(Commander A9) #22

I believe that was your Secret Santa gift. The Secret Santa gifts remain anonymous always. XD


(Commander A9) #23

To clarify, as I am becoming aware, the snowball fight is on the 16th, 2100, in EVE Time!

Check your calendars, and I’ll see ya’ll TOMORROW!

This event was one of the first player-run events i attended; great fun and recommended to all! Totally missed the post this year, so I’ll remember to donate a huge collection of launchers and fireworks for the next one! I’ll try to get online and take part in the Secret Santa, but i wish you all great fun tonight!


(Commander A9) #25

This is now, officially, a thing!

We scored coverage from the devs!

Thank you CCP Falcon and CCP Guard for contributing!

Apparently CCP Guard tweeted about it too!

@Commander_A9 hi there had a question about the secret santa.

I would love to participate in this but due to real life I dont know if I can make the event in game. Would this be an issue if I Couldn’t make it?


(Commander A9) #27

Not at all! If you can get your gift as close to Luminaire as possible, I’ll do the rest.

Just contract the gift to me directly labeled “Secret Santa.”

Secret Santa gifts will be exchanged AFTER the event so I’m not tied up with paperwork in the middle of it.

Be advised: Slight change in location.

The event will now be at Luminaire VII (Caldari Prime) - Moon 6 - Federation Navy Assembly Plant, NOT the Citadel!

The Citadel has this obnoxious no-lock range that surrounds the entire structure in close proximity.


(Blainy) #30

Have quick question have tried to locate site but search says does not exist I am new to game about 2months would like to see event and I have fireworks and launcher to add to fun please advise Thanks


(Mirielle Asaki) #31

Hey @Blainy, if you type “Luminaire” in the Seach New Eden box at the top left of your UI / screen, and then under Stations select Luminaire VII (Caldari Prime) - Moon 6 - Federation Navy Assembly Plant, you’ll find the ongoing party!

Welcome to New Eden!


(Retor Et) #32

It’s my first time at the “Lumiere” event and … I loved it !!!

Congratulations to all !!

Merry Christmas!!!


(Anataine Deva) #33

Still running.


(YooJin Moon) #34

My first Snowball in Luminaire event (I think)…the display off station was too fun but the lightshows were incredible and I learned the little things in Eve can make a lot of difference in how much fun it is! Thanks Commander A9! He put on an amazing display himself:


(Wunders Wuzi) #35

First timer here, great fun. Keep it up!


(Herzog Wolfhammer) #36

Wow what a party. All we needed was egg nog and a drunk fedo.

Collection of additional images are here:

Fireworks has improved much in the last few years.

CCP can we have deployable disco balls that when shot with beam weapons will reflect them? And party popper drones? That would be nice. :slight_smile:

Special thanks to Commander A9 for being one of Eve’s greatest MCs. o7


(Commander A9) #37

This party was absolutely insane!

And record-breaking!

I’m tracking at least 20 prizes per lightshow battle and over 100 Secret Santa gifts!

Which means…this is going to take me some time to process and organize, guys.

So, please, bear with me as I work my hardest to sort all this stuff out! Given that I can only create a maximum of 21 contracts at a time, this might take me some time…

Also, it turns out some people stuck their Secret Santa gifts all the way out in Jita, Hek, and other absurdly faraway places, so I gotta go get them! XD

Your patience is appreciated! I love you all!


(Holger Mad) #38
