On Tuesday 17 December, Veldspar and Spodumain rocks were removed from Null-Sec asteroid belts. At the same time, the quantity of ore for levels three, four and five asteroid Anomalies in Null-Sec were greatly reduced (33%, 50%, and 66% respectively). These changes will vastly lower the availability of some ores in Null-Sec.

This marks the beginning of the EVE resource distribution overhaul that will be taking place in the coming weeks and months. The element of mystery and sense of discovery when things change in New Eden without notice is something awesome to behold, therefore some of the adjustments planned will be sudden like the ones that occurred on 17 December. It is also understood that certain changes require precise communication in advance in order to give pilots enough time to prepare, so other more gradual plans that exist for changes will be communicated in this fashion.
