CCP is really Scrooge?

I chose the fuel block option from the Christmas gift selection. 1000 blocks of each type. Imagine my surprise when I went to redeem the gift and was told I was getting 24 blocks of each type. Less than a hour's worth of fuel?

CCP? That's not on.

Humbug!

It would help if you read some of the other topics. A GM has already said the amount in the redeeming screen is the number of BATCHES, so it's 24 batches of 40 blocks per batch (I think there's some remainder there to make it an even 1000).

I saw the same thing, but redeemed it anyway. It ended up giving me 1000 of each fuel block, just as promised.

Thanks,

Was pissed, and to an extent, still am. The redemption screen says 25 blocks. The confirmation screen says 25 blocks. But it does give you 1000. So, problem solved. But there wouldn't have been a problem if they told it right in the screens. CCP is gonna get a lot of grief because, as usual, they don't seem to get English. Either that or, again as usual with CCP, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.

As to reading the forums? I searched the forums for fuel and fuel blocks, got a mass of unrelated stuff. I'm in the game to play it, not spend hours pouring over the mess that the forums are. :)

... and apparently to spend the time complaining because you "thought" you were being short changed, but were mistaken.

This gives us all an excellent opportunity to slap people around for yelping before they are stung.

Tis an excellent holiday bonus gift, THANK YOU CCP! Smile

Someone must hate the GM guys..

And by someone i mean someone who got that idea to put those items in "batches".
I can imagine about 30k petitions created. Or maybe even more.

As i wrote before .. give people chance to chose
and be stoned to death.

Give them an surprise
And live happily ever after. Cool

Oh yes, the blonde joke...

Blonde: How many blocks do I get for Christmas

CCP: 25

Blonde: Cries, runs to forums, cries moar, contacts CNN, files lawsuit, tells all her friends (her cat and her doll)

CCP: /sighs

Blonde: logs in, collects all the fuel blocks as promised and giggles in the corner

CCP: Puts Blonde's name on the 'List'

Good luck next time you really need help Big smile
