EVE Online: Turnur System Stellar Event Leaves Nearby Ships Unscathed

The Turnur system suffered a supernova event recently. Here’s what you need to know.

The increased stellar activity was clearly visible, and provoked caution from those with mortal concerns. But from the steadily decreasing EVE Online player count of capsuleers, this same harbinger of catastrophe provoked wanton abandon, as the low orbit of the star was littered with wrecks and corpses according to witnesses.

Curiously, the ships within close vicinity of the star itself during the explosion suffered no catastrophic damage; the bodies and twisted heaps of metal came from combat. The star is the greatest known source of power throughout the entire known galaxy. Interestingly, one exploded and was unable to destroy a single nearby ship. Frigates and cruisers, the smallest and most lightly armored EVE Online ships, somehow managed to cause more damage than an exploding star with mounted lasers, missiles and autocannons

What Is Turnur Like Now?

Reporters were fresh on the scene to investigate. After witnessing the devastation of the nearby orbiting structures, capsuleers have been somehow more motivated to explore the Turnur system. Some of the stations have suffered serious external damage from the event. One Turnur resident was in his suite during the entire explosion.

“It wasn’t really all that bad,” he quipped, loud enough to draw the support or disgust of passersby in the crowded station corridor.

The EVE Online stellar event in Turnur was an underwhelming light show of little consequence

As I walked with him to the exterior facing windows, his expression grew quite pale; the sight of the damage to the exterior of the structure had clearly been a shock.

“I was multiboxing,” he admitted, “so I honestly wasn’t paying much attention. Man, why’s everybody standing around? We gotta get outta here!” He disappeared in the crowd, seemingly headed toward an evacuation siren with the others.

EVE Online Turnur system stellar event curiously left all Minmatar station interiors with little noticeable change.

More attentive adventurous types are still flocking to the heliosphere, and visiting orbits around Turnur, curious about the new effects throughout the system, and eager to take advantage of a lack of normalcy. There are still safe places to dock in the Turnur system, but as always in EVE Online, danger really starts after you undock.
