Let me ask the Elves (QA) Team in the Icelandic AM. I believe it is simple +1, but would prefer to confirm it.


Yeah, I'd like to know the answer here too, considering I and many other people got ****** over when learning skills were removed by item #2 there. Despite being told we were going to get "an additional" remap.


+1



I'm in the same situation. I'll have a remap available in next January and would like to know if the countdown won't restart if I choose it.


Big +1 to this question

I am curious about the effects of the CA 1 and 2...is the 50% bonus for the set only to each other, or is it to the set you might currently have plugged in? For example if I have a set of slave implants and put the CAs in, will the slave set bonus still be calculated as if you had the whole set?

Has anyone plugged in both? What is the overall cpu bonus you get?

Heretic! what is this fun of which you speak. Shocked Isn't EVE supposed to be a second job? (or first if you happen to be a mom's-basement-dweller or just taking the fun out of funemployment..)

So... if we take a ride down the slippery slope, does this mean that remaps will cost 2,000 Aurum in the future...?

I know the question is in the process of being answered, but I'd like to chime in and say that I would also like to see the gift remap handled separately from the regular, yearly remaps. For those with a remap saved up already, it can be a huge bonus to their training plans; for those of us who have used the remaps already, it'd be really sweet to get the same perk. I've got a remap coming up in just over a month and getting an extra remap on top of that would really make my next year of training easier to decide on.

That said, sweet gifts over all, thanks CCP. Keep up the good work! Big smile

Unique, one time items should be just that.

Unique.

One time.


Those items are not unique. Imperial apocalypses are unique, the pleasure yacht is unique, the golden magnate was unique. Those three ships where given out to everyone. There are hundreds thousands of them (so to speak), hardly collectors items and with limited functionality.

Anyway nice choice CCP, I am at a loss what to pick though.

CCP, is it any chance we can get that Nural Remap in the shape of a booster that can be traded like any other item before it is injected?

Hm, to pick your own present...

I think I'll stick to a principle about selecting items that cannot be acquired through other game mechanics, so it will proberly be a Zephyr and an Echelon...

Yes please, ask to the Elves how to kill a troll with a single arrow in his eye
... and an answer before the 21th of december would be nice especially for those who have no remap left and a timer.
Will the neural remap reset the timer or keep the timer with "one remap available" ?

Thank you for the free Christmas gift.

what about mining gifts? 50 T2 mining crystals for each ore.... or special ice mining crystals (12) or a hulk P


I agree with the sentiment, but not the quantity. Should have been three of each A/B/C T2 (for Hulk), one Merx T2 (for Skiff), and three of each Veld/Scord/Pyre/Kernite T2 (Hulk or Covetor). If that's not enough for costs, include Omber and Spodumain (Spod in particular as a consolation prize - anyone who's seen the small Null mining site knows what I'm talking about).

An alternative entry would be a Covetor and three T1/ORE strips. Don't even bother about Ice, even with me.

The real hardcores would want one of the MindLink implants. That would have been VERY tempting.


Anyway, to me this looks like one set of fuel BPOs and a tie between the Thrasher pack and Republic M pack.

I never intend to sell chars to re-maps don't matter to me. P

Dear CCP Santa!

I am most excited about all the gifts you are going to roll out and especially keen on that free remap. :-D

But wait...
We had that one last year and I was a bit disappointed - my regular remap was due on Januar 18th and I just got the remap 2 weeks earlier. While others had a definitive boost to their skill plans. This year, I assume this will happen again.
Although I wouldn't whine too much since you just want to be nice, I ask for this:

Could you somehow make the remap linger in the redeeming system for awhile (like 3 months)?
So that we can turn it in anytime during that period?

I assume the code for this mechanism has not changed, but that way a player could choose when to redeem and get the remap AT least 3 months earlier.
E.g. my regular remap would be on January 9th, I could wait till then, use the remap and redeem the Neural Surgery gift AFTER.

Yours,


Calorn

P.S.: I have always been nice and caused many explosions!

Nice gifts, was a bit disappointed though that the snowball launcher was not an option.

I would also love to know aboutt eh Remap option and if it resets the timer or not. I only ask as I have a character with no remaps available, but on the 27th of Dec I get my new one for the year. If I pick the remap option, I don't want it to screw it up and just have my cool down brought forward a week (and save me a total of 12 hours...woo! >.<) or if it stays in the redemption thing for a little while after selecting.

Thanks

how about a free boost in sec status? Its taking forever for me to get back to high sec after some unfortunate misunderstanding with the local law enforcement... over and over again. Twisted


and for all you boys and girls wondering about the remap, i'm sure it will be like when they took learning skills out and dished out two remaps for nothing. It didn't effect my yearly timer and I ended up with three

Well... a corpmate also ended up with 2 more remaps (but had one available before).
However, I only got one remap INSTEAD of the regular one that would have been available a few weeks later anyway. And no, no extra one after that date passed.
I just don't want to repeat that experience. :-D

Am I the only who doesn't see "Neural Surgery" aka remap?
