EVE Vegas 2012 – Coming in October May 11, 2012

Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, EVE Online, In Person.

EVE Online fans will return to Las Vegas again this year in an event that has been going on sporadically (to my knowledge) since 2009.

EVE Vegas 2012 – Titan not included

Full details, including links, prices, forum thread pointer, and such are at the official EVE Vegas web site.

The highlights of the event are:

  • A two day event made for fans, by fans
  • Officially sanctioned by CCP but without control over content
  • EVE player personalities and CCP Devs presenting together on one stage
  • An open bar reception to meet your alliance mates and other random eve players
  • Free swag
  • at least 4 different development teams will be represented talking about the state of the game

The event will take place at the Paris Las Vegas hotel October 5-7.  The event price is $250 and there are reasonably priced rooms at Paris and the adjoining Bally’s hotels.

Vegas is close by, at least for me, so this is tempting.

Vegas is about a 4 hour drive for me, and even though I don’t play EVE anymore, I still follow it and would be quite tempted to attend this also.

Tempted to fly out just to see how many people I can get to kill themselves IRL by getting drunk and talking about EVE.

@pkudude99 – It is actually kind of a painful drive from Silicon Valley. It is a 9 hour trek where you basically drive almost all the way to LA and then turn left. Nothing a couple of good audio books couldn’t help you get through, but it makes the short, cheap, and regular flights out of SJC look pretty attractive.

I like how Google helpfully tells me that it would take me about 7 days to walk there, and about 3 by bicycle, but neglects to show my corpse surrounded by vultures in the Mojave Desert along the way.

And when I select the public transit option, it just makes a dismissive noise.

@SynCaine – I knew somebody would have to go there.

I know I have made people want to kill themselves by talking about EVE… but that isn’t quite the same thing.

Hmm, I live up in Reno. Very tempting indeed. Where abouts are your where…abouts?


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
