Hmm. How about a new / old space station background for when docked, for Christmas? I like the Quafe/Pleasure Station one with the 'Lady of Light' and the traffic passing my dock.

Dear CCP Santa, can I please have a bonus neural remap again this year? I have been a very good girl eating my porridge each day.



meh .. have about 3 or 4 ... in fact my main is currently sitting in an implant free JC just cos I couldnt be bothered logging in and jumping back to something with better implants. Some people are too obsessed with SP.

If they give away bonus neural remaps you can have mine ... K.

Yule lads come 12th-24th, not on 1st of December. And if you are not nice you'll get a potato. We should all get a potato.


I got my first potato some time ago, it was a present from an in-game friend of mine - the first ship he ever made, the mighty Dominix.

This is not a signature.

I may or may not be willing to consider your invalid, validation of something to do with things that are not substantiated. In appropriate EVE fashion though, I will say. We didn't need those Yules anyway >_>

CCP this is the quality xmas gifts you used to give us before the yule lads ruined it all. :(

No Advent Calendar, No Yule Lads (yet) and no announcements on Christmas goodies. Sad

Im running low on fireworks and snowballs after popping everything that moved on Dec 1st! Oops

C'mon CCP when can we expect an update on xmas fun this year? - dont go all "Bah Humbug" on us now!

Anyone have any REALISTIC xmas present lists for the DEVs/Yule Lads this year??

i want . . . . .

more fireworks, more snowballs, another Festival launcher. . . . . . Smile

anything else CCP choose to give I will happily accept.

Oh and some coal (carbon) - its not a real xmas without some coal. What?

They already did. It was called WIS.

The repeated appearance of this comment in a subscription game....

It is like when people talk about free government services. Like they are funded by goodwill and puppy barks.

Paying a subscription does not mean you are entitled to anything other than a subscription.

It's not as if they ever advertised "subscribe now for awesome bonus goodies at XMAS time".

Why do people make such a fuss - it's gonna be the standard : a piece of carbon, maybe a Fedo and most surely a ship (that is in 90% of cases useless and is there just to be part of a collection ), as always.

As to what that ship is...hm....

12th, and no yule lads, no 12 days of xmas special. No advent calender.

Not even an announcement on anything xmas-y.

Apart from a "happy holidays" thread, how "BAH HUMBUG" are things going to get this year?

Guess I will have to go spend my hard earned (yeah right!!) ISK-ies on overpriced snowballs and fireworks on the market this year - Bah Humbug indeed!

Yule Lads ganked Santa last year...
CCP ganked Yule Lads this year...

No choices are left... it's time for the three Magi!

Well to be fair, how many of those Yule Lads are still working for CCP?

Anyway, all is NOT lost.

There is an event in game Sunday the 14th with some activities and prizes and such run by Santa Spirit who has done this several times and it's expected to be good. CCP has even donated plexes and faction ships.


Then CommanderA9 is having a snowball fight in Luminaire the following weekend. CommanderA9's events are also pretty good.

So - that's two events on two weekends, and 2 chances to see if it's possible to test that Egg Nog Tanking skill (flying while tanked on it, actually).

I'm beginning to suspect that CCP sees the players are "handling it" well enough that they didn't need to do anything particular - and player driven content is a cornerstone of the game.

Bring back DEEEEP Space!
