Eagerly competitive Capsuleers,

The Abyssal Proving Grounds of New Eden are once again opening for battle, offering you a chance to assert your PvP dominance in some of the cluster’s most exhilarating organized combat.

Running live from 11:00 UTC 9 April until 11:00 UTC 13 April, the new Abyssal Proving Grounds event focusses on 3v3 Tech I destroyer battles. Permitted hulls eligible for this round are: Cormorant, Corax, Algos, Catalyst, Dragoon, Coercer, Thrasher, Talwar, and Sunesis.

All pilots that enter the Abyssal Proving Grounds for a spot of 3v3 destroyer combat will be granted a +10% thermal/kinetic missile damage bonus while competing, promising distinct and high-energy battles to keep players of every skill level on their toes. - Modules limited to meta level 5 and below - No pirate implants

This Abyssal Proving Grounds round also runs parallel to The Hunt – a sweeping event with multiple elements across EVE Online, including special combat and exploration sites, valuable rewards, PvP Implant drops, a NES sale, Omega and MCT discounts, a merch sale, and more. As such, competing in the 3v3 destroyer Proving Grounds event will contribute to your The Hunt daily login bonus. Visit New Eden for 10 of The Hunt’s 14 days to claim a range of reward SKINs. Be sure not to miss out! Gather your Proving Filaments and head to the Abyssal Proving Grounds!

And finally, as ever you’ll be able to monitor Capsuleer performance in the Proving Grounds using the leaderboards.
