Some of you might remember a article i did a week ago regarding the plex for good scheme CCP was running to support the victims of the Philippines typhoon disaster. Many eve players across new Eden have rallied together to support those who desperately need their help the and so far in only one week of this scheme being up Eve players have managed to raise a whopping $43,000. In that article i mentioned the fact that CCP would be doing a special announcement on the 27th of November regarding something they were going to do to encourage players to donate, well christmas has arrived early, and CCP Santa did not disappoint. (Please note CCP Santa is not an actual employee of CCP.)

This afternoon at 5PM GMT CCP Bro announced that on the 7th of December at 13:00 UTC CCP will be doing a 8 hour livestream featuring many of our favourite employees from CCP. The Stream will be held on CCP’s stream channel http://twitch.tv/ccp.

What will they do in those 8 hours you ask? Currently CCP have released a few of the activities they plan on doing:
– A play-through of the Danger game
– Some small developer roams
– DUST 514 matches between the Developers
– A sampling of icelandic cuisine (fish pretty much)
– Developer duels which can be best explained through the following screenshot:

What are the incentives to donate other then to thank CCP for spending time out of their busy days to do this stream you ask?
Well in addition to the 2 in game shirts you get from donating, CCP will be offering pledge goals which when hit will cause various CCP employees to do comical things in real life, such as:

For every $2,000 donated CCP Dolan will be shot with 1 paintball.
If CCP reach $50,000:
– CCP Lebowski will get the Minmatar logo tattooed on his calf.
– GM Spider will get the Amarr logo tattooed on his body.
– CCP Dolan will have the number 50 waxed on his chest.
If CCP reach $55,000, CCP Gargant will shave his head.
If CCP reach S60,000, CCP Guard will spar against an Icelandic Tae Kwon Do medalist. (my personal favourite)
If CCP reach $75,000, GM CiD will get the Wreckage sleeve tattoo from EVE Online tattooed on his arm.
If CCP reach $125,000, CCP Mimic will shave her head.
More pledges are set to be announced when the live stream goes live.

What if you have rare items in game or alot of isk but not alot of plex/real world money, can you still help?
Yes you can! Players across New Eden have begun putting up their own donation schemes such as one player’s Malice (an extremely rare Alliance tournament ship) up for auction, all the isk will then be turned into plex which will then be donated. This Auction ends 5th december though which only gives you a couple of days to place a bid for this limited edition ship.

      Does it really matter? It is either this way or pretty much 0 donation.

      im guessing tax law is not the same in Iceland as it is in my home country. There are some factors that need addressing though. So when a company makes a claim like “for every coffee you buy we will give 10cents to starving llamas” they get the write off, not you. Now when you say give a car to charity though, you would be the one eligible for the write off. In both cases you are buying something of value, then the money that item generates is being sent to a charity. In one case you own the value of the item (the car) and in the other the company owns the value of the item (the coffee). I havent read the fine print but I would assume it works more like the coffee and less like the car. Plex is a CCP product, and the money it generates is going into CCP coffers. The company has simply stated that the proceeds it does generate will be earmarked for the donation. So its not really your money being gifted, but CCPs. I THINK!

      Sometimes it’s iffy.. in this case, however, there are lots of people who play eve who are “Space Rich” but really have very little cash to make a donation themselves.. I applaud CCP giving the collage students and the like who have more ISK than they know what to do with a chance to support a worthy cause that they otherwise could not.

    I quit EVE a while back but seeing CCP do this makes me happy. My wifes grandparents live on a small island off of Easter Samarr. The whole area was completely destroyed, all houses gone the boats etc destroyed. No food and the “relief” supplies wont reach that area for another month the gov thinks. Im heading down there in December to spend my vacation helping them to rebuild their house.

  10. My wife and i felt now relieved when Chris could finish off his researching out of the ideas he got when using the weblog. It’s not at all simplistic to simply always be making a gift of steps many people have been making money from. And now we remember we need the website owner to give thanks to for this. The entire explanations you have made, the easy site menu, the friendships your site help to create – it is many overwhelming, and it’s making our son in addition to us know that that issue is interesting, which is certainly highly mandatory. Many thanks for everything!
