Hello, New Eden!

It's that time again! After the smashing success of the first snowball fight, and the second snowball fight, we're doing it again! Another snowball fight in Luminaire for the holidays! For live events! And for New Eden!

In the spirit of the holidays, for the sake of events and gatherings, I'm hosting a player gathering during which pilots can strap Festival Launchers to their ships and launch snowballs and fireworks at each other-again!

Snowball Fight Details:
Luminaire VII - Moon 6 - Federation Navy Assembly Plant
20-DEC-15, Sunday
2100 EVE Time


* EVE Radio has confirmed their support! Tune in at http://eve-radio.com/

* Ace Echo will be live-streaming the event! http://www.twitch.tv/acetech09/

* Lightshows will be held (similar to the manner in which EVE Radio does on occasion)
-prizes will be devised based on discussions about this event: prizes will include PLEX, ships, weapons, and other comical gifts
-to participate, bring devices that emanate light: lasers, remote-repairs, cap transfers, target spectrum breakers, and drones
-only individual pilots can be rewarded! You can partner up with someone if you like, but prize packages can only be awarded to individual pilots!

* "Secret Santa" style of gift exchanges between participants will be held (provided that participants bring gifts to exchange with each other)
-items worth under $200 million ISK are encouraged, to be contracted to me at Luminaire VII during the event to make the exchange with other participants: everyone who gives a gift gets a gift
-Please mark the contract with "Secret Santa" to differentiate it from prize donations, or else your gift might be given away as a prize!

Note: The first time, CCP Falcon and CCP Logibro showed up in CONCORD Battleships...Everyone, including CCP, are invited to attend!


Event Schedule (may adjust based on time constraints):
2100: Event Begins
2130: First Lightshow
2200: Secret Santa Gift Exchange Begins
2230: Secret Santa Gift Window Closes
2230-2300: Ace Echo's Christmas Trivia Contest

Prizes only for capsuleers with lasers etc. on a Snowball event? I find that odd.

However, I'll take a look.

Give The BIG Lottery a try (it's conform with the EULA) and me your Fedos!

No, you can use snowballs and fireworks for lightshows!

The only stipulation for prizes is that they go to individuals instead of groups, so everyone is competing solo.

Oh my, Your event gathers more & more attention every year Commander! I'll be there as well!

For people curious on what kind of event it is, I can provide links to the articles I wrote about the two previous editions:

- Luminaire Snowball fight, 1st edition

- Luminaire Snowball Fight, 2nd edition

Ah, nice. Now I will have to haul my stockpiles to Luminaire to do it all again....Shocked

Oh well, I will just switch the frozen crew with the crisply burned ones and my ships will fly again...Cool

Here I used to have a sig of our old Camper in space. Now it is disregarded as being the wrong format. Looking out the window I see one thing: Nothing wrong with the format of our Camper! Silly CCP......

I want to extend my most sincere thanks to the Warp To Me Incursion Community and The Valhalla Project for their tremendous gifts of $5,000,000,000 ISK and 1 PLEX respectively!

Incursions are massive operations wherein fleets of pilots will group up in battleships with logistics in support to engage Sansha's Nation pirates causing havoc around New Eden. CONCORD rewards these fleets handsomely for their services.

Warp To Me and The Valhalla Project are EVE's premier shield-centric communities, both of which specialize in taking the fight directly to Sansha's Nation through the employment of organized elite 40-man fleets, with expert logistics pilots to boot and fully-developed command ship boosters. These groups offer opportunities for leadership development, improvement of one's combat abilities, lots of fun, and lots and lots of ISK!

Come join up with the incursion groups today! Defend New Eden from Sansha's Nation, and make insane money while doing it!

Note: Yes, you CAN CONTRIBUTE!

There's no cut-off for donations or contributions. However, any prizes that aren't in Luminaire will either be contracted in place or donated after-the-fact to winners. If you are still interested in contributing items for the event, try to get them as close to Luminaire as possible.

You will be credited!

Is ganking allowed?
Gallente Federation
#18 - 2015-12-19 22:58:40 UTC  |  Edited by: Commander A9
I'm going to have to discourage the prospect of ganking at this event.

I'm not hosting anything combat-related, and I'm not encouraging it either. Likewise, anyone who maliciously attacks one of my party-goers can consider himself disqualified from prizes for the lightshows. Of course, it's a 1.0, so CONCORD (and CCP) will be on-station.

Although, if you try to loot something and you get bagged, that's on you.

Keep it clean.
