As this post goes live I am probably standing in line at the airport hoping that Southwest has their act together when it comes to my flight to Las Vegas. That flight is taking me to my third year at EVE Vegas.
Once there I will likely be hobnobbing with the usual crowd of bloggers, podcasters, and other EVE Online media types who are, honestly, about the only people who know me there. To my knowledge I will be the only one from my corp to attend and last year there was only one other pilot from my alliance in attendance, so prospects there are low. Not that they would know me. I am horrible at actually doing things with my own corp or alliance.
Pilots of the Imperium will be out in force though, and I hope to spot a few fellow Reavers.
Events at EVE Vegas include the usual company presentations… I expect we’ll get some new details about the Life Blood expansion coming later this month…, promotions for other CCP products, player presentations, the Saturday night party, and a special screening of Blade Runner 2049 with proceeds going to the Able Gamers charity.
There is a dev post up about the event with further details.
Those attending the event are also eligible for some discounts, which is probably a good thing as Vegas is not a cheap date. It was $13 for a Jack and Coke at the Heart Bar last year.
Anyway, I am off to Vegas to see what I shall see.
