Happy Birthday CCP!

I would like to know how long it is possible to redeem the gifts. If i reactivate an account will i be getting these gifts for that account, too?

I tried to look up and google these questions for some days now but i couldn't find an answer. So if anyone reactivated an account these days and received the gifts please tell me.

Thanks in advance,
Alan

If you think reactivating an acct just for the gifts is a thing, you are playing EVE wrong.

Reactivate because you want the character for whatever. Not because you get some implants and dirt cheap fashion accessories.

I want to use that character at a later time but anyhow he needs some training before i can use him the way i want. So don't you think it is a good idea to plex him now instead of later when i don't get any additional things?

The sooner the better, if you actually wanna use the char :)

Were they given to every account, or to every active account?

Past promotions have been only to active accounts.

I believe there was a window for returning players to also get the gifts, but the window may have closed already.

They have been given to every active account, but it was announced only two days in advance so i didn't see it soon enough. It might just be an imprecise description (every active account receives them on May, 6th ), because a corp mate told me that it is possible to redeem them until today.

Given to all accounts that were active on the 6th.

Also, EVE does this kind of thing every year on the 6th. ;p

If you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all...

Reactivate accounts if you plan them to be link alts.
How could you be so bad at this game...

I'm pretty sure they say that but if you activate before the redeeming window ends that items are there. I would have reactivated a few extra accounts last year if I knew that, as I was going to reactivate them anyways about a month later, but held off because I didn't think I'd get the items, and also wouldn't be able to play them anyways. But I remember activating an account, probably around Christmas? but after the active account "deadline" and I had items in my redeeming queue.

if someone wants to try and let us know?

It's not worth reactivating just to get the gifts - they are only worth about 200mil and falling.
