CCP Presents – Keynote:

 

Party at the top of the World – Metal Bands, Electro, and DJ Z-Trip:

 

With this amazing party and chill out and blogging on Sunday this absolutely incredible journey ended. We will fly home to Vienna on Monday early in the morning.

 

Fact: EVE Fanfest 2013 was really at the top of the world, at the top of CCP’s history – and will be on top in our minds :) – So we definitely will think about coming back here next year.

 

Thanks to all readers, commenter’s, DEV’s, GM’s, CCP, Twitch.tv, AutEvE, all capsuleers we met, Iceland and Reykjavik for this outstanding experience and event !

 

P.S.: We will change the order of the blog entries after some weeks back to “normal” – but now it is easier to read from “the beginning” to “the end” :) – If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

P.P.S.: Mistypes, wrong English, dump sentences and all other text-based anomalies are here for your amusement – Feel free to laugh at them (or report them) :D

EVE Online – Fanfest 2013 – Day Two

We were about, to reach the zenith of Fanfest 2013 – Friday.

Weather was perfect, Harpa was well decorated with flags:

Live Agents (For example: Caldari Police with a Guristas Pirate (GM Stinger)) of every EVE faction, offered missions, which finally escalated into a beer-winning-drawing.

Harpa is a really good location for doing this event. Good organized and very interesting first day. Here the link to the Dust 514 Keynote:

The golden circle and THE Symphony concert

On Wednesday CCP organized a bus trip  for the Golden Circle (If you would like to go visit iceland we absolutely recommend to do this tour). Eleven Busses, full of EVE players, started from Harpa to the first target: The Þingvellir Valley (where the American and European tectonic plates are drifting apart):

Catholic Church, old cemetery, GM Roam

New Day, new things to see.

(This tulps represent a “view” at our condition during our whole Iceland trip – Sometimes heads up – often “hang-over” :) )

 

As we left the cemetery, we saw GM Stinger on the overview with a fleet, and reacted on the advert, to join their roam :) So we escorted one capsuleer to the City Hotel and then went back, to get to the CCP Office:

After lunch at a fish-restaurant in the harbor (all you can eat buffet – and a very good fish-soup :) ) we had a short look at the harbor, to see a (rusty) Minmatar-Ship there:

Restocking at the supermarket and drinking some coffee at Polaris (shared flat of some CCP employees – these nerds had so much nice EVE related posters and so on there :) ) we started again to go downtown, ready to get drunk again in the islenski bar.

Back in the hostel, many capsuleers sat around in the lobby – And we started to engange with Captain-Coke, Coke-Captain and Brennivin (And finally many of that capsuleers got owned by the captain :) )
