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!!


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.
well whats new with that your logs never see anything =)

Darn. If only I had stuff to trade.

Unfortuneately, I sold most of my stuff to get a Drake. NOW, however, I can start earning plenty of money to get stuff to trade next year... unless someone wants to trade for the new ship that just came out, the Sansha one, the one with the codebreaker, whatever it was called.

I have a fine selection of slaves for sale, exotic slaves, basic slaves, slave hounds, miniature slave hounds, and of course slavers to keep them in line. even a few well caged alphas. I do believe this is the event I've been saving up for.n I will be heading for Amarr.

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


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


Most people smart enough to play Eve are also smart enough to appreciate the state of the world today, and where it's heading in the next few decades.

Knowing that, I can't help but drink.

I do not mean to bash your celebration or your ideal, But it seems like the only reason to come would be to meet the CCP staff and see you all get drunk. I mean... That's enough reason for me to come so I'll be there. But as far as the concept itself...


Trade is just something everyone can participate in and gives you an excuse to sit around and chat with us. Several players made a profit last event and even those who didn't hopefully had a good time!

I cant see this as anything other than an invitation to all pirates to have a blast before the start of Hulkageddon. A great time to try out that fit, make sure those arms are fast enough and to practice on various ship types. I wonder if this was suggested by a gank friendly service provider not dissimilar to those who are members of the Orphanage.

I'm based in Rens anyway so all my stuff is already there. Ha!

I'm quite noobish though, so I doubt I have anything that anyone else would want.

I would jsut like to bash in and reply to all those that say this is going to be a gank-fest.
yeah, because its not like there are freighters coming in and out of trade hubs any other day. ganking is as feasable any other day as in that. sure since more people wil lbe trading there will be more targets, but you can get ganked any day. besides, you still need a lot of people to gank a freighter, and if hes carrying low-isk items you wont suceed in doing anything.

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.

How will I "trade" or give gifts? Just click on random station guests and give random items?

How do we get to chat with CCP folks? One-time channel? (praying its not local?)

He does have a point...you will have the usual Dodixie gankers come out..if you are stupid enough to move what you want to trade the day of..then don't get mad...Of course the trading part isn't something I am interested in. I just want to sit around and BS with the dev crew..I personally will not be bringing anything as I have a bunch of crap I will be randomly trading to people in the station with no real want for anything back..Also Jump Clones are wonderful for evading the camps.

Your not kidding, it sure would be nice if the insurance Co. would void insured ships involved in ganking others in Hi-Sec, this would curtail a lot of the problems

As pointed out in my prev post, as long as the gank ship is insured it's a no-lose situation for them and they get another ship to add to their killboard

As for the event... sounds like fun.

Words of wiz, get your stuff there early (like the day before)and move your new purchases out at a less convienient time for the gankers, duh! I for one will be clone jumping between Jita And Dod without driving as I intend to be drinking toooooooo :P

I keep rereading the post but for players who haven't traveled much yet, there's nothing solid about where to be in those areas. A bookmark or more specific details for the less traveled who'd like to attempt to survive the trip out would be appreciated.

We will be chatting in local Laughing

For trading I will be setting up a channel just for the event. I'll post it in here and shout it out in local once I come up with the name of the channel. That is where most of the trading went down over the summer.

...A Celebration, should be something which is Far different and rare, Not something which occurs every single day, in a system which is meant to specifically handle that, every single day. It's not a celebration, it's simply another day in a trade hub with more people to lag up the system.

Spawn a fleet of easy to kill Sansha ships and let everyone go at it for 6 hours. (Like all over the system in belts at moons everywhere so everyone can get something (replace all the rats with 0.0 faction true Sansha ships for the day) You know, Something "Unique". To Start the New year of with a bang and remembrance. (This idea goes well with the incursion expansion line also, so its a win win for you CCP as an advertising method as well)

...


THIS!

And mayben a way to re-freeze those melted snowballs, so I can dust off my old snowball launcher and go to battle?

For a New Years version of this maybe a special rocket that bursts in a nice display of fireworks? (or maybe force all missiles/rockets to this for a couple of hours... Twisted Evil )
