hello!

just received a mail with the following:

Quote:
You are part of New Eden's history

Quote:
ON THE HOUSE, FOREVER!
PLAY EVE ONLINE FOR FREE

Greetings Khelladan,

Enjoy EVE Online for free! You can access many popular ships, skills and modules. Take part in fleet battles, player-run corporations or just explore New Eden.

Join in the celebrations for Capsuleer Day and claim your free pod skin gift in the process.


PLAY NOW
SKIN giveaway ends 21 May


Fly safe and free!

- The EVE Online Dev Team


i know that the words "on the house" and "forever" are pretty strong and imply that you get something for free. which eve now is to some extent. but does this mail mean that i just am able to play EVE like every other f2p player? if so.. well, i got mails for that and information, too.

somehow i thought that this would mean some lifelong omega sub, which would be crazy tbh.

anyway. i am curious. this thing just came out of nowhere. please help me understand the context. :)

Yeah, I'd like to know also. Can I fly my old Rattler if I come back as free?

Thanks.

You must be special.


This is what my email said:



"Greetings Ion Kirst,

You still have an opportunity to join the citizens of New Eden in celebrating Capsuleer Day, so why not do so in style with a free YC119 pod SKIN?

As a celebrated capsuleer, you have until 21 May to login and claim your free gift, as well as the following items:

• 200x Barium Firework
• 200x Copper Firework
• 200x Sodium Firework
• 1x Festival Launcher

DOWNLOAD & LOGIN

SKIN giveaway ends 21 May


Be sure to grab your celebratory pod SKIN and wear it with pride.


Fly safe!

Funny thing is that I already claimed my free gift.

Always remember Tovil-Toba, and what was done there.

Alpha accounts are limited to their faction’s tech one weapons, ships and navy ships. You can find out more information here.

If at any point, you decide to re-subscribe and become an Omega clone, you will unlock access to all of your previously trained Omega skills, and you will be able to train new ones.

In the past CCP has given old inactive accounts mails and deals to get back into the game. 9 and 14 days free subs as well as reduced priced deals. Ive received a few over the years. This one was interesting to say the least as well. And yes kind of a bait and switch sort of marketing but then again thats what marketing is all about.Twisted

Have you heard anything I've said?

You said it's all circling the drain, the whole universe. Right?

That's right.

Had to end sometime.

Yeah, I received it for one account and was kinda puzzled about the "you're part of history" thing and the "on the house" part (eventually I figured they were talking about alpha, as in "it's free"), but the only thing I made for history was to hold several acounts. Is that what it takes? What?

What I don't understand is why a different character who redeemed the pod skin, has received a mail reminding to redeem the pod skin? Question

Anyway is not as if EVE marketing makes much sense at this point, it would take something dramatically good to make me play EVE again: a feeling "oh my God, that's IT, and I am MISSING it!". BearBlink

Yeah, I was thinking "yeah, this would be sweet, Free to play, you buy skins and add-on's is how they make money now, and I can see what new stuff they've put in........"
