I'm gone for 5 days starting the 23, so I won't get any of the gifts. Wtf.

You should be able to redeem the gift from the 23rd before you leave and the gift from the 25th will still be available when you get back - unless you have some way to login and get to the character select screen to redeem the gift from the 24th you will lose it.

Forum meltdowns are not in the holiday spirit. But I do so enjoy them.

Carry on, good people. Carry on.

There are several posts now about players missing some of the gifts because they are not at home or near a PC with EVE running. Makes me think what terrible places all those poor gamers are over the holidays that makes missing some pixels such an issue. Jail? X-mas deployment? Betty Ford Clinic?

That is kind of the point. The last present stays in redeem system 7 days though, so you are only missing 23 and 24....

I get to spend christmas with my family where my brother and sister in law decided to spend both thanksgiving and christmas with her family this year. I'd much rather be in an airport with no computer AND no cell phone than listen to everyone complain about this

So I've missed a couple of days because I just spaced having go log in. Well last night came home to find the internet not working and it wasn't up till I had gone to bed. But based on what the gifts were you aren't missing much. If you are a "collector" I bet you'll be able to find anyting you miss on the market for not many isks once the novelty wears off.

One useful thing I wish someone would do is create a list of what was given each day. For example I have no idea what I missed yesterday.

I think the [latest] set was a random Y-SKIN and two hats.
