Commemorate Caldari Union Day
Caldari State Workers Union Day is on 4 September, and celebrations run now through to 8 September! Union Day is an important event in the calendar of the Caldari State and is mandated by the Chief Executive Panel (CEP) throughout all State-controlled regions. Representing the strength of the Union and the workers who make up the populace, this day also serves as a convenient time for the eight largest megacorporations to hold their annual Industrial Planning Summit. Capsuleer celebrations this year will feature daily gifts, new lore monuments, mining blitz sites, and plenty more. There are even deals on celebratory SKINs including the temporary return of the popular State Police SKIN, now on more ships than ever before!
For the latest on Caldari matters, stay tuned for a highly anticipated address from the newly selected leader of the State, Akimaka Saraki, which is expected to be delivered within the next few weeks.
Daily gifts and challenges
There’s lots to get involved in for Caldari Union Day. By logging in each day of the event you’ll receive rewards ranging from SKINs to pilot clothing and boosters. There’s even up to 25,000 free Skill Points available for Omega players.
You can also get a Caldari Union Day Expert System, giving you everything you need to experience the life of a loyal Caldari pilot. Don’t forget that upgrading at any point during the event will unlock any Omega rewards you might have missed!
As with previous events, there will be a warp speed bonus across Caldari space during the celebrations. This is great for travelling around New Eden, but even better if you’re looking to visit the Titan parades. The following corporations will be showcasing the might of their private militaries so be sure to pay them a visit and fire off some fireworks to receive a reward.
- Nugoeihuvi Corporation – Josameto
- Lai Dai Corporation – Airkio
- Sukuuvestaa Corporation - Saisio
- Kalaakiota Corporation – Sobaseki
- Wiyrkomi Corporation – Annaro
- Ishukone Corporation – Malkalen
- Hyasyoda Corporation - Suroken
- CBD Corporation – Muvolailen
New lore monuments
Two new lore monuments are being constructed in time for Caldari Union Day. One such is the Landfall Kutuoto Miru Orbital Center in New Caldari. The facility is dedicated to the teachings of Kutuoto Miru, the Caldari philosophy that seeks to align the mind and body. Loosely translated to "mind tool," Kutuoto Miru encompasses a range of disciplines designed to help practitioners maximize their focus, equanimity, and mental fortitude.
You can also visit the Urlen II Provist Riots Memorial to pay your respects to the lives of State citizens lost at the hands of terrorists in YC110. Anti-Gallente riots took place across Caldari space following a State assault on the contested world of Caldari Prime. While most incidents resulted in relatively few casualties, the riots in the underground industrial colonies of Urlen II resulted in the deaths of at least 1,000 State citizens, the vast majority of whom were members of the ethnic Gallente communities on that world.
State military stockpile mining blitz
For Capsuleers interested in a mining expedition, Mining Blitz sites return across the constellations of Umamon, Okomon, and Santenpaa. Visit these sites to support the State Military Stockpile, earning LP to spend on SKINs and more. Three new ships are being added to the list of SKINs available this year: the Griffin, Corax, and Ferox.
2v2 Caldari battlecruiser proving ground
Show your prowess with missiles and blasters in a 2v2 T1 battlecruiser Proving Ground. This PvP event comes with a repeatable challenge refunding you 20m ISK, helping cover your losses while you battle your way to the top of the leaderboards in a Drake, Ferox, or Naga.
