So drunk. So hungover. So much fun. Roundtable rooms too small, just like last year. Stench starting to build. I’m probably adding to it. Wife having a blast. Time to drink.
CSM election lost. CSM 7 members shocked and offering to personally help me with my campaign should I run again. CSM 8 members not as shocked but were still hopeful as I was to secure a seat and assure me my voice will still be heard over the coming year. Finally drank scotch with Hilmar. Told him I’m applying for Jon Lander’s job as I am actually very qualified for it. Told John Lander the same to which he replied that he was going to contact me about mobile stuff anyway and hopes I get involved in some capacity with the future of the game. Heard resounding from every dev I spoke with about the CSM and about joining CCP. Fans were very supportive with alcohol at my CSM loss. Thanks for that.
Overall I’m content with those on CSM 8 but as always it’s about actions and I will be watching closely.
Was so difficult to leave Iceland this year, not just because I was out until 5 AM the final night, waking up at 8 AM to get ready to head back to Canada, but because I do not know if I will be returning to Fanfest. My wife and I had agreed that the 10th anniversary would be our last. There is still so much of this tiny planet we wish to see.
We’ll see what happens.
I will miss seeing all of you face to face, but in the meantime, we always have this blog. We always have Roc.
Well you got my two votes. Also seriously, CCPs mobile direction has been “coming” and “crap” for years.
Thanks, and yes.
So /that’s/ what you meant with “going out with a big bang” – emphasis on the first half. Good thing I got my share of Roc time in while I could!
Had votes from me, Roc !
And too bad about other fanfests, although I hadn’t realized you had been to so many.
Next year will be my first.
If you end up working for CCP, I’m not how you will have much of a choice, you might have to attend more Fanfest’s!
