What is W-Space?
W-Space refers to Wormhole Space as opposed to K-Space which refers to Known Space. Known Space is any space that can be seen using the in-game map - that includes all of High Sec, Low Sec and Null Sec.
W-Space can only be accessed through Cosmic Signatures called Wormholes.
There is no CONCORD presence, no stations to dock in, and no conventional NPC presence.
Instead, we have rats called Sleepers. All W-Space is -1.0 security status: no security penalties are incurred on a player that attacks another player unprovoked.
As a result, EVE University operates on an NBSI (Not Blue Shoot It) rule of engagement while we are in W-Space.
There is also no "Local" chat in W-Space. There are also no belts to mine - for mining you have to warp to Ore Anomalies. There is also no ice to be mined in W-Space.
What the campus is about
The Wormhole Campus is not a traditional UNI “event”. Don't expect to have your hand held. The WHC allows you to play EVE as you want and know you have friends nearby when needed.
- Be a member of EVE University
- Have the Freshman title
- Have Cloaking to L4
- Recommended Astrometrics to L3
- Recommended any racial Battlecruiser skill to L3
- Recommended able to fit a full Tech 2 tank
- Be willing to scan (a lot)
Programs run by the WHC
- Loot Sheet - The Campus will buy all Blue loot, PVP loot, Ore, Gas and PI from you, if you wish.
- SRP - The campus run a doctrine ship replacement program.
What you can do in campus
- Combat Anomalies
- Ore Mining (in Ore Anomalies)
- Gas Harvesting (in Gas Cosmic Signature sites)
- Planetary Industry
- Small gang roams
- Wormhole Camping
- Solo roams/engagements
A fair number of us like to Carebear and a fair number like to do PvP - others like to do both.
Living in W-Space
Living in W-Space is a lot different then living in K-Space.
The most notable difference is that there are no Stations, only Citadels, where you can dock your ship.
What we do have are various Upwell structures that the University has anchored and made available to the campers.
We currently have some Fortizars, a some of Athanors and a Azbel, which you can use for moon mining/reprocessing and production.
The campus also has a selection of communal ships: T1 scanning frigates, haulers, rollers, some combat ships, etc.
Lowering the Risk
Doing anything in W-Space comes with an inherent risk attached to it, but there are many tools and techniques to reduce them.
- D-Scan (learn to love it)
- Probing (learn to love it)
- Ship naming convention
- Be Aligned if in doubt
- Be on Mumble
It is extremely hard to list our neighbours as they change every day.
However, any wormhole dwellers we find should not be taken lightly.
They most likely have a fair amount of experience in W-Space and most likely fly very expensive ships.
Common POS Hangar
- Take only what you need
- Put it back ;)
Rules regarding Alts
There are a fair number of extra rules regarding Alts. These have been put in place to ensure that the campus does not break the Neutrality of EVE-University and to ensure that the maximum number of people can enjoy the campus, not just a handful of pilots.
(The teacher should refer to the Alt Rules found here)
