We reached out to Drendan Brain for comment, but his phone always went to a busy tone and his emails keep getting returned to me. The cold may also have been brought to the event by 19 other attendees from the UK, the EVE: Valkyrie team from the UK, or literally anyone going through any airport, but that wouldn’t make a snazzy headline. However the outbreak started, hundreds of EVE Online players were potentially exposed and many are now crawling into bed with some chicken soup and a cup of hot lemon. Get well soon, space bros!

I was fine till my layover in Cincinnati – half the people there were coughing a lung out and it felt like some plague movie!

Caught con crud also but mine is more sinus. Plus, I still sound like I'm gargling gravel

To all nerds going to public eve events. If you're going to be sick, please take precautions so you don't literally infect 100's of people.

For the record, the real villain of the piece is Tina Lauro Pollock, who came home sick just days before EVE Vegas and infected everyone in the house.
