On Sunday January 9, 2011 at 19:00 UTC I will be hosting a New Year Market in Amarr, Dodixie, and Rens. Everyone is invited to fill up their industrials or freighters and fly out for some gift giving, trading, and various other forums of celebration with all your EVE Online friends and enemies. If you attended my Swap Meet over the summer this will be very similar to that. Hope to see you there!

Join me now in-game in the chat channel New Year Market and look for me in local soon!

Way to diss Jita ;)

For those of us without experience with your Swap Meet, mind giving us a preview so we know what to bring?

Jita is nice, I don't dislike the place but holding an event and inviting more people to show up there just doesn't sound like the best idea. Plus this is a good opportunity for other people to try out the other trade hubs.

Just bring what you want. I you have a million target painters sitting around from when tried to corner the market back in '07 or whatever bring them along and hand them out a gifts. If you have something special or exciting like a faction ship or old snow ball launchers bring them down and trade for something else. A lot of people had some good time just trading normal everyday items back and forth for the fun of it over the summer.

I don't understand this at all. So if I bring a freighter full of stuff. I'm just giving it all away or what? I don't understand how this is fun if i'm just giving away all kinds of isk for nothing haha.. except to "celebrate the new year" ? I don't think so... I'm assuming that isn't the case though.. further explanation would be great.


EDIT: Ahh okay.. I just trade my items for other items? I see.

maybe think of it in your head as a game of "how much isk per m3 can i end up with here?"

sounds like a good way to get a bunch of gate campers setup with easy targets and its a lie to say that getting ganked for your goods on the way in or out is not going to happen because of the lack of a more strick policy on high sec ganking YARRRR!!

That's just part of it being a sandbox game. If you don't want to risk it, simply don't come. There will be gankers, but be smart about what you fly and what you bring. Much like they say with ships, only bring what you can afford to lose.

People said the same thing for the summer swap meet event I hosted. I don't recall seeing or hearing about any gate camps. In fact there were several pirates at the event. One even got podded trying to go home Twisted Evil. The key here is to plan ahead and shift your inventory before the event Idea.

I'll be there. It's going to be one hell of a weekend though so I cannot guarantee (my) sobriety or decency.

Sounds like a great idea and lots of fun; for all you naysayers: we really don't need to hear about how you think you're going to lose precious isk. It's a celebration, and if you don't like it, you are more than welcome to not go. Get in the spirit of the season and stop being so selfish for a few days.

Of course you can easily avoid the gank if you arrive in one of the systems early, and log off there or leave well after it's done.

I must be missing something here.

Your way of celebrating the new year is to go to trade hubs and trade things?

Isn't that how we 'celebrate' every day?

What is it about this game that either 1) attracts drinkers, or 2) turns them into drinkers?

Because you ever been at a gate camp with that person who's voice you just HATE to listen to? yeah, great way to have an excuse as you alpha their ceptor with a cane. "Sry, my bad. was drunk". Also it makes the gate camping go so much quicker.
