I am a regular on the Podside podcast. Have been for quite a while but they still let me ‘have the floor’ if I ask for it. I guess they are slow learners. Tonight (Saturday 29th November) I proposed 2 ideas and I want you to be a part of this.
1) Operation Northern Troll -; Very simple, I know we are looking forward to the Yule Lads but I want to give back to CCP. So I am sending them a Christmas card. All I ask is that you do the same. Not am email or electronic toss off, a real stamped and delivered physical piece of mail.
Is their address. Take a moment and send them a card. Simple, silly, trolling or serious, Christmas, midwinter solstice, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, or whatever your seasonal celebration, take a moment and send a card. Remember, snail mail is slow so you may want to act soon.
2) Now for the other thing. Operation Magic School Bus – I have been in the Rookie Chat channel for the past week, having a blast welcoming new players and helping them out. But the thing is, all the help is solo based and mainly PVE in nature. That wasn’t what hooked them, the trailer showed fleets and I want to give them a taste of that.
Here’s what I need. FC’S and rookie flyable ships. Hell, I will fit ships all day to get this going and will be but I need people willing to teach and take newbies out for a taste of what is to come. If you want to use it as a recruiting tool, go for it. I only ask that you not purposely lead them into a trap for giggles. There is no pride or skill gained nor is made. It does nothing for the game as a whole and not what this is about. Death runs I am okay with but not ambushes and traps. Let’s show them Evegate or see how far east/north/south/west you can get. Build or break a gate camp.
Show them another side of New Eden, the side you like.
If this interests you then send me an email in game. I could also use some ships, low end frigs, nothing big or expensive. I know that the Angel Project will be helping out but we can use your help, too.
So this is me, asking for you guys to give. A card, a ship, some time.
fly it like you won it
