Eve Vegas 2013


Eve Vegas 2013 - October 18-20th 2013

Already?  Oh yes.  Ten months away.  Fanfest is not even here yet, but prepare.  Its not in Iceland its in Las Vegas again.  Another chance to have some fun with cheaper prices and more options then before.

The Forum Thread is up.
Hello there, are you sober yet? It's been a couple months and in making sure we fulfill our commitents to casino accounting we are finalizng the contract for EveVegas 2013. As voted in by a very large majority at EveVegas 2013 we are moving to the Rio where they are offering us their suites for $99 (their website is showing a price of $200 right now so thats a good deal) more excitiing for you as an attendee we are negioating for 10 high roller experiences, limos, suites and diamond status packages. 
In addition I'm trying to see what we can do to mix things up this year and make eve vegas 2013 even better than 2012. This includes:1. Workshops, instead of just listening to people talk at you break off into high/low/null sec rooms to talk with the devs in charge of your player experience about their plans and your input2. More prizes, working hard this year to get more sponsors involved3. A bigger better reception, still working the details on this so I don't want to promise something we can't deliver.
I'm currently looking at the weekend of Oct 18-20, 2013 and hope to have more news to share in the near future. 
Update: Contract signed, more details to come.

From Facebook:

The contract is signed, here are some details
Suite at the Rio $99 a night (it's an all suite hotel)Free internetNight club passes 
I have lots of diamond cards, limo rides and suites to give away.
Also got a good discount on food and beverage this year so we can afford to give you more for your dollar!
Speaking of, we are in talks now for some big supirses but I won't disclose any details until its firmed up.. no need to let you down if something can't happen!
In convention space news we got the main ballroom with a built in stage as well as 3 break out rooms. This idea this year is to break up the talks with break out rooms divided into high sec/low sec/null sec where you can talk back to the devs and work up new ideas.
More to come! 
Just letting people get their planning started.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
