John Bellicose Day

Brave Collective Invites all pilots of Eve Online to take part in the 10th Annual John Bellicose day on the 29th April 2024.

Like years prior, we will be holding a 24 hour Cyno vigil in honor of John Bellicose, an inspirational member of the Brave community who sadly lost his life to suicide.John Bellicose day is a honored tradition held by Brave.

We make these connections with people, the time spent playing spaceships, hanging out on comms making mistakes, having a laugh, just spending time with other people around the globe. This game has a heavy social aspect and these connections become very real. Taking care of yourselves outside the game is important.

We will host the event in the system K7D-II in Querious. We will have a freeported Astra “John Bellicose Memorial” setup on grid to celebrate within view of our Keepstar named Mothership Bellicose.

Brave will be doing our best to help folks into K7D-II. We recommend small cheap things as not all parties in Eve partake in this event. Use caution.

We ask that on this day All Brave pilots be welcoming and stay Classy.

During the 24 hours of this vigil, Brave will not fire upon neutrals or reds in our space unless fired upon first or if fleets move in with hostile intent. In game politics do not matter, you the player does… We’ll do our best to get you here. We hope others will too.

We’re all here to have a good time, share some laughs, and remember those who are no longer with us. So please join us on the 29th of April in K7D-II in Querious. All are welcome. Shoot fireworks & light a Cyno for the loved ones we’ve lost. They are not forgotten.

This Vigil will run from 23:59 Eve time on the 28th April 2024 until 00:00 on the 30th April 2024.

‘The Watch’

Eyes forward, capsuleer, the cyno is not yet lit.

Consider your modules, your rigs and ammo before you undock. For the cyno is not yet lit.

Break free of the station and witness the universe before you. For the cyno is not yet lit.

Set your ship to fly through the vastness while you wait. For the cyno is not yet lit.

Pay attention, capsuleer, for those who have gone before you call for you to join them.

The cyno is now lit.


We are gathering with corp and will come to pay tribute to fellow capsuleer.

When life, like space, seems empty and cold
And you cannot find the will to grow old,
Look for the beacon, that brightening spark,
That lights the way, and banishes dark,
To how it will end, we make no prediction,
But this, we say, with utter conviction:
We want you here, and ask you to stay,
For a better tomorrow, brighter each day.
