Kill An Aeon For Kids! December 5 19:00 EVE Time

Updated date and time. Thanks to CCP Logibro for working with me to make this happen!


Well it's almost time again for my 24 hour Extra Life gaming marathon. Many of you participated last year in my Kill a Nyx for Kids event in Ostingele. We saw local top out with over 900 players and my stream peaked at roughly the same. It was an amazing couple of hours that ended of course with my Nyx exploding in a glorious fireball in the one and only asteroid belt in Ostingele.

This year, with the very generous help of Goonswarm on relatively short notice, I've acquired an Aeon that will be sporting the shiny Khanid skin, and am planning a sequel to last year's event. Shoutouts to Mittani and Mirana Bal'ari in particular for the help!

To give a quick update to those who participated last year, we raised just over $13,000, the large majority of which came from EVE Online players. CCP matched $5,000 of that so the grand total raised for Children's Hospital Colorado was $18,407.

This year I've set my goal to $7,500 for now, and really hope we can get there. I've already raised $5,000 of that, but during last year's event we raised $5000+, so we should be able to hit that $7,500 easily and hopefully stretch that goal!


Importantly, this year I have started an Extra Life team with some friends, family, and some of my EVE bros. We dedicated the team to Savannah, a young girl who had been fighting neuroblastoma for nearly 4 years. She was friends with my daughters and the daughter of some high school friends of mine, and she was thrilled to be a part of Extra Life and looking forward to playing with us on November 7th. Unfortunately, her cancer won the fight in September, and now we are doing this to honor and remember her battle.

I hope you'll join the event, it should be a blast with explosions everywhere and culminating with a shiny and expensively fit Khanid Aeon exploding. The event will of course be streamed live on my Twitch stream.

Not much response to this, but it's going down whether or not anyone wants to show up! Let's get some interest stirred up! This is for sick kids, and in particular to honor the memory of a friend's daughter who passed away just last month at the age of 7.

def a fantastic event for a fantastic cause.

The lack of interest might be due to citriconi having his yolo event on the same night?

I mailed Jayne about it because Spectre had only the Stille Gewalt carrier thing in the MOTD.
And just because people don't post doesn't mean they are not aware

Citricioni, I've reached out to you via EVE Mail.

We'll figure something out to either work together, or run separate events at different times. Details when we've sorted something.

See updated OP. Delaying a few weeks as there's too much going on this weekend and the interest is diluted. Would rather have a big fun huge event with a few hundred players like last year than a few dozen because things are spread out, and this allows the other events to be more successful as well. Stay tuned for a hard date.

Sorry for going MIA! Finally got the details sorted. December 5th, 19:00 EVE time, location TBA. Let's do this! I so far have commitments from a number of corpmates to suicide some carriers along with me, so it won't just be an Aeon killmail!

Just confirmed that we're going to have as many as 9 more capitals to blow up with the Aeon! Thanks to my Rote Kapelle bros for x-ing up for the cause!
