Oh hey, didn't see this thread.

This was my second fanfest, and while last year was fantastic, this year was even better. Everyone we met were really nice, especially IAC and MC were really cool. CCP did a fantastic job, the Jita area turned out to be a great idea, and the fanfest was just taken to another level this year. Fantastic work.

The only thing I disliked about the fanfest (which I also disliked last year) was the party Saturday. The format is kind of an anticlimax compared to the rest of the fanfest.We left pretty quickly to go sing karaoke, only to bump into some CCP people later, oddly enough. Glumbar was an excellent choice for official bar Thursday and Friday though.

Overall though, had a great time and I suspect we'll be back next year.

We met briefly (you were drunk, lulz) in the lobby of the Nordica, you did a hilarious presentation during that Alliance panel. The five day forecast thing still makes me chuckle.

Fantastic time guys. And its nice to see a new country.

Iceland is a place of stark beauty, a lot of it reminded me of Scotland but ofc we dinnae exactly get volcanoes over here.

Considering I have played Eve for so long this visit to Fan Fest was long overdue. Gm Xhagen initially struck me as a scary chap but my god hes a brainy one you have there CCP.

Managed to get teddy bear hug from Macayle, yay!

Got to meet Zapatero from EON, and apologised for not giving him more writings. Aim to solve this in the future.

Met quite a few friends and enemies alike. And despite our difference in EVE we are a pretty great bunch overall.

Alliance Leader presentation went down well, even if my nerves do show. The word "Basically" has become synomynous with me in my alliance. Well, at least its better than them sayign teacake to me all the time.

Incidentally, I will be sifting though all the pictures people have taken and choosing a few (5 or 6) of the best to appear in the next issue of EON. People will of course be credited and I'll send out EVEmails to get permissions.

By the way, where was RealX this year? I would have loved to hear him play on Saturday night.

impressions, opinion, experiences ... My first FanFest.

The first day - Thursday - was not good at all, for me. I just couldnt break into any conversations - I had come alone, I am only an occasional player. I choose a round table for newbies and thus missed what probably would have the best presentation for me: PvP guidelines. Cant be in two places at once. The weather over Blue Lagoon later that evening wasnt helping my mood, and after 1 hours in the bus back, the drinking place was closed to EVE folks that night (some one had gotten "too happy"?)

The second day was a bit better, I played a little the Mission/agent thing (that was a great idea! And well done by the Agents) tried to understand the tournament. I had a brief and enjoyable visit in the CCP offices (connections, connectionsWink) and got to the late day presentations in Tranquiliy which were "better" than the day before (mentioning: The CCP-gameshow (how Pirates train Laughing) ). Still, would have been nice if I had met someone to share beer with instead of heading home early (I usually dont have problems to socialise at (IT) conferences).

Third day - I did several round tables (and thanks to the Bug-hunters for hints), the presentations were good (mentioning: CCP history, Q&A session and "just learn to get along"), and even got to talk to several, as people must have gotten used to my apperance (QuestionSmile). And as the evening wore on and we neared the party .... Party Razz Party !! Well arranged!

The venue was very good, even internet access, chairs and stuff, a wide variety of things (ie not only presentations but also stalls, shop, roundtables, CCG stuff ...)

I spent all-in-all-and-everything 800 on this trip. (I was worried about airport security and my 4 phials of Vitoc in the transparent bag ... NP) I score it at 7/10.

That said, I am very happy I did come, it did show me which way to go to make the game more exciting. I've started another account, and "playing with myself"Wink that way does make EVE-life more varied. I'll come again next year if I have stared playing more seriously or I am there with others of my Corp.

Minor improvements: Announce door opening times, so we dont have to wait outside.
