RIP VR. Sad day indeed.

Never met him in game but his influence was felt through corp leaders who did interact with him.

I don't really 'meh...' about anyone dying tbh.


Thank you. Whether it's soldiers, militiamen, bystanders, Americans, Russians, Iraqis or Palestinians, it is a human loss. A son, daughter, father or mother. I never, ever brush such news off.

VR left children.

Never met him in game, but his name is know to all who know the history of New Eden.


Rest in peace Sir.

My condolences. I only knew him by reputation. A true EVE player.


On a slightly unrelated note... it's kinda interesting to know that even the US State Department plays EVE.

We were supposed to go grab a beer to celebrate Hulkageddon... He lived right near me.

Guess that won't be happening now :(

Anyone dying in such a senseless manner is always sad.

I am curious as to how people have this information though...When the various news services can't even seem to confirm the death or that it was an American?

"The State Department does not have independent confirmation of the death, the official said. The nationality of the worker was not immediately clear."

I can't express things as eloquently as people above, suffice it to say the long form is pretty similar in thought process to what Verone has said.

It is always a shame to hear about these tragedies, it's bad enough when it is people outside the Eve universe but when it is someone we know (whether personally or by reputation) it hurts even more.

Much respect for the flood of outpost renaming appearing on DOTLAN. A fitting memorial for someone so involved in the "constructive" parts of New Eden. I'm sure some of those wouldn't be there today without Vile Rat's diplomatic ability.

RIP VR, while we've never crossed paths in game, such a senseless loss is just... ugh.

The family are usually notified pretty quickly, they'll release the details to the news when they think it's appropriate.
