Former multi-time CSM member (2,3,7) Issler Dainze (Michele Boland) has passed.
She was an avid and longterm EvE player who truly enjoyed the game (despite it’s issues, which she was not shy about pointing out).
With her 13 EvE characters, she experienced much of the content EvE offers, from dread tussling to WH diving-exploration. She sometimes seemed a bit of a contradiction in EvE…Issler was long a member of SA, but also wanted WiS… However, she is probably best known for her “carebear” mining/industry/internet spaceship politics main.
IRL Michele was an avid pilot and boater as well as a generous host and someone who tried to do what she could to make the world a better place.
She was one of those people who always has many things going yet progressing at the same time.
Michele/Issler dreamed big yet wasn’t afraid of criticism both irl and ingame…and actually brought many of her vision into reality (especially irl).
Professionally, she was a project manager for places like microsoft (where she helped make the graphics for the Xbox - so if you ever played that guess you have her to thank a little)
If I ever go to Reykjavik I will go to the Nonni Sandwich Shop there and get the Lamb Sub you recommended in your honour, Issler.
Journey well SpaceLlamaPrincess, stay shiny o7
