EVE: Equinox Patch Notes - The Early Patches (6.12, 6.13, 6.14)

No expansion survives contact with players and EVE Online's Equinox expansion is no different. Not including the launch day patch, CCP has deployed patches each of the first three days. I'm a little burned out from blogging after making 16 posts covering the initial patch notes so I'm going to just merge the three days of changes and fixes into one post. Hopefully people find the post helpful.

Feature Changes

Login Rewards:

  • Until June 20th a special set of Expansion login rewards will be available for players who log on. Rewards include Sequence Binder Welcome package and components for SKINR Ship Personalization, up to 200K skill points, and boosters. (2024-06-12.1)

  • Equinox DLI Day 6 Alpha reward has been updated to Basic Cerebral Accelerator. (2024-06-14.1)
I was a bit caught off-guard by this change. I believe people logging in everyday starting today (14 June) can receive all the rewards.


The Upwell Haulers were a little too strong if they were fit for max tank (ignoring the missile bonus completely), so we’re rebalancing them by bringing their powergrid and CPU requirements closer to existing ships in their class, and giving them a huge fitting reduction bonus to medium missile launchers. (2024-06-12.1 & 2024-06-13.1)

  • Added a new role bonus to the Squall, Deluge and Torrent: 90% reduction in heavy missile launcher, heavy assault missile launcher and rapid light missile launcher powergrid and CPU fitting requirements.

  • Squall
    • Powergrid Reduced from 400 to 250
    • CPU Increased from 380 to 395
    • Base price adjusted so it no longer insures for more than the build cost.

  • Deluge
    • Powergrid Reduced from 430 to 190
    • CPU Reduced from 400 to 300
    • Agility increased from 0.51x to 0.59x

  • Torrent
    • Powergrid Reduced from 460 to 265
    • CPU Reduced from 420 to 305

  • It is now possible to put Standup Fighters, Upwell Structure ammo and bombs inside the infrastructure hold of the Upwell Hauling ships (Squall, Deluge, Torrent and Avalanche)

  • It is now possible to scoop deployables and structures directly to the infrastructure hold of the Upwell Hauling ships.

Further tweaks based on player feedback. (2024-06-13.1)

  • Carriers:
    • Conduit jump fuel cost per LY reduced from 21,000 to 3,000.
On the 13th, the developers rolled back a change which keeps players from putting Standup Fighters into infrastructure holds. The intention is to restore the functionality. Also, some powergrid was restored on the 13th. The numbers listed above contain both changes.

Missions & NPCs:

  • Adjusted the Infested/Shielded starbase escalation’s Forcefield and Control Tower Signature Radius from 1000m to 32000m so that all capital weapons (Such as T2 XL Torpedo’s and close-range heavy fighters will now be able to apply full damage). (2024-06-13.1)

  • Adjusted the Force field in the Infested/Shielded Starbase escalation to have less regeneration so Dreadnoughts with less optimal fittings can kill it. (2024-06-14.1)
    • Shield Hitpoints: 300,000 → 400,000.
    • Shield Regeneration Time: 60s → 120s.
    • Peak Shield Regeneration: 12,500 HP per second → 8,333 HP per second.
