EVE players to get a 16 foot erection (in their honour)

EVE monument to players constructed

If you're playing EVE, there's a good chance that the name of your main character is going to be immortalised in Reykjavik, Iceland. CCP is constructing a 16ft-tall behemoth in its hometown to honour the players who have joined them on their decade long journey through space. 

All active EVE players as of March 1st will have the name of their main character etched in stone, which is absolutely going to freak archaeologists out when they discover it a thousand years from now. "They named their children things like Bigbootypirateman?"

The monument will be unveiled just before this year's Fanfest, on April 30th and was created by Sigurður Guðmundsson with assistance from art directors from EVE itself: Börkur Eiríksson and Ásgeir Jón Ásgeirsson. Acting as a time capsule, a laptop will be buried under the statue containing video messages from CCP staff and EVE players. 

"Our intention is to immortalize the contributions of the millions of people of the EVE universe in a way that extends beyond their immortality in our games", said CEO Hilmar Veigar Petursson.

"Honoring them as part of a timeless monument shows how virtual lives and adventures have reached a new level of meaning and impact that weaves into and enhances those that happen in this world.

"We are humbled by all those that have joined us on the journey so far, and it's our hope that this physical piece will continue to gather energy and relevance into decades to come, becoming like EVE Online and outliving us all."

Cheers, CVG

Damnit I played Eve for 7 years but I'm not subbed currently. Feel I should re-sub for a month just to get my guys name on there.

Me too, had to quit as I started a family and raising that empire requires all. But to have my toons name in stone would be cool for cost of just one month.... must be strong.

It's 16. But that's 5 metres, so maybe that's why there's some confusion.
