For many members of BRAVE Collective, today is a day of remembrance, for Eve players that have been lost to us over the years. For BRAVE this event is an anniversary of one member in particular, John Bellicose.

In his announcement to the Alliance, head of HR and CSM X member Cagali Cagali wrote on the BRAVE subreddit,

92888420_256My Dear Friends.

I know You’ve all been desperately hanging out for this event, and It’s going to be GLORIOUS. This is a celebration of all the people we’ve loved and lost in the game, from John Bellicose to that guy who told that awesome joke that time, that you’ve never heard from since.

This game is all about the people, and it’s the people that make it special.

Now the bad news, and you’re going to hate me when I say this:

I’ve had to push the fun and celebratory Event Back a little bit.

Multiple reasons, but mostly that I couldn’t secure an appropriate system in time. Not going to half ass this thing – We need this done right, so we’re going to change the date a little bit, and hold the massive New Eden Wide Mega Splash Celebration on the 30th of May, 2015*.

The Event will kick off at 0001 on that day (eve time), and there will be craziness all that day until 0001 on the 31st.

I ask your patience and understanding at the delay.

I apologise wholeheartedly.

However:

The Passing of John Bellicose, and the kindling of the Broadcast for Reps flame in New Eden will not go unmarked, and so here is the deal.

We will be keeping a cyno lit in YZ-LQL from downtime to downtime.

Cynos have been used in memorial services across new eden forever, and this one will mimic the eternal flame. I expect people to try to come kill it. I expect people to defend it. If it goes out, we relight it instantly. I expect people will come to visit and light their own tributes.

This is going to be our chance to remember our fallen friends, to broadcast for reps, and to have a little bit of fun with it.

So: As the server comes up after Downtime on the 29th, someone will undock a boat and fire it up. It’s up to the rest of us to keep it alive until the server dies on the 30th by hook or by crook.

We will be supplying free Cynos and free Ozone.

Thanks m’lords and ladies,

Hope to see you there.

As of downtime today (29th of April) the first cynos were lit to mark the start of the 24 hour vigil until downtime on the 30th of April.

If you have Eve friends that you have lost and want to remember them, light a cyno in their name or contact Cagali Cagali either via twitter @Cagali_Cagali, or ingame and BRAVE will light one for you.

  6. Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your site in internet explorer, would check this… IE still is the market leader and a big portion of people will miss your excellent writing because of this problem.
