Here's one of those things that make you squint. I haven't given more than a passing thought to EVE Vegas for the past several weeks, but after having it come up in conversation today with no less than three (3!) different people about the upcoming trip, I get home and see an email from CCP about ... EVE Vegas of all things.
Wait, what? The universe is weird sometimes.
Anyway, I'll just quote the entire email here, as it's not a bad summary of old-news and new-news:
A new round of Prize draws
The second round of EVE Vegas ticket holder prize draws has just kicked off, and with attendance at an all time high we've decided to reveal a little bit more about the events that will be happening in Sin City this year!
More speakers and participants announced
Attendees are in for a content packed weekend in the desert this year, with many of our speakers, both player and developer, already announced here and here.
After the opening ceremony hosted by CCP Guard and CCP Falcon, we will have two days of spaceship packed goodness, with all those speakers already confirmed, plus more!
We're delighted to announce that CCP Quant will be joining us this year, for another data science presentation after the amazing feedback on his talk from Fanfest 2015. In addition to this, CCP Larrikin will be flying out to Vegas for a talk and roundtables on ship balancing and what we can expect coming up in the releases after EVE Vegas.
CCP Logibro will also be joining us in the desert for the EVE Vegas PvP tournament, and CCP Leeloo will be with us for a CSM roundtable and recap of the CSM X Summit which will be taking place in September.
In addition to the above announcements, we will also have CCP t0rfifrans joining us for an IP Development roundtable, and CCP DIGGER, Executive Producer for EVE Valkyrie will be heading out to EVE Vegas to give a keynote update on progress with EVE Valkyrie.
The EVE Store
The EVE Store will also make a return, as CCP Spitfire brings out his latest wares to Las Vegas for your scrutiny, and we'll also be hosting a silent auction for five blades from Tranquility, which were incredibly popular at Fanfest 2015.
Gunjack & EVE: Valkyrie
We're also happy to announce that both Gunjack and EVE: Valkyrie will be with us at EVE Vegas this year, so that attendees will be able to get a taste of the action that's coming up over the course of the next 12 months.
Instead of recreating all the links in the email, I'll take the easy way out and shove you at the EVE Vegas Facebook page.
