EVE TV’s Letter: Don't Come to Fanfest

We don't actually mean that, you should definitely try to make it to Fanfest this year, just read CCP Hellmar's letter for a few of the endless reasons.

However here at CCP we understand that not everyone can make it to this icy rock in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. After all, sometimes you just want to sit back, relax at home, and have a portion of Fanfest brought to you.

Well EVE TV is here to help. For Fanfest 2011 we're pulling out all the stops to bring you 2 full days of live action, covering the Friday and Saturday of Fanfest!

So what can you expect?

  • Full live feed from Fanfest 2011 covering Friday and Saturday's events!
  • An estimated 18+ hours live from the venue.
  • All the major presentations as they happen.
  • Your hosts CCP Soundwave and CCP Stevie SG will be there as your guides.
  • Continuous information overload from the presentations, Fanfest Tournament, Dev interviews and player interviews.
  • The Party on Top of the World! Including live acts: CCP's ROXOR & PERMABAND and FM Belfast!

To make such an awesome show possible we have two viewing options for you this year:

EVE TV HD

The full show in glorious High Definition, the only option if you want the full experience of Fanfest brought to your home. This feed will be of a significantly higher quality than the standard definition feed.

As an added bonus, your purchase of the EVE TV HD stream of Fanfest 2011 includes a Fanfest exclusive in-game item to be delivered to you with the EVE Online: Incarna expansion - the limited edition Quafe T-Shirt*, sized for your Incarna avatar, modelled after the physical shirt to be given to Fanfest event attendees who will also recieve the Incarna edition.

To secure the HD feed for Fanfest all you have to do is login to account management and follow the link for "Fanfest HD video stream". For payment options you can choose between either 1 PLEX or a near equivallant price payable by credit card and various options.

During Fanfest just log back into account management and the "Watch Now!" link will have appeared and will take you to the HD stream.

*Only one Quafe T-shirt In-game item can be redeemed per account. In-game Quafe T-Shirt will only be available to attendees of Fanfest 2011 and purchasers of the HD feed. Item will be available at a later date with the EVE Online: Incarna expansion.

EVE TV SD

For those who don't want to watch in HD then we've thought about you too! The entire stream will be available in a lower quality feed which will be free to view. You don't have to do anything in advance to watch this feed, simply visit //fanfest.eveonline.com on the day to watch! We'll also be sending some great stuff via our Facebook feed and via the #evefanfest Twitter convo hashtag.

Whichever option you choose we hope you'll enjoy the show and even at this late stage we'd encourage everyone to book those last minute tickets and come see Fanfest for yourself, there's no replacement for joining us in person and experiencing EVE history being made all around you!
