So just what is Crowfall’s Dregs campaign exactly? Perhaps you’ve missed out on all of the references to the GvG world, but J.

On Tuesday evening, over 2,000 EVE Online players gathered to celebrate Chappy78 Chapman’s 42nd birthday by gathering into two massive armadas and blasting each other to smithereens. Representatives from every major player alliance in EVE showed up (along with a few developers from CCP Games), many sporting their biggest, most expensive ships to sacrifice in the mock battle. Billions of ISK, the in-game currency, was destroyed just for the fun of it.

This birthday will likely be his last, he tells me over Discord, and he can’t think of a better way to have spent it.
