We keep sticking them up, you keep knocking them down. The ever-popular Wormholes have been entertaining us for months now so we thought we’d begin to bring you a monthly roundup of all the action so that existing pilots can reminisce, and rookie pilots can get a taste of what they're missing out on.

What follows is a rundown of all of June’s Wormholes so far, each accompanied by a video from ace streamer SalsaKetchup who has been heroically documenting the events right from the very beginning.

It’s our intention to create a permanent record of EVE: Valkyrie’s Wormhole events so keep coming back and we’ll keep you posted.

After the round-up, we’ll let you know all about this week’s wonderful Wormhole event.

Week 16 – Instant Death (June 2-4)

Wormhole: 45B/225-51JP5

Map: Fire Forge

Ship loadout: Maelstrom, Aegis

Game type: Team Deathmatch

Details: This fiercely fought wormhole came with both friendly fire and zero shields. No room for error here with rapid demise being a signature dish served frequently. The results were often chaotic, but enormous fun.

Wormholes are quite a rollercoaster, aren’t they? Having taken a look back at June’s adventures beyond the conduit, allow us to slip back into Valkyrie character and introduce you to this week’s exciting event.

Attention Pilots! Assemble at Planet Esmes III in the Sinq Laison Region, Immediately!

Maps Necropolis-hi-res A Wormhole event is occurring near the galactic graveyard known as the Necropolis in the Sinq Laison region of New Eden. 

Schism forces have been intercepted at the site of the Wormhole and it is our understanding their intentions are to gain control of this strategically important trading space.

Wormhole 01A/469-53LU5 presents us with a challenging and distorted version of the Necropolis, not least because it is densely packed with mines that can destroy a ship on contact.

This is not a mission for the faint hearted. The battle to secure the three control points beyond the conduit will be fierce and unrelenting.

If your specialism is in piloting Wraiths, Spectres or Banshees, you are required to report head to Esmes II without hesitation.

Good luck out there!
