Amarr Foundation Day (2020)
|This article documents content that is no longer in the game|
Amarr Foundation Day (alternatively Foundation Day[note 1]) was a limited time event that ran between 7-10 August 2020, downtime to downtime. During this period, capsuleers could log in to earn fireworks, and SKINs for the Amarr Shuttle and Sigil. Omega clones could also collect 35k Skill Points and Amarr-themed clothing. This event featured celebrations in select systems of Amarr Empire high security space, and overlapped with a 3v3 Imperial Navy Slicer Abyssal Proving Grounds event.
From the announcement news article:
Amarr Foundation Day returns once more, so it's time to rejoice and celebrate the Empire and its people! There is a daily login event running until 11:00 UTC on 10 August where you can claim free rewards, as well as attend Amarr parades in selected systems, and there will even be an awesome player-run gathering in-game to check out!
By logging in daily during the Foundation Day event, you can claim free gifts such as Amarr-themed character apparel, Crown Imperial fireworks and Festival launcher, Khanid SKINs for the Amarr Shuttle and the Sigil, plus Skill Points to boost your training. Pilots in Omega Clone State will get bigger rewards, while also being able to claim the Alpha rewards too!
In addition, you can visit Foundation Day event sites and witness celebratory parades where there will also be daily challenges with Skill Point rewards. These will take place in the Amarr, Ardishapur Prime, Kador Prime, Khanid Prime, Kor-Azor Prime, Sarum Prime, and Tash-Murkon Prime systems.
What's more, there will be in-game player-run Foundation Day celebrations with a number of activities taking place, starting at 19:00 UTC on Sunday 9 August. Make sure you check out all the details on the EVE Online forums!

During the event, special event beacons with an Amarr fleet spawned. They were named after the titan of the fleet, and appeared as a beacon in space as "TES <titan name> Parade". New to the celebration events, each celebration fleet featured distinct liveries, corresponding to the house of the system they were based in (Jamyl the Liberator's fleet in Amarr had golden skins).
The systems where parades will take place are:
- Amarr (TES Jamyl the Liberator, ~550 km off of Amarr VI (Zorast) - Moon 2 - Theology Council Tribunal)
- Ardishapur Prime (TES Yonis the Pious, ~500 km off of Ardishapur Prime IX - Moon 17 - Ardishapur Family Bureau)
- Kador Prime (TES Uriam of Fiery Heart, ~525 km off of Kador Prime VI - Moon 1 - Kador Family Bureau)
- Khanid Prime (TES Garkeh of the Marches, ~340 km off of Khanid Prime V - Moon 1 - Khanid Innovation Factory)
- Kor-Azor Prime (TES Articio the Redeemed, ~550 km off of Kor-Azor Prime II - Kor-Azor Family Bureau)
- Sarum Prime (TES Merimeth the Serene, off of Sarum Prime VI - Moon 7 - Sarum Family Assemvly Plant)
- Tash-Murkon Prime (TES Catiz of Tash-Murkon Parade, ~325 km off of Tash-Murkon Prime V - Moon 5 - Tash-Murkon Family Bureau)
On 8 August 2020, following downtime, all pilots were given a task to shoot fireworks at a specific one of the titans listed. Pilots received 5k SP directly for their efforts.
Each titan had a description which provided background on their namesake. They can be accessed here.
Some fleets had a special "half-star" decal on the sides of dreadnoughts and titans. These seemed to be used on the fleets with liveries that had not yet been introduced as SKINs. No direct or lore explanation was given for these symbols.
