As Fanfest 2011 approaches we are offering players the opportunity to win a fantastic VIP tour of the CCP offices in Reykjavik. As always, this tour will be conducted by our CEO, Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, with the winner receiving a tour of all departments, lunch with the Devs and a bunch of cool goodies will be provided to the winner. The tour will be held on Wednesday, March 23 from approximately 10:30 to 13:00 UTC.

Our annual office tour is part of the Fanfest drive for charity and this year we are proud to support Get Well Gamers, a charity formed in 2001, with the goal of bringing video game systems and games to children's hospitals.

You can submit a bid for the chance to win this tour by sending an e-mail to with the amount that you would like to bid. The minimum starting bid is $1,000 and the closing date for bids is 23:59 UTC on Tuesday, 8 March, 2011. The winner will be contacted by mail on Wednesday, March 9, 2011.

I must have missed this one earlier...

Aside from the one time cash bids are you planning on allowing plex donations for this charity drive as well?

I think it's one of those really special VIP things. With that in mind, real money is probably the only way to pay for this.

I think opening up the opportunit for none bidders ( those who have small wallets ) to atleast donate via EVE by use of PLEX wouldn't be such a bad idea.

There are actually people out there who still want to donate to a good cause once in a while and the opportunity to use a PLEX towards that goal can be just a little extra from the community.

Maybe a single player feels like giving a PLEX donation or maybe some entity even doing it on a regular basis. Or tie it into an ingame invent where part of the proceeds would go towards that charity.
A small corp that has a special cookyjar where members can drop in a bit if they want to and when the goal is reached a PLEX is aquired to be donated out of name of the Corp.

Idea's enough.

For $1,000 which is £615.00 for me i would want a week there. that is the minimum bid as well. its good its for charity but its out of reach for alot of people. I donate to charity every month but that is like nearly 2 weeks wages

To much unless you are a rich bugger

Thank you all for your feedback and perhaps donations of PLEX are something that we will consider for the future.

This years office tour has been won with a donation well in excess of the minimum bid. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who submitted a bid but, alas, there can only be one winner.
