Greetings, Captains. The 8.51 and 8.52 update is deploying Wednesday, December 19th at ~4:00 PM PDT. This update contains support for our first run of Bounty following the PvP Refactor, along with support for Krampocalypse. Check out the details below.



BOUNTY 16

Begins: Thursday, December 20th @ 10:00AM PST
Ends: Monday, December 24th @ 10:00AM PST

Earn new Tier 8 Turrets or pick up any remaining Tier 7 PvP content you may need in this revamped version of Bounty.

New changes include automatically securing a percentage of all Bounty earned, fewer Nexus’ meaning more alliance competition, and redistributed point payouts meaning higher initial seed grants. Manual banking of Bounty has been removed.

Additionally, dock repairs during Bounty are now discounted, and we are running another discounted refit period for Tier 7 PvP content!

Full details will be released in a briefing on Wednesday.
