Developer Invastion (December 16, 18, and 20): During these days, CCP themselves will enter the game as either allies or targets. For a few hours, teams of 4-6 developers will fight in Other Contract matches against players. Those who fight with or against the developers will earn Double SP and Double ISK rewards.
Weapon Trials: Rifle Round Up (December 18-25): Using a Standard level of either the Combat Rifle or Rail Rifle during matches i this even (both weapons are new in the Uprising 1.7 release) players will receive one Prototype Rifle of the same type of weapon for every 10 kills they score.
The 12 Days of DUST (December 25 - January 5): Players will receive 12 bonus items just for logging in and winning a single match each day during the event. These will range from rare dropsuits, powerful weapons, and specialized equipment. However, each offer is good for one day only and players must log in before 11:00 UTC each day to win and redeem them.
