Fanfest 2016 Alliance Prize Draw!

By CCP Falcon

This year, Fanfest is going to be even more focused on the most important part of EVE Online – our awesome community and the bonds that develop between wingmen during their time spent in New Eden.

With this in mind, we are happy to announce that for the first time in the twelve year history of Fanfest, we are hosting an Alliance Prize Draw for Fanfest 2016.

To be eligible, alliances need to have a minimum of 10 registered attendees who have stated their alliance affiliation when they purchased tickets through our Fanfest ticket sales page on Eventbrite. If an alliance reaches 20 confirmed attendees, then the chance of a win will double.

If you didn’t enter your alliance affiliation when you purchased a ticket, fear not!

Every ticket holder who purchased their tickets can add their alliance information by logging into Eventbrite and doing so. A login link is featured on the ticket purchase confirmation e-mail that attendees are sent when they purchase their EVE Fanfest 2016 ticket.

If you experience issues logging into Eventbrite, you can contact Eventbrite support for help on how you can add and edit information you’ve submitted when you purchased your ticket. You can also contact Fanfest support for assistance with this too.
