Welcome to Jester's Trek.
I'm your host, Jester. I've been an EVE Online player for about six years. One of my four mains is Ripard Teg, pictured at left. Sadly, I've succumbed to "bittervet" disease, but I'm wandering the New Eden landscape (and from time to time, the MMO landscape) in search of a cure.

The critical questions

As of this morning, the option to select an Attribute Remap has been removed from the holiday gift selection page in your CCP Account Management screen.  There were a lot of questions surrounding this potential gift, the two most critical being:
  1. Would the remap add to the current number of remaps available on a character, or would the remap have to be selected at the point it was received, on December 22?  And,
  2. Would the remap be added to each character on an account, or would only one character per account receive the remap?
In the past, when "free" remaps have been given, they added to a stack of remaps available for that character, to a limit of three remaps per character.

While these questions are being answered, the option to select the remap has been removed.  Here's CCP Navigator's post on the subject, which doesn't say a lot, and here's CCP Guard's:
The remap gift is being looked into, we should have news for you shortly. Thank you for your patience!
Sounds a bit like God's Final Message to His Creation, tbh.  ;-)  Stay tuned.


EDIT (13/Dec/2011): CCP Guard has posted a more official communication.

    No, this only applied if you had a remap already available and unused.

    If you had no current remap, then the "free" remap would simply reset your countdown timer to "Now". So, for players who were already scheduled to receive the annual remap within a month or so, the "free" remap wasn't considered much of a gift.

  2. @Anon0947: Yep, you're correct. I should have stated that more precisely.

    I may just be getting a shuttle now.
