Fanfest Travel Advisory Cancelled! Gate Is Green! Go Go Go!

Comments Off on Fanfest Travel Advisory Cancelled! Gate Is Green! Go Go Go!

We're delighted to announce that previous messaging relating to potential strikes at Keflavik Airport tomorrow is no longer applicable!

Any strike action has been postponed until at least May 22nd, and as such there should be no travel issues for Fanfest attendees arriving in Iceland tomorrow.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, for an epic 10th Fanfest!

Travel Advisory for Iceland/EVE Fanfest 2014

Comments Off on Travel Advisory for Iceland/EVE Fanfest 2014

In Iceland, the Keflavik International Airport and other smaller airports are operated and serviced by one or more companies whose staff belongs to workers’ unions. The primary workers’ unions involved with operating the Icelandic airports recently voted in favor of holding short strikes leading up to a possible general strike to occur on Wednesday 30 April 2014.  The proposed general strike could continue until negotiations are completed.  Thus far, the short strikes have caused some delays flying into Iceland, but no cancellations.

CCP has been following the negotiations closely, due to the proximity of the general strike to this year’s EVE Fanfest. Tourism and the cargo shipments provided by airlines are of utmost importance to Iceland’s economy, so therefore it is the generally held opinion in the country that the Icelandic government will step in and enact laws to end a general strike, perhaps before it even happens.

This is what we expect as well, but, for those heading to Fanfest, we highly recommend checking with your airlines and the Keflavik airport website before departing.

Should the general strike occur, we hope it will end quickly. If the strike gets prolonged, lasting for more than 12 consecutive hours at any time during Wednesday, April 30 through Friday, May 2, 2014, and should you therefore need to cancel your plans and miss the entire event, CCP will offer to refund your Fanfest ticket in full, including Fanfest “extras” like the Charity Dinner, Sisters of EVE tour, and Pub Crawl. Alternatively you will be able to apply your 2014 ticket to Fanfest 2015, guaranteeing a spot for next year. We will announce the 2015 dates at Fanfest 2014 to better inform the decision between these two. 

All Fanfest ticket support should be handled through customer support: support@eveonline.com with “Fanfest Ticket” in the subject line.  All requests for refund or credit of your Fanfest ticket must be received by 9:00 pm GMT on or before May 15, 2014 (5:00 pm US Eastern Standard time).  All refund or credit decisions will be final.  Refunds are available only if you miss the entire event due to the general strike. Refunds for Fanfest “extras” due to delayed travel will be evaluated on a case by case basis, and are not guaranteed.    

You will need to contact your airline, hotel and/or travel insurance issuer for any other possible refunds.

In case of a general strike taking place and lasting more than 12 hours, CCP will also send a code for the Fanfest Twitch.tv HD stream to those unable to attend so they can hopefully catch what was missed in as much digital detail as possible.

If the strike lasts a full day but then is resolved, we will alter programming at Fanfest and replay key presentations for those arriving later than planned.

The Fanfest show will go on regardless of any potential strike, and it’s looking to be an amazing one. We expect some brave pilots and mercs to continue their treks to Iceland regardless of disputes or delays, and we will welcome them with open arms whenever they do arrive.

We do hope those of you who aren’t joining us in Iceland clear time to tune in either through the standard stream at www.twitch.tv/ccp or through an HD stream (with in-game goodies) available in EVE Account Management. If you haven’t checked out what’s in store for Fanfest, read this dev blog.

Alliance Logo Submissions On Hold

Comments Off on Alliance Logo Submissions On Hold

There has been a lot of discussion regarding alliance logos, ownership, and usage over the last couple of months. Clearly the community are unhappy with the current situation, and as such this has prompted us to review the alliance logo submission process.

Right now, we’re exploring options both legally and in terms of development to put a more robust system in place for the display of alliance logos in EVE Online. As such, while we work on this new process we are placing submissions for alliance logos on hold temporarily.

This means that if your alliance logo is not already in game, then it has been placed on hold until we finalize a new process. At this time we don’t have an ETA for the delivery of a new alliance logo system, as this will take development time that is still to be factored into our schedule for future releases.

Once further information is available, we’ll be sure to keep the EVE Community updated. In the meantime, if you would like to discuss the current situation with Alliance Logo Submissions, please do so in this thread.
