Socializing in EvE

One of the greatest strengths of EvE as a game is that it is single server based. As others have observed, although the technical hurdles are difficult, the social implications are enormous. Whereas for a WoW event for example everyone tends to segragate by server, in an eve event everyone tends to segragate by alliance. If you meet someone in the street who plays EvE you can meet them (and blow them up) in EvE. This makes for a very different dynamic.

About every 2 weeks a small sub section of us in montreal have been getting together every second Friday night at a pub downtown to shoot the breeze. Due to a change in schedule we've moved it to Saturday night. Last night we managed to get 10 of the montreal pilots together at one place at one time. A fine time was had by all. I'd like to thank Crazy Kinux and all the others who showed up. For those that show up again, see you in 2 weeks.
