So the final "extra special gift" are snowballs? Or am i missing something?

This is a bit disappointing to be honest because you gave away much better stuff before, like the 4-skin pack, the cerebral accelerator or 300 Aurum.

In general the gifts were pretty good though. Thank you.
Check your ship hangar.

The Venture and Venture SKIN was given out on the 24th I think - or was it 23rd?

The SKINs and Aurum are nice, Accelerator useful, the other stuff probably depends on wether you enjoy their self-reflective humor, which means for some they will be enjoyable, which is good.

When I logged into EVE last night to see what CCPs special surprise would be, I had the same feeling I had as a kid before christmas. Back then it was never about how expensive the gifts were, just about the overall excitement. It even mattered more if my parents like what I gave them, to see them smile about the little crap I came up with, made my day.

So the "special gift" was a Snowball Launcher. If my parents gave me a real life Snowball Launcher I'd probably had terrorized the neighborhood all the way through summer and if they gave me a 2nd one the year after, I'd be happy about it again. As an adult I'm happy to feel the same excitement for things to come, but sad that I can't feel the same joy to get yet another snowball launcher in EVE. Not saying it is total crap, but it doesn't make me feel like CCP cares about making me glow with joy.

On the other hand I didn't do anything to make CCP happy, so I don't deserve ****. Ungrateful little bastard that I am :D

Merry Christmas everyone. o7

You already got it, the launcher, snowballs, and skin was the Christmas day gift.

They didn't have to give you anything. yeah it was a bit underwhelming, but so what, its better than not getting anything at all.

"Cheap SKINs"... well, so what? That just says that you don't care about SKINs other than for their value in ISK. That's okay. I personally would prefer a new toy over some ISK. I wasn't around at the time, but imagine the first time the Gnosis came out a load of people were actually thinking: "What is this thing? It looks cool. It can do some things, but maybe nothing quite right. Only one way to find out!" No matter if ship, module or anything usable: I like presents that you can play around with.

Edit: and I do like the Guristas Beer Glass!! Really Badass

Cheap skins? Cheap anything. They could have given everyone a frakin' titan and people would complain.

You know why?

Because dumping half a million of anything into the game at once makes it pretty much valueless. No matter what it is. The utter lack of intelligence and basic common sense coupled with the typical gamer entitlement in here astounds me sometimes.

Get out of your little bubble, people, and look at the big picture before hamhandedly pounding keys in rage.

the longer the thread the higher the likelihood of a foozie comparison
