Well I presume everyone made it home ok? I warped out about 1 ish and there was a fair crowd about to hit the town :-) Great night once again and it was good to see people back who were there last year as well.

It would have been nice to have some sort of presentation same as last year but the freebies more than made up for it Big smile

Cya all next year, fly safe.

Enjoyed the night. The free T-Shirt, mouse mat and drinks were really appreciated. The devs were a great bunch of guys. Also can someone give one of the dust team a cool CCP Tag like, CCP Gatecrasher, you know who you are.

gutted i couldnt make it, but being on the other side of the country it was a little too far to travel, a few friends rolled up in there and said they had a good night.

Looking forward to meeting you all at the london Veto meetup o7

Fantastic night was definitely had. I recognise a few names in this thread when I started asking who people were. Like TJ.. I had a very similar experience when asking the "Are you here for EvE or Dust?" questions, especially when the pub opened up to the general public later on in the night.

On a side note, however. I believe that SamuraiJack has finally trained Nanite Control to 1. Evidence supporting this theory is that this year, he did not get that drunk he fell over a bin, only to proceed being sick everywhere..

Hey guys thanks for a good night, nice to chat to the devs again, and at least there was no flooding this time Big smile, can someone please enlighten me as to the whole bouncer incident which revolved around someone being ejected? Roll

Ya PL young kid couldnt handle his drink, he was wearing a worn out PL tshirt and knitted hat. He was a **** to me and CDLoon askibg for drinks and handout. Just a gobby littie ****. The door man was very polite got to see the start of it as I had to catch the last Metro.

Awesome night, apart from the guy who spent a good 6 hours trying to get into my pants. Lol

It was great to meet so many new people and see so many EVE and DUST players sharing drinks and taking a break from shooting eachother in the middle of the face!

I'll also throw in a quick plug for the September 28th Player Gathering in London, which takes place during Eurogamer weekend!

Hope to see you all again there!

I'm really happy you guys had a good time and that the turnout was strong. I'm sad I couldn't be with you this time but hopefully I'll come hang out with you guys at a later date.

Stay cool! Bear
