EVE Online: Rubicon Status Post

EVE Online: Rubicon
Expansion name: Rubicon
Release date: November 19th, 2013
Expansion theme: Space Colonization, POCOs in high sec, small gang boost, ship rebalancing
Last update of this post: 15.11.2013
Patch notes: Rubicon

Intro

rubiconOn 26th of September CCP has announced the upcoming winter expansion called Rubicon. The deveplopers of EVE have hinted the general direction back on Fanfest, when CCP Seagull spoke about future EVE where capsuleers are not just inhabitants of New Eden. Players are supposed to colonize space, make it their own. Rubicon is probably the first in a series of expansions with space colonization theme.

While the first and most obvious feature that comes to mind is revamp of the POS system, it will not be happening just yet.

Rubicon has been available on Singularity test server since 7th of October 2013. Source: dev forum post.

Features

Structures

Player Owned Customs Offices in high-sec. The CONCORD NPC-owned Customs will be transfered to Interbus and will become destructible, letting players to destroy them and erect their own Customs Offices in their place.

  • Shooting Interbus Customs Office only grants 5 minute PVE timer - but no suspect flag
  • To take a high-sec POCO out, corporations have to be at war
  • Corporation cannot transfer POCO to other corporations when at war (also applies to the 24h grace period at the beginning and end of a war)
  • Taxes will be part NPC - part player set. The base tax will be 10% for export and 5% for import. In addition, players can set the tax level they want.
  • Base values used by the game to calculate the tax will be reduced by 11% (P4) to 20% (P1)
  • It will be possible to completely deny access to POCO based on standings
  • New skill will be introduced to lower the NPC portion of the tax: Customs Code Expertise.

4 new anchorable structures (think of them in similar way to anchorable containers)

- Siphon - will allow stealing moon goo and reaction products from POSes

  • There will be one "small" Siphon Unit in Rubicon (20 m³)small-mobile-siphon-unit
  • Capacity of the unit will be 1200m3
  • BPO will be sold by NPCs, build price should be around 10M ISK
  • Siphon units have an EHP around 50-100k
  • Siphon units are deployed exactly like containers
  • Siphon units must be deployed within 50km of Control Tower
  • Siphon units can be freely attacked or their cargo accessed
  • Siphon units wont be automnatically attacked by POS defenses
  • Siphon unit will steal 60 units of raw material or 25 units of processed materialmobile-siphon-showinfo
  • Siphon unit will have a waste ratio of 20%
  • Small Siphon unit will not steal alchemy products
  • There will be no notification for the POS owner
  • EVE API Assets feed WILL LIE about the contents of Silos (in order to hide Siphon unit from API checks)

Ships will be recoverable from wrecks of Ship Maintenance Arrays

Ships

- Tech III ships will be able to swap subsystems in space (using SMA, Capital ship or the new Mobile Depot)

Source: Dev forum post

- Warp speed acceleration increase

  • This change does not affect align time
  • T1 Cruiser with no rigs will not notice any difference warping after the patch
  • Smaller ships will warp and accelerate much faster
  • T2 ships will warp and accelerate 10% faster than T1 counterparts
  • Larger ships will warp and accelerate considerably slower
  • ...but Freighters will warp slightly faster
  • Hyperspatial Velocity Optimizer rigs will be tweaked to have CPU output penalty (instead of Armor)
  • T3 Gravitational Capacitor subsystems will have their per level bonus reduced from 15% to 12.5%

The warp acceleration change has already been pushed to Singularity, and I must say that small ships are speed demons now. I was flying an Eris interdictor to test the new interdiction sphere textures. Warping small ships looks more like in most sci-fi movies now - they accelerate and decelerate so fast, that objects like stargates or planets almost "appear" before you when ship drops out of warp. This also means you would arrived on target grid almost instantly. To prevent this and still allow players to see where the interceptor came from, CCP is adding a deceleration cap nearly 6 AU/s. Unfortunately this change further marginalizes Battleships. Their increased cost after the rebalance and slower warp acceleration introduced in Rubicon will cause that FCs will prefer more mobile platforms.

- Marauder rebalancing

2013.10.08.15.25.46Devs have made two attempts to rebalance Marauders. Players were very unhappy to see the Stasis Webifier bonus gone, thus second iteration brought them back (but nerfed a little from 10% per level to 7.5% per level). Due to Rubicon coming to Singularity soon, CCP decided to go back to the first iteration of rebalance, so Stasis Web bonus is gone again.

Marauders will have two modes of operation:

In regular mode, they will be similar to current TQ version, but they will get a huge bonus to Micro Jump Drive cool down time.

In deployed mode (using Bastion module in similar fashion to Siege), their hulls will visually transform (they will have fancy visible animations like the Rorqual; that's the first time when additional model animations mentioned on Fanfest 2013 will be used) and they become a fixed "artillery" with a bonus to resistances, tanking, damage projection and receive EWAR immunity. They cannot be remote assisted or move when Bastion is online. MJD cannot be used either.

v2 proposal - now including light rapids as well - dev forum post

In the second iteration CCP Rise has proposed an "Ancillary" approach to all (both light and heavy) Rapid Launchers. They will now offer really high DPS for limited period of time (50-60 seconds), followed by a 40 second reload:

Rapid Light Missile Launcher rate of fire
Rapid Light Missile Launcher I 7.8s
Rapid Light Missile Launcher II 6.24s
Prototype 'Arbalest' Rapid Light Missile Launcher 6.24s
Rapid Heavy Missile Launcher rate of fire
Rapid Heavy Missile Launcher I 6.48s
Rapid Heavy Missile launcher II 5.185s
'Arbalest' Rapid Heavy Missile Launcher I 5.185s
Reload time for both groups changed to 40 seconds.

- Bastion modulebastion-module-showinfo

  • Increases shield and armor repair amount by 100%
  • Boosts all shields, armor and hull resistances by 30%
  • Extends all large turret falloff and optimal by 25%
  • Increases all large missile max velocity by 25%
  • Has a cycle time of 60 seconds.
  • When in bastion mode, Marauder is immune to EW but cannot be remote assisted in any way
  • When in bastion mode, Marauder speed is set to 0 m/s and cannot warp (mass is unchanged). Also receives a weapons timer that prevents station docking or gate jumping. Weapon time doesn't require the user to drop weapon safeties in high-sec
  • Only one may be fitted per Marauder, cannot be deactivated before cycle ends
  • Fitting: 10 CPU and 100 powergrid
  • Skill requirements: High Energy Physics 4 and Energy Grid Upgrades 5

Exploration

Ghost Sites will be a new, rare type of cosmic anomaly. They will appear in all areas of space, but different items will be dropped, depending on type of space. Content of these sites will be based on fast paced hacking and combat.Items dropped from Ghost Sites include materials and blueprints for the first player-manufacturable implant set 'Ascendancy', which will greatly improve warp speed.

  • No need for a probe scanner, they will show up as Cosmic Anomalies
  • "fast-paced, often dangerous action"
  • only have one chance to hack
  • if you fail, it blows up!
  • spend too much time and pirates will come to defend their property
  • "they will blow up the research facilities, causing damage to everyone in the vicinity"
  • New manufacturable implant set based on materials and blueprints recovered from ghost sites
