On Thursday, October 7, 2010, an Incursion dungeon mass test will be held at 14:00 UTC. CCP Manticore's dev blog provides details on where the tests will be held and what information we will need from you to help us with this upcoming feature. You can read it all here.

Awesome!

How long will these dungeons remain there? I.e. can I get some people to run them after I come from work on Thursday? Fri/Sat/Sun?

Nice!

What's the time frame here? Can we log in a couple of hours later after 14:00 and still participate?

So basically the amazing new feature I was excited about is just existing content with new AI, monotonous NPCs and a loot distribution mechanic.

Disappointed now. Crying or Very sad

sooo once I scan down the site a beacon will be in local telling every roaming gang: HERE IS A GROUP OF PLAYERS FIGHTING NPC'S!!!!! And they can just enter the site without problem?

This can get ugly in 0.0 (or fun depending on wich side you areYARRRR!!)

So I guess that's October the 7th, right?

And from the dev blog there are two points that strike me:

1. Please stick to these numbers? Wut? Okay, haven't seen the mechanics yet, but I thought there were at least some mechanics that favoured smaller groups. Noone will stick to the numbers on TQ, that's for sure. Sandbox and all that kind of stuff?

2. writing feedback in an evemail? You do know that evemails are very limited in terms of character numbers, right? Guess you only want one line of feedback from each group?...

The blog says the 7th for the incursion mass test.

The thread says the 6th though.

I mistyped. It's the 7th, and now corrected in this thread. Thanks :D

Just to clarify, this is not the entire "Incursion Feature." This test is specifically targeted at the content portion of Incursion.

Also for people worried about the testing starting too early, this test will not be in a small time frame. Once it starts, we will be leaving it running for a while.

How long are the dungeons going to remain available on SiSi? Will they re-spawn? I'd love to try them out, but I'm at work when the changes go live...

Also, what's the intended ship-type for this? Are they gated?

Looks like the setup will be remote reps or rep drones. Not had any experience with drones and if the rats target them.

Does EW work on the rats?, still not tried that out as a bs would just melt before being able to give it a good go Laughing

Should be an interesting day, will there be markets in said solar systems as it will be a pain in the arse having to do a few jumps after every ship is annihilated. Hopefully with some good teamwork that can be avoided.

Kinda glad I didn't start work this week.

Oh!, are there going to be a few sites in each system or just 1?, could get rather busy otherwise (depending on turnout)

I hope there will be a legitimate mechanic to prevent more than 5/10/20 to 10/20/40 pilots from warping into a dungeon. Or, that they will be plentiful enough that there won't be cases where 200 people end up in an easy dungeon and nobody gets much of anything.

Will there be another probe type for these dungeons or another unknown we will have to distinguish from? ugh

Helping with Singularity Testing is still a pain, but it looks like things might be improving:

1. Old Sisi Client wouldn't connect, incompatible build. This was expected. Tried to auto patch itself, checksum failed.

2. Repair.exe old Sisi client. Downloaded stuff, tried to apply patch to a temp directory, couldn't change to correct directory, failed.

3. Delete entire Sisi client, make a new copy of working TQ client. This fallback usually works, only this time it can't find a matching patch to download. Fail.

4. Repair.exe on it works, but repairs to TQ instead of Sisi. Fail.

4. Forum surfing a bit, I discover the Sisi Launcher. Download works, starts checksumming and downloading MASSIVE ammounts of stuff.

5. Sisi connect works! "Read and accept the EULA please" Uh. All settings lost. But connection's there.

6. New TQ dump, i. e. I'm somewhere in the deep dark. Right. Moveme, fit new ship, but at least the 6m test skill points are still there - nice, that!

7. EMERGENCY SHUTDOWN IN 10 MINUTES! Oh cool. Reconnect after shutdown. Build incompatible (looks like Sisi is on TQ waiit ... I just fixed my client!)

8. Wait 15 minutes. Ah good! Sisi got patched. Reconnect. Build incompatible. Go to Step 4. 230MB patch download pending. 33% done at this moment.

Naturally, I haven't sitting in front of the computer watching it do all this all the time, but I thought trying to get onto Sisi 13:15ish would be ample time to get set up for actual testing near 14:00, but it's 16:05 now and I'm still downloading patches.

So that's your patch feedback for now. I think I'll go have dinner and maybe try again later in the night.

Exciting, WOW Raid dungeons are finally coming to eve online.

As far as scanning goes, it only needs to be done for this test and you can just use your on-board scanner.

Devs will be running around assisting with "popping" sites so they show up on the overview.

What we do ask is, if you warp your group into a site that is already at it's max of players, please move on to find another one.

I just want to reinforce that this test will be focusing on refining the site content.
This specific test does not reflect the entire Incursion feature.

Will there be any test sites geared toward the smaller groups (i.e. 1 - 3 pilots or so) available for testing?

You're seriously calling them dungeons?! That is the stupidest thing I heard since some guy on the BBC told me to wrap a banana in bacon and fry it. The banana was awful and so is this moniker!

Why bother testing when it is obvious you don't investigate or attempt to fix the bugs reported before dropping the POS patch/expansions on us?

Please tell me I'm understanding it all wrong. Please tell me Eve isn't going to turn into another WoW clone, only with spaceships....

Deadspace complexes and mission sites have always been called "dungeons" by the EVE developers.

It's no big deal.

Mission and exploration sites have always been called dungeons in devblogs. It's just a generic content term.
