CMDR Thauma circumnavigated the galaxy in a fleet carrier. Write up on Massively OP and Reddit.

The Horizons fold down has happened, and accounts who previously owned horizons now have a new paintjob for every ship, fighter, and srv. (Apparently the paint not working on PS4?)

Cqc seems to be broken, too.

And to top it off, the game is on steam sale for 75% off until November 2. 

Squad Update:  All is quiet on the front, or quiet before the storm?

In Game News:

The Federation congress has voted to grant sanctuary to the Marlinist immigrants.

The next day Imperator Hadrian Augustus Duval was wounded in an assassination attempt.

NMLA claims responsability, It happened inside the headquarters of Nova Imperium, which firmly stands against NMLA in their statement.

Hadrian Duval is the illegitimate grandson of Emperor Hengist. His father, the late Commander Hector Jansen, was the result of a secret liaison with a household slave. Although disowned by the Imperial Family, Hadrian claims to be a rightful heir to the throne.

Interesting they are hitting currently not-in-power Duvals, eh?  Curious...

Both CGs have completed and for the first time in several weeks we don’t have a new one directly replacing it.

The delivery CG finished in Tier 3, providing supplies to sustain the Marlinist populations in the LTT 3607, Charunder and Ennead systems until federal support comes in.

The combat CG to protect the delivery ships also finished just shy of tier 4.

Collect rewards way out at Fox Enterprise in LFT 625.

Halloween event!

Firstly, there’s new livery stuffs. Buy them and put them on your ship if you want to be sufficiently spooooooky!

A few days ago some coded messages began to trickle out on twitter.

These turn out to contain messages encoded in binary, but it takes days for all the pictures to come out and we get the full message.

Shortly thereafter we get an audio transmission.


And then a scripted Halloween special video from the CMs. (Great job, guys)

And now for those who aren’t going out on their own to find it, on to the rest of what’s been found!
