    by CCP Dopamine on October 26, 2020 at 13:15

    Hello everyone, We are conducting a mass test on the Singularity test server on Tuesday, 27 October at 17:00 UTC. Remember that what you see on Singularity is not final and is subject to change based on feedback and final touches of our development teams, before it arrives on Tranquility. What are we testing? The main focus of this event is to test server performance and fleet fight situations for the new Supercarrier Tactical Capsuleer Recloner. More information about the test can be found in the official thread on EVE Online forums. How to log in to Singularity? Accessing Singularity is very easy! All you need to do is change the server from Tranquility to Singularity in the bottom right corner of the launcher and log in as usual. More detailed instructions are available here.
