You Flew. You Fought. You Decided! EVE:Valkyrie's community chose this weekend’s Wormhole



As we head into this weekend it’s a particularly hearty “A-Harrr” we extend to our merry band of pirates.

Normally we would spend our time off with a mix of gaming, socializing with family and generally going about the business of chilling the heck out.

Not this week. Quality time with the family will have to be rain-checked on this occasion, because EVE: Valkyrie’s latest weekly Wormhole Event is a doozy, and for regular Wormhole participants it will be pleasantly familiar, for reasons we will explain shortly.

What is This Madness?

If you’ve only just joined us as a fledgling flyer in the ranks of the Valkyrie, allow us to explain what wormholes are, and why they have proven to be one of the most popular of EVE: Valkyrie’s features.

A wormhole is a strange and highly unstable galactic phenomenon that, for a limited time, offers us a glimpse of an alternate universe. While the wormhole is active, pilots are able to travel through a conduit and explore versions of Valkyrie’s maps that have been corrupted and distorted in bizarre and unexpected ways.




For example, the hub of bustling activity known as the shipyard will, in the alternate universe, be plunged into near total darkness leaving players with the tricky task of hunting their enemies using the glowing emissions from their engines alone.

The differences experienced through a wormhole are more than cosmetic, though. The laws of physics are altered and, as a result, the performance of ships and weapons can be severely affected. You may find yourself only able to pilot a limited roster of ships, shields may become inoperable, missile effectiveness can be greatly enhanced and your craft may experience a super boost of speed.

Each week the conditions present a complete surprise to our pilots. At least, that has been the case until this week.

You Flew, You Fought, You Decided!

Several weeks ago, we posted a poll on our forums asking you, our pilots, which of the previous wormholes you liked the best and that you would like to see return. There was a choice of three:

  • Wraiths only, with no shields on the Crossroads map
  • Super boost rainbow trails on Nightyard
  • Friendly fire, Heavies only on Cathedral

The result was overwhelmingly in favour of the Wraith-only option, so this weekend it’s back!

The map you will experience for the next 72 hours is the distorted version of Crossroads that has come to be known as Goldenroad. Its warped structures are bathed in a golden shimmering light and it’s quite something to behold.

If you want a quick taster of the Goldenroad map before going in, no problem. Ace pilot and prolific game streamer SalsaKetchup has been chronicling the weekly Wormholes from week one, via the medium of video, and you can see his exploration of the glittering Goldenroad area below. Thanks for that Salsa.

We hope you enjoy the return of this hugely popular wormhole. Head through the conduit and when you’re getting blatted repeatedly thanks to the lack of shields, remember… you voted for this!

Patch 2017_R3 is now live



Hello Pilots,

Today, Wednesday, July 12, we have made a patch available to EVE: Valkyrie players [2017_R3] that introduce a raft of balance changes designed to make your combat experience better than ever. We’ve done this using internal data, personal experience and, crucially, community feedback.

Included are changes to the leading reticule and crosshairs to improve accuracy and visual overheat feedback, respectively. Also, we’ve tweaked the stats of several ships in each of the three ship classes to improve overall balance.

In addition to all the gameplay changes in today’s update, we’ve worked with NVIDIA to take PC virtual reality game visuals to a new level with EVE: Valkyrie’s “Ultra” graphics setting.

Head over to CCP Roo's full patch notes here for all the juicy details.

We hope you enjoy the changes we’ve made. Your feedback has been invaluable in helping us to deliver the experience you all want.

On that note, please let us know, not only what you think of the latest patch, but also what sort of tweaks and improvements you would like to see in the future. We’re listening, so head over to the forums and get your voices heard.

Fly safe!

The Story


Cold. Disorientated. You awake in a clone tank.

As you look around you see the frosted silhouettes of other pilots jolting to life. A memory repeats over and over in your mind. The memory of your death. Unknowingly, and against your will, you've been recruited - stolen from your previous life and re-purposed at the hands of a man known only as Fatal.

Using illegal tech, he is stealing the consciousnesses of dying fighter pilots and inserting them into specially designed clones at the point of death.

Rán Kavik was one of the first to undergo this process but broke away when she discovered the truth behind her death. She was not saved by the notorious Guristas, but had in fact been targeted and killed by them. As had all the Valkyrie.Tough, independent and driven, she is now waging a private war against her former clan as well as the corporation that she blames for the downfall of her family.

Today, Rán leads the Valkyrie. They roam the heavens in the dark, lawless regions of New Eden. Their survival is not certain, their enemies are many. But they are faster, deadlier and more unrelenting than anything out there. The Valkyrie have scores to settle and are dying for a fight. Join them in the next life.
