Damn, I was hoping you would allow my ammo of snowballs to re-freeze so that I can use them again.

I agree. It's just a bunch of stuff that's only useful to newbies. Couldn't we get a bonus remap or some free SP or something else that would be useful for everyone? I have over half a billion in my wallet and another several hundred million in assets. Why should I care about a free vexor and a skill book that everyone who has been playing longer than 2 weeks already has?

Hasn't it occurred to anyone that disagrees with the gift that they can just ignore it altogether?

It is free. Stop complaining or I'll call your parents.

If I gave you a broken TV for Christmas would you be happy or would you complain that now you have to carry it to the curb for the trash truck? Why is clogging up my sell orders with useless crap and bending over the cruiser manufacturers something I should be grateful for? Both my suggestions were things that would be useful for everyone and wouldn't screw over industrialists.

I wonder what you get if you don't select anything. Could solve your trash problem right there. And just because it's not the 50" LED TV you bought yourself doesn't mean that 19" CRT is broken.

I'd fix it, and then I'd be saying: "Hey! Free TV!"

Sure I could if I wanted broken TVs all over the place.

The color sucks on LED. Plasma FTW.

No, you'd be complaining that the "gift" costed you $60 in parts and now your soldering gun is out of wire.

Could this be the whiniest thread on the forums? There's a lot of competition, but I vote YES!

By the time CCP is done nerfing the sources of ISK and minerals you will appreciate those cruiser hulls.

Only the people who have been playing for 9 years should get the 9 year anniversary rewards. Then we'd really see some whining Pirate

Yeah, getting free gifts from CCP is nice and appreciated, but getting something special like the Snowball's and Launcher was extremely unique and fun, not to mention it'll always be remembered. Hell, each winter I scan the universe looking for that elusive 'Cold Wave', hoping for a chance to re-freeze the melted snowballs stored in station.

Another thing that would be memorable is a chance to get one of the various 'Limited Edition' collector ships that have been previously introduced into the game, such as the rarely seen Interbus Shuttle, the new Quafe Industrial, etc.



Anyway, of all the gifts being offered, this one looked interesting:

A Paxist Treasure - Pax Ammaria - Collector's Item

I wasn't sure what the Pax Ammaria is so I did an Evelopedia search and found this page created by CCP Abraxas:
http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Pax_Ammaria_%28Chronicle%29

Quote:
Something interesting will be here soon ...

Lol

I imagine the Pax Ammaria will be similar to the Pax Amarria. I have that item and still can't find a use for it in-game.

You underestimate my prowess at fixing broken TVs and my nearly inexhaustible supply of spare parts.

Are you perhaps one of those people then when they find $10 on the street complain that it wasn't $20?

Just generating out of thin air useful items is a pretty bad thing to do in a player run sandbox. Players wont get a chance to sell their minerals to make those ships, or use their LP/storyline rewards to get those implants.

Yeah, yeah, free things shouldn't cry...

Would take remaps or gimmicky vanity/collectors items over 250K +4 implants suddenly appearing ingame.

Dunno why people are upset about the stuff CCP has arranged to give away. Don't like what's offered? Don't take it. Besides, It's EVE's birthday, not ours. Shouldn't we be the ones giving EVE a gift? ;)

Sooooo, yeah.

Choice of both, better... yet then rage for even more free isk is certain.


I love useless spinny ship! Go zephyr!


Thought the zephyr could be used for wormhole exploration, due to its super small sig? Or was that a bunch of malarky
