As part of this year’s GM Week we’re looking for help from the EVE Online community to make one of the most important decisions we face when moving to our new headquarters in December – what to name our meeting rooms in the new building.
Right now, our meeting rooms are named after expansions in our current building and have been since we moved in more than a decade ago.
When we move to the new place, we’d like to change things up a little, so we’re calling on our players to help us choose how we should decide on names.
We’ll have a lot of space in our new building and there’ll be approximately 25-30 rooms that will be bookable for various purposes. These are the ones that we’re looking to have you guys name.
First, we’ll decide on a category of names with a simple four-way vote. The options are:
- Region Names
- Constellation Names
- Solar System Names
- Ship class Names
We’ll kick off the voting as of today, and we’ll leave the poll open for seven days. After this, we’ll go into more detail and decide on specific names with the help of the community.
Please bear in mind that if we choose to go with Region, Constellation or Solar System names, we’ll only be using “named” locations in EVE.
In the first round of voting, let us know which option you’ve voted for, and why you’ve chosen that option. Maybe even what name you’ll suggest if your choice wins.
If some cool stories about why people have chosen to vote a certain way come to light, then maybe there’ll be a few PLEX or a SKIN or two up for grabs as random prizes.
We’re interested to hear stories about your history with certain systems, regions or ship classes. Maybe an anecdote about a big ass fight you were involved in, or a ship class that’s close to your heart after a long history of flying it.
We’re looking forward to hearing stories from you guys and finding out how they’ll influence which way you’ll vote.
Also, to the CCPers who’re reading this, you get to vote too of course – you’ll be using the rooms after all, so share your stories as well!
Hit the poll below if you’d like to vote, and let us know in a reply why you’ve chosen to vote the way you did!
