Yes what are those trading cards?

I think they're just collector's items. I bought the ones I didn't get in the gift bundles because they were cheap and why not?

i would just hold on to everything, especially the frigates. They will probably become very valuable after almost all of them are suicide ganked.

Doubtful. only limited edition ships have become valuable. The others that were given to everyone is still cheap.

Despite people getting new ships and some fun items, I've seen an incredible amount of bitching about how useless the trading cards are, or WTF is this honour tank thing, from people who just don't get the jokes. CCP doesn't have to give us a thing, but in this entitled society, even free and fun things brings out the ingrates.

They show the team captains/participants for each team in the New Eden Open (One even has my name on it).

This is my favorite of the cards: "Postcard From Poitot: Interesting fact: Poitot is the only named system in the Syndicate region".

It's also wearable by female characters.

I got One unit of lag with the description "Made of an unusually dense piece of material. Time seems to slow down around it." I laughed thinking back to the times before TD when the server would just implode when a big fight happened.Although the Animal Medical Expert with the "tastes rather sour." was intresting

Boots.ini is still my favorite. XD

Lot's of pirates actually buy novelty items found in missions in large quantities and put them in the cargo of every ship they fly into combat. It gives the ship (and it's lossmail) a little more personality. I was actually very excited with the 'A Tank Of Honor' Item. I bought enough of them to have one in the cargo of every expensive ship I intend to someday lose. I'll be crushed if my Vindicator doesn't have A Tank Of Honor and the corpses of my enemies in it's cargo when the lossmail finally comes around

I was sad about some of the items i got free, the buttan for one as i would literally kill for a buttan like that which would let me actually do something random on each press, the cards as there's not enough of them to start a TCG and the books I recieved i sadly can't read as I can imagine they would be a great laugh and an interesting read. Basically, I was happy as hell with these gifts just my imagination ran wild and I'll have some laughs to myself about what could come from them.

Technically I didn't (RL happened), but I was a registered member of the team.

Been getting this crap for a number of years and this is the lamest year ever. Snowball launchers again? Fuck, just as bad as playing WOW... So sad CCP...

Capsuleers were greeted yesterday with additional holiday gifts under the 'redeem item'-button, following an extended downtime from 12:00 to 12:30 UTC.

Gifts appear to be randomized to a degree. Every capsuleer received a random Genolution Core Augmentation, which increases an attribute by 3 (depending on which slot implant is given), while also providing an additional 1.5% power grid bonus and a 1.5% capacitor amount bonus.  Implant bonuses for a set are 50%.

Pilots also received faction exploration frigates, which includes one of the following: a Sarum Magnate, a Sukuuvestaa Heron, a Vherokior Probe, or an Inner Zone Shipping Imicus.

Finally, pilots also got a random assortment of New Eden Open trading cards, a replica of a random item, and an assorted variety of commodity and gag items such as "carbon", "a big red button",  a "Key to Open the Door", a "Donut Holder", and more.

On December 13, pilots also received an update that included a festive launcher and snowballs. Details of that update can be found here.
