November Mastery Reward
The goal of battle is to win. But for some, winning is not enough. You must dominate your opponent completely and make him regret ever facing off against you. In November, we will be rewarding people when they do master the art of war. Every day, for your best 3 wins (in terms of War Points earned), you will earn double the amount of War Points in Skill Points. These bonus Skill Points will not count against your weekly cap and will be awarded every Tuesday.


Accelerated SP Week
From November 6 to 13, players will earn active Skill Points from battles at three times the normal rate. During the week, your weekly Skill Point cap will be tripled as well. Passive Skill Point gain will remain normal.


Black Eagle Battle Test
The Black Eagles are running a public trial of their iconic 'Black Eagle' Scout G/1-Series dropsuit from November 14 to 21. Every player will be provided with 50 Black Eagle dropsuits absolutely for free. For every 5 kills scored with a Black Eagle dropsuit weapon, you will earn an additional Black Eagle dropsuit at the end of the trial! These bonus dropsuits will be capped at 70.


Winter Carnage
It's time to paint the snowy white winter red with blood! From November 23 to 30, using your best weapons to rack up the kills will earn you bonus rewards. Best of all, the rewards are based entirely on the weapon you use! Any heavy, light, or sidearm you use in battle is eligible for these rewards.
  • For every 10 kills made with a Standard weapon, earn 1 Advanced-tier weapon of the same type.
  • For every 10 kills made with an Advanced weapon, earn 2 Prototype-tier weapons of the same type.
  • For every 10 kills made with a Prototype weapon, earn 1 copy of the 'Quafe' Scout gk.0 dropsuit.

All kills must be made with the same weapon type. All rewards are capped at 100 copies. Only applies for FW and Public matches.

Awesome! I knew that 7-day Omega would come in handy!

Edit: How did I get first?

Yes indeed.


Small clarifications wouldn't still hurt:

I would like to see the comment "from downtime to downtime" in order to be sure not to have the extended cap extra grind day that happened twice last spring...


It seems a bit grindy, I'd say double SP cap would've sufficed with 3x active WP to SP gain, as we learned that passive part forms the large chunk of battle's SP earnings.
But it's not that bad. If running out of weekly game time, people can always help to reach the extended cap by afk farming... =P

What about using OFFICER weapons?
Those do take same amount of balls to use...


Haha, I'm half kidding, of course.
But on serious level, that might bring an interesting mechanic: Will you risk some of those very limited weapons in order to get something else? Balancing would be slightly difficult though, as the reward must not be trash but should not be over the top extravagant.

Will the Active Omega Booster extend that bonus even more?


Also, Nice job CCP, they are finally getting the hang of what makes for a good event instead of the usual fluff.

As per usual:
Passives (skill points and therefore passive boosters) are not affected by events at all.

You're surely meaning ACTIVE boosters, which are expected to indeed further enhance the extra bonus!
