Party at the Proving Grounds!

Hard partying Capsuleers,

To celebrate the grand gate-crashing of the Guardian’s Gala, a special Abyssal Proving Grounds event has been set-up, and it promises to be livelier than a Serpentis Corporation dancefloor in the small hours.

Running from 11-to-15 February, this unique Abyssal Proving Grounds round makes 1v1 destroyer combat its sole focus. And thanks to a blend of multiple arena effects and carefully selected restrictions, pilots can expect dramatic action, sudden twists of fate, and nail-biting conclusions.

The following arena effects will be in place throughout the event:

  • +100% bonus to the benefits of overheating, other than EWAR
  • +50% Stasis Webifier Strength
  • +50% Turret and Missile Damage
  • +25% Turret Falloff and Tracking Speed
  • +1000 base hull hitpoints

The event is open to Coercer, Dragoon, Cormorant, Corax, Catalyst, Algos, Thrasher, Talwar, and Sunesis hulls. And you’ll need to enter without sensor dampeners, shield rechargers, shield power relays, shield flux coils, and core defence field purgers – all of which are banned for this Proving Grounds round. Ships entering for combat must also have a maximum of one local repair module fitted (either shield or armor).

Pilots that join this event will also be restricted to Meta 5 modules.

To take part in the Guardian’s Gala Abyssal Proving Grounds event, grab your Proving Filaments and head to the Proving Grounds between 11:00 UTC 11 February and 11:00 UTC 15 February. Of course, the Proving Grounds leaderboards will allow you to track Capsuleer performance throughout the event.
