Fellow capsuleers,

It’s that time of the year again when Fanfest is drawing closer, and this year is going to be more badass than ever!

Fanfest 2018 kicks off celebrations that mark fifteen years of community, spaceship related shenanigans and epic stories and history that our community have created.

From the EVE Bank Scandal to the Ubiqua Seraph Heist, to the Siege of Mara and Zombies Smartboming Yulai, right through to the collapse of Band of Brothers and Ascendant Frontier, the destructions of Steve and Hera, to Burn Jita and Hulkageddon, organizations in EVE Online have created some of the most epic gaming stories in online gaming.

This year as part of the celebrations at Fanfest, we want to continue to honor the legacies and efforts of organizations across the cluster, and so we’d like to introduce a new take on the Fanfest Alliance Attendance Contest!

So, what's the prize?

There’s a few prizes this time around, here’s a quick overview of what they are, and on which days the attendance numbers will be counted for each of them.

Your colors flown at Fanfest:

Every Alliance that has more than 10 attendees on March 1st will have their alliance logo printed on a flag, which will be displayed in Eldborg (the main presentation hall) for the duration of Fanfest 2018.

A chance to win a VIP table at the Party On Top Of The World:

Every alliance that has more than 15 attendees on April 1st will be entered into a draw to win a VIP table (with drinks included) at the Party On Top Of The World.

The chance to win reserved balcony seating for your alliance at Fanfest:

The top ten attending alliances on April 1st will be entered into a draw to win reserved balcony seating in Eldborg during all the main Fanfest events.

The all new Alliance Attendance Trophy:

And finally, the alliance with the single most attendees on April 12th will win an honorary attendance trophy, which will be presented at the opening ceremony. The trophy will be stored at CCP Headquarters on display in reception in honor of the winning alliance. The winning alliance will receive a plate on the trophy, and further plates will be added in the future for alliances with the highest attendance at major EVE Online events.

How Do You Enter?

It’s pretty simple!

Just make sure that when you buy your Fanfest 2018 pass via Eventbrite, you fill in your Character Name, Corporation and Alliance affiliation, and we’ll count up the total and do the rest!

If you’ve already bought your ticket and didn’t fill in the details, then you can always go back to Eventbrite and do so by logging in and adding the details. Check your email for a login link that will have been delivered with your tickets and receipt.

If you’re an Alliance Executor or one of the guys who’s running the show, now is the time to crack the whip and make sure that all your members who’re attending Fanfest get their details filled in so that you’re in with the best shot at winning.

Fanfest is all about meeting your wingmen, putting names to faces, and coming together as one community to celebrate internet spaceships.

2018 is an incredibly important year for EVE Online as we power through into the second half of the second decade, heading towards 20 years of incredible stories.

Every one of these stories has been forged by all of you. Time and time again, the EVE Community has re-written gaming history and broken records, and we couldn’t be prouder of our pilots.

We’re looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Reykjavik for the 15th Anniversary celebrations!
