So when I fetch my gift from https://secure.eveonline.com/AdventCalendar/

It said: 1x Festival Launcher, 100x Snowball, 5x Livestock

Logging on and checking redeem, there's only 1x Snowball - someone made a mistake? Same for multiple accounts...


edit... altho when then in-game I got 100... seems to be a redeem display bug.

It could be 1 production run of snowballs, which then translates to 100 ammo.

It says 1 then when you redeem it it says "Redeemed 100x Snowballs at [Whatever station you're at]"

Now, more than ever, we need a dislike button.

lol. You could just make a thread titled "Blah blah blah blah", with contents containing "yada yada yada yada yada", and still get thousands of views.

You forgot the /c. Your posts look strange without it.

lol, I'm almost sad to read your edit. 1 Snowball and 100 launchers would have been hilarious. Big smile

Stupidity should be a bannable offense.

Yeah, this is a display bug for the portion size of ammunition in the character selection screen. You will get the correct amount.

Had no clue about it until I read this thread.

Which is a shame because its pretty damn cool.

There are people with numbers on them. Hover / click on the correct number(s). Then scroll down a bit.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

Yes, I figured it out just now. Didn't realize the numbers were dates since they are all randomly ordered.

Obviously one of the Yule Boys got into the marketing department and stole the announcement paperwork.
