My eyes lit up a couple of weeks ago when I saw that Raptr was going to live-stream a presentation on EVE with devs answering questions for 2 hours afterward. Of course, the program occurred at the same time as the CSM Town Hall on 16 November. And as any good EVE player would do, I went to the one offering loot. Raptr was offering a Collector's Edition to the two people who submitted the best questions to the devs and 20 rookie pirate ships to people who submitted questions.
I figured I wouldn't win a Collector's Edition, but a rookie pirate ship would really look nice to fly around high sec. So I decided to submit a question. But since the Raptr event was probably going to overshadow the CSM event, I figured I'd throw in a second CSM-related question. Here are my questions and the answers I received:
For all the devs: If you had to create a new character, what race would you choose and why?A few days later someone from Raptr contacted me and informed me I won. Turns out following the news and the CSM paid off. I waited until now to write about the win because I didn't receive my copy of the Collector's Edition until Wednesday.
For CCP Xhagen: In all your time working with the Council of Stellar Management, who was your favorite member to work with?
CCP Affinity: "Since beta all my characters are Minmatar, I really like their backstory and ship design."
CCP Karkur: "Is Jove a valid answer? Just because!"
CCP Eterne: "Amarr victor!"
CCP Xhagen: "Your question smells suspiciously like a trap! :) I'm going to take the diplomatic route and say that I made many good friends through the CSM and I talk with some of them still on personal notes, even though they've left the council.
"And if I say that Trebor is my fav, will that make him not run again? :P"
So while I didn't officially win EVE (I'm still logging in) I did win a copy of EVE. Now to figure out how to apply the codes.
