I was looking longingly at an ad for EVE Online's Fanfest
a few minutes ago. I say longingly because it's a bit late to be booking airfare to Iceland for a couple weeks hence, to say nothing of getting off work. The event seems like a good time, though, and the icing on the cake is the in-game swag that CCP
distributes to attendees.
Sony Online Entertainment
does something similar for its annual Fan Faire
shindig, and I remember tons of exclusive items on display in the virtual homes of Star Wars Galaxies
fans who made the annual pilgrimages to Las Vegas.
It's bad enough that I never made it to Fan Faire, but it was infinitely worse that I wasn't able to get my collection-obsessed paws on rare no-trade paintings and whatnot (yeah, first-world problems, yada yada). What about you, morning crew? Do exclusive in-game event items rub you the wrong way?
