FanFest 2014 is a little over a week away and it's going to be EPIC!

And there's a ton of other fun stuff to look forward to as well.

CCP Legion has it all laid out in full in this dev blog.


"Travel Advisory Due to a potential strike by the Association of Airport Employees in Iceland, your travel to Iceland may be impacted. We recommend anyone flying into Iceland keep an eye on the airport website and get in touch with their airline before departure. See you soon!"

Probably should of posted that at the top of the blog.

Seriously, you guys seem to use that line a lot (or at least I've seen it used more more recently)

But I do have a question for you... what time of year isn't bad for Iceland Holidays... is there one?

I seem to be living in the wrong country...


Quit bitching!

I'm sure they have their own internal time tables, deadlines, and agendas. Sit back and wait, and quit acting like an impatient 4 year old.

There is a lot of tidbits of news about this but I might as well put it out there.

As far as the strike goes people should be contacting Icelandair about it ASAP. The "General strike" on the 30th with be an INDEFINITE shutdown of the airports, not an ongoing 5 hour morning traffic strike, if it goes through. This means NO flights will be going (or leaving) from iceland until this gets resolved.

Icelandair will not comment on the state of the flights until the morning of the 28th.

I has all the eve inactivity

Aaaannnnddd.....another day passes without any of the dev blogs promised that outline the additional changes to industry.
It has been a week since the last one, and there are what, 4 to go?

Unless of course, you plan on releasing all the particulars in front of a room of sycophantic null sec players at Fanfest, and then dump the blogs on the forum after that.


Note that this time of year is littered with holidays here in Iceland, which means people haven't been at work for more than a couple of days since last blog went up.

That being said, the other blogs are going into review and should see the light of day soon.


I'm writing mine as we speak and it should be finished tomorrow good sir (which is another holiday here in Iceland) Lol

So last year there was no wormhole-roundtable in the scredule, it was added later. The room turned out to be way too small, as there was about 150 of us present. I see that this year we have a wh-roundtable 1&2, but they are again in the small rooms.

Are they the same roundtable and you are hoping for less people to show up at once, or are they gonna be about different things and the rooms will be too small again?

I'm fearing that the mass limits are gonna be too small either way...



Same with the Economy round table last fanfest, seem we don't have one this year? Ugh



As the next expansions theme is industry, I'd say you will have alot of economy and industry talks at fanfest


That is correct, we will have quite a bit of Industry related sessions and look forward to seeing you attend, in person or in spirit Smile

1st. Semi serious question. For us poor bastards who will be working and or should be sleeping during the meat of fanfest. Where, When and are there going to be recordings of the sessions put online somewhere? You guys were excellent with uploading videos for the last NEO quickly.

Will buying the HD stream get me access to recordings faster or better quality?


2nd. Is this whole EVE of Destruction just been a 6-month training program to get Hilmar in better shape? Looks like he lost a bunch of weight in the Fanfest Brochure.

I'm calling this information bull****. Like almost everything else coming from ccp these days they'll cancel fanfest the Day before it starts, tell you all how sorry they are but resources are better spent elsewhere, but here's a picture of a cow, Hope you like it.. ohh and yes, we know you can only see half the cow but we didn't have time or resourses to take a proper picture.

If you're going to be bitter an cynical, at least be realistic. There's too much $ in fanfest, and hilmar loves his $ more than anything. Well, except maybe a bigass statue dedicated to his ego. If anything, this fanfest will be like the last one... no useful info, stealth devblogs about massive nerfs with no dev feedback because *fanfest*, random controversies spawned either by CCP incompetence or corruption. Same old same old.

To ask an obvious question, too - what delicious in-game items do we get with tickets this year? I mean, a shirt obviously, but hopefully another unique ship like previous years..?

People are going to feel right shafted if you just throw a ship skin BPC at them. Just so you know.

So, in US Dollars, how much would I need to have saved up by next year's Fanfest to have a good time? I want to know now, so I can start putting a little aside every payday...

Sounds like good reason to quit the game, then? Why ***** about it, and still pay to play? Or waste your time?

Maybe it's blind hope, but hope anyways, that they'll announce DUST for the correct platform.

All posts and mails screencapped and time stamped, including out of EVE, you will not reverse on me.

Might come in handy!

Will it be possible to jumpclone and time travel between presentations? So many presentations, not enough time.

You should all hold off an extra week and enjoy fanfest thoroughly.

I'm eager to hear the details too, but it's more fun if a certain fish's buttons get pushed. :)

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.
