Time to crack open my old original Simon&Schuster distributed Second Genesis box I guess?

Edit: WTS: Commissioned Officer Edition code?
if that is a bad thing, then I am actually joking.

In the Announcement it also states that
"PLEX Activation codes, EVE Starter Pack codes and other Reseller codes (including promotional codes for ship SKINs) will still be redeemable on our website."

Does this mean that my steam eve starterpack will no longer work or simply that it is redeemable if i want to ?

Steam stuff is completely unrelated to this announcement.

It's a different type of Aurum, so afraid not.

If have no interest in making then upgrading an extra account in the next ten days, please send me the address to post my opened second decade collector's edition box to so I can get a refund, all codes are intact.

I imagine the 4 I gave out as presents will be returned as well.

EVE Online, now exactly the same as all other MMO's, dirty robbing *.*

Its not that the Dev's have never been hi-sec miners, more that if they ever admitted it they'd be designing new pattern's in the dust as they sweep the car park. Would you employ someone who spends all day mining in hi?

This seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to do, except for the timeframe.

Eight days notice for obsolescence of physical merchandise isn't a good idea.

Make it three months, and the complaints will all go away (because who still has one of those keys...)

Russian boxes of "Captain's Patent" which incluided 30 days of gametime, merlin and 35day booster implant are 'starter packs' or CD-keys?

In the case of the Collectors Edition, the only CD key inside that box is the 60 day new account creation CD key. The remaining items are codes (DUST code, Mystery code and EVE Online code). The 60 day CD key is designed to upgrade a trial account or create a new account and that's the CD key which will stop working after the 15th.


So instead of giving out new stuff for the Collectors Edition owners (mystery code *hint*) you are now taking things away? Nice.

Hi guys, CCP Sales guy checking in.

As mentioned in the post above, CD key is a key that comes with a CD or was sold by us as a CD key, rather than code/ETC/Mystery/PLEX .

In the case of the Collectors Edition, the only CD key inside that box is the 60 day new account creation CD key. The remaining items are codes (DUST code, Mystery code and EVE Online code). The 60 day CD key is designed to upgrade a trial account or create a new account and that's the CD key which will stop working after the 15th.

If you have an unused CD key (at this stage it should be either a trial CD key or a CD key from a boxed version of EVE Online), you will have to redeem it before the 15th.

Looks like I'll get a new alt Lol.

Thanks for the reminder!

Remove standings and insurance.

Be very cognizant, what you are telling your entire marketplace is not to trust you.

Reconsider the time frame for this immediately.

I'm coming back to playing EVE nowdays, and ordered a collector editions, but i's not arriwed before 15th of Nov. Maybe I made a bad decision of trusting in EVE.

I'm thinking that this type of announcement should be longer than one week.

I had a busy week and not much time to read EVE news, i almost missed this important change. You should have announced this a lot earlier! This news should also be in the EVE launcher and not hidden somewhere in the forum.

Looks like i have to start making plans for my new alt.

OMG ... too late ... have also 5 additional CD keys available
These are now completely non-redeemable? Also not for some Alphacharacters for 30day training?

Have not read the communication before ... very short communication of 11 days before end of the CD keys from CCP Sad
