EVE Online's EVE Fanfest 2014 recently wrapped in Reykjavic, Iceland. An MMA fighter stomped on some of the developers. So, if you don't already have plans for March 19 – 21 of next year, then CCP Games has an idea: how about EVE Fanfest 2015?
Those are some plan-ahead people. A limited number of early bird tickets are now on sale for next year's event, going for $150 apiece. If you wait, standard tickets go up in price to $175.
2015 celebrates EVE Online's 11th year in operation, with PvP events, access to developer roundtables and panels, the Party at the Top of the World, and the Developer Pub Crawl through downtown Reykjavik. They've made more details available on their official fanfest website.
If flying to Iceland sounds ridiculous to you, then this year's EVE Vegas event takes place in "Sin City" from October 17 – 19. EVE Vegas is CCP sanctioned, but player run. What it lacks in volcanoes it makes up for in, well, Vegas.
CCP just released this video commemorating the headline-grabbing "Bloodbath of B-R5RB" that took place in January, earlier this year. It's a dry but informative recap of a historic in-game event—one of many that keeps EVE Online's subscription numbers growing year after year.
