Snippet -

If you’ve played MMORPGs long enough — or played some of the older ones especially — you’ve surely met or heard about a fellow MMO player who’s passed on, leaving both his or her real-world family and digital community bereft.

One such player was EVE Online’s Jeff “BigCountry” Waltman, well-known in the EVE community as radio host for the long-running EVE-themed Open Comms Show. His passing after a multi-month illness earlier this week has generated a long Reddit thread full of salutes in his honor. In fact, EVE players have thus far raised over $6000 on GoFundMe for BigCountry’s widow and young family, far surpassing the $1500 goal.
