Luminaire Snowball Fight V (16-DEC, 2100, Luminaire)


(Commander A9) #1

Hello, New Eden! Did you think me dead? A great immortal man once said “It would be a sad error in judgment to mistake me for a corpse.”

In the spirit of the holidays, for the sake of Live Events, we will be hosting our fifth annual Luminaire Snowball Fight! After the outstanding success of the last four snowball fights, we’re dousing Luminaire with snow and fireworks once again!

Bring your Festival Launchers, snowballs, and fireworks for some fun, games, and insanity in Luminaire! If you need a Festival Launcher or fireworks, we have plenty on-hand! Just ask me and I’ll give you some!

Luminaire Snowball Fight III

Snowball Fight Details:
Luminaire VII - Battle of Caldari Prime Citadel
16-DEC-18
2100 EVE Time
That’s 4pm USA EST!

I have reached out to CCP to spark their interest!

I have reached out to our favorite music streaming services to provide some sound!

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, etc.
-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!
-Note: all prizes will be contracted to winners AFTER the event has concluded!

"Secret Santa" Gift Exchanges
-bring a gift to get a gift!
-items worth under $200 million ISK are encouraged, to be contracted to Commander A9 at Luminaire VII Federal Administration Information Center 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 prizes and any donations, or else your gift might be accidentally given away as a prize!
-in outstanding circumstances, you can relay your gift earlier than the event, as long as it’s as close to Luminaire as possible
-Note: Secret Santa gifts will be exchanged AFTER the event has concluded, so we’re not wasting time trying to hand out the gifts in mid-event!

Festival Launchers and Snowballs/Fireworks will be donated to any pilot who does not have one or runs out so the fun can continue!

Thank You To Those Who Have Donated! Any donations go towards obtaining equipment and prizes!

Didn’t the snowballs melt?


(Commander A9) #3

The ones given out for the Winter parties in 2008-2009 did, not the ones given out as of 2013. They’re still intact!


(Herzog Wolfhammer) #4

Welcome back, Commander! o7


(Commander A9) #5

It’s good to be back!

Let’s see what kind of a turnout we’ll have this year! I’ve already received some donations and even some Secret Santa gifts.


(Herzog Wolfhammer) #6

Ok just dropped off a donation in Luminaire. Use as you need. Check yer contracts.


(Vafa) #8

I won’t be able to attend but I made a small donation, hope it helps.
Good luck and have fun :slight_smile:


(Ms Moses) #9

Looking forward to seeing this fun event - where can we see it being streamed?

Was told about this by a Corp mate…

Will drop some SS gifts off at station and try and make it.

(Commander A9) #11

I imagine an attendant might stream it. I’ve reached out to Daopa to see if he’s interested.

We’ll have live music streams at least.

Perhaps I should up my Twitch account? XD


(Ms Moses) #12

We could also talk and see how the streaming community could help you


(Commander A9) #13

Sure! If someone wants to stream, go for it! :smiley:

What do you need from me?


(Commander A9) #14

I want to thank Santa Spirit for his personal donation of $1,000,000,000 ISK to the Luminaire Snowball Fight V!

Be sure to head on over to the Santa Spirit Event on December 14! Throw yourself into the snow for a Ship Scramble, 1v1 battles, and a system-wide treasure hunt!


Let’s make this a true Merry Christmas!


(Ms Moses) #15

excellent - shall have a chat with the streamers and get this out on one of the main channels for you


(Commander A9) #16

Fabulous! Thank you!


(Commander A9) #17

I want to thank Cath Babylon for her amazing contribution of almost 3,000 Festival Launchers and almost 60,000 fireworks and snowballs!

These will keep us going not only for this snowball fight, but snowball fights to come!

(Commander A9) #19

Thank you, Blacksheep8Delta, for offering to our cause a Prostitute worth $150,000,000 ISK!

When I first did this, she was worth $10,000,000 ISK. I don’t know what the hell happened over the last five years, but she better be one high-class gal at this rate!


(Commander A9) #20

I am deeply humbled by all of the contributions that have come in thus far!

To ensure that I remain on schedule and we aren’t holding the event up by wrestling with awarding contracts, all prizes and Secret Santa gifts will be contracted AFTER the event has concluded!

This way, we aren’t delaying the partying with paperwork!

Thank you for your understanding, and I hope to see everyone there!
