Vendetta Online 1.8.205

VO 1.8.205 includes:- Fixed crash on exit after changing certain Video Options on Mac/Windows/Linux versions.- PCC Missions now have an optional Begin/End Time requirement that allows missions to be visible for a certain time.- Ore taken by missions now count as being sold to the station for awards such as Basic Miner badges.- Accomplishment and faction awards now cause the station Buy menus to update automatically so new items are available immediately.- Added Front/Rear text labels to Front and Rear HUD radars that disappear when you hit Combat license 3. The labels are also togglable in Options->Interface->HUD->"Show Radar Labels when Combat < 3". In addition to the above, another change should be mentioned that was accidentally left out of a previous patch log. We altered PvP collision damage to do only a fraction of the damage it did previously. Thus, when player ships ram other player ships, it does less damage than when they ram stations or NPCs. This was done to help alleviate a certain exploitative tactic of PvP killing designed to avoid faction loss in monitored or guarded space. The lack of faction loss for collision deaths was itself a previous work-around for a much older exploitative tactic where players could get others to lose their faction by suiciding themselves against their enemies. So, let's hope this latest alteration removes some of the issues for the moment, until some future problem is discovered stemming from players colliding too much (heh). Until then..Have a happy new year, everyone!

The 2011 Holiday Gift Offers

Happy holidays and best wishes for the coming year from the EVE Online Customer Support Team!


From early December, and running up to the holidays themselves, CCP had promotional items available for the Crucible expansion as well as the yearly holiday gift available to all active players.  These were announced in their respective blogs.

In addition, the Choose A Gift program and the Genolution CA-2 implant were covered completely on the Crucible website.

Unfortunately due to the new way we chose to make the holiday gift available to the player base there were some unfortunate misunderstandings and quite a lot of players completely missed out on the holiday gift! This was entirely unintentional as the plan was to make the players EVE holiday experience that much more entertaining.

We have learned from this and will ensure that other gift programs will be better in both execution and communication.

But you still want your gifts and promotional items, don’t you?

EVE Online Customer Support is going to step up to the task and ensure that every pilot that contacts us before Thursday, January 5 at 23:59 UTC will receive any gifts or promotional items that they were eligible to receive over the holiday period.

Here you can see who was eligible for what and when:

  • If you had an active paid account from November 29th to December 5th you are eligible to receive the Genolution CA-1 implant.
  • If you had an active paid account from December 12th to December 21st you are eligible to receive the Genolution CA-2 implant.
  • If you had an active account from December 12th to January 5th then you are eligible for a choice of gift from the Choose A Gift program!


Please note that you must petition before Thursday, January 5 at 23:59 UTC!


Please submit your petition to request your holiday gift items as outlined below. You can file a petition through the website, through the in-game petition interface or by sending us an e-mail to It may take a few days for us to be able to respond to your petition but we assure you that ALL petitions sent to us will be responded to.

  • Please set the category to Billing & Account and the sub-category to Reactivation Offers.
  • If you have multiple accounts, then please submit only one petition with information on all of your accounts.
  • If you are requesting the Neural Surgery gift from the Choose A Gift program them please specify which character on which account should be receiving it.


We are sincerely sorry for all the trouble with the holiday gift program this year and we hope that you all enjoyed happy holidays regardless.

Senior GM Spiral, over and out.
