Does anyone know if the start and end of each day for this event is based on GMT 0 (New Eden time)? If so i'll have to make sure to check an international clock to see which day i'm currently in.

Or is each day based on the time zone that we are playing in?

Is nobody else going to comment on this? Isn't this the first official confirmation that the next build won't be beta?


The wording for this was off and has been amended. It should simply have stated that Uprising was going to be released so apologies if the message conveyed was incorrect.

Has anyone calculated the ISK value of the rewards for the week?
For tier 3 Reward I get (and I'm guessing some prices here):
30 advanced guns @ 13 k each = 390k ISK
5 B series suits @ 23k each = 115k ISK
35 kinetic modules @ 5k each = 175k ISK
total value = 680k ISK

For the week you need to do 35 missions to get all the rewards so that is a bonus of about 20K ISK earned per match (in item rewards). Again, my numbers are mostly off the top of my head so this is not exact, but it is probably close. If someone wants to be more precise or do the other tiers, feel free.

But yeah, if you miss a week just do 3-4 matches with free suits and buy the stuff yourself. This is not really a complaint, I think the event idea is a good one and I will probably participate just for the heck of it. But people need to look at the numbers and not get worked up over missing part of it.

Since we have no idea what the module will be for doing 100 missions, there is no way of knowing what the value or rarity of that will be so that is left to you to decide whether it is worth going for.

Just play 5 matches, then you will qualify.

I should think it'll be GMT/ New Eden time.

So, just to give you guys an update.

I see a lot of questions here and I will have CCP Frame and CCP Cmdr Wang give you some updates on those questions in the coming hours.

I feel bad I'm still confused. I'll ask the same question with two different examples...

Lets say I only want one reward -- the reward for fighting one battle on Friday. If I play that one battle and no others during the week can I get that reward?

If I want the two-battle Wednesday reward and the three-battle Friday reward can I just fight that many battles on those days and get those rewards?

It is but to keep the nerves at strain, to dry one's eyes and laugh at a fall, and baffled, get up and begin again.

A second question -- asked before but put into EVE terms...

Are the rewards Blueprints or Blueprint Copies? For example, is the "5 copies of standard Shotgun blueprints" reward 5 Blueprints or the equivalent of a single run Blueprint Copy good for a build of 5 units of Standard Shotgun?

I don't think DUST has BPC as we think of them in EVE terms.
I think what I read is that you'll receive copies of BPOs.

What to do with the extra BPOs? Sell them at some point.

I'm a nub when it comes to DUST though so YMMV, grain of salt, all of that.

First example - If you just play that battle on Friday, you WILL get the reward for that day.
Second example - Yes, for example: If you want the Rank 2 reward on Wednesday, fight 3 battles, then if you want the Rank 1 reward on Friday, fight 1 battle and you will be rewarded with those rewards.

Yeah -- I agree about the BPC. What I was trying to say way that the bonus is just 5 copies of the item -- what you would have if they _did have_ BPCs and you ran the manufacturing job to get the items.

The only useful post in this thread, this is what I wanted to know, thanks for doing the calculations. Also i'd rather just have the extra ISK than more unsellable junk.

They mean single run BPCs, just like the items you normally get on the market. The only thing used on the battlefield that isn't built on the spot by nanites using licensed blueprints is the clone.

Crappy wording in the event reward descriptions.

So just to clarify, Skirmish and Ambush both count as "Matches"?
