Eden will see new structures and defenses being created on all sides of the conflict as the situation develops, with the Triglavians establishing infrastructure focused on attack, and the Empires fortifying their star systems against invasion.
So will you, intrepid Capsuleers, remain allied to your chosen Empires or risk everything and side with their unknown and potentially dangerous enemy?
It's time to decide.
Tune in to CCP TV on Wednesday, 27 May at 19:00 UTC as CCP Hellmar (Hilmar Veigar Petursson, CEO), and CCP Ghost (Tryggvi Hjaltason, Senior Strategist) discuss the EVE Online Friendship Machine and the real-life learnings that can be taken from EVE Online.
As an added bonus CCP TV will premiere the short documentary, Even Asteroids Are Not Alone by filmmaker Jón Bjarki Magnússon.
"Like roaming asteroids, we move through space: never alone, forming deep bonds along the way. Hundreds of thousands of online gamers mine, trade, and fight their way through computer-generated galaxies far, far away from the world as we know it. In the vast and hostile world of New Eden, no one can really be trusted. How can one make friends in the depths of space? Weaving together the experiences of fourteen Eve Online players, we reveal an intimate story about the ability of online games to forge community and bridge the space between us."
On 1 July 2020, there will be an update to the pricing of all products for players paying using the Russian Ruble. The increase in prices will encompass Omega subscription, PLEX, Multiple Character Training, Value Packs, and Daily Alpha Injectors.
The main reason for the update is that the change in currency conversion over the last few years has created an imbalance between the pricing in Rubles compared with the rest of the world. This has resulted in the abuse of current price differences, which has had a negative impact, both in and out of game.
