Tranquility will undergo an extended downtime on Wednesday, 12 March. The start time is 0200 GMT and the length of the downtime is expected to be fourteen hours. During this time the "Boost" patch will be applied to Trinity consisting of fixes and improvements.

Patch Notes has been added. Updates to the notes may be added as more items are cleared through the Quality Assurance process. These updates will be highlighted with green text. Please keep all patch discussion in this forum thread.

Please note: Training a long learning duration skill ending after the scheduled return to service is recommended.

Update: Ok, what has happened is that we've taken down the patch notes. We will go over every single note, make sure it is coming in Trinity 1.1 and then we'll put it all back up again. Unfortunately that means we might not be able to get the list up until tomorrow, Monday.

Please note that the patch has been postponed one day and will be applied on Wednesday, not Tuesday!

Why isn't the forum index page updated with your 'Latest Topic' post for EVE Information Portal?

Cool, but why doesn't the forum index update with the latest poster in 'EVE Information Portal'
At the moment it shows only '2008.02.19 19:25:00 by: CCP Wrangler'

This was the case too for the last few dev blogs and the quarterly econ blog.

Just curious.

We've been preparing these announcements ahead of time and just move them in here when we're ready to announce things.

Thanks.. yea I know but that answer didn't make sense.

I hardly think they prep'ed the OP (5 lines of txt) beforehand.. and then publish when ready.. really?

Since 'forever' I have used the forum index page to see if new topics are posted, and since they brought out the information portal I used the index page to see if there is anything of interest. Since the new year it's been hit and miss, and erratic, from my point of view anyway.

I was just curious.

Looking forward to the patch notes, and to a lesser extent patch day Laughing

Basically, if a thread is posted in a forum it will show up as the most recent post in that forum. If we post it in another forum and then move it, the thread will not show up. The reason for this is that it was the way the forums were programmed to work.

So, we have our own secret forum you can't see. For convenience, we post the thread there at first. That way we can prepare the pot in advance and tweak it and everything. This is great if I for example want Saint or Navigator or someone else to make a post, but I need it to become public when they're not there.

Either way, this is how it works and that is why we do things this way. I don't know if that makes sense to you but it does to me. Wink

The original schedule called for a release in early Feb but there were issues in the localisation process that we had to sort out and then there was the the Alliance Tournament in early Mar. So 11 Mar it is. We used the extra time well for additional bug fixes.

Underneath the hood in EVE Online: Trinity 1.1 are massive database changes that will allow for more rapid and frequent delivery of new content in the future, such as new missions. Therefore we are doing an off-line backup of the database, like we do when deploying expansions, and that explains the start time.

Well, as an Amarr PvPer, I'm looking forward to the Omen/Zealot changes like nothing else. Would be nice if the ammo was changed, but hey, at least something is being fixed.

Oh did they keep that -4 to raptor grid thing...well it always had to fit a MAPC before, so might as well keep it that way I geuss. I always thought it odd it already had -5 grid compared to the caldari missile interceptor, but just means the thing will still be cheap because it won't be much better. Good old suicide tackler. Can't complain too much though, the rest of the changes seem nice.

Hiya,
Well done, I think I can honestly say we have all been waiting for this.
For future can we let the community know that there is going to be delays and a rough approximtion ( or did I and others misss it) i see loads of posts asking what happened to the boost patch, but no reponses.

Thrilled to bits that its here now.. With regard to Af's / Drone Ships as well as the already changed ships on sisi, have we had any alterations? or have these been scrapped for the time being.. if so.. any ideas on when these may be implemented.. i.e. are we waiting another 3 months roughly?

Edit: wasnt there also a mention of black ops ships alterations, or have I got this confused with a seperate thing entirely..

Dont mind, would just like to know what is happening.. a rough idea would be kewl...

Thanks Guys

Without patch notes can't say for sure. But, anticipating another patch with a bunch more and many of which will be unneeded buffs to Caldari, a smattering of buffs for Amarr but still no overall fix for lazor suckage (oh well thanks for the few fixes, better than nothing which has happened to Amarr on too many recent patches), and over the top nerfs to gallente ugh

Please pleasantly surprise me one of these patches. I do love the game.
