Yesterday was a very special day for the EVE Community. It was the day that the first ever EVEsterdam became a reality!

I had an awesome time talking to other players, getting to know people I have flown with and of course talking to CCP Gargant. It always surprises me how many different kinds of players there are within the EVE online community. Null sec grunts like myself can sometimes lose track of people that live in lowsec or pocket regions like Placid, and it can be very interesting to exchange stories and ideas in order to learn what others like about EVE.

CCP Gargant
was the EVE representative. Unfortunately he wasn’t allowed to release anything just yet because of the upcoming patch, but he did bring lots of presents to make up for it. The gifts included lots of cool things like: Key chains, EVE Symphony Soundtrack CD’s, T-shirts, hats, Into the Second Decade book signed by one of the designers. Valentijn (Organiser also known as Dierdra Vaal) prepared a raffle and CCP Gargant had the appropriate task of drawing the names. One of the prizes was a shout out in this article and this got won by:

Stray Jenkins

After the raffle I sat down and talked with Dierdra Vaal about his thoughts about the meet so far and he said the following:

I’ve really enjoyed organising EVEsterdam and I think we can call it a great success. This is the first meet and already over 150 people attended which is kinda incredible. I want
to thank all the players that attended and of course CCP for allowing CCP Gargant to be the Dev representative. I can already confirm that next year there will be a EVEsterdam as well and I am already excited!!!

    Sounds good wish I could have gone…

    I hope you all raised a glass and saluted our continuous attempts at generating content.

    Whilst most of us still thought we would be fighting for Fountain at this point in time, we are doing what we can locking down the scrubs in its core (God Fathers should rename themselves monosyllabic god mothers) . Its a shame other alliances could not deliver the goods and provide us with good fights. Still when you facing the face of fear I guess that is understandable.
    I hear that our colleagues in Black Legion and their stalwart allies Goon brought about the complete destruction of an NC. T3 fleet tonight. I would personally like to congratulate the CFC in the surgical delivery of this victory. Just goes to show that teamwork makes short work as always.
    Viva FA, Long live the CFC and all our café cream allies

        see what content we give you
        Like all dogs though your Goon masters should keep you on a shorter leash though
        Lets face it if your not given regular exercise you crap on the carpet and rip up your owners furniture.
        Still you do have useful tricks so the CFC will keep throwing you the odd bone
        Space relevance guaranteed

      no, it was a DD BS fleet that killed off a good number of t3 stranded in bubbles when the rest (the majority) was warping out.
      So not a ‘complete destruction’ , 80% got out but then again, CFC likes to claim credit for stuff they haven’t done. (small penis syndrome, make everything bigger then it really is)

      Congratulations go to DD for putting up the bubbles on the outwarping fleet.
