On March 11, 2011, the Miyagi prefecture was hit by a 9.0 MW earthquake located off the cost of Japan, and the resulting tsunami devastated large portions of the Japanese coastline. Thousands of casualties have been reported. Power is out, and several nuclear plants are in severe crisis, with radioactive leaks being reported as radiation seeps from protective barriers never designed to withstand earthquakes of such magnitude. Millions are without water, and as each hour passes, illness, hunger, fear and death encroach upon the many innocent people.
Beginning March 14, 2011 and ending March 31, 2011 at 23:59 UTC, CCP will be accepting PLEX donations for PLEX for Good: Japan. Each donation will be converted into cash currency and donated to the Red Cross.
To make your PLEX donation:
* Contract your PLEX to the “CCP PLEX for Good” character, and please make sure the character is in the “C C P” corporation and that the name is spelled correctly to avoid scams.
* Contracts will be accepted within 24 hours of submission, though usually sooner than that.
CCP regards any scamming attempts surrounding this effort to be morally reprehensible and they will be met with swiftest action.

PLEX for Good is an on-going charitable program initiated by the players of EVE Online. Past drives have assisted the victims of the Haiti earthquake and excessive flooding in Pakistan. To date, EVE Online players have donated over $63,000 USD (over 3600 PLEX) to those in need via this program, with almost $100,000 USD being donated by EVE Online players to charity since 2004.
A plex is something around 360-380 million, not a great deal for us older players but for newer players it can be quite a hefty sum so I suggest clubbing together to help out. A days ‘work’ can help out so many.
Only three matches were played last night, the top two clashing heads! The overall outcome was a draw, 1 win and 1 loss for each.
