For the love of- why does everyone put the “i” before the “e”? That’s not- > Puts his face in his hands and groans quietly.

Due to recent … emergency events that readers of the IGS have no doubt read about today, the deadline for the judges to finish their review has been extended to June 9th. It is expected that an event will be held to formally announce the winners and give prizes within two weeks or so thereafter.

All perfectly understandable. I’ve been trying to warn people for some time that an event like this was probably coming… and now that it’s here, life in certain parts of New Eden just got even crazier.

I will try to attend! Unfortunately around that time I am usually participating in drills with VaskTech’s security division. I will see if I can make an exception this time.

Please accept my apologies, which I asked one of my colleagues to convey on my behalf at the event, for my inability to attend. I was unavoidably deployed back home. I hope the event went well, and I thank you for the opportunity to take part in the competition.
