    New Eden is a big place, and getting from one end to the other can be a pain. This weekend we’ve got a special for all of you who don’t like waiting around for a dropship to pick you up. From Friday, June 6th at 5pm PDT until Monday, June 9th at 5pm PDT all players will get free access to a reusable glider pad and the Cobra R-54 LGV. Both items will also be on sale for 10% off of their regular Red Bean price.

    I suppose giving everyone a universal 25% move speed bonus was hoping for too much? And here when I read the title I was thinking of crazy chaos.

    Whoa, good news. I remember how excited I was when I started gathering resources to get enough beta crystite for my first bike (actually, I only have just that bike, but now I have enough money to buy one or even craft one - back then it was Commander Founder only, I believe).

    I believe it will be nice for new players, it may create that feeling of "how could I have played this game for so long without one of these?" and up the sales (or could spoil them to the point they rage quit seeing the work needed to get one, specially those who don't have an international credit card or don't want to spend money to afford one)

    Good move, :red5:, good move.

    Maybe is it time for some community racing events?

    Awww... man. I hope the cy weekend makes its way back soon, I need to salvage.

    On the other hand, I am glad to see some a new weekend type. Good idea R5.

    I highly approve of this! I'm happy for the newer players that don't yet have a LGV. Nice one R:red5: :)

    Cue conspiracy theories about red5 doing something evil with salvaging, and then making this weekend to pull more players into their trap.

    I like the idea of a mobility weekend, because it benefits newer players while not messing with the economy like some of the other boost weekends (having a massive injection of crystite every month from salvaging on the weekend can't be good for stable markets)

    I too am hoping for a crystite weekend before the smaller inventory limits kick in.
    Anyone in red5 able to tell us if that is upcoming in the patch or not ?

    We need to know if CY weekends are removed, or when the regularly scheduled CY weekend will return.

    You guys are terrible for plan wrecking...
