If you have never attended a player gathering, it is an opportunity to witness the sheer passion, altruistic spirit, and friendless of the Eve community. Along with the playerbase, many of your favorite Devs are walking around, giving you the opportunity to have a face-to-face interaction with them. I had the oppournity to personally thank CCP Seagull for her passion and dedication on delivering a renewed vision of Eve Online. Many thanks to my partner in crime for the weekend, Lockefox (@HLIBIndustry).

Subject: Guristas Attack
Chief Executive Officers of the Caldari State,
Our agents have learned of a planned Guristas attack to test new fighter technology they have been developing.
While we have yet to learn where they will strike, we know that it will take place on YC117 01-19 @ 02:00 Eden Standard Time.
We have also learned that the Guristas have enlisted the help of Gallente Militia Capsuleer corporations to pilot capital assets in this attack.
Please inform all security forces to be on heightened alert and prepared to respond with force. We are authorizing a bounty for the capture of any prototype fighter technology.

Please stay tuned for further details.
Some 60 Aideron Robotics pilots gathered in order to save two Rorquals from Caldari lowsec last night. Kirith Kodachi has an outline of the rescue operation here.
I’m making a move to stop being a Jita Bear and to undock and lose things. Eleventybillion ISK isn’t any fun if you can’t watch it explode with friends. After a few days in Aideron Robotics, I’ve already started to change things and I have set a plan in motion that I will report on after we conduct the op. I can’t disclose any details besides it will feature many billions of ships exploding, [OPSEC], and [OPSEC].
Side Note: The phrase “risk tanking” came from o7: The EVE Online Show. Episode 3 where CCP Seagull said “risk taking”, but it sounded more like “risk tanking”. Risk Tanking is a much more amazing term and I hope it becomes part of the Eve lexicon.
