Templar Manhunt Event:
Earn rewards and test-drive exclusive dropsuits
May 24 Reported by CCP Eterne
Defy the Amarr Empire as a rebellious Templar renegade, or destroy the rebels to win items, dropsuits, and more in the Templar Manhunt event!
The very first immortal clone soldiers, the Templars once served as the star-spanning Amarr theocracy's imperial guard. Now, many of the Templars have gone rogue to seek freedom and fortune in the endless wars of DUST 514®.
From Friday, 31 May, through Sunday, 2 June, you can either become a Templar renegade or hunt them down to earn awesome rewards.
As a Templar, you must play at least 20 public matches (instant battles only) during the event and earn a total of 20.000 skill points. Once you do, you'll receive 300 copies each of the Logistics, Heavy, and Assault models of Amarr Advanced ISK Dropsuits.
You’ll also be the first to test-drive three upcoming Amarr Templar Dropsuits and three Amarr Templar weapons, all of which are exclusive to the EVE Online® Second Decade Collector’s Edition.
We're only sending out so many Templars. The sooner you apply, the better your chances to test out these awesome items and get the Advanced ISK suits!
If you can't be a Templar (or can't abide traitors to the Empress), strike it rich as a Templar Hunter instead. All players who rack up three confirmed Templar kills in public matches during the event will get 2,500,000 ISK.
Get ready to fight for freedom or test your mettle against the original immortals. Riches, weapons, and exclusive sneak previews await!
Additonally, PlayStation'ers who join this event in game and then return to this thread to share their experience will be granted an extra bonus to be named later. Gratitude to CCP, SCEA andthe MVP Program!
We have now completed gathering the PSN IDs of those participating in this forum thread. We'll post another update here when we've sent out the extra bonus prize. This will be done from within the Dust 514 game and it will be automatically added to your inventory. More details soon!
Here's another update (posted before the other update):
Due to technical issues from this weekend, the Templar Manhunt event was adversely impacted. Here's an update on the status of the Templar Manhunt:
- It will end during downtime today
- Your Templar characters will be removed from your account if you were chosen to be a Templar
We realize that the server outage over the weekend has made participation in the event difficult and thus preventing players from reaching their event reward goals as templars/hunters. To rectify this, we are offerring the following to players who participated in the event:
- All Templar players will receive their event rewards
- All players who scored at least one Templar kill from downtime Saturday June 1 through downtime on June 4 will qualify for the Templar hunter reward
We also received a lot of good feedback about the event itself (i.e. Templars should get some starting ISK, and slightly higher starting skill points), and will be updating the design of the event for the future. It is our goal to host another similar event for the player community in the near future and we would like to thank those who have participated in this event and hope to see you again soon.
This is sure to be a great event and a fun weekend regardless of whether you are the hunter or the hunted. Definitely sign up to be a Templar if you're into the game. That sign up thread is getting *very* lengthy though (53 pages currently)-- Good luck to those who apply!
You know I'll be there . It should be fun for everyone!
I love these events organized by CCP. It's fun how they tie it to the lore of EVE so you get to learn some of it at the same time.
I still remember the first time I saw the crashed titan during the battle for Caldari Prime . It shows how the world of EVE is crafted with care.
