Patch Notes For EVE Online: Onslaught 1.1

Released on Wednesday, November 14th 2018

Defect Fixes:

Gameplay:

  • Fixed an issue where sites (including Wormholes) in Factional Warfare space would be incorrectly removed at downtime.
  • Temporarily disabled the fix for warping to new sites for escalation sites, as it caused a worse experience for some escalation sites.

Skills:

  • For those players attempting to train Precursor Battleship or Precursor Cruiser before the new prerequisites were introduced, 1 skillpoint has been granted in these skills to allow for continued training without the Prerequisite skills, akin to the Grandfathered skills method in previous releases with these kinds of skill changes. (See this news item for details on the issue.)

Structures & Deployables:

  • Fixed an issue where the Hangar Containers of an unanchored or destroyed Upwell Structure would spawn at an incorrect distance.

User Interface:

  • Clicking on a notification for a contract will again open the contract.
  • Fixed a rare bug, where a popup window will not open correctly, if there was already some similar popup window open.
