Fanfest

From EVE University Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Fanfest is a celebration of the EVE universe, sponsored every year by Crowd Control Productions (CCP). It is a chance for EVE players to meet with each other and with CCP developers (a.k.a. "devs") and company management. At Fanfest, CCP shares where they are taking EVE, and players provide feedback and opinions about the future direction of the game. Over three days, players attend CCP briefings and roundtable discussions, and talk about the evolving EVE universe.

It is also a fun celebration of the EVE community, with fantastic parties and music, both at the main Fanfest venue and in the various nearby hotels, bars and clubs.

For members of EVE University, Fanfest is also an opportunity to get together and meet the real people you fleet and chat with - the folks that exist only as voices on Mumble or as lines of text on your screen. It's a chance to share your common EVE experiences and retell stories of your adventures, and build bonds of comradeship that far go beyond the game itself.
