The idea was to do it in Trade hubs. I know of several pirate corps coming to attend this. Maybe you can pod travel and sit in station and have an alt or corp buddy with good sec status haul your inventory up?

J***FEST a week too early? Organized by CCP? Hell yeah.

Wouldn't this be better done in low-sec? Maybe a system like Tama, Amamake or Rancer? By exclusively choosing high-sec systems, you're preventing space bandits with -ve sec statuses, like me, from joining in on the fun :'(


I believe that's an inherent downside of becoming a criminal. Don't pretend it's unfair.

All I can say is: WoW

This event sounds like fun (not) but unfortunately it violates the EULA. Please move it to Bree or something.

Eve Uni will be making an appearance! We plan on holding some mini-classes (over eve voice), do some recruiting and we even have a little contest lined up (with not so little prizes!).


Do you have a special eve voice channel already for this?

Yeah, events like this seem better suited to other MMOs. Sharing and altruism inherently conflicts with EVE's established atmosphere. I can only hope someone was ganked to balance out the positive energy at one of these meets.

What is a "swap meet" ?


Its a social event where people trade old items. Think of this as a way to unload some old stuff in your hangers that you don't use anymore because you don't need those cruiser mods or something like that Laughing.

It's really just a great excuse to goof off and have a good time while trying to unload some old stuff.


1) Isn't this what the Market is for? I have items I'm no longer using, but someone else could use. So they give me money, and I give them gear.

2) All these CCP employees hanging out, and no one has even looked at my Petition yet? Glad to see these guys earning their paychecks. =)

Next Sunday, July 25 at 19:00 UTC I will be hosting a swap meet in Rens, Dodixie, and Amarr as there is no reason to crowd Jita up more than normal. Everyone is invited to fill up their industrials or freighters and fly out for some good times. This is a great opportunity for everyone to get together, have fun, and make new friends. Our buddies at EVE University and EVE Radio have some fun planned as well. So tune into EVE Radio during the week and come on down to see what EVE University has planned for you.

CCP Zymurgist is a (former ?) carebear :)
Asking cooperation between unknown people in Eve ?

lol

(note that there's no insult there, carebear is not an insult even in my way of playing the game... being a military player... Anyway, nice try)

This pretty much confirms what I've been thinking for awhile. After the release of Tyrannis and now this it is without a doubt imho Eve is going to way of WoW and will be one great big giant jerk fest carebear playground.

Just poking my head into this thread to say: Way Thukker guys!

I got more than I was hoping for, and some of it from proper pirates at that! Although I suspect one traded me back my own merchandise, the scoundrel.

Will be there next time, also shout out to Team Ghost Hook: We almost did it!

I've seen a few concord out and about but not really any ganking.... Good or bad? You decide!

18 plexes were given away in an Eve University riddle contest. I'm gonna have to do some hard thinking now because I used up all my best riddles Confused

They were good riddles, I missed the answers in chat I'll have to see if I can figure out the answers on my own.

Excellent times! Thank you to everybody who showed up! I hope some of you made a profit if not some fun trades or just had a good time hanging out with me and CCP Shadow in local. I'd love to do this again in the future or some other in-game event. Maybe next time I'll try to get more CCP to come out than just 2 of us =)

Hmmm, too bad I didn't know about this before today, when I logged in well after the event ended. Is CCP going to be having events like this? I can't remmeber the last time devs have just hung around and chatted. Also, I don't really see the merit to a swap meet, unless people are just giving away stuff.

Over all I had a blast going through the swaps and adverts we received over the course of Sunday, I would like to extend my thanks to CCP Zymurgist and CCP Shadow for coming along and chatting in locals/eve radio/event chans. Also a big thanks to Eve Uni for there class's and all (alas I couldn't attend the classes as was spinning the tunes on the radio).

As Zymurgist will im sure note behind the scenes at Eve Radio is Manic as Jita on a Sunday (or is it just me being mental Very Happy) but in the end a good time was had by all.

I dunno, but it is probably a good thing now that Incarna is not here yet, or this would give people a totally different idea Cool

This was fun, I never tried tracking 3 channels being flooded with ads before.
Also, I made more money salvaging wrecks than trading, but I had only melted snowballs to trade so...ugh

I wish I could get Claw and Zymurgist to show of their ships at the SRV races though...such fast ships...I guess they don't have the skills to take sharp turns with them.Laughing

Is there a list someplace that shows who won swag and plexes for putting in ad's on the eve radio site before/during the event?
