Has anyone ever encountered a Jove ship before? I've seen no sign of these guys at all, and with all the lore having existed for some time, one would think the would be SOME kind of evidence of their existance, pre-Kali. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Any rumors of encounters? YARRRR!!

Couple of jovian events, probably 2 years ago. No hide nor hair seen since.

Yes they have been seen in events run by CCP and Aurora, as well as other special occasions. But not for some time now I think.

There was an event years ago where a Jove Admiral and his 4 brothers (clone) went mad and escaped with their Jove Battleships and it took whole fleets to bring down one of these ships. Search back in the news archives to 2003 and you will see news related to it.

Create 400-500 man blob on map (preferably 0.0 system, Jita doesnt count), start combat, break node, whine for the lag. Sooner or later some jove ships will show up to check whats going on :)

No, not at all. And "required skill: jove frigate" means they are from mars.

Ah forgot. Type of ship: Polaris :)

So the Polaris is a Jove ship? Let me ask you this: Are you allowed to attack GMs? Can they even be destroyed? Do you have any more information about them?

They have 99% resist on all, a lot of armor. Not sure if you can even lock them. Even if you do they can cloack/warp everywhere. And they can fly with insane speeds :)

You could try to attack em but resistances are just insane on those things.
Has been a while since I've seen one but if I remember correctly it was something along the lines of 99% across the board. Shield Armor and Structure..
So you won't be able to pop him before he can teleport you to jita.

don't they also have LOADS of shields and like a 1 second recharge rate?
I don't think you could kill those things with a whole load of dreads

You can't lock them, they have 99.9% resists across the board, and have 6250 shield (2 second recharge). In short, to kill them, you'd need hundreds of smartbombs or doomsday devices at once.

There's some screen shots of Polaris Frigs here, for those interested. According to Battle Clinic, there is a specific skill for just this frig... but no mention of Jove there. Does anyone know of any screenshots of what Jove ships even look like?

I've got this movie on my harddrive called 'Jovian Jazz' which showcases a few jovian ships, two frigates, a cruiser, a battleship and an unknown ship.

It's available at EVE-files too:

Enjoy YARRRR!!

According to what information I have found in public item lookups, I've managed to locate a number of incomplete projects as well as the statistics on faction vessels which were complete and well into the game. I'm not sure however, the GMs and Moderators of Eve are aware of how much these public item lookup sites are though.

The stats found for the polaris frigates include a light shield, impossible tank armor and enough hull to outtank a titan (tons of 99% resistance and a shield recharge rate that is about as good as a constant shield booster). To top things off, with a powergrid and CPU that is bigger than anything I've run into in Eve, it has 1 medium and 1 high slot for fitting... But with the CPU and power, that one slot you could fit a titan superweapon on it.
In other words, "Don't Shoot The GM!"

Now, despite what the public think, they aren't Jove in any way. Polaris frigates (currently only frigates) are special craft for GMs and made for GMs only. They will never be given to public (it would be a dark day if they were) due to the incredible potential to be invincible in them.
However, Jovian technology... Thats another story.

According to tales and stories, the Jove are a mystery and a card that the Devs have yet to play. Item lookups show no results for "Jove" or "Jovian" tech other than skillbooks for frigates, cruisers, and battleships (if I remember right). This means that it is a project indeed and possibly means the Devs are looking into craft to fit into these books (rather than Polaris ships, which if looked up, you'll see there is only one skill book and that is given to the GM to train and use, hence not allowing others to be able to aquire the craft by any means should the rare happen).
Now, I took this info and thought back on the incomplete faction BPCs in the making which include the Mordus faction frigate and cruiser. Using the belief that objects planning to be released had BPCs made for them, I searched for blueprints. Lacking names, the only thing to look for was "blueprint"... Which gives you about 10,000 or so results.

However, I did spend about 4 hours looking through the blueprints. I found multiple results of "Jovian vessels" which I won't give names to for fear that I might have stumbled on something I wasn't suppose to see yet. However, in the results, were 5 or so frigates, a couple cruisers, and a battleship, all Jovian tier and tech and needed the respected Jove frigate/cruiser/battleship skill. Their stats were not setup like the Polaris frigates. These vessels were balanced out and had high resistance to ECM and enough medium slots to look VERY ideal for PvP or shield tankers. However, the Jove skill itself for any of them requires "Spaceship Command Level 5" before you can train it.

Other than that, the Jove ships were very well balanced and looked ideal to be in line for public release. My only guess is that the Jove race isn't complete yet (not finished making the ships), mainly if it is going to factor in with a new character selection (which I doubt, yet, you never know).

In the end, the result of this bit of info is,
"The Jovian vessels exsist. They just aren't done yet."

And you never know...

(Don't ask how or which item-lookup I used to find this info to see yourself, in regards to the safety of the Devs and their projects, I'm going to say you need to find out yourself.
To the GMs and Devs, if this material that shouldn't be public, you might want to look into exactly who can access the structure of Eve.)

Polaris ships are not Jove ships, they are POLARIS ships. I believe if you scan one, it might have some weird polaris skill (like how jove shps need a jove skill apparently).

And no, you can't destroy a Polaris ship. Every player in EVE would have to be firing on it and then they MIGHT break the shields, which are something like 5k shields, with 99.9% resists, and a 2second recharge.Confused

The jove jazz video was made by changing game testures, so you can change your client to show a ship aspect in a different one,

all the ships in the video it's just a lil shuttle but using a jove texture already in game =D
