EA's Earth & Beyond just held its first fan gathering. UO has had a couple similar Fanfest and Luncheon gatherings, and E&B appears to have reached this important community milestone. The daylong event was held in San Jose, California and featured game oriented discussions, competitions and prizes. Machines were set up to log into the E&B universe and some who could not attend in person were present through the monitors. You can read the full writeup here.

Earth & Beyond's First Ever Fan Gathering was held on May 24th, and was a successful event with lots of chats and discussions, prize giveaways, and a surprising amount of logged gameplay. The first attendee arrived onsite at 6am and the last attendees remained far later than the 8pm scheduled ending.
