Over $190M Raised for Typhoon Relief - EVE Online - MMORPG.com

Thanks to the EVE Online PLEX For Good Campaign, a special fundraising live stream and the generosity of players, CCP and its community raised over $190,000 for relief efforts on behalf of victims of the recent Philippine typhoon.

While the interactive content of the telethon was on the lighter side, the heartfelt thanks from CCP’s development staff to its players is very sincere. Every milestone was reached and well surpassed.
“We often talk about how EVE is ‘real’, a simulation of humanity where there are few rules and all the economic, political and social forces of human nature push the boundaries of morality in all directions,” said Hilmar Veigar Petursson, CEO of CCP, “We’ve seen the passionate side of our players over the past decade, but truly nothing could prepare us for this level of generosity from them. It is humbling. It is beautiful. It is what EVE is really about.”
