A toast to another eight years (at least)

Dear friends.

It is with extreme pride I remind you all that come next Friday May 6, 2011, our baby - EVE Online, will turn eight years old. Some of you have been around since her birth while others just arrived to be part of the next eight years. Either way, we all have plenty to celebrate.

People giving fancy speeches often say "We couldn‘t have done it without you". In this case that‘s not just fancy talk and hardly a debateable fact. None of this would have happened without you, the citizens of EVE, who came along for this crazy ride. And to celebrate everything you‘ve built with us, we want to give each of you a present. The birthday girl herself needs no presents  -  she‘s happy as long as you all show up for the party.

So next Friday, May 6, we will have a special redeemable present available to all pilots on active, paid accounts.

We hope you enjoy the gift as much as we‘ve enjoyed having you with us for the last 8 years.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
