Ceres Trial Season 3

4 Oct, 2021 @00:00 UTC - 11 Oct, 2021 @23:59 UTC

Greetings Commanders! The Ceres Trial will return for Season 3. The Ceres Trial is for Commanders to test their skill and knowledge as they race to complete the objectives and land on Ceres Tarn to complete the trial.The trial is this:

Start on the AXI Olympus in Maia system [Maia A 2 A]

Once launched your time begins

You must complete the following objectives:

  1. Destroy a Cyclops

  2. Collect the heart

  3. Land at Ceres Tarn with the heart in your inventory where your time stops.


  • No Gibbing. (Instant kills of any Cyclops is not allowed and will be grounds for disqualification, and all hearts must be destroyed individually.)

  • Hyperdiction kills will not be credited.

  • No Premium Ammunition allowed of any kind.

  • No Advanced Missile Racks.

  • No Synthing of any kind. (including heat sinks)

  • No pre-scanning NHSSs before your time starts.

Special Considerations

If you encounter a braben tunnel (long blue tunnel) during your run, from the start of the drop until the start of the re-connected drop will be subtracted from your time

and from the start of your charge up time to the start of the re-connected charge up time will be subtracted from your time.

Hyperdictions will not be eligible for time subtraction. They are an inherent part of AX and will bring with it an aura of mystery and challenge to overcome to get the best time.

Hyperdiction kills are not permitted due to the rare instance of encountering a single Cyclops. This will bring with it an unfair advantage to any Commander to shorten their TTK compared to other Commanders, and so this will not be allowed.
