Researching the Rogues

by EVE Online Team1:00pm on Thursday 23rd September 2021

Epic Capsuleers,

As part of the Gateway Quadrant, the brand-new Researching the Rogues event is now live in EVE Online! This is a great time to dive into New Eden with Researching the Rogues, which offers daily challenges and rewards, daily login gifts, plus combat and hacking sites until 11:00 UTC on 4 October.

Also, as EVE Online has just launched on the Epic Games store, there are exciting new packs in the EVE Store, so there’s plenty to celebrate and get involved in right now!


Researching the Rogues

Rogue Drones have been a regular nuisance and threat in recent years across the cluster, but now Capsuleers are urgently being called upon by the Association for Interdisciplinary Research (AIR) to defend their research sites from attack by these drone assailants.

There are all-new combat and exploration sites across all space, with the greatest rewards available in Lowsec from Advanced Drone Outgrowth Colony and AIR Rogue Drone Researchers sites. The combat sites are designed to be run only by tech 1 frigates, faction frigates, and tech 1 destroyers. Rewards include new AIR SKINs, returning Cryptic Mimesis SKINs, cerebral accelerators, new time-limited AIR scanning boosters, returning blueprint copies for the 'Subverted' JVN-UC49 drone, plus overseer’s personal effects that can be sold in-game for ISK.

Adding to the allure of these sites, a series of combat and exploration challenges will unlock further rewards such as more AIR boosters and new AIR Laboratories SKINs for Sisters of EVE ships when successfully completed.

On top of all that, there will be free daily rewards for logging in to EVE during Researching the Rogues, with Omega Capsuleers getting even better rewards than Alphas. The daily login rewards include AIR boosters, new Semiotique Sports SKINs, and thousands of Skill Points. Remember, if you upgrade to Omega after the event has started, you can claim any Omega rewards missed.

All of the above will run until 11:00 UTC on 4 October, so there’s no time to lose!
