Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was about the location. Planet Hollywood has hosted Eve Vegas for the last three years. It is not my favorite hotel by any means but it is an excellent venue. I spend a lot of time walking through the various hotels. It is fun to see what they stick in the corners.


What Planet Hollywood offers a venue like Eve Vegas is dining options. There is a mall that wraps around Planet Hollywood's casino called the Miracle Mile shops. There are a ton of dining options in there as well as several casual dining options around the front of Planet Hollywood. 

This is more than many casinos. Most balance on a theme and have a limited amount of space due to the size. A larger casino, such as Caesars is more focused on high rollers and has higher dollar value. While the Rio, off the strip, has a very limited number of places to eat.

Planet Hollywood wins because of the food. It allows all budgets to easily get things between events and that is a crucial thing that the Eve Vegas would lose if it moved to the Linq. 

Food in Vegas is no longer cheap. You can find a decent priced meal but you won't just trip over it. I watched my buffet price double between Friday and Saturday. As in 24 dollars one day to 40 the next. The same buffet but different days. Vegas nickles and dimes you and we must be conscious of giving people a flexible solution to their budgetary needs.

Planet Hollywood is roughly in the center of the strip. The year that Eve Vegas was at the Rio, getting to the strip was a pain. This made entertainment and other dining options harder. Eve Vegas is a vacation for many people. They want to cram in as much as possible. Allowing easy access allows more people to have greater value from their time. That increased value rolls to higher chances of players coming to another Eve Vegas.

I managed to have a twenty minute conversation with the ladies from the company running the store. I also made some promises that I need to follow up to getting them information gathered from the players in the past about what they want to see in the Eve Store.

There was a key chain for example. I was both pleased and not. A key chain! Finally! It was an archon. I did not want it. But I did buy it. I purchased it to put my money where my mouth as been. I've wanted a key chain and I've wanted a mug. But what I wanted as a simple, rectangular key chain that said EVE on it. I purchased this second prize because I wanted to support the store. It became quite a passion of mine and I do believe in supporting what I want to see happen.

I also understand why they did the wrist bands. The previous years have had  large number of people that attend without paying. But the request to wear a shoddy paper wrist band for two days and the nasty, nasty staff from the hotel that checked them needs to be refined.

I attended exactly one talk and that was Keskora Yaari's Wormhole from Scratch. She was amazing. I attended no roundtable. While I felt strange without my notebook and pen I was too detached from events and caught in an emotional storm to do much more. For me, healing will take some time. For everyone else, fill out your survey and tell them what you want. I don't care for the Halloween weekend and tie ins. Others may have loved it and found ti a huge added value. No one knows if you don't say and when someone gives you a place to notify them, use it.

  4. Năm 2016, các công ty xổ số khu vực miền Nam thu được 66.679 tỷ đồng. Vietlott tiếp tục bị xổ số truyền thống phản ánh các vấn đề liên quan đến phát hành, cơ cấu.

    Sáng 17/1, Hội đồng Xổ số Kiến thiết (XSKT) khu vực miền Nam tổ chức hội nghị lần 109 tại Sóc Trăng. Lãnh đạo 21 doanh nghiệp xổ số từ Lâm Đồng đến Cà Mau cùng đại diện Công ty Xổ số Điện toán Việt Nam (Vietlott) tham dự.


    Tổng doanh thu đạt gần 66.700 tỷ đồng

    Theo Hội đồng xsmb thu 2 khu vực miền Nam, năm 2016, các doanh nghiệp XSKT phát hành được trên 856 triệu vé, mệnh giá 10.000 đồng một vé. Tổng doanh thu tiêu thụ của khu vực đạt 66.679 tỷ đồng, tăng trên 8% so với 2015.


    Từ doanh thu đạt được, 21 công ty XSKT chi đến 32.087 tỷ để trả thưởng, nộp ngân sách 22.348 tỷ và lợi nhuận trước thuế 8.789 tỷ đồng.

    Ngoài 21 công ty xổ số truyền thống, từ năm 2014, Vietlott trở thành thành viên 22 của Hội đồng XSKT miền Nam. Hiện doanh nghiệp này đã mở thị trường tại 12 tỉnh thành xstth thu 2 và đạt doanh thu năm 2016 là 1.597 tỷ đồng.


    Từ đầu, Vietlott đã tìm cách tránh cạnh tranh trực tiếp

    Đáp lại những lời "tố" từ lãnh đạo các công ty XSKT, ông Nguyễn Thanh Đạm, Phó tổng giám đốc Vietlott, khẳng định doanh nghiệp không có chủ trương cho đại lý in sẵn để bán sai địa bàn. Ngay từ đầu, doanh nghiệp đã tìm cách tránh cạnh tranh trực tiếp với vé truyền thống mà cụ thể là hoa hồng đại lý chỉ 8%, trong khi vé truyền thống đến 15%.


    "Vietlott và các công ty xổ số truyền thống đều phát hành thông qua đại lý. Đại lý thì mình có hợp đồng ràng buộc rõ ràng, còn người bán dạo không ký hợp đồng thì làm sao quản lý được", ông Đạm chia sẻ.


    Theo ông Đạm, thời gian qua, Vietlott đã có văn bản gửi cho các tỉnh, thành để địa phương phối hợp chấn chỉnh hoạt động xổ số, trong đó có vé điện toán. Các địa phương đã thành lập đoàn kiểm tra, xử lý những người tự ý đưa vé điện toán về bán nên doanh thu của công ty đang giảm từ 30 tỷ xuống hơn 10 tỷ đồng/ngày.


    =>> có thể các bạn quan tâm tới: Tiền đâu nâng giải độc đắc xổ số kiến thiết lên 12 tỷ?

    "Doanh thu giảm cho thấy các địa phương đã có sự phối hợp chặt chẽ với chúng tôi. Vietlott chỉ là doanh nghiệp chứ không phải là cơ quan quản lý Nhà nước thì làm sao chúng tôi bắt phạt người này, người kia được", ông Đạm nói.


    Kết thúc hội nghị, ông Nguyễn Hoàng Dương, Phó vụ trưởng Vụ Tài chính các ngân hàng và tổ chức tài chính (Bộ Tài chính), nói rằng doanh nghiệp xổ số điện toán chỉ quản lý được đại lý và nơi gắn thiết bị đầu cuối, còn người mua mang về làm gì, bán lại cho ai thì rất khó kiểm soát.

    "Giống như người dân đi chợ, họ mua rau và thịt về xào hay kho thì làm sao người bán biết được", ông Dương nêu quan điểm.

  6. I've seen a couple of other events at other places, but this was my first time in here. It was amazing! Great LA event venues, it's smaller than those bigger places but it is still a fair sized venue. Food was great and I think it's recently renovated - it didn't seem old or anything.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
