EVE Fanfest is an amazing event already, but this year's sounds like it's going to be completely nuts. The craziest thing they're doing is probably staging an event called Eve of Destruction, where MMA fighter Gunnar “Gunni” Nelson (12-0-1) will go up against CCP staff and special guests on May 2.
The CCP staff are great guys, and I don't want to see them get hurt, but they're going to as Nelson is a Brazillian jiu-jitsu specialist that has Viking blood in his veins. He'll go one-on-one with staff and guests in 10 matches. I expect injuries. This should be fun.
Watch along on CCP's Fanfest Twitch stream on May 2.
