EVE Online player counted among the victims of mass shooting

    
44

The mass-shooting in San Bernadino, California, on Wednesday apparently claimed the life of a popular EVE Online player.

According to friends on TwitterFacebook, and Reddit, Robert “Photon Torpedo” Adams of the Bastion corp was among the victims of yesterday’s violence.

“He is flying between the stars now, may he have a safe travel,” wrote one player on Facebook, only to be echoed by dozens more. Said a friend on Reddit, “Rob was the definition of a stand up guy. One of the nicest, most respectful people I have ever met in this game. I started playing the game as a young teenager when I met Robert. He was a huge influence in my younger years and taught me a lot about the game and life in general. I will miss all those late night debates we had. I learned a lot from him, and will miss him deeply. Fly safe in the heavens bro.”

Friends of the family have set up a charity site for his widow and baby girl, to whom and to his crew we extend our deepest sympathies.

I heard that some EVE player in SYRIA got killed some time ago.

Wasn’t expecting that.

So sad . I believe an Ingress player was listed as a victim as well.
