Those gifts suck t1 crusiers, skill books and cheap implants. Can you add the option for a remap? Give us the CA-1 + CA-2 implants. Its good that we have choice but give us some good items to choose.

I would have loved to have seen a return of the Neural Remap to the gift list. Nothing in EVE is more valuable than time. Saving it on training certain skills would be priceless.

Please consider adding the Neural Remap.

Thanks,

Calis

Anyone over 1 Month old ingame will be very disappointed with these gifts. Please give us something better, a remap would be nice.

Is it an Ammatar version of the book?


It'll be explained later on in the week Smile

So you guys do realize there are people who have been here for quite a number of years right? 9 years deep and it's cruisers and skill books. You really need to do something for vets for a change.

The advantage of a bad memory is that one can enjoy the same good things for the first time several times.

One will rarely err if extreme actions be ascribed to vanity, ordinary actions to habit, and mean actions to fear.

What!? Free stuff!? How thoughtless of you! We hate it all!

Whether or not you win the game matters not.  It's if you bought it.

The Pax book sounds interesting, will keep an eye out.

As for the mining crystals, is Mercoxit on the list? Most give out the 'order' as Merx, Ark, Bist, Crok, . . . Veld, so seems like its missing.

[Edit] And thank you for including them on the list.

They're making a huge deal out of a gift that 90%+ of the playerbase will find completely useless.

But I'm not CCP Soundwave, so what do I know?

I agree. I remember another game, where you got a Founder title for you char. This Title came/comes with a tocken ingame. This tocken than takes a itemslot in your charactor inventory, be more precisly in your mission-bag (which is already a little bit small). It means: When you get this Foundertitel, you will loss one free slot in your missionbag. And on top of it you cannt trash it, you can sell it neither. You cannt send it to an old, because stuff form the missionbag can be send to other characters. So Im happy about the gifts, because it could be, much much much worse.

So all fly save and enjoy your free stuff.

I would love to have those classes ingame. See here:

Ok, so why are there now fewer options and NO REMAP!

As a 2003 bittervet, a remap is the only thing semi useful. The current list is just a load of junk imo. I've trashed stuff more expensive than any of the items on the list just to tidy my assets up What?

The gifts are no real use to me on any account/character, so I'll hold onto them for a while and pass them on to some newbie who hasn't got them later in the year. Will save them a few iskies anyway.

Bit of a disappointing selection but its not like you're obliged to even redeem anything, free stuff but not very useful or interesting.

I started playing Eve on May 22 2003. Seems like a hell of a long time ago now :)

Oh my... http://www.eve-wiki.net/index.php?title=Ammatar_Mandate

Quote:

Spoilers: It was revealed in The Empyrean Age that the Ammatars are not as they appear. Consulate Governor Ana Utulf revealed in a public statement thus:
"History records that we - the Nefantar - betrayed the Minmatar tribes centuries ago to appease our Amarrian overlords. That is what the emperors what you to believe. But the truth is this: your ancestors collaborated with the Amarr to protect what remained of the Starkmanir tribe. The only way to save them from Paladin butchers was to take them in as slaves. This desperate act, designed by the Elders, was to preserve the whole of what we really are."

This knowledge was, apparently, a secret held by only a select few.

Yeah, I'm thinking the Pax Ammaria might be the gift of choice.

can we have 4 books to choose from? one fore each race? after all, what would a Gal want with a worthless fundie rag? (especially if he's stuck in a belt chipping away at roids!) we want something more entertaining and sensual. like maybe a stack of old Playclone issues?
