Well Played CCP Santa

The second round of Christmas Gifts were handed out last night by CCP – a random selection from (I would guess) 4 different re-skinned frigates, a special pair of boots, a special blueprint, 23 special Commodities, and 27 different trading cards, CA1 or 2 implants, or some Carbon (Coal).

Across my 3 accounts I got 2 of the different frigates types (3 in total), 3 implants, 9 special commodities, 10 trading cards and some coal.

Why was this done well by CCP?  There is a large amount of market trading going on as people buy, sell and trade these.  I’ve spent around 150M across Rens, Amarr and Jita picking up the remaining frigate hulls, at least one of each of the commodities, the boots, and a selection of the trading cards.  (Not going to get all of those.)  You could actually make a real profit at the moment – but I just plan to thrown them all into my storage container filled with these sorts of once off gifts and items of interest.  Its my hoarding tendencies…

    • I did see a number of those BPO for sale in Jita when I first looked, but didn’t buy as they were around 30M. A pity given their current buy order price…

      Interesting to see the price trends – suggests CCP definately had some of the items drop more rarely than others.

      Some of the stuff I purchased for my collection yesterday dropped dramatically in price, as was to be expected. Still, surprised at the number which have actually gone up.

      • Haven’t seen the BP anywhere on the market. Last i saw in Jita on BO it was over 160 M. The few that may have it don’t seem to easily want to depart of that BP for now.
