Perhaps this has been addressed in one of the many dev posts around this subject, but I've missed it if so. Please be gentle.

Is there a time limit on the redemption of the Christmas gifts? That is, I selected my gift within the proper timeframe, and now it awaits me redeeming it. Can I leave it in the redemption system indefinitely?

Gifts chosen through the Choose A Gift program will not expire from your redeemable items.

From my perspective I spent most of December off the forums and I didn't see the announcement on the launcher because of all the eve related ads and updates during that time. I finally found out about it by clicking on a link during character selection (which I hardly ever pay attention to). Once you do go to the account page you get no in game notification that you "did it" right. I would have preferred if you saw the gift icon in the corner and then that would have taken you to the dev blog.

Way to go above and beyond what's needed and help those who cannot RTFM. Blink Also nice for those busy during the December holidays, though there was plenty of time, IMO.

Have you estimated how much time will go into sorting out this petitions?

How will this affect the waiting time for other petitions? - Now the waiting time for first answer of petitions is around a week if not stuck.

Hmm, I don`t see any option anywhere for me to claim any 'free gift'

(Could this have to do with only having just re-activated my account again, mean I`m not eligible, even though I`m playing again before that 5th Jan cutoff date?)

Prime example of why people complain because they are too lazy to read a few simple lines and why CCP has to open their petition system to numbnuts flooding it with requests for something i think at least 70 % had an original chance to receive it the first time.

Sorry, nothing personal but just the prime case in point for why people miss out on stuff.

Here ya go for your answer;

If you had an active paid account from November 29th to December 5th you are eligible to receive the Genolution CA-1 implant.
If you had an active paid account from December 12th to December 21st you are eligible to receive the Genolution CA-2 implant.
If you had an active account from December 12th to January 5th then you are eligible for a choice of gift from the Choose A Gift program!

Can someone explain how the bonus remap works in relation to the remapping timer?

If I use my normal remap and then four months later my bonus remap, will the remapping timer reset or continue?

i've heard it said that if you use your Standard Remaps the timer for the next one starts while the Bonus Remaps do not count as Standards. so you could use your standards and have a Bonus in the wings while your standard recounts. as stated, so i've heard.

I had no idea a fuss was being kicked up over this. Anyone who plays EVE on a regular basis should have known about the Xmas gifts. I do agree the method to choose the items/s was a little obscure as not everyone visits their account management page on a regular basis. I'm sure the fuss over this pales in insignificance compared to the initial anger over the remap option being temporarily removed from the options available or indeed the massive hike in PI taxes. Sad

Just have to laugh at all the self-righteous drivel being spouted in this thread. Some peeps had legitimate reasons for missing one or more of the gifts - get over it. It's not going to affect you, unless you are a serial petitioner - just let it go!

We don't care for your gifts CCP those are just sweet rolls we do not need
If you really want to give your players a gift
- remove the Tier3 battlecruisers, they basicly useless unless your intend is to grief others
-return back to the pre expansion pi , we do not want nor need those those POCO they only serve the big alliances
-give destroyers back their RoF penalty
-Banned for making RL threats should be permabanned , unbanning someone who made RL threats because of PR reasons is bad very bad ,
- do something about FW , instead of promising us for years that it will change
- stop catering for the griefers and nulsec alliances alone , they only represent 10% of your customes
-

Doubt you will even read this you never do you never listen you don't care what your customers want aslong you get our money
I do not agree with what you are saying , but i will defend to the death your right to say it...... Voltaire

c'mon guys, time for a new dev blog.
#39 Posted: 2012.01.09 19:40
lol so Decembers a busy month, so you only give 5 days in January with new years, and work restarting? Really? Couldn't give another 10-15 days in January, but another 4-5?

Lame.

I STILL missed out on the gift :(

An email notification would have been appreciated.

Not everyone visits the website everyday - especially over Christmas and New Year.

Thanks anyway, it was a nice sentiment.
