Email sent to you.

I look forward to attending if it is possible.

PS: Directions a must as I'm not a native New Englander. Boston is a mystery to me. All I know is I drive southward for about an 90 minutes and I'll hit the broadside of it.



You'll probably want to take 93 into the city. Driving around Boston isn't that difficult to deal with on the weekends and most garages charge a discount rate. Once we know the location I can suggest some nearby parking.

As a native new englander, let me give you a piece of advice. Park the car and don't drive. Seriously, a friend of mine who is a native of boston puts it like this:

To drive anywhere in Boston, you are required to break at least two traffic laws a trip just to get anywhere. Three if where you are going is somewhere that other people are also going.

The crosswalk signals have countdown timers that some people call "time till dead".

AND, it was designed incrementally from cow-paths so there are a lot of narrow roads, one ways, 5 street intersections, etc.

IF you must drive in Boston, use a GPS as finding your way through the maze via map is insane and you will miss streets so having something that can re-direct you when you **** up will be necessary.



Listen to Aelana!! If you don't know Boston and want to walk away liking Boston don't bring your car. There's tons of Park and Rides for the commuter rail into the city no matter which direction you're coming from. I've always done Boston on foot and it's a city that lends well to it. If anyone's taking the Providence to South Station Line let me know, we can talk nerdy to each other. http://www.mbta.com/schedules_and_maps/rail/

Sorry to imply that I could not make it "wherever". I've actually been to Boston a few times and have been quite successful in entry and exit. Coming from around Portsmouth, NH, means an easy travel down I95 for me.

However, that being said this;

... was epic. I'd have described NYC the same way but without the same aplomb.

I thought I was the only guy in Boston that plays EvE. Could never find anyone else that plays. THIS IS GREAT!

If anyone is coming down from New Hampshire, maybe we could meet up somewhere and carpool down. I am worried that parking is going to be limited. I and my friend will be coming.

I've responded to your evemail via eve gate. Of course it's like doing the Rens to Jita run with a small side trip to Khanid Prime. Laughing

Actually, for the New Hampshire/Northern MA/S Maine crew, I'd be happy to host a small little pre gathering in Exeter, NH starting around noonish the day of. Feel free to bring laptops or you can use one of my machines to do whatever it is you do in EVE. Will provide light snacks and homebrew. Then we could take the T down to Boston, or carpool. I think round trip on the T will be around 20 bucks. Ill check the schedule and provide more exact details later.

Send me an EVE Mail in game if interested.


Edit - The T leaves Exeter, at 4:30 arriving at Boston North Station at 5:30ish. The train back leaves at 11:00 pm and arrives back in Exeter a little after midnight. Might be just as well to carpool.

Something not covered: What about girlfriends/wives/tagalongs?

I'm usually inseparable from my wife.

It was covered on the invite page. 1 ticket per invite. I wish we had room, but the response was so great and we are tight on space.

Just double checking.

Actually my wife is not coming. I love her and a few hours of geeking out over a game is asking way too much of her. However several of us are carpooling and I heard mention of a friend coming along.

PS: I should point out that she did go with me to one player gathering held by DJ Zod in NYC. One geek out session per marriage is, me thinks, the limit. I just wish that went both ways as all the employees at Fashion bug (in 5 states) know my name as well as hers.

In that case I'm truly glad the missus is not coming along. The real horror for her was NOT two hours or so of endless geek talk that she was exposed to that day. What chilled her bones, to the point that she actually remembers that meet clearly, is the way you devoured buffalo wings.

It's a combination of wasting absolutely nothing in the shortest time possible mixed with a little bit of starving refugee. Kind of like that one vicious character in mortal kombat whose fatality maneuver sucked in her opponent and spat out bones.

I am still quite impressed.

I have to put in an obligatory whine about how this was done for those of us who a) don't have smartphones, b) involve ourselves in EVE directly more than twitter and external gaming sites, and c) were compulsively checking this very forum for an announcement about a PAX gathering.

No, I'm not mad. I'm sad. Crying or Very sad Gonna go have some cheese and wine now. Maybe I'll bring some to PAX.

I'm sorry you see things this way.

I noticed the announcement in the log in news. I log in only a couple of times per week; I do not on a smart phone; I avoid the Eve Forums simply because there is little I find interesting; I can't stand twitter/facebook as I think it encourages are fruitless "Me! Me! Me!" neurosis in our culture; most external gaming sites give me little information that I seek but instead spend their time being as populist as any craptastical media outlet. (Hmmmm.... perhaps I should become the first Technophile Luddite.)

I actually did follow the link about "alternative means" and tbh doesn't mean a hill of beans to me. It's a cute thing for what it is worth and if CCP was giving it a try big woohoo. But to think it creates some sort of exclusivity - I'm breathing typing proof it does not.

Just wanted to post and say thanks to CCP Daishi and CCP Games for the great meetup this evening. Everyone seemed to have tons of fun and two hours of free beer helped that! Hope to see more get-togethers in the future in Boston and other cities.

Thanks again to CCP and everyone there!

Had a good time.

Face time usually involves facing a great number of cliches. As an example, most of us guys fit our cliches - at least in appearance and manners. The many Eve women present however were not very cliche at all - and quite lovely. But I've got Athre as an example so I shouldn't be too surprised that attractive women play Eve.

Thanks, Daishi for the great party!
