Give the man a unique ship for his efforts.

but this is a better idea imho, and more fitting.

how 'bout ORE's new T2 mining ship? the chribba-class excavator... y'know, a hulk-hull with T2 resists and a *wicked* align time, haha... c'mon, give those hulkaggeddon-ers something to really chase down!


/deep bow to chribba

thank you, sir

The total value of these third party trades reached, accordingly to Chribba so far, are in excess of 52 trillion ISK including 3,000 traded supercapitals.


That's like... one super traded every day you have been online, on average? Or were a bunch of those bulk deals?

I second this motion.

Shooting people in the face for fun and profit. Well, for fun, mostly.

For a ship in his honor, it should be a capital-class mining ship, but one that can use gates. Make it require Capital Industrial Ships, give it five strip miner/ice harvester (/gas cloud harvester if that is possible) slots, a generous ore bay and a bonus to veldspar mining amount.

A fine upstanding gentleman indeed, I support the call for a statue of Chribba Cool

I will donate for this. Seriously, rebuilt the Jita Monument to honour the god of Veldspar himself.

That statue need to been in Amarr

Chribba statue? Chribba station (surrounded by veldspar) more like. It would be glorious and well deserved.

A golden asteroid-station in orbit around the first planet in Amarr would make sense.

Chribba is my favorite person. He's also very deserving of this spotlight! <3

Every month, I wave at Chribba when he's around in Placid. He always waves back. Oops

I would suggest a special gravi sig named "Chrabbi's lost field", only spawing once each week and in Amarr, full of plain Veldspar.

Would love to see a system named after chribba.

"in the deepest darkest depths of ORE controled space is a system so highly prized by the miners who lived there that they destroyed the only stargate that connected them to the rest of the eve universe and named the system after their hero Chribba.
Recently discovered by some intrepid explorers the only way into this system is through a wormhole"

or something like that - make it happen please CCP.

Chribba has always been known for honesty and trust in a gaming universe that thrives on backstabbing and lying.

A while back, I remember CCP gifting the real life person of Chribba a crystal statue or something of that ilk. And he thanked us players for being a part of this game that made what he did special.

Whereas other players have gotten some form of Eve related tattoos inked, how many can claim to have a targetted Veldspar rock on their fore arm?

And I still have an old in-game mail from him personally thanking me when he was upgrading his system and I donated to his cause while he neither asked, begged, or grovelled for one cent.

The perfect honor to be number one. Thank you for your unselfishness.

Not sure if I did it backwards or not, really immaterial, but I played for a long time before I read any of the lore and "backstory".

I mention that to highlight this:

In the lore, there is a story of a selfless, driven individual who, in the face of all odds and logic, completed his mission with dogged determination, not for personal glory, but for the betterment of the pilot community.

He was rewarded by having a system named after him, Old Man Star.

In my own humble opinion, what Chribba has so selfishly done for the EvE community rises to this level.

Surely there is a system that can be christened as his namesake, and maybe even be somehow worked into the lore and backstory.

No, he is no God to worship, but he deserves much recognition.

Rename 9UY4-H to Veldstar, it'll always be Chribba's no matter who holds sov.
